The front desk staff was exceptional! The service provided by them was above and beyond. The bar service was excellent. The restaurant's breakfast was poor. Not tasty and the server's attention left something to be desired.

This property could be so beautiful. It is on the beach and is convenient to carmel and monterey. I love that you can bring dogs and do bonfires on the beach. The views are amazing. Unfortunately, this time it has fallen into disrepair. The restaurant was closed half the week and there was not any staff. I heard they have been bought out and will undergo a remodel soon. I hope so, it could be a hidden gem.

Have stayed many times before and had a great experience. This time was not so great. Was told the restaurant was open for dinner only for it not to be. At check in time I was told I would get a phone call when my room was ready and I never received one. The water in our room only got hot 1/4 showers.

Bedding smelled like BO - like linens were not changed. Room Was musky rug was coming up around molding. It looks like they lined the walls to cover mold. Carpet was dirty and refrigerator stunk and didn’t work. Cabinet door was hanging off hinges and wouldn’t shut. It was a huge waste of money.

The view, the location, and the people are what sells rooms here at The Tides. Otherwise this is a 2-star ⭐️⭐️ hotel. There were multiple malfunctioning equipment items on arrival which caused a room change. Single pane windows and thin walls make these rooms very simple. Both rooms: paint chipping, artwork missing, ruffed up and failed carpet, chipped sinks. Seems the investment went into the entryway which is beautiful but the rooms are what need serious attention.

The locked gate near the jacuzzi didn't open with the key card. Towels were not stored on the deck nor was there signage on the pool deck that towels were available at the front desk. When I complained about this, the employee at the front desk was rude. The room was outdated and the bed was not comfortable. The deck chairs outside facing the ocean were very nice. I probably would NOT return here again.

The ocean view makes this hotel worth it- it’s not a luxury hotel but the ocean view more than compensates

We love this place, we come here several times a year. This time the air conditioner turned itself on every 45 minutes and make the room cold. My husband has end stage renal failure, he does dialysis at night while he sleeps. The freezing room made him extremely uncomfortable. We were offered a different room by the nice desk lady. Room 248 did the same thing; we could turn the fan to low but still the air came on about every 45 minutes That sucked
