“Great Surprize!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2005

We just returned from a week at this Days Inn which is right on one of the nicest beaches in the Grand Strand area. I was expecting the typical no-frills, run down, "oh well it's better than nothing" kind of experience I have had at other Days Inn hotels. I am pleased to report that I was pleasantly surprized at this hotel! It was extremely clean! Perfect for families who don't want the commercialization of the Myrtle Beach strip. Our room was the closest to the ocean so sitting on the balcony at night watching the late night swimmers and joggers was very relaxing. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant on site is more of a diner - good for breakfast. But there are about 4 other restaurants adjacent to the property which were very good and you could find just about anything you wanted. The ice cream shop across the street was great as well. All in all I would definitely stay here again since it has everything I wanted at a very reasonable price.

The website for this hotel does not do it justice. We could not have asked for better service. The staff was great. Not one of them passed us and did not speak. The maid service was punctual everyday. The restaurant in the hotel is great. The waitresses are super friendly, and the food is cooked to your liking. The surrounding restaurants are great. We ate at all of them (Latitude 22, Nibils (great seafood and try the peanut butter pie), Bubbas Fish Shack (steamed shrimp is wonderful) and River City Cafe). There is a gift shop across the street and an arcade and ice cream shop. There are two bars, one is part of the hotel and the other one is across the street. Plenty of nightly entertainment at the one owned by the hotel (Scottys Beach Bar) kareoke, luau, live bands etc... You could park your car at the beginning of your vacation and never have to move it till you leave for home. Perfect!!!! Already planning for next year!

We have stayed at the Days Inn Resort on several March vacations and are always treated very well by the staff. The rooms are clean, inexpensive and relatively quiet. The beach is uncrowded and beautiful.
The nearby restaurants offer a variety of tasty fare. "Nibils" on the pier is particularly good! The Days Inn has been recently renovated and offers an ideal setting for an ocean-front holiday.

This hotel is wonderful!!! The rooms are spotless. It is close to everything but far enough away from the hustle and bustle for you to relax. All of the staff, from the front desk clerk, to the maids were so nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

If you check out Days Inn Surfside Beach's web site, you can take a virtual tour of the rooms. We booked a standard room and it was exactly as shown, with 2 double beds, small refrigerator and microwave, coffee maker (with coffee, sugar, creamer) and a hair dryer. The furniture isn't new, but the entire room was spotless. It was wonderful waking up and being able to see the ocean from the bed closest to the balcony.
The staff is very friendly and check-in was a breeze, they let us have our room an hour early. The pool and hot tub are a bit small but were nice. There is a fishing pier next door and besides the hotel restaurant there are bars and other restaurants on either side and across the street. This is a very nice place to stay in a more quiet setting as opposed to Myrtle Beach and the price was very reasonable.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place.

We absolutely love the Days Inn Surfside Beach. It is much more quiet than Myrtle Beach but you are still close enough to drive anywhere. My daughter loves to eat breakfast at the hotel restaurant!!! We would recommend this to anyone. Very affordable!!!

I stayed here two years ago. The rooms were the smallest I have ever seen and the balcony was only big enough for one person. The staff WILL make you wait if you check in early. I had to wait 3 hours. The restaurant prices at the time were overpriced. If you want to stay at a Motel close to a pier, stay at Springmaid Beach Resort. I will stay at a Days Inn but not this one again.
