Stayed in 701.Probably hasn't been renovated in 15 years.Obviously just a check in owners pocket.Balcony is nice and beach here is awesome.Just feel like there are better options either here or in Surfside.

We had never visited the Myrtle Beach/Garden City area and took our two young children for a roadtrip during school vacation. This place is awesome. We all absolutely loved it. There is so much to do in such a short distance, both walking and driving. We took long strolls on the beach and collected many shells. We enjoyed Broadway on... More

We were travelling with several children and rented a two bedroom condo. We planned our vacation at the last minute during summer season. The place was not the worst of the options we had, but it sure could use some improvement. All condo's are beachfront, with a great view of the ocean. It has a pleasant deck with a large... More

The kitchen was spacious with a bar area to sit at kitchen counter plus a dining room table to sit more. There was 2 pull out... More

All the condo's are individually owned and are rented out by different realty companies but the majority of the condo's are rented out by... More

Very narrow small rooms and bathrooms. Great ocean view but small everything. Not as clean as expected hair all over floor in bathroom. Would not put my little toe in any of their pools as they were filthy and finite was all chipped out. Will not stay here again.

We stayed here just for a short time. Yes it was old. Everything in myrtle beach seems old. They had great beach access, oversized ocean front rooms, a bar/pizza place at the hotel. There is an outdoor pool and hot tub, they have an indoor pool, sauna, baby pool and HUGE indoor hot tub. We are considering buying one of... More

Room 304 stunk like sewage or rotten food. Never figured out where it came from. It was clean except sand was on furniture and floor was dirty- couldn't walk barefoot! I had to rinse all glasses cause tasted like dishwasher detergent. Beds were comfortable but sofa pull out bed had no sheets even though we paid for linen service. The... More

We stayed for a week in Room 1201. An end unit, 3-bedroom, 2.5 bath with washer & dryer. We had family staying in rooms 1601 (a very nice 3 bedroom/2.5 bath, and 1507- a 2 bedroom/2 bath). The pros: excellent location, great value, spacious, beautiful beach & views, quieter/family-oriented area. The cons: we knew the units were dated before arriving.... More

We stayed there for 3 nights on a special with a timeshare presentation. The value was AMAZING! I loved that there were 2 bedrooms AND 2 bathrooms, so my 13 year old girls didn't have to keep all their stuff in my bathroom. The balcony view was awesome, and it was wonderful to be able to walk out of the... More
