IWe enjoyed every minute of this. I liked the location, a stone's throw from the ocean. Our room was cozy and we felt right at home. Here is the coolest pool! Thanks to all staff for a good holiday!

I stayed at the wave rider for my first time last week. I had high expectations because of the great reviews and beautiful pictures I saw online. When we arrived, we were immediately disappointed. The rooms do not look as nice as they do online. We had to go through two different rooms to finally find one that was decent.... More

I will never forget my stay at the Wave Rider Resort. This is a very good motel in Myrtle Beach with the Best Service. It’s not expensive (I daresay a cheap one), but you will enjoy it like it was an expensive one. Everyone is so very friendly and they are absolutely the best. Everyone from Front Desk to Bell...

I think my title says it all. It's the only hotel for me in Myrtle Beach now, and I've tried plenty! From the housekeeping staff to the front desk - all is A+. The location, cleanliness & friendliness can't be beat - and of course the hotel itself is beautiful. Good beds - sound sleep! Stay there - you won't... More

It had been two weeks and I still didn't received it so I called back. They were rude and told me that I had not made the deposit. I had to get a... More
