Adequate Accomedations

This Resort was very close to the Beach. If you are a beach goer, great location. Rather cool this time of the year so I did not partake the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping areas. I wanted to do workouts in the mornings. It does not have a gym or workout facilities on the property. Have stayed at better properties in the past.

Good Hotel at a Good Price

Room was above average for the discounted price. We were on the eighth floor with nice views and in a nice location. The hotel itself is dated and somewhat in need of a remodel. Nonetheless I would recommend.

Great place for the money!

The price was incredible and we would definitely stay there again. The rooms were nothing fancy or modern at all, but the pools and the price were amazing!

Great location

I thought the hotel was in a great location, easy to get to a number of eating places, shopping, walk along the new boardwalk. The view of the ocean was wonderful, the room had a refrig, coffee maker & microwave. Unfortunately, it did not include coffee or styrofoam cups.

Great view and Quiet time.

Hotel was great. View was excellent and staff was friendly. Only complaint is that the elevator was a little noisey which can be scary.

Hotel was just ok.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary at Myrtle Beach. We wanted to be within walking distance of center city Myrtle Beach. This location is great! We were only 4 blocks from Pier14. The restaurant there is fabulous! The hotel was just ok. It was a "bare bones" hotel, no coffee in the room, no DVD player and very small bathroom for two. There was a restaurant in the hotel that had a daily breakfast buffet, the staff there was nice. Overall I wouldn't stay there again, but it wasn't horrible either.

Pier 14 restaurant has great food at a medium price. It's oceanfront and dining customers get to walk out on the pier saving a $7.00 per person charge for non-diners.
