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

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Vegas travelling down the Coast. Nice hotel very central within walking distance of the pier, the hotel was full otherwise we would have stayed a second night. Staff were friendly and there is a lovely pool

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

This motel was so much better than expected! Super clean, friendly staff, excellent breakfast! We will definitely be staying here again. Perfect for traveling with kids. We walked to the beach, wharf, boardwalk and downtown. Bonus, parking is free! Only negatives I have is the in room fridge and the a/c unit were noisy, but I'm a super light sleeper.... More

Very close to the beach, within walking distance. Room was large, very clean and recently updated. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and nicely presented. Great value as many places that were not half as nice were more expensive. I will definately stay here again!

I stayed at the Ocean Pacific Lodge for 10 nights whilst working in the area and wanted a base just to sleep and nothing more. The area can be very expensive for accommodation and based on other reviews and the price I plumped for this motel. On arriving the receptionist was very friendly and warm. Booking in was hassle free,... More

We have been here almost one week. Great location, close to wharf, walking distance, and a very short drive to other areas. Very clean and friendly. Continental breakfast was basic, but good. Kept very clean. Highly recommend!
