1) bugs in condo, kept food bagged/wrapped and in microwave to keep bugs out. 2) stove was disgustingly nasty. The pans under each eye had several layers of crusted, dried food or filth of some sort built up.....had a greenish hue to it so didn't want to get too close. 3) carpet nasty with stains everywhere 4) buckets in laundry...

I believe all the harsh reviews are coming from people renting through Water's Edge Resort. These are individually owned condos and you can rent very nice ones from the actual owner's via VRBO.com. I stay in 1109 and it is a beautiful and very clean condo. Suits me that these folks don't want to come back, less crowded and more... More

We walked into our room and then left. There is no way I could stay there. It smelled and also had 2 dehumidifiers in the rooms, the outdated wallpaper was peeling. It was just horrible. The paper was turning yellow and the rooms were dirty. We asked for a king size bed and it was only a double. The lobby... More

I am not one to write reviews about anything.. I will keep my opinions to myself and I will take what others have written with a grain of salt. However, if you are thinking of staying here, please be aware of a few things. We recently spent 8 days in Myrtle beach and decided to stay one more night. Our... More

I have stayed here numerous times and have read the reviews for here. I thinks some are very harsh. I have stayed 1510 and I have also stayed in the room the lady talks about on the first floor and it was nicely decorated. Lets face it a lot of beach themes are blue. The best views are 3 floor...

What a horrible experience.....Hard to choose where to begin. First of all, the website said there had been a millon dollar renovation of the pools and the elevators. What a joke! The pools were drained and were being repaired...this was not on the website. So no pools for my grandsons, who were so looking forward to swimming in an indoor... More

We really enjoy the Water's Edge. We have stayed here 5 years now, 4 years in one-bedroom units and 1 year we took another couple and rented a 2-bedroom. The property is directly ocean front. No road or any other barrier between you and the lovely beach. In past years, the water at high tide came up right to the... More

We would never stay here again. It is the dirtiest establishment I have ever stayed in in my entire life! Wish I could say it was just my unit, but we rented FIVE and each was equally nasty. It is a disgrace ...the brochures and advertisements in no way live up to the quality...there is no quality, nor was it... More
