This year was much better then last year, No trouble at all very quiet actually not even loud drunks out there . Seemed very subdued this year it was full house it seemed . No extra parking spaces but it was ok.

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

After many hours of searching online for a reasonably priced place to stay for our vacation to Myrtle Beach, we settled on the Wave Rider Resort. Even though there were many many terrible reviews & a few positive ones we decided to give it a try and boy do we regret it! We arrived about 10:15 on Friday night September... 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

The room smelled of stale beer, urine and throw up. Toilet was broken and the "kitchen" was a wreck. Asked for a refund, was told no. I was told to go "settle in my room, I'll be fine". My kids didn't feel safe either. Do NOT stay here!!!!
