Our first visit to Marina Inn for a Conference and very impressed with the Quality and stab=ndard of thr Hotel. Rooms excellent, staff attentive helpful and good, and being on the water and overlooking a golf course the outlook was lovely. And far removed from so much of the tackiness of Myrtle Beach But Marina Inn is badly let down... More

This is a very nice hotel. I was there for a conference and everyone from the time we pulled up to the front to register were extremely nice and helpful. The balcony had a very nice view of the marina and the pool.

The Grande Dunes Marina Hotel was the site of a conference that I attended. The staff was excellent and food was very good. The facility was quiet and it was so nice to be on the inland waterway away from the beach crowd. Highly recommend for a conference or a vacation.

I stayed at the Marina Inn for a weekend-long convention. As other reviewers have said, the rooms are beautifully appointed and VERY large. The valet and bell staff were incredibly professional and very nice. I would highly recommend the Marina Inn for conferences and meetings. The pre-function area was perfect for our cocktail reception and breakfast buffets. I was very... More

Our second time here and would definitely return. Everything is set up very comfortably. Our association met over the weekend. Meeting rooms were comfortable and coffee, etc was available and accessible. Staff always friendly and accommodating. Rooms were large and user friendly. Everything clean. Prices quite reasonable.

This is aluxury resort that sits about 10 minutes from the beach. My first impressions were that they overestimated the demand for luxury when they built the hotel in conjunction with the residences at Grand Dunes. I was upgraded to a rediculously large suite when my room wasn't ready 30 minites past check in time. Granite counter tops two beautiful... More

My family surprised me with a weekend getaway for my 30th birthday at this beautiful resort. It was classy, but yet down to earth for having your kids there. Everything that you could think of needing was already in the room, or just a phone call away. It was close to everything that we wanted to visit as well. I... More

My family and I recently booked the 4-bedroom penthouse and it was fantastic. The suite was comfortable, clean and an excellent place for everyone to just be together. The balconies off of the rooms and the main area had beautiful views. Having a bathroom for each room was key as well!
