Don’t let the outside fool ya!
We stayed in number 155 on top. It looks to have been remodeled, very modern and cozy. However the beds are super hard. The thermostat in the bedroom doesn’t work like it should. You have to get up and cut it completely off for about 10 minutes before you can cut it back on. The views are amazing. Sitting in the chairs watching the ocean was amazing. The coke machine down stairs was sold out. The windows could be cleaned inside and out for better viewing. The walls are pretty thin. We could hear our neighbors pretty good. It’s right on the ocean. Near a lot of things. Walking distance to a lot. This particular unit didn’t match the outside. It was beautiful.
Hit & miss - depends on which unit you reserve!
We’ve stayed at The Tides for over 30 years, Stayed in many different rooms. Each room is privately owned so the decor and renovations are unique to each suite. Some are beautifully appointed and kept up well. But on our recent stay (July 2022) we stayed in a “cottage” across from the pool. #124. DON’T STAY THERE. Although it was charming enough (and who can argue with staying at the quiet end of the prom in Seaside!), the room is in desperate need of some TLC. Some examples: the fridge, whose temperature could not be adjusted, was so warm, our milk curdled. The beds are dreadful (squeaky and very “hammocky”. The patio door screen does not close. The vertical blinds by the patio door were difficult to slide and several panels fell off. The shower looks very grungy. If you can find an upgraded unit to rent, go for it! I love The Tides, but #124 this year was extremely disappointing.
Room was clean and adequately supplied with amenities and kitchen items. Great location away from the action but still a 15 min. walk into center of town. Pool was even heated, mid-April! Picnic table in center courtyard with BBQs available was a nice touch. CONS: Bedding was horrible! Flimsy and cheap top cover--not even sure it qualified as a quilt. No real blankets in the unit. One cheap pillow on each bed with sheets that seemed old and lacked any crisp freshly washed feeling. Sliding door needed servicing and was hard to push open. Bedrooms had pocket doors and one was off the track or something making it difficult to use.
Beautiful location, great room
We stayed here for the amazing ocean view. Had some issues with heat not working in 1st room, but they moved us immediately and upgraded us to a corner room with a view in 2 directions. Beautiful room, comfy beds, amazing view. Great experience.
Our anniversary stay. Worst motel I have ever stayed in Room 144.
My husband and I went to celebrate 40 years of marriage which became a nightmare. This motel room is so neglected with no maintenance or upgrades done. The bed is very uncomfortable and the headbord hits the wall everytime you move. The water doesn't drain well. The paper towel holder is falling off the wall. The tables sizes they have in the room is worthless you can't play any games on them they are so small and the night stands hardly any room for things always stuff falling off. The bathroom has no fan and the tub has no non slip to put in the tub to prevent falling. I almost fell in the tub this morning so this place is hazardous. The baseboard heater in the bathroom is all rusted. The filters under the microwave fall down. The stove does not work well put one of the burners on high and couldn't even scramble our eggs so tried the back burner it was better somewhat and cooked our eggs. The towel they put in the kitchen doesn't even absorb water to wipe the dishes. The room was clean enough but the overall review is I will never stay there again. My advice find a different motel if you want a relaxing time. Grade F poor. You may have better luck with in another room just don't rent 144.
