Needed a last minute hotel for a marathon my wife was in. Picked up a coupon book at visitor center and for $35.00 per night we found this hotel. The room was comfortable with two beds and a kitchen right on the strip. It was an older hotel but the room we had appeared to have been updated recently. I... More

Had the BEST time at the Wave Rider! I am originally from Myrtle Beach and wanted a nice little getaway from the busy life and that's exactly what I got. The hotel and room was wonderful and the management was very helpful and nice as well. It wasn't very loud either which was nice for a peaceful relaxing couple days.... More

The price was ok but not worth staying here. The room was dirty, smelly and the shower looked like someone died in it. There were tons of cock roaches, the coffee maker, stove and microwave were so gross, so we ended up not using them at all. The bed was so gross that we had to put our own bedding... More

We just returned from our family vacation at Myrtle Beach and stayed at the Wave Rider for 9 days. Our room was nicely decorated and clean. The grounds are nicely kept and the pool is fantastic. Management was very accommodating. Had a very relaxing time. - Chuck R

At the last moment we decided to go to the beach. Checked everywhere and nothing was available. Called the Wave Rider and yes they have a vacancy! Approximately 87 a night; I'll take it! When we arrived you could tell it was an older building but this was a good thing. Today's construction lets you hear your neighbors two doors... More
