“Girls Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Overall the rooms are nice and clean and the facilities are great for families. Upon check-in, we were greeted pleasantly and had a speedy check-in around midnight. However, we were told something about a few steps we would have to take to get to our room. Well, try a half flight or so of steps and then a long hallway. No way to use a luggage cart. This was not our idea of fun so we were greeted by security and taken to a queen suite that met our needs much better. The oceanfront regular rooms all have steps. Not practical when traveling!

Our stay was nice and the staff was friendly. A beautiful view of the ocean too bad the weather did not cooperate!

Our last night was most unpleasant. A group of young people congregated in the parking garage outside our room off and on all night long beginning around 3. We should have notified the desk but with their engines revving and all of the noise I kept thinking security would handle it. Finally, around 7:15 I did call to find out that security was gone and there was nothing they could do. My fault for not calling but I also feel like more monitoring should have taken place. We could understand their complete conversations. I did step in the hall at 5:30 and one of them apologized. They disappeared for about an hour and then back at it. If you are a light sleeper, you will want to be above the parking garage because you can hear the cars going around and all of the voices.

All in all a good resort with clean facilities and a friendly staff. This was our third visit. I may think about checking other options next time or definitely request a higher floor.

Room Tip: Higher floor if you are a light sleeper and plain oceanfront rooms require steps which is not good f...

Thank you for writing a review for us on TripAdvisor.

I apologize if our reservations department failed to explain the location of the room. Due to the architectural design of the building, there is indeed an unavoidable staircase you must utilize to access any of our Oceanfront or North Oceanview Rooms. Additionally, the very same security guard that helped you to your new room, also patrols the entire property throughout the night. Unfortunately, it is impossible for him to be everywhere all the time, and the acoustics of the parking garage can make it difficult to isolate the source of any excessive noise. Please do not ever hesitate to contact the Front Desk, 24 hours per day, if you have any issues, and we will happily send an appropriate staff member to immediately address it.

Again, I apologize for the incident with a few fellow guests, and feel free to contact me directly if I can be of any assistance. I'm glad you were able to enjoy your getaway overall, despite the actions of a rowdy few. We look forward to serving you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Corey S.

This is the best place we have ever stayed at in Myrtle Beach(we use to have a timeshare at Bluegreen)! Lots of pool options (even the outdoor pool was open), 4 different hot tubs at different temps (one for the kiddos too!), VERY clean room, and the ability to make food(breakfast) in a kitchenette microwave. Will definitely stay here next time we come!

Room Tip: Try for higher up rooms, the views are spectacular!

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...

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.
