“Comfortable, clean, and close to everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

My best friend and I took a "girls getaway" trip to Myrtle Beach and stayed at the Best Western Carolinian Resort. Our room was very nice, clean, and comfortable, we had easy beach access, and were within walking distance to lots of restaurants, bars, and shops along the boardwalk. This hotel is in a nice area, felt very safe. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. This hotel is also very close to Broadway on the Beach - about 3 miles. For the price, I would highly recommend this hotel and I would persaonally stay there again.

We had to return to this hotel because, my 5 years old grandson fell in love this place last year. The rooms are set up like a mini apartment. He love walking our on to the balcony to watch what is going on at the beach. His eye light up a the view and he really enjoy swimming in the pools and hot tub. Please, let not forget about the easy excess to the beach were he play for hours with a smile on his face. The staff are wonderful and they make sure you are comfortable during your stay.He said, Papa this is the best place he has ever been and he hug is papa.The staff are wonderful and they make sure you are comfortable during your stay. We will be back with our grandson............

Took my wife out to this place to walk on the beach. It's as close as you can get to the beach. You have access to the beach right from the stairs of the hotel. It has swimming pools between the door step and the beach. It has small frig and a stove. The room is small. It has a balcony which you can enjoy the beach view. However, the room is quite run down. Everything is just worn out, overall; the AC cover is falling off, sliding door is hard to open and close, the mattress's spring is shot.

If your main focus is the beach with easy access and less of a concern about your sleeping quarter, this is an excellent place. In fact, if i were to take my kids to the beach, this location would be really nice. If your living quarter matters, this may not be the place. However, if you are comfortable with the typical motel living quarter, this is just fine.

In a nutshell, this is not bad for a weekend out for the family but not good for a couple's weekend out due to the run down condition.

This was our first time staying at this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised upon check-in with FREE breakfast, FREE putt-putt, and FREE admission to Wild Water and Wheels Water Park. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly, and took time to wish us a good time. On our second day there, I had to go to the front desk to ask a question. The same person who checked me in the day before was at the desk. He called me by name without me having to tell him who I was. We would stay here again!

We stayed with my wife at this hotel from August 09 through August 12.
We prepaid the stay through Spirit Vacations, and upon arrival the front desk said they had the reservation, but not the payment, so if we wanted to stay, we had to pay again. After several calls from Spirit, the hotel agreed to refund the charge.
The room was outdated, with dirty carpets and located on the 3rd floor between the elevators and the laundry-vending-ice machine room. The reader can imagine the noise of people getting ice out of the machines, bottles falling in the vending machines and washers and dryers running all night.
The air conditioner was very loud waking us up every time it started.
The only advantage this hotel has is that it's located right on the beach.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near teh laundry/vending/ice machine areas

I spent hours scouring through trip advisor for the perfect hotel for our vacation. I was looking for beach front, value for the money, comfortable accommodations. The Carolinian had it all and then some. The pictures of the hotel were exactly what we got and it couldn't have been better! Thank you Best Western for helping us make our first family vacation and our kids first trip to the ocean absolutely wonderful!

Lousy view from room; Parking was inconvenient being across the street; Elevator at garage was broken but did not know that while waiting on the 5th level. There was a sign on the first level but did not know that until I walked down; WiFi did not work several times- I called the front desk at 12:15 AM and the phone rang for at least 5 minutes with no answer; The bathroom smelled bad; The soaps, shampoos etc were not always replenished; Loud noise from some kind of power equipment at 6:00 AM. These are just a few of the things that left us with a negative experience. Some of them I already addressed in a prior email. A reply was sent to me saying someone would further respond but, so far, nothing.
