Suitable Hotel for Great Vacation

We arived early and were allowed to check in. The first employee we encountered wasn't very friendly but the others were very helpful. Cleaning was sufficient and accomodations were great for our vacation. The side doors to the main building do not require keys for entry so I did feel a bit unsafe, but other than that, we had no complaints.

Not quite as advertised...

From the hotels' website we expected a much newer, bigger place. On the negative side, parking was a nightmare, the elevator was slow, the beds rock hard, televisions small, the sofa was not big enough for 2 people to sit comfortably although the room was supposed to hold six. I immediately covered it with a sheet before sitting down. Also by the 2nd day everything in the room felt damp. On the plus side, the view was absolutely spectacular, the staff exceptionally responsive and the rooms though old were clean. You should bring your own towels for the beach. So if you're looking for a great location and don't care about modern amenities this is an okay choice. We are not particularly choosy since we tend to use the room just for sleeping, but we won't be coming back to what we called our room at Motel 6.

If you're a carnivore like most of my family, try The Grill House in North Myrtle Beach. Definitely worth the drive. They have great seafood too!

Great location, below average place.

Our overall trip was great. The hotel is located in a nice, central location to things for people of all ages. The hotel itself left a little to be desired considering we had to change rooms on the first night. Room #1 had a sliding glass door to the balcony that would take two people to close. Room #2 had an air conditioning unit that leaked so bad there was water behind the wall and the carpet was damp. We made another service call for room 2 and toughed it out. The pool was excellent but if you did'nt get up by 8am to place your towel out, you could'nt find a seat. The live music provided on Friday and Saturday was by far the best entertainment. That guy was great!

Couldnt ask for much more!!!

Booked the trip online, and had no troubles checking in or out. Hotel was in a great location on the strip, not very far from anything. Hotel was not smoke free, so if there was any complaints it owuld be that. Other than that, everything about it was 100%.

We had a great stay!

The hotel itself and location was great for the price. They have a great jacuzzi. Two complaints we have are the clerk who checked us in seemed to be offended by the fact we booked thru orbitz and was a bit rude ~and~ the tiki bar by the pool, the bar tender rushed us off b4 servin us the drinks we ordered sayin he wasnt busy enuf to stay open even tho several people @ the pool were ordering and goin back to their chairs.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

They were very accomadating to our small child. We had a nice crib in the room and they put us on a quiet floor. Our other child enjoyed playing in the pools and lazy river. It was a nice experience. Only downfall is the staff isn't very helpful if you have questions about the area.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Get hotel through Orbitz and see if there are any promotion codes. And save a lot of money. Calling hotel cost more.

not the best place up here

no iron or iron board had to put a deposit to get it, no alarm clock, no coffee for the coffee maker, noise coming from everywhere, cabana bar drinks cost a fortune no lock for the safe in the room. the price was good so I guess you get what you pay for
