The Inn has changed its circus moniker from the (Carnival) name to The Wave. The wife, our 3 year old service Pom pooch and I stayed at The Wave for 3 (rainy & humid) nights during the last week in July 2014. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience for the money. We occupied an "Oceanfront Deluxe Efficiency" on the 5th... More

The room we stayed in could use a little work, ceiling in bathroom leaking a little not enough to really notice & toilet kept running non stop. Main door to room was extremely hard to open, had to get maintenance to open several times as the key would not unlock it. Beds would not stay in place as they were... More

This hotel is an older family run hotel. Every year they do updates to the rooms in some fashion. To my surprise I was put on the 4th floor in one of the completely renovated rooms. It was great. The room is clean, the bed was comfy and the view was awesome! The staff are friendly and a pleasure to... More

This place was clean and nice. I would recommend staying here, you cant beat the price. we will be back. We recommend staying on the 5th floor. Good AC, clean bedding, clean towels, TV, microwave, fridge, stove, ice machine. We had no issues with it being loud. The elevator was a little small and a little slow.

Do not stay anywhere but the 4th floor, which is nicely renovated. 4th floor rooms had a washer/dryer, flat screen TV, etc. We stayed in Room 102. Our room had a dirty tub, rusty fridge, stained comforter, moldy box spring. Our room opened up onto the pool. If you opened our door you had two feet of space before the... More

Very good value....as long as you can get past some very rough edges. If you can put that behind you, this is a very good place to stay. We were on the 4th floor. All rooms face the ocern. You get a view that is equal to hotels three times the cost of what we paid for the room. Our... More

Always our choice at Myrtle Beach! We hate big resorts with there elevators and 100 pools with screaming children. I believe we have stayed here 3 or 4 times and are going back down next week. My husband and I like room 205 the best b/c of the king size bed. But we have had one of the apartments and... More
