“Great Location...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We have been staying at Ocean Creek for 9 years. We love the location sometimes the cleaning staff don't really do a good job but for the most part we always have a really nice time. We have been considering purchasing a condo here for sometime now. Just can't decide :(

Room Tip: Take cleaner!

A person can not beat the prices here. The studio had all the space I needed to meet my needs. The beach is a nice walk through a shady, tree filled grounds that is well kept. There is some construction, but it did not hamper my movement or my enjoyment of the complex. Plus, and this is a big plus: motorcycles allowed with trailers. Some of the places in the area treat bikers like pariahs, but OC has an area specifically for these items. And for the sake of the other guests, the bikes aren't allowed in the complex. That's OK. I can understand how some people don't like the noise. So, if you ride, you don't have to stay in a lesser quality place just because they allow bike access. And if you like quiet, the complex is large enough to accomodate you. The boardwalks at the swash are cool for walking and gazing at the ocean and local eco system around the dunes and the wash outs. Overall, OC is a great value. All lodge rooms might not be equal because the place has some age on it, but so far I have gotten lucky.

We stayed at the Ocean Creek Hotel for 2 nights. The resort is in a great location with food and shopping just across the street and beach access within walking distance pretty much everywhere on the resort. The grounds of the resort are well kept, but the room we stayed in could have used some work. We have no problem with an older place, but the comforter looked like it had not been washed in years. All of the places that should have been white on the comforter were dirty brown. The blanket on the bed also had hair on it. The sheets looked clean, so we only used those. Other than that the room was fine, just older. It had a nice balcony overlooking a pool, and was in the same building as the breakfast area (we had a free breakfast buffet included with our stay). The only thing we wish they had were outdoor hot tubs, since it was a bit chilly during our stay. They have multiple outdoor pools and an indoor pool with a very tiny hot tub, but no outdoor hot tubs.

i traveled all up and down the south coast me and my family vacationed 4 to 5 times down here a year we always like to stay at different places so we can rate them and tell our experiences , some we go back to and some were a nightmare like OCEAN CREEK.. we arrived on Thursday.. we were able to check into our rooms when we arrived which was 2:30 pm we were told that we could use all the facilitates . weather was very cold so they told us that the heated pool was next door one min away so me and my family went to the indoor pool only to be told by security guard we had to leave he was very rude so i called the front desk and no reply .. i have never stayed at a place that locks there doors at 8pm and quit time until 8am .. no music , no parties , and no one can be outside during that time.. so i guess thats because that's when all the old people go to bed , this was my worst visit to the coast and i will not ever stay at ocean creek again , there advertisements are nothing but lies.. there nothing good about staying here unless you are about in your 70s.. we didn't see no young people here at all and not a place for young family who likes to sit out at there balaconys at night and listening to the ocean at night but you can't do that here because of quit time..and you can't order anything to be deliveried here either! like pizzas because they lock the door at 8pm . NOT A PLACE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE!

We normally stay in Myrtle Beach and the resort we stay at and love was booked full so we decided to give the north end a try and selected Ocean Creek for its location. What a horrible mistake! The management at this property does not have a clue how to treat people and the employees follow this bad example. Here's a tip Ocean Creek, hire real hoteliers that understand service and to treat people.
I am use to being treated as if I am appreciated and welcome when staying at nice hotels and resorts. This was far from it and I learned a lesson I hope not to ever repeat. Do yourself a favor and skip right past Ocean Creek, you will be glad you did. If you have a problem and I'm betting after all that we had go wrong you will to, you will not be pleased with the lack of caring and incompetent management. No way, never ever again!

Room Tip: Run away! Check the room first if not right demand a refund and maybe if you're nice they will g...

Stayed here a few years ago and had a bad experience. Thought we'd try it again. Bad idea. Check in is at 4:00 but don't expect to get in a room at that time. We went to check in and ended up waiting till nearly 6 pm and still didn't have a room. We were sent to a room that was still being cleaned and had to sit in the parking lot waiting on housekeeping to finish. When we talked to the manager about getting another room we were given the run around. It was not a "sold out" weekend and there were plenty of other rooms available. Why would they put their guests through that? After a few rounds with the manager, we were finally given another room.

We have stayed here before and enjoy the many pools, the 2 and 3 bedroom villas, and beautiful grounds, but the rooms haven't been updated in years. Furnishings are old and outdated. Putting a small flat screen TV on the wall with exposed wires and cords doesn't make it updated!

Upon check out, we worried that we may have left an item in our room. Called and talked to housekeeping but no one ever made the effort to call me back. I called a second time and left a message. No one bothered to return my call.

Obviously the staff from the manager down to housekeeping are not concerned about their guests or committed to making your vacation a pleasant one. Changes are needed in customer service and management. We will go elsewhere next time.

Have been going to Ocean Creek for over 20 years, have never been disappointed. This year was especially nice in that we requested south side of the south tower and stayed there. Staff is more like old friends than staff. Food is really, really good, wished The Four Seasons was open more. We could not believe all the improvements made to the landscaping, just beautyful.

Room Tip: No tips, I am going to be selfish, they might get one of the rooms we like!!! Although there are...
