About Tides Folly Beach Hotel, Folly Beach

Beach hotel with pool and dining, 9 miles from Charleston

Peaceful beachfront zone

Tides Folly Beach Hotel puts you on a quiet stretch of beachfront, a 40-minute drive from Charleston International Airport. Culture-filled downtown Charleston, ranked a Top 10 U.S. travel destination by Condé Nast Traveler, is a 20-minute drive.

Water tours and history

There’s plenty to do on the ocean - the hotel can arrange stand-up paddle board and kayak tours or chartered fishing expeditions. History buffs can drive 30 miles to Patriots Point and explore WWII aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, or boat to Fort Sumter, a Civil War site.

Drinks by the water

Guests enjoy relaxing at the beach and waterfront pool, where lunch and cocktails are served, and dining on local seafood over ocean views at BLU. The hotel offers nice perks like free parking, and the fitness center is open 24 hours.

Ocean view in all rooms

Comfy guestrooms include balconies or patios with Atlantic Ocean views, along with flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges to store cold drinks. You can enjoy free WiFi and granite bathroom countertops, and if you book a first-floor guestroom, you’ll have direct access to beach and pool.

Great stay! Nice renovation! Definitely book again

Tides Folly Beach Hotel, Folly Beach
For heaven's sake fix the doors; they are hard to open and slam shut if you let them go. A bottle of water would be nice. It is such a small thing but us older folks have to take our meds first thing in the morning and the younger folks prbably need to rehydrate after a night on the town🙃

Location is everything.
What does this hotel have going for it? Location, location, location. The beach views and the proximity to restaurants are fantastic. But the rooms themselves are 2 star at best. We had to change rooms after the first one we were put in had dried urine on the toilet seat. In our next room, we discovered the lack of noise control when we were treated to the sounds of our neighbor’s nocturnal fun. I will say that the staff is very friendly and the beds are pretty comfortable, but know that you’re paying for convenience and views and not much else.

Excellent value at this price point
First of all, the staff are universally excellent. No room for improvement. This is a nice hotel, once a holiday inn and now not. The restaurant is good, generally US hotel restaurants are not and the price was exactly consistent with the area. All in all, an excellent value at this price point.

My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights. Loved listening to the sounds of the ocean during the night with the balcony door open. We visited Charleston historic area drive was about 20 minutes.
