The Tides Laguna Beach, Laguna Beach
Really didn't like our dark and loud room.
I made the reservation to this hotel based on good reviews moths in advance. After reading all of the reviews about how this hotel has some loud rooms and some rooms are dark with barely any windows, I immediately called and emailed the hotel the request for a room on the second floor and farthest from the highway. When we arrived we got the room on the first floor, the closest to freeway, under the stairs with small windows overlooking the wall and so dark that we had to use the electricity the whole day, and also very noisy. Hated it. We stayed for 5 nights. I asked about my request and was told they see it but nothing can be done. I asked for another room, and was told that on day 3 they can move us to another similar room that was not worth the hassle. So without further discussion we just tried to enjoy our stay inspite of this hotel accommodations because the hotel location is really nice. But I will never stay in this hotel again and will not recommend it to anybody. I saw that they do have nicer rooms on the second floor but I don't know who gets those. I guess requesting it months in advance is not enough.

Loved the "Bungalow" feeling of the Tides! Location was excellent.

not charming room in a charming location
The tides has a great location. The fireplace in the evening was lovely. Our room was not so great. I've stayed here before and know that some of the rooms are quite charming, but this was definitely not one of them. May be punishment for using I couldn't get the floor lamp to turn on so I tried to call the front desk. The phone was dead. Had to go down to the office. She was very nice and came up to the room. She couldn't get it on either, but did replace it. Nothing was done about the phone. The curtains in the bathroom literally looked like a cat had shredded them. And the bathroom itself would have been a minimalist's dream. Absolutely no counter space - anywhere in the whole room, except the night stands. The toilet also had issues in the morning that I fixed myself since I couldn't call them and didn't want to get dressed that early. It had rained during the night and my 82 year old mother slipped on the stairs as we were checking out to leave. She was bleeding excessively and I asked for the key back to clean her up. Instead they sent us into a room the maid was cleaning and gave us rags (not towels) and ice. The maid was in the bathroom so we couldn't even use it. By the way I took her to urgent care where she received 5 stitches in her head. I would have thought they would have been a little more concerned about someone slipping and falling on their property and suffering a head wound.

Cute but not our style
We knew Laguna Beach has more beachy motel-like than hotel-like accommodations but this is right off the highway, it was loud during the day and evening. The room was decent, clean and bright; the price was great for Laguna, and we appreciated the earplugs, but it's never a good sign when they're taped to your "enjoy your stay" card. It was rainy the whole time we were there, and though there was a Keurig in the room, there were no pods - lots of half and half, but no pods at all. If we were to go back, we'd likely not stay here for a romantic trip.
