“very nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is my first time back to crown reef in over 10 years and I cannot say enough nice things about it. Check in was fast and the guest service was friendly and awesome. The room is nice and clean in tower two. The grounds are being worked on but still having a great time. Yes it is outdated a bit but you can see the progress they are making to fix it up. All I can say is awesome awesome awesome.

Had a great time lovely rooms but a bit on the long and skinny side instead of wide but still beautiful. Great staff. Plenty of pools and water actives like water slides and lazy rivers that circle around the beach side of the hotel under palm trees.

Not having stayed here before I didn't know what to expect or it's exact location on Myrtle Beach.Turns out we were on the southern end of the strip.It is the only hotel on the beach that all 500+ rooms are oceanfront.Our room was a two queen bedroom with a balcony overlooking the beach and a full kitchen. It was clean and had been remodeled along with much of the hotel.It was a quiet area as compared to mid Myrtle Beach.I would recommend this hotel when visiting Myrtle Beach.Try the bar as Jessica and Marie are great hosts and full of information.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room from the 6th up.

I will NEVER go back to this resort again! The rooms are very tight. Hardly no room to walk. I told the front desk when making reservations that I needed a big room for 8. More space the better. Tower 1 on top of that is invested with ROACHES! That's right. I found two baby ones and my friend killed nine in her room. NASTY! We were told that we were lying. Well I told her she could go to my room look on the side of the toilet there is a little surprise for them. On top of that the maid for got to clean up a rich leg. BUSTED. We told the front desk and they moved us to tower two. Well..... Then they processed to tell me that they have had no complaints regarding to bugs. Which is a LIE! my whole cheer team got moved with other people staying in tower one. Then we get moved to tower two. Thinking yes this has got to be better. NOT. NO HOT WATER FOR SHOWERS. My kids were not happy. They don't ask for a lot but goodness. Then we went to call the front desk the damn phone didn't work. How about that. The water slides were nice but nothing like the pictures. Faded big time. Then I take the kids the water park after closing the water park down the worker proceeds to tell me that it opens up at 12. All pools and water park. Nothing like having five upset kids not being able to swim. When we went to leave the pools were opened. They opened at nine. How nice to lie to children. Please stay some where else. Unless you want bugs!

Chose this hotel for the outdoor waterpark for the children. Brought them with me on buisness just to give them a waterpark play day which they had to miss a day of school for. Checked in late evening while it was pouring rain.Got up early to a sun filled morning so the children could be there at 9 when the facilities opened only to find out that everything but the indoor pool and hottubs were closed for maintenance. Very dissapointed as this was our first visit to the Crown Reef. My luck. Room and everything else was fine. Nice balcony view. The breakfast buffet / coffee shop on site was busy understaffed. Wait to order and pick up was very long.
