This was my second 8 night stay at Ellington this summer, both times in a 2nd floor 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Phase I. I was traveling with my aunt and 83 year-old father. Everything was wonderful, from check-in to check-out. We arrived late in the evening and Tony (from the maintenance department) stopped and graciously toted our mega... More

Our family stayed here for our summer vacation. Our unit was well maintained and clean when we checked in. The staff were nice for the most part though the front desk staff seemed a bit irritated when my husband wanted to book a 2nd day of golf. The pools were nice and never too crowded or too rowdy to enjoy.... More

We have been owners for seven years. Initially it was just as promised, but as the years have gone by we have become completely disillusioned with the facility and this year finally took the cake. We did not take the option of repurchasing our own unit to become a "points" member so we have been banished to the projects or... More

I stayed at this resort on a family vacation. Our ages ranged from 70 something down to 13. Everyone in our group really enjoyed their stay here. We stayed on the "premium" side of the resort and the rooms were lovely. We had 2 bedrooms and 2 and 1/2 baths. In both of the full size bathrooms were large jetted... More

We traded our Hyatt timeshare in Key West for a week in Murrell's Inlet. We were given a one bedroom in the older section of the hotel. Our room was clean, comfortable with all the amenities needed. However, we were never offered clean towels or if we needed a maid to freshen our linens. We attended the timeshare presentation. This... More

Bedroom is nice however the king size bed takes up a lot of space. The Tv in the bedroom is old but... More

I travel all over the world and I can say without hesitation that Jeremy has been one for the most helpful managers I have ever dealt with. He has an answer to all of our questions and a quick response for all of our concerns. I would have a hard time referring my close friends to this location if Jeremy... More

I went with a group of ladies for the weekend and we had a wonderful time! We stayed in 3 separate condos which were nicely furnished. I love to cook and was happy to see that the kitchen was fully equipped. All of the staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating to our needs. The pool and hot tub were... More

Our unit was small, darkly furnished, the dishwasher did not work and there was very little storage. The bathroom had one towel rack and no hooks for towels. Considering it is located at the beach I found that incredible. I did get to see another unit which was much bigger and that would have made all the difference.
