“Great view and value...worth a try.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I stayed at this hotel in the offseason (late April 2013). Paid $95 for a suite...super value! Had a terrific room overlooking the ocean/pool. Clean, well furnished, TV was just "OK" but it not a big deal because I didn't spend a bunch of time in the room.

Hotel is across the street from the Family Kingdom amusement park which for me was neither good or bad. First, it was off season so the crowd wasn't too large and I was solo so I didn't have to be concerned about entertaining kids. If you're traveling with kids during peak season this location could be a huge benefit. Not so much if you're looking for some quiet time.

Staff let me check in early, a huge plus, because I had a rather tiring trip to get there. I was so thankfulI didn't check out the room location. Bad move since it was next to the elevators. Also...it was overlooking the pool which was entertaining during the day...not so much at 1:30AM when the pool party started. So much for sleeping with open sliding doors with the surf putting me to sleep.

Overall I'd rate this hotel as a keeper...depending on the current room rates.

Regarding room location if I were to return I'd definitely get a room on the ocean side as far away from the elevator as possible.

Room Tip: Ocean side, away from the pool and elevators

My husband and I traveled to MB on April 14th. We arrived early in the morning and was able to get into our suite which was very helpful after an early rise for our flight! Our Condo Suite was very nice with all amenities and had a warm home feel! Well stocked with all necessities and we had no need to bother housekeeping during our 4 night stay because we were well stocked with towels, laundry detergent, etc. The bed was little too soft for us, needed a much firmer bed, but it was tolarable! However, the Hotel rooms were nothing in comparison to the Condo Suite. We went to view an Oceanfront room, and upon entry, it had a mildew odor and was very cramped in size. Much renovations is needed for their Hotel rooms! Very glad we chose the Condo Suite to stay during our visit. I will stay at Westgate Resorts again, as this was my second stay but in another state and was satisfied then as well.

Thank you for sharing with us your feedback regarding your visit to Westgate Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort. It's nice to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your suite, feeling as you described as if it were home away from home. Our hotel portion of our resort has very recently received a thorough renovation, which should address the issues you listed.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We booked it online months in advance and were not sure what to expect. We were very pleased with the staff, the room and the view. Very clean and a beautiful villa. The staff was professional and friendly and eager to help. We were sad to leave and will definately be back!

Room Tip: We stayed on the side on the 16th floor. It had a great view of the ocean and the city.

The housekeeping staff was very efficient. I love staying at the towers when I visit MB every year! Our room was awesome and very well stocked with supplies. The hotel was clean and the pools were warm.
I would stay here over and over again!

Room Tip: Corner suites are roomier!

This was a wonderful place to stay for our anniversary. The room was by far the nicest room we have ever stayed in. Even the suite on the cruise ship couldn't compare to this room. Highly recommend this Resort to anyone.

We had a great visit and everyone at Westgate is just so friendly and helpful. Great experience.
The things that attract us to Westgate is location (close to my family that lives in Myrtle Beach), on the beach, allows pets and again the friendliness of the staff.

Room Tip: Getting close to elevator is a good thing. Didn't notice any downside so just don't see any...

The staff was very courteous and made sure we had everything we needed or wanted to know. The accomdations and amenities were great. The view ocean front view was great. The location was very convenient and in walking distance to attractions and restaurants. The only problem we had was with the shower. It seemed to be clogged and the water was rising in the tub. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend it to our family and friends.
