Choose this motel for a 3 day visit to Laguna Beach for its price and location, and I think I made a good choice. I was greeted by name at the registration desk, and with a handwritten welcome note-card in my room. I had room 208, which is at the top of the building up two flights of stairs (not...

We checked in late about 10pm which at that time I would expect to get less then great customer service. I was met by Anderson at the front desk who was incredibly friendly and welcoming. He offered to match the less expensive price for lodging that I found online and helped us with our bags to the room. Room was...

Charming room with a very relaxed "beachy" feel...nice windows, air & light. Very friendly staff & reception. Convenient location a short walk to the center of town, shopping, dining, etc. Just across the street from a beautiful park running along the cliffs to the beach.

Very thankful for a last minute change in plans forced us to find a hotel in Laguna Beach. It was an absolute cute and very quaint hotel - wooden floors and antique bed. We stayed in a sweet Marilyn Monroe themed room...and enjoyed every minute. Julie was great checking us in, and gave us a number of restaurants to try...enjoyed...

Loved this place - spent a long time researching where to stay in Laguna Beach and almost went for the hotel option but prices seemed ridiculous and so glad opted for Tides instead. Had twin room on first floor at front - spacious, lovely light decor, clean - everything we needed. Can't remember the guy's name who was on reception...

The Tides is a beautiful small hotel with huge charm! Short walk to the beach and super friendly staff. Very reasonable rates and a nice pool and fire pit. This is not a fancy and expensive place. It is quaint, very clean and homey. Some guests noted that the location is too close to Pacific Coast Hwy and could hear...

This former motel, refurbished with excellent beds and period furniture, was the right spot for an overnight stay. There are costly lodgings everywhere on this part of the Orange Coast, and this one is the nice but not-so-expensive alternative. There's a pool but no spa, good in-room coffee but no lavish buffet, and fine local restaurants are in easy walking...

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.
