4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have stayed here everytime I have vacationed at Myrtle since 1998. It was called the Longview motel then, and has since had some major construction and renovation. I have spent a day or two at other motels before when I decided to leave a few days earlier but have always regretted the places I have stayed and could not... More

We booked a 1 bdr deluxe suite (Palmetto) on a high floor. We were on the 19th floor (the highest one) and we loved it. The views were amazing. The room was clean and very well equiped but it had a fish smell that just wouldn't go away no matter what we did. We also called the front desk but... More

We loved this place! We were bowled over when we entered our suite and even more so when we walked out onto the balcony. The room was very spacious and nicely appointed and the kitchen had everything we needed. The proximity to the beach and Boardwalk was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Like other reviewers... More

My husband and I decided to take our 2 daughters on their first vacation to the beach. And let me say this was my choice because I've stayed here 8 times in 6 years. It was always soo clean and that is my main thing with hotels. Sadly this time when we went I was soooooo disappointed. Almost everything was... More

This was our fourth year at Sandy beach. Each year we stay for two weeks. This year we found that house keeping was improved ( we tipped daily) and the staff was extremely friendly, as usual. We arrived around 12:30pm and were able to check in to our room, even though check in is at 4pm. We love this place... More

Upon arrival and checking in, we proceeded to go to our room. Upon entering the room, we could smell a strong odor of smoke. My nine year old grandson has allergies and was also fighting a sinus infection. We knew there was no way that we could stay in that room. We immediately went back to the front desk. The... More

for the money I paid, I expected a better hotel. One of the pools had scum floating in the corners the whole week we were there. There were definitely some undesirable people by the pool area who were claiming they didn't speak English and were constantly being told to remove their construction bucket filled with beer bottles. People were swimming... More

Hotel staff was very helpful and pleasant. When I called about noisy neighbors late at night they sent someone up right away. Grounds were mostly well kept. Pools were okay. Could use some updating and cleaned out a little more often but overall not bad. We stayed in the Magnolia tower (which is older). The sofa in the living room... More

I don't know where to start. As we arrived everything was easy access, at the front desk people were extremely nice, they answered all our questions, explained every little details. We got suite and it was very clean, couldn't ask any better. Enjoying it very much!
