You surely get what you pay for. We have been here before in a room away from the highway. It was fine and the managers are very nice. This room, 201, is right on the highway. Avoid this room. It very small and felt dingy. I would stay here just not in the rooms that face the street.

We stayed at the Tides in Laguna Beach. This hotel is a botique style hotel. The rooms are decorated beautifully, a little small but very cute. The property has free wi-fi and parking. There is a pool area and fireplace for making S'mores!! Hotel is on the main highway and about a 10-15 min walk into town. The staff were...

The Tides gives a visitor a choice of vacation types, such as quiet and calm or poolside chat and swimming. The kitchenette is not too modern and has all conveniences. The office personnel are cordial and solve minor problems promptly. The room and kitchenette are up to date and have fewer edges to them. Very comfortable.

I am a frequent visitor to this motel. It has never disappointed. When booking a room, speak to Anderson and he will help you to pick the room that best suit your needs. I do not mind the traffic noise. And it is not all that bad. You will not find any other property in this general location for this...

Our room has extra chairs and plenty of light for reading. To our delight there was a mini kitchenette. Walking across the street took us to Heisler Park for beautiful views of the ocean and the many coves. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We would recommend the Tides.

The Tides is an older motel located in north Laguna Beach. Our first night we had a room right on the street which we found dark and damp however we were moved to a nicer room the rest of our stay. I believe it was room 108 which is close to the heated salt water pool. The staff are excellent...
