My niece, my great niece and I stayed at this hotel February 18th through the 21st. I have never been so pleased with a hotel or the staff! We did have one issue while we were there and I would like to say that the issue was resolved quickly and we were accommodated completely and the manager "Molly" and staff... More

From the dirty buttons in the elevators to the nasty remotes in the rooms! EWWW! Mold growing along the ceiling and under the outdated wallpaper in the bathroom. Rust on the fixtures in the bathrooms. Hard mattress the floor was softer but the threadbare carpet had huge brown spots (keep your shoes on) and the doors locks barely worked. Stayed... More

Stayed there for a couple of days during the week prior to Valentine's Day Week-End. My wife and I enjoyed the visit.The room was very clean, no problems with it! Staff was excellent. Pool was closed because of the cool weather and the River Run was being cleaned/repaired. Rates were very reasonable. Didn't like the area because so many business... More

My family and I stayed there over Valentines weekend as a family getaway for the holiday. We stayed in the 1 bedroom king ocean view room. The room was clean and there were no roaches or bugs of any kind in the room as previous reviews stated. The king bed felt a little hard/firm for my liking, but the soft... More

My husband found this hotel while researching places to stay in Myrtle for our vacation June 2014. We have been to Myrtle Beach, SC several times before and this was the worst place EVER! When we arrived we waited in line to check in and then had to wait forever to get an elevator to our 1st room. The elevator... More

My husband and I booked this hotel for a short weekend getaway. One of the reasons we booked it was because it featured a bar in the hotel itself. When we got there, the staff said the bar is closed in the off season. We stayed in an ocean-view, king room. It was okay, but very small. The room itself... More

Checked in to this hotel back in fall and never actually spent the night there. The room was dingy and dirty. Some of the lights weren't working and there was mouse droppings on the floor. The deadbolt to our door wouldnt lock and so maintenance came and "fixed" it. However, we werent testing that out, so we slept at a... More

Love it here! The staff is a reflection of its management. Its easy to see why the staff enjoy their jobs here. Dee seems like a fun manager to work for! I spoke to her twice during my staff and no matter how busy it seemed she always had a big smile on her face and was happy and bubbly.... More
