This is probably the absolute worst place to stay in Myrtle Beach. I booked through bookit, and they charged me nearly 200.00 for two nights. I seen the rooms were going for 31.00 a night. The door to the room was open to my arrival. The room smelled like smoke. There was no microwave. There is no breakfast although the... More

My unit was infested with Bed bugs. My new born was bitten as well as my fiancé. The staff was not helpful. The assistant general manager in particular, Kitty was extremely rude, inconsiderate and could careless that my family and I had no where to stay. She treated the matter rather coldly. She ended up leaving for the day as... More

This motel was priced great. However, the rooms were extremely dirty. The sheets were stained and looked slept in. The towels felt like sand paper and when you dried with them they turned black. The rooms were NOT clean upon check in. One of our rooms (we had 3) - had a horrible odor and we discovered it had vomit... More

I read many reviews before booking so I wasn't expecting this motel to be a five star place. The hotel is old but suits the needs for us this week as we came for the beach and the shops, not to stay at a resort. We had a two bedroom ocean view unit. The air conditioner is a window unit... More

Decided to take the 15 yr old granddaughter for a quick beach trip. Spur of the moment, and could not find rooms at places I have visited before in the Myrtle Beach area. After stopping at several motels on the Grand Strand, found a room for 2 nights, with a pool at The Viking. Room was expensive, but suited our... More

We had 6 people so we got the 2 bedroom suite. We came into it last minute and got a good deal but we knew it would not be 5 star. It's older but good view. Elevator worked. Pool was good/clean . Walk to beach perfect few steps. Carpet needs cleaning. Did not have microwave, hair dryer. Kitchen did not... More

This motel is very old and outdated. The staff are average and the facility offers the basics. My trip was for a fishing trip and it served our purpose in that it provided beds for us to sleep and that is all we needed. If I were coming here for a family vacation then I would not recommend this motel.... More

Cheap is what you get! If you are just looking for a cheap place to stay, with no frills I'd recommend the Viking. While our room was exactly what we were told it would be, it was far from comfortable. Our room was beside the hotel next door's pool and the laundry facilities for guests at the hotel. Our first...

We made reservations in May. We arrived at the motel and we were told our reservation for an oceanfront suite had been canceled but lucky for us they had one room available. We go ahead and take the room. BIG MISTAKE! We go to the room and find the door standing wide open. The room is hotter than Hades! We... More
