Just came back from a 5 nights stay at the Sandy Beach Resort and had a great time! Definitely try to get a room in the Palmetto building instead of the Magnolia if you can afford it. Palmetto is much newer and nice decor. Also try to request higher floors as the views would be much better! Location is perfect... More

We stayed here for the first time July 4th week. I absolutely loved Sandy Beach!!! We stayed in the new building. It was very, clean and modern. It was roomy compared to other places we have stayed in the past. Even the shower was roomy. The balcony had room to breath on it. Usually the four of us are cramped... More

Selected Myrtle Beach as the destination for the summer road trip vacation. Stayed in the Palmetto addition on the 12th floor in a city/oceanview room. All I can say is NOISY!! The amusement park next door is open late and people are screaming until midnight. The strip is filled with cruisers whose main ambition is to win the ...how loud... More

Right on the beach and pool areas were spacious. We went from the beach to pool every day. Walking distance from a water park, family kingdom, ice cream store and other shops. Rooms were not as clean as I would have liked. Carpet in room Seemed just a bit dingy and the Murphy bed didn't feel fresh or clean. Found... More

The rooms themselves are wonderful. The shower head was too small for me (5'8") so showering was awkward. Sandy beach is located right on the beach, it was nice to be able to walk right out to the beach. The room came with an "ocean view" but it was just a little sliver view of the ocean on one of...

We have been visiting this hotel for 20 years now. We started staying here when it was still The Palmetto, a small single building motel. We had been satisfied with the resort through the years. We even stayed through the years of construction with jack hammers running constantly with little complaint other than the obvious. Recently though, we could see... More

The Sandy Beach Resort is the place to be! I came here with my family for our family reunion July 9-12 and we had a ball. The beds are clean and the bathrooms. They treat you nice and the rooms are very inexpensive. We stayed in the newer part of the building. We'll be back the next year, the next... More

The unloading process is a bit awkward, as there is a very small area with a driving lane going through it - otherwise, our stay at Sandy Beach was quite pleasant. It is just close enough to the city center that you can walk the strip to many shops and restaurants, but it's also far enough to get away. The... More

I just stayed at Sandy Beach Resort this past week and wanted to give my review. This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach. I came with my husband and 2 girls (ages 6 & 15). We stayed in the original building. Unloading was not as convenient in the small loading/unloading area. Check-in was a breeze for us. Not sure... More
