“Nice Family Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

We took a few days over the holiday to go to the beach. We always stay at Longbay Resort on 72nd & ocean blvd.
Once again we were not disappointed. Our 3 bdrm ocean front was beautiful and the amenities were great. With the weather being chilly the indoor pool and lazy river felt wonderful. The staff was very friendly. It was a great Christmas treat.

Have been vacationing to Myrtle Beach of the years and have yet to find a place that feels like a home away from home. From the safe, being courtous and attentive, to the amazing amenities, we have found our favorite place to stay when wanting to get away from the cold north. We will tell all our friends about your incredible resort!!

Room Tip: Ask for Left Side of the Tower, better view of ocean!!!

Stayed the beginning of January. The rooms were clean and priced very well. The location was perfect and the staff was very nice. Only issue was the slow housekeeping which I attributed to the slow season. May have found a new permanent spot to stay in myrtle beach.

Thank you for writing a review for us on Trip Advisor!

While it may be winter time, do not let the cooler weather fool you. Between our snowbirds and golfers taking advantage of the ideal conditions, we stay fairly occupied all year long. However, this is not an excuse for a lack of housekeeping services. We will do everything necessary to improve the speed and quality of our housekeeping department. I sincerely appreciate your feedback.

Thanks again, and we look forward to becoming your permanent spot to stay in Myrtle Beach!

We've been to a handful of places at Myrtle Beach over the past four years, and this was the best and the best value. The room was spacious, the facilities were in decent shape and there was a few different options...hot tubs inside and out (out was FANTASTIC!), pools inside & out, lazy river, games. Beach is always beautiful. Our room was clean and the pool areas were well kept. There's Starbucks, a restaurant & cafe (for lunch) on site but we did not eat in any of them. Just off the property is Riverside Cafe, which has great burgers.

Only complaints: the pillows were terrible and it didn't seem like they cleaned up the stairways & hallways very well as there was a toothpick that stayed on the same stair landing the entire three days we were there. Front desk staff was pleasant; we really didn't encounter any other staff during our stay.

Room Tip: "ocean view" on the southside were not really ocean view, they're more view of the peo...

It's wonderful to know that you found our resort to be a better value and quality than others that you've stayed at. We strive to be the number one resort in Myrtle Beach.

I have advised our Director of Housekeeping of your concerns with the pillows and common areas and I can assure you this will not be an issue upon your next visit.

Please do not hesitate to contact me directly if I can be of any further assistance. We look forward to serving you again in the future!

We had an all around great family vacation experience at the Long Bay Resort! Location was convenient to everything. We forgot toothbrushes and tooth paste, so they gave us what we needed. Amenities were great for all ages. A lot of indoor pools are freezing, not here. The kiddie pool was even warm. The sauna was a great way to relax after a busy day. Great place to stay. I have already told friends to stay there.

We sincerely appreciate the personal referrals. I'm happy to know that you found the resort so accommodating. Please, do not ever hesitate to ask the Front Desk for forgotten items or needed toiletries. And the few items that we do not provide will soon be made available by our new and improved gift shop....coming this summer!

Thanks again and we look forward to serving you again in the future.

Come back two times a year and love it. Hotel is right on the beach. Huge outside beach front pool. Cafe has great beachfront food. They inclose the lazy river, kids pool and smaller pool for the winter and all are heated. All pools open year round. Great views. prefer ninth floor. Starbucks on site and close to all site seeing locations but in a quiet area. Beds are comfortable and kitchens have granite countertops and all the amenaties.

My fourth straight year staying the first week of January. I always stay on the southside with a view of the ocean. outdoor hot tub awesome there are also 3 indoors. Pool inside & out plus indoor lazy river. Everyone that works here are very friendly. Flat screen tv in rooms, waist high fridge, coffee maker & microwave. With your room key you get a discount at restaurant next door River City, There is a restaurant and Starbucks in house. Starbucks opens at 6 am.

Room Tip: I prefer southside 3rd floor & up, room more towards the beach.
