Nice

Overall, everything was fine. We spent most of our time out of the hotel but we had no real complaints. Staff was friendly and got whatever we needed when asked. Nice location on the strip. We had fun and would stay there again.

Plenty of dining within a mile or two and some within walking distance. Broadway at the beach had a good night life atmosphere for a younger crowd.

I would avoid this hotel

While the hotel appears clean and neat, there were cockroaches in our room. There is only one shakey elevator servicing 8 floors and the staff has priority. We ended up using the stairs several times because the trash bins or laundry bins were taking up the elevator or it would be stuck on a floor while they took care of their business. When we arrived we were told there was parking in front of the hotel and the next day we were told to move our car because they just turned all those spaces into 15 minute parking. Our options were across the street, or two streets away in a parking garage. The staff is pleasant however we definitly were not the priority.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The location is only minutes away from Broadway at the Beach, a fantastic shopping and dining and entertainment location open until 11pm.

Location on the beach was good

The hallway outside the room smelled, the room was dated, the bed was hard as a board, the TV was old and small, but the location was right on the beach

OK Hotel but not as it was billed

Hotel was advertised as being newly renovated, I guess if you call painting newly renovated it was. Upon check in staff was friendly and nice. The room, which was an Ocean front w/kitchenette, was clean and was freshly painted but that was it, several light fixtures were broken, with one falling off the wall and one with bare wires exposed. The sliding door to the balcony handle was broken off and was being held in place by duck tape. The kitchenette appliances were old and rusty and the bathroom was far from renovated. we asked that the lights, and slider be fixed which they were. But for a hotel to boast just renovated rooms, well lets just say that was a joke in my opinion. Overall the hotel was fine, but I wouldn't stay there again. For the price there just wasn't enough amenities, no coffee, no continental breakfast of any kind. Parking was an issue as you had to park several blocks off site in a parking garage. Room pictures are deceptive so don't expect what you see in the online pics at the hotel.

Great Stay

The hotel staff was very friendly. My boyfriend and I went down on an early flight and although there was no early check in, we called the hotel and they said feel free to use Theire parking, beach access, and pool until check in. We had a sideview room and still had a complete view of the ocean!! The hotel is in the perfect spot between broadway and the pier/ferris wheel. Piggly wiggly (super market) is two blocks away so you can stock up for snacks. Overall was a great trip! Oh but for you women...bring a hairdryer! There is a cafe underneath the hotel which has great food as well!

Good place to stay

It was a good place to stay if you are needing a place to sleep. We did not stay at the hotel during the day.

What A Great Place To Stay!

The hotel's location was wonderful. Very close to attractions, airport and many restaurants! Did not need a rental car and taxis were very reasonable. The hotel was clean, the outside pool and lazy river were great! Access to the ocean was right there and the employees were very helpful! The cabana bar was nice to sit and enjoy a drink with the marvelous surroundings! Would suggest visiting Broadway On The Beach and don't miss the fabulous fireworks over the ocean. Will absolutely stay here again the next trip to Myrtle Beach!
