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. Staff is helpful and friendly. The grounds are well kept and rooms are exceptionally clean. Within walking distance to Marshwalk. They also have an... More

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.

Generally we liked the facility. It is not modern. Think of it as quaint. Nice kitchenette in the room. The lodge is pretty well located. Did not find the staff particularly helpful. We had significant issues signing on to wifi and the bandwidth was ridiculously narrow. We are probably over deviced as a couple. We carry a laptop, two tablets... More

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

This motel is designed with sport people in mind, but we stayed here on a family visit and it is very comfortable. The AC worked well, and was relatively quiet. Bathrooms updated.
