So, my family of four stayed here for our summer vacation... me, my wife, and two teenage daughters. We swore off myrtle Beach in the past due to the crowds but we were enticed by the 40% off deal from the crown reef website. Normally we go to a more secluded beach in NC, but I didn't want the kids... More

If you are looking for a beach haven, where you can sleep to the intoxicating and relaxing sound of the ocean, and wake up to the refreshing sensation of ocean breezes blowing into your room...it's all about the Crown Reef on the Grand Strand! But staying at the Crown Reef is about SO MUCH MORE than the fact that they... More

My family I arrived at the resort last Sunday 7/19 and we only lasted one night out of our 7 night stay. We couldn't get out of there quick enough! We travel quite a bit and this hotel was by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed at! The hotel was filthy, chaotic, run down and infested with bugs!... More

We stayed on the beach with a ocean front view, double queen with a kitchen. There are 3 large towers (11 stories each) with a coffee and snack area, and a pizza, sub sandwich shop on the 2nd floor for lunch's. The rooms are not fancy but nice and clean, and the staff was very helpful. Our room had 2... More

We enjoyed our weekend here. Met a really nice staff person by the name of Joy at the Loko Geko Beach Bar. She gave us ideas of fun things to do during our stay and make for a fun time. Hope to come back soon.

The best part of this vacation was the waitress name Dara. She was the best. So friendly and went out of her way to make you fill welcome.other then that I will never stay here again. House cleaning was very bad.The head of housecleaning helped us take care of the problems. Thanks to her also.

Me and my family enjoyed a good week vacation at Crown Reef Resort. Very nice and very clean. I was extremely pleased with housekeeping. The only complaints that I have are the elevators and the ice machines. The elevators were either extremely slow or didn't work at all and I couldn't find an ice machine on any of the floors...

My family and I just left there this past week. It was an OK room, but there was a lot of flaws. The bathroom light did not work, mold was all over bath tub, there was no pressure to the shower head, it took me 30 minutes to get all of shampoo out of my child's hair, we had to... More

Check in was suppose to be at 4, we finally got to our room at 6, the foyers were filthy with cigarette butts and I watched housekeeping stop and look at them and then walked off, they were still there all week long. After housekeeping supposedly cleaned our room, they left dirty water in the bath tub, when we arrived... More

This is a review of the Crown Reef resort in Myrtle Beach SC for the week of July 19, 2015. I was there with a large group of 14-year-old kids and their parents for national athletic event. We had read the reviews and were definitely skeptical of what we might encounter. Our primary concern was bedbug infestation. It is ironic... More
