“Awesome room for the money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

We pricelined this room for two nights over looking the ocean. Nice room, mini kitchen, and dishware was included. Utensils, pots and pans. It was right off the ocean. Beautiful. Will stay here again next year.

This was our second trip to The Dayton House, and we weren't disappointed! Since we live in Maine, we depend a lot on TripAdvisor reviews when making reservations, (who wants to drive 1,000 miles to realize you made a mistake?) and we chose The Dayton House again. The location is great, Broadway at the Beach is close by, as is the Boardwalk. And of course, the beach!
Dayton House has several pools to choose from,as well as hot tubs and a lazy river. You could see the maintenance crew cleaning the pools and caring for the lawn every morning from our balcony. We stayed in the Suites building, on the 15th floor. Our housekeeper, Dorothy, was helpful and pleasant, as were all the staff we encountered. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/utensils/plates, etc. There was also a toaster and coffee maker. The only thing I wished for was a broom - despite our best efforts we brought back a lot of sand. (Our travel party consisted of my husband, myself, and our three boys - 13,11 & 4.)
If we had anything to complain about, it would be the guests who apparently weren't able to read the signs regarding horseplay, or the guests who took a vacation from watching their kids, too. That was the only negative to a pretty positive experience.

We stayed in this resort over a weekend and had a wonderful time with family. It's a big resort split in 3 buildings. It offers complimentary parking. Resort has got 2 swimming pools and one of them starts with 0 feet so that your little one can also enjoy it. Couple if Jacuzzi's and lazy river offers good relaxation. Resort has got plenty of beach chairs where you can relax.
Rooms are clean, big and has everything that family needs. Even the ocean side view rooms offer great views.
The place is close to many restaurants and attractions which makes the perfect experience.

I'm very skeptical of places that are lower cost than every where else that is around them along with having availability when no where else does. We wanted one night in Myrtle Beach and was having a difficult time finding something reasonable or for just one night. The Dayton House was available.

The parking is difficult, but check in was smooth and we made it to the room easily. The hallways are probably the worst looking part of the whole resort, they are dingy, dirty and had a bad smell lingering in ours by the elevator.

I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the room, two queen beds, a kitchenette, fridge, etc. We had an ocean view. The room was clean, could use some updating but not bad. I would totally stay here again. The beach access is great, pools were decent and the bar had a nice selection of drinks.

We booked a month at the winter monthly rates and had a wonderful stay. We were here for the month of November 2013 and they kept the large outdoor pool heated for the whole time. The Indoor Pool and also the Indoor/outdoor pools were also heated. I got to use the fitness center every day for exercise as well. The Staff are very friendly at all times. We had a 2 room suite with a great view of the ocean.

Room Tip: The end suites are great with King size beds and lots of room.

This was the worst place my family has ever stayed. I don't think it is any worse/better than all of the "hotels" on this strip.

Yes rooms are dated but that's not the problem at all. Clean would not describe this place. When Mr. Cockroach made an unwelcomed appearance on our balcony, that's when I became a hotel snob. Not a staff member in sight the entire 5 days. Maids were unfriendly and gone by 2:30 everyday. No security whatsoever in any of the buildings - and around this place, security should be a top priority. The halls to your rooms were at least 150 degrees on average. No a/c in the beat up elevators. A positive note - we had an oceanfront suite and the view was fabulous.

Dayton has partnered up with John's Family restaurant across the street - smelled like urine, not an amenity. Ocean is loaded with jellyfish. Swim at your own risk. Dirty sand is so hot it literally blisters your feet. If you notice, everyone is doing the Baywatch run into the ocean - that's why. Ciggarette butts everywhere!! Pools are scary piss warm. Beach had sewerage looking pipes dumping water back into the ocean. A storm came the last day and black water was pouring out of them into the ocean. Disgusting to see.

Broadway on the Beach was our only saving grace. Restaurants, shops, mini-golf, attractions and people were great there. The area of downtown Myrtle is not nice and not family friendly at all. It makes Vegas look like Disneyworld.
