My best friend and I took this trip to get away from the craziness of everyday life. I was so excited and appreciative to learn upon check in that we were placed in a 2bd/2bath suite. Our stay was on-point and we never even left the resort. A perfect place to relax, unwind, eat and sun :) I will be... More

The management and staff got it right! We have stayed here twice and had a very good experience both times. The accommodations are well appointed and very comfortable. The lobby, grounds and pool area are all very well kept.

Very beautiful resort, everything looked new and clean, staff were friendly. The swimming pool was awesome, the kids had a great time! The location was great, convenient to all restaurants and a grocery store near by. Even though it was not a beachfront resort, the shuttle bus was very convenient, and free cabana and chairs were a plus! The only... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night because my friend had her wedding reception here. We checked in a little early on Saturday. However, our check-in process was quick and courteous. Our room was on the sixth floor I believe. It was beautiful! The balcony view overlooking the marina and courtyard was serene. The room was clean and spacious.... More

Everything about this resort was perfect. Grounds were beautiful. Pool area was fabulous. We ordered lunch and drinks from the friendly waitress. Service was great. Our rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff at check in was pleasant and friendly. I was disappointed because check in time is 4:00 and my rooms weren't ready until 5:30. The buffet breakfast didn't... More

We have been coming to Marina Inn about 4-5 times per year for the last two years. We just spent 8 nights there for vacation and couldn't have been happier with our stay. The hotel always seems to be quiet and the location is great. Room service is very timely and the hotel is always clean and well maintained. Even... More

Location was great, loved the hotel room and grounds and really liked our stay. Two cons about the room were the beds were very firm and old. The living room furniture was worn and needed to be cleaned.

Hi Kellz1967, Thanks for sharing, we're so happy that we could help you out with accommodations at the last minute. Myrtle Beach in season is very busy so you were lucky we had some accommodations for you and your friends. We appreciate your understanding the multiple room moves, with a busy resort and a last minute booking, sometimes we have... More

Brought my family to the Marina Inn for vacation summer of 2015, it is an excellent value! The staff is friendly and amenities offered on-site are great. Plenty to do right at the resort with shuttle to a private beach area that is limited to hotel guests. Free valet parking, great restaraunts in the hotel and also a Ruth's Chris... More

When we pulled up to the hotel our expectations were very high. Looked beautiful. We arrived around 1 in the afternoon and the wedding was at 6 that night. Had to push them to get a room ready for us. Room was nice and spacious but very dated. By the looks from the outside we thought the room would be... More

Hello Derry Q, We're sorry you found our resort to be dated, we are currently working on a room renovation project that involves couch and chair replacement, along with bedding upgrades. We're also sorry you found the beds to be too soft and saggy. We find mattress preference is different guest to guest. Some guests find the mattresses to be... More
