I had stayed for a week in July (this month) of 2014. Check in is rather late being at 4 pm. It took half an hour just to get checked in due to slow service in the main lobby (only had one person working). At the check in they gave me a piece of paper saying a bunch of items... More

It took an hour or more check in cause of only one person running the front desk with only one computer. The room had no remote to the t.v. Still had tater chips in the desk. Stains on the comforter and beer bottle tabs in other drawers. Wifi did not work and the ac sounded like a jet taking off... More

Just got back from the worst hotel in Myrtle, don't stay here unless you love the smell of urine in the star well. Place is disgusting, filthy, they didn't clean out room until 6pm and we had to ask them 3 times, they turned our heat on and set it on 80 degrees, I guess they wanted revenge for our... More

For the price you get what you pay for, the room was mediocre. Housekeeping barely cleaned and didn't want to work at all! On check out day we understood there was an 11 o clock check out but we needed some extra time because traveling with a 6 month old and 9 year old with all our stuff for 5... More

We had stayed in this hotel last year and it was alright so we came back this year. Unfortunately it must be under new management because the office cannot handle any issue and you are sent across the road to the other hotel next door. My fiance had been in the pool 30 minutes before his eyes started pouring and... More

The walls were dirty and paint peeling . Got to our room the stove top was dirty. The room stunk like mildew. No phone service in my room... More

OK. I am just done with this place. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt since it was oceanfront and I know you get what you pay for. However, there is no excuse for letting a bunch of screaming and drinking and partying to occur at 12am-4am. Poor management/security. Daily maid service..NOT. Working outlets..NOT.. Chirping smoke detector..... More
