  • We had a beautiful wedding ceremony on the beach in front of the Tides! The hotel staff was very helpful and professional in planning and executing the ceremony. Everything was perfect! Thank you :)

  • Tides was the perfect place for us to hold our beach wedding. It's basically an everything-included plan; Tides can provide the ceremony set-up, all catering including the cake (the food is great!), tables and chairs, etc. We had the ceremony on the sand and the cocktail hour and reception in an event space inside. Over the course of the planning year, Caitlin at Tides was absolutely delightful to work with; we ended up renting another space for the bridal party to get ready and the process was super smooth. The Tides hotel itself has a gorgeous renovated lobby/restaurant/outdoor bar, and the rooms have been redone, but you can tell the building itself is older and worn by saltwater, so the vibe is definitely casual beach, but everyone was happy.

  • We worked with Candice for arranging our Rehearsal dinner at the Shipwatch room over looking the pier. She was very accommodating to all of our needs as well as the rest of the staff. The food was wonderful and everyone really enjoyed it.

  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Tides and my husband and I stayed there on our wedding night. Everything was picture perfect. Candice was amazing to work with and I truly could not have asked for better. We did a lot of corresponding through email because I was planning all of this from another state. We live in Georgia and chose to get married in South Carolina. The price listed on my review included the ceremony (which would have included an officiant, but my dad was performing ours for us) and the reception which we chose to have before the ceremony since the ceremony was at 7:30pm and everyone at the Tides was totally fine with that! Since we booked both with the Tides, they included the room for the night (which my bridesmaids and I were able to use to get ready beforehand) and a bottle of champagne at no extra cost! Seriously, if you're in the area, book them!! Heck, book them if you're not.. I did!!

  • Rachel has been a great help through this whole process, she's very busy and doesn't answer her phone very often (most likely because she is out and about doing work around the hotel) but she is quick to reply to emails! The main reason I loved this place is because 1. They were very friendly and welcoming 2. I got a break down spread sheet of every thing I would be spending 3. Everything is included in the package, this is very convient! Can't wait for the wedding in March!

  • I am so happy I decided to have my wedding at the Tides. All the guest loved staying there leading up to the wedding. The food was excellent at the reception and the staff was so amazing and helpful. Our wedding was beautiful and the Tides did not disappoint.

  • We worked with Blair Stegall with The Tides to plan our wedding ceremony and reception. Everything was absolutely perfect. My husband and I booked The Tides as our venue and caterer about 14 months before our wedding and during all of those months Blair remained helpful and available whenever we had questions or concerns. We live about two hours away from Folly Beach and were able to do everything via e-mail and phone calls, although when I wanted to go have a face to face meeting with Blair she was readily available and always positive! I don't think our wedding would have turned out so perfect without her and the staff that worked so hard to set everything up and break everything down after, and take care of all of us for the duration and for our entire five day stay at the hotel. From the bartenders to the the staff helping with the food preparations, everyone was so friendly, down to earth, professional and happy. It was a perfect day!! The cost to have our event at the Tides, on t... Read more

  • We had our Wedding Reception at the ballroom. Caitlin was amazing helping me with every detail I asked for. It was the best place for us because it was really close to our beach house where we had our ceremony.... Caution: Tides doesn't allow you to bring your own food service or cake service or bar service, but they gave us really good food, bar was ok, and the cake was better than expected... all this saved me a lot of time (coordinating more and more stuff) One more thing, we had to add dancing floor, parvillion area and some drapping (because there is way too many doors, and it needs more lightning).... My wedding was perfect, I loved every detail I planned... Tides was a great option overall...

  • For the amount of money spent here, the hotel was old and in disrepair. Our room was discounted to $299.00 per night plus $40 in taxes per night (because we had our wedding there) and during the whole stay, our toilet didn't flush. I felt there should been a bigger discount given or something comped.

  • We recently had our wedding at Tides Folly Beach and had an, overall, amazing experience. On our wedding day, there was a slight lack of communication and I was not told until the morning of that there was another wedding going on at the same time, which would result in me having to go through the back kitchen (dragging my dress through water on the ground) to get to my reception; however, the staff was amazing and even helped me hold my dress up so it wouldn’t get damaged and guided me to where I needed to be. The food was great—so good in fact, that nobody wanted to eat our wedding cake because they were so full after their four courses. During the reception, the only bathroom nearby backed up and started leaking sewage everywhere. The sewage leaked under the wall and onto the carpet in our reception room, but the staff was so apologetic, preparing a guest room for us to use as a bathroom, and even giving us a partial refund for the inconvenience. Our guests didn’t s... Read more

  • Our experience with Tides was mixed. In the time between signing our contract and our wedding, they changed our contact person without notifying us, leading to weeks of unanswered emails and calls. It finally came together in time for the wedding, though, and the event itself went great. The beach is gorgeous and adds so much to the atmosphere (and photos). We got married on the sand, then moved inside to a ballroom for our reception, where everything flowed smoothly. Our guests enjoyed the food and the scenery. There were a few minor snags: the groom's last name was misspelled on the menus, and the cake was served late, but overall it was the wedding we were hoping for and everyone had a good time. I'd recommend Tides as a wedding venue with the caveat to stay on top of the planning yourself (or hire a coordinator, which we didn't do).

  • Not recommended for events, especially weddings.Many mistakes on the hotel's part and great lack of communication along the way. Best part of the stay was our reception at Blu restaurant. I was a very calm bride, but the average bride would have created quite a scene at what we dealt with. First of all, the hotel completely failed to mention that the beach was undergoing a huge renourishment project. I was unaware until my photographer (a local vendor) called me the Tuesday before. It took multiple calls to actually get a response from anyone at the hotel about the affect of this construction on our stay. And forget about talking to the hotel manager, he isn't even located on the property. We were coming in from out of town. We booked in November and were married this weekend. Our event planner was out of town on the day of our event and didn't bother telling me until I asked to meet her upon our arrival to discuss the details of our ceremony. I had to ask for a new point of con... Read more
