I wish I had checked out trip advisor before we booked our family vacation this year! My family and I have always stayed at Dunes Village which is one of the most awesome resorts in Myrtle Beach but was wanting to try south instead of north because of the activities offered. I thought I got a great deal staying at... More

Check in on 7/13/14 was a breeze. About 10 families in front of us and we were in and out in less than 15 minutes. Staff was very friendly and provided very helpful information about getting around the resort. The outside of the resort was beautiful especially at night. We stayed in a Queen Jacuzzi suite on the 8th floor... More

Crown Reef was a huge disappointment. Yes, it has an ocean front view, however, the balcony overlooking the beach is very small. When we were on the balcony in the evening there were roaches crawling up the walls of the building, which was very disturbing, and something I would expect from a cheap motel. They stated everything was new and... More

Checking in ACROSS THE STREET took longer than necessary. Only one elevator in Tower 1 was working so getting settled on the 7th floor took longer than expected. Room safe did not work and the refrigerator door was on backwards, with the handles removed. The bathroom light was archaic and maintenance was minimal. The air conditioner leaked horribly and the...

We stayed here for a hubby/wife getaway for the weekend. The rooms were renovated, as indicated in the description of the hotel. Full refrigerator, stove and microwave. We like this properties because most (if not all) rooms offer an ocean front view. while the room was decent, the rest of the grounds externally definietely need some upgrades. The lighting in...

Crown Reef advertises its newly renovated rooms, pool areas, etc. However, nearer to the truth would have been an admission that the renovations were still in progress so don't expect too much! They also take great pride in stating that all of their rooms offer a beachfront view but they fail to mention the view may be blocked out by... More

This hotel is huge. It has three towers. We stayed in tower 2, the center, which I thought was nice. The pools were very nice, The slides were a great addition to the recreation of the hotel, the outside back area was very clean, the beach was very close, just right over the bridge, which was nice when you're packing...

Got a great price online and that was the only thing that was good about this stay. Room was dirty when we arrived and A/C was not working properly. Upon reporting the issues and voicing our dissatisfaction, we were told we could get our cash back and go somewhere else. Management fully aware of what a hassle that would be... More
