I like that the indoor pool is deep, 7-8 feet. The hot tubs were nice. We are already planning to return to this hotel with my in laws and our... More

The value was great! Elevators were very slow and shower was backed up. Family enjoyed the pool and DJ and games and drinks by the pool. Felt like I was relaxed all weekend. Just wish the place was cleaner but overall very nice, kids loved the game room.

We booked this for a girls weekend, and had no complaints. The rooms were clean, pools were nice, elevators were very quick. We stayed on the 10th floor, so that was very important! Close to all the local attractions. Our stay was very enjoyable

We have been going to Myrtle Beach for 20 years and The Reef is the best value. Rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the view is spectacular. All rooms are ocean front with private balcony. The front desk people are always such a big help with any questions that you have. I would recommend this place without hesitation.
