The best thing about the Island Vista is the fabulous view and great location. You are at the north end of Myrtle Beach and away from the crowds and traffic of the boardwalk. The staff is courteous amd professional from the front desk clerks to the the room maids. The only downside is that the old girl is getting a little long in the tooth and could use a few minor cosmetic repairs such as the public restrooms and the shabby carpets. Other then these minor problems its hard to find anything that is sub par with the Island Vista. We lookforward to our next visit.
