I stayed at this mold invested, sour smelling establishment and was never so depressed during a vacation. We packed our bags and left for a different hotel . This place should be condemed by the Board of Health. Under garments were left on the balcony along with cigarette butts and dead waterbugs upon check in.....meaning no care was given to cleaniness after checking out other guest. The staff were no where to be seen, the hallways were littered with garbage, and reeked of urine, water stains throughout the rooms, broken air conditioners, sand in the pool that was surppose to be cleaned daily and of course the mold that surrounded many areas inside of the guest rooms. The front door was a danger to close whereas the metal surrounding the locks and the doorknobs made it almost impossible to grip the knob to shut the steel door without injurying the knuckle of your index finger and thumb. The parking garage was impossible to access or exit without almost hitting other vechicles. Leaning on the cinder blocked balcony that was painted white, you would stand upright only to discover that there were chips of paint up and down your forearms. I would never reccommend this hotel to any traveler no matter what form of income you have. This place is a disgrace and should not be on any travel sites. They also stated no pets. Why were there pets in certains rooms barking continuously throughout the night. I ask you all to stay away from this place of garbage and not patronize this establishment. It's a shame that they are there to represent an area of Myrtle Beach, SC.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel.

You have been warned unless you are on your last dime because this is the absolutely the worse hotel ever.....think the worse and a rip off. Just to stay you should bring cleaning supplies, sheets, blankets, pillows, and air freshner. Word to the wise just don't stay here.

Alot of heavy black mold and mildew EVERYWHERE on the bedspreads, mattresses walls and ceiling. Rusty, sticky flithy moldy furniture. The ceiling has water damage and some of the cealing is hanging down a little in a couple parts of the room. There was one lamp to light up the room so the room is pretty dark. There's a ton of lights in the bathroom. There are some steep ramps to drive up to park your car. The refrigerator was very cold, clean and roomy. The microwave was nice and clean too. The water pressure in the shower was like a fire hose, it was strong enough to blast you right out of the shower. The shower curtain was dirty, it had mildew on it and it was nasty. Pets are welcome. They put allot of chemicals in the pools. We saw allot of big roaches around the hot tub and pool but I didn't see any in the room. Great veiw from the balcolny. You will pay a good bit more then they advertise on the sign out front, don't believe the price they have on the sign. There is a tiny old raggedy tv and NO wi fi. The mold and mildew and sticky furniture were the worst part next to the saggy mattress that put a hurting on my back. They have a free ice machine to fill up your cooler.

This is the worst motel I have ever seen. We were on a tight budget and reserved a room for 4 nights. It looked ok from the parking lot when checking in but after that it was all downhill. The hallways smelled of urine and mold. When you shut the door to the room you could actually see enough through the crack of the door to know the weather. We stayed on the 7th floor and when it rained it acutally ran down the wall in our room. There were two floors above us!! I can only imagine the water the top floor was getting. That explained the wet stinky carpet. I kept shoes on the ENTIRE time. There was mold in the bathroom and on the walls in the main room. The bed was horrible. I sat on the foot of the bed to change shoes and sank. My back hurt the entire stay. The furniture was stained and looked as if it had suffered water damage. To adjust the air conditioning you had to climb on a chair. We got on the elevator to go up to our room on the second day of our stay and the elevator broke down with us in it. We weren't trapped too long but a maintainence man put a trash can in the doorway of the elevator and left. Another couple moved the can and got on and got stuck. I would have thought that disabling an elevator took more than a trash can. Like maybe disconnecting power somehow? I would have loved to have left and checked in somewhere else but our budget didn't allow for a more expensive room somewhere else. Lesson learned. I will stay home before I book at a place like this. RESEARCH before you book please! I will.
