“Dayton house hospitality rocks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This is our first time staying here. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back. This is an older hotel, but it was nice and clean. The people who worked here are really customer oriented. They were so nice and friendly and helpful. We came to the area for our 21st wedding anniversary . Our room had a nice view of the ocean which we loved. We also enjoyed the sauna and hot tub . Next year we will stay here again. This is the third year in a row that we have come to this area . Good job. Dayton house.
One thing to add, they should break ties with the restaurant Uncle Johns. We did not enjoy the food. Breakfast was omelettes, and the were really dry and bad cheese overpowered the eggs. Skip it

Stayed here for 2 nights in late October as part of a South Carolina trip. When we arrived before 1pm and went to check in the front desk clerk was very accomodating and allowed us to check in early as another room the same as the one we had booked was available.
We stayed in the north tower on about the 5th floor in an ocean front room. I would pay the extra money to stay in an ocean front room as the view is quite nice and you get to see the sunrise and hear the ocean waves. The rooms do need to be refreshed by being updated but are adequate and have a full fridge, sink, microwave and stove. We stayed in a 2 double bed room, it said queen but the beds seemed smaller. Single king beds are not available for the oceanfront views in the north and south towers and are only available in the middle office building which overlooks the large pool and wouldnt give you as nice of an ocean front view as the towers do as they are taller.
The only real negative was the beds in our room. They seemed to be worn out and lacked the support they once had. They are probably older and need to be replaced because of all the hotels we slept in on our vacation these beds were the worst.
Other then that the stay was nice. The place wasnt very crowded like it is in the summer and we were able to enjoy the beach, going into the ocean and the heated pools at the hotel. This location is ideal if you dont need to be right in the heart of all the activity in Myrtle Beach. Its a nice location because you are close to Broadway at the Beach and are closer to North Myrtle where there is more shopping.
All in all, I would recommend staying here as the staff, location and amenities are great.

My husband and I decided to take a trip to the beach during Christmas of 2012. We had an oceanfront room that was very clean and neat. A beautiful view of the beach and the ocean. The staff (front desk and cleaning) were wonderful in every way. The front desk staff gave us a list of places open on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We had stayed here before and would stay again. Uncle John's restaurant has great breakfast food which is reasonable and convenient. A great trip thanks to Dayton House.

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!
