“A nice budget hotel.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice hotel if ur on a budget. The hotel is old but its kept up nicely. We stay in a double bed effiency. The view from the 10th floor was amazing! We woke up to dolphins swimming near the beach. The outdoor pool was nice, but didn't use much after someone popped in it. The indoor pool was great.
The elevators were slow, but not any inconvience. The maid service was not good, one would think that u ask them to come in to clean they would, but they only seemed to manage to take out the trash and bring new towels. We have a small child so there was food crumbs every where, but I guess the cleaning staff figured we should clean up after ourselves.
The beds are small and very uncomfortable, we could not get a good night sleep at all. The air conditioner also did not work well, we tried to set it on 60 but woke up sweating every mourning. We would have left the sliding glass door open at night if there was a screen for it.
All in all it was not a good stay for us, but it was the right price for the money.

I would like to tell anyone that is going to Myrtle Beach with a family that the Caravelle Resort is a nice place to stay. When searching for a place to take the family that had a seperate bedroom for us and a bed for the girls it was hard when all the prices were extremely high.. We will stay again at the Caravelle Resort.

Room Tip: We had ocean view and it was great only complaint is that the elevator was slow, so get a bottom flo...

We spent 20 years of family vacations here. The location makes it quieter than being right downtown. Very family oriented. We like the condos they manage next door to the hotel too.
The main hotel was recently renovated and the rooms are pleasant with on site kitchens in the rooms.
One year,we had a noisy party in the room next door and the management offered us another better room at the same price,helped us pack and move and sent up a fruit basket!
The managers go out of the way to make your stay enjoyable.
We liked the breakfast buffet in their restaurant too and they have both outdoor and indoor pools.

Room Tip: Get a room in the center upper floors of the main hotel but away from the indoor pool(unless you wan...

My daughters and I stayed at Caravelle for the first time on this spring break.
The room was nice. Our room was directly in from of the "oceanfront rooms" elevators and we didn't hear traffic nor doors opening and closing all night. There is much talk about slow elevators but we quickly learned that the elevators that serve the parking garage are slower than the ones we used....more often. We stayed on the 15th floor (amazing view of North to South Myrtle Beach....you can even see the Skywheel which saved us money because we didn't have to go on.
The pools were nice, towel service at the pool, very nice.
The rooms had nice dish and cookware for use to cook, which saved us $$$.
THE PRICE- was wonderful. I booked one of their spring break specials and I was very pleased with all the amenities for that price.
LOCATION- Wonderfully Convenient to everything. We drove a few miles to barefoot, broadway, and grand strand all in a matter of minutes. I didn't spend/use much gas at all. Food Lion, Walmart, and Kroger for groceries; and CVS one block away.
AMBIANCE- Family friendly. Very Family oriented.

Room Tip: The Ocean View Rooms are truly worth it.

My family of 4 spent spring break at the Caravelle (Apr.1-8) and it was our first visit here. We got a great deal (paid for 5, got 2 free). The first two days one set of elevators was broken and maint was working on it. Yes, we had to go without hot water for ONE day but that didn't ruin our vacation. Yes, they need more elevators, even when they all work. Wait times were a bit long since we were on the 12th floor but, again, that didn't ruin our vacation. Next time I would stay in a room on a lower floor. The parking garage is a tight fit but that is the way most of them are at the beach. The only REAL complaint I have is housekeeping was really lacking and inconsistent. If they did show up, they usually made the beds, emptied the trash and that was it. I only received coffee when I asked for it. Rarely was the floor vacuumed. I mentioned this on a survey and have already received an email stating it would be addressed. The fire alarm was also pulled on our 2nd night there but that was hardly the fault of the hotel. How can they be held responsible for what a customer does? That can happen anywhere.

The positive notes are these: ALL the staff were very polite and friendly. The room was extremely clean and had been remodeled recently. The pool area was cleaned every AM and was in good working order. We had an "ocean view" room and still had a great view of the ocean from our balcony. The pool area was crowded and filled with lively kids during most of our stay. Since The Saint John's Inn is part of the Caravelle, we used their pool and hot tub. Much quieter and only across the street. There are also several other pools and hot tubs to choose from. I love staying in the North end because it is quieter and traffic is less.

There were negative issues with our stay but nothing that would ruin our vacation. We made it to the beach and back safely and had an awesome time there. I would certainly stay again, especially if I can find another deal like I did this time. Overall, the Caravelle is an awesome resort.

My family and I stayed at Caravelle Resort's Sea Mark Tower in their nonOceanview 3BR Condo and didn't know what to expect. However, the views were BEAUTIFUL! From our balcony, we had spectacular views of the landscape, city skyline and the breath-taking views of the ocean. The condo was very spacious, well-kept with comfortable beds. The Caravelle Resort amenities are endless with a restaurant, fitness room, spa, ice cream palor, game room, variety of pool layouts and many more that we enjoyed. I can't wait to book our next beach vacation with Caravelle Resort.
