Happy Holiday from who knows where?

First minute I was there we where walking up to our rooms and there was a man next door smoking ????,that was my first sign.Then we asked for a ice bucket or ice machine we had to pay 2.25 a bag.Then the room we asked for non smoking and I think we got the room where everyone smoked.We had to go across parking lot to get clean towels and toliet paper if we needed it.I would never want anyone to ever have to stay like this again.I dont think 124.14 aday was very cheap I have spent alot more but not for this very nasty,outdated,smelly ect.ect room I feel everyone needs to know about this before they make the same mistake I did.

Poor overall service

First off it was very hot, humid and stuffy in the main office. The air condition was off. There was no maid service in the four days and three nights we stayed. We had to get our own towels from the front office. The bathroom door would not shut and there was no ice maker at this lodging. The trash can was never emptied during our stay and was full by the time we left. There was no bag inside the trash container. This was a tall 30 gallon container. No shampoo was provider either. Toilet appear not to be properly sealed and had a smell to it. This was equivalent to or worst than staying in a tent or campsite.

Aside from the local beach shop there was a few shopping malls and centers that had unique shops as well as eateries in addition to the entertainmen activities within a few miles from the beach area.

Horrible Hotel...

[...] I took my family there and when we arrived to the Hotel it was terrible. The room was dirty, dirty sheets, dirty microwave, dirty carpet, i can't describe this place. I had an early check out. I didn't even spend one night there. I should get my money back. [...]

Roach Motel

There was no maid service during the entire stay. We had to ask for clean towels every time we took a shower and then go to the laundry room to receive them. The trash was never emptied and we even had to ask for toilet paper twice then go to the front office to get it because they do not deliver anything to your room. Our shower ceiling was breaking apart because the shower head squirted water all over the place and pieces fell off of the ceiling every time we showered. There was mold everywhere in the bathroom and the fridge was nasty. There was a hole in the door that led to a joining room. The chain lock was missing on the door leading to the outside. This motel has a lot of potential but the maintenance was undone and they could use a house keeper. As far as location, it is in a great location if cleanliness isn't important to you. One positive comment is, the boy who ran the front desk was really nice.

Terrible experience

Everything went wrong from the time of check in to check out. It was very far from newly renovated, more of the roof caving in and the door in three pieces.Unprofessional staff,three wreckers very noisy towing cars, screaming peolpe, people beating on our door and trying to get in, the shower curtain had mold and urine stains, the bed was hard with springs digging into your side, pillows were hard, cable didn't work at all, and the toilet was coming out of the floor, needless to say, we had no sleep and ruined our day at Myrtle Beach.[...]

Ghetto Hotel

For starters the hotel IS NOT newly renovated. The ceiling in the bathroom was bowing down from water damage from the room above. The paint was chipping off the walls and the ceiling in the rest of the room. The toilet kept running we had to shut the door so we didn't have to hear it. The phone did not work to call the front desk. We didn't have any maids come clean the room until the last day we stayed. The fire alarm was going off and the maintenance guy took it out and never replaced it right away so we had a night with no alarm. We also got to watch the episode of cops right outside of our room. I felt like I was staying the the ghetto. I will never stay there again.
