My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights this past week. Our arrival at the hotel we were blown away looking over from highway 17. The outside view is magnificent before u hit the grounds. The waterfall in the parking lot, the beautiful chandeliers, the welcoming of the bell men gives you that great southern hospitality feel. The beautiful... More

That is it. I am in love with this hotel. I don't care if it is not on the beach. The beach is close enough-literally takes maybe 4 minutes with the lights to get there. But I was not here for the beach. I needed a GETAWAY. I am incredibly hard to please, and I assure you-if you are not... More

This hotel has been an amazing addition to the Myrtle Beach scene. We actually stay there twice a year at Christmas and in the summer when visiting family. The rooms are extremely spacious and comfortable. The restaurants are fabulous - I love the fresh toast with bananas foster and the version stuffed with cream cheese and vanilla. Plus it's nice...

Every year I plan a golf trip for my friends and I. After playing at the Grande Dunes last year and seeing the property at Marina Inn I decided I would try to work out a great deal with the resort. I assumed it would be way over our budgets but working with their golf director, Bill Ganz (who has... More

I have stayed at this property several times over the last few years and it had never disappointed me. However, this most recent stay, the week after Labor Day, left me slightly upset. This vacation was supposed to be very slow-paced and relaxing, and in the months leading up to it, all I could envision was spending my days poolside,... More

We knew on arrival we had chosen the right hotel. Good service in parking and reception. Room was big and comfortable. Lots of loungers around the pool, and nice grounds to walk in. Hotel was quiet,no fuss in the the restaurant and bar. 10 min drive to attractions of Myrtle beach. Would definitely stay here again.

Read many reviews and sites calling this a 4 or 5 star accommodation. We expected much, much more. We arrived earlier than anticipated. Bellman/Valet at door was less than friendly but pointed us in the direction for check in. We were greeted by a woman who spoke in a soft but extremely condescending tone and spoke over us whenever we... More
