We have stayed many times at this resort. It works for us as a family of 3. The particular unit we were in for our stay this past time was very well lit lets say. There were lamps, track lighting and bulbs everywhere. And furniture galore. The space was so packed there was hardly room for people. It was just... More

In reading some of the reviews, I'm not sure what people expect out of a value hotel stay just outside of downtown Myrtle Beach. For the rates, I was thinking the resort was too good to be true. However, the condo unit (1 bedroom, king - Unit No. 1007) was to die for. Ample space in the living, kitchen and... More

All in all this was an awesome place to stay. We stayed in room 1501. Room had a great view of the ocean. Staff was friendly and helpful the only problem we encountered was that check in time had changed to 4 pm instead of 3. We was not notified of this change until I received an email the day... More

The only reason I gave the score rating of 1 is because there's no score lower. The website pictures are decieving, the beach is across the street from the resort, the room was flithy and a total disappointment. Please read cancellation policy careful because you can't get a refund but they do have extra rooms to move you into, a... More

Stayed with friends the weekend of June 26th. Our condo, unit 1802, was absolutely gorgeous---even better than the pictures. Embarrassed to find out from another guest that unit 1803 was not as good, and they were asked to move from 1802 upon our arrival. The owner had warned us new management left things a bit disorganized. Hits: walk across to... More

My Mom and I vacationed here the weekend of June 26th (2015). The woman who checked us treated us as if we had run over her cat.

We love staying at Forest Dunes! We are regulars and always enjoy our stay. We enjoyed the DJ out at the pool. The only complaint we had during this stay was the manager at the front desk could have cared less about the lack of clean towels that were available for the guest.
