I like the location, Close to the Boardwalk. (walkable) The room was nice. However we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. From what I can tell the standard rooms are not as nice. Parking was fine. (across the street) We were there the week after Labor Day so it was not that crowded. If you can get a good price,... More

Okay if you are looking for a 5 star hotel keep on looking. This hotel is in serious need of a major renovation!! It is very old and tired looking, the ice machine in the main part of the hotel did not work, the hot tub was also not working. Our room was clean but the house keeper left no... More

This was by far the worst place we have ever stayed in Myrtle Beach!! The first room we got had such a terrible smell that we had to be moved to another room. That one smelled better but had lots of other issues...air conditioner didn't work properly, fridge made noise all the time, toilet did not want to flush, roaches,... More

We got a $29 deal on bookit.com. Had we paid anymore, I would have asked for a refund. Our balcony door was broke so it didn't shut. The carpet was pulling up in the middle of the floor. There were hair balls floating in the hot tub. Also, the loudest thing in the building was the elevator. Every time it... More

I was very skeptical about staying here. I read some of the reviews but I made my decision based off the pictures, glad I did. The lobby looks updated and inviting. The staff were very friendly. When you check in they give you a nice welcome package full of coupons and guides. That got me excited about my stay. I... More

Stayed in the waves building and the 360 degree lighting by the pool has the ambiance of spending the night in Leavenworth. First room (319) is less than 8 feet away from one of those artificial suns making it impossible to use balcony after sunset, unless you wear sunglasses at midnight to avoid squinting. had to threaten to leave(after 2...

I leave detailed reviews, so be prepared! We found a VERY good rate ($29.00 on bookit.com) and decided to book the room, even though it didn't totally meet our normal standards when we travel. We got into town around 10 AM and around 11 AM, decided to stop by to confirm check-in times. My first "greeting" from the staff was... More

Room was run down. Blood on sheets on one bed. Smelled mildewed in room. Not a good atmosphere. Staff was very polite and refunded our money. They offered us another room in the older section. Didn't want to take a chance with an even older room when the newer section was bad.
