“Happening!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Right at the center of the Boardwalk ... Right on the Ocean, every room faces the ocean and beautiful boardwalk. Clean and service was excellent! Great size - two queen beds with plenty of room for multiple family member to walk around! Close to everything, park your car and explore. Charm vs. new, but clean and you cant beat the GREAT price!

Room Tip: All room face the ocean. Traditional rooms and efficiencies.

Personally, I loved this motel. It wouldn't be for someone looking for anything fancy, but it was perfect for a couple or family. Great location and hospitality. The rooms were a nice size and clean and also a great price for overlooking the beach. You're not staying in the hotel all day so what more do you need?

We are residents of Myrtle Beach so during off season we stay weekly somewhere. Most of these reviews are probably correct from the previous management however since September it has been taken over by its original owner and is being maintained and upgrades being done. Our room was completely remodelled with flat screen and very clean - the staff was great and helpful. I also work in hotels if you are looking for the extra amenities that is what you will pay for- but for the age of the property and the location - you will get what you pay for here We would return - and recommend

My wife and I stayed there Aug 20-23 . Great location ! Room was Deluxe Oceanfront on 3rd floor . Great ocean view and big balcony . I would say 12ft by 6 ft . Room was clean and bed linen was freshley washed . Small fridge ( Dorm size ) , coffee maker and small microwave . Phone in room didnt work . No problem , had cell phone . Bathroom was small but big enough . Staff very friendly . Continental breakfast was Coffee and a sweet . Resteraunt opens latter in day . Mammy's Kitchen is less than a block away with breakfast buffet around $ 10.00 a piece . Loved the fact that Motel is at end of row and not many people on beach in front of motel . If you want ice they have ice machine on site but takes a quater for ice bucket full . Did not use pool but looked clean . Motel is a little outdated but nice for the price . Would stay again and plan too . Nice to still have a family owned motel in Myrtle Beach .

Our family stayed here July 15-July 21. We had a great time! Staff was wonderful!! We had stayed here last summer for a few days! We were close to everything! Reminded us of the Old Myrtle Beach Days!! It has an awesome ocean front view!! We recommend this motel over the higher priced ones you don't have so many extras that you pay for but never use!! WE LOVE THE DIPLOMAT!! Our family MOTEL!!

Hotel is in a great location and the staff was very nice. The hotel is older but seemed to be well maintained. The rooms are large and get the job done. If you want a bunch of extra amentities that you probably won't use anyway you shoukd stay at one of the newer hotels. This has a kind of has the mom and pop feeling ljke Myrtle Bsach used to be. As in prevoius reviews there is not a lot of parking but if you get in early and leave your car parked you will have no problem. I would definitely stay here again.

My family and I were there a couple of days ago. I was bit leery at first, but once I got in the room, I found that it was not too bad. The hotel and rooms are a bit outdated, but it was clean and we had a great oceanfront view of the beach. The beds were very comfortable, the price was great and the staff was very friendly. I could stay here again.
