Dayton House Resort is celebrated for its welcoming atmosphere and prime Myrtle Beach location, with guests often citing easy access to beachside pleasures. The hotel's lively ambiance and personalized service, especially from breakfast staff like Hager and Brenda, earn rave reviews. However, some travelers have expressed concerns over noise levels and call for room renovations. While the Rose Room and pools are highlights, guests have mixed feelings about the value, cleanliness, and room conditions, with a desire for modern updates and consistent housekeeping.

Corner room with balcony from bedroom to living room. You can see the beach and the city. Full kitchen setup - stove, refrigerator, and microwave. Great amenities. Indoor pool. Near everything - Walmart, Dollar Tree, and Captain George's. Great hot breakfast - eggs, regular grits, cheese grits, bacon, sausage, and waffle. The best staff - smiling and friendly. They are very helpful.

Excellent service, rooms were clean and neat! We asked for an ocean side and it did not disappoint!! There is plenty of beach access for walking and shelling. The front desk was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in giving us names of other establishments to visit. We enjoyed it thoroughly!! We will come back again!

Great location for what we needed. We had a 1BR oceanfront. Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom too small. Kitchen was not stocked well at all. Sheets were very old. No comforter on bed. Elevators were fast. The folks in the breakfast area were super friendly. The food was above average.

The food was absolutely delicious and I loved the setup. There were so many options and they were not skimpy on the portions. Ms. Brenda was such a gracious hostess, very helpful and had a very pleasant sense of humor. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience. I just wish the parents of small children were more attentive and wouldn't allow the children to run and play while dining.

Enjoyed my stay at Dayton house as always, I normally stay here once or twice a year and have never experienced any problem that wasn't handled fast and professionally. The Rose room free breakfast is delicious and the staff is very good at accommodations and variety of food choices. Lille was very polite and it was a pleasure having her to look out for us.

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at the Dayton House. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Everyone from the front desk to House keeping made this trip special. Special shout out to Hage and the breakfast crew for making us feel welcome every morning! Lots of little changes going on around the property that will make it even better to come back to. We are looking forward to our next visit here!
