“Perfect Family Fun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This was the first family vacation we have had in 4 years! This place did not disappoint! Rooms were very clean. Staff was pleasant and helpful. View was heavenly. We requested a high floor (20) when we checked in and had an ocean view room. I was surprise the full kitchen had everything you would have at home- more than you would need to get by- the pots/pans, bowls, wine glasses, and glass bake ware. Furniture was nice and the beds were very comfortable. With the room you get free passes for breakfast, miniature golf and entry to the water park. You also receive an awards card which allows you to receive many discounts to the surrounding, restaurants, activities and shopping.I ask several guest how was there stay-they were happy and all said that they would come back. And so will we!

Jennifer B – Columbus, Ohio

Room Tip: When getting an "Ocean View" room- request high floor.

These rooms are great and right on the beach but for some reason two years in a row check in was a disaster. No rooms ready after waiting for three hours yet while there for an entire week our room was cleaned before noon. Looking for a new spot.

Stayed at the Best Western Carolinian for 5 days. We had a 2 bedroom/2bath suite with balcony overlooking the beach. The view was spectacular. Love the sound of the waves. The hotel is very nice and clean. The staffs are very friendly. We plan to stay in the same hotel again when we return to Myrtle Beach. Hopefully we get the same suite.

Room Tip: Corner suites have better views. Both bedrooms have balconies. Higher floor also preferable. Less...

Been one of the best hotels I have stayed in. This time I was in the original hotel and it is in need of renovation bad. Our room spelt horrible and we ended up having to leave the balcony door open while we slept. I even said to the staff that spraying for it wouldn't help, but only mask the smell for awhile. About 2:30 am the smell was back strong. I asked to move and they said the spray would take care of it. NOT

We stayed at this hotel for four days from July 18-July 22. We had one room with two beds and a kitchenette and another single with a king bed. Both rooms had balconies with a view. The rooms were clean and well kept and very comfortable. There is free, shaded parking across the street in the deck. The breakfast buffet at Magnolias next door to the putt-putt golf is very good. There is a normal sized pool and a lazy river that kids just love. Near the lazy river they also have a smaller pool and a hot tub, so there is plenty of space for activities near the hotel. They even have towels available for use at the pools or on the beach for guests. Beach access is easy. There are lifeguards on the beach (not associated with the hotels) who set up chairs and umbrellas that you can rent, but you can also rent chairs from the hotel. Make sure to look for shark teeth in the surf in addition to shells. The beach is relaxing and beautiful. Above all I have to say that the hotel staff is exceptionally friendly and attentive to the guests. From the moment we walked on the property literally everyone from the bellhop and cleaning staff up to the manager had a smile and a helpful tip and they seemed to really enjoy their jobs.
