“Weekend at the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was my first time visiting the resort. Nine of my closest friends and I spent the Labor Day weekend.It was awesome, the oceanfront 2 bedroom condo was fantastic. The ocean view one bedroom was very nice. The furnishings were updated, the condo was well supplied, the bed was comfortable and the staff was exceptional. The timeshare staff was a bit aggressive however, they have a job to do. The elevators were slow because the resort was full, after Sunday the elevators were fast. We will return again!

We had an enjoyable stay during the week of August 25th to September 1st. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The suite (#2507) was clean, well supplied, and in good repair. The furnishings were nice and the bed comfortable. The carpet is starting to show its wear and probably should be replaced soon. We were in the shore crest 2 building, which is across the street from the beach. This was not an issue, as the street is narrow, not too busy, and the walk short. We enjoyed the marsh/treetop view and the nightly fireworks display from nearby Barefoot Landing visible from our suite. Furthermore, the way our suite was situated, we actually had a partial ocean view from our second bedroom between the beachfront buildings. We did not experience the elevator delays that many of the prior reviews cited (even on Labor Day Weekend). The longest wait for an elevator was a minute or two. One person I spoke to who is a frequent guest said that elevators can be an issue in the summer when the schools are closed and the crowds are at a maximum. Also, elevators are more of an issue in Shore Crest 1 (with 2 elevators) than in Shore Crest 2 (with 3 elevators). Shore Crest 1 and Shore Crest 2 share the same facilities and amenities. With an indoor pool, 2 outdoor pools, 2 lazy rivers and a fitness center; the Shore Crest has ample recreation facilities. They also have a robust activity schedule. My only criticism is that there is no restroom near the outdoor pool in the Shore Crest 1 building. This is the busiest pool area, yet one has to go to the 3rd floor to use a restroom. I am surprised that the health/pool inspectors allow this as it does not seem very sanitary. If they cannot feasibly install a restroom, they should at least put a couple of portable rest rooms nearby during the warm weather season. On a positive note, they had ample parking; including several overflow lots beside and across a small street from Shore Crest 2. Also, luggage carts were plentiful.

Shore Crest I was a beautiful and well maintained resort. The amentities were exceptional. It was nice to be able to alternate between the pool and the beach throughout the day. Great entertainment and activities. My families only complaint was there was no stores or restaurants within walking distance like at Cherry Grove without having to go out to Hwy 17.

Overall we enjoyed our stay at Shore Crest Villas. The resort is located right on the beach. Room was very nice and had newer appliances. For those who don't like the beach, the outside pool is there. Plenty of parking. Negatives are the indoor pool had so much chlorine that it was unusable, elevators were really slow and luggage carts were nonexistent on check our day. Building looks old.

The location is really nice, and the views marshview or oceanfront are really nice. we were able to walk to barefoot landing with our four year olds, and the burger place along the way has some great food! The rooms are nice and spacious, i like that the beach towels are conveniently waiting for you in a tote bag for the beach upon arrival too. The lazy river was a favorite with the kids, sometimes its nice to stay in the building with marshviews because we use the pool there more. From the balcony on the 2nd building, you can still see the beach outside your entry door,which is nice because its better than staring at the backside of a building. Grills are a plus for us, but pool by beach can get a little crowded at times.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Shore Crest 2 during a July 4th week. We stayed on the 3rd floor facing the distant marsh which had a spectacular view of the sunset and fireworks provided by the nearby Barefoot Landing Shopping Center. Barefoot Landing is about a mile's walk away and provides access to entertaining shopping and nightlife at the House of Blues. Shore Crest itself is about 15 mins from downtown Myrtle Beach where the action is.

As for the hotel itself, the elevators are a bit slow, and crowded during check in and out times, but that just provides for more fun with finding the stairwells. The staff is super-friendly and there are no worries or pressure with the time share schedulers. The pools throughout are adequate for splashing but I do feel that the hot tub at Shore Crest 2 should be reserved for adults only (too small for overly enthusiastic kids to enjoy directly adjacent to more relaxed adults.)

As for the rooms, the second room is sufficient for kids, the master is a very good size and has access to the personal balcony. The shower and sink are right in the room with the commode in a separate room....perfect. The majority of the floor is tiled but carpeted where it needs to be. There were little annoyances; the handle on the balcony door being loose, space around the light fixture in the shower, an outlet that didn't work, etc....but nothing to affect a good rating. I would recommend this establishment to those that are used to staying on the outskirts of the main city/beach when traveling.

Room Tip: In Shore Crest 2 the first 3 floors are for parking...so most if not all the rooms are good for view...

The Pros:
1) Great location to the beach. We rent a ocean front 2 bedrooms unit and wow, this property is right on the beach.
2) Our unit was updated & renovated recently
3) Staff was friendly, knowledgeable of the town and helpful
4) The North Myrtle beach wasn't as crowded as Myrtle Beach

The Cons
1) Horribly, painfully slow elevators. The property is old so as the elevators, they should make upgrade. Luckily, our unit is on 4th floor, we used the stair.
2) Limited & tight parking space, some nights there was no parking spot left, but we can park on the other building's parking spot.

I still recommend this property as the access of ocean front and view are breathtaking!

Room Tip: Ocean view and Ocean front is different, make sure you ask for Ocean front room
