“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

I just returned from staying at the Surfside Beach Resort (formerly the Days Inn Surfside Beach Resort) in Surfside Beach, SC. I am so glad to see the property re-opened and renovated. We have been staying here for 15+ years and the property looks great. The Management and Staff go out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. The newly renovated rooms and lobby area looks great and the property is so convient to everything. The beach looks much wider than years past and walking out on the pier is always fun.
Can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Ask for the higher floors on the east side of the building to get a great view of the ocean.

I have to say that Surfside Beach Resort is a GREAT place to stay. Clean, comfortable rooms but reasonable prices. The staff is friendly and it's in a perfect location with everything you need within walking distance. I won't stay anywhere else!

You cannot beat the location of this hotel--just steps from the beach in an area which is heavily residential, although there were a couple of bars/restaurants nearby.

I found the place very comfortable--not fancy or posh, but comfortable. Having a good sized refrigerator and a microwave would make it very handy for a family. I never used the microwave, but did find the refrigerator useful. The beds were comfortable, The room was clean. The staff I dealt with from cleaning personel to reception were all polite, friendly and helpful. If you want a 5 star experience, this is not for you. But if you want a comfortable hotel on the beach in a great location, you might consider this hotel. I could quibble about a few things such as a lamp that I never quite mastered the controls on. I think someone said the elevator was slow.. ah, you are on vacation. there is no need to rush. Now I was there in November, so didn't have the sliding doors open. I can't say that there was any problem with noise.

My wife and i were at your hotel for our 16th wedding anniversary, we had stayed at your hotel back when it was the Day's Inn and thought it was very nice at that time, upon our arrival this time we seen that the name had changed to the Surfside Beach resort and it had been remodeled.
We were greated at the front desk by Ken and Kacie both were very nice and had us checked in in few short minutes, upon going into our room the temp was perfect and the room was wonderful, very nice view.

I wanted to take my wife someplace very special for our anniversary so i went to the front desk and Ken gave me a list of nice places to chose from and the evening turned out very nice, Thanks to Ken.
Several times during oyr ten day stay we ended up at the front desk asking for advise for places to go and things to do, Nikki and Kacie were very helpful in locating places for us to visit.

Both my self and my wife felt like we were part of the front desk family and we have nothing but prase for the front desk staff, we were so pleased by how we were treated that i ask to speak to the GM of the Hotel and advised him as well.
A few days in to our stay while going down to the beach we seen a gentlemen in the hallway that seemed to be following a maid in her daily route, as we walked past he ask how we were enjoying our stay, he was with the group that rates hotels, he was a most pleasant person and he was advised as well as to our stay.

This is the ONLY HOTEL that we will ever stay in while in Myrtle Beach, the hotel apears to have hand picked the front desk staff from the very best, when you walk into a hotel and you are addressed by your first name and ask how your day was and if there is anything that they can do to make your stay better and more enjoyble, well i think that says it all.
Ken was wonderful as well as Kacie, Nikki, Jessi, and Bill, you are truly what the hotels need to make it today.

We have told quite a few people since we have been home several have trips planed for that area and will be staying with you all as well.

In closing THANK YOU for making our 16th Wedding Anniversary as special as it was and we very much look forward to comming back and seeing all of you.

Room Tip: The 6th floor room has a perfect view on the odd number side

i have stayed in a number of hotels in the past and i must admit the surfside ranks at the top. I'd like to say they are second to none Their staff i am sorry i cant remember all their names but i do remember nikki ,casey and steve were most helpful. Being from New York we tend to forget that there are other people who go out of their way to make a persons life a little less stressful.The hotel lives up to its name surfside they are steps away from the beach.The rooms are spotless with amenities that include at least 100 tv stations coffee and tea in case you feel like a cup during the day or night microwave and refrigerator. The beds are very comfortable.Last to say the terrace is nice to sit on at night with a night cap of ones choice and look and listen to the melody of the surf.

The best thing about Surfside Beach Resort is it's location. The Surfside community is much quieter than Myrtle Beach and this hotel It's just a few steps from the beach. There's good restaurants and Surfside Pier within 75 yards. However, Surfside Resort is no resort. The rooms are basic with limited amenities (no iron/board) and cheap furnishings. The hot shower water was warm at best. If you just want an inexpensive place to lay your head to enjoy the beach and local food, then Surfside Resort isn't a bad value.

Room Tip: Ask for a remodeled room
