“Stayed April 10, 2013 sorry took so long”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Just me and my husband for a week away. We were a little concerned about the parking by reading the reviews which was not an issue. There is plenty of parking across the street from the tower. (The taller building). This is where we stayed for a week. The first 2 days there, our room was on the 7th floor which was ok. However, to watch the sunrise you have to look around the cable and the top of the neighboring building. So, if you want the sunrise view I suggest to go above floor 7. To our surprise we had a message on our phone the evening of our 2nd night. It was from management and said we needed to call the desk as soon as we returned. We got offered the penthouse suite for the rest of our stay at no charge due to the fact that our room door needed painted because the hotel was getting ready for an audit. The pool was clean and heated. The lazy river was too. There was a hot tub but we did not use because it is small and there were people in it. The bar by the pool is nice for an after dinner drink or whenever. It was open from noon till around 7 or 8. The bartender was nice. The beach wasn't crowded, people were friendly. The area behind the hotel is residential and quiet. Shopping & restaurants were only a few miles down the road. Our room was clean, and our tv wouldn't come on and we called the front desk to let them know so it can be fixed and maintenance arrived within 10 minutes and resolved the issue. (It was an issue with a cable being unhooked). Had free wifi and worked good. Breakfast was good but I suggested you go as soon as they start serving or everything will be gone, however the staff does their best to keep it stocked and clean which can be difficult with 20 people trying to eat at once, and if you want something that is empty from the breakfast bar all you gotta do is ask. BEWARE no bacon or sausage. Lol. It's your typical hard boiled eggs, cereal, fruit, yogurt, waffles, orange juice, milk, coffee, Danishes. We did use the computer for guests so we could print out our return flight tickets, no problem there. There was a bookshelf with paperbacks that you can borrow to read too. There is a convient store across the street however they do not stay open late. There was a restaurant in walking distance, but we did not go there. The hotel staff was nice and friendly. This is not a 5 star hotel and the place is a little outdated, but it is clean with ocean front and for the money..... was well worth it. We will be back.

Room Tip: My tip, stay in the tower building above the 7th floor if you want to watch the sunrise without the...

This is a pleasant ocean front hotel. If you are looking for luxury accommodations look elsewhere, this is not a resort. If you are looking for a cost effective place to stay in North Myrtle Beach with ocean view and outdoor pool, this is sufficient. Staff was pleasant, courteous, accommodating and professional.

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.
