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. 

Highlights

                                                                                   

  • Perfect sunrises and panoramic ocean views from Crown Reef guest rooms, all facing the Atlantic
  • Countless on-site pools, including a 575-foot-long "lazy river"
  • Several on-site dining and cocktail destinations, or rooms with kitchen facilities for home cooking

Features

My Opinion

My experience was very good, although I was expecting a little nicer room then what it was. The room was very out dated and was not worth the price that we paid.

Crown Reef Hotel

The room looked as if it were a hundred years old. Nothing in the entire hotel seamed to work at all. The beds were made of stone and very very uncomfortable. The whole hotel was falling apart , it needs to be renovated. The pools were really dirty and the hot tub did not work.

Last minute trip

The experience was great. The rooms were clean. The only thing is that you have to go across the street from the resort to check in. Overall, it was a good trip and would stay there again.

Good Times

Went on a short weekend trip with some friends in February. Was very happy with the location, and Hot Tubs. Room could have been a little cleaner, but for the price I thought it was a great value.

Horrible, Nasty & Disgusting

Looks are deceiving! Do not be fooled by the beautiful exterior of this resort & the pics of their rooms you view online. The room has paper thin walls, the furnishings appear to be original from the inception of the hotel & never updated. I can't begin to describe the smell as I have no words to adequately detail the stinch. The overall resort is dirty and not well kept. This stay was in January during off season which should have provided ample time for housekeeping to keep hallways, elevator's etc clean. Leaving after the first night, can't stand the thought of being in this room any longer.

perfect

We had a great time and the location was perfect. I wish that the glass elevator had worked outside our room. The room was spotless and the staff was very nice. We would probably stay here again and even bring the kids!
