“Good Times”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I was in the area visiting family and stayed here with them for a day. The building is a little old but there is lots of stuff to do there. They have a nice pool area and if you love Bingo you will get your fill :-). The room was nice but like I said it is a little dated. The staff is very friendly and very outgoing looking to please you any way they can. The room was facing the beach which was very nice but there was not much of a balcony to stand on. It was actually kind of scary.

Stayed during Spring Break/St. Paddys/cheer confrence/huge car show. Town was insanity with the crowds. Location is right on main drag near the night parties. Windows thin and old so you can hear every car on the road out front. Parking is across the street so be careful. Traffic is very heavy. Rooms are oldish but all have ocean view. Get one as high up as possible. Sunrise is great. Very sweet and helpful staff. Ocean is steps away and wonderful. Clearly the best feature of the resort.

We stayed in the "Penthouse" suite with a southern exposure. The ocean is right there and there's an indoor pool. Absolutely magnificent! It's THE place to stay at when in Myrtle Beach. We love it there and our place to stay of choice.

Room Tip: I love it it is high up as possible. Either a northern or southern view is fine.

A friend and I stayed at the Yachtsman just over a month ago. We were pleased to see the boardwalk finished which allowed us to visit the new and already existing businesses in that immediate area. Close to everything, the Yachtsman was also a very clean and very friendly place to stay. We had absolutely no complaints about anything.

Room Tip: Not sure that there are any bad rooms here....at least none that I could see.

Stayed for a few days at the Yachtsman Resort in Myrtle Beach.
Prime location! Could walk to everything that we wanted to and if we needed to drive, other attractions weren't that far.
The condo was average. It was clean, but could have used some updating. But, it is what you'd expect of an older condo building in a resort beach town.
Loved that the pools and hot tubs were still open while we were staying there and the beach was nice! And yeah, the balconies are step out only...but, it wasn't that bad.
I would stay here again. If you're into "no frills" accomodations and are used to true "resort" lodging, this place isn't so bad.

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty much the same. But try to get one away from the elevators and on a higher f...

The location of the Yachtsman is only one of it's best features. Friendly staff. Sits in front of one of the best restaurants in Myrtle Beach, Pier 14. The brand new boardwalk begins right on the property. Awesome views of the beach, all units are oceanfront. Can see the all new Skywheel just a short walk away as well as all the other attractions. This is one of the first timeshare properties in MB and one of the oldest, but is well maintained, very clean, well stocked. Once you get settled in just about anything you could want is a short walk away. Of course there are many wonderful restaurants, shows, theaters and other attractions in the area. Overall a wonderful place to stay, and beautiful little beach town.

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront, so just depends on the size of your family.

Just got home from a 4-night stay in the south tower on the 9th floor. Our room had a king bed in the bedroom (great for parents needing privacy since it had a door with a lock), a queen sleeper sofa in the living area and a set of bunk beds built inside of a little cubby area (perfect for small kids). Probably the biggest disappointment is the balcony, its literally only big enough to step out on. I was really wanting to sit out there and enjoy the perfect breeze, but it did offer a screened sliding door so we used that to cool the room & turned off the a/c. The wind blowing off the ocean felt wonderful!! The king bed was big, but very hard & uncomfortable!! And I am not one to complain at all but my back was so sore when I woke up every morning! My teens used to sleeper sofa & said it wasn't too bad but still hard. On a positive note the room was very clean & the kitchen has everything you need - even a measuring cup & can opener! The room we were in had an oceanfront view & when you walked out the front door you could view the strip which was pretty cool. I probably would not go back b/c the balcony is a deal breaker for me but its an okay hotel.
