I'm sure this hotel has some rooms that are awesome and some that haven't been updated or touched since it opened. (I know, I know, it's 31 years old, it's one of the oldest on the strand, blah blah blah) We unfortunately got the latter. It was clean, but we felt very deceived by the photos on their website/other reviews.... More

From the time i walked in i felt like the place was dirty. House keeping didnt clean at all. There was no accommodations, like breakfast. The pool room was not attractive, it look old and worn out. To go in your room after the pool requires you to go outside before you enter your room. Its kinda crappy when the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Reef. Our two room suite does not offer private bedrooms. The two Bedroom Suite does have separate bedrooms with doors. It is a priority to provide excellent service and always with a smile. I am sorry that we did not provide this during your stay. The Reef is... More

This is an older hotel, but the staff were wonderful and the room was very clean and quiet. The hotel is right on the ocean and our room had a great view. The hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool. We did not use them, but we did go look at them and they appeared extremely clean.

Kitchen provided everything need with the exception of a sharp knife but we made do without . Beds are full size and very soft and comfortable . The oceanfront View is beautiful .

Checked in, went to room, came back and checked out. Rented the 2 bedroom, you cannot even open the door all the way to get into the tiny room. The blinds had about 4 inches of dust. Stinks of old cigarette smoke. Very old and run down. This is a party hotel, not for familys.

Dear Jessica B. Thank you for your kind words about the Reef! We are one of the older hotels on the Myrtle Beach strand, but it is our mission to provide clean, comfortable accommodations with an awesome oceanfront view.
