I liked the amenities the property had to offer, such as the jacuzzi tub in each suite.

The room was dirty! The vent in the bathroom leaked water on the floor causing my daughter to fall and get hurt. I told them about it and they didn't care or ask if she was okay! Sent a tech up to fix it and it still leaked. So it wasn't even fixed. There was black mold on the ceiling so this has been an ongoing problem.

Great property, on the Ocean, great looking building well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable, housekeeping was very good. Other guests were polite and respectful of space and property, very comfortable place to relax. Location is great, very quiet but two blocks from Main st. Restaurants, and very close to major stores making it so convenient to buy all necessities while avoiding tourist trap rip off prices. Overall it was a great experience would recommend facility and will most likely return.

I had stayed here when this property was newer - they've let maintenance slip BIG TIME. A/C unit failed the AM of our last day/night there. They did ZERO. Ended up having to sleep in another room and had to move late at night. (Why not call text prior to 10:00 PM???). BIG issue also - the smell of WEED in the halls and on the beach/pool area. Staff didn't seem to care. Maids we extremely slow. Didn't get maid service until very late afternoon. Won't be back.

I love that we were so close to the beach, also the room was clean and spacious.

Great customer service. Friendly. Eager to help.

I really liked the suite. I would have liked room service (did it exist and I missed it?). The beach access was great!!

Restaurant atmosphere was bland and food choices limited. No signage suggesting food service poolside. Overpriced for the accommodations.

Access to beach was easy nice pool cleaning services excellent beach clean Good water pressure in shower Need bigger beds parking garage difficult to park in concerned with rental car getting hit by door

I signed for a room with two double beds, but they were only full sized beds. I finally got up and slept on the sofa! The beds were, in my opinion, way too soft. It was extremely difficult to get in and out of the bath because the sides were so high.

Terrible employees were very unprofessional to me and my wife because we are young and they treated us very unprofessional even tho we just came with our children to enjoy the weekend since I run a business and it’s very hard to get out for the weekend .

No joke, the man who checked us in had terribly rotten teeth and drops of spit fell onto his shirt twice while Talking to us. His appearance was disheveled and it was terribly uncomfortable to Watch. Other staff we interacted with were super nice with great southern hospitality. Our room had a gorgeous ocean view and was comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed having a table in the balcony to enjoy a Take our pancake breakfast from one of the zillion nearby pancake houses. The table was cheap and flimsy though, and if you touch it wrong, the legs came off. For the price, this hotel was a great value and we would stay here again.

The hotel staff was extremely friendly. Accessibility to beach was great. Indoor pool seemed a bit dirty but outdoor space was great. Would recommend

We had a beautiful oceanfront 2 bedroom room. Our room was well decorated and very clean. Plenty of towels and washcloths provided. (I usually have to ask for more) We had a problem with our balcony door not opening. Front desk had an engineer up there at night and it was fixed within minutes. We received text messages throughout the day asking if everything was ok. Indoor and outdoor pools looked great. I LOVED the free DVD rental in the lobby. That was a nice touch and something I have never seen before. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone questioning where you should stay.

The stay was nice I enjoyed it. I thought the bedroom was ocean front. But it was still nice and the greeter with the golf cart was extremely nice.

Had a great get a way extended weekend with my sister. The only thing I wish I knew was that everything closes down really early in the off season. ie barefoot landing and Broadway. Hotel was great and centrally located in North Myrtle!

We greatly apologize for the inconveniences you encountered during your vacation and even more so for your daughter getting hurt. I have reached out to our management team to be sure that the front desk team is trained on the proper way to resolve situations such as this if they arise in the future. We assure you that we never intended to give the impression that we did not care. We care deeply about all of our guests and their well being.

We are extremely disappointed that we were unable to provide you with a vacation that met your expectations. We assure you that we did make an effort to resolve the issue with the A/C but because each of our units are individually owned, we were obligated to speak with this owners specified A/C vendor. This caused the delay. We hope that our management teams resolution for this issue was met with understanding. We would love another opportunity to provide you with a vacation that exceeds your expectations.
