“"Nice getaway"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

This past weekend was our second visit to Sea Watch. (We come to the beach in Feb and Nov..with Feb. being a short visit...we have stayed at SW both times in Feb.) The location being right off Kings Hwy and 22 makes it so accessible to area attractions, yet tucked away for a quiet stay. We were in the North Tower, 15th floor..nice ocean front view. The staff is always friendly and helpful. And the rooms as well as all of the common areas are clean. Of course, being Feb, it was chilly, but still able to walk the beach to relax. This is definitely a great choice for a quick weekend getaway! We'll be back again.

Room Tip: In the North Tower, you will miss a good view of the sunrise unless you are on the very far right of...

Have stayed at the Sea Watch Resort at least one time a year for the last 7 years. Would not stay anywhere else on the strip. Rooms priced reasonably, Usually have some great deals that correspond with your needs. Very friendly & helpful staff. Great breakfast buffet for a great price. Do miss having the option to stay on premises for dinner though. Sometimes after the pool parties you just don't feel like going out or cooking! Awesome ocean/pool views! Great for the family or just the 2 of you! Just love Jesse at the pool bar!

Room Tip: I prefer the south tower over the north tower rooms because it is usually quieter when you just want...

For Sea Watch to be claimed as your "home away from home" is a great honor for us along with your returning visits for 7 years in a row. Thank you for the wonderful compliments for the staff and our breakfast buffet and I will make sure to let Jesse know that you mentioned him specifically. Please keep in mind that we do have to go orders from our lunch menu and pizza that can be ordered from the Captain's Nook Ice Cream and Coffee Shop until 9:00pm during the summer season. Due to popular demand we have changed back to having the two pool parties a week on Tuesday and Thursday this summer! I appreciate your loyalty so much and look forward to seeing you soon.

This is our 2nd stay at the Seawatch Resort. Rooms are priced reasonably. Plus you get breakfast. This time we stayed in a 2br with an ocean view. The room was great. The 4 of us wife and 2 daughters had plenty of room and views were great. Not detail is to small. Breakfast buffet is really good. The location makes it a quick ride to either North Myrtle or to the south end. The staff is very friendly and check in/out is a breeze. They have finished renovations to the indoor pool and it is very nice.

Wanted a quick reasonable get away for the night. We were not disappointed. The room was cozy for two. Had a beautiful ocean view with access to the balcony from the living area and the bedroom. Watched a glorious sunrise from the bed. The staff was top notch checking in and out. Not everyone at a front desk is as happy to see you as these folks were. Would Definately stay her again.

Thank you for sharing your Sea Watch Resort experience with other TripAdvisor readers. The description of your accommodations sounds like you stayed in a one bedroom deluxe unit which is very comfortable. I truly appreciate your compliments for the staff and glad you were able to see first hand how incredible the ocean views and the sunrise can be. Hopefully we can become your home away from home and years from now look back and realize it all started with a one night stay!

The room itself was clean and nicely set up. They make the most of how tight the square footage is. I did not like how you walked into the bedroom area first - would rather have the beds away from the door, but that's just me. The kitchen was clean and new. Loved how cute the little living room and small table with stools was. My biggest complaint with this room was the comfort of the beds! They were horrible! I even tried sleeping on the pull out couch and it was springs in my back. You can definitely get a more comfortable room somewhere else for the price.

Thank you so much for choosing Sea Watch Resort for your recent vacation. It appears you may have stayed in one of our Oceanfront One Bedroom King or Double Bed units. We do have Oceanfront Two and Three Bedroom units where the master bedroom has a more complementary layout configuration. We also work hard to ensure high quality mattresses, and we apologize it was not so on your past visit. If you decide to stay with us on your next trip, we will work with you to find the right unit that will meet your needs.

Hubby and I rented a studio with full kitchen for a week after Christmas this year and for the two of us it worked out really well. There wasn't a lot of room for storing luggage, etc, but we simply took the empties out to the car and stored them there. Had a nice living room and dining area and the full-sized Murphy bed was truly comfy. As usual, we spent time walking on the beach enjoying sunrises and sunsets and collecting shells. A ride on the Skywheel was a treat and a round of mini golf at Captain Hook's was fun. We like the quiet of winter in MB and the affordability of Seawatch at this time of year can't be beat!

Knowing that you chose Sea Watch for the third year in row as your vacation destination is a great honor for us. I too think the studio unit is very accommodating and I appreciate your review about the one you stayed in. The views from the Skywheel ride must have been spectacular looking out over the ocean and Myrtle Beach and as it has been claimed "fun for all ages" a game of putt putt is a Myrtle Beach tradition in itself. Most importantly it sounds like the quiet beach time was just what was needed to complete your vacation. Thank you for letting us be a part of the experience and we hope to see you for year four!!

Our family has been going to Sea Watch for many years. We have come for both summer vacation and for New Years. We always stay in the North Tower. The rooms are very clean, reasonably priced and the staff very helpful. The kids LOVE the lazy rivers in the summer and the heated pools in the winter. Short drive to Broadway at the Beach and Tangier Outlets.
