Don't do it. Even if they offer you a room free of charge, don't do it. I have traveled for over 40 years, and yes I have seen some dumps but never been in any thing like this. The pool area had loud music almost all night. There were many x rated activities in plain sight. The manager did nothing.... More

I want to be fair in my review so let me say that the Patel's were super nice. The location is wonderful. Its far enough from the heavy traffic and loud tourist areas but close enough to get to what you need. The proximity to the beach was great. The outside of the property looks nice. However, those online photo's... More

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
