I almost hate to write this review as it seems that The Inlet Sports Lodge is the best kept lodging secret in the Murrells Inlet area and that I'm letting the secret out. With only 34 rooms, the exceptionally well maintained lodge, top-notch rooms/room layout, and the awesome Costa on-site restaurant, the lodge just seems that it would sell out... More

The Inlet Sports Lodge in Murrell's Inlet consistently goes above and beyond. Beautiful Facility, Unexpected amenities and a Staff beyond measure. Mr. Akers, one of the GM's goes out of his way to please and accomodate all guests. Have stayed there twice and enjoyed each trip. Would recommend it to anyone!

Spent the night here and can't wait to come back. The bed was so comfortable and the fan kept the room cool. The Lodge is located within a mile of the marsh walk and all the wonderful restaurants there. The shower was awesome!

Ran across this lodge on Trip Advisor while looking for a place in Murrells Inlet near Huntington Beach area. Wow! What a find! This hotel is so much nicer than the local chains in the area.

If you're traveling with an infant, you'll have to come up with sleeping arrangements other than a hotel-provided crib because they don't offer them. The rooms are great, with full kitchen (stove only, no oven). Very nice small pool and courtyard. Easy access to Huntington Beach state park and brookgreen gardens.

The hotel itself was beautiful. Full kitchen with all the amenities. Granite countertops, full refrig, multiple jets in shower. More than we needed. The hotel atmosphere was cold. Staff not friendly and we felt this uncomfortable feeling. Beds uncomfortable. Door to washer/dryer kept locked. Breakfast was very limited. I would have rather had a more pleasant stay instead of granite... More

Our efficiency suite at Inlet Sports Lodge was clean, roomy, and comfortable. The wooden floors and wood paneled doors were a nice touch. The bathrooms were updated with amazing jets in the shower. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room came fully equipped with everything you could need.

We stayed here at the Inlet Sports Lodge for our 30th anniversary and had a great time. The staff was helpful, the room was comfortable and unique, unlike other hotels. It is basically a tiny house......we joked that we could probably live there because it had a 2-burner stove, microwave, sink, fridge, plates, bowls, utensils, even had a small dishwasher!... More
