We enjoyed our two nights stay at The Tides. It is a very clean marina and the staff are all so helpful and kind. We will be back!

Had another great stay at Tides Inn Marina! Andrew (working the dock) was awesome. He greeted us upon arrival and helped tie up. He was also great helping our kids with the water toys. We enjoyed dinner at the newly reopened restaurant upstairs. Will be back very soon. Dave H

Tides Inn continues to make improvements to their facility. Can't wait to see it when lots of the work is complete. The beach is a lovely place to sit and have a beverage; the staff (especially at the marina and pool) is wonderful, the new "boardwalk" is and will be a perfect addition, the bikes make for perfect rides around town and the food was excellent this time! Of course, Salt and Meadow is crazy overpriced, but the Tides is upscale. Still miss the Lodge side of the resort that we used to go to years ago!

Nice place for families and kids but not as great for sailors. Heads/showers quite basic considering how much the dockage costs and no hot water in shower. Glad we came mid week when it was hardly full. Good at Salt and Meadow was delicious.

Tides a very special place ... partly like returning to the easy times of the 1950's ... and much to do and even more to just "be". Marina is comfortable, well managed and worthy a few days or a week Tides is simply a wonderful place to spend a few days or a week. Great staff and food and a beautiful part of the lower Chesapeake ...

We stay here every Fall and Spring as we cruise North or Southbound. This is such a tranquil location worth the trip off the Chesapeake. Beautiful marina and Tidewater resort. Courteous and helpful staff. Pet friendly. The Chesapeake restaurant has wonderful food and great service.

One of the very best of the Chesapeake bay.

by Mark L. - Verified user on Aug 12, 2023
Easily one of the very best marinas we’ve ever stayed in. Top notch in every respect. Cleanliness, helpfulness, the pool, the restaurants … all just superb. A bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Have stayed there 3 times and will definitely be back again!

Peace and tranquility. Good docks and staff. Incredible setting. The Inn is nice but needs routine maintenance, cleaning and landscape keeping. Great food in the restaurant.

by Kurt - Verified user on Jul 22, 2023
Great destination for relaxation! Excellent job by Mike and the dock crew. Mike made sure our spa and dinner reservations were in order and his dock crew was always there to assist us with any needs we had.

Tides Inn Marina is a special stopover for us each year. The Dockmaster and staff are super efficient and will attempt to meet your dockage needs and dates for reservations. They are always there to assist with lines, getting your vessel secured and meeting your electrical hookup needs. They are big on customer service. If you are tired of boat meals, they have two dinning establishments, one upscale with inside or terrace dining and one poolside for casual meals. On the other hand, a short walk to the town of Irvington will bring you to the Local coffee shop for breakfast or lunch and restaurants that open later in the evening. Other amenities include dockside heads with showers, pool, free pump out service, water and fuel pumps are available. Also water toys are available for your use. Yes, it is a well known hotel/marina resort and on the pricy side when compared to the average marina but for a 2-3 night stay, it is a well deserved treat for you and your crew. We highly recommend the Tides.

Excellent marina and great staff

by Dick H. - Verified user on Oct 27, 2022
Excellent marina and resort. Docks are first class. Plenary of water to get in and out of marina. The marine director, Stormy was outstanding. Very attentive to all of our needs. Lots of amenities at the resort. We will be back next year. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Helpful dock staff and excellent dinner. Great place to visit.

by Christopher L. - Verified user on Aug 28, 2022
Excellent as always. However, dock hand would not respond to many attempts to hail them on ch. 16 and 9. Finally reached them by cell phone. Dock hand explained that he had forgotten to take his radio with him (!).

Five stars are just not enough! Absolutely amazing Marina and property. The service at the dock was exceptional, dock hands were friendly and helpful! Docks are in great condition, bathhouse, pool and laundry were very clean! Resort amenities were beyond amazing. If you have time make it a stop on your trip for a night or a weekend you will NOT be disappointed!
