great family resort

Everything was as expected. Our room was on the 11th floor. I usually like to stay a little lower... See full review

Oceanfront in Myrtle Beach with more than 20 pools, tubs and fountains

Relax with a private balcony and views onto the Atlantic Ocean at Crown Reef Hotel in Myrtle Beach. Set on the sand, guests enjoy the ultimate oceanfront playground -- as well as the hotel itself, where more than 20 swimming pools, hot tubs and fountains dot the landscape. Meander down a 575-foot-long "lazy river," unwind with a cocktail at the Pool Bar and Grill, work out in the fitness center, experience dining at several restaurants and cafes on-site, or chill out in the video arcade.

Rooms always available!!!

I have stayed at the Crown Reef twice. Efficent, reasonable, with a good location. Lots of parking. It does lack a sauna. But it has quite a lot of hot tub-pools. Due to it's large size there is generally a room available - where as a smaller hotel/ motel would be full at Myrtle Beach

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL

We stayed there 7/12/12 - 7/15/12 - the hotel definitely needs to be updated. The rooms are average but the A/C worked great! The housekeeping is where they definitely need improvement. The coffee, sugar & creamer was not replenished....I had to track down a housekeeper and request it. Then, what really threw me was instead of making up the bed, all she had done was pulled up the sheet & comforter....this is how most children make beds. Though we went to the beach rather than the pools, they did look nice. We won't stay there again.

Room was very disappointing

This hotel's website made it look fantastic. I have to say the pool area I was very satisfied with along with the lazy river. The location of the hotel was also great. View from the balcony was fantastic. My main problem with this hotel was the room itself. I wouldn't mind paying $178 per night (which I did)if the room was updated and in good shape. The wallpaper was coming off the wall at the seams in places and the appliances had to be 25 years old as well as the carpet. Also for this price a complimentary breakfast should be included but is not. Will look for something better next time.

Good Experience

I enjoyed my stay at the Crown Reef. The room could have been a little cleaner, (there were stains on the walls) and the beds were not that comfortable but overall it was pleasant. The staff was great and so was the location.

Getaway from our nor'easter at home

We were warmly welcomed to this fantastically located, right on the water, hotel by a wonderful gentleman. On two mornings (early rising at 3:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.) we had no hot water. The rooms appeared to need a 'thorough' cleaning, the rooms were showing their age. The ammenities for the price were great. Lighting at the elevators in the wee hours was non-existant. We called at 4:00 a.m. to check out and there was no answer. Overall, we would return-it is a great location in a great city.

Nice ocean view

It was a place to sleep, we may have had a better time if the weather was warm and it wasn't so early in the season, but we found Myrtle Beach to be devoid of anything fun to do, the boardwalk was cool, but you get badgered by the time share salesmen by just going out for a walk. But I bet the extra $18 the resort charges you when you get there having already PAID for the room, that extra $18 wouldn't have made that much difference.

beach vacation review 2010

This was a nice place to stay and was clean would have preferred something closer to the heart of town without having to pay to park to do everything. Also the bathroom was rather small for a resort and blowdryer was terrible. However after 2 days we called and they were quick to install one that worked better. Was not able to enjoy last night due to the package and the early flight out. Also we were quoted a package and did not realize we would be charged an additional resort fee on check in. With all that being said it was a clean place and fairly quiet with a good view of the ocean.

Enjoyed dining at the Seacaptain's House on the ocean, it was fabulous very good seafood and a spectacular view of the ocean. They also had a parking lot for the customers. One of the few places right in Myrtle beach where we did not have to pay to park.

Beautiful view! Terribly uncomfortable bed! :(

The staff was freindly and helpful. The view was gorgeous but the room had a moldy smell and was a bit "dated". The bed was terribly uncomfortable. :(
