Recent guest reviews

Very budget minded motel, that turned out to be more than we expected.

Worst motel i've ever been to, dirty, nasty people, mold in the room. Noisy room, I can go on for days, but I won't. DO NOT STAY HERE, DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOLPLE ANYMORE BUSINESS.

My girlfriend and I had a pleasant stay. The room was clean and in order. Adequate supplies were ready. The lady running the front showed excellent customer service. I truly appreciate being able to keep my car parked in the parking lot while we enjoyed one more trip to the ocean. This showed me that even though the business/workers had the money, care was still given.

I honestly only went there cause of the price. The people were extremely nice. It was suprisingly clean. No elevators but it wasnt bad even with someone with asthma on the 3rd floor. Pool was clean. They should invest in a ice machine but all around i loved it. Right across the street from the beach. Perfect for what i came there for :)

An average hotel with great access to the beach front.... hotel staff very nice.....maybe need the maintenance to keep up with the room better but overall it was last minute and it met my accommodation

Best hotel ever, i recomend to anyone who want to be scared of where there staying

Hotel was decent... it was cheap and it wasn't dirty. The hotel staff were kind of sketchy but we didn't have any problems. Only complaint we had was that they didn't have wifi.

Location was super. But traveling with small child, location chosen not ideal. Too noisy at night time. Rooms run down pretty bad. But doable after self sanitizing. No maid service. Fresh towels only delivered once. But it was adequate for a sleeping room.

the rooms were discusting, they need to update there heading newly renovated in the 1980's parking was non existant and you had all types of creepy people in the parking lot all night.

LOVED IT !!!!!!!!! THE MOTEL IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE OCEAN. THE REVIEWS ON THIS HOTEL WHERE AWFUL BUT I DON'T KNOW WHY. OUR ROOM WAS CLEAN AND THE STAFF WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!! WE WHERE RIGHT IN THE HEART OF ALL THE ATTRACTIONS. I HAVE NO COMPLAINTS AND WILL STAY THERE EVERY YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

For starters the hotel IS NOT newly renovated. The ceiling in the bathroom was bowing down from water damage from the room above. The paint was chipping off the walls and the ceiling in the rest of the room. The toilet kept running we had to shut the door so we didn't have to hear it. The phone did not work to call the front desk. We didn't have any maids come clean the room until the last day we stayed. The fire alarm was going off and the maintenance guy took it out and never replaced it right away so we had a night with no alarm. We also got to watch the episode of cops right outside of our room. I felt like I was staying the the ghetto. I will never stay there again.

it was okay. very peaceful but there were alot of people that was staying there getting there cars towed. very good view from the room we were in. sombody did come in our room though and asked if we needed towls im not sure if maybe they were lost or what. could have been better if we didnt have to walk up so many stairs with alot of thing.. :) but other then that is was pretty nice.

First off it was very hot, humid and stuffy in the main office. The air condition was off. There was no maid service in the four days and three nights we stayed. We had to get our own towels from the front office. The bathroom door would not shut and there was no ice maker at this lodging. The trash can was never emptied during our stay and was full by the time we left. There was no bag inside the trash container. This was a tall 30 gallon container. No shampoo was provider either. Toilet appear not to be properly sealed and had a smell to it. This was equivalent to or worst than staying in a tent or campsite.

We checked in to this hotel and it was just nasty and we immediatley checked out. The Happy Holiday Motel states that it was newly removated in 2007. The only thing that appeared new to me was the actual sign out front for the motel. I don't think a new tube of cocking is considered a remodel. This is not a place for older couples or anyone with kids. If your into the party seen and don't mind were you lay your head after drinking a bottle of booze then this is the place. The room stunk and the mold was so thick around the shower it looked like this was a lab project. And I can't describle what the walls looked like because I couldn't stand there long enough becaue of the fowl odor. The parking lot looked like something out of a Sci-fyi movie with nasty company hanging around.

The trip would have been great. Except the fact that the walls were paper thin and the door was not sealed at all. So you could heard everything outside. The main reason why it wasn't so great is because the hotel attracts the unwanted cheapo rawdy groups. The last night I was there some family came into the room next to mine and stayed up yelling and slamming doors all night. And by all night I mean from 12am-6am. I couldn't sleep at all. And I had to drive back home the next day. It was horrible. I will not be going back to that hotel again. I will pay the extra money and get a nicer one.

Everything went wrong from the time of check in to check out. It was very far from newly renovated, more of the roof caving in and the door in three pieces.Unprofessional staff,three wreckers very noisy towing cars, screaming peolpe, people beating on our door and trying to get in, the shower curtain had mold and urine stains, the bed was hard with springs digging into your side, pillows were hard, cable didn't work at all, and the toilet was coming out of the floor, needless to say, we had no sleep and ruined our day at Myrtle Beach.[...]

Old towels, sheet had burn hole, bathroom door had two holes kicked in to it.

This motel is not well kept, and does not appear to be renovated as advertised. The stairways, leading to the rooms, stinked of a strong urine odor all 3 days we were there. Also, the room we stayed in was not cleaned well enough, but after we asked for it to be re-cleaned, the staff was nice enough to have it cleaned for us. One nice thing about this motel is that it is within walking distance from the beach, and very close to nice eating places.

THE PICTURE DOES NOT TELL IT ALL THE HOTEL SHOULD HAVE ONLY BEEN $29.99 TOPS IT STANK IT WAS DIRTY THE TOWELS WERE HARD,DIRTY,AND STANK [...] I WAS TOTTALY DISSATISFIED WITH THIS BOOKING FAMILY FLEW IT OUT OF STATE TO MEET ME WHAT AN EMABBASSMENT THNKS GUYS

We were very disappointed with the run down condition of our room and this motel. The stairway leading to our room stunk like urine and made me gag every time I had to walk up it! There was a dead fly on the counter top next to the beet-up frige when we first entered our room. Also, the room was not properly cleaned, windows and mirrors had smudge marks, tiling in bathroom needed grouting and looked dirty.... False advertising...This motel could not have been newly renovated!
