Let me start off saying this was a spur of the moment trip to Myrtle Beach with some good friends. I searched and searched for a hotel and this seemed to be the best deal to accommodate all of us. We had a two bedroom oceanfront efficiency with three queen beds (type B on hotel website).
We're all thirty-something adults and haven't stayed in a room this run down since senior week in high school! Let's start with the elevators. Wow! I took the stairs when possible because the noises they made scared me so bad. We were in room 410. It smelled terrible as soon as we walked in. Thankfully we had brought some Febreeze air freshener with us. The entire hotel is smoking... yes, every room. The AC could hardy spurt out cold air on a normal setting. The bathroom had the old brown wooden doors and there was actually white paint scattered on the back in places. Dust piled up in the corners on the baseboards in the bathroom. Tick dust on the air vent in the bathroom. Hair on the walls in the shower. Very thin toilet paper. The chairs on the balcony weren't nice. Instead of even some cheap decent plastic chairs there were vintage vinyl strap lawn chairs. One chair even had a broken strap. Wireless was in and out during our stay.
As I mentioned earlier, there were three queen beds in our room. Two of the beds were pretty decent (although we did have to ask for extra pillows), but one was very uncomfortable. You could feel every spring in the mattress. Thankfully we weren't there on a romantic getaway or with our families. It was a fun filled long weekend and having being graced by beautiful weather, we really didn't spend a lot of time in the room.
I gave this hotel 2 stars because everyone seemed to be very nice and were always helpful when we needed something. There was ample parking and it was cheap. I guess I should have known booking to room what to expect, but going off of the other tripadvisor reviews, I trusted the hotel. I'm not saying don't stay here... just know what you're getting into before you go and take your own toilet paper! :)
