I don't normally do reviews on here but I thought this one warranted it. I made reservations on travelocity and even with my reservations it took over one hour for them to get me checked in. The staff was very friendly and I truly hate giving a bad review BUT between the incredibly long wait for check in and them... More

Reading the plethora of reviews on tripadvisor, I was literally terrified to know what we were getting into when my friend booked the hotel. If your expectations are realistic and you are not traveling to Myrtle Beach to spend the entirety of your stay in a hotel room but rather at a swim up bar or in the sand with... More

After arriving at 1 am and bugs scurrying, we had great help to another clean room. Second day, after 20+ years staying at tropical winds and hotel blue! I'm sad to say we won't be back. We've met some amazing people throughout the years here, but today a guy outed in the pool, after asking management to take care of... More

I'll try not to be too long but I have a lot to say. First, reading reviews on trip advisor before going on your trip can scare you if you see really bad reviews. I've noticed that most(not all) terrible reviews come from first timers on this website. This was my fifth year to Myrtle Beach with my family. This... More

I took me and my family (my fiance and 14 and 15 yr old, step daughters) here for a week. We arrived on Sunday, around 4:45pm. Check in said 5 so I didn't want to be too early. I stood in line for check in for over an hour and a half. It was chaos in the lobby. Many people... More

Ok, I must admit I was a little skeptical when booking this hotel because of the reviews. And when I got there, my room wasn't ready. Check in is at 4pm, and I arrived at 5:30pm. I waited approximately a half an hour before the room was deemed ready. The excuse was that there was a maintenance issue, and housekeeping... More

The hotel staff was very nice especially one of the maintenance supervisors. The hotel is not the most expensive but not the most elaborate either. The crowd for the Sunday party is loud but after Sunday is was more to our liking since we took the whole family. Love the swim up bar and the use of Captain's Quarters bowling... More

Looks a lot better from the street then it did on the inside, staff was friendly enough but room was very run down. Could barely see the ocean from the ocean view room. Room had a very scummy feel to it. And king size bed was way to squeaky to get busy in.

Just got back on 7/20/15 . The only issue I found was there were so many rafts in the pool you could not relax. Children had rafts and water guns and huge beach ball that kept hitting you no respect for other visitors. Room was clean plenty of towels no complaints there. Lobby bar was non existent, not opened at... More
