My family spent a two days here over spring break. The hotel is slightly aged (especially noticeable by sinks, fixtures, etc.) but it's clean and the decor is reasonably updated. The rooms come with a balcony with a nice view of the ocean, though the balcony is extremely small. The biggest plus for this hotel is the amazing location. There are three immediate entrances from the hotel parking lot directly onto the beach, right next to the pier in Surfside Beach. I couldn't have asked for a better location. I got a great deal on the room (super deal on Groupon) but if I had had to pay the full $450 stated rate, I probably would've been disappointed.
