“comfortable stay”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I had a 2 night stay at Palmetto it was the best stay ever the room was clean and immediatly we felt at home. the rate was pretty good, but the workers were very polite. Especially Bob, Chris, and the housekeeper Cammile. Palmetto Shores is by far the MOST welcoming experience we have had at myrtle beach! We want to return as soon as we get our Money up. :) The view on the beach front was AMAZING!! We will return ASAP! .The patio was our only complaint..one of the waitresses reached right over us as we were eating. she was very butch.

I had a 3 night stay at Palmetto Shores (August 5-8th). Here are some of the things that really made my vacation unpleasant: dirty room, TV remote did not initially work (someone came up and replaced the remote), old appliances in the kitchen areas, toilet tissue holder hanging from the wall, paint peeling, room phone did not work. On the second day we asked to move to another efficiency oceanfront, 2 queen beds on a higher floor-wish granted. This room had the toilet holder broken and laid on top of the commode , once again we had another room with old kitchen appliances, the patio window was smeared with a white cloudy film (which means we could not enjoy the oceanfront scenery from the window), bed pillows were FLAT, I don't know how often they change the comforters but the ones on our bed smelled like smoke. I called the front desk to ask them to send someone to clean the windows thinking this would correct the problem in our oceanfront room. I was told that the cleaning team had attempted to clean it but there was nothing that could be done. The front desk clerk said the windows were old and probably damaged from the sand from the ocean. I asked to speak to a manager on duty and was told that the manager was not available. I asked the front desk clerk if he would have the manager call my room when he/she returns and he responded that he would definitely ask the manager to give me a call. I NEVER RECEIVED A RETURNED CALL FROM THE MANAGER. The best thing this hotel has going is location. Too bad the owners of this property does not realize the power of satisfied customers. Satisfied customers promote your business.......
I would not stay here again and definitely would not recommend this location to others.

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I will look into the issue with the windows and see which ones are clouded over. We do try to replace pillows as needed and wash spreads frequently. My apologies from me and my staff for a less than enjoyable stay.

I traveled from N.Ireland to visit family, in West Virginia, in July, and, before going home, I decided to treat us all to a holiday at the beach. I booked,online, the penthouse at Atlantica, Palmetto Shore, Myrtle Beach, assuming that "penthouse" meant "a cut above the rest!"-------I was sadly mistaken!
We arrived on Sunday 22nd July,at 8 p.m,after a 9 hour car journey and I was totally horrified by the condition of the accommodation. The sheets had not been changed, there were "grape" stalks on the carpet, there was no toilet roll, and, worst of all, there was a piece of glass on the bathroom floor! We were all very tired and hungry after our journey, and my son did arrange to have the rooms cleaned. They were, as we ate our pizza!
As a widowed pensioner, who had saved long and hard for this trip to the "states", I was not satisfied, and, the following day, I talked to Chris,the manager, who assured me of his complete attention, and offered us a refund of 1 day's rental. I accepted this,as I wanted to spend time with my family , not arguing with management!
Since coming home,I have checked my credit card account and no refund has appeared!
The full rental,of course, has been deducted!
From reading trip advisor ,this has happened before---not a good ad. for overseas or local guests!!
All smiles and handshakes when you are there--- all forgotten when you leave!!
This experience marred an otherwise happy trip--- other travelers be warned!

Room Tip: opt for low floors as lifts are very erratic!!

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. I can see your point about the Penthouse classification for a room. The designation really refers more to location of the room versus square footage and amenties. Again, I apologize for a stay that did not meet expectations.

Thank you for the great weekend! When we first arrived and saw our quarters, we definitely didn't expect our trip to go as we planned from that point on. However, Chris (the night manager) proved himself very capable and made sure we were as comfortable as possible. He turned a bad situation into an awesome experience!Thank you so much Chris!

Simply put, our experience at the Palmetto Shores Resort was great! We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo in the Atlantica Building and it was perfect. The location is walking distance from the shopping area. The pools are good, though some GROWN UP guests get into the pool without rinsing off the sand from the beach, so sand in the pool is to be expected. You should definitely consider staying for a vacation in Myrtle Beach.
