“DAYTON HOUSE - THEY DO IT RIGHT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2009

The owners/operators of the Dayton House definately know how to help make a vacation GREAT!!! I can't believe we've been visiting Myrtle Beach for 22 yrs. and have just now found the Dayton House. The staff members are excellent - they seem to be happy doing their job, unlike other places where the staff act like they wish you would not bother them.
The entire resort is basically spotless - other than a brand new facility, this place has to be the cleanest anywhere on the Grand Strand. Our accomadations were perfect for 4 adults - one bedroom with a queen size bed and a murphy bed in the living room. The balcony could be accessed from the living room or the bedroom - what a nice touch!!!
The pools are sparkling clean and the water temp. was perfect. We all loved the walk-in pool - another wonderful touch and different from any place we've stayed on the Strand. The hot tubs were just that - HOT - but not scorching - you could actually relax in them with cringing your teeth from the heat of the water. Another nice and relaxing touch are the "porch" swings out on the massive lawn; so nice to swing and watch the ocean after a full day of fun.
Again, the Dayton House is GREAT!!! I really can't understand why (at this moment) this property is not in the top 10. If you want a CLEAN resort with plenty of ammenities and staff members who help assist you with a smile on their face - this is the place!!!!

Dayton House makes the most of what they have. Not the newest hotel - but they maintain it very well. Stayed three nights after Memorial Day - oceanfront room in South Building; 9th floor. Great view. The fridge and kitchen came in handy. Nice pools and hot tubs. Plenty of area to relax in front of the beach.

They seem to have plenty of staff cleaning and maintaining. I also had no trouble calling to make a reservation or double-checking it just before I arrived.

I was unsure about wireless Internet. I didn't bring my computer, but they had a couple of computers in the main office you could use to check e-mail and such. I never waited to use one.

My family and I have stayed at the Dayton House since 1998. Quality service from all the staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Very aforable with great amenities. The pools and the lazy river are wonderful. You have a great grass area with umbrellas and lounge chairs to relax or just a few steps to the beach. Dayton House is close to the down town but not in the beach traffic. The staff, from check in to check out is there for you.All staff members are friendly and are ready to make you stay a pleasent one. We have stayed in many differnt rooms and can say, there is always a good view. We have been staying about 3 times a year, and will not stay anywhere else. Try the Dayton House. You will love it. You will have the time of your life.

Just got back from bike week and I loved this place. The rooms were so crapy that you could not tell that we trashed it even more. Everyone was in and out of our room and plenty of people around who would rather fight you then to look at you. My kind of people.

It was great how everyone who came near the hotel got pelted with water ballons and what ever was not tied down in the hotel room.

I guess this is the last year for bike week but we made it a great one!!!

This was the first time my family stayed and loved it. My 2 girls want to go back. We love the many pools they have and everything is so convenient. The aquarium and children's museum are not far from hotel. The staff were so nice. Rooms are not updated but it was very clean. Great Family hotel. Will stay at this hotel again!

The hotel is adequate and I consider it a great value. The staff is friendly and maid service efficient. Pools and facility in general are clean and well maintained. Relaxing under the umbrella's was very enjoyable however, caution is due. The area is located next to a public right of way leading to the beach so be aware when taking valuables to the lawn/table area. As we sat reading with our backs to our table, a man came up from the beach and stole our bag containing valuables. So be alert, theives may be lurking.
Other than this unfortunate occurance it was a great, relaxing place to stay. This hotel is very quiet and geared toward mature adults. I would not recommend it to younger couples looking for a lively crowd.

The location of this "motel" is great! I didnt pay over $60.00 a night, and very glad that I didnt! It is great for a family on a budget who will stay on the beach for a number of days, but not for a choosy traveler who prefers a more modern hotel. The outdated furnishings didnt bother me, but the standing water that surrounded my feet as I showered most certainly did! Loved the microwave, large fridge and stove. The room was clean, but smelled dank. Great view of the beach, and friendly staff.
