Good experience friendly staff! Only u..issue was only 1 working elevator in our building

We came down for our 10th wedding Anniversary and were excited to stay in the same hotel we did when we got married.....however it’s definitely changed! Appon arrival our room wasn’t ready so we had to go find something to do until then, no big deal, finally we got back to check in and there was only one lady checking people in with a line all the way to the door, I patiently waited, I work with the public so I understand, however she was not very personable. After we got to our room, we discovered that it was dirty (hair in the tub, all over the floor and sand all over the place) I went back down to let them know that we wanted to switch rooms (I had to wait another 15mins in the check in line) and the gentleman didn’t seem to act like he cared our room was dirty, he didn’t seem like he wanted to try and work with us to move rooms, we were told nothing was available and the only thing they could do was clean ours. We definitely won’t be back to this hotel......Happy 10th Anniversary to us, dirt and all!!!

We were in club level so got free beer and wine from 5 to 6 which was cool. The room was large. Some cleanliness issues with a stain on the pillowcase but it was taken care of. Good location. We also got free mini golf.

We couldn't check in early but were able to park in the parking garage which was VERY helpful! Valet staff was amazing! Very nice and helpful. One even gave our son some rubber duckies that he is currently squeaking...repeatedly!

Check-in was quick and easy. Their parking garage is across the street so be aware of that. Housekeeping was polite and guest services treated everyone equally. The room was clean except for the bedroom windows. However, they did fix it. This hotel is close to many restaurants and attractions; perfect for people looking for something to do. We had a corner room but it was still big enough to be comfortable and the ocean view was spectacular. I will be visiting with them again.

We checked in on a Monday afternoon but our room was cleaned until Wednesday, only because we called front desk several times. A lot of the hotel,staff were very rude. One staff member told me that the hotel doesn’t pay very much so they have a problem keeping employees? They hire a third party cleaning service to clean rooms, most of them are Jamaican and you can bearly understand them. Location was very good, but this hotel needs to hire more professional staff and ones that do their jobs well.

The value of the room was beyond expectation. Ocean front, large kitchen, two bedroom suite, free breakfast at a great price. We were checked in late because the room wasn't cleaned yet. Then in the following days the cleaning staff did not come into the room to clean. Seems as tho they hadn't hired enough cleaning staff. Yet I would still recommend staying there.

Very nice hotel and kid friendly. Even breakfast was very delicious.

Great hotel on the beach, great rooms and friendly staff! Perfect location for those wanting to be near Broadway at the Beach. My wife and I visited Myrtle Beach and really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The beds were comfortable and the room appeared to be recently updated. We would definitely stay here again.

Hotel was Great very clean. The ocean view was amaazing the room was very comfy and made us feel at home.

We enjoyed staying towards North Myrtle Beach. The room was not very peaceful, lots of loud outside noise could be heard at all hours. The staff was very friendly. We stayed 4 nights and our room was straightened up once. Ran out of tissues, not replaced. 8th floor club level boasted of seperate breakfast area, but we ate at the north tower, which was hard to get to and extremely small and cramped. We loved the beach area! Rented chairs/umbrella to use while we were there.

Very clean rooms, close to Broadway on the Beach. Parking is not on location but valet parking is available for $10 a day.

This was our first time staying in this hotel and thought with what we paid for it and the location, it would be a great stay... we were so disappointed! The terrible experience started as soon as we pulled up to check in. It was around 11pm on a Friday night and I was the only guest in the lobby. The parking lot was full, so I pulled over to the curb, out of the way if anyone needed to drive through. There was no one at the front desk so I had to wait for about 10 minutes for some to show. As soon as the staff came to the desk, one of the women had a HORRIBLE attitude. She just looked at me and asked if I needed something. No hello, welcome, or anything like that. I felt like an inconvenience to her night. I was the only one there so it's not like she was super busy! I told her I was there to check in and she said I would have to wait until their computers came back up and someone could log in. She then proceeded to yell and complain the the other staff about how stupid the previous shift was for shutting the computers off and said she had no time for that. It was very awkward to be standing there and hear all of this. The next morning, the free breakfast area smelled of mold and mildew. We opted for Cracker Barrel down the street instead. Awful place, horrible staff. Will not be staying here again.

Room was clean and furniture was good condition. But it was a little loud when people closing doors. But overall it was better than I expected

The room was spacious and clean, and the view over the beach was gorgeous! I arrived a little too early for check in but the staff was gracious and friendly, and very attentive. The hotel is right on the beach front, which is perfect. It's about a 20 minute walk from the main tourist drag but there's a Starbucks and a Dunkin Donuts close by, as well as a few restaurants. The client privilege card gets you free mini-golf. :) Overall, I had a really nice stay at the Carolinian.

Staff and management are extremely non professional, dishonest and rude.

Was not prepared to park as far away from the hotel as I had to. I took my elderly mother to the beach for her birthday and she was very winded by the time we got to the parking garage. Not only was the walk tough on her, but the elevator in the parking garage was out of service. Had I known about the parking situation, I probably wouldn't have booked this hotel!

Our 2 bedroom apartment was more that we expected. Very roomy and comfortable with lots of privacy. House staff was very accommodative. Will be back- thank you!!!

Hotel was great ... we booked and payed online in June ...nice stay but when we arrived home they had taken an additional six hundred dollars from our debit card!! The hotel can't tell us why it happened and offered a 100 dollar gift card when we return!!! Ha... what a joke

Hotel a few years ago was great..now not so much. Bed springs were worn. Room was not cleaned one day at all. Toilet paper and coffee not refilled. Found a huge bug in the room. Not impressed and will not be staying here again.
