“The nicest hotel room I have ever seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This room. For only $99 per night had many amenities and was beautifully designed from top to bottom. Marble countertops, stove, micro, full size refrigerator, toaster, blender, steaming pot, dishes, coffee maker. Wainscoting on the walls, attractive paint job, lovely modern lamps. Everywhere you looked, there was some fine detail you seldom see in hotels. The entry doors were heavy wood with beautiful carvings. The bathroom has an unusual sink design, and the shower has multiple heads to offer a massage while you wash your hair. I wished we were staying longer than one night.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful. 3rd floor offers quicker access to the widows walk

We like to come to South Carolina in the spring and fall. We got a timeshare getaway for a very good price at the Inlet Sports Lodge last spring and really enjoyed it so we came back in the fall. The unit is like a studio apartment with a very compact kitchenette. It has all the appliances you need for breakfast or lunch -- full size refrigerator, microwave, nice dishes and utensils. The shower is also wonderful once you figure out how it works with 4 body jets plus the overhead nozzle. The staff are very friendly and the common areas are very nice with both indoor and outdoor areas to use depending on the weather. The Murrels Inlet location is also great with many different restaurants to choose from. We plan on coming back in spring and/or fall for years to come.

My wife and I stayed here for a spontaneous weekend trip. We found it by accident just driving by. The place is wonderful, staff was great and room was well decorated and furnished. I would highly recommend this place. The only downsides were our room was under the stairs to the roof top widows access and we could hear everyone walking up and down. Also the breakfast was mediocre, and it is not really in a walkable area of town so you can't waning to the marsh walk area and restaurants. We also went digging with captain j in murrelles inlet (www.fishthinkguidesc.com) and had an awesome experience to top off our trip.

The lodge was wonderful. The staff went over and beyond their duties to make our stay memorable. The rooms were filled with cutting edge extras. It was very nice to have real china ,regular size coffee pot and regular size coffee cups. There was a great led light which was used without disturbing other people.The grounds were very lush and clean. The bed slept very well made with soft sheets . There is a great restaurant next door that was very reasonable. All in all it was great time.

...but didn't - at all. The place is beautiful and the amenities were great. However, some of the very basics were lacking. The too hard bed is two twins pushed together and taped with a foam strip that puts a ridge in the middle of the bed. The water pressure was too wimpy for the shower fixture they chose, although one of the massage settings gave a decent stream. The sink in the bathroom is pretty but useless. The sink counter is way too high, the water doesn't throw far enough into the sink to allow you to wash even your hands without banging into the side of the bowl and there isn't very much counter space around the huge vessel they chose for the sink bowl. The place is nicely done, it's a shame they made choices that left me wishing they had chosen comfort and utility over style.

I am sorry you were so disappointed with your accommodations. Typically with such a negative review I would invite you back on us so you could give us another try but I don't think in this circumstance it would matter as there is no immediate fix for the issues that you had. Sorry you had such a bad experience here at the lodge we do appreciate you giving us a chance.

We stayed for two nights as part of our US road trip in July. The room we were allocated was as decribed with the added unexpected benefit of a free breakfast, usual fare, nothing exceptional but enough to start the day.

We found the staff to be particularly friendly and helpful throughout our stay.

We had booked a week here through a timeshare "getaway" at a very reasonable price. Upon arriving we were happy to find a very modern, newly offered, full scale facility. Staff was helpful and we enjoyed our conversations each day complete with suggestions for our days adventure. Our room on the third floor was comfortable in every way. Beautiful touches like carved doors, upscale fixtures, and wonderful rain shower are part of the charm. Our favorite spots were the pool, which borders "Bliss" restaurant and the waitress happily handed us refreshments we ordered over the fence so we could stay by the pool and lunch too! The other spot was the widow's walk we would climb each evening and enjoy some wine and cheese while watching the sun set or distant lightening storms. Abundant restaurants and water sports filled our days here. Great vacation!

Room Tip: Upper floor was very quiet.
