We spent 4 nights (8/19 - 8/2304) at the Hampton and were impressed from beginning to end! My wife and I do a lot of traveling, but this was only our third trip to Myrtle Beach. We chose this hotel because of the trip advisor reviews and the fact that they had last minute availability. We had an ocean front room on the 11th floor (I would not recommend the cheaper side views since they are on the street end of the hotel) with 2 queen beds. All of these rooms also have a tiny kitchenette with a nice refridgerator and microwave. Since there is no stove, this might not be a good choice for families that want to do their own cooking. We enjoyed the balcony with its heavy rocking chairs. Parking is in an attached indoor-outdoor garage and we always found a space. This hotel is well maintained and very clean. The breakfast buffet (included) is continental..but very well stocked and will satisfy anyone unless they want eggs (not available). The pool area is one of the best we have seen at the shore..and the beach is only a few steps from the door. We left some clothes in one of the drawers and called the hotel as soon as we returned home. Our clothes arrived 2 days later via UPS. This was typical of the excellent very professional service and extremely friendly staff. This hotel is a bit pricey...but worth the extra dollars for those that want a place that doesnt rent to those under 25, has a classy ambiance, and great staff.
