Our room made Motel 6 look like The Ritz. The ceilings and bathroom are in terrible condition. Can you believe in 2015 that a hotel room has 19" old style TVs? The bottom floor rooms are a hotel and the upper floors are time share condos. I do not know what these looked like. The redeeming factors are that there... More

I stayed at Kingfisher due to a friend offering me a few nights at her timeshare. I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the bedrooms and living areas. Kitchen could be updated, as could the bathrooms. Overall, it was a nice stay because the beach was not crowded since school was back in session. I would stay here again,... More

My only other issue is when I went to look under the bed to make sure I didn't forget anything.....what did I see was... More

I'm surprised at some of the comments I see since we go every year in June and don't "see" what they are complaining about. One was a cold pool in July. It is not heated but we were there in June and it was plenty warm enough. Parking is sparse but adequate. The place is old but clean. I sleep... More

Its right on the beach,next door to the pier and across the street from Sam's Corner and the game rooms. Prices are reasonable for an ocean front room.

We stayed at the Kingfisher Inn regularly more than 30 years ago and always enjoyed its location on the beach and the convenience of the pier right next door. Fast forward to the present - it is now dated and could use a serious face lift. The beds were comfortable and we slept well. We enjoyed the cleanliness of our... More

The Kingfisher delivers what my husband and I want in an October vacation. It is next door-meaning walk next door- to the pier which is the only free walk pier in Myrtle area plus Kingfisher has a special that for $15 two people have a weeks pass to fish from the pier which usually costs $8 per day per person....

This place is the perfect place to stay...affordable clean rooms, big clean pool, right next to the Beach with an ice cream shop on site. Next door is the pier with 2 bars & Live bands at night. It's across the street from several restaraunts, several bars, huge arcade, 2- 3 souvenier shops, large gas powered race car (go-Cart) -track,... More
