Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

Spent most of the time at the beach, recommend getting a rental car because cab fares add up, would like to see more eating establishments at the Marina, also lacking a nice gift shop. Would recommend this facility to anyone.

My husband and I went on a dolphin sighting cruise and it was a wonderful experience. There are a few around the Myrtle Beach area and you definately should take one if you get the chance.

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!

The good, the bad and the really bad

The hotel was beautiful and very comfortable. However the cash to get a taxi in order to leave the hotel was extremely costly. We had to leave the hotel for any entertainment, costong anywhere from $25.00 on way to 31.00 on way that was a bit much. The Hotel food was not very good. We were looking for South Carolina culture buy got some Miama BeACH WANT TO BEs.

Amazing

I have traveled quite a bit and it is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. The only caveat was the resort fee that I was not aware of. Not that it was outrageous, I was just unaware of it.

Perfection!!!

Booked a suprise getaway for my boyfriend and I, he was very impressed even though he is very hard to please....the people were very friendly, got a room upgrade for free and the view...fabulous!!! (Definately get a room on a higher floor) the cozy fireplace was a plus on those chilly nights. So what are you waiting for...book it already :)

You should rent a car because the hotel is secluded from the main strip and cabs are rather expensive...
