The Wave Rider can be a great situation if you find a good private unit through Airbnb or some other website. During the off season, nothing is working though. The pools are both down. The location is excellent though. For a family or people on a tight budget this is a good option if you find a clean unit.

The wave rider pools were closed. Asked about the condo they had for sale. The lady at the front desk knew nothing and did not know who to refer us too. If your thinking of staying a night forget about it, this place is useless.

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!!...

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...

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...

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...
