I have stayed in Hamptons before and don't expect much. They are not bad, just not great. Thios Hampton was GREAT! It is right on the beach and the beach is nice and wide. The lobby is great. For all you moms who want to escape the craziness of the room for a bit, find a great couch to curl up and read a great book, this is your hotel! Several nice little spots to hang out.
The rooms were spacious and clean. We had a corner room and the layout was very nice.Try to get a corner such as 242, 342. You weren't right on top of each other. If you get a low floor you still have a great view and you can park on the same floor as your room and walk right in. Every staff person we dealt with were just over the top nice. I saw a couple of comments about the area and it is true, there isn't much in walking distance HOWEVER I am not sure I would let my kids walk any where in Myrtle Beach by themselves. We were there for a baseball tourney but it was also Spring Break. Seemed like a pretty rowdy and questionable crowd at times. If we were staying right by the boardwalk I would not let them go there alone. So, yes, everything is a drive from this hotel but parking was easy everywhere we went. The breakfast was nice and again the lobby and eating area was very spacious and we enjoyed nice sit down, unhurried breakfasts. Also they had coffee and tea available all day. Nice touch.
The pool area was nice. When we were there it was COLD but I still saw a fair amount of kids swimming.
This hotel had a very nice pool side Easter service which I thought was very nice.
I can't say I love Myrtle Beach but if we were to return this is where we would stay.

Room Tip: Corner room, low floor

Staff helpful and friendly.

Thank you for staying at our Hampton Inn & Suites Oceanfront Resort. Hampton's are "focused service" hotels, not full service hotels. Hilton Worldwide, our parent company, does not all us to offer room service, coffee shops, and the other things that you requested because that is what their full service Hilton, Embassy Suites, and Doubletree brands offer. Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites, and Home 2 Suites guarantee clean rooms, personalized service, free parking, free breakfast, and free internet at affordable prices. You pay for all of these things in the full service hotels. They are complimentary at Hampton. I suggest that you stay at the Myrtle Beach Hilton next time if you want those services. If you want clean rooms, service with a smile, and 450 feet of uncrowded oceanfront, then our Hampton Inn & Suites Oceanfront Resort is the place for you. By the way, we will be opening a more upscale Homewood Suites next door in June 2014. Hilton will not allow room service, but we will have everything else that you requested.

This is a great hotel located on the beach. The ocean view is awesome. The room was very quiet and clean, the breakfast was typical Hampton Inn style. The location of the hotel seems to be a little unsafe, not really sure if there are problems in the adjacent hotels. The pools were very nice and the temperature was kept very warm.

I would visit this hotel again when in Myrtle Beach.

Thank you for staying at our Hampton Inn & Suites Oceanfront Resort and for you kind comments about our hotel. We try hard to offer the best accommodations and service to our guests. Our team members are trained to be "servant leaders." I also wanted to respond to your comment about the safety of the neighborhood. Our neighborhood is one of the safest in Myrtle Beach. By June 2014, the unsightly empty lot next door and across the street will contain a brand new Homewood Suites Oceanfront Resort and Conference Center. The area looks a little shabby now, but I urge you to come back next year and see the transformation. Some people describe a Homewood Suites as a "Hampton Inn on steriods", a smaller more upscale hotel with larger rooms and even more amenities. The vistas in our neighborhood will look and feel a whole lot safer when this construction is completed June 2014. Thanks gain for your feedback. We listen!

Hampton Inn is known for clean and refreshing rooms. This hotel hit the mark! Parking is on same floor of room. Note: the beach is not far from the hotel at all, but the internet photos seems to make it appear farther away. Also for those with a full kitchen, there's a "Food Lion" grocery store about 6 mins away, by car. Very nice stay & the staff was great!!

Like many other reviewers, I can say this hotel is absolutely wonderful and many notches above your typical Hampton Inn. I noticed however, not many reviewers commented on the swimming pools during off season and the safety of the neighborhood which is important if you have little ones. We went in mid-March, during the Canadian (Ontario) Mark Break.

First the swimming pools........
There are 5 outdoor pools (consisting of 2 small lazy rivers, 2 pools, and 1 fair size kiddie wading pool) which are unheated and too cold to swim in mid-March. They were basically unused. There are 4 indoor pools (2 pools and 2 hot tubs) that are nicely heated for use in mid-March. The indoor pools are heated to 88F which is nice and warm especially for little kids (compared to regular indoor pools in community centers which are typically heated to 84-85F which is slightly on the cool side). For the most part, the pools are 3' deep with the deepest part at 4' which makes them ideal for little kids. One of the indoor pools (and one of the outdoor pools) also has a motorized crane seat for handicap use. In the summer season, the glass walls that surrounds the indoor pools open up creating a nice airy feeling. The only bad thing is that there are no change rooms in the pool area so you walk up wet to your room to get change. Oddly enough, the indoor pools are not busy during the mid-March off-season. My kids love to swim and we often went in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings and the indoor pools were never crowded. It was most busy in the evenings, but even then there was hardly any people.

Now for the safety............
The south end of Myrtle Beach where this hotel is located is definitely not as nice as the north end of Myrtle Beach in that there are many more low end hotels in the area. Despite this, it does not seem like a dangerous place. However, the road outside the hotel (South Ocean Blvd) seems devoid of pedestrians as Myrtle Beach is car city and not a walking city. In fact, this hotel is not situated in a convenient place if you don't have a car. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance, but most of it is a large block north (perhaps a 10 minute walk) and unfortunately that path (a side road) is quite desolate other than the occasional car that drives by. I don't think I would feel safe walking that path at night as it is so quiet.

Room Tip: The north tower is newer than the south tower and hence should have newer rooms. However said, the...

The location of this property was excellent. The staff was courteous and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and the view from the rooms were just wonderful. Will definitely stay here again. This property is truly representative of the Hampton Inn brand.

Room Tip: For the extra money go for the ocean front room. Stunning views.

This stay was a gift from our Daughters, they know how much we like Hampton Inn & Suites.
The room was great, clean, bright, nicely decorated with beach feeling.
The balcony was so comfy with rocking chairs...loved them!
From start to finish it was awesome.
