“Family Spring Break Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

When your traveling with family, its hard to find enough space for everyone, but this place had everything we were looking for! Enough space, ENOUGH TOWELS (some of you with a large family know what I'm talking about) LOL. Beds are comfy and firm ~ I like softer bed, but it still was good sleep. They had a good restaurant onsite~very good food. Outdoor pools, weight room and jacuzzi. This resort is right on the ocean! WE also had a kitchenette where we could cook to save more money (Piggly Wiggly grocery around theblock~kind of pricy, but ask for a piggly card to get all advertised pricing) There is also a dollar general one block up from the pig with cheaper non meat food items if you're on a budget. This resort is right across the street from Family Kingdom theme park (print out coupons for $3 off right on Family Kingdoms Website). I traveled with teenagers so there is a Karma Teen Club for $10 that they all enjoyed and can't wait to come back again. FYI~ this club is not open all year, check their website before planning to bring your teens here!

I checked in here after traveling for the entire day. I went to take a shower and there was hair on the walls that wasn't my own. There was also hair all over the shower curtain, different hair than the one on the walls. The shower would not turn off and leaked all night.

A most enjoyable week on Myrtle Beach where there is 60 miles of beautiful beach. Great for walking, collecting shells, kayaking, banana boating, swimming, etc. The hotel is situated right on the beach and what a hotel! This was an exchange with our time share and it's the best we've been to! We were on the 6th floor and what a view.....you felt like you were right out there! We had a huge master bedroom with king size bed, a two person jacuzzi and a large reading chair looking out the patio door (that was just in the bedroom!). We had a large shower room, double sinks and a cupboard with 18 bath towels -- 18! couldn't believe it!! The living room had a queen pull out sofa, a love seat and a large flat screen tv with patio doors, most comfortable...also a great sounding stereo! The dining room had a long table with bench and 4 chairs to accomodate 8 people. The kitchen had a microwave, washer and dryer, dishwasher, full stove and fridge (with icemaker) and lots of dishes and flatware even the coffee ,dishsoap, dishwasher soap were provided for the whole week. This place was spotless, never seen a place so clean. There were several pools, it was close to many attractions and parks, shopping, etc. It was a week in paradise! Excellent staff and concierge service and security in the parking lot!

Room Tip: 6th floor gave you a super view and the extended balcony had a table and two chairs at each end of i...

I have been to several resort, this one was uber amazing. The view from my room was gorgeous! The staff was very heplful nice and courteous too! The knowledge of things to do by the staff made me feel even more comfortable and ready to explore the surrounding area. What ever is was that you were looking to do the staff was right there with the answers. Even thought they were doing renovations the rooms were clean and comfortable, and unlike many other hotel resorts there were plenty of towels in the bathroom!! That was a plus for me. Besides having to pay for WiFi and breakfast the time i stayed there, I had a wonderful experience and cant wait until I come back!

Room Tip: rooms with the ocean view are wonderful, and if your traveling with a group and your rooming by your...

I, being a college student, took a road trip down to this hotel for spring break. The pricing was excellent with the Triple A discount and two other girls and I fit comfortably in a room with a kitchen and king sized bed with a pull out couch. There was a certain security guard there who did a wonderful job and I just wanted to take the time to bring attention to him! His name was Kevin Knipper and he was a joy to have around the hotel! He really took the time to get to know the visitors and was respectful when he had to enforce the rules. I know it must have been difficult to deal with all the loud spring breakers, but his attitude and personality made us all really want to be respectful and I appreciated how he handled every situation. So again, his name was Kevin Knipper and his badge number was 308. He was a FANTASTIC security guard and he should definitely be acknowledged for that. Saying that, the rest of the staff at the Westgate were very friendly and overall the trip was awesome.

Room Tip: "oceanview" doesn't necessarily mean view of the ocean. make sure you talk to the fron...

Thank you for your recent review of our property. We are glad that you found "the staff very helpful" and that they went out of their way to make sure your stay was very relaxing and enjoyable. WiFi charges depend on several factors and what is included with your reservation. In most cases it is included, however we do offer some options where it is not; depending on your booking source and specials. Thank you again for your recent review and we hope to see you again soon.

The staff at the Westgate Resort could hold a clinic on customer service. They smiled, were courteous, and went out of their way during our stay at the Westgate Resort in March. Also, they were able to partially correct a mistake made on our third party reservation and rescue the weekend for us. Thank you staff!
The location of the resort is excellent. The view from our sixth floor ocean front room was breathtaking. The room itself appears somewhat dated, although it was exceptionally clean which is not often the case in oceanfront properties.
Do note that if you are booking through a third party on the web and it states under guaranteed amenities "condo", this does not mean you are getting a condo. You will be booked into a standard room. The wording is no fault of Westgate Resort, it is unfortunately the lure into booking a nonrefundable room through a third party.
We would definitely stay at the Westgate Resrort. again.
