We went on a packed week at Myrtle, hotels were 92% full. We had reservations up the road, but the rooms were full of mold. I had been driving all night and the family had a tight fit so we were all ready to unpack. We went up the road to Wayfarer and got a nice 2 bedroom cheaper than... More

On a whim I decided to pass through Myrtle Beach and wanted an affordable room near the beach. I stayed at the illustrious Wayfarer motel for $47 a night. Walking up to the room, I thought there might have been a dead body at the bottom of the pool but it was just a garbage can blown in by the... More

Oh boy here we go ! A friend and I decided to drive down to Myrtle Beach one week end in July 2013. We knew it being a week end it would be hard to get a room. Myrtle Beach needs some serious cleaning out of scum bags running motels. For the past several years, we have had nothing but... More

Got into the room (had to carry all bags up 3 story's). Motel was filth! We had to change bed sheets yourself. The... More

I was staying some where else and wanted to stay in town longer so I choose here in a rush because most other places were sold out so it was last minute. After being in the room for a few minutes I ask for a remote control and was told that the remotes had been stolen. I then ask about... More

Everyone here is very nice. The rooms are ok but the value is high. You can't beat their prices and there isn't a gimmick. $29 is $29. No one bothered us. It is what it is and if you can't handle it pay $300 a night at the Marriott and you'll be fine. Don't knock poor people...they need a place... More

We had no phone in... More
