“A nice place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I decided to stay at The Dayton House during a short business trip in late December, based on Trip Advisor and Hotel.Com reviews. I had a direct ocean front efficiency that looked out over their bright green lawn with palmetto trees, to a sandy beach complete with those little wood slat sand barrier fences and lots of crashing waves underneath a cloudy sky. The water looked so clean and clear! Too bad it was so cold outside!! This place has several buildings, and the atmosphere is very nice and friendly. I met a few snowbirds from Canada who are repeat visitors. The location was very convenient to everything...far enough from the hubbub of downtown Myrtle Beach yet still close enough to walk to almost anything you would need, including a PIggly Wiggly grocery store and the new boardwalk and sky wheel. (It's a long walk, don't kid yourself, but it's walk-able.) The one thing that was disappointing was the annoying $10 "resort fee" tacked onto my room rate. Resort fee for what? OK I suppose they need to keep the heat in the hot tub turned on, but believe me there was nobody swimming in those outdoor pools!! The fitness center is located 1.5 blocks behind the hotel and it looked nicely equipped and smelled nice and clean, although I didn't use it...decided to go for a run instead! All in all, I liked this place and would come here again.

Room Tip: I recommend to people to select a direct ocean front room. I know they cost more, but not only is th...

My husband and two daughters stayed at Dayton House in November and even though we arrived early, they still accomodated us! Thanks to the great staff who helped us. The room was very clean and spacious as well. My husband and kids enjoyed the pool and I very much enjoyed the hot tub.

My wife and I have stressful jobs in education. We love our jobs, but it is so nice to get away. We have never taken a vacation in October as this is during the school year but we decided we just needed to get away. What a great decision it was. We loved relaxing by the pool. And, in October, we were delighted to be able to swim outdoors. We live in Frederick, Maryland. Swimming in October outdoors does not happen in Maryland.

We also love to read. During the school year there just isn't enough time to devote to our reading passion. On this trip we enjoyed reading by the pool or out by the ocean. We also loved reading on the balcony.

Sleeping in was great but we always went to Uncle John's for breakfast. You can get the best breakfast there and at prices found in your hometown. The waitress staff was all excellent. They are all so happy to take care of you.

We caught several entertaining acts while at Myrtle Beach. We loved the Pirate show and One, the show. We also enjoyed the comedy club that we went too.

It was such a treat to rest, read, eat, and enjoy shows. The view from the oceanfront room was wonderful. We really hated to leave. Every day since we have been there I get on the Myrtle Beach Earthcam to check on conditions at the beach. You can see the vacationers walk by and you can hear the ocean. I take time out of my busy day to visit the website and it has a calming effect on me. I can't wait to get back to the Dayton House.

For the last three years, we have spent parts of October and November, then January and February at The Dayton House, so now it is becoming our home away from home during the cold weather in the north. The staff, the accommodations, the location, the cleanliness, the beautiful beach ---- everything is top notch. Since we do almost all of our meals in-suite, the kitchen is of utmost importance to us, and it certainly fills all of our needs. Because we are retired and are careful with our funds, we appreciate that The Dayton House is also reasonably priced when we prefer to visit during the off-season. We never dreamed that we could spend part of our retirement in such a wonderful hotel, so we feel very fortunate to have found The Dayton House. Yes, we do love retirement!

We have been staying at the Dayton House for at least 15 years. We would stay no where else. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The Dayton House is convenient to Coastal Grand Mall, Broadway at the Beach, restaurants, and various other attractions. I love to walk to the Pavalion from the Dayton House and the new boardwalk is just great! For your money, you can find no other accomodating hotel as the Dayton House!

For third year stayed at the Dayton House to attend the Bluegrass Festival at the Convention Centre. We have an angleview king efficiency in the South Building on the 7th floor and the view of the surrounding areas is great. We leave our vehicle and walk to the convention centre so parking is not a problem late at night. Everything we need is within walking distance. All staff we had dealings with were friendly and helpful, we would not stay anywhere else, will be back again next November. This hotel offers an excellent package for the bluegrass festival

Room Tip: Have stayed in the same room so cannot comment on the other buildings but I am sure they are all as...

We were in Myrtle Beach for a trade fair and stayed at the Dayton House mainly for the location plus the price...the room was great ..good beds, clean room & bathroom..nice kitchenette we didn't use but was nice to have fridge & coffee maker plus enough coffee to make 4 cups a day.
we had a angle view room but could see the beach from the bed and the balcony was great..faced west so got afternoon sun which was great on a 70 degree day..but maybe not in summer!..there was about 6 non handicapped parking spaces under building and more across the street but we always seemed to the the last close one each time we came back.
We had a 9th floor room which let us see the beach over the nextdoor bldg...all of this for $44 a night too.

Room Tip: get a room on a higher floor in either the North or South tower for best view of beach
