Convenient to both Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle this hotel is in a good location. The hospitality and rooms were very nice and would stay here again. I think the pools (indoor & outdoor) were small for a hotel of that size and the food was standard, nothing remarkable. I did love the private access on the beach and the... More

Lovely hotel that is located within a short driving distance to all Myrtle Beach attractions; however, it's quiet and peaceful. The hotel itself is very nice and upon arrival hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. I was checked in at 12:15 as per my request. The King deluxe studio felt more like a studio apartment than a hotel room-fireplace,... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at Marina Inn several times over the past six months. Always one who prefers being away from the crowds, I thoroughly enjoy the tranquility and upscale atmosphere. The accommodations and service are the best on the beach. I dined at Waterscapes on my most recent visit and enjoyed one of the best meals... More

Can't think of anything I'd change. .. great location, beautiful grounds/marina, perfect atmosphere, A-1service, well appointed rooms, good food...we loved this hotel. Was our first time visiting Myrtle Beach and booked our room based on TripAdvisor reviews - this is where we'll stay on our next visit - we were so pleased that we wouldn't even consider other options

A very family oriented resort, not necessarily a romantic weekend get-a-way. Approximately 1.5-2 miles from their private beach. We stayed in a hotel room versus a private condo villa and found it to be clean but tired in its decor.

Hi Joe B, Thanks for sharing, we're a little disappointed we weren't able to make a better impression during your visit. Aside from the tired decor, we hope there weren't any other issues you experienced that warranted the 3 star review. Our location is not for everyone, especially those guests who absolutely want an ocean front resort, but as you... More

I still like this hotel but, we stayed in the 2 bedroom suite. Great views, great space but dated furniture. And there was a big stain in the floor. But I am a real reviewer and will go back. Their checking can be slow. But please go to this place. Great

Hi Clipcox2, Thanks for sharing, we're happy your experience was, for the most part, positive. Our resort faces west and does provide great views of the marina, waterway and golf course and when conditions are right, you'll catch some wonderful sunsets. We're appreciate the comments regarding dates furniture. We are working to replace all couches and certain chairs. We hope... More

We were there 5 days, and only went over to the Boardwalk and Broadway at the beach one time, Just to say we went there. Everything we needed was foosteps away at... More

This was used as an overflow hotel, and I think we got the better end of the bargain. Very nice hotel, staff helpful and rooms clean. The only thing I can say bad is I wish the little gift shop / pantry had ice cream instead of just dots...Aside from that wonderful hotel. The inside was very quiet and peaceful.... More

Hi JMHCCHRockin, Thanks for sharing, it sounds like you were in town for business and our resort was an overflow option. We're pleased you feel our resort was an upgrade over the host resort and that we have a wonderful hotel. We hope you'll be able to return for pleasure next time. Thanks again for posting. Mark B.

My stay here as usual was outstanding. Friendly,attentive staff, high end accommodations and decor. Lots of recreation activity near by, and the shopping selection is vast and varied. The valet is always at the ready when I return to the hotel to help with my packages. My home in the Carolina's. Recommended x100!

We spent four nights at the Marina Inn and loved it! The shuttle to the beach was great, pool was clean and the water was warm. Our room was huge and very clean. The location was great- -15 minutes from everything. We would absolutely recommend this Hotel to our family and friends!

Hi Julie, Thanks for sharing, it's so great to see you enjoyed your four night stay so much. During our summer season it's important that the pool, shuttle and beach experience are all operating seamlessly so it's nice read that was the case for you. We're also happy that you found the accommodations to be huge and clean and our... More
