Don't get me wrong, my family and I look forward to staying at the Island Vista. In fact this was our 4th time staying there. Unfortunately, the place is showing it;s age. The carpets need to be replaced, the room we had 806, had a cracked toilet and the closet doors in the bedroom my kids stayed in kept falling... More

I was there from August 9th through 14th 2014, for a week of vacation with my family. It was Excellent and a nice place to stay its clean, and comfortable. They are in a lovely spot on the beach, and it is a bit more private than being so close to the other Hotels on the Beach. The staff there... More

My husband has his yearly meetings here. We have about 40-60 attendees. Everyone loves it. All rooms are suites. Great for families or couples. Suites are 1-4 bedroom. I work with Sheila Suhrer, & Kathy Davis. They are the greatest! Our attendees, mostly males for mtgs, can be difficult. Kathy & Sheila take care if any problems or concerns as... More

If I were to ever go to Myrtle Beach, I would stay at the Island Vista again based on the positives of this hotel and the exterior view of the other hotels in the area. We checked in after 5pm and didn't have any issues. I like how they have a free DVD rental in the lobby for the kids,... More

Having never stayed here before, I booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. If you are looking to relax in peace, then this is the place to stay. The beach was quiet, calm, and clean. The indoor and outdoor pool areas were the perfect way to unwind after a busy morning. The parking is a... More

Check-in was uneventful...literally. The clerk basically checked us in - did not ask if my family and I had stayed at the hotel before and definitely did not go over the layout of the resort. I reserved a 2 bedroom grand suite...high floor and away from the elevator....I am a light sleeper. The suite was on the 9th floor, near... More

Thank you for expressing your views on Trip Advisor. I have a friend who operates a very successful restaurant here in town, and though rare, someone might have an issue with a menu item in one form or another. His policy is to take a personal interest in the problem and find the immediate remedy, and this level of customer... More

Upon arriving at the hotel, I was a little worried when I approached the front entrance (I thought it was a side-door but it wasn't). It lacked any grandeur whatsoever. If this is the first impression, it is not a good one. The glass doors were dirty & needed to be cleaned. The lobby was warm, no a/c. I commented... More

Thank you for expressing yourself on Trip Advisor. The three months of summer in Myrtle Beach are indeed different in many ways… we are very busy! Our front entrance (the one facing Ocean Boulevard) is glass… the interior doors are automatic, but the exterior doors are manually opened and as such, are cleaned almost hourly. Our oceanfront entrance doors (the... More

I was very excited to stay at this hotel. Good locations and the building and rooms looked great on the web. Unfortunately the experience you get when you check in is completely different. First, when you check in expect to wait to at least 5:00 or 6:00. The lobby is very small and crowded and the front desk staff are... More

Thank you for choosing the Island Vista as your host in Myrtle Beach… it appears that you are from Myrtle Beach, and we take that as quite a compliment from someone who knows the area!
