Room wasn't clean when we got there, trash remained from the last guests. Requested cleaning and didn't get it. Staff was a disinterested. Mattresses and pillows were lumpy. Ocean view was amazing, but I would not stay at this hotel again.

What I like about the Tides is it's consistency, good service, good people and good value. I can't think of anything I don't or didn't like.

We do apologize for the inconvenience. As we update rooms we are always looking to lessen the impact on our guests and construction noise is something we try to limit to appropriate hours. Please feel free to reach out to Tides and ask for Eric if you would like to discuss this further.

Great location and the staff was professional. They had done a good job on renovation. Hotel can be noisy at times. A good 4 star hotel. We'd return.
