There are some terrible reviews of this place on trip advisor! These rooms are individually owned so I guess some rooms are worse than others. I found a good deal on Craigslist for this hotel. Thank God the owner is awesome! My room is so clean! When we got here, she was cleaning the floor on her hands and knees!!... More

It only let the kitchen area be comfortable. The rest of the unit was barely bearable. I seen 4 water bugs through the course of the week.... More

The hotel booking was quick and easy. The hotel employees where very friendly and willing to help with anything I needed. The hotel rooms were clean however I do suggest doing some upgrading there was some mold in the bathroom between the tub and the sink. The wood around the sink had rotting wood and the carpet was filthy. The... More

Forget any night action on the laptop. There is no phone in room. They are listed as full kitchen. There wasn't a single plate, cup,... More

First I'd like to say I have stayed in dated hotels to save a buck and had no problems. I'm dissapointed trip adviser would even let anyone rent these rooms from wave rider. Someone from somewhere needs to condemn this place. Whenever I get to a hotel and enter a room I check the corner of the mattresses for bugs... More

We came to Myrtle Beach for a short vacation before our kids returned to school. The location of this hotel is very close to the beach which was great. I cant complain about the price because it was affordable, and nice that we could book it with only a deposit and pay the remainder as we checked in. We stayed... More
