Great Location ... Reasonable Price

We stayed in an efficiency on the first floor right next to the pool. This seemed to be an older, but remodeled part of the hotel. Staying on the first floor was nice because we did not have to deal with the stairs or elevators. The downside is that it is noisier because people are always walking past the room. The room was not spotless, but it wasn't dirty either. The hotel has no restaurant in the building, but Magnolia's is a decent place to eat and it is just across the street. The boardwalk area is about a 15 or 20 minute walk down the beach. We went to Broadway at the Beach to shop and eat a couple of times and it is a short drive away. You could probably walk there, but the parking is free so you may as well just drive.

Clean and Convenient

The hotel was older, but it was clean and well-kept, and the staff was friendly. The location was fantastic - right on the beach and close to many attractions. Many things were within walking or easy driving distance. The pool area was also older but clean and family-friendly with an indoor and outdoor pool and a lazy river. Overall, I would say that it's not super fancy, but definitely adequate for a relatively low-cost hotel right on the beach.

The Magnolia restaurant, a block from the hotel, was great for a quick dinner without having to get in the car.

Wonderful Experience!

We arrived around 3 pm Friday afternoon and we were looking out at the ocean from our ocean front room by 3:30. Wonderful staff, clean room, access to restaurants. Everything we needed was there. Couple of drawbacks, too far to walk to the center attractions (Ripley's, Gay Dolphin) and the staff couldn't provide any information about bus service so we had to drive and pay 6 bucks for parking. Overall, a great experience since I had not been to MB since 1971,(high school graduation).

Great location

I visited the hotel in the winter so I can't speak for the pools and what the hotel is like when there are tons of people staying there, but the weekend I went in December it was really nice. By far the thing that made me book here was the price and the location of the hotel. It was so close to the places we wanted to go. Especially Broadway at the Beach.

nice time

Parking was by valet. that Cost 8 a day plus a tip each time. So that was money we didn't expect, but the workers certainly apprecated it and desoerved it.

It's all good

We went in January, so the weather was the worst thing about our trip and it was a whole lot better than what we left behind! Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Excellent staff! Plan on making this a regular winter getaway.

If you want to go for the family-type activities, wait until spring. Everything is closed down for the winter. Great food at Sticky Fingers and Benjamin's Seafood Buffet on the south side of Myrtle Beach.

great location and price too!

It was a anniversary getaway for me and the fiance. A getaway it most certainly was :) Staff was very friendly and readily available. Even got to check-in well before expected. Room was very clean and upkept. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful. We were in a oceanfront room. The best part was when the sun rose in the morning. The price couldn't be beat for what we got. Will surely book again. :D
