I visited this hotel this past weekend and was disappointed. The hotel needs lots of upgrades and better amenities. The rooms are very outdated as was much of the hotel decor. The only modern furnishing was a flat screen TV. The elevators need work and modernization. I had to have my room upgraded twice. I entered the first room I... More

18th floor south of Tower had some issues with elevators and bugs. Also needed lots of work on the interior furnishings. Could have used pots and pans that were easy to use and more modern. The ones we had we're limited. Pool and beach access good breakfast too salty overall worth of few dollars to go and stay. Parking and... More

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this hotel so I don't understand why the negative feedback! It was clean, close to the beach and fun as well as affordable! We would gladly stay here again. The free amenities like water park & amusement park tix were a bonus!

For the cost, we were expecting a bit more with this "resort". The common areas of this place are in serious need of update and maintenance. The room served its purpose, but we did not spend a lot of time there. Most of the vacation was spent at area attractions. While we didn't have a bad experience, we'll likely shop... More

We switched rooms because the first room they gave us upon check in hadn't been cleaned from the last group of customers. Our next room was better but still a far cry from what you would expect from an ocean side resort. We found things like clumps of human hair on the bathroom floor and the ceiling paint was peeling.... More

We have been going there for years. We book a condo at APAB VI for a week. They only rent from Saturday to Saturday, but we like to add 2 days on to our vacation and stay at sands ocean club. That way we avoid all of the Saturday traffic coming in and out of Myrtle. We book a room... More

My wife and I like to stay here because of its location. It's pretty much in the middle of the beach. The rooms are outdated. They are clean though. But we don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room anyway. For the condition of the rooms, it is a little over priced. The staff is friendly and... More

I would not go back to this hotel. Very overpriced! Had problems with the staff at check-in, housekeeping, and the lock on the room! Not worth the price that they charged. The room was not very clean, beds were lumpy and uncomfortable. The best part, that was worth the price, was the breakfast buffet at Windows Restaurant. Staff there was... More

Upon check in the staff was helpful. They helped bring up the luggage and bring it into the room. The doorway was super narrow. When we got I to the room it was very dated. For the amount of mo ey that these places charge per night to be on the water it sure would be nice of they did... More
