The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach was right there at the room which was nice so overall a good stay

This place is an absolute dump. Dirty and falling about.

I arrived at the office at 8:00 pm and I'm calling out Hello and no one is coming out. I did this for 15 minutes even calling them on the phone and no answer. I remembered when I had seen the photos they had a bar in the back and I found the gate to get to the back,very dimly lit. I told the bartender that I had a room reserved and no one was answering me. He said he would check it out and came back in 10 minutes and found someone. There is no swim up bar and the pool is only 4 feet.The best feature was the ocean view that I paid extra for and the room did have an oven, fridge and microwave and dishes. I wouldn't stay there again.

Everyone is very friendly here. Could not get tv to work in room. But could be user error. To many controllers. I will be be returning to them to stay again.

First time staying on the North side of Myrtle Beach, it was a lot more calm and friendly. The bar shut down around 11 each night, so it wasn't too much! Only thing i didnt like was its only 2 floors in one building and 3 floors in the other... small, but cute.

We sent our son and his wife on their honeymoon there and they loved it.They didn't wanna leave But it was time to get back to work.They said it was great.Thank you

We were staying only one night, before checking into a condo for the rest of the week. It served that purpose well, but would not have wanted an extended stay. The room was on the first floor. Small terrace was adjacent to the pool, but the railing had no gate, so could not go direct to the pool from the room. The room decor and furnishings were tired, but comfortable. Full size refrigerator and compact kitchenette. The kitchenette was poorly equipped -- would have been difficult to prepare or eat a meal using the utensils provided. No ice bucket in the room -- had to ask for a plastic bag at the front desk for use with the ice machine. Inconvenient locations of electrical receptacles for device charging. Junk refrigerator and AC units were sitting at the edge of the parking lot. Poolside bar is not swim-up. Staff was very pleasant.

Needs repairs. There are better places to stay with ocean views for same price. Stayed for view & heated pool. Pool was broken & that sucked. On the positive the place is quiet. There was literally nothing going on. No traffic & restaurant was closed.

Had bugs in our room on 2 different days. People staying next to us had bugs in their room. Never saw cleaning staff with any cleaning supplies other than sheets, towels and vacuum. Our bath towels were dirty. Hotel needs lots of repairs but is close to beach.

We really enjoyed the Bar and Grill by the pool. Beach access was through a gate at the pool and just a few feet to the beach. There was a DJ playing at the pool one day and a live band the next. Room was quiet. We would stay here again next time we are in the area.

Tiki bar has great food. Right on beach. Nice people................

Absolutely loved the location!! Right on the beach! Loved the pool with the bar and the lazy river! Although bar tender lady needs a little help with learning how to make frozen drinks! The room needed alittle help. Could have been alittle cleaner! There were some stains on the sheets! I killed what looked like 2 little cockroaches! And my fiancé found a big one outside while walking back to our room from the pool! The microwave- the 0 didn't work. And it sounded like it was about to give up on working altogether. The lights in the room flickered a lot some times would barely turn on! There was no phone in the room, and no do not disturb sign to hang on the door! The maid was really cool and super nice! but there were some sketchy people around some workers some customers. It has potential to be a really nice place to stay it just needs some updates and a good cleaning!

Are beds were never made we had to ask for towels toilet paper wasn't replaced I also had a dress disappear that I paid 27 dollars for it was maroon withe purple and blue in it

This hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. The pool needed cleaning and we never saw a lazy river.

Very nice. Right on the beach. Made it very convenient. Room was good and clean.front desk personnel was very nice and helpfull.

After driving 11hrs from Ohio, when we reached the hotel the lady at the desk was very helpful and so nice. Our reservations at the Sheraton had been canceled by accident (our fault not theirs ) so this hotel was last minute that I found . It was very clean, had a pathway that led right to the beach. I don't like that the pool closed at 9PM though. They also have a lazy river . All around good experience

If you're looking for a cheap place to stay, its fine. The location is awesome...however...our "non-smoking" room kicked in an asthmatic response, the shower has mold all through the tiles...it just felt dirty. The people were nice but I was glad to come home.

The pool and lazy river was nice but it would have been nice if the hotel was cleaner.

location was good. hotel was dirty!!!!!housekeeping couldn't speak english they brought their children to work with them and the children helped clean!!!WOW!!!!!!!!!!UNBELIEVABLE!!!!fireworks set off in the parking lot by hotel guess 9:30 at night at first we thought it was a gun then realized what was going on two nights in arow!!!microwave didn't half work breakers keep throwing shower would turn cold or really hot!would not stay there again i guess i got what i paid for!!!!!!
