All of the positive reviews of this hotel are completely true. The hotel is wonderful. It is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly and courteous. The suites are large and comfortable. The pool area is outstanding and very clean. Great place for families. Frankly, I think it is the nicest hotel overall at Myrtle Beach.
But don't go there during the early part of July if you expect to get any sleep at all. Fireworks are legal in SC, and people are shooting them off on the beach at all hours of the night. The police don't really care, and apparently the hotels are powerless to do anything either.
We stayed from July 6-12 and people were shooting off fireworks every single night.
This was our third stay, and we will definitely come again, but it will not be in early July.
Also, do not come during Bike Week. I'm not sure when that is, but thousands of bikers descend upon Myrtle Beach for that week. Our lifeguard told me that 864 people were arrested that week! Many bikers (probably drunk) had accidents with their bikes and 6 of them died. There was even a dead body found in the surf one morning. So definitely avoid Bike Week.
