After many hours of searching online for a reasonably priced place to stay for our vacation to Myrtle Beach, we settled on the Wave Rider Resort. Even though there were many many terrible reviews & a few positive ones we decided to give it a try and boy do we regret it! We arrived about 10:15 on Friday night September... More

We came to Myrtle Beach for a short vacation before our kids returned to school. The location of this hotel is very close to the beach which was great. I cant complain about the price because it was affordable, and nice that we could book it with only a deposit and pay the remainder as we checked in. We stayed... More

The room smelled of stale beer, urine and throw up. Toilet was broken and the "kitchen" was a wreck. Asked for a refund, was told no. I was told to go "settle in my room, I'll be fine". My kids didn't feel safe either. Do NOT stay here!!!!
