“Considering what I've been through just read”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

OK so we first were at the Polynesian which is a sister hotel to the Viking. We had switched hotels because the mold was so bad(at the Polynesia) that I was getting sick and could.not stay there. We arrived at the Viking and the lady at the front desk was very nice and understanding about our situation and they gave us a better room. I guess considering we were in THE WORST HOTEL (THE POLYNESIA) this place was a sigh of relief. The parking is an issue though considering there is a sewage line right at the endof the parking lot. But all in all a very nice room. Read the Polynesian reviews and this place may change your mind

My family spent 3 nights in an oceanfront 2 room suite. We were very pleased with our stay. room was very clean and staff was extra nice. Rates were excellent for the weekend we stayed. It was not one of your "Big time resorts" but for the budget minded family was a very good choice. Would stay there again....

This is the nastiest place I have ever been in. The outlets didn't work. The doors didn't lock, and the worst part we were in the room 5 minutes and a cockroach climbs on my 2 year old. We left right then and found somewhere else to stay. Unfriendly staff and no parking either. Don't waste your time at this place

We stayed senior beach week. Kept everything very clean and very quiet. Room was exactly as pictured on line. Was not picture taken several years ago when everything was new. The picture was current. Rates were unreal for the location.

me and my family payed for a room a week before we went and they said on the phone check in time was 3:00pm we could not get in the room intill after 5:00pm so that was bad and it not clean at all and when we got down there there is cheaper motels and way better and there on the beach so i would get down there and look for a motel before i go on line and do it any day.and there is nothing but hotels next to it if your going to come myrtle beach make sure you go to the north side of the beach thats where every thing is

Room Tip: go to the north side the is nothing on the south

I would not go there again or recommend it .

Room Tip: I just wouldnt remmend it

Do not stay in this rat hole. Bugs. Mold EVERYWHERE. The mold drips down on your head as you shower. Mold around the windows. Mold in the carpets. Behind the fridge. BLOOD on the bedcovers. Blatant drug use by people who stay there. Drug deals. Obvously the inspection process in Myrtle Beach is a joke....there is no way this place is healthy to stay in. It should be burned to the ground. Broken appliances in the kitchen. AWFUL beds and pillows. Towels totally tiny, super thin to begin with but OLD and super thin. Took 3 of them to get my 3 year old dry after a shower....then called down to get more towels and was told they don't have any. Front desk staff rude, ignorant and useless. To say it is filthy is the understatement of the year. The low class people that stay there litter everywhere. Cigarette butts all over. It snows cig butss off the balconies at night. Trash strewn all over the grounds, pool deck area. Food floating in baby pool. I have never wasted my money so bad as I did on the viking. Please, don't stay here. Tell your friends.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. Stay away like it has the plague because it probably does. EVERYONE in my f...
