Me and my wife stayed here while celebrating our 10 years of begin together. We arrived at 4:00 on Friday and checked in the check in was easy especially if you pre register. We where in our room by 4:15. We were on the 11th floor in the corner unit and there was no one in the room beside us. The room was clean and updated. The view was amazing and we loved the whirlpool bath. The restaurant was great and had amazing food. We ate there Friday night and Saturday night. We will definitely be back to stay.

We just stayed there as our original resort ‘flooded’ and moved us here. The view was great. However, we complained about the cleanliness of the room multiple times but nothing was done. They’d say someone would call us back and that phone call never came. Empty pop cans on the ground, hair in the bathtub, mold behind the bed, etc. and we were stuck there. They didn’t offer a partial refund nor to even come clean our room due to ‘Covid’. We paid over $1,500 for three nights and it wasn’t a great experience due to the uncleanliness. The toilet wasn’t even cleaned and the bed was to the ground. We were there for World Archery and had no other options as the city was booked due to the competition and the Country Music Festival. Again, behind the headboard was filthy with a lot of mold, I slept feet towards the headboard it was so musty, and nobody even came to address my concerns. No calls were returned and complaints weren’t acknowledged. Absolutely awful experience.

This was our 3x at Crown Reef, we had a great time each time !! Hotel is a little older, but they try to keep it up. The parking is terrible is get back early to get a parking space. But overall I would recommend, it was great for my family of 5!!

Great price, great amenities, friendly staff, clean rooms! My family loves visiting crown reef and that it offers everything you need. We love the arcade, all the pools and locko gecko. The beach isn't to crowded since it's one of the last hotels and the pier next to the hotel is nice and has spectacular views. This makes our 3rd time visiting crown reef and we look forward to our next stay! We have stayed in a few hotels in Myrtle beach and none of them stand close to crown reef! Check in is easy, the parking is great, overall a great experience when we come!
