nice and quiet

The section of beach was less crowded due to the fact there was a resedential section between the Grand Shores and the next resort to the North. The resort is away from all the downtown activites but for us that is a good thing. The room and facilites were clean but they did show wear.

Good place for the price

Decent hotel for a decent price. Pool was nice as was the location right on the beach. Hotel is older and shows it's age a bit. Fitness room was adequately equipped - used it several times during the visit. Friendly staff. Had to drive to most restaurants. Was looking for a nice trip for my daughter's 21st birthday yet at an affordable price. This fit the bill though we did have to drive to most of what we did in Myrtle Beach. Was out of the noise of the downtown area. Pretty quiet even though we accidentally took our trip during the annual Harley Week.

stay at Myrtle Beach

The staff was friendly at the hotel but it was not what I expected coming from the web site advertising. When asked about the stay though the staff was very nice and apologetic.

Not the best, but it was clean

The customer service was great. The hotel was old and the rooms were small. The bed was sunken in also. We shopped and went out to eat. Overall we had a good time.

Had a wonderful stay

I was very happy with our hotel we were right on the ocean as promised. When we went to check in our room was not ready and after waiting several minutes we were instantly upgraded to a 1 bedroom condiminium. I would strongly recommend this type of room for any family traveling as it is more spacious and economical with the kitchen.
