“A Bachelorette Weekend to Remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We rented a two bedroom to bath suite for a long weekend and it was perfect! Our 8 person party fit great in the space and the help was more than gracious! I would highly recommend this resort to any visitor of Myrtle Beach. It is conveniently located near the airport, boardwalk and is right on the beach. The pools were where all the families hung out so we stuck to the beach!

Room Tip: The elevators are slow so I would do a lower floor.

Room is nice enough, but we were horrified to find out that our 1 1/2 year old could fit through the guard rails on our oceanfront balcony!! Also, there is a big problem with MOLD on the floor boards in the bathroom and all around under the lip of the bathroom sink. Other than that, it's just a basic, standard room. We used our free night stay that we earned during the summer promotional, so we can't complain too much (except that it still cost us $30 in taxes!!). We would never choose to come here for a beach holiday. Edisto Island is much more our style because it's family friendly and without all these horrendous high rise hotels.

Dear Valued Guest,

I regret any short comings you experienced during your recent stay with us. I assure you this was not an accurate reflection of our hotel or its operation. We will review your housekeeping issues with the staff directly for future reference.

The hotel was designed and constructed within all local codes including the balcony railings. As a parent, I share your concerns of child safety and would never allow this to be sacrificed or minimized.

We would certainly enjoy an opportunity to redeem your business should you have a change of heart in the future.

This was our frist stay here for 8 people great place lots of room.We used the kitchen to cook breakfast since we didnt buy breakfast at the resturant but i heard it is really great and tastes good too. The suite was really clean and nice. WE stayed 3 nights lots of space. We had an oceanfront view. The only problem we had was that the toliet didnt want to flush but at the end they fixed it. Love it would come back again. The children love the pools they had and the ice cream bar they had. Many of us went to us the fitness room great place

This was our 2nd stay and we were very pleased with the experience. The views are great and the staff responded quickly to the little issues that we raised. There were a couple of minor issues like a broken closet door and toilet lever, but they were quickly addressed. And really people...just because it's a hotel doesn't give you the right to trash it.
The view was awesome, the suite spacious, all appliances worked, the price (we booked early) about 30% cheaper than we paid last year.

This was our first time in Myrtle Beach. We stayed at the Best Western Carolinian in a two bedroom with ocean front view from July 21 - 28th for a dance convention. We did not know what to expect when we booked the room, but as soon as we got into our room and saw the ocean front view, we fell in love with the place and Myrtle Beach. The room had two bathrooms, two big bedrooms, a nice living room/dining area, a spacious kitchen and two balconies. The view was amazing. The staff was very helpful and accommodating to all of our needs. They offered free breakfast and water park access. Those were added extras which we loved. The Oceana savings card, which they gave us at check in, gave us many discounts on stores and restaurants throughout our trip. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who was looking for a ocean front hotel with a good value.

The room was nice and clean. We stayed in the hotel with an ocean view. I was a little disappointed in the ocean view, until I stepped out unto the balcony and saw the ocean.
The breezes and the sound of the ocean waves, put you in a relaxing stay on mine.
We had to call down for towels the entire length of our stay. We did receive the Free breakfast
coupons and a $1.00 off coupon for our son. The pool area was nice, the lazy river was OK.
The beds was very comfortable. Their were coupon books offering discounts to many area
restaurants, attractions , and shops. The elevator in the hotel is SLOW. They need to update
the elevator. The staff was very helpful.

My first time in Myrtle Beach and I stayed at the Best Western Plus. Nice hotel; but it appears they are turning into a condo/hotel since they ask for you to go on a tour. Other than that the hotel stay was average. On the other hand there was a maintenance man named Chris. He was awesome in fact he provided all the information we needed to get around Myrtle Beach including the best places to eat and places to visit. In fact he provided more information than the front desk staff. If it wasnt for Chris (by the way we never used him for maintenance) we would have probably had to spend money in places and eateries that would have been substandard.
He also asked how did we enjoy our outings.
Chris was also the one who informed us that Starbucks was next door and that as guests at Bestwestern we were able to use the faciliities of the Resort next door. Ask for Chris he will point you in the right direction!
