“Good Stay.. Despite Sandy..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We stayed at the Dayton House in late October and we were very pleased. The room was a little dated and the bathroom definitely could have been a little more clean, but it was nothing that some Clorox wipes couldn't take care of. The beds were comfy and we had a great view from the seventh floor. The in room safe required a key which was easily obtained from the front desk, but if it is misplaced it is a $50 fee. The elevators were very quick this time of year. Also the pools were great and almost always never crowded. Parking is across the street in a lot and there is a small garage another street back. There are a few spots under the hotel, but those usually fill up pretty quickly. It is within walking distance of Uncle Johns restaurant. The lawn in front of the hotel is very nice with tables and yellow umbrellas making a nice place to sit and relax. The staff members were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. All in all it was a nice stay despite hurricane Sandy. We would definitely stay again!

We love the Dayton House and will always make this our choice when coming to Myrtle Beach. We have recommended to family and friends. The staff is great and the accomodations are always clean and well kept. The outside lawn area is the best and provides a great place to enjoy the beach scenes. My husband and I spent a week there in early September and absolutely loved it. We are already making plans to go back in May.

Room Tip: The suites provide additional space and the building seems to be less crowed.

This was my 1st time at Myrtle Beach. I was attending a concert at the Myrtle Beach Conversion Center and I wanted a hotel close by. I goggled and this hotel was listed in my search. I liked the idea that the hotel was family owned. Check-in was a breeze and the staff was very helpful answering my questions. I stayed in the Queen Suite with a view and I was very happy with the room. I was on the 14th floor and the view was magnificent from both, the bedroom and living room. We were able to hear the surf from our room. The living room had the wall bed (wasn't sure how comfortable this was going to be) I was very surprise it was very soft and comfortable. The room was very clean and quite. The grounds where well taken care of. I am planning on going back to Myrtle Beach next year and will definitely be staying at the Dayton House Resort again.

We planned an eleven day vacation September 12-23, 2012. This a time when friends gather together from all over the United States for fun and fellowship and of course some good seafood. We have been guest at the Dayton House for twenty plus years. We always get an ocean front effiency. We love sitting on the balcony in the early morning drinking coffee and watching beautiful sunrises. The facility is well kept and the entire staff is to be commended. If we can't get reservations there we stay at home. It truly is our home away from home.

Room Tip: We love the rooms in the South building!

We have gone once or twice a year for many years and just love Dayton House. It is located in the middle of everything there is to do at Myrtle Beach. We always get an ocean front suite and it is so nice and peaceful - we go home truly rested. The ocean view is so beautiful and you can hear the surf from the room. The entire staff is so pleasant and helpful I can't wait to go back!

We have been going to Myrtle Beach and staying at the Dayton House on family vacations for over 30 years! The resort grounds are beautiful and so well maintained. We just love the relaxing atmosphere! Some of the rooms are a little dated but they are in the process of updating and making some really nice improvements.
The only disapointment we had during our Sept. 2012 visit was that the Dayton House had taken ownership of Uncle Johns Restaurant and did away with the breakfast bar :(
Another great thing about the Dayton House is that is so close to everything! Especially Broadway on the Beach!

Room Tip: We have stayed in all of the ocean front buildings and our favorite is the North Building, ocean fro...

It was our first time to Myrtle Beach , already trying to plan the next trip back. We went in September and it wasn't crowded , room was very nice, we were on the 9th floor great ocean view. Hotel was very clean, staff was always helpful, even had a guest appreciation hour with free beer, wine and pizza one evening . Seen the staff cleaning all the pools and lazy river every morning , lovely beach out front, would not hesitate to go back and stay there again.
