Traveling from Illinois to Maryland, with time on the beach planned, we made reservations at the Tides Motel, as it was one of few reasonable money wise and it appeared to be ON the beach. We got there and while it is older, it was quite nice, as any beach motel from the days would be. AC worked fine, it...

Gonna be down there on Aug 25th 2013. Can't wait to relax and see some ocean. Very short walk to the beach like 50 yards away. Can smell that early morning coffee brewing UMMM UMMM. Look people, I have been going there with my girlfriend for years now. Always getting the same room and NEVER a problem. If you are...

Wasn't really impressed with this hotel at all. The location is okay, but be prepared to take a bus, cab or car to many attractions. The room price was affordable. But like they say, sometimes you get what you pay for. The worst part about the experience was the moldy damp smell in the room. It was overpowering. Our clothes...

This is a nice, clean motel - in these "times" nothing is cheap- good price all things considered. We've been staying at the Tides Motel for years. And return year after year. Family oriented - No "party-ers"

I have stayed here several times. While not the most flashy or luxurious location to stay, it serves its purpose and is very affordable. If you plan on spending most of your time outside of your room and you just need a cheap place to sleep at night, this is your place. The location is a good one too.

The second we got in the room, we put my infants baby carrier down onto the floor and the largest spider I had ever seen came down from the ceiling and into the baby carrier. We eventually got it out but it left a bad taste in our mouths for the remainder of the trip. Saw more spiders, the room...

Stood One night here was perfect literally steps away from the beach! That's great right? We certainly were pleased. Not a good location if u were looking to go to the boardwalk being that this motel is on 71 St and the boardwalk starts on 28th and goes to 1 St. We rented scooters to get around quicker. The service...

We have stayed here several times and it's a great place for OC. Away from the busy boardwalk but not a far ride or drive when you want to head there. Clean place and the staff is nice. If you are looking for a Hilton, this isn't the place but if you are looking for a comfortable stay in a...

Arrived 8/19 and the front desk clerk was very nice and efficient in getting everyone checked in; we arrived right at 2 PM and three people were ahead of us in line. He told us to let him know if there was anything we needed. On day four, we received a knock on the door from someone, I had never...

I felt that the Manager as well as the man that sat at the front desk (devon Washington) were extremely disrepectful and ignorant. As soon as I walked in I was threatened if we made noise and he had to come up to the room it would be ugly. Being that Ocean CIty is a PARTY town we went out...

“We enjoy the annex rooms which face a dead end road to the beach, Not much traffic.”

“You can see the ocean from the third floor of the annex building”

“The Annex will put you closer to the beach. If you don't mind walking up to the third floor, no elevators, it's quieter.”

“Rooms have a shared balcony, so if you're trying to pick between floors know that the 1st floor rooms are at ground level and face the parking lot. The 2nd and 3rd floors are accessible by stairs only.”
