“View is great, policies are not”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

WAS the third time we stayed there. Love the view of the ocean from the rooms balconey Its clean, and well maintained. Has an elavator, indoor pool, full hot breakfeast. Rooms offer a small kitchen, with fridge, sink, stove, and microwave, coffee maker, iron. The forth day we decided to check out a day early due to rain. The woman at the desk informed us that we would still have to pay even though Iinformed her at 800 AM. It took a phone call to my credit card Bank and it was resolved

Room Tip: Check out the room before you un pack. And inquire about early check out policies

Our family recently had to be in North Myrtle Beach under less than pleasant circumstances. We cannot say enough about the treatment we received from the staff here and are very appreciative.

As for the hotel, the property is large with two ocean front buildings. The facilities were clean and the rooms were nice and clean down to the sanitized remote control. We had a comfortable ocean view room with a balcony. The only recommendation would be to unload your passengers and bags while parked in temporary parking adjacent to or under the building as the parking lot is located across the street.

I would definitely recommend this hotel when visiting North Myrtle Beach.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and in no time we were unpacking. We loved the waterpark and the pools. If we needed anything, the staff was very quick to be sure we had whatever we had requested. The pizza, wings and salad were fabulous! We will be back next year!!!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful,relaxing stay at the Best Western Ocean Sands. We arrived early in the morning before check in time and were accommadated right away. We were given an upgraded room with breathtaking ocean views. The staff were friendly and went out of there way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. Special thanks to Cee Cee, who kept our room spotless and always honored our requests for extra towels and supplies. We enjoyed the free continental breakfast every morning. The pool area was clean and we had an opportunity to meet a lot of nice people. The tiki bar at the pool was a big hit and our bartender Kirsten was a delight to chat with. She also made an awesome Margarita!
The hotel is located in North Myrtle beach so it is a good distance from the airport. We did not have a car so we rented a golf cart for a few days, which turned out to be a great way to sightsee and explore the area. Thanks to all at the Ocean Sands for a great vacation!

I'm a bit behind leaving this review as it's now Oct. and we went end of June-beginning July but I wanted to leave one! This was our first family vacation, so we wanted to make it great! And by staying in this hotel, it was! We stayed in the tower, on the 8th floor. Absolutely stunning view. The beds were way better than I thought they'd be, we always had enough towels and if we needed more, we got them. It was never an issue. Our room had the small kitchen, even including dishes. Everything was clean. Bathroom was clean, beds were clean, carpet was clean, etc. Air conditioning worked great even though we had our balcony door opened most the time to listen to the ocean. We had a small wait time for the elevators, but no more than 5 minutes at a time and sometimes there wasn't even a wait time. Still, you're on vacation, what's the rush anyways. The pools were nice, our kids enjoyed the lazy river especially. The beach wasn't overly crowded and there were showers and little stations to rinse the sand off. The staff really went above and beyond, we had no issues with them at all! Always made sure we were taken care of (I believe Dan was the guy we really liked) and the ladies in housekeeping were super sweet! Parking...honestly, was not as bad as I thought it'd be. That was one thing that really had me nervous about booking here but again, it really was not bad. We had to park across the street and the only time I got mad abt it was when we unloaded. Other than that, it's vacation. There's no rush anyways. A little walking won't hurt anyone! The breakfast was an added bonus but you've got to get there early or you'll get trampled!
There are only two somewhat negative things I have to say....and I don't know if this is read by the staff or not but they should take this into consideration! Number one-While the breakfast is nice, again, you.will.get.trampled. Seriously. If there was anyway to spread it out more that'd be great. Number two-we were there the last few days of June through out the first week of July....I know it's going to be busy. However there were several times over the days we were there that there were people in the pool who were not staying in any of the 3 hotels. They just came up from where ever and got in the pool. If they could maybe enforce like a wrist band type thing or make it to where you can use your key card to get in there?
Also, if you're going to be down there for the 4th of July, the fireworks are awesome to watch. However if you have kids, watch from the balcony....trust me. You don't want them on the beach with them all going off.
All in all, we had a great time and would definitely consider going back again! Fingers crossed for 2013!

Room Tip: the tower was the best, the shorter building next to that looked like it'd have a good view too...

The ocean view was the best, especially sitting on the balcony watching the view. Our room was clean and the service was good. We love the Tiki Bar. Shout out to Kirsten who makes the best bloody marys I've ever tasted! Also, thanks so much Kirsten for helping to make a bad situation (missing the boat!) into a good one. You are best!!!!

Check in was swift and once we had sorted where to park the car we made our way up to the 6th floor of the tower block...opened the door and were so pleasantly surprised....very spacious room with micro,fridge etc also a sofa and best of all some lovely ocean views...all in all very good value for money...breakfast was more than adequate albeit in rather cramped conditions...however that did mean that we met some delightful fellow travellers at our table.
North Myrtle Beach in September was relativlely quiet and we were entertained by events on the beach including two weddings and a firework display.
Super hospitality in Ocean Sands, Myrtle Beach and South Carolina made our vacation one to remember
