The Much Needed Mother/Daughter Get-A-Way

After having a horrible year of doctors, hospitals & chemo for my Mom, I promised that we would go away for a few days to wherever she wanted to go and she chose Myrtle Beach. The Sandcastle is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Everything was nice & clean. Staff was very friendly & helpful. We swam in the pool, used the lazy river & Mom went into the hot tub (she loved it). We shopped at the outlets, saw 2 shows & the Italian Restaurant next door was wonderful. Lulu's Cafe across the street - is a must. A wonderful place to come back to in the future. Thank you.

New Yrs Getaway for two

The hotel itself could use some serious upgrades. Not worth the money at all. The cleaning lady was great but the front desk staff sucked!

Myrtle in November

I would assume the area around this hotel is more lively during peak season but the first weekend of November there is NOTHING open after 10pm anywhere near this hotel. The hotel itself is what you would expect from a 3star hotel: ok beds, small bathrooms, and ok service. Nothing special but nothing too bad either. Recommend for a cheap get away or maybe it is better during summer months?

Broadway at the Beach is the only area that seemed to have anywhere worth while to be in after 10pm.

Beds where very hard. Just like sleepying on the floor. They give you a coffee maker but no coffee for it. Had to go to the lobby to get ice and 2nd floor for drinks.

Great Getaway

For the price, the room was clean, needs updating, but the balcony had a true ocean view - very very nice, staff was friendly and helpful - location was great - parking was a plus.

Business travel

The ad said newly renovated and it wasn't. The only new thing was a carpet and apparently it was recently painted. The pillows were old and lumpy, the lighting was dim and the TV was in need of and update. Although a coffee pot was provided there were no proper paper cups only small plastic drinking cups which were far too hot to handle. The towels were paper thin and over all it was a dingy, dark room. I believe that it is mis-represented in the ad and an upsetting disappointment. I stayed 2 nights and the maid came in and threw the spread back on the bed-the sheets weren't even tucked in I would not reccommend it.

No coffee anywhere in motel. Had to ask for soap, shampoo every day. One VERY unfriendly desk worker that made the whole motel seem even more shabby than the place already was. Would not recommend except for the location by the beach.
