We chose Crown Reef because of the location (near the pier, away from the busiest area of resorts/beach)and also based on having indoor games, restaurant, water park and pool as the weather would be cool in February.The price was around $450 for 5 nights which seemed good. We drove from Canada and actually arrived several hours early, and tried for... More

Visited in February. Nice hotel price for February (not sure of cost during busy season). Has a lot to offer. PROS: nice breakfast, nice bar, GREAT swimming pool area with more than enought hot tubs, a large pool, a lazy river, and a water park (basically underneath the entire hotel), looks like a nice beach when warmer, also very nice...

Me and my husband stayed there for a week and the price was great but I see why. We were not happy at all. We did not get to spend any time at the pool due to lack of chairs and people putting their towels all over the chairs by 7am and then half the time they sat empty. Do... More

We are here for my Birthday. I was told we would be in tower 3 with a balcony over looking the Waterpark. We were put in tower 2 nowhere near the waterpark. When I called the front desk they told me that tower 3 is closed completely until March 15th. Their idea of a "Waterpark" is a very small kiddie... More

My organization recently held it's annual convention at Crown Reef in Myrtle Beach, and we were so very impressed with their incredible service. This applies mostly to the conference and catering staff, but everyone down to the bartender in the hotel lounge always made the 80 of us feel so welcome. Special thanks to Jackie, Chris, Joanne, Christine and Todd... More

Only 1 old, dirty elevator worked, room was small and dirty, i was attacked by bedbugs, hair and bobby pins on the dirty carpet and no one in my family even wore them, parking was crappy, and housekeeping stood...

This was a very mixed stay. Got a great price for the room and it was advertised as having a great indoor water park. We were so excited for our one bedroom deluxe oceanfront room with a full kitchen. No carts anywhere upon check-in to take luggage up to room, elevators (everything outside) were running SO SLOW and it was... More
