I was looking for a decent place on the ocean that wouldn't kill my wallet...Found it! For what it is, it's pretty darn nice. We had a great time and the room was just fine. Sure, the appliances could be replaced and carpet could definitely go...but it's great for the money compared to the other hotels in the area charging... More

The only thing going for it was the proximity to the beach and Boardwalk. The rooms were dingy. They were ok clean like visiting a 90 year old aunt clean but old. The only time the room gets really cleaned by the maids is when you check in. They fan your wash cloths and you get fresh coffee pot and... More

Overall, don't pay mind to the negative reviews about this hotel! I can't get over how PERFECT the location of this hotel is. My boyfriend and I stayed for a weekend, and were by all of the things we're interested in doing - There's a putt-putt course next door and an awesome arcade just a couple of blocks away; Shops...

I wish I had the option of giving less than 1 star. My fiancé and I didn't even have the chance to stay here because this sorry hotel lies and scams people out of their money. We have tickets to The Carolina Country Music Festival so I was looking for a cheap hotel close enough so we could walk. I... More

My girlfriend and I have visited Myrtle Beach 3 times in the past 2 years and we've used the Diplomat as home base for every trip. Its a great spot if you like walking around the strip at night because it's so close to the action. Its not a high end resort but for the price you cant beat it!

As some of the other reviews have pointed out this motel is definitely dated. The furniture is old and some of the appliances need updating. But aside from that and a few small cleanliness issues the bed was comfortable and the price you couldn't beat. Plus the location. Right next to the boardwalk and 20 yards from the beach.

We have stayed at the Diplomat a few times and always enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the rates incredibly reasonable and the location amazing. It's right on the beach and we had a wonderful view of the sunrise over the ocean from our room. It's an old school Motel that's been around longer than most... More
