Our condo was dated and very old. Not very clean either. On the plus side most condos have a view of the beach and we got free lunch there every day during our stay. The evenings were noisy with firecrackers and beach goers so I don't recommend this location if you have young kids. We will most likely go further... More

Older hotel with a lot of perks. Pool, lazy river, resurant, gift shop and such. Front desk staff were super nice and very helpful. I think it was "Jessica" who helped us. Cute little blonde girl with a very sweet attitude. Actually still here. Lol (7-2-15) Do yourself a favor and rent the better room. They vary greatly here.

I just returned from the Sands Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. Three friends and I stayed in a traditional efficiency oceanfront room (208). It was perfect for what we needed. It was clean, had a great view of the pool area and ocean, and was large enough to hold the four of us. The kitchenette included a small fridge, coffee... More

Booked here through a local baseball tournament - this hotel is not for families or people who like things clean - so outdated, so dirty, so gross. My room was filthy, smelled like smoke and urine. Other team families were just as gross, mirrors duct taped onto the wall, broken this, broken that. Just dirty. We all checked out immediately,... More

The location is great..Right on the ocean, a pool, very cool Ocean Annies beach bar with live music, but the hotel is a dump! I stayed there last year and thought it must be just the one condo we stayed in. So I reluctantly went back for a friends weekend and it was absolutley awful. The condos are very old... More

We picked this hotel because it was near to where the rest of our family was staying and was cheap. Check in was fairly quicky, parking is in the garage next to the hotel, it fills up quickly at night and hard to find a spot. (-) We were on the 5th floor and the entire hallway area smelled like...

Nice location on beach.nasty rooms.old carpet...very outdated...looks like cheap hotel inside. Outside nice...live music daily.so if booking you have to decide what's important to you. Parking a nightmare....not enough elevators in hotel...staff friendly.

First of all this was a trip I won from a local radio station. It was supposed to be for 3 nights & 4 days. After I had seen all the negative reviews online I called the station & was told it was a great place & other people had been sent there & they loved it. There is a... More

My wife and I have gone to this hotel with another couple twice so far. Once we got adjoining rooms, and once we shared a larger room. Both times the rooms were pretty clean looking, but dirty feeling. Everything just seems to feel like it didn't quite dry out well. The floors have cheap carpeting, and paint was peeling on... More

Checking in is the first challenge you face when arriving in the fact that you pull into a pretty narrow street between the hotel and the parking garage and you have to pull over to the right to unload your luggage and other stuff. If it's busy that can take awhile for a spot to open up. Once a spot... More
