Poindexter, Catoe Villa, Sea Crest - none of the above?

My boyfriend and I are looking for a place in May in Myrtle Beach that is inexpensive but clean and reasonably quiet, and within walking distance to the clubs and beach. The budget options I have seen so far that fit these criteria are the three above. After reading the reviews of the Poindexter I'm a little wary. We don't care about the pools or dining facilities - I just don't want to feel like I need a proper delousing after I stay in any of these places! Thanks!

The Poindexter is part of a resort that also includes the Atlantica, which has more condo type rooms as opposed to the Poindexter's regular hotel rooms. I stayed at the Atlantica and my room was fabulous...very clean and updated and great view of the ocean. My sister and her boyfriend stayed at the Poindexter and theyre room was decent but not as nice as our's was. We think this was because it was a smoking room though....there were burns on practically everything but other than that the room was pretty nice. So I would say you would probably be safe going with the Poindexter if they can guarantee you a non-smoking room....even if you smoke, I think it would be a good idea so that you have a better room. For people under 25 (I'm not sure if you are) this hotel seems to be the best one for the best price I have found. It is also in a perfect location for going to most of the clubs in myrtle (Freaky Tiki and Mother Fletchers are both in walking distance and from what I understand you can take the Lymo Bus to Club Kryptonite) and it is right on the beach. If you have any other questions just let me know!
