A Grand Strand address and a heated lazy river and outdoor pool are major draws at the Myrtle Beach by Westgate Resorts property, but the children's water play area, Kid’s Club and many planned adult activities elevate its true family resort status. Studios and suites make it easy to go on vacation with the kids thanks to residential amenities like full kitchens, washers and dryers and all the extras. Parents love the fact that kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult.
Rooms

Guests enjoy beach and city views from the studios and suites, which incorporate tropical accents like palm-inspired lamps and coastal artwork. Even the studios have a place to make a meal -- each is equipped with a kitchenette complete with mini-refrigerator, two-burner stovetop, microwave and toaster. Suites have full-sized kitchens as well as utensils, dishware, pots and pans. Suites also come with a washer and dryer.

Property features

A heated outdoor pool and lazy river and Kid's Club keep the kids occupied. Potty-trained children ages 2 to 12 are welcome to play video and board games and make arts and crafts -- all under the supervision of staff.

 

Adults, meanwhile, participate in the multiple planned activities on site, from jewelry making to Mary Kay facials and feet treatments. Fees may apply.

myrtle spring break

I stayed at the westgate for my mini spring break getaway, just to hit the beach and go out with friends. Overall I mean I am a college student so I mainly chose this hotel due to the low prices mixed with a convenient location. Obviously you're gonna get what you're paying for so this wasn't some elaborate luxury hotel. However for the price we paid I think it was a perfect spot. The pools in the back and jacuzzi were great along with the mini bar I thought were a great plus. It's right on the beach so you don't have to drive anywhere and there were plenty of places to get food around the area. The room itself was clean for the most part Our bathroom light was kind of old and would take a few minutes to turn on and the door was kind of hard to open. But the service was excellent and very helpful! If you are traveling with family I don't know if it would be the best choice because of the size and most of the people staying were younger. However definitely a perfect spot for college kids!

Not very pleased

I was not pleased,it started when I arrived for my 4 o'clock check in. After driving 3 and a half hours to get to the beach and get to the hotel they told me that the computers were down and they lost my reservation so I had to pre register and wait until the people that got there at 10am to get checked in.I told them that I had my confimation on my phone and they told me it didn't matter I still had to wait for people that didn't have a reservation.I was up set but I left my number and told them to call me when they had my rooom ready,3 hours later without hearing from them I just went back to the hotel to see if my room was ready and it was. I got my key and went to my room to find out it was not like the room that the orbits rep. had showed me when I booked the room and it was smaller then the room I had booked from orbits previously at another hotel last year.I will not take my family to this hotel nor refer my friends to this hotel. The reason I gave them two stars is because the bed slept good and the kiddie pool was nice that my kids didnt even enjoy.

A Great Time and Value

It was wonderful. The price was great, the staff very friendly and accomodating, and the facilities were great. I had three children with me and they loved the children's water area and lazy river. The only disappointing thing was the hotel advertised an arcade for children, but there were only four machines.

Don't waste your money

There are a thousand hotels at Myrtle Beach, so don't waste your money here. We stayed at the Westgate because it was getting late and we didn't have prior reservations. We had gone to several hotels but couldn't get a room. We were charged over $120 a night with a two night minimum. The first evening, we realized they charge for WiFi. Who charges for WiFi?.... Even Krispy Kreme donuts gives free WiFi. I have never had to pay for internet service before. The next day, after seeing two roaches in the room, we wanted our money back. All they would do was offer to send an exterminator. Besides the roaches, the high price for an old run down room and no free internet....the staff had an attitude as if they didn't care. After-all, we're just a couple of people out of the thousands they see. Don't be fooled by the nice entrance. For the rest of our visit, we stayed just down the street...much nicer hotel, no roaches, free internet and very nice staff.

Lot to do in Myrtle beach for all ages. Don't stay at the Westgate Myrtle Beach. You will waste your money and sleep with roaches and pay for internet.

Great beach location

Location was great. Parking really sucks. We went on a casino cruise, got back around 1am and had to park in their 3rd parking lot which is 1.5 blocks away. I was in heels. Some people were picketing the hotel. Not sure what that was about. The signs said they were liars and the judge said to pay. The hotel is walking distance from the 2nd ave pier, which sets off fireworks. Husband and I went to the bar upstairs, ate dinner, and watched the fireworks.

There are so many things to do within walking distance from this hotel. Across the street you have an amusement park which has several things to do. A couple of buildings down, there was a water park. Beside the water park, they had para-sailing.
