My wife and I went down to Myrtle beach for a few days early August. We stay at the Reef very often. I know I'm getting an excellent beach front view. We will have full size appliances so we can save by not eating out nightly. We carry our beach chairs and cooler to the beach ( 3 minutes tops... More

My husband and I spent the weekend at the Reef for our 25th Anniversary and we had a wonderful stay. The view of the ocean was absolutely beautiful from the balcony and as I understand it, all rooms are ocean front at the Reef. The room was clean and had everything we needed. We lounged around, walked the beach, soaked... More

The only things nice about the hotel are the view and access to the Beach, also the pools was great. We stayed on the 12th floor in a one Bedroom suite which was very crammed, from the bedroom to the living room area. With barely enough room to to drag your luggage through the front door where the bedroom is... More

They gave us a night for free because we did hold so long... When we arrived it looked alright on the outside but a very tight squeeze parking.. Lobby was... More

We have stayed a lot of places in MB.Stayed here last 2 summers. The staff are very professional and helpful. Love the afternoon DJ by the pool. Great clean pool as well. Rooms are clean. We stayed in 2 bdrm. w/small kitchen. It is an older hotel and could use some updating I guess. I hate to say anything negative... More

I wanted to like this hotel because .... well I just did. I was very disappointed with the arrangements. I had requested a high floor, but I was put into room 308. That was ok because they were booked for the weekend and I knew that I may not have that accommodation met. When we arrived, I was able to... More

Room was clean but outdated. Friendly staff upon arrival. For the price it's ok I suppose. But I'd clearly recommend staying next door at the Grand Atlantic. This is my first and last stay here. I knew I shouldn't have let the woman choose where to stay.

We stayed in a two bedroom oceanfront unit. We really enjoyed the rooms and the view. It has been a few years since we'd stayed at the Reef, and the prices were still reasonable. The lobby is simply beautiful, and the front desk staff were super helpful and courteous to us. One piece of advice to help this hotel get... More
