Upon arrival we had to buy air fresheners and cleaning products to clean the molds in the bathroom. Kitchen floor and carpets were disgusting. It took me an hour to clean everything. Even if our reservation was for 5 people, we received only 3 towel kits, had to ask them everyday for more. Parking is a nightmare, shared with Best... More

We reserved our hotel online and upon arrival we found very little parking. Our room had a very strong stench, 2 inches of dust on the ceiling fan and on the a/c unit, and mold in the bathroom above the shower, the shower curtain was filthy, had previous tenants hair on the walls. The pools were freezing and people stayed... More

This was our second visit to the Viking Motel this year. The room ( Oceanfront 2 room suite, 5th floor ) was very clean, as was the bath and kitchen area. The cookware, flatware and dishes were all stored nicely and were clean as well. And the view from the oceanfront balcony was spectacular !! The beds were comfortable and... More

First run-in was with the front desk when calling about the pet policy. Desk informed me that a crate was necessary for the animal yet there is nothing about this on the policy or anywhere on their website to see before you book. I was told that if I would have checked in without a crate my reservation would have... More

The hotel was dirty and smelled bad. While we were in the room, I wondered how dirty the filters were in the air conditioners. Both the sidewalks and rooms were filthy. Soap doesn't cost so much and cleaning the property would have helped loads. The steps in the office had carpet falling apart on each riser. The lights between the... More

We just stayed for one night and I am glad it was not longer. The pool is nice and the location is awesome. The room was old and worn down. The appliances in the kitchen where old and nasty. I would not have used that coffee maker, but the refrigerator was ok. The ac unit was not cleaned in ages... More

Ya get what ya pay for. We were only staying one night in myrtle beach so this one would do. The beds were comfy and clean. Pillows were soft and comfy too. Checked for sand and bedbugs and there was none. Carpet was clean. Towels were small and rough but there were enough of them for three of us. The... More

You get what you pay for at this motel. I should have listened to the other reviews before booking this room! The location is okay, but the room was in need of some major work. The worst thing for me was the smell which was a mixture of wet carpet, cigarettes, and pet odor. We had to go buy air... More
