“Great Place for a Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2006

We stayed at Ocean Creek during Aug 1-4, 2006 and had a great time. We had a one-bedroom Lodge Villa accomodation which was roomy, very clean, and very nicely furnished. Maid service was good and front desk staff very friendly. There was a large (uncrowded) pool right behind our villa and a short walk took us to the beach. We would most definitely stay here again. When I read some of the bad reviews of Ocean Creek, it makes me wonder if we're all talking about the same place!

I booked a condo for a week, paid the booking fee, then cancelled except for one night as it was non-refundable after a certain date. I cancelled because after reading a few reviews I got nervous but figured hey check it out for one night as we weren't getting our money back anyway...how bad could it be for $300 a night? When we checked in they gave us a room that I wouldn't put my worst enemy in...the toilet seat had alligatored paint, the balcony had unsafe railings, the carpet was stained, the furniture had holes and it was in general "joke" condition. How they could rent this for to me is hard to conceive. The people at the front desk must never look at the condos. I must admit the alligatored paint toilet seat almost threw me over the edge...beyond gross. How that could ever be cleaned is beyond me.

The staff at the front was not very pleasant either...maybe because they were real busy..but that is no excuse. They let us look at an ocean view room after complaining about the condition and it was better but not great either. We decided we didn't want to stay here even if they gave us the room...so we headed back to Kingston, Embassy Suites Resort and extended our stay there an extra day....a much better place I would recommend. In their defense, Ocean Creek gladly refunded our money since we were only down to a one night stay and at that point I don't think they wanted a scene at the front desk. Perhaps there are individual owners who take pride in their units and keep them updated...but be wary of the ones they rent out from the front desk. Where is the owners association here? I'll never go back...and rate this place a 1/4 out of 5

My family stayed in a two bedroom/2 bath condo. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms, the balcony was huge and the view was gorgeous-we stayed in the penthouse. However, the room was very outdated, the furntiure was old (but clean), the mattresses and beds were uncomfortable (we bought our own blankets once we got there), the tvs were from the 1980s. The condo was very clean so we didn't let the other stuff bother us too much. The resort itself is gorgeous, the grounds are expansive and there are trees and nice landscaping. The beach is uncrowded and there is an inlet that runs between the hotel and the beach when the tide is in, perfect for finding sea creatures such as hermit crabs. There is the beach club pool which is nice and they have daily kids activities. Each hotel has their own pool as well. I would stay here again if I booked through an owner and could see the room before I booked. The staff is friendly and the housekeeping is great-they even load the dishwasher for you if there are dishes in the sink!!!

We recently stayed at Ocean Creek. I agree with those that say it is amazing. At the same time, however, I must advise those with small children to be very watchful, especially if staying in the North Tower. The bars on the balcony are horizontal with at least five inches of space in between each. We have a four year old and 8month old and we were terrified of turning our backs for even a second. For a place that advertises a family getaway, we were not impressed with the design of the North Tower condo balconies.

Just got back from Ocean Creek Resort, and enjoyed every second. Check-in was quick and easy. Our room was a simple studio, one bath. More than enough for my wife a me. The resort is covered in trees which makes almost feel like your at a mountain resort. The beach was only a short walk from our lodge. We also had a pool right outside our door. I've stayed in numerous hotels and resorts around the world. And for the price this one cant be beat.
Also, use google earth to get a better view of the property.

Ocean Creek Resort was recommended by an acquaintance of ours but unfortunately we did not know about the variance in the conditions of the rooms. We had heard that the South Tower is better in general but it was full so we were booked a 2 BR/2bath condo in North Tower (B-12 to be exact).

Ocean Creek is in a great location in North Myrtle Beach and I would stay in that area again but not necessarily in Ocean Creek unless we know a condo owner with a nice unit. The condo (again B-12 North Tower) was dated and had below average mattresses and bedding (that cheap thin polyester motel crap). The carpeting was worn and the unit was decorated in 80's colors. The wallpaper was coming off in the master bath and you could tell that its installation was done carelessly. It was extremely difficult to open the sliding glass door from the LR to the balcony. The view was fine - no trailer park! Most importantly, the room was NOT very clean. It needed vacuuming and dusting. Luckily, someone brought some disinfectant spray for the bath fixtures. The tub spout clearly still had soap scum on it so we cleaned it ourselves. YUK! The kitchen was adequate but had dated appliances which was OK. The a/c was fine. We voiced our concerns upon check-out but no one seemed to care.

It was a quiet location which was good. The outdoor pools were nice and we did like the employees at the beach bar/cafe!

Second time visitors, we loved Ocean Creek again! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit in lodge III, overlooking the pool. Beautiful resort, beautiful beach, friendly staff, and spacious condos! No need to worry about parking if you want to visit Barefoot Landing, we literally would walk across the street and have a ton of restaurants, shops, and attractions at our disposal. Then when we wanted to get away from all the hustle of Myrtle Beach, walk back across the street and into the calm woods of the Ocean Creek Resort. No other place we have ever stayed at on the Grand Strand compares to this.

The only thing we did not know is that the condos are owned by individuals. The great thing about this is that if you are able to reserve the room of an owner that cares, then your room will be above and beyond what any normal hotel could provide. There are apparently some rooms that are not as well cared for, and all rooms are ranked on a grading scale, with the best condos being rented out first. So, the sooner you are able to book your stay in advance, the better the room you will have. Anyways, even though our room this stay didn't have a plasma screen tv, like the first time we came, it was still a great stay because of the location of the resort and the beach. We also love the ocean front beach club.
