This place was the most disgusting dump I have ever stayed in and I have traveled A LOT!!! The room stunk to high hell with humidity, smoke, and old!! The carpet wasn't clean (sand and salt in the carpet), the linoleum was grimy, the sink drained very very slowly, the beds and bedding were old and yuck, the tv was... More

I decided to ride down to the beach on the spur of the moment, for a little rest and relaxation. I will never again get a room without reading the reviews. The first thing I noticed when I opened the door to the room was the stale urine smell, luckily I had a scented candle which helped a little. Next... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. In the description of the hotel on booking.com it says no animals allowed but when we got there all kinds of people had animals. When we got to our room it smelled like cat urine so bad we couldn't stand to be in the room. We had to leave and go to... More

Room was reverse of what we booked - they had 1 bed in living room and 2 beds in back room - put a kink in the plans with teens. Room was musty and smelled of cigarettes. A/C vents did not work and blew from back bedroom forward so one room froze while front room sweated. You get what you... More

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
