“Great customer service and nice rooms make this a good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Checked in and loved the room til I checked out the bathroom. The bathtub was disgusting with hair and soap scum and the bathroom floor still had hair on it. Let the front desk know so they could send someone to clean. Instead, they upgraded us from a king room to a one bedroom condo and threw in breakfast for both days of our stay. Was not expecting this. The condo was superb. The only complaint was no wifi reception. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed in a 2BR oceanfront suite that was great. Best beds ever! Service from check-in and throughout was great - courteous team that is guest-focused. The location was also perfect, not too far but also not too close to the busier section of Ocean Blvd. Great experience overall; would stay here again!

Room Tip: Go for oceanfront! Worth it!

We enjoyed our room and the service provided by all. The disappointment was that there was no bar or dining area. Magnolias is good, but would prefer just to have something on site.

Tracy was excellent and the housekeeping was done nicely. You need to check the bathtub for mold. It wasn't overwhelming, but not nice to see. We also enjoyed the balcony everyday.

The level of service was excellent. Free parking was a big plus.

Room Tip: The corner King Suite was very roomy. Our friends came for coffee one morning and the 8 of us were...

Your first impression is usually from the front desk. In this case, I was wowed by the staff. The level of service was off the charts for this hotel, and this is coming from a guy who spends 75+ nights a year in hotels!

I'm not used to such service, so it was very notable.

Parking is half a block away. NOT a big deal with such beautiful weather, but just know this in advance. Its not a problem to drop of passengers and bags, then move after you settle in.

My room was not bad...I have stayed in plenty worse, and some better. You could probably say they are nearing their "use by" date, meaning a bit of a refresh or remodel may be due soon, but for the location, the level of service, and the value, I would stay again!

I am a Diamond Elite member at Best Western, and I usually receive the best room at various locations whern I book. I'm not sure that this was the case here...I think they could do a bit better by accomodating / upgrading those of us who frequent their chain more often.

This was a "girl" trip to the annual gospel concert called "Singing in the Sun." We have stayed at the Best Western Carolinian for several years now. We've had the 3-bedroom suite, 2-bedroom suite, and standard rooms. The staff has always been very courteous. Alex was our bellman this year and did an excellent job. The housekeeping staff was very accommodating and met all our needs. Will be back next year.

Room Tip: This hotel is in the middle of Myrtle Beach so it's convenient to go North or South.

I had a group with 8 rooms and they were all very nice. The rooms were clean and had everything I would need. Stayed the 3rd week of April and they were doing some renovations on my floor. I looked in and the bathrooms were getting an upgrade. Granite counters, beautiful lighting and new paint. All the rooms have small friges, microwaves, safes, flat screen TV, 2 queen beds. The bedding looked brand new. Very modern, pure white comforters & sheets, very thick white towels. There is 2 chairs on each balcony. The front desk employees were so nice and helpful. Several people in my group had some interaction with housekeeping and they praised their response time and kindness. I would stay here again without hesitation.

The wife and I shared a two bedroom ocean front suite with another couple whom are our very good friends. We liked our suite very much. It was a corner suite with a view of the ocean and an awsome view looking south down the beach from the living room window. It was clean and roomy.The staff was very friendly and solved any little thing we asked for. We are looking forward to going back next year.

Room Tip: Our corner suite had spacious windows in the living room, providing a beautiful view of the beach.
