    Tdes Inn offered tennis, pickle ball, 3-par golf, biking, kayaking, stand-up paddle boards, bocce court, croquet, sailing, pool, and rental of duffy boats--all enjoyed by my group of grandparents, kids, and grandkids. Very scenic area. Rooms were small but nice and food was OK but not exceptional. Staff all very helpful and pleasant.

    I love how this place is tucked away, on the water, with great food and pretty rooms. They’ve done a lot to improve the property over the past few years, which their price increases definitely reflect. However, one would expect certain things not to be overlooked in all this. There was an awful smell at the pool all weekend, something that they were trying to fix. The rooms (and I’ve stayed in several) in the main portion of the building tend to smell a bit musty, like a basement, even after the renovation. The restrooms at the pool are pretty bad. Both latches in the ladies restroom are broken. Something they could pick up at a hardware store and have fixed in a hour. But most of the issues there seem like oversights. Overall it’s a great little spot to get away to though and we visit several times a year.

    A Wonderful Experience

    We had visited about 30 years ago, and while that trip was great, we had concerns about the future of The Tides Inn. Well, 30 years is a long time, which The Tides Inn used to their advantage. Everything is better: the rooms are wonderful, the food terrific, and the services are fabulous. I want to make particular note about the grounds. The garden staff has made any stroll around the property a beautiful experience. There are tall or "prairie" gardens (I think that's what you call them. It's a mixture of grasses and flowers that sway in the breeze) which are beautifully kept. There are old and stately specimen trees, many of which have chairs or benches underneath to enjoy the bay breezes and the shade on a warm day. Make sure you take the 1 hour cruise around the area. Irvington is located on a branch of the Chesapeake and there are many inlets (they call them creeks, but they are much bigger and deeper than that). The area has an interesting history and the Tides Inn plays a big part in that. The services and food may seem a little overpriced, but when I was presented with the final total, it seemed to me to be a bargain. This place is a great place to de-tox after the pandemic. And say hello to Earl, who helped us with the bags and held the door and welcomed us, just like he did 30 years ago. He and the entire staff were so helpful and friendly that we plan to return more quickly than we did last time.

    Meh

    I had called in advance of my arrival to ask for early check in. My request was not only ignored, but I was rudely reminded when I arrived that they could not guarantee before 4PM. Which is what prompted my call in the first place. Not only was the housekeeping staff not sent to my room early until prompting by one of the hotel staff, but I then didn't even get in until AFTER 4. Which means no effort was ever planned or made to try and accommodate my earlier request. The service staff was very nice, but 2 of the check in staff were rude. 2 were not. The rooms were nice and the setting beautiful, but the food was not as good as in previous years. Very ordinary and not up to the prices being charged at all.

    We had a 2-night stay between Christmas and New Year's and it was understandably quiet. But it is a lovely setting with an excellent friendly staff. The Covid pandemic has hit them hard but they are doing a good job of providing a safe stay and they keep smiling.
