Traveled to Myrtle Beach in early April for an Easter vacation with my family and I can't say enough about the Carolinian. The moment we checked I. We knew we had made a good choice, the clerk was extremely nice and helpful and when we inquired about the room view she knew exactly what we would be looking at which... More

Had a short stay with the family during Spring Break. The hotel is going thru a transition from Best Western to Wyndham Vacation Rentals. The best thing about our stay was the free breakfast each morning for the most part. The waffle maker was out one day and it got crowded most mornings. The front desk typically only had one... More

We booked our stay weeks in advance and were given the worst room in this sold-out hotel. We were on the first floor, room 108, by the exit, people were loudly coming and going all night long. My daughter's sheet had a large blood stain. One of the front desk staff, a woman, was sweet and nice the other was... More

We had such a wonderful stay! We were in room #336 which was very close to the elevator, it was perfect and literally 30 seconds from the beach, pool, hot tub and wave pool. The room was beautiful and very modern with a full kitchen, garden tub, and huge wrap around balcony! Free Breakfast everyday on the 2nd floor; waffles,... More

We would recommend to everyone. We were very highly satisfied and will definitely stay here again. Thank you for making our stay so great! Everyone was friendly and the room was very clean. We had a perfect view of the beach. It was our mini honey moon and we loved every second of it!

Elevators were in desperate need of service, reserved an ocean view and could see water if we hung over the balcony, bedside light burnt out, shower would go from scalding hot to freezing cold every couple of minutes no matter what time of day, furnishings were old, and free breakfast was a joke! The room is way too small for... More
