Old, run-down property with stains on the floor, walls, ceilings and sheets, and creepy guests who appear to live there and stare at you. Reception was nice and friendly through. Overpriced for what it is. But there's nowhere else close by. No breakfast, no coffee, nothing. Iron was broken, TV remote control missing, everything is screwed to the walls.

We traveled here for the 2019 PGA Championship and this was pretty much the only thing we could find with anything left. It is within walking distance and direct sight line to the beach giving you a nice view of Stamford across the water. There is an Arcade and "Adventure Park" next door with mini golf, corn mazes, and more. Also a nice ice cream shop right beside that. That is essentially the only nice thing about this hotel, the location. The rooms themselves are extremely outdated. Small Tube TV with a mini fridge. That is it. The A/C in our room stunk of mildew so we did not use it. The bathroom was clean but very small and outdated. The beds were decent but used old bed sheets and blankets. The door uses an actual key that you get from the front desk and return on the way out. There is a nice "shop" in the lounge to buy snacks and drinks. The cell service is very poor but there is WiFi available to use. All in all if you are looking for somewhere to sleep this place will do but keep in mind you will be overpaying to stay here.

If you're planning to be in Bayville for a few days, skip the Tides. Rooms are not clean and they lack amenities. Check in anywhere else.The beach is right across the street, but that still would not prompt me to stay in a room here.

I grew up down the road from the Tides in the 1960s, and it was where my grandparents stayed on visits in those days when my parents were growing a family and room for guests was shrinking. Back in the day The Tides might just as well have been named "The Tidy" as it was nothing special, but clean, well-run and very much of its time. For us kids the pool was a huge bonus, and today it is much as I remember - apart from the much taller privet. The rest of the motel is rather less so. We arrived to our room in the late evening after a nice sunset dinner at the Bridge Marina Clam Bar. Temperatures were in the upper 80s. Upon opening the door the room was variably scented of funk and institutional cleaning fluids. The carpet was damp, as was the cushion on the one plastic deck chair. The AC worked, but the compressor, upon cycling down, thudded the housing like a fist. A cool bath came to naught when the drain stopper didn't work. Upon unfurling the bath mat a nest of spiders erupted into the bathroom floor. Finally, our sweaty, AC-free night was punctuated at irregular intervals by the gargling of the small refrigerator which resisted turning off as the frost caked around the freezer compartment would promptly and noisily begin melting. We considered demanding another room, but had already installed ourselves for the night with wet bathing suits and whatnot everywhere. In the morning I spoke with the desk clerk, who noncommittally said to my list of defects "OK. We'll look into it." Absolutely not worth the $130 paid, but really the only game in town and, for what it was worth, I satisfied my interest in revisiting.
