“Very clean and attractive hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This hotel was very clean and the room and common areas were attractive and upscale. The room and bathroom was spacious and furnished with high-end finishes. The staff was helpful and friendly. The indoor pool was kind of small, but clean, and there were always towels available after swimming. The outdoor pool looked really nice as well, but we didn't get to swim in it due to the cold weather. My only complaints are that the beds weren't that comfortable and that our room never had enough towels. We had to specifically request more towels and washcloths a few times. We had four guests in our party and they usually only gave us 2-3 towels. It was quiet and not crowded. Overall, a very good place to stay and not too expensive for what you get.

It was our 48th anniversary and we decided to get away by ourselves for the weekend. The web site was very enticing so we made reservations. What a beautiful place! The staff was very friendly and most attentive. Their suggestions as to where to visit were very informative. The room was huge... full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, living room, dining room, 2 baths and a balcony with a great view of the golf course, inland waterway and marina. The amenities included valet parking, 24 hour pool/hot tub and a very relaxing bar. We will be back!

Heading south and decided to overnight in Myrtle Beach. For those use to staying in pricier hotels in the $150 dollar range, this hotel is a great value. Enormous room with a full kitchen, large bathroom with tub and separate shower, pillow top king bed and large seating area with couch, chairs and big screen TV. Beautiful view from the balcony o verlooking the Intercoastal Waterway and golf course. Hotel had pools, exercise room with modern equipment, restaurants and bars. Everything smelled fresh and staff were courteous and attentive. Valet parking complimentary if you want it. And to boot, a great location off of Rt 17 a few miles north of Broadway on the Beach. If I get back to Myrtle Beach for a golf vacation, this will be the only place I will consider. It was that good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the waterway.

I had a very pleasant experience at the Marina Inn! It was very clean, and the staff was attentive. There is a 24-hour pool/hot tub, which is a rare luxury. The bar, although I didn't go there, seemed nice as well. I would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: My balcony was facing the river/golf course. It was a nice view.

We just love this place! Gorgeous view of the golf resort, marina and the intracoastal canal. Our two bedroom suite was as large as a small house. We had three flat screens, a complete kitchen, dining, living and enormous bathrooms. Never even heard the three noisy teenagers I traveled with. Away from all the Myrtle Beach crowds, but can be anywhere in five minutes - including the private beach. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Ask to be in the tower overlooking the golf resort and the intracoastal canal. Top floor (12) was fa...

My wife and I decided to take a quick trip before New Year's Eve so we chose the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes based off the pictures and reviews from TripAdvisor. The location was not on the beach, but we were fine with the drive. The hotel was nice and the hotel staff was courteous and accommodating. The hotel grounds were beautiful, but the rooms were a bit dated. We stayed in a Suite which was very spacious with a large bathroom and patio. It also came equipped with a wet bar, refrigerator, and microwave. The beds were not the most comfortable and the rooms could use a bit of remodeling. All in all, not a bad place to stay, but the rooms could use some updating.

The resort was an amazing place. Very clean, very curtious, very roomy accomodations a must stay for everyone. The staff treated us like gold. I have been coming down to Myrtle Beach for 13 years and this by far was the best place I stayed.

Room Tip: choose a large room
