“The best place on the beach !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

We have stayed at the Anderson several times. It is the cleanest, nicest hotel on the beach. It is centrally located and an easy walk to the boardwalk. The staff is very nice. The first time we stayed it was buy a night / get a night free, the next time it was "free breakfast across the street each morning". I notice now that the freebies are a thing of the past, (except for free putt putt all day long across the street) but we wait for the rates to go down and we take our own breakfast. We can make these small sacrifices for the quality of the hotel. It is very quiet, a wonderful bed and we really felt like we were more in a condo than a hotel. Would have liked a free upgrade to ocean front from ocean view, but again, freebies are far and few between now. We love the Anderson and highly recommend it!!

The Anderson Ocean Club resort hotel was clean and easy to locate off Kings Hwy. The hotel is nicely decorated outside as well as inside. Totally equipped kitchen was a plus. The hotel staff was friendly and check in was fast. There is convienent free parking across the street with ample amount of spaces.. The oceanview from the room was magnificent. The amenities are great (pool,jacuzzi) I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suite had good views and was enough space for two.

My family and I have stayed here every yr. Every year we have had no complaints till now. The room we checked into had stains all over the furniture and the blinds were broken and just left there. We asked for a room change and the room conditions were the same. Stains all over and the blinds broken again! The internet is very slow as well! It's a shame this hotel has gone so down hill. We will not be returning back.

Room Tip: If your looking for something clean than don't stay here! We wont be anymore

My husband, myself and my daughter just came by from a 5 day vacation in Myrtle Beach. We stayed at Anderson Ocean Club and was not disappointed. My mother, father and niece also accompanied us on our trip.

We stayed in room 1704 (17th floor) in one of the 3 bedroom suites. It was roomy and nicely decorated. Two of the bedrooms are at opposites side of the front door as you enter. Both had their own full bathroom. The one bedroom was larger with 2 queen beds and the other had a full and twin bed. Each room had its own flat screen television with limited cable selection. The only strange thing about each of the front bedrooms was that they had a window that looked into the hall. The window wasn't a bother, but it was completely useless.

The master bedroom was toward the back of the suite and had sliding glass doors that exited onto the balcony facing the ocean, which was a nice feature. The master bedroom was the smallest of the three bedrooms, but had plenty of room for a couple. It also had its own full bathroom and a flat screen tv with limited cable selections.

One note about the bathrooms, the tub in the type where it is quite shallow so, if you are tall (as I am), you have to duck to fit under the showerhead.

The main living area has a combined open kitchen, dining and living room area. This may sound cramped or congested, but it was more than adequate in size. The kitchen was updated and looked classy. It contains access to a full fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, oven and sink. There is a full dining room table that seats 6. The living room has a couch, 2 arm chairs, 2 end tables and a coffee table. There is a flat screen with limited cable in the living room on top of a hatch contianing the safe. There are large sliding glass doors off of teh living room that lead onto the balcony.

The suite contains a washer and dryer tucked inside a hall closet.

The balcony gave a clear and perfect view of the beach and ocean. The balcony contained 6 chairs and two end tables. It was very spacious.

The hotel itself was clean and finely decorated. The pool area had 2 larger pools (none diving). There were also 2 smaller size kid sized pools, which was a nice touch for someone who has a 2 yr. old. They also have 2 hot tubs and a lazy river. When the temperature dips, 1 kiddie pool, 1 large pool and 1 hot tub are in an area that can be enclosed. There were plenty of chairs around the pool for reclining. There was also a stand to get towels.

We used the bar by the pool and the frozen drinks were delicious. Just make sure you bring cash because they do not take credit cards at the bar.

The lobby has a Starbucks, but it has a limited menu and closes at 9 pm.

The hotel had a walkway to the beach, which is very convenient. When you return from the beach, they have two areas to wash off the sand.

Our room came with multiple parking passes so that was convenient. Please note that the parking garage is a block down, but there are area to unload and load at the hotel.

Your stay comes with free golf at their mini golf course across the street, but you need to utilize it before 7 pm. After 7 pm they charge you a discounted rate.

Supposedly during the peak season, you get free access to a water park. We cannot comment on that because it is now technically the off season.

We ate at their affiliated restaurant the Magnola which is across teh street. It was just okay. If you like buffets, you may prefer it more than I did. I am not a buffet fan and really wanted to have a regular sit down meal. The prices were fair though.

My only caution is that upon arrival, they will offer a free welcome gift. Be warned, you have to sit through a timeshare hard sell to get the free gift. We passed on the free gift and saved ourselves 2 hours of our life.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean.

Hilton took over this property less than a year ago. The property was not totally to the HGV specs but they have begun to remodel and update.
Right on the beach, nice furnishings, well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, good view. Staff was more than helpful, although they almost missed their mid week maid service and we had to remind them. Would love to go back once they upgrade the common pool/spa/beach/bar area. That *lazy river* is more a lazy U-turn. Hilton can do SO much better!
But will definitely return!

Room Tip: We had an ocean view not ocean front. The room was delightful but no direct view of ocean and small...

Anderson Hilton was a great place to stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom with another couple. The rooms were lovely. The beds are so comfy! The view, beach and pools 4/Jacuzzi s 2 are fantastic. This hotel has the most helpful staff. They are willing to go out of their way to provide an extra special stay. We asked for additional towels at the front desk. They were brought to our room within minutes. Everyone is friendly and smiling. It matters! I am told Hilton will soon be doing additional upgrade work on the pools/patios. Keep it up Hilton we love your style!

Room Tip: Ocean front on the sides have nice patios.

We came to celebrate our 35thwedding anniversary, LOVED valet Christopher, he was a hoot, the ocean view room awesome slept in the Murphy Bed to hear the waves, our daughter From GA wanted to send a gift was sad because the male at the resort was not helpful at all, the initial woman she spoke with was very nice too bad she could not complete, only complaint was found lipstick on several cups & glasses, YUCK, was coffee and chocolate on lamp we did not dirty, and called front desk only to wait too long and hung up so as not to disturb our "35th Honeymoon" loved the ocean view. We had ZERO interest in the timeshare it was an anniversary getaway!
