This place is nasty. Plain and simple- a disgusting dump. I arrived in myrtle beach at my original chosen hotel only to find my room had been double booked for friday night. The hotel manager called everywhere and the only place he could find after 2 hours of calling was El Dorado. It was over $100 more for 1 night... More

Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Rooms are filthy. The bathroom window was broken and they "fixed" it with scotch tape. None of the drains worked. You had to hold the flush on the toilet for it to work. They also provide dirty dishes, as well as leftover food stuff from the last peope in the room! Then on... More
