Great during off season

Went during the off season. Right at the beach, with most of the rooms being with a view.

Fabulous weekend away!

I could not ask for a better stay! The service was great. Our oceanview room was very clean. The hotel is in walking distance to some good restaurants. The only draw back was a credit card scammer calling in the middle of the night claiming he was hotel management needing to update our reservation & credit card details. We addressed the issued with hotel security.

Questionable Housekeeping Service

Overall experience was wonderful; however, we did not get housekeeping service until 4pm Saturday afternoon. At that point, I was just out of the shower and not ready for housekeeping to come into the room. When I asked for clean towels, I was told that we could only have 3 towels, even though there were 4 of us in the room (me, my husband & our 2 teenage daughters). Otherwise, our stay was great. Loved the complimentary coffee.

Just Average

My husband and I spent our first year anniversary here. No thrills...We stayed in the older building and you could tell it still needed updating. We had a newly renovated kitchenette but that was about it. Beachfront was nice. The staff was courteous, but it was obvious we were in the wrong building because the staff kept telling us how much better the other building was. I used the lazy river and one of the pools not the gym. We did not get to use the mini golf promo that was advertised because it was only available from 4p-7p on Fri and Sat. We were booked from Sun-Wed...so why was that advertised? As the title says our stay was just average.

Good last minute option

We were looking for a last minute option to spend our vacations and Best Western Carolanian fit perfectly. Their rooms are comfortable enought and clean. They take good care of this place, even if Myrtle Beach hotels and restaurants are stuck on the 70s-80s...

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be ready to bring all your need to stay at the beach. Rental prices are too much for what they offer. Umbrellas, folding chairs, etc.

Myrtle vacation

Everything was exceptionally good except there were a few maintenance activities happening. Staff was available within short notice. But there was 1-2 maintenance issues every day of stay which was annoying. AC/Heater settings was not proper, either it went too cold or too hot...some issues with thermostat, I guess
