I have been staying at Sands Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach for the last five years. I love the location and the view of the ocean is magical. The prices are always great even in the peak summer season and if you love to golf the off season rates are fantastic. Now they are tied into the best course I... More

Stayed here in late July and as I stated then, outside of the room was great but our issues were inside the room. Not this time. Great stay in a lovely room. The room seemingly had recently been renovated and was beautiful. The leather couch, mirrored walls, flat screen tvs, new dining room decor and the kitchen all were first... More

I'm not snobbish about the places I stay (you can see my prior reviews) but this place was not at all what I expected when I booked a "condo". I guess it's semantics and a little bit of deceitful presentation, I expect when I rent a beach side , beach view condo, I was expecting a ground level place. I... More

Thank you for your review. Yes, during the off season we tend to do renovations and repairs. We apologize if you were not happy with your accommodations.

This place was a dump We had an ocean view suite, upon walking in you first saw the the kitchen cabinets falling off the hinges the stove covered in rust and crud. The bed mattress was old and on a downward slant. When you sat on the bed you got springs up your butt. The t.v was from the 70s... More

We got a two bedroom oceanfront suite on the 10th floor. Very pretty view; pretty down-at-the-heels room. Tired decor, hard bed, moldy bathtub, dripping faucet, toenail clippings in the carper--no, not making that up. I could have lived with all that for the view and the ocean BUT: the Ocean Annie bar band was so loud I felt like it... More

Those who have stayed at the Sands Ocean Club know that the rooms are at best-- adequate. But if you are going to Myrtle Beach there are two things to do-play golf and Ocean Annie's. Ocean Annie's speaks for itself as being the best beach bar on the East Coast. You can smoke cigars, have a drink, listen to some... More

I had stayed in this property before, but it had been over 10 yrs ago. A few changes, such as upgrades to the public areas, some of which were very nice. They have a River City Café in the hotel now, Ocean Annie's is still one of the best beach bars around, plus they have a nicer indoor lounge. The... More
