Made a last minute reservation there and price we paid was for a high quality room. When we arrived lobby was musty smelling and they had an air purifier running behind front desk with extension cords running along the floor. The room was no better, the couch was made of Cyril and squeaked when you sat on it, looked like...

Folly beach has one large hotel and it's the Tides. The hotel is clean, the staff are helpful, and the beach is beautiful! Every room has a balcony and the restaurant is very nice. A great launching pad for Charleston.

My family and I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Every staff member that we met was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the beach. The pool is heated. There is a Starbucks and a restaurant on the first floor. Plenty of other restaurants and bars within walking distance. We will definitely...

We picked Folly Beach at random and absolutely loved it and this Hotel. The hotel was bright and cheery and clean and right on the beach near the pier. Very laid back Key West like atmosphere. We would definitely go back.

The only reason I am not giving this hotel a 1 is because of the great customer service we experienced while we were there. We stayed at Tides in February for one night. They advertised that they are newly renovated. We did not experience that. There were small stains on the back of the toilet, the shower curtain was ripped,...

Fabulous and friendly staff, perfect location, not just dog friendly but dog welcoming - love the Tides!!! We felt so at home here - the staff is great, and fellow guests were friendly and laid back. Feels a little like a home away from home, can't wait for our return visits!!

This is our second year in a row coming down here in March from up north. The employee's are always very pleasant and are everywhere ready to assist you. The views are spectacular and all the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. This is just a special place to come and spend time, no matter how long you're able...

Returned again to Tides for some beachfront relaxation. Perfect location on the sand with heated pool and outdoor seating for food and drinks -- and firepits too. Very comfortable lobby when it got too cool in the night breeze. Music all the time, great staff (thanks Jay!) and pet friendly as well. We always have a good time in Folly...

This is a hotel and the only one on the beach in Folly. It is in the perfect location. When you come down the main road into Folly you literally run right into it straight ahead. It is located on the beach next to the fishing pier that is FREE to walk on anytime. The hotel is just a hotel,...
