“the best vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We'll exactly come there again. Never forget this summer vacation at MONTEREY BAY! The room was amazing, the staff was wonderful, a housekeeping was exellent! Our young housekeer was carying about us and providing with everything we need. I'm so sorry but i dont remember exactly her name, it sounded like Jaan or Ijaan. Anyway we liked her, a nice girl, so lively and cool:)) Also we liked swiming pool, everything was nice nothing to say, we were so glad with this vacation) Thank You

The hotel is mediocre and not awful for the price and location but for them to have parking on the bottom floor for large vehicles and then to have toyota corollas and nissan altimas taking all the spots so my huge truck had nowhere to go is just stupid....when I parked a hair over the line I got a ticket but yet none of these cars have to move??? Get real...will never stay there again...I stay there so my new vehicles have security yet I'm parked on the street now...awesome!!!

The staff and management here at Monterey Bay Suites would like to apologize for the inconveniences that you experienced while staying with us. Unfortunately, parking can be a huge annoyance particularly on weekends when the hotel is completely booked.

The management, front desk staff, and security constantly monitor the parking garage to ensure that our guests with over-sized vehicles have the ability to park in the designated over-sized parking area. However, sometimes it is impossible to get those guests with smaller vehicles that are improperly parked to move. We are always on the lookout for illegally parked guests and we always try to get those people to move, but sometimes it just doesn't happen. In the situations where we cannot contact these guests or just plain won’t move, all we can do is ticket the vehicle and hope that they adhere to the rules of parking the next time that they park.

We understand it was quite annoyance that you had to park your vehicle across the street; however this happens more than we would like it to but our security does also constantly monitor the street parking.

Again, we apologize for the inconveniences that you encountered during your stay with us here at the Monterey Bay Suites.

Room quality was great, got a nice ocean front suite, oddly enough the exact same room I believe when I stayed there 7 or so years ago. Two pool areas, great location, free breakfast, you can fit 6 people comfortably. Was speaking with a couple in the elevator that said the quality had fallen in the past years, I disagree. I think its the best value on the beach. If I come down again I wont hesitate to book here. Oh, and the beds, awesome. Good nights sleep every night. Ac so cold you could keep penguins in the room if you want.

Room Tip: The full ocean view rooms are great and worth a lil more if you have to pay for them.

This was the first visit in over seven years coming back to myrtle beach. The seven days six nights was a very memorable moment. Enjoyed the breathe taking sun set and sunrise. Stayed in rm 1243. Upon walking in the room you could've smelled the freshness and cleanliness of the room. The only upsetting thing during this stay the elevator got stuck, that truly scared the hell out me. Besides that I really enjoyed my stay and the morning breakfast.

Great roof top hot tub. Breakfast is amazing each day. Location has great restaurants just a short drive away. Water amenities are great in general. Staff is always attentive to your needs. Click book it if your debating this location. Probably location 4/10 for places we check rates when going to the beach on our several trips a year.

Anniversary trip- at check in we were told we should have mentioned it when we reserved and they would have "hooked us up" with a package. Later found the package comes with a price. Room was ok, clean, basic suite amentities for light cooking. Cutting back with only shampoo in bath. Ok as we bring what we need, just interesting to see how things are cut back. Bed was comfortable, rooms were well decorated. Enter into the bedroom and travel through to living room on ocean front. Not an issue for us. Great view from balcony. Pools are fine. Hot tub on ground floor was occupied by 2 couples for an entire afternoon into the evening. The only time someone left was to get more to drink. When this was addressed to the counter it was barely acknowledged with no action. Breakfast was not as good as the last time we stayed but not bad. Basic breakfast, changes a little daily so it does add some variety to breakfast if you stay several days. Elevators can be a wait, change directions while you are in them, and cause you to take the stairs. Parking garage is tight on the corners and is intimidating to some. We have paid more for far less in other locations.

Room Tip: Corner suites on south side provide view of old Myrtle Beach and appear larger with more light.
