We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The beds were comfortable and the room, although "worn," was clean. We had a room overlooking the street and it did get a little noisy with people passing by. You could not hear anything from adjoining rooms because this hotel is made out of cement. It is within walking distance of the... More

We drove down from Washington with our two dogs and wanted a hotel close to the beach that didn't break our wallets. We took a chance on this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The room was HUGE, the bed was comfortable (King), the shower was also HUGE, and the ambiance was nice. There were only two downsides. The room was... More

A great place to get a night's sleep. Staff very nice, rooms clean, yes, even the bathroom. The bathroom and carpet has been recently updated so felt good walking barefoot. A short walk to the beach and a short drive to downtown. I'd stay agin for sure

Quite costly for what is on offer and had to pay extra for bike hire at the Lodge, when at previous Hotels bikes are free to use. Noisy fridge, although staff provided ear plugs. Breakfast was ok, some fruit as an option would have been nice. Room was clean. Staff seemed quite strict.

Ocean Pacific was our first stop after a long airplane drive. Stephanie kindly checked us in and started our vacation off on the right food. She sent us off on the West Cliff Walk/Drive (we walked) which gave us a view of the ocean and allowed us to stretch our legs. Beautiful in the evening and in the morning. She... More

Found this on a travel website and wasn't sure what to expect. But wow! This is more than a hotel, its more of a boutique type hotel inside the rooms. The rooms were beautiful and clean! The beds were incredibly comfy with super soft sheets! We walked a few blocks to the pier. We loved this place! I wanted to... More

The date to this review is wrong. We haven't stayed here in awhile but anytime my husband and I visit SC we always stay here. We found this hotel while we were dating and it's been a memory to us lol. We love the jetted tub in the room, the rooms clean, it's not far from downtown and the boardwalk.... More

My family stayed here during summer vacation for 3 nights. I can't say enough good things about this place. Great friendly staff, great heated pool and 2 hot tubs. The rooms are super clean. But by far the best thing is the location. Just a few blocks from the beach, wharf and boardwalk. Super easy to get to and easy... More
