“Things are getting better.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I had stayed at Brookwood every year for over 16 years. It was always clean and comfy. The last management team that was there ran it into the ground. I just stayed for 4 days and I felt like I was taken back in time. The owner, Robert, is now running the show. Ready and willing to do whatever he can to make your stay a pleasant one. The rooms are soooo much cleaner and fresher. This is not the Hilton, its dated (thats its charm) but geeze it was only 60.00 when the holiday inn express was 130.00. Slept in a big cal. king w/ an icy a/c. What more did I need? It`s quiet, charming, comfy, and cheap.

Room Tip: The best rooms are 25 thru 29

Vintage motor court, very dog friendly. Close to good restaurants and highway US17, but on a quiet side road. Wireless doesn't reach beyond office. Mattresses seem of same vintage as building and need replacement. Bedding a little shabby. But, overall a satisfactory experience and we would stay again.

I regret that our experience at the Brookwood Inn, Murrels Inlet, SC, was far below expectations. The center piece of our disappointment was the shower; it was filthy and in dangerous repair. Domino-size ceramic tiles with sharp edges lay loose all over the shower floor.
Mildew, evidently growing unchecked for some time, was pervasive on the edges and corners and even the easier-to-reach flat surfaces of the walls.
Both the sink and the shower leaked. The sink, dirty and corroded, had no trap or stopper (a situation totally unacceptable to contact lens users who fear losing the lens down the drain).
The towel racks were loose and/or broken. The carpet was very old, frayed and needing serious attention.
Management was often unavailable. We had to race through check-in due to time issues with a wedding we were participating in on the Garden City Beach. We made the mistake of unloading our luggage w/o inspecting the room. On our return later that evening we discovered how truly un-kept and neglected our assigned room was. Furthermore, it was infested with a variety of insects that ignored us much better than we could ignore them. It was 10:30 PM and the office was dark and locked up.
We endured a restless night, loaded up and checked out the next morning. We insisted on their crediting our credit card, which, I will say gratefully, they did with little protest.
At one time the Brookwood Inn was, and perhaps with some investment and resolve, yet could be, a charming, quiet and rustic motel. Presently, it earns the distinction of being the first establishment I ever felt compelled to issue an alert about via one of these reviews. We will never return!

Room Tip: Mom and Pop establishments, regrettably, are best avoided.

I stayed here in May 2011, and I adored this place. Its a great mom and pop hotel, peaceful and with lots of character. Granted, if you are expecting the Four Seasons (or must be beachfront), this is not the place for you. But this a great, budget-friendly place for those who want to go off the beaten track. Also, within stumbling distance of the Marshwalk if you like a few margaritas with your dinner :)

Room Tip: I stayed in Room 43 - the room itself was roomy, with a mini-fridge and an additional sink (other th...

We regularly stay at The Brookwood Inn in Murrell's Inlet, SC anytime we travel from Hillsborough, NC to Murrell's Inlet, SC. The management team of Michelle and Dale, plus the housekeeping staff, go out of their way to make you feel like you are part of the family. The rooms are very clean and the service is excellent! The staff are professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the local area.
The motel is reminiscent of the old Route 66-type motels of the 1950's Hollywood Era. It is clean, comfortable, quite, and peaceful. It is minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Grand Strand and all of the entertainment options it offers. In the other direction, going South, are the hidden jewels of Brookgreen Gardens and Pawley's Island.
Walking out the front door of your room at The Brookwood Inn, you are literally steps away from the beauty of The Inlet. Sunsets watching the local fishing boats coming and going in the Inlet can't be bought.
I HIGHLY recommend this motel for families, couples, retirees, and anyone else looking for a peaceful retreat from the chaotic hassle of daily life. Don't miss this gem!

My husband and I booked a room for one night (our anniversary) and got there on a Sunday about 1pm. Michelle checked us in and gave us our room which was quite cozy. The bed was comfortable and the room was cold thanks to the AC. The location is perfect; within 5 minutes are some great restaurants. Michelle recommended a couple to us and we took her up on the lunch option at River City. (Yum!) Also the Marsh Walk is right there and you can get to all the restaurants that way. I forgot shampoo and conditioner and when my husband went to get some it was provided for us. They are super friendly and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. We didn't use the pool but it looked we cared for and clean. This is an older motel, but I was happy and slept great. And that's all I could ask for. Plus we only paid $70 for the night!
