The Reef is a great place to stay. Yes this hotel is old and run down but it is clean. We had some problems with our room when we checked in. They comped us part of our stay for that day since we had a rough first day. The staff is polite and very helpful. If your looking for fancy... More

Excellent is really the only way to describe our experience. The front desk staff is friendly and very helpful, the rooms were clean and very spacious. The place is always clean and very close to so many attractions.

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 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
