“We will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This was an amazing hotel. We stayed to get out of town for an evening, and this is such a huge improvement over the hotels on the strip! The view of the ICW was so nice! We stayed in the Grande Guest room, and it was very spacious, clean, and quiet. The staff were very friendly when we checked in/out, and when we saw them around the property. The location is awesome, just down from Broadway at the Beach. It feels like you are so removed from the hustle, but then so close when you get on the highway!

The best time to visit Myrtle beach is in the winter. This hotel was inexpensive ( but you do have to pay for breakfast at the hotel's restaurant) and clean .The hotel staff was very polite and friendly.

This hotel has a nice big indoor pool too.

Bad points: The housekeeping had to be requested and the housekeeping person didn't seem very friendly. Also, we didn't get the promised 5$ meal coupon for going green with regards to not requesting new towels etc. ! It's not about the money, it's about principles , so obviously we were disappointed with broken promises!!

Apart from a couple of issues overall it's a nice hotel !

My boyfriend and I needed a little getaway. We found the Marina Inn and thought.... Nice. I have to admit they make you feel a little spoiled. We arrive to valet service, our room was like an apartment! Beautiful furniture, lovely king bed and a kitchen. They will take your luggage to your room and will bring it down when you leave. The view was nice and we had a great time. I will definitely go there again!

We had a superb experience at the Marina Inn. Rooms are superb and large enough for the kids to be active while in door. The food at the resturant is great. The pool is also wonderful. The view from every angle of the hotel is breath-taking. Will return every year!

Excellent Hotel with large spacious rooms. Close to many attractions. I would definitely stay there again. Great value compared to most hotels. I felt like I was at the ritz or four seasons. Beautiful property with great views of the river. Also, nice golf course and clubhouse.

The class and feeling is like the best hotels I have stayed in .... in Maui and in Thailand. From Beach Resorts in Maui to the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.... from the door man to the bathroom... This is one of my favorite hotels to stay in. We were treated very good. The service and staff were wonderful. Bruce at the front door, Emmy at the desk, Bill at the door also were all friendly, personable... The view was also beautiful.... We would love to stay here again.

Traveling to Myrtle Beach to play in a tennis tournament at Grand Dunes I saw this highly rated hotel close by and booked. Upon arrival I quickly understood why this hotel had so many great reviews. My room was spacious, very well appointed with a great view of the Intercoastal Waterway and the Grand Lawn. The bathrooms were very large with tub and seperate shower, plenty of countertop space and even had artwork hanging. As a matter of fact quality artwork was hung throughout the hotel as well as in the rooms. Although it was November and weather was cool the outdoor pool and spa area is beautiful and would be a great place to spend time when temperatures are higher. Overall one of my favorite hotels and having booked at an online discount site the price was unbelievable.

Room Tip: The best views are on the Intercoastal Waterway side
