This hotel is in a beautiful location. The room was nicely decorated, clean, and a really nice view. The pools were beautiful. However, I'm not sure if I will ever go back because of these problems. The parking garage is tight...wasn't bad during off season, but I'd hate to be driving in and out of it during peak season. (not... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review… Trip Advisor is most often a tool used by traveling guests to help them choose a quality host, but it can also benefit the host hotel, as has been the case here. Your experience with the door’s lock malfunction was a very isolated one, but it sounds as if you... More

Stayed at this hotel for a few nights and was very impressed! The room was way more than what we were expecting. It had a refrigerator, stove, dish washer, microwave, coffee maker, kitchen sink and a washer and dryer! The staff was very friendly! We would stay at this hotel again if we are ever back in Myrtle Beach again!

My husband, our six children, and myself all really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean and the free DVD rental was a great bonus. The indoor pool area was the best feature, as it gave the older kids a place to splash and play basketball, while the 2 youngest (3 and 1) had a space to wade. I... More

Since there are only residential homes surrounding the hotel, it's not nearly as crowded as other beach-front hotels. Just the opposite! It was my favorite area on the beach. The tiki bar is awesome with great beach food and tasty drinks. The staff is all amazing. Plus, the pools and hot tub areas are classy, comfortable, and spacious.

This hotel is really nice,inside pools as well as the outside pools are very nice. The one two and three bedroom are the best, please avoid renting the standard room. It is like a shoe box, very tight and cramped. Me and my wife were stepping all over each other. Also the restaurant downstairs Has a very good breakfast.

When we arrived, I realized I made a mistake and rented the wrong size room. The Clerk on Duty (Debbie) went to work and saved the vacation. She quickly found another vacant room that met our needs, had us switched, and had housekeeping assure we could move right in. This awesome service has been the norm in every stay we... More

The location is the best thing about this resort and the fact that it isn't surrounded by other hotels and resorts. My family stayed in a 3 bedroom unit during Thanksgiving week. We have stayed in Myrtle dozens of times and thought the furnishings were average but unit was clean. The balcony was very large but sq footage was slightly... More

Thank you for expressing your views on Trip Advisor. We do have a great location here in an old established residential neighborhood… we are the only hotel property in our area and, as such, we are happy to offer the open quieter beach, much less traffic on the streets nearby, and one of Myrtle Beach’s best restaurants on site. Our... More

We planned our vacation in October to go back for our third time and had to call and cancel. Two days before we were to leave, we got a phone call about a family member and had to go immediately to another state. I called the hotel expecting them to repeat the cancellation policy which I was aware of and... More

I can not say enough good things about our stay at this place. This is my 3rd stay and 2nd family reunion. I got 2 four bedrooms and four bath units for my family and it was like being at home, but enjoying the ocean. We love this place and planning another trip there next year. It comfortabile, clean, everything... More
