Our stay at the island vista was duing the week of 10/21/2012. Located in an old MB neighborhood right on the beach. Rented a 3 bedroom oceanfront condo on the 6th floor. Fantastic view, very spacious rooms, plenty of closet space. Checkin was smooth and quick. Housekeeping was very good, condo was very clean upon arrival. Mattresses were good. As... More

We arrived at the Island Vista at about 5 PM on Friday 19/26/12. Check-in was a breeze, and a bellman helped us unload our luggage. HE and my wife took the luggage to the room while I parked our car. The garage situation is interesting, on a fall weekend with a hurricane passing by the area the parking was not... More

Great spot! What really makes this cool is that it's located on the beach, tucked back in an old MB neighborhood. Rooms are big and clean and certainly a bargain off season. The hotel has both an indoor and outdoor pool so the kids are for sure to have a good time even in the off season, regardless of the... More

The room and view were awesome! We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath for just the two of us. But this was all we could book the same week we were leaving to get a ocean front view from our balcony! I booked it for pay 3 nights and get the fourth free which was better than the 20 o/o... More

I stayed here back in September 2012 over labor day weekend for a family reunion. This is a nice functional hotel, rooms are relatively clean, however, parking garages are pretty small and if you have a big car, it's kind of tricky getting in and out of the spaces on the upper levels of the garages. The view from my... More

We recently returned from Island Vista. It was our first visit to this resort. September is a lovely month to visit. We had a varied age group, 14, 56, 60 and 73. Mickey, at the front desk is very accommodating and friendly. I loved the in house pizza that could be delivered to your room or one could eat downstairs... More

This was a great resort-like option. It was peaceful, pleasant and had a "wow" oceanfront view. Stunning! This location was also great if you can not decide between North Myrtle and Myrtle Beach. This is in a quiet residential area with a little park across the street. The one bedroom ocean front penthouse that we were upgraded to was absolutely... More

My husband and I just returned from Myrtle Beach where we spent 4 nights at Island Vista. Our initial impression was not very good. We arrived a little early (3 pm) on a Monday and were told our room was not ready yet (check in is 4 pm). We checked back at the desk at 4 pm and were told... More

We had a 5 night stay at this hotel. As a self confessed germaphobe I was very impressed with how clean it was. The staff we interacted with were all very polite and friendly. We were upgraded from a 2 bedroom to a 3 on the PH level and the place was huge and very nicely decorated and clean. The... More

Very clean units, staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. The room was over the top, very large, nicely furnished, great views, and what a... More
