“We will never go back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This hotel is dirty, smelly, and in poor working condition. Our one toilet did not work when we checked in. After waiting nearly 2 hours and making 3 phone calls, they sent a maintenance man to fix it. The whole unit smelled like mold. The bathroom smelled like a filthy gas station bathroom. We payed a lot of $$ to stay at this dirty hotel. Other than the nice location of being right on the beach, I can't think of anything nice to say. I couldn't wait to get out of there. We checked out early and never looked back. I do not know how it got the good reviews that it did. I have never written a review for a hotel before, but I feel the need to warn people. Don't stay here. And, don't believe the pictures. They make the hotel look much nicer than what it actually is.

This was my first time staying in south Myrtle Beach as I was always concerned that it would not be a family atmosphere. When u found this hotel on the website I took a chance. So happy I did. It not only had many amenities on cute but we were walking distance from the amusement and water park. It was well worth the change. We will be back!

Can't complain about anything! The multiple pools keep the kids entertained and the staff was more than helpful! Easy parking and location is on the beach and you can walk to many restaurants and shops. We will use this hotel again!

We had an ocean view room and the rooms were nice size. We did have several coach roaches in the kitchen area and on patio but maybe that is normal with food there. It was very family friendly and the kids enjoyed the pools a lot. Like having the indoor ones when sun is too hot or raining. Great central location to everything.

Room Tip: Ocean view on 14th floor was well worth the extra money. No noise, plenty of room for a family of 5...

This place is an absolute dump. There was so many things wrong with our room. The air conditioner blowed out mold. Not kidding they really need to do some deep down cleaning. I would not recommend to anyone at all. I was never so happy to leave we checked out early and went to a different hotel.

It's fun and affordable but they should have a few people scrubbing walkways and pool steps constantly. They should also enforce a little stricter parental supervision of younger children. Overall a nice place with friendly staff. Located in a very convenient spot.

Sea Crest is a very efficient family friendly hotel. Nothing fancy but the staff worked hard to keep the premises clean. Nice beach and my family enjoyed the water park, pool, and lazy river. Entertainment was a little lacking but hotel is in a great location to venture out. Family Kingdom was within walking distance. Sitting through a timeshare meeting can get up to 5 tickets to Family Kingdom for only $20. Well worth sitting through a presentation. Resort store is very overpriced so a ride to the store is suggested.
