“great value, OCEAN FRONT. great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This hotel is a real jewel. there are many hotels in N. Myrtle Beach ocean drive blvd. However the value for the ocean front one bdrm apts is very good. Great friendly staff, housekeeping and attention to details. Mgr Ed Quin runs a "tight ship" to keep his repeat business high. I have been a repeat client twice a yr for approx 6 yrs.

No this Hotel is not a resort but if you want a good location with a balcony an ocean view and right on the ocean this place works.The staff was very pleasant and my room was always clean and fresh.
Parking was mostly across the street and limited but I always found a spot.
The breakfast is lacking but you won't go away hungry. They did not offer any meats like bacon/ham/sausage.The only hot items where waffles you make(very tasty) and toasted items.Oatmeal and cereal was also available.They had some fruit,yogart and pastrie's.

Room Tip: If you are on a budget and the most important thing is oceanfront with a great view and location the...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights about a week after Labor day. Overall, it is a pretty nice place for the price. It is not a brand new, luxury facility, but we found it to be clean, quiet, and well maintained. We booked an ocean front, king room with a kitchenette and balcony overlooking the beach. The view was amazing and the room was clean and comfortable. All of the staff members we encountered, from the front desk to the housekeepers were courteous and friendly. The continental breakfast was well stocked and had a good variety of cereals, rolls, make-your-own waffles, oatmeal, etc. A little more fruit would have been nice, but not a big deal. The hotel is in a convenient location with easy beach access, close to all the activities in the area and there is even a mini-mart located right across the street for snacks, drinks, etc. Parking seems a little tight, but they do have 3 lots located across the street. Never had a problem finding a place to park, but we were there in the off season. We would probably stay here when returning to the area.

Room Tip: For a better view and less noise, book an upper room.

We booked this through PriceLine for a discounted price. It is right on the beach. The buildings are spaced out so we were in the annex building but that was ok. We didn't get a room with ocean view but he did give us a spacious efficiency. Two flat screens, comfortable king bed and updated bath and decore. We had to laugh when we saw the lazy river. It is very small but worked well. Nice lady working at the tiki bar all afternoon. The beach is great. Nice breakfast. We would recommend this motel.

For the price, this is a pretty nice place to stay. We had a few problems, like the hot tub being out of commission one day -- but the overall experience was pretty good. The continental breakfast was a great way to start the morning -- I would have appreciated some variety in the hot tea department and more in the way of fresh fruit. Had a little trouble with the hot water in the shower either not being there -- or the shower suddenly becoming scalding hot when my kids were showering.

Nice family friendly place for N. Myrtle Beach. All staff were very friendly and helpful and nice oceanfront view and good sized rooms. Overall it was a good experience for budget minded family friendly at the time we were there. Facility is somewhat older and dated and could have used a good deep cleaning, though we stayed at the end of the season in September if that makes any difference. It you are looking for an upscale, spotless, "brand new feel" place to stay, then this is "NOT" the place for you to stay. However, if you are looking for a budget minded, family friendly place, with friendly staff and good service, and can get past a somewhat dated facility that is not "spotless", then you will be fine with it. Keep in mind that the old saying of "you get what you pay for" applies. It is a decent family friendly place on the beach with good oceanfront rooms, and convenient to many of the N. Myrtle Beach attractions. Staff are nice and helpful. Parking is a little bit of a challenge but is just across street after you unload beside the elevator. Again, if you are budget minded this is a good ocean front place, but dont expect the Hilton or something similar and those kind of amenities or you will be disappointed. Kudos to the staff for helping to make an enjoyable stay and making the most of an older facility that could use a facelift. However, everyone should keep in mind that if the company spends a lot to update the facility, the prices would likely go up accordingly, so there is a tradeoff for getting a reasonsable values for an oceanfront room. Hope this is helpful to anyone considering staying here.
