We recently traveled to the Myrtle Beach area over July 4th. This vacation wasn't like our others in the sense that we didn't plan months ahead. We decided sort of last minute to come down to the area and called Ellington to see if there were any openings. We are owners, but unfortunately because of the holiday week, we were... More

My wife and I have traveled a lot but we always love coming home to the Ellington. It's so quiet and away from the busy ways of Myrtle Beach. Staying a week is never long enough. Other than our normal good stay we had to take the time to mention one individual. Whitney at the front desk was impeccable. Always... More

You cannot find a better place to stay for this price! We are staying in a two bdrm/two bath suite, and everyone is happy (ages 11 to 56). We are having such a great time, we booked an additional night. The suite is clean, the beds are comfortable, and everything we could possibly need in the kitchen is furnished. The... More

We have owned a timeshare at Ellington for nearly 10 years and stop there at least once per year. We can only comment on Phase I as we have never stayed in Phase II. Phase I units are available in 1 bedroom efficiency, 2 bedroom/2 bath, or 3 bedroom that includes the one bedroom efficiency lock-out. The condos are spacious... More

Jennifer and Tamara at the front desk was so helpful and made our stay very pleasant. The golf course was in excellent condition and the rooms were perfect for our golf outing. Thank You David W Powell

My husband and I stayed in a 1 bedroom unit at Ellington at Wachesaw for 5 days. We had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable - having a full kitchen was great. It was nice to not have to go out for every meal. The property is in a perfect location for a home base to hit many... More

I have so enjoyed every time I have stayed at this resort, my sons love it, friends that have traveled with me love it and I will always plan to visit here every year. It is quiet, and clean and I feel safe and would recommend any one to visit and see for yourself.

Our "girls getaway group" were pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed our 3 night stay at this property. We had a two bedroom unit in the newer building area on the ground floor in the building right beside the checkin, and behind the indoor pool. Both bedrooms had king beds (the second bedroom actually held two twins that had... More

The overall experience wasn't pleasant, above us the parents let their child run around past 10:00 p.m., the heat/ventilation system annoyingly loud, and the walls between apartments let us hear our neighbors conversations, but the front desk person, Tamra, was very helpful and nice: she helped us get two room changes and cancelled the second day at our request the...
