“Location great but upkeep is lacking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

The location is the the only plus. It is right next to 2nd ave. pier and our 5th level oceanfront room gave us an amazing veiw of the weds night fireworks. It is a very old hotel. Some of the walkways have crumbling concrete. There was paint peeling on the ceiling of our balcony. The carpet turned feet and sandals black. The bed wasnt that comfortable. You could feel the springs. The parking was very difficult. Not enough parking. The wi-fi had tight restrictions and we were not able to check the lottery results online. A message showed up saying it was restricted because it was in the gambling category. We were able to check it by calling in on our phone, but it was irritating. The indoor pool and outdoor lazy river didnt look well maintained. The water wasnt dirty but they still didnt look very good and we swam once for a short time. We were told we could swim in the Bar Harbour (sister property) outdoor pool but we never got around to checking it out. Thats ok we were there to swim in the ocean...

The room seemed clean. The housekeeping did a good job on the cleaning everyday and were nice. The people at the front desk were nice and helpful. Also, thankfully the ac worked well in our room. Microwave and fridge worked. Plenty of hot water in the shower. No mold in the shower--which I have seen in other places but not here.

Room Tip: Ocean Front--at least 3rd floor

Checked in July 22nd. room was filthy. I went to front desk talked to the head person in charge of cleaning she said she would take care of it.. What a joke.. Stayed gone 6 hours so the could clean it, came back nothing had been touched. By this time everyone was gone so front desk said the would send the janitor to clean it.. We left again came back he had sprayed air freshener and made the beds.. Didn't change them cause the same stuff was on them.. I could have sprayed air freshener.. Went back to front desk cancelled our reservations and left.. This was a horrible place the outside wasn't even clean. It's not worth staying at will never go back there!!

When we arrived finding parking was horrible...finally made it to our room on the other side of the hotel,since the elevator on our side was broken made it even more horrible, when entering our room we found that the microwave was cracked,fridge barely was cold(never got any colder), tv in the extra bedroom was not working and after 3 calls we finally got a used one on the second day after we was assured we woukd get a brand new one, also we paid $109 a night and sign the next day said $59 for a side view room like we had, whole hotel was trashy..walked by a beer can and other trash in the stairway 3 days before they picked it up(I was gonna see how long before they got it), only pool they had was a covered heated pool which really didnt care for in 90 degree weather and the fact that a large terd was in there and when I reported it to the office they rudely said "your the third person that has told me this" maintenance got the feces out and didnt even close the pool afterwards!!! Wow!! Lazy river only had about 8 floats and the water barely flowed,rooms did have a weird smell, and smelled pot about 4 times while we were there, didn't get a info pack about the hotel...had to call or figure it out urself, Good location but horrible parking and def needs renovated compared to the other hotels they own there....oh yeah office has better appearance than the whole hotel so don't let the first impression fool ya!!!

We arrived to no hardle any parking available. Pool view 2 bedroom unit room 105 was falling apart smelled like an ashtray, the bathrown counter had all kinds of burns & door handle was about to fall apart with holes in the door. The only appliance that was descent was the fridge. But the carpet looked descent. We asked about changing rooms on Friday for the remainder of the 2 nights we had & they couldn't move us until Sat for 1 night which was a 2 queen bed oceanfront room 536 which was a much better room it was cleaner & didn't smell of smoke.
The website was very misleading & I didn't see anywhere on it that said all units allowed smoking.
The evening staff was OK but not as friendly as the lady that moved our room & the cleaning lady was very friendly when we asked to have the first room cleaned good on Friday morning, she was great with getting us extra towels too.
I would not refer anyone to this motel.

Let's see, we arrived to our pet friendly room to find it destroyed! Dog urine smell, carpets soaking wet, door frames rotten or missing! Bugs everywhere!!! We had to spray our kids with OFF before going to bed to keep the Mosquitos away. Fridge broken, stove broken, air unit knocking and yes broken! We had to use towels as blankets, I wouldn't let the family sleep under the covers due to the amount of free roaming bugs! We made it one night of our 6 day stay. When we checked out the receptionist asked why we were leaving early, I told her I have seen cleaner crack houses! She said she understood. It clearly happens a lot!!!! Run, run, run, if you stay anyway and get room 107, I warned you! I felt bad leaving my dog in the room while we searched for a new hotel an hour into our vacation, be warned!

I booked online, thinking it looked decent. The first room they gave us wreaked of cigarettes and pot. The maintenance man was installing a new entry handle on the door. I complained and they gave us an "upgraded room". The bathroom door was falling apart and the tub drained very slow. Handles missing on the furniture, and the fridge looked like somebody used it for a punching bag. We didnt dare sleep under the sheets. The hallways were filthy with trash and the elevator was so nasty that we used the stairs. The parking was a nightmare as well. "FIND ANOTHER HOTEL"

I use Bermuda Sands every year that I go to Myrtle Beach. Even though it is probably one of the older hotels in the area, this year I saw some updates to the rooms. The location can not be beat! The hotel clerks were so darn courteous, Joe Delaney and Nancy Hammond were helpful in any way possible. I will always look for this hotel when I return to that area.

Room Tip: I always get a 2 bedroom unit on the 5th floor, ocean front..it is private and noise is minimal, plu...
