Never again!! STAY AWAY!!!

I thought we were getting a good deal but like past reviews state you get what you pay for. I actually couldn't wait to get off of vacation because I hated this hotel so much. Everything from the walls the ceiling fan the refrigerator and the towels were dirty and stained. Thank god I brought extra towels they couldn't pay me to use their towels. The bed linens looked dirty as well and there was this horrible stench as soon as you step into the room and the chairs they had in the room were horribly stained as well. I don't think the room has been thouroughly cleaned in ages, at least that's how it looks. Like I said never again! I would rather pay an extra 10-20 bucks a night to avoid ever staying at a hotel like this that is run down. The owners/management should be ashamed of this place.

32nd Birthday Trip

Based on the price, pleasantly surprised how large the room was and excited it had a large kitchenette with a medium size refrigerator. I will definitely stay at the Oceanfront Viking Motel on future trips to Myrtle Beach!

It wasn't bad. Rooms are big enough, everything worked. Not a bad place if you're on a budget, want to be on the beach and aren't picky. It would've been nice to have an earlier check in time but there are plenty of places to kill some time.

Hidden charges

When I got to the hotel I was charged $28 more than what I had already paid and a $50 security deposit. When you sign the sheet for your security deposit it says you can get it back between 8-11am on the day of checkout.WRONG! I had to wait until 20 minutes after 10 for an "inspector" that never showed up and the girl at the counter wouldn't check the room herself. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The tv is spotty at best, there's no wifi, a side-view room actually means no view, and the bathroom and kitchen are very out-dated.

Ok for the price.

We just got back from a 4 night stay in the Viking Motel on July 23rd in Myrtle Beach, SC.The motel room was suprisingly clean with two queen size beds and a dining table for 3 people. The bed was comfortable with no signs of bed buds or other critters in the room. The room did not have a microwave oven, hairdryer or iron which are a few amenities I was used too. The oven was very slow in heating up food but overall the room was nice and the AC was cold as ice. The room service was ok as well. Now the outside of the motel was real the issue. It's right on the beach front which is nice but, parking is very limited and additional parking is across the street from the motel. The outside looks like a run down building and the pool is very small. I guess because of the cheap price it was so popular which attracted all kinds of people. The people in the Best Western Hotel right next door called the Viking Motel the Ghetto. I couldn't agree with them more due to the appearance. For the money the room was nice but for nicer hotel I will pay extra next time.

north carolina getaway

The hotel was very old. The stove was rusty and burners bent out of shape. Beds were old and bos springs had holes in material. Bathtub was cracked. The door looked like it had been broken into. Very bad place. I would never go there again!

"Stay Away"

This has to be the WORST Hotel that I have ever seen. The elevator didn't work, the room was FILTHY, even the walls were smeared with something that looked like feces. The floors were NASTY. I would definitely NOT recommend anyone to stay at this place EVER!

I was somewhat leary of the great price

we arrived late and Had requested easy access to the room as my husband is disabled. this hotel went way beyond all expections to make it easy for my husband to get to our room. rge room was all it was stated to be and more. the staff could not have been better to deal with and the room wax spotless clean. easy access to the beach, I know we will use this hotel again and again for our trips to myrtle beach. i highly suggest to anyone traveling to myrtle to stay at this hotel for a great beach visit. [...]thank you viking motel [...] for a wonderful weekend for our grandsons birthday trip, it was simply perfect.

Awesome location, Money's Worth Motel

Motel is in the perfect location, walked to the beach from our room, close to amusement park and restaurants. However, the manager of the Best Western Grand Stand next door was our first experience with people in South Carolina. We checked in with the not so friendly clerk at the Viking to face this guy. Apparently half ot the parking lot at the Viking belongs to the snooty Best Western Grand Stand. We had no where to park to unload our luggage, so we parked in one of the spaces marked for guest of the Best Western. The manager/owner whatever he was drives up in his Lexus SUV with his walkie talkie telling us we need to move, I explained we were only unloading our stuff and then we would move. He was very gruff, saying park parallel behind the cars over there. There was no one parked in any of his spaces, so I didn't see the big deal. It took us 5 minutes to put our things in our room and we were off to explore South Carolina. Our room was not fancy. Appliances are older, air conditioning was an air conditioner in the wall and there was black (i am asuming mold) in the white caulking around tub. We felt like the room was sufficient for what we needed. We were only in the room to shower and sleep, so it was a great price for what we got. It has to be hard to keep something clean that close to the beach.
