“March Escape from Snow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We spent the 2nd week of March, 2013 at the BW - Carolinian Plus - Having stayed their 3-4 times over the past few years we knew that the location / on the beach/ and the room (suite in tower building were very nice. Since the weather that week was below normal temperatures, the beach was only a walking tool for us and most people staying at this location. Overall, we have been very happy with this BW, but make sure you try to book around the spring breakers, as we had a very loud neighbor our last night staying here - awake at 3;15 - with doors slamming, and it was due to some late partying by the the younger crowd.
We would recommend making a stop at the "Broadway" shopping complex and the Grand Mall which are both close by and have a lot of shops and a variety of offerings. One of the best hidden gems close to the beach is "Market Commons" - we have made a point of it to go there for their shops, theatre and good eating spots. Also, if you like to walk - away from the beach - a nice lagoon type walking area. If you are very serious about looking to live in this area, they have numerous house building complexes going on and one can take a very low-pressure tour of the house - we like this area very much and might consider buying something here in the future.

Room Tip: Try to book a room (suite) in the Tower - as it offers much room and amenities (full kitchen) than t...

This was my wife's and my first visit to Myrtle Beach, and we loved our room at the Carolinian. We were in an oceanfront standard room with a king bed. The view was beautiful, and the room was well appointed. Our experiences with staff members left us pleased; everyone we came in contact with was courteous and very helpful. We did have rude, noisy neighbors the first night of our stay, but did not have any noise complaints after that, and I don't blame the hotel for their guests' lack of courtesy. My only complaint about the hotel itself was about the showers: the water pressure was poor (at least on the 9th floor) and the water temperature was very inconsistent (from warm to cold to burning hot and back again in seconds). I would happily stay here again, though.

Room Tip: The oceanfront rooms are worth the extra price. You'll enjoy the balcony and going to sleep wit...

The staff was very friiendly and courteous from the moment I stepped in the door. I had an ocean view room which they upgraded to an ocean fron,t just on my request and one was available. The accomodations were very nice and it had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on in a hotel. The only problem i noticed was being able to regulate the water temp when taking a shower. Overall, it was a great stay.

We had an oceanfront standard room, with a king bed, it was wonderful! The staff was very helpful and nice! We feel that this is the best room we have ever stayed in at the beach.
We plan to come here again soon!

This is the second year I've stayed at the Carolinian. Before , I have always found a reason for not returning.Staff were helpful, and suite was clean.Parking is a little inconvenient but that seems to be usual for this area.The carpet in our room is ready for renewal but was clean.I will very likely be returning in the future.
