We visited Myrtle Beach for a second time this year in April 2013 (due to sickness just now writing my review on this stay). I always go to tripadvisor before staying at any new hotel/motel and after reading all the high rated experiences by other people thought we'd give this one a try since it is right on the beach plus the price was great...we were highly disappointed! It's true "you get what you pay for" and next time I won't mind paying more to stay in a cleaner hotel. Upon check-in we noticed immediately the dust on headboards, nightstand, lampshade, etc. and beach sand in the sitting chairs (tried to get a picture but you couldn't make out what the sand was). The room smelled of smoke as well and we are non-smokers so naturally this also made for an unpleasant stay. This is an older hotel/motel and the doors open directly to the outside, we feel safer staying in places where you have to walk through lobby to get to rooms thus making it a little harder for robbery and other crimes. The bed linen did appear clean but the bed slept terrible, felt like the mattresses were cheap and not equipped to hold up several pounds b/c it felt like large sized ppl had slept on both sides and had worn them down and you were rolling off sides with a hump in the middle. All night it felt like we were constantly having to "climb up" to keep from falling off the sides. Thus making us believe mattresses not of good quality. The TV played well and received a lot of channels. Most of bathroom was clean but I tried to get a pic to show what appeared to be a small brown streak (questioned if dried feces) on the outside of the shower curtain. We could have but did not ask for a cleaning person b/c we don't want ppl in our room with our things esp. when we're not there and since we didn't have to touch it knew we could "get by" for two days (appeared like something a small child could have accidently done since commode is so very close to bathtub or even an adult for that matter and not have realized it). The shower head was very low since it is an older facility and we had to really bend to get our hair washed/rinsed. The water pressure was alright though. The heat/air unit worked well. The pool appeared clean although it wasn't opened yet, think they were trying to work on it, perhaps getting it ready to open for summer. The rooms are very close together and you could hear ppl walking by or knocking on other doors. I saw from the reviews about confusion with parking in the parking lot. I can understand how this happens since this isn't only a parking lot for the two hotels but also a beach access as well and this is where the meters come into play causing confusion even with signs up about being fined if parking in one without a handicap sign. We had to do most of our parking across the road at another hotel lot beside of that road and then cross the busy hyw to get back to hotel. We don't like having to park that far away and not being able to see vehicle esp. since we may forget and need something late at night or chance for break-in. This was a busy time with a lot of visitors, we think it was spring break time which explained so many ppl. The lady in the front office was very nice and we didn't have any trouble while there although we will probably not be staying here again. If you don't mind "rough'n it" this Inn is ok and beats "camping out" but only because of bathroom. The outside appearance for an older hotel is nice looking but don't be fooled by all the reviews of this being a "clean" place esp. if you like the comfort of home. The Inn is in a good location and close to eateries and shops.

Room Tip: To get a parking space without a meter and one in parking lot of hotel park early and don't leave! You can park in the metered spaces if you have a handicap placard without being fined. Check your room before you take your clothes in to make for sure it's clean and you want to stay here first.

The cleanliness will WOW you! It's in a perfect location. Close enough to walk down to all of the shops & attractions, but far enough away that you can have peace & quite. The owners are amazing people & are there to help with whatever you may need. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

I recently spent four nights at the Admiral Inn. My room was very clean and neat. The staff was very caring. The location is great being near the boardwalk. We have booked two more stays , maybe another one before the summer is over. We have always enjoyed the smaller Motels and this one is great. Thanks Teresa for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Smaller motels have no elevators, thank goodness.

My wife recently spent 7 nights at the Admiral Motor Inn. We totally enjoyed our stay. We weren't looking for the latest in furnishings, but we want a place that is clean, where the management cares about the customer. We found this at the Admiral. An added bonus is the central location.We also enjoyed the indoor pool next door which guests at the Admiral are free to use.

Room Tip: Enjoyed 2nd floor with a balcony overlooking the ocean

We took a recent spur of the moment gettaway 4/26-4/28/13, for the cost, this hotel is unbeatable,
very clean, staff were great and Teresa even stayed a little later as she knew we would be arriving late. The room had a great view over the boardwalk and very close to the pier, parking was limited but that was ok, we found a spot and just left the car parked all weekend as about everything we wanted to do and see was within walking distance. Only area of concern was we had very limited (if any) internet service, but ya know, who goes to the beach to spend the weekend in front of the computer?..I do that enough at home. Thanks to Teresa and the staff for making our weekend gettaway enjoyable, We'll be back...
