Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely LOVE Myrtle Beach & never complain about the place that is like my second home, so with that being said......I DO NOT recommend THE REEF HOTEL!!!!!! Sure it's nice & the price was right, but after the hateful, careless disrespectful way we were treated the night we arrived I won't even attempt to... More

Now the elevators might be slow but the service is really great. We're allowed to check in early with no hassle. The room were very clean and they have an excellent restaurant on site that cater to you with outstanding hours. This is my second time i had stayed at the Reef and both time i had outstanding hospitality. Will... More

Although the building was in need of some updating and cosmetic attention, we had a great room overlooking the pool and the Atlantic. It was very convenient to the main entrance and the elevator. The staff and management at The Reef were VERY hospitable and accommodating. To be in an oceanfront resort in Myrtle Beach, we found the prices to... More

My family had stayed at the Reef 3 years ago and the 2 years before that and we loved it! We stayed there in July of this year and was so disappointed. We had to call the manager when we first got in our room. The table had cool aid rings on it and the couch had white stains and... More

My family has stayed here for years and have always loved The Reef, but after our recent visit, this will be the last time. The hotel is very out dated and in need of maintenance. The room itself was ok-- it was clean for the most part. There was a terrible musky/moldy odor in the room, which seemed to get... More

We booked our room over a month in advance and requested a higher floor. We were in communication with the hotel before arrival and were told to mention our request at check in. When we got there, Phillip (whom was very lacking in customer service) says we are on the next floor up and every room is booked. Bummed but... More

If you have read more than one review on the Reef you know it is not a new hotel by any means. The Reef was standing and in business when I was 8 years old, but the place I stayed as a kid was destroyed by a Hurricane so for trips to Myrtle Beach the Reef has been my go... More

The only nice thing about this hotel was that it was ocean front. The room was dirty, the bathroom was small, the manager, not sure her name, was very rude to us while we were waiting to check in. Told us we were making the hotel look trashy because we were lounging on the couch in the lobby. The sliding... More

bedspreads were old, carpets not clean, kitchen cabinets greasy on the outside, tub didn't drain well, wouldn't allow Family to sit on sofa or chair until they were covered with clean sheets. Air conditioner worked Great. Layout of the room was great. When I entered the Lobby I was very pleased and expected the rooms would be nice also. Pool... More
