“Over look the age..”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We booked this last minute for a weekend getaway. The staff was terrific we got into town earlier than planned. And checked if our room had been booked as it was done enroute to MB. Trey not only was nice but allowed us in so we where able to freshen up.
Yes place is dated.. and it shows. But staff and price and location make up for it. We walked every where we needed. Use trip advisor app to find all the hole in the wall places to eat play and shop. We never used pool or fitness center. But seen it inuse the whole time we stayed. My major complaints. The router is on ur night stand.. had to block the lights on dash as they are bright. Lack of toiletries but I always pack spares. Toliet slowly flushed. Single set of pillows (two pillows for a queen bed.) Asked for more later that night. And extras were brought up. Main door to room stuck. Had to foot open and close door. Now plus sides place is on the beach. Staff is great even those that seemed uninterested in service did their job. Location this place is minutes walking distance to everything we wanted to do. Price in the off season was what a meal for two would cost.
Would stay here again not for the hotel but location and price can't be beat.!

The staff were very nice and attended to our every need. The rooms were very clean and even smelled clean. The kitchen although small had everything that we needed. The cleaning crew were very nice and did their job very well. This beach get away was much needed and this hotel was top notch. We will definitely stay here again. The only part I disliked was the fact that we only got to spend 5 days there. Thank you Palmetto Shores for everything.

I like the location, Close to the Boardwalk. (walkable) The room was nice. However we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. From what I can tell the standard rooms are not as nice. Parking was fine. (across the street) We were there the week after Labor Day so it was not that crowded. If you can get a good price, its worth a try.

Okay if you are looking for a 5 star hotel keep on looking. This hotel is in serious need of a major renovation!! It is very old and tired looking, the ice machine in the main part of the hotel did not work, the hot tub was also not working. Our room was clean but the house keeper left no soap or shampoo, guess it is a good thing I carry our own.

Now on the plus side it was right on the beach where we spent most of our time, and the staff was very friendly especially Briana who checked our group in and made sure that we were all on the same floor close to each other. I also thank Ronnie a maintance man who told us that we could use the hot tub and pools at the other Atlantic facility when he saw us sitting in the half working one.

Would I stay there again, probably not.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean on the second floor or higher, you will LOVE the view

This was by far the worst place we have ever stayed in Myrtle Beach!! The first room we got had such a terrible smell that we had to be moved to another room. That one smelled better but had lots of other issues...air conditioner didn't work properly, fridge made noise all the time, toilet did not want to flush, roaches, no maid service, and the list could go on and on. After talking with the front desk staff, I now understand...they are actually shutting these three buildings down at the end of Novemeber...destroying one (Coral) and turning the other two (Waves - the one we stayed in, and Sands) into condos. I told them when we left early that I would never stay there again!!! Don't stay here...spend a few dollars more and go somewhere else!!! I hope they will be better when they open back up after refurbshing, but I doubt it because apparently management does not care about the customers that they currently have!!!

We got a $29 deal on bookit.com. Had we paid anymore, I would have asked for a refund. Our balcony door was broke so it didn't shut. The carpet was pulling up in the middle of the floor. There were hair balls floating in the hot tub. Also, the loudest thing in the building was the elevator. Every time it came up to our floor, it made a loud growling noise through the whole building. A couple we met there said their room had roaches in the refrigerator. I would not recommend this place to a friend.
