“Lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my family while attending a conference. We decided to stay here instead of my conference hotel since we are vacation club owners and prefer Marriott properties. The staff was very friendly. The service at the restaurant was always excellent. The outdoor pools are nice but finding a place to sit is always an issue. We found that people would go down to the pool and put out several towels around 7AM(one morning I saw a guy lay out 10 towels on 10 loungers and leave). The staff says they have a policy against this and that staff is instructed to remove these towels but we never saw it enforced. So if you go down to the pool later in the day... Good luck finding a place to put your things! The rooms are nice and housekeeping services are excellent. For a beach resort there should be places to hang wet clothes but hooks and a retractable clothes line you find in the shower were lacking.

Dear nvirpa,

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here at the Myrtle Beach Marriott. Thank you for your sweet comments regarding the service. Thank you for your feedback regarding the pool seating. During the summer months, it can get very busy on the pool deck and we apologize if this impacted your experience. We are always looking for ways to improve and we appreciate your idea regarding hooks for hanging wet clothes in the room. Thank you for choosing Marriott and we hope to see you again the next time you are in Myrtle Beach.

We stayed last year for 5 nights, and decided this would be an annual trip. This year we stayed for 7 nights, and we are planning to shoot for 10 next summer. I am a platinum member and as such travel close to 200 nights a year, needless to say I see a lot of hotels and deal with a great deal of hotel staff members. Not only is the resort great, and has everything you need, but the staff here helped make our trip spectacular(thank Emily). We will see you all next year!

We stayed here from August 3-7 with our 6 year-old daughter for a family vacation. There was a lot to do and we had a great time. Our room was on the 4th floor and was clean with a nice view. We loved the pools and the beach area. My only complaint was an extremely loud family in the room next to ours. They had a young infant that woke up screaming several times a night and early in the morning. This is not the fault of the hotel - and we didn't ask to be moved. I would definitely recommend the kids activities - especially the Kids in the Kitchen. The chef, Paul, was great with the kids. Kourtney, the girl in charge of the activity was also extremely careful to make sure kids with food allergies were accommodated. Our daughter does not have any allergies - but I was really impressed with how well they handled kids that did. The cookies were delicious and this was just a really fun activity for our daughter - loved this !! The bartenders at the Cove knew my husband and his drink order after about 15 minutes the first day. The accommodations were were great - but the staff here really made the trip. I would definitely go back !!

Room Tip: I would try to get a higher floor - we did get some A/C noise - but nothing awful.

My wife and I stayed at the resort for three days in July for a business trip. The room was a nice size, bed was very comfortable, food and drinks were good but a little pricey, pool area was very nice and the beach was very nice. Very close to shopping and golf.

Room Tip: Get a room on the ocean side!

Family of four for three nights. Was impressed on how clean given the high traffic. Rooms were comfortable and beds were very comfortable. Parking was easy, however, it rained over the weekend and we had to park in the parking garage basement. It ended up flooded and all kinds of mud and water at the stairwell. Broken downspout created the issue. Loved all the hammocks. Seemed we can get one at anytime, however, they need to remove the mulch underneath. Wet feet brings the mulch on the hammock and creates a mess. The staff were all very welcoming and always cheerful. The elevators were fast and always available. Pools were clean and warm. Had to have a towel card but the staff was very flexible in giving towels out. We did get a roll away bed. Used it one night. It was a horrible mattress. A bed of nails would have better. Not kidding either. They did to upgrade those and replace ASAP.

Came here for four nights as a quick getaway for our sons birthday. Hadn't been to Myrtle Beach before and had heard mixed reviews so we were nervous. Wasn't a problem because this resort is not in the center of all the night life and activity of the main drag in Myrtle Beach. For us that was a big plus- if you want that kind of energy then stay elsewhere. If you want calm and quiet luxury on the beach then this is the place for you. You can easily get to the busy center if you want to so the location is very good.

The staff were extremely nice and welcoming. Our room had an ocean view and was clean and spacious. The pools are large and weren't crowded while we were there. Not much shade at the pools so if you want an umbrella get out there early. The beach is beautiful and the ocean warm. If you are staying longer then the Marriott villas next door look very nice too.

Overall a very nice first experience of Myrtle Beach.
