“Best beach trip ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed at Holiday Sands North in the past, our stay was amazing. Its
Affordable, clean, walking distance to board walk and shopping. The staff was friendly, very helpful any need we had was promptly fulfilled. Ive stayed at other places in Myrtle Beach and nothing compared to our stay here at Holiday Sands. Rooms and pools were very clean. Our housekeeper was nothing but amazing and respectful! Love this place

This is our second year staying at this motel and its clean and the prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly. I guess the only complaints I have is the parking its a little crazy having to park so far away from the motel, the mattresses could be upgraded, the elevator was broken a couple times and the maid only cleaned our room twice but hey we still had a great vacation and would stay again.

My family and I are returning home from our stay here. We chose this hotel because based on the rooms, we expected it to be a bit outdated, but overall nice for the price. The location was excellent - walking distance to shops, arcades, etc., but the hotel left a lot to be desired. The rooms were dirty and the elevator smelled like urine. The pool areas could also use a good cleaning, and it was so crowded there that my children didn't get to utilize it much. I am typically not one to complain or be picky, but in this case, saving a few bucks wasn't worth it. I would strongly suggest spending a couple hundred more and staying at the Bayview Resort, just a few doors down.

Wife and I stayed there July 21-26. and it just keeps getting better and better. Stayed in the same room we stayed in 2011. It had been upgraded and was awesome. Bed was very comfortable and you can't beat the view of the ocean. 2nd Ave pier and downtown Myrtle Beach is a short stroll away. Holiday Sands North is our home away from home. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Get ocean front room always

We stayed 7/22/13-7/25/13. we had a wonderful experience. All the staff was helpful and made our stay enjoyable. We got there a couple hours before check in, but since our room was ready we were able to go to our room and head straight for the beach!Location is great. Great place for families. we will be staying here again and looking forward to it! Thanks!!!

Meh! Hotel is so, so. The price tag is very friendly which makes it a no brain-er when you need 3 beds bigger than twins. The beds were not comfortable at all, hard and make it hard to sleep. The entire place is out-dated by about say 25 years. The pictures in the hallway are all from the 80's if that says anything. At one time this was probably a top-tier place but that is not today's case. The staff is however very friendly and seemed warm and receptive to any complaint. The pool area is packed everyday though, but it's not why we booked here any way, there is a perfectly good ocean front right outside. We did buy a box fan of our own to move the a/c to the rear room ($12) is not that bad to feel cooler in that room. This is def. not a "5 Star" hotel but I'd fairly shake them to a comfort inn. If I had a suggestion for them it would be to restrict the parking lots 1 and 2 to people staying longer than 4 days. Lots 3 and 4 should be there overflow, and highly consider buying the grass lot between 1 and 2 for more parking closer.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean are amazing to watch sun rise and moon rise.
