"Tides charges an expensive nightly rate because they think they can because they are the only hotel in Folly beach that is oceanfront. Find a rental, if you can, this hotel/motel isn't worth it. The hotel is so old and has been redone and re-named but still needs a complete remodel and serious cleaning. The staff are not taking good care of the hotel common areas or cleaning the rooms well, even during COVID. There is blood and dirty smears on the walls and ceilings, the furniture and chairs are all very dirty, the floors in our room had hair, sand, and dust all over them, the toilets do not flush well (you have to flush twice and hold the handle on several in the hotel), the hot water is crossed in locations and never mixes with cold water, so you end up taking an extremely hot shower on a very hot day, or you get the uncomfortable hot shower after getting too much sun, so that was very challenging and painful. The mini frig in our room was broken, but they came and replaced it. The restaurant has very sub par food, but they charge you like it is 5 star....it is all a joke, if they want to charge people the price of a resort type hotel, than they just need to maintain it accordingly. Tides is honestly a dump. We will never go back and are telling everyone we know that it hasn't gotten any better."
