My fiancé and I stayed here for a week and loved the views and how big the rooms were. Ruth Chris was always delicious, and we always had happy hour drinks at the bar with friendly bartenders. Be warned though not to eat from the bar or from room service, we both got sick every time and stuck to getting... More

Hotel is nice, modern and a decent location. Restaurant and food quality for the price fell way below expectations. Advice, if looking to dine close go to Ducati's or Ruth Chris. Service and staff were below expectations for a four diamond hotel. Management did a good job of rectifying issues that we encountered. Would recommend another hotel since our experience... More

The room (huge) the Balcony (gigantic) and the view of the intercostal and golf course made this place a home-run for Nancy and I. We prepared and had breakfast in the room. Had 2 dinners at the Ruth's Chris next door. Played 2 rounds of great golf. A room this large with full kitchen was first for us. It made... More

Hi there ShimonNst, Thanks for staying with us over spring break this year. New York City is a long drive so we apologize your room was not available at 4pm. We understand how important it is to have rooms ready for the designated check-in time, and that's always our goal. We're happy we were able to extend a courtesy late... More

I recently revisited the Marina Inn back in March of this year for a regional sales rally. This is now my second stay at this resort and I continue to see consistent good quality management and upkeep of this property. My company made arrangements for those attending to share the two bedroom villas, which are really like apartments. Although my... More

Thanks for the positive review BestofCharlotte! We appreciate you're detailed comments giving potential travelers insight into our resort and what we are able to offer. You're correct, even though you were only able to stay one night, our larger suites are definitely ideal for family vacations as they are like apartments and the price point is very reasonable by comparison....

My family and I had a wonderful time at Marina Inn. The rooms were nice and clean. Entire staff was very friendly. Only wish the shuttle to the beach would run a little later than 5 pm. Thank you Marina Inn for the great experience.

We booked a last minute Spring Break vacation at this hotel and we were pleasantly suprised! The hotel is between Restuarant Row and the Broadway at the Beach area of Myrtle Beach. Great location because it is convenient to all the attractions but you are not jammed up in the tight hotel area of the actual beach. The rooms were... More
