“Very Nice hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Family visits here every year. The hotel is very nice and large. However they only have 3 elevators which are very slow. We had to carry our bags down 13 flights of stairs because all of them quit working. I do love that they have a starbucks in the hotel. It is right in the middle of the strip and is close to everything. It is about a mile from the Boardwalk with all the shops. Overall a very nice hotel but it is very pricey. We usually get the two bedroom condo with a full kitchen and it is very nice.

Balcony littery overlooks ocean; on boardwalk, few short blocks to rides. Furniture in unit had at least a weeks worth of dust, and bed sheets were not tucked in by Russian housekeeper. BUT THEN CHARMANE SHOWED UP! Housekeeper Charmane was the sweetest, knowelegable and proffessional housekeep in the world. She took care of us well. No outdoor pool was a dissapointment, but the indoor pool and small lazy river was sufficient. Only about 60 steps to the ocean, and nice foot showers before you return to hotel. No planned activities for kids, but we are spoiled. Starbucks was a plus. Elevators are terribly slow (only 3 of them in a 19 story building.) Best things are LOCATION, service from Front Desk and housekeeping's Charmane---I would request her section. Nice place!

Room Tip: Request housekeeper Charmane's section. The Russian housekeepers don't care.

Was our first trip to Myrtle Beach....researched Resorts and Hotels for weeks. Finally decided on the Bay View because of Location and Accommodations ( Family of 5 including two teenagers ).
We chose an OCEAN FRONT 2 BDRM "F" Suite. Was absolutely PERFECT. Plenty of room for all of us. Huge bonus with table & chairs off hallway which gave us extra space in living room and we could set up laptops and still have room to eat at table and the breakfast bar in kitchen.
Suite was Very Clean. Was given Suite 306 which provided a huge balcony with amazing views of ocean and people walking on Boardwalk. Expected Noise but was extremely quiet for such a huge resort full of people. We were very impressed. Only issues were a broken coffee pot and can opener...staff addressed this IMMEDIATELY and items were brought up to my suite within 10 minutes. Everyone was friendly...pool area which includes the pool, lazy river, and hot tub were all clean and not overcrowded. WiFi was OK not super fast but worked!
We appreciated the quick access to both Piers and Great Fireworks on Wednesdays.
Parking garage over one block was not a hassle and liked having our vehicle locked up safely and even better out of the sun on hot days.
Area is NOT scary nor did we EVER feel like we were in bad part of town. Never saw any bugs or pests...were not bothered by flies or mosquitos. Was perfect ... well except it got cold and rainy so we didn't get to do some of the things we had planned. Now we have to GO BACK. Wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else. Great Job Bay View Management and Staff...it Shows you all really CARE about your Guests.
Since we were only on the 3rd floor we didn't have any problems with elevators being slow because we took the stairs...really only noticed them busy during check-in and check-out times.
Even had a Fire Alarm go off while we were there...thank goodness it wasn't Real fire... and even though it was difficult to hear the announcements in the hallways...the flashing lights in our suite tipped us off right away. We were only out of our room for about 10 minutes and it was back to business as usual.
If you are considering a trip to Myrtle Beach...don't even hesitate to book your stay at Bay View...the pictures they have on their website DO NOT do this place justice...they need to put better ones online...nothing was dated in our suite and condo owner provided several bookshelves of books and DVD's for us to enjoy on the Huge Flat Screen TVs.
Thank you for a Worry Free Stay while we were in Myrtle Beach.
See You Soon.

Room Tip: Would definitely recommend a Suite if you have two or more children ... the second bedroom gave the...

This was my first time at Myrtle Beach and Bay View Resort was a wonderful choice for my stay. For me, the location was just right, parking just one short block away, the beach at my door step, far enough away from the hustle of the strip, yet close enough to walk to.
The lazy river was quite small, tailored just for children, although adults took advantage of this ammenity too. With all the water parks in the area it really didn't matter to me.
The elevators seemed to be busy most of the time, this was a bit annoying, but the beautiful room made up for this inconvenience.
Check-in was a breeze, it took no more than five minutes. Hotel staff took my belongings to my room as soon as a cart was available for them to use. They're a hot comodity upon check-in.
Overall I was very pleased and I will be Back to Bay View Resort.

I had the best time at Bay View! I loved my room, also the balcony was a plus! I've never felt more comfortable with a hotel as I did with Bay View. The parking deck was awesome! NO ONE is aloud in the deck unless you have a key. I couldn't have been more happy with that alone. It sucked having to walk just a little ways with it raining, but I'm sure I needed that SHORT walk. The elevator was alittle slow, but be mindful that this hotel has 19 floors; however, adding another couldn't hurt though. I stayed on floor 14 and I had the best vacation staying at this particular hotel. I WILL return!

Stayed at this hotel on a recent vacay to the lovely Myrtle Beach, it was beautiful! The hotel room we were in had 2 bedrooms, the master suite had an ocean view window, just gorgeous, and this room also had 2 balconies, one in each bedroom. The main balcony was an ocean front view, and we stayed on the 9th floor, so it was just a breathtaking view. The hotel is clean and has a total of 19 floors I believe. The only problem with this hotel is that the elevators were really slow, so if you're in a rush, use the stairs, or get a room on the 1st or 2nd floor, lol, they probably will fix them soon, but when we went, about 2 weeks ago, the elevators were really slow. But overall, beautiful hotel, wish I could live somewhere like this! Oh yes, another thing that was a bit inconvenient was the parking deck for this hotel was located across the street, but it was an easy crosswalk, so no big problem.

I stayed at Bay View last weekend on a girls' trip with several other ladies. We booked a 2 bedroom suite which had 1 King and 2 full beds, a full kitchen, a living and dining area and 2 balconies.

Pros: The location was pretty good. We were able to walk to several bars and restaurants and the beach area was nice. Rooms were average, yet clean and somewhat spacious. Cleaning lady, Makayla, was very sweet and provided us with towels when she wasn't even assigned to our room.

Cons: No outdoor pool. Elevators were ridiculously slow. Parking is off-site. Housekeeping tried to barge in early morning on several occasions even AFTER notifying the front desk that we did NOT want maid service at all the entire stay.

Tips: Be sure to take your hotel room keys with you for re-entry into the building, pool area and off-site parking deck. Stay on a lower floor so that you can take the stairs if need be.

Overall, I would stay here again if someone else books the trip. If I am in charge of booking, I will be staying some place else.
