The location is perfect. You park your car and don't have to move again until check out. They have an on premise restaurant, a coffee shop and outdoor bar. The hotel is next door to the folly beach pier which also has a restaurant and bar. They rent beach chairs and umbrellas plus jet ski. The hotel is very nicely...

My bride and I spent two sun-filled days at Folly Beach in April. The Tides is a fairly nice beach-side hotel. The rooms are reasonably clean, and every room has a great view of the ocean. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The gentleman who checked us out on Sunday morning was especially nice. On one hand the Hotel location...

As far as location goes, this is the best spot in Folly Beach. Located right next to the pier and at the end of the strip of restaurants and shops. The lobby and facilities (pool, restaurant, bar, etc) were tastefully decorated. The gym is a bit small but enough for a decent workout. Customer service was quick, efficient, and friendly....

I guess we were expecting more from a hotel stay on the beach and paying more than $300 per night. Room was a little out dated but there is not much of an option if you stay in Folly Beach. Will I come back...maybe

The hotel rooms are a little underwhelming but the views are great, the service is great and the town is absolutely fantastic. Easy to get around by foot. Great restaurants. Fun atmosphere throughout the whole area!!

Every afternoon that I came back to the room I pulled the covers back and there was at least one bug crawling in between the sheets. My reservation was for 4 nights, I only stayed 2 because of this. The location is beautiful. The staff was as friendly and personable as could be. I'm not a complainer and do not...

What a view! Great location, right on the beach. Outdoor pool overlooks the beach, and the hotel has easy beach access. Our daughter loved the pool! Loved that the hotel had an outdoor bar near the pool and a cafe with several Starbucks drinks! Staff was helpful and friendly. Folly Beach is a cute beach town, but not cheesy like...

So, this is it for being on the beach. Beach out front and pier to the side. Also had a nice pool. No breakfast served, but the coffee house downstairs had good coffee and a muffin to split. The restaurant was open, but we never want too much for breakfast. Lots of shells on the beach. Very busy at times...

Tides Folly Beach is a good beach hotel. It's not fantastic, but it is definitely above average. (I actually would rate it 3.5 stars.) For starters, I think the pictures on the hotel's website definitely embellish the actual quality of the place. That said, this is a really good beach hotel. The layout is efficient with every room having an...

From the friendly guy at the front desk, to the comfortable room with a stunning view, to the best location on Folly Beach, you can't beat the Tides! Folly Beach is a quirky, special place. From the Tides, you have easy access to all of it.
