Condo not a hotel

Lesson of this review? You get what you pay for!!! Cheaper rate so the money I saved can go to the repair bill on the vehicle. I did not realize that this was listed as a hotel room when, in fact, it was an unused vacation condo. After we picked up our key and made it to the "hotel" and pulled into the parking deck it became interesting. I was driving a full size pick up truck. Once you commit to the deck there is no way out but through to the exit on the second level. The downside to this is ramps to move you up to the next level are perfect for a Honda Fit or similar car but any other vehicle is in trouble. In the end because of the configuration I left black paint on the wall of the first ramp. As you come to the top the exit is immediately to your right. Needless to say I backed out of the exit gate due to the lack of maneuverability in the deck. I know you are thinking it may be my driving ability but as a seasoned law enforcement officer with over 12 years on the job I have never left paint of one of my vehicles anywhere other than this facility. When we returned from dinner I took my chances and parked on the street. Overall the room layout was OK but when it is presented as a hotel room then that is what I expected. The mattresses leave so much to be desired. It was like laying in a recliner with the amount of sag in the middle of the bed. We chose to spend our anniversary night sleeping each in a separate bed so that we would be able to walk the next day. The permanent resident who was on the floor above us must have been rearranging their life because all we could hear until 2AM was furniture being moved. At first we thought it to be thunder but it was not. Sigh. The young lady, Kelly, was very helpful and emailed her bosses on the situation. She CC me so I could be kept in the loop. I sent a pic of the damage to my truck. In response I received this email when I asked for a refund to go towards my repairs. "I am so sorry that you had difficulties in the parking garage at Ocean Forest Plaza. Unfortunately we cannot refund any portion of your reservation due to this. I am going to give you Jerry’s number at Ocean Forest Plaza, he is with the on-site maintenance there at Ocean Forest. His number is 843-497-7228. I am not sure if he will be able to help you with anything or not but he would be able to tell you if the property can or would be willing to help you with the scrape on your car. Since we are not associated with the on site management there I cannot dictate to them what signage should or should not be placed within the garage. Melanie Selmon Accounting Manager Palmetto Vacation Rentals, LLC 4101 Mayfair St. Myrtle Beach, SC 29577 Tel-843-839-2737" Find another place. A real hotel.

quiet, relaxing

I did not read my fine print about the cleaning fee!! but we stayed in a really nice room on the 19th floor. I would stay there again. We went right after bike week and it was really nice and quiet, if that is what you are looking for. Parking garage is really tight for a truck but they do have parking for oversized vehicles on the outside of garage.

No one any where

I checked in on the 6/28/13 and was leaving the 29. The check in went fine but when I got to the room it was very outdated. The toilet had very bad stains. The one good thing was the view from the balcony was beautiful. The parking garage was a nightmare. We had a SUV and the parking garage was so narrow we almost hit the wall several times comming and out. I got a call early in the morning about a dying uncle so we got up to leave early in the morning. We tried to checkout by 6am because we had a 12 hour drive back to Pittsburgh. We went to checkout no one was at the front desk. A sign said to ring buzzer if no one was there . I did while my husband called security to see if they might know where to return the keys no one answered there either after 10 mins of finding no one we wrote a note saying that we would never stay there again and slid it and the keys under the window and left.

Terrible!!!!

Parking garage is absolutely dangerous. The room had a terrible odor. Cigarette smoke among other things. Old, dirty furniture. Checked out one hour after checking in. Would not stay there!

DO NOT STAY HERE

I just checked in and I already want to check out. The office listed here has moved so we ended up at the wrong place after hours of driving. The check in is 10 minutes from the actual hotel. So, we are put on the 17th floor of the building. Elevators are in some levels of the parking garage. The ramps to navigate through the parking garage are NARROW, dangerously NARROW! The walls are full of vehicle scrapes. It was a horrible experience. The parking spaces are deplorable. Once we got to the room, it was more of a let down. It is old and run down. Reeks of cigarette smoke. The furniture smells like body odor and the room itself smells like body odor. This is the worst place I have ever stayed in and we have been coming here for 40 years. Take your business elsewhere.

My review of Ocean Forest Plaza

Ocean Forest Plaza was very comfortable. Checking in was very easy and the staff was friendly. Our suite was clean and well stocked. The sofa and chair were not very comfortable, but we spent little time in the living area. The parking garage is not easy to manuever in a larger car. However, outside parking is available for some vehicles. The location is very good, and the beach is easily accessible. Many good restaurants are nearby.
