“Why not stay here again...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is our second time staying at Seaside; I have to say our first stay was a little better only because this condo was smaller. We still had 3 bedrooms, but this time only 2 bathrooms!! For 4 adults and 4 children we definitely needed that 3rd bathroom. My bedroom was right on the side a utility closet (other side of the wall) that was outside of our door which was used by the hotel staff, in the middle of the night you could hear some strange loud sound come through the wall, that scared the crap out of me since it woke me up out of my sleep! My only other issue is the parking lot, it's just horrible! I felt the spaces were too small and close. As always the staff was wonderful, again I wish people up north was just as friendly as the people in the south. They also offer breakfast, it was fulfilling for us, but you can always run to the local stores and purchase food and prepare your own meal(s) because there is a full kitchen with all of the utensils needed. In a nutshell, great hotel, wonderful staff, just a horrible parking lot.

Room Tip: Rooms that face the ocean directly are bigger than the rooms on the side of the building, also the c...

Parking garage was a poor design as others have already commented on. Other than that it is a great place to take the family! Rooms nice and spacious -- staff always available for help. Hot tub indoors broke down while we were there but the outside was good. Overall this is a great place to take the family -- location is wonderful.

Room Tip: 8th floor ocean front was perfect for us! Parents stayed in 8th floor side and ocean view and it was...

We had a great time at N. Myrtle Beach. The SeaSide Resort is at a great location with a beach that was not over crowded. It offers very large rooms, small kitchen, separate bedroom, combo washer and dryer in the closet and a good size patio. There is a small lazy river and pool indoors, as well as a small outdoor pool. It has an indoor garage in the base of building and as most have said in earlier reviews it's small. When we arrive I drove in but it was just too tight. We have a Prius which is a small car and it was tight to turn and park, but others had vans and SUVs in the garage. When two cars approach the corners there is only room for one to manuver and if it is large it may take two tries to make the turn. We parked in the lot across the street with plenty of room and had no issues. The service was just okay to average and please bring your license plate number when you check in or you maybe walking out to the garage to get it before you can finish checking in. The resort's location is a quick drive to both Tanger Outlet locations and lots of resturants. We only really experienced two inconveniences. First when we made our reservations. We requested for an "ocean view" room and verified it three times when we made the reservation and once again when we called back to confirm before departure. What we received when we checked in was a view of the building next door and street. BUT as we walked out on to the patio we could catch a glimpse of the ocean. We were really set on the "OCEAN VIEW" and wouldn't have made the reservation if it wasn't available. So when you make your reservation, I recommend a corner room with a "FULL OCEAN View," you'll need to be clear if you'd like an ocean facing view. Of course confirm they are NOT selling you a "Ocean SIDE (as in "side" of the building) View" or "Side Ocean View," it doesn't sound like ocean view and isn't. The other issue was the mattresses, they felt like they were well worn/old and left a couple of aching backs the next day. The couch sleeps okay for one person.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about the resort. Seaside has a lazy River, two pools, one inside and one out as well as a indoor spa and an outdoor one. For only 69 units is has probably the best ratio of water features to guest than any other resort I know of. There are days even it can get crowded but as you can tell by most guest’s comments this is not an issue with the Seaside. To help on the confusion with your request. The standard language that most hotels use is Ocean View and Side View are the terms for rooms that are not Ocean Front but you can still have a view from some point of the unit. Though it may be better to have more terms I have not seen any other. If you are wanting to have an unobstructed ocean front view then you need to request Ocean Front and not Ocean View. I do hope this helps you in making your next vacation plans and thank you again for letting us know of your concerns so we can help you, and our other guest, in the future.

We rented a 3bd 3ba oceanfront corner unit - it was really, really nice. I especially liked the wall of windows in the living room - it helped open the kind of narrow space up a little more. The rooms were a little tight, but they were more than adequate & there was actually a lot of storage space! The in unit washer/dryer was nice too. There is no real kid pool here, but the indoor pool & lazy river only have a maximum depth of 3-1/2 feet I believe it was, so both of my children could walk around in them nicely. There was no restaurant or ice cream shop & none within walking distance really, which is again where the parking issue comes up...the parking garage is the 1st 4 floors of the complex, and a tight fit, doesn't quite do justice to this place. They do, however, offer an uncovered lot across the street as well. I'm not sure I would call this a 'resort', as it lacks many on site amenities that a true resort would offer, such as a bar/lounge, restaurant (other than a continental breakfast), children's activities or pool or game room, etc - BUT, it is a very nice hotel & it is within a mile driving or walking distance to almost any restaurant you could want really. Also, I might add, we visit Myrtle multiple times a year & this is one of the nicer hotels in Myrtle/N Myrtle area we've stayed in & we typically stay in 3 or 4 bdrm condos.

This is our second trip to Myrtle and we much preferred this resort to the larger Ocean Creek facility. The size of the condo, with plenty of space for a family of five, had wonderful ocean views from the living and bedroom. I agree with the chilly pool comment, but the beach and the pool areas never felt crowded. Everyone was friendly and it was great to see so many happy families enjoying themselves together. The continental breakfast was pretty stale, and I would recommend bringing your own (don't forget coffee filters). But the kitchen and dining facilities in the condo make it easy to prepare food yourself, so you don't have to miss a minute on the beach. All in all, it was perfect for my family and we will be back.

Room Tip: Ocean view was worth the extra expense.

Thank you for the comments and observations about Seaside Resort. The Hotel does have a wonderful personal feel and I appreciate that you noticed and comments on it. I do want to apologize for the stale continental breakfast. That should not have occurred and we inventory our breakfast area and will throw away all food items before they can get stale. Thank you also for the positive statements about our staff and guests.

My family & i stayed in condo 1106 & 1103 very nice 3 bedroom corner units with great views & a lot of space for everyone. Condos very clean. Outdoor pool a little chilly but pool area very nice especially for the kiddos it was nice not to have to struggle for a pool chair as you would have to do at other resorts. Only downfall was the parking garage which was a minor issue because there's overflow parking across the street & traffic is not bad at this location. Great job seaside!

Thank you for taking the time to write about our resort and for the positive comments. The Hotel does have that wonderful small boutique feel and allows our guest to enjoy the view from the pool deck without the overcrowding at some resorts. Thank you again.
