“nothing fancy, but overall good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stayed for three nights in mid-February in two-bedroom north facing unit.

Pros: Very clean. Beds comfortable. Everything worked. Nice view.
Cons: Walls to neighboring units a bit thin, and furnishings a bit spartan.

Advice: Took me a while to realize that all the lots across the street, including those across from neighboring hotel to the north, were parking for Ocean Reef. If check-in spots are full just park across the street and walk over.

Dear Hoffman522,

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us here on tripadvisor.com. We appreciate all of the feed back our guests give us and use it to make the guests next stay just that more enjoyable. I do apologize if our staff did not direct you where to park upon check in.

We also do give you a map of the area for future reference so that you can see the parking availability at the property. I do apologize for any miscommunication, but I do hope you had an enjoyable rest of your stay! We look forward to seeing you and your family in the future!

Sincerely,

Crystal VanderSchans

My family has been coming here every year sometimes twice a year for 28 years. Our 2 sons have always loved it here. Our oldest son had his honeymoon here. Our youngest son was a baby & now he is graduating from med school and still loves it here. It is always clean & reminds you of a tropical island. The people are so nice here especially the ones that work in the Cafe du Port. They are like family now especially Maggie she is so much fun and always gives you the best service. Food is always good. We just went for a 3 day valentine day trip me & my wife. We got the best deal hotel & breakfast all 3 days. We will be back again maybe more than 2 times since we are retired now.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

Just returned from three nights and enjoyed this hotel again. The rooms and hotel seem to be very clean. The people at check in were very friendly. The staff at Cafe du Port were always so pleasant to greet you and cater to your needs. Sometimes the hotel offers specials which include buffet breakfast each morning which I would recommend. One small suggestion would be to replace bedspreads more often which most hotels need to do as well.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront. Condos are on side but with very good views.

My husband and I wanted to spend a get away weekend where we could sit and watch the ocean. The 17th floor of Ocean Reef was perfect. All windows facing the ocean. The room was huge, beautiful and so comfortable. We had nine sets of towels! The hot tubs and lazy river were well taken care of. We will return often!

Service is top notch. Rooms are clean. We have been staying at ocean reef for 8 years now. Food is spectacular. Kids love the pool activities. Love looking out over the ocean. We have tried a few others but none compare with the outstanding amenities provided us at ocean reef. It is certaintly advantageous that the price is always affordable, no matter time of year.

We stayed just for the weekend and our room was the King Suite and it was huge and we had a beautiful oceanfront balcony as well as a side balcony. We just loved it! Our room came with breakfast and that was excellent as well.
The front desk staff was very efficient and very friendly.

I would recommend this for a week long stay as well as they have wonderful pools, both indoor and out, great beach and close to everything Myrtle Beach has to offer as well as restaurants right on the premises.

We have been coming to Ocean Reef for 7 years. Best breakfast buffet-oceanfront, home cooked food, very friendly cooks (thank you Walter) and wait staff. Wide expanse of beach and not crowded. Rooms are nice and inexpensive. Bathrooms are clean, but not brand new. Outdoor heated pool for year round use and new lounge chairs. Indoor lazy river and pool also clean. Game room. Our kids love it all. Close to Broadway on the Beach shopping.

Room Tip: Two elevators to serve efficiently. Corner suites are all windows. Just need to replace sofa bed mat...
