Recent guest reviews

They had roaches! I asked for cleaning service to come and vacuum which took them over 6 hours to come.

The fact the pool was to small and kids kept jumping around my kids so we werent able to stay in the pool long and people kept putting big water toys in the pool and the elevator was to small and they didnt have buggy trollys where they were suppose to be we had to carry all of our bags to the top floor!

Very upset with cleanliness, roaches crawling around, dusty ceiling fans, shower did not work, and think the bed spreads have been their since 1970’s.

Photos on line looked much better than our actual room. Good location

It was hot and we had to carry our luggage up to the 5 floor and they had a box air conditioner that only cold one area of the room no microwave and it smelled like weed and piss on the floor my kids wasn't happy at the time of checking in the desk worker was rude .it was not a good stay wouldn't recommend nobody to stay there unless you like hot rooms and piss smell and don't need a microwave or you like smoking weed it be up your area.it was noise we stayed on the beach until dark because didn't like the room. The beach was good but they need to update the hotel

First of all first encounter with an hotel staff was horrible second person not so bad. The pictures on the web does not match the hotel not one bit....it's dirty and smelly. Also nothing is refundable here, u pay for it you will lose it if u don't stay.

Also at check out, we were not given a receipt or any type of confirmation showing we turned in our 2 keys and checked out.

The rooms were not ocean view as described in the ordering process. The hotel staff hardly understood English. The smell of marijuana was outrageous, a long with the front desk girl was so high out of her mind she couldn't do her job right.

Cost of having a room near the beach is high in Myrtle Beach but there are no restaurants nor mini marts near this place and is totally an older establishment. But being able to walk out almost directly onto the beach and having free parking is the only real saving grace. I woud say be careful of your vehicle becausd if you park i the overfill, which you will, its not manned. Good luck

Got there. Had charges we were unaware of, hotel had window units for A/C which did not work and had to be replaced. Cockroaches on the walls. No microwave. Then they refused to refund me my security deposit.

I booked 2 rooms separately and requested 3 times that the rooms be together, they said they would try but they were different room types which I understand but they weren't even on the Same floor. I arrived at 7 am and was told I would be given a call as soon as the room was ready, went back by 4pm and the check in line was long, I was given my keys so everything was ready but I never received the call and the lady wasn't there anymore. The room was a lot cleaner than expected. The beds were very comfortable. The stove only had 2 working burners. My Ocean view had no ocean view, only pool view. The carpet could use a deep cleaning. The house keeper was very friendly and accommodating. Check out and location were good.

Overall the location was the only good thing about the hotel. The resort fees listed on this site are incorrect and when that was pointed out to the staff I was informed that it has been that way for 2 years. Once checked in we found the carpet in rhe room to be full of sand, the oven had old pizza in it, and there was a used sock under the bed. Following this the Wi-Fi worked the 1st day and then never again. The washers on the 1st floor were broke and again I was informed it was a previously known issue. I was also told the hotel wasn't responsible for making this known as they don't own the machines and to get a refund I had to call a number that was supposed to be on the machines themselves, the lady at the desk had to look it up for me which she was not happy with. Upon check out I was informed that there was an unpaid tax that I needed to take care of because yet again they hadn't updated Orbits about the price changes that had been in effect for multiple years.

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 receipt would not have shown that your keys was taken in. Also normally you are given a receipt at check in so we do not give one at check out unless the guest requests one. The next time you are here just ask for one and we will give it to you.
