“Five Days for a Conference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This hotel is only about 5 minutes from the airport. It is clean and the people are friendly. There is a nice "homey" restaurant close--Marlin and another on the pier across from the gift shop. Nice pools and beach. Rooms have full size fridge, microwave and coffee maker. I would definitely return.

We stayed for 3 days in April and had a great time.Our room was really nice and very clean. Everyone that worked there was very nice.My son and nephew had fun swimming in all of the pools and floating in the lazy rivers.We played 5 or 6 games of minture golf.It's really nice that they let you play anytime for free.I don't eat breakfast so I didn't try the breakfast at Marlins Buffet but the guys loved it.Hubby loved Ray's omelets.
The beach is really nice. It wasn't crowded and was very clean.We had a great time finding sharks teeth and some seashells.
Our room was on the 5th floor of the Live Oak building and we had a great view of the pier.The ocean view was very nice.I liked sitting on my balcony and watching the people parasailing.
I highly recommend Springmaid Beach Resort and we will be back later this summer.It's a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Pick a higher floor.Live Oak has the best view of the pier.

We just shot away for an "extended" weekend. Absolutely like the hotel and it's amenities. The pier was so much better than the other piers in Myrtle. Having the bar (Barnacles) right on the end of the pier made for a refreshing end to a day of fishing. Bartender Steve was excellent and he was very entertaining. He made for a good time with myself and the wife.
The breakfast at the hotel was good also. Ray makes some good omelettes. The rooms were decent. We really don't spend a whole lot of time in the room, but it was nice.
We plan on returning to this hotel again.

Groupon offered this resort at a rate of 62/night. We figured an ocean front room for that price was a good deal. Perhaps we are spoiled by other property's definitions of the word "resort" but this is NOT a resort. It's a hotel with a conference center and a few pools. When we arrived at 2 pm we were Told our room wasn't ready and that check in was 4 pm. We have NEVER been denied early check in before anywhere we have stayed, but perhaps it is a property policy. Anyway, the doors to the rooms are all outside. Having a small child we weren't thrilled with that but hoped there was a security measure in place such as the requirement of a room key to operate the elevators. We were disappointed to learn anyone could access the elevators at any time. The lazy rivers can only accommodate four people comfortably. Any more than that and you'll have a traffic jam. The indoor pool wasn't heated and the skylights in The roof had large holes in them. (We stayed in the live oak building. The other building's indoor pool was in better shape). Our room had a safe and full size refrigerator but a two cup coffee maker. (Not feasible for more than one coffee drinker). As we were looking around the room we saw on the door that the room rates were regularly $250/night. Seriously?!? That much money per night from that quantity of rooms and you can't secure your elevators or enclose your breezeways? Or simply repair a skylight? The pier was beautiful and in April the property was peaceful. Our groupon deal included breakfast for two at the on site restaurant. It was a typical buffet style but was clean and the food was tasty. The property does offer free miniature golf for guests but no ices machines on site. The property does not provide pool towels nor do they allow room towels at the pool so if you're planning to do beach and pool in the same day bring extra linens. Its close enough to the grand strand if you're into that scene and you can also walk to the state park pier from the beach. For the groupon deal we found it was good enough for a few days getaway. But we definitely won't return. For the rate they're charging we can rent a house or find a real resort.

I was booked at the resort by another chain for a timeshare promotion. I was not initially impressed but once I got to my room and stepped onto the balcony I was sold. The resort is right on the beach and has a pier that leads out into the ocean. The resort if definitely a family resort and it is very inviting. The staff was great and very accomodating to our needs. The biggest disappointments for me was the fact that I could hear my neighbors through the walls and that the elevators reeked...but since it's beach traffic in and out of the elevators all day everyday I guess that makes it okay. Bottom line, I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to family and friends.

Room Tip: choose an outside room and one on a higher floor
