Very happy with the Marina Inn

The hotel had a very good location. The service was very good and the pool was very nice. The staff was very friendly and they have a shuttle service that takes you to the beach, which is only a mile away. The only con is that the restaurant in the hotel is pricey and there is no breakfast included.

beautiful and serene getaway

we had a really nice time at the marina inn. we stayed in a baltic suite/studio on the 8th floor overlooking the marina and the pool. it was really beautiful and the room looked exactly like the picture on the website. it was quiet and in a way it was better than staying at a hotel on the beach where it would be vey noisy. the linens were so pretty i want to redo my bedroom in the style of the hotel room. there was a microwave and small fridge in the room as well as cabinets with dishes and cutlery. the only con to the room was that there was no space to put our clothes. we could have used a set of drawers to store our stuff but there was none. the pool was relaxing and really nice as well except that on one of the days they were doing some sort of renovation and there was annoying drilling sounds. also there is a restaurant by the pool but they had no ice coffee/ latte drinks that new yorkers love. although the hotel is not on the beach, getting there was completely hassle free. there is a shuttle that comes every five minutes to take you there and bring you back so you are not sitting around waiting. i would most definitely stay here again and bring my kids along as well. we had a really nice time in this upscale hotel. request a room on high floor because it may be more noisy if you are on a lower floor.

Hotel is beautiful. Bedrooms were average. Staff is friendly and helpful. I did not eat at hotel restaurant, it is overpriced. Location is in a quiet section and CVS pharmacy and supermarket is directly across the street. Hotel is 15 minutes drive from many local attractions. Beach is close by and very clean. I would definitely stay hear again!

Go eat at Bar-B-Que House in N. Myrtle Beach. Food is reasonable and delicious. Also buy souvenirs at shops on King Highway (they have $5.99 and less stores). Lowes supermarket is expensive. Shop at Buy Rite. Review coupon books and use coupons.

Great service, not totally a 5 star

I didnt realize that this hotel was intercoastal and not on the actual beach. The room was spacious, and the bathroom was nice, however the TV channels were limited to channels that didn't make for interesting watching. The pool was extremely small for the amount of people who were at the location. The guest service desk person who attended us was either put out or just not a friendly person. We asked for a trash can to dispose our trash and she gave us a digusted look and when she said that she would take it from us, she made such a nasty face. The cleaning staff, was not sweeping our rooms, nor cleaning the stove or wiping down the counters. The location is ideal if you have a car if not you wont be able to walk to stores. The pool staff was extremely friendly and eficient. We probably will not stay there again just because it is not located by the beach. That was one of the biggest disappointments.

Great hotel! It is located on the Intercoastal waterway, so, not directly at the beach. However: The shuttle will take you to the well-maintained beach with lifeguard, chairs, umbrellas and restaurant area. It is beautiful. The best were the staff: [...] had unfortunately not booked enough rooms for us, but the manager took great care of us despite the fact that it was not his mistake. Pool is relatively small in comparison to the hotel-size, but sufficient. Golf is great (I was told), rooms are clean and beautiful.

Great Stay!!!!

What an awesome stay we had. Our 13yr old son had his own space and we had our own. The hotel was beautiful and maintained perfectly. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful;everyone. Valet service and turn-down service, great location on Coastal Waterway, shuttle to their beach location 2 blocks away, with full services at the beach. Midway between all local attractions. Great time

Really a lovely hotel

We were staying there on business because it was close to (in fact part of the same community)as our host's home. The location was perfect as someone could pick us up for work every morning and deliver us back at night. The rooms are beautiful, robes, lovely bathroom etc. The hotel restaurant was excellent, room service was excellent. There is a Roth's Chris Steakhouse next door on the hotel property. It is on the intercoastal quiet and peaceful. The people were lovely and overall service just great. for example the night we were to meet colleauges at the steakhouse (100 yards from the hotel) there was such a horrendous storm that we couldn't just walk over...one of the valet boys got a hotel van and drove us door to door!Ian Jon McLean [@]

Can't wait to return!

This was a great vacation. Hubby & I went to Myrtle Beach to celebrate our 30th wedding anniv. We couldn't have picked a better location than the Marina Grand Dunnes Inn! The service was exceptional. The accomodations were superior. Our room was tastefully decorated. Ray(bellhop)was the hit of our stay. Very friendly and helpful. Loved the location. We will return!
