4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach. We really liked the hotel. The hotel room in the North Tower- King bed - was clean and the view magnificent (we were on the 12th floor). The grounds were clean and scenery attractive. The swimming options were many, but the weather was terrible. It rained and was cold from the moment... More

I am very worried about coming to this Hotel next weekend (10/11/14 - 10/19/24). This is going to be a very special event as my son is going to propose to his girlfriend here. He leaves for Afghanistan in November and will not be back until next year. As I read all of the negative remarks regarding dirty rooms and... More

Stayed there three nights. Great location but this resort has seen it's prime. Found a large roach/beetle on the floor by the door one morning. Removed it but did not notify the desk to request spraying for insects.Parking is great with the garage abutting the he Tower. Had a maintenance problem which was resolved promptly.

First time to stay here. Has a north,south and windam towers. No inside pools, just some under part of roofs. Room smelled some, icebox door had rust on it, nasty looking, could hear people snoring in room next door. Floors had crumbs on the rug. Grounds around the place were nice. You had to go outside to get to pools.

We have stayed at the Sea Watch each Sept since 2007. We have always been very pleased with our accomodations until this year. This year we were very disappointed with our room and service. We rented a one bedroom unit with a king size bed in the north towel. There were a number of small issues which when summed up... More

I stayed there two nights Sept19-21 we told them we had roaches they came and sprayed the room twice but couldn't move us. They only offered us breakfast but who would want to eat there. We stayed out the rooms all day and left as soon as day break to get away from room 1107 in the north tower

I am a big fan of reviews and before coming did a lot of looking. Took the tips and looked at the room first, went with it but later found out that this dated room is not their best. Check in slow with one person, asked why and was told there are more people here but they are busy. Asked... More

Registration is in the North Tower. We waited at least 20 minutes to check in, as only one of the 4 registers was open. The attendant wore a stained shirt and was chewing gum - not a promising start to our vacation. The units here have different ownership, so maybe we just got a lemon, but we definitely expected better.... More

Great time at the beach. Near to everything we wanted to do. Plenty of walking area. Near pier And was very restful for my husband. He is having brain surgery in Octobe. This was our vacation to relax before surgery. Thanks to everyone for all their kindness.

Second time at sea watch; looked at different options, but found they offered the best "deal" for what we were looking for in a vacation at the beach. The room was as we remembered from last year. I don't see it mentioned much in reviews, but I think it's important to note you enter the room from an outside hallway,... More
