We planned our trip to Myrtle Beach and two weeks before decided we would leave earlier than we had originally planned and just find a room for two or three nights until we checked in at our resort as scheduled. We arrived late on a Friday night and after checking with a few places who wanted to charge us what we had paid for the resort we booked for the whole week, we came upon this place which was actually across the street from where we stayed last year and it seemed ok from watching it the year before. They had just dropped their rates for the night and it was what we were willing to pay. They did offer to let us see the room before we paid for it, which we did and upon entry it seemed comfortable enough and smelled clean. We paid for three nights and upon entry to the room and closer inspection found that it was absolutely NASTY!!! The curtains were stained, torn and moldy. The ceilings had stains on them. The bathroom sink took forever for the water to drain, there was no hot water in the bathroom sink. No remote for the TV and after inspection of the curtains we felt very uncomfortable about sleeping in the beds. We stripped the bedspreads off of the beds and slept on top of the sheets after I stripped the bed completely to make sure there were no bed bugs, etc. Luckily we had brought a couple of blankets for the car trip so we used those to cover up with as well as pillows brought from home! The police were called there every night that we were there, after check-in we heard someone talking to the management or owners about something being stolen from their room, and then the last night someone had called the police for a problem they had and they ended up taking that person to jail. After we checked in and saw the conditions we immediately advised the front desk that we wanted NO service during our stay as we definitely did not want anyone in our room while we were out. We actually felt better about keeping certain valuables in our car which was in site of our room and always took all money with us wherever we went. They had "keys" for the rooms instead of swipe cards like most places have which really made us uneasy to begin with. There was no phone in the room but we had our cell phones with us in case we needed them and my husband kept his gun by his side constantly while in the room and at night while sleeping. Do not stay here regardless of the price!
