spent a long weekend at the tides on a recent trip to charleston. we chose the tides because it was a pet-friendly hotel and it lived up to its billing! all rooms are oceanfront but we were a bit concerned to be on the 7th worry, there was virtually no wait for the elevators at any time during our stay. even though the hotel was full of dogs, it was quiet, clean, and spacious with no problems running into bottlenecks where dogs might be in close quarters. with a large patio and se...

I live in Charleston, but wanted to stay at Folly beach with a few friends for a quick "staycation". It was the perfect place to enjoy the close restaurants and nightlife, and you could not beat the view! The room was clean and provided a nice atmosphere. They had renovations going on in the lobby, but it did not interfere at all, in fact it was nicely covered and it will be exciting to see the changes once they are done. All of the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Nice new rooms with modern decor. Easy beach access and to restaurants, shops, and bars. No free breakfast. Fitness room is ok. Outdoor pool is heated but not warm enough for me in February. No hot tub. Perfect location, perfect view, nice rooms. Amenities are lacking.

The hotel is getting a spruce up but you can see that it'll be beautiful when finished. From the entrance stairs to the rooms to the convention rooms. The service is very nice and friendly. Can't wait to come back!

This is the only full service hotel on the beach within the Charleston area. Can they do better? Sure. But they are trying their best while still providing the best price/performance in the area. The fact that Tides allows pets all over the hotel is a huge plus. Nominal fee for pet for week stay is a huge plus as well. Front desk staff is immensely helpful as well. Feel like family here. Tides is only a block from great restaurants, great music, great Irish Pub, etc... Rita's is directly a... Read more

We were looking for a hotel that wasn't terribly far from downtown Charleston, accepted dogs, and was on the beach, without breaking the bank ... If that's what you require, Tides Folly Beach is your place!!! The front desk staff was very helpful, both on the phone and in person. They even gave our pooch a treat upon arrival :) They asked our preference on floor level, we chose highest available and we were put on the 8th floor ... An awesome choice!! You wind up with a great view! The beds are ... Read more

Very nice hotel, right on the beach. All employees were very Kind and Friendly. Unfortunately it was a cold weekend, and we didn't get to enjoy the outdoors much, but it looks like they have a great pool and sitting area and outdoor bar area. Rooms were clean and comfy. All rooms balcony and ocean view, can't beat that.

The Tides is located right on the beach -we arrived at 3pm and were able to sit outside at the bar on the deck and have a few drinks, see the ocean & pier. some people were eating lunch which all looked good. our room was on the 5th floor the front desk employee told us that was a good floor to be on as the upper floors tend to be colder this time of year -- it is a pet friendly hotel so don`t be shocked when the elevator opens and out roll the dogs.the hotel, it`s is older but very well kept up...

I chose Tides because it had onsite restaurant and room service. I was travelling alone, and wanted this option in case I did not want to venture out at night. Upon arrival I was told the restaurant was closed. Also the coffee shop closed at 6 (not 9 as indicated in the information provided in the room). There was a soda machine on the floor, but it had trash and dishes piled around it, so I didn't even get close. The room itself was just ok. It needed some attention to detail for sure--th...

I really enjoyed staying here... everything about it met or exceeded my expectations! We had a wonderful room with a private balcony that overlooked the beach. The room was great, clean and comfortable. The restaurant served one of the best meals I have had in a long time and we really enjoyed the southern hospitality of the staff. I have visited Charleston many times and this is the first time I had stayed in Folly Beach and really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend Tides to anybody l... Read more
