3 couples ranging 30-40s and 1 whiny 14 yr old boy, MB repeats. We come every year and have progressively been upgrading hotels every few years. Sunday to Saturday, end of July. So, check in was relatively easy, although upon first glance, looked as if it would be horrid. There were 2 lines that wrapped around several times. Staff was... More

Two friends and I went for a girls trip, and it was their first trip to Myrtle Beach. We arrived to a huge line snaking through the lobby for check-in but were pleasantly surprised at how quickly it moved. Cannot say enough how friendly and efficient the front desk staff were, especially Deidra! We ended up staying an extra day... More

Our group consisted of four adults and three children ages 8, 4 and one month old. The lobby clerk checked in and... More

We arrived a little early and they went ahead and gave us our passes for the pools and lazy river until our room was ready. Staff is very friendly. They have plenty of kiddie pools for the little ones. The beach is right behind the hotel. Perfect view. Best hotel in town.

Forced to stay at this hotel during a visit to Myrtle Beach due to the unavailabily of rooms at nearby hotels. From the outside it looks great, but I'd only give it a 1-star on the scale of value for money. It's way-overpriced for what it is ... a big motel rather than a modern hotel on the beachfront. The...

Had a bad start with check-in. Then Manager Chrystal came to our rescue. She made what could have been a bad experience a wonderful vacation in the Pinnacle Tower. The suite was very nice and we loved having coffee on our oceanfront balcony watching the sun come up. The location is great and not crowded. The Security people are great... More
