“a little on the tired side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

I checked out the Monterey Bay Suites and really enjoyed the fact that it was adjacent to the beach. It had indoor and outdoor pools and a lovely breakfast bar. It even had a pool on the 10th floor, where I was located. For me, it was fine. For others, it might not suit their up to date modern look as it did have some parts that were looking worn out, however, they were in the process of fising a few things. The room was nice but a bit on the dark side,but it did have a full kitchen.. Overall, great price for the location, which is what I wanted, though a little worn out.

This was our first stay at Monterey Bay Suites, although we visit Myrtle Beach, SC at least two times per year. I must say that this was an extremely rewarding choice. My husband suggested going to this hotel once we decided to stay an additional day in Myrtle Beach. The Manager was very courteous, professional and friendly. He went beyond the call of duty to find us a room. The check-in was very timely. When we reached our room we found that there was not a table on the patio. He had one brought up within minutes. The free morning breakfast was very delicious. It was a full course breakfast - very well prepared. The entire hotel was clean. All of the staff were pleasant. I have stayed at many resorts and hotels in many cities and I must say that this one is by far one of the best ever. It reflects the exceptional management throughout. The oceanfront room is very spacious. If you are ever in Myrtle Beach, SC do not hesitate to visit Monterey Bay Suites.

This is the second time we've stayed here and will be the hotel of choice for Myrtle Beach. The front desk staff are always eager to help and very friendly. We visited the first week in June. The pools weren't overly crowded which was nice and the lazy river was enjoyable. We had an ocean view room with two balconies. It was very spacious, clean and stainless appliances in kitchen!. The ocean view was just as pleasant as the ocean front which we stayed in last time. But the best feature of all was the bedding. The children slept in the two queen beds and my husband and I slept on the Murphy bed in the livingroom. I know what you're thinking, but sleeping on that matress was like sleeping on a cloud. Best three nights sleep in years!! Even looked for the tag to order one when I got home. Thank you, everyone for a fabulous trip!! See you soon!!

My husband and I recently stayed here for a week. The rates were good,free breakfast was a plus. The pools were clean along with the hot tubs. The only complaints I have is the parking is a nightmare very tight I had to hold my breath every time we left the parking structure. The bathroom floor had hair on the floor when we first arrived to the room. The hair dryer was also broken and almost caught fire when I tried to use it. The front desk staff were a little rude at times. This hotel is away from the boardwalk which is where most of the activity is. Next time we would stay closer to the boardwalk but this is a great location for families. Lifeguard on the beach in front if the hotel was nice. Hallway railing made noise when wind blew.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 15th floor and the view was amazing from there.room on the end was quiet.

We are glad to hear that overall you had a good stay with us here at the Monterey Bay Suites. We are a little bit of drive to all local attractions and such but we do advertise that we are in more of a residential area in Myrtle Beach so it is a little bit quieter in our area. We do apologize for any of the other inconveniences that you encountered during your stay with us and hope that you might return in the future.

The place is nice, it's clean it's all ocean front and the curtains in the room are dark to keep the sunlight out while you are wanting to sleep. The breakfast is freshly prepared and good. The only problem I have ever heard from others is the parking lot is a little snug, but as long as you can drive well, no problems

Room Tip: Rooms all ocean front...

Looks like the hotel has been updated recently. Fresh pain, clean and the room was nice. Stayed at the hotel for a weekend get a way for 2 nights. Room was nice, clean and oceanfront. We stayed in room 1125. Only issues were...the elevators are a little weird, 2 are together and another is around the corner. You have to watch all 3 to catch the one you need. The location is a little way from the "strip" but it is very quiet and family type. The pool - is almost hot water like the spa. The water in the pool was almost uncomfortable warm, all the people were talking about it. I guess the water is perfect temp for winter but not the warmer months. Roof top pool is really on the 10th floor and on top of the parking garage. Nice pool, nice view and really quiet but not alot of sun, due the building has 16 floors - pool is nice. Free breakfast was nice, it was good also. The lady serving the hot food was very nice and helpfull.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms are beautiful, choose a higher floor for best ocean view

My husband and I stay here in 2011 and had a major problem w/the smell in the room. The manager(after we left) said that there was a water leak n the bedrm from the AC. Yesterday we came back to Myrtle beach and were searching for a room bc we have had bad experiences booking online. We thought that we would give Monterey the benefit of the doubt and try it out again. We went to look at a room(7th floor) and the smell from that room was overpowering. We couldn't even walk through it. It made me sick. And OMG please clean DUSTY FAN in the elevator.That is pathetic. Also, the receptionist at the front desk DID NOT look/act professional AT ALL! This is a decent hotel. I just don't understand why they don't invest in NEW carpet. It's disgusting! AMY H.
