“Great hotel, great price and the ocean is beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2010

This was a last minute get away idea for the family for spring break. Very glad we made the trip. The hotel was great and the price was affordable. Staff was friendly and everyone loved the pool and the location was perfect. I promised my girls we'd go back next year!

the front desk staff were very friendly and housekeeping was nice and attentive. Hotel and pool is right on the beach with easy acess to the ocean. This summer we plan to go back to enjoy the ocean when the water is warmer. Our room had a private oceanfront balcony that allowed us to leave our slider open to enjoy the sound of the ocean. Great price for a oceanfront room!!

I booked this hotel by mistake and I'm happy i did. By not being aware about the existence of North Myrtle Beach i thought it was all the same, this place seem to have everything I was looking for. I arrived to the wrong Best Western and the front desk clerk was so kind to send me on the right track. On arrival the service was great and the room was in great shape. The internet access is wireless only (wi-fi) the speed was great and very convenient. The view from the 10 floors oceanfront building is outstanding at any given time. The room was equipped with a full kitchen, a small range, small fridge, microwave, silverware and all you might need if you wish to save some money cooking your own meals. The bathroom was clean from top to floors. The balcony was in perfect shape as well as all the pools. There is 3 ways to access the beach 2 are controlled by the hotel 1 is public access. Ice machines and vending machines are close to the elevator. The elevator is not precisely smooth, it does what it is intended too but expect some sudden moves. One thing you might want to know is how parking works , there is a limited amount of spaces at the hotel premises, there is 2 buildings the main tower might have 12 to 15 spots, the south tower haves about 10 and are mostly handicap. They do have 2 additional lots within walking distance, but if you wish to keep your car close make sure you get a spot and walk, after 10:00 pm it was hard for me to find a spot, there was some but restricted from 12:00 am to 6:00 am. Breakfast is as most of the Continental breakfast you might know, you can make your own waffles, everything is well presented and neat, if you like heavy breakfasts like me there is a few buffets and plenty of places you can go to. If you are looking for a place to relax, enjoy the view be close to plenty of restaurants this is your place. There is not many attractions as on Myrle Beach but for a beach retreat this place is an A+ in my book. It is not the most expensive nor the cheapest but for my first time ever on a Best Western they delivered as promised.

Stayed one night on our way to SC and GA. The rate was excellent ($57/nite + tax) front desk was very friendly and helpful. Room was OK, but like others have mentyioned it is nothing fancy but had all the basics and was clean. We were in the main hotel where the registration office is and we had a 4th floor room with tha balcony overlokking the beach. We'd probably stay there again especially in the off season when the area is not so crowded.

Extremely friendly service, housekeeping changed bedding and towels while we were out. Came back to freshly cleaned room....even folded the kid's personal blankets from home. Parking is a little tight, but it is worth it because it is so close to the water. We will be staying there again in the future. Thanks Oceans Sands....

Ten days here on our way to Florida. This is our second year here and we really like it.
The hotel is older and not fancy but we have a unit with bedroom, living room area and kitchenette with a balcony right on the beach. We spent part of the day watching dolphins play right in front of our hotel.
The room is clean but the bathtub needs a new antislip coating and the kitchenette is limited in its facilities.
The pool area in front of our building is not open off season and has some construction debris. The small indoor pool, hot tub and the outdoor pool and tiny lazy river are available but the outdoor pools are too cold to use right now.
The continental breakfast is great although the eating area can get crowded as it is quite small and at this time of the year, it is too cold to use the outdoor patio.
Two short blocks away is a great Irish pub called Molly Darcy's that has a nice atmosphere and good food.
The staff is very pleasant and more than willing to address any issues that come up (We needed new balcony chairs and got them right away.)

We arrived early for our trip, hours before check in time, and were graciously given a room right away. The staff was great, and the rooms were cleaned at all times. Small rooms, but for the cost that's what you get. Amazing view of the ocean from our room, and a 30 second walk to the beach, you nearly step right out onto the sand. No problems, quiet place, great staff, and three pools. Lazy river seems like more of a lazy stream, but overall a great little place, for little money. VALUE!
