Family-friendly hotel with a lazy river and outdoor pool
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.

  • Kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult
  • Kid’s Club for children 2 to 12
  • Heated outdoor pool and lazy river

Suites have full-sized kitchens as well as utensils, dishware, pots and pans. Suites also come with a washer and dryer.

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.

Great for "owners" average for "guests"

I would like to say that the hotel rooms were amazing! Very spacious and comfortable! My boyfriend and I were looking to spend a long, relaxing weekend on the beach. We flew in, packing only carry on luggage. There are 2 parts to the resort, condos and hotel. The hotel is a pretty good walk away from the main lobby. I was unaware, and it wasn't a pleasant surprise since we arrived with arms full of luggage. No sort of complimentary breakfast, and wifi only allows for one item log in at a time. Our biggest disappointment came when we tried to use an umbrella and chairs on the beach. We approached the man checking the items out by the pool. He looked at us and asked if the front desk sent us out there and we told him no. He then asked if we were "owners", to which we again told him no. Only owners were allowed to use the resorts umbrellas and chairs. Every time we asked a question, the answer came back to whether or not we were owners. It was slightly belittling and degrading. I did not appreciate feeling like less of a guest because I was a "guest" not an "owner".

On the beach!

Had a great deal on this hotel and opted for an upgraded the ocean view room with 2 queen beds. The view was absolutely amazing, and the beds were comfortable. Though I was a bit disappointed, the hotel itself, especially the rooms seemed to be old with kind of just some paint splashed on them over the years and the TV had terrible service- the picture was disproportionate and kept going in and out. Also, was not a huge fan that I had to park across the street because I was not staying in one of the "towers." Breakfast was surprisingly and amazingly cheap, the eggs needed to be cooked more but for the price it was pretty good. Overall, good spot if you want to be close to the ocean, you can literally step off the hotel's back deck and be on the beach. Also, though I did not use the pools, they looked very well maintained. I would give this hotel a 4-star rating compared to others hotels in the area, nothing more or less. Great family spot.

Westgate, really.

Among the worst travel experiences I can recall. Myrtle Beach did not disappoint ... but the Westgate did. Please understand that there is a difference in the 'Hotel' and the 'Resort' don't be fooled, the hotel is a mess, mold on the wall, slow draining sinks, poor WiFi connections (if you can get it to work). We had to change rooms twice and the breakfast omelet looked as if it was cooked in old cooking oil ... on the other hand the ocean view was great. Don't think I want to stay with Westgate again.

Check your room assignment

My recommendation would be to print your confirmation and make sure the desk clerk is aware of your room assignment. I booked a Two Bedroom OCEANFRONT Villa and received an Oceanview room. The desk clerk mentioned that when I booked through another company it should have been an oceanview room. It was like I was being punished for booking through another company.

Clean, pleasant, affordable stay

This was my second time staying at the Westgate. The first time was a girl's weekend out and we did not have an oceanfront room. If you don't get oceanfront, you'll get a view of Family Kingdom which isn't necessarily bad either, especially at night when the park lights up. My husband and I stayed this week and got an oceanfront room on the third floor. The view was great and the room has been updated. We were very impressed. I wish there were more options for king-size regular oceanfront rooms without more upgrades. We had two double beds and obviously needed only one. There also was no microwave in our room, but there was a mini-fridge. Most standard rooms have microwaves and we brought food that needed microwaving. We normally stay at the Landmark Resort, but for five days, we needed something a little less expensive. I only have two complaints; one is that there are no indoor pools and only one hot tub. It was very windy during our visit and although the pools are heated, I had no desire to swim much (my husband didn't mind the wind at all). It would also be nice if there was a continental breakfast as their breakfast items are pricey. The Westgate is located near the heart of Myrtle Beach, which has pros and cons. You are required to park across the street in a parking lot and crossing the street is a pain. My second complaint was at the front desk upon check-in. My husband and I are under 25 and although I am visibly (six months) pregnant, the young man (who looked under 25 himself) at the desk required us to sign a form saying we wouldn't cause noise complains or serve alcohol to those under 21. That was fine as we do not drink, but he called it a "don't be stupid" agreement. For someone that is visibly pregnant to have to sign a "don't be stupid" agreement and have it be called such was insulting. My husband was not offended and perhaps it's my emotions right now, but being talked down to when we are paying as much money as the next couple is unnecessary. Next time, we will find a place that has a parking garage on the same side of the street as the hotel and indoor pools. If you need a good, clean, affordable getaway, try the Westgate.

Friendly's is directly across from the hotel - they have American style seated dining and also a walk-up window for ice cream. If you want an affordable meal without driving anywhere, try Friendly's.

Spring break

The hotel must be going thru changes. There were no pictures in the room or halls. There was no toilet paper holder, it just hung out on the counter:/. It was not too easy to find ice or a vending machine. The vending machine we found ha d maybe 10 items and way over priced.
