Clean room, poor water pressure, scratchy towels. Whens the last time the exterior was painted?(old photos)and landscape? Good housekeeping doesn't end at the doorway, it starts at the curb.

I wouldn't let my dog stay here!!!!!!!!

Would not recommend Wed, Apr 22, 2009
The hint was the sign behind the desk that said no refunds. The elevator ride to the 5th floor was like skydiving. We took it once then walked the steps. The room was awful it had sticky carpeting, and was smelly and dingy. I will sleep in my car the next time. We kept the door open to help with the smell. I tried not to touch anything. I had to tell my children that we would be out of the room as soon as the sun came up. What a night.

Don't Stay Here!

Would not recommend Tue, Mar 17, 2009
To begin with, I guess you get what you pay for. I was very displeased with The Viking. When I first arrived, I learned that I had to be pay a $20 fee for my room keys which is completely rediculous. I've never had to pay a fee for room keys at any other hotel that I've stayed with. The room key fee was later replaced with a $50 fee because my younger brother was travelling with me. He's 19 and I'm 25...apparently I'm not adult enough to watch my brother. But, to be fair, they gave me the deposit back when we checked out. After all that, we had to do a room inventory check list to make sure we didn't get charged for damages that were already there. That's cool. But, the room was not really the cleanest room that I've seen and it smelled smoky and old. But, to top it off there was blood on one of my pillows. Then, all night long, we had people outside of our door fighting. At 3:00 am, I heard people downstairs being loud. I'm assuming they were having a party and in the rules that we had to sign, it clearly says that there is to be no loud noise after a certain time. Anyway, this place sucks! Don't go there!

Family vacation

Would recommend Fri, Jan 2, 2009
This was a nice motel that looked recently refurbished. The rooms were a nice relaxing color. Even though it was winter, it was great to relax walking on the beach. There are lots of restaurants around in walking distance and lots of great stuff for the kids to do. It was right on the beach and had an oceanview room. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay.

Oceanfront Viking hotel was a nice place on the waterway. We checked in on 8-21-08. We were happy with the size of the room. However, be forewarned you must bring your own alarm clock. It was fairly conveinant for all the things we wanted to do. Our only downfall was that we could not go on the Dolphin Cruise due to weather. We had a nice family vacation.

We were highly disappointed in the dirt, bugs and hotel housekeeping staff. The only good feature was its right on the beach. it was our first time in Myrtle Beach and we learned a BIG lesson.

Bugs in my room

Would not recommend Thu, May 22, 2008
Let me say I was disappointed from the start. There are no services (room service, gym etc) the pool was not at all private, and located in the parking lot, oh parking was very limited. Some spaces were available across the street , but no cross walk on a very busy street. Then on the second day came the bugs.... Gross looking bugs, I am not a ug expert, but I thought they were roaches of some kind. I told the front desk, no offer to move us, only they would spray. Well I doubt they did because they kept coming. There were so many I invested in my own can of raid and went so far as to spray every article of clothing and suitcase before we left. So okay, can't control bugs 100% in the area as it is warmer and tropical, but the floors were so dirty my feet were black by the end of the night. Just plain gross!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A deal for the money

Would recommend Wed, May 7, 2008
We were very pleased to find an oceanfront efficiency for such a great price. It had a refrigerator, stove and sink and a coffee pot and toaster were supplied. Our sideview room still had a great view of the ocean and it overlooked the pool. It was a short walk to a restaurant. We also walked the beach to get to another restaurant at the nearest pier. The motel is older and needs to have the linoleum in the bathroom replaced, but it was clean and spacious.

Dining

It is a short drive to all types of restaurants. We drove to a seafood buffet at Seafare for which the motel had discount coupons and also ate at the Spring Garden Restaurant just a block from the hotel. We enjoyed lunch and shopping at Broadway at the Beach even though it is a few blocks north.
