I wasnt able to enjoy the stay of my room because i check in 1243 midnight when the booking was for march 6 2017

I really enjoyed my stay at The Oceanviking Hotel at Myrtle Beach. The room was clean and very kid friendly. The only complaint was that there was no tv in the second bedroom. The staff was friendly. The hotel supplied dishes for the guest to use. The hotel was in a good location and close to many attractions. I would stay at this hotel again in the future.

My main complaint about this hotel, is there were no staff for a signifigant amount of time, including early morning. I wanted to check out early, 6am, but there was no one there. a sign on the door instructed us to go to another hotel, 8 blocks down for service, but that hotel's office was closed. the office opened up at 7:30 am, however the employee was almost 15 minutes late. I am disappointed about that.

We had a tv with static. Called the office they sent someone immediately to fix it. There was no shower curtain we called someone to bring one they did. We were given plenty of towels. Room was clean and comfortable. When we arrived on a cold February night the heat was on which felt great. Overall, for the price it was excellent.

Toom could have been cleaner. Had some cob webs in the door way and window was not clean

Great place to party. Great location and the room was better than I expected.

We found cereal underneath the chair. It's was obviously a busy weekend and I could not find another hotel. But if it wasn't I would've

The hotel staff was not very friendly. I had an issue with my debit card being suspended because of using it crossing state lines. They thought it had been stolen and i had to wait until 8am Saturday morning to have it fixed. When I checked in friday night the woman at the counter said I owed an additional $22.50 and would not let me wait until morning to pay it.

Nothing like how pictures look. Could have been a whole lot better. Will not go bk ever again

I thought we were getting a good deal but like past reviews state you get what you pay for. I actually couldn't wait to get off of vacation because I hated this hotel so much. Everything from the walls the ceiling fan the refrigerator and the towels were dirty and stained. Thank god I brought extra towels they couldn't pay me to use their towels. The bed linens looked dirty as well and there was this horrible stench as soon as you step into the room and the chairs they had in the room were horribly stained as well. I don't think the room has been thouroughly cleaned in ages, at least that's how it looks. Like I said never again! I would rather pay an extra 10-20 bucks a night to avoid ever staying at a hotel like this that is run down. The owners/management should be ashamed of this place.

Based on the price, pleasantly surprised how large the room was and excited it had a large kitchenette with a medium size refrigerator. I will definitely stay at the Oceanfront Viking Motel on future trips to Myrtle Beach!

It wasn't bad. Rooms are big enough, everything worked. Not a bad place if you're on a budget, want to be on the beach and aren't picky. It would've been nice to have an earlier check in time but there are plenty of places to kill some time.

overall location good but poor parking, staff not overly friendly or attentive

When I got to the hotel I was charged $28 more than what I had already paid and a $50 security deposit. When you sign the sheet for your security deposit it says you can get it back between 8-11am on the day of checkout.WRONG! I had to wait until 20 minutes after 10 for an "inspector" that never showed up and the girl at the counter wouldn't check the room herself. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. The tv is spotty at best, there's no wifi, a side-view room actually means no view, and the bathroom and kitchen are very out-dated.

The hotel was very old. The stove was rusty and burners bent out of shape. Beds were old and bos springs had holes in material. Bathtub was cracked. The door looked like it had been broken into. Very bad place. I would never go there again!

This has to be the WORST Hotel that I have ever seen. The elevator didn't work, the room was FILTHY, even the walls were smeared with something that looked like feces. The floors were NASTY. I would definitely NOT recommend anyone to stay at this place EVER!

we arrived late and Had requested easy access to the room as my husband is disabled. this hotel went way beyond all expections to make it easy for my husband to get to our room. rge room was all it was stated to be and more. the staff could not have been better to deal with and the room wax spotless clean. easy access to the beach, I know we will use this hotel again and again for our trips to myrtle beach. i highly suggest to anyone traveling to myrtle to stay at this hotel for a great beach visit. [...]thank you viking motel [...] for a wonderful weekend for our grandsons birthday trip, it was simply perfect.

Motel is in the perfect location, walked to the beach from our room, close to amusement park and restaurants. However, the manager of the Best Western Grand Stand next door was our first experience with people in South Carolina. We checked in with the not so friendly clerk at the Viking to face this guy. Apparently half ot the parking lot at the Viking belongs to the snooty Best Western Grand Stand. We had no where to park to unload our luggage, so we parked in one of the spaces marked for guest of the Best Western. The manager/owner whatever he was drives up in his Lexus SUV with his walkie talkie telling us we need to move, I explained we were only unloading our stuff and then we would move. He was very gruff, saying park parallel behind the cars over there. There was no one parked in any of his spaces, so I didn't see the big deal. It took us 5 minutes to put our things in our room and we were off to explore South Carolina. Our room was not fancy. Appliances are older, air conditioning was an air conditioner in the wall and there was black (i am asuming mold) in the white caulking around tub. We felt like the room was sufficient for what we needed. We were only in the room to shower and sleep, so it was a great price for what we got. It has to be hard to keep something clean that close to the beach.

Is there anything less than no a star rating?. The first room I got was Real bad. the lights and tv diddnt work, and the smell of mold and milksew hit me before i walked thrugh the door, i finaly got a light to work and realizwd that the foor was covered in mold and mildew. I went to get a diffrent room and the lady tried to tell me that the room smelled like that because they had just converted to all non smoking rooms, but i had to convince her that it was mold. and then the next room was a little better except for somthing was BITTING me ALL NIGHT LONG, i have bug bites all down my side from somthing in the bed, but hey for less than half the price of a diffrent motell at last minuet, id stil go somewhere else, i considered jest sleeping in my car. so sorry to rant but dont go to this place

not a place for kids, but if your just looking for a cheap relaxing stay i would have to say, its not the worst place i've ever been in. it could definately use some updating, but you also get what you pay for!
