Pros: Clean, smells fresh (not moldy as some beach properties do) friendly staff. Clean appliances. Fridge and appliances and dishes to cook! VERY helpful to keep costs of meals down. RIGHT on the beach. Lazy river for kids (my... More

Check in was speedy, our room was clean and comfortable the only suggestion I could make is making the breakfast area larger. There were 4 bar stools and 15 toptables for approx. 20 FLOORS this was not very accommodating. The shortage of pool towels was annoying but when I looked out on the beach and saw the yellow beach towels... More

The location was great, with very nice balcony. But the room was so nasty and dirty. We had to mop the floors with our washcloths and towels so our feet wouldn't stick. Roaches, bigs ones, breakfast was horrible and staff was rude and unhelpful. Would not stay there again or suggest it for anyone else.

Normally we stay each year at another resort but this year my grandson was playing in the Triple Crown Baseball Tournament. All the Baseball Teams stay here. We thought Carolinian was a great place to stay. Our room was perfect, absolutely no complaints...We loved having a washer/dryer in our room. A must when washing uniforms every day. But I think...

So far so good. Check in was easy. We arrived at 1pm and our room wasn't ready. They took my number and called us when it was. Rooms were clean and inviting. We booked online and didn't think to ask for a room higher up. We ended up on the 2nd floor overlooking the pool and ocean. We thought it... More

Maid service didn't even come the last 3 days and the days they did come they didn't bother to vacuum. People were spitting and throwing things off the higher balconies. My friends son... More

This was our first trip ever to Myrtle Beach, so we were a bit unfamiliar with the area and where to stay. This place had good reviews, therefore we chose it. The area it was located appeared to be "budget friendly" area of Myrtle Beach. Staff was very friendly ! Amenities were not what they professed them to be. No... More
