This is the third time that we have stayed here. This place is always comfortable, clean, and has a convenient location. The front desk staff is the hardest working staff that I have seen (besides the housekeeping staff). The rooms are very quiet and it feels like home. The kitchen, the dishwasher, and the washer/dryer are the best! The elevators... More

Our stay at Avista was nothing short of amazing. We stayed on the 4th floor in a 1 bedroom suite in Rm 421. We were near the elevator and Fitness Rm. The only negative things I could share are: When vacationers arrive try and have a pleasant smiling staff. After a long trip, albeit 2 or 12 hours, a friendly... More

This was the first time we had stayed in North Myrtle Beach as we usually stay in Myrtle Beach. This was a last minute trip and Avista provided the room size we needed at a reasonable price. The beach was amazing and loved it so much more in North Myrtle. I was worried about the resort after reading some of... More

The Avista would probably be considered a nice resort only in the Myrtle Beach area, based on where I've stayed on past visits. I only come here for an annual lacrosse tournament - otherwise would not pay these prices for seriously sub-par accommodations. That said, the room was fine -- in definite need of a deep clean and a new... More

Thank you for staying with us and hope everyone had a good time at the tournament. Yes these are all separately owned condo units which we rent out similar to a hotel except twice the space for the same money. Owners may have added some upgrades so when making a reservation you should always ask for an upgraded unit. We... More

Avista is starting to show its age and needs a remodel. The hotel was clean, but the bathroom fan was falling out of the ceiling, some mold in the bathtub and old thin blankets that beg to be replaced. The beds and the murphy bed was comfortable. The worst part was the fire alarm is set to go off EVERY... More

Thank you for the review and for sharing your thoughts. I did want to help clarify a few for our guests. Unfortunate the warm moist air can set off the alarm but normally if they door is not left open you do not have this problem. I also noted your concerns with the pool area security locks.

We have stayed at many beachfront resorts over the past 20 years, and the Avista is one of our favorites! Great views, excellent accommodation options (for a family of 6-8), nice guestroom finishing touches, and very clean! Our 3-bedroom was amazing, with whirlpool tub, granite kitchenette counters, and very comfortable beds and living room furniture. We will definitely stay again... More
