    View is great. Room was old.
    The rooms were very old. We stayed in the oceanfront rooms with the balconies. I feel I paid a lot of money and received a room that is in much need of an update. However, the view, the location and the nice staff were the best part of the trip. The hotel is located on the boardwalk.

    not Very handicap friendly!!
    I booked a handicap room, once we arrived told us they didn’t have one available and there was nothing they could do for us. So we stayed in a non handicap room with my handicap father in law. The room smelled like mildew, and the bathroom was literally falling apart. The sink was about to fall off the wall, the faucet fell off the shower a couple times. Was told we would be able to speak with management before we left about the room problems and still have yet to hear from anyone there. I stayed here a time before and it was great but after this experience we will never stay here again!

    Never Again
    This past weekend my husband, 2 teenage sons, and I stayed at Tidelands Caribbean Hotel. We chose this hotel because we’ve stayed there before (12 years ago) and loved the location, room layout, and condition. This trip was VERY different, while the location and layout haven’t changed (and are great), the room was disgustingly filthy and not in working order. Our sheets were dirty and clearly weren’t changed before we checked in, the duvet was dingy white and pilled and had no cover, there was dirt and debris all over the tile floor (turned our feet black), the baseboards were covered with dust, the tub had sand in it and the jets were black with mold. The bed was probably the most uncomfortable I’ve ever slept in and the pillows were horribly old and flat. The shower handle fell off when we turned the shower on and couldn’t control temperature. The tub and bathroom sink were both clogged with previous guests’ crud and there is no fan in the bathroom. There were even smears of what appeared to be blood on the tile floor and bathroom door. On top of the substandard room conditions, our room faced the pool where the blared loud music you could hear in the room with the doors and windows closed from 9am – after midnight. At least we were awake at 9 when the music started because we were awoken both mornings just before 6am when the dumpsters in the alley next to our room were emptied (about 20 min of very loud banging)
