one night stay

if you are staying one night this will do. The room needs to be remodled (updated). The room has all old appliances (the refrigerator was loud, some of the utensils were rusty), furniture and tv. If you want to stay more than one night this is not your place. LOOKS GOOD ON THE OUTSIDE BUT THE ROOM WITH ONE KING BED WAS OUT OF DATE.

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.

Fine for a quick trip

We received a good deal on this room when we decided to take a weekend trip at the last minute. The rooms were dated but clean, and we did not have any issues with customer service. Would stay again for a short trip where we were not in the room at lot, for a long vacation we would probably stay somewhere that was more updated and had more amenities. Pools, etc. were clean and appeared to be well maintained.

Good girlfriends getaway!

Oceanfront view is the greatest. The staff was very helpful especially housekeeping. The beds were comfortable. The room and furniture were a bit worn and needed repair and painting. The bed linen was old and worn, from the mattress pad to the spread, in dire need of replacement. The scenery and outside amenities almost made up for everything else.

Crown Reef Resort - Myrtle Beach - March Break 2013

We have a Queen Efficiency. Two queen beds, full kitchen, full bathroom and a table with chairs. Ocean Front view with two plastic chairs. Room was extremely clean, so was kitchen and bathroom. Housekeeping came daily to clean the bathroom and make the beds. Always inquired if we needed anything else done. Kitchen has pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and the hotel provided dish cloths, wash up cloths and dish washing soap. All items provided were clean. Kitchen had a 4 burner stove, full fridge and oven, a microwave, coffee maker and a toaster. Only thing we needed was a kettle. Pools were all open, but it was a might cold to swim in the outdoors, so we used the indoor pool and hot tubs. They were clean and well maintained. The cabinets, fridge and stove were outdated and the fridge enamel on the outside was starting to peel off and get rusted. Other than that, everyone was very helpful and the convenience of having all these items available and an ocean view is great for a family as it does help keep the cost down.

Alone time together

This is a very good hotel and would stay there again. The only bad thing was that the housekeeping staff did not come around on Sunday to get the trash or to give new towels so we had to go find someone to get them from. It was really nice to be able to sleep with the door open and listen to the waves crash. Hope to get back there soon. Need to be able to use the hot tubs and pools after 10 cause alot of people don't get to unwind till after that.
