“Great Vacation!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This was my first time at this resort and was pleasantly surprised. I read the ratings on the hotel and was a little concerned but I can tell you that this is a very nice place to stay. It is true that the parking is very tight but there are a few parking spaces on the other side of the road that i took advantage of a few days. All that I can say is take your time and back up if you need to. It was very nice not having to worry about making breakfast. They served a variety of foods. There is something for everyone. Yes, they did limit you to one serving but it was more than enough for me. The rooms were a little dated but very clean. We had a balcony from our room which was nice to sit on at night. The Staff was great! We wanted to add a day which they did with no problem. Also, the beds were great! This was the first time that I stayed at a place and didn't have a backache!! All in all I would go back again!

Room Tip: We were on the 15th floor which had a great view. We also had suite which had an ice maker in the fr...

We travelled to Myrtle Beach last year and stayed at Monterey Bay Suites, according to the photos on their website, I was expecting a nice hotel. The hotel is old and the room was less than satisfactory. There was mold in the air conditioner, sand in the murphy bed, the bathtub was dirty and the floors were sticky. We told the front desk that we were not satisfied and they offered us another room. The second room was cleaner however the floor were still sticky but they tried their best to offer us a clean room. The other complain I have about the hotel is the number of elevators for the number of guests. We had to wait 10-15 min. to get an elevator, because we were on the 14th floor, it was not easy to walk up or down the steps especially with all the baggage for the beach. I do not think we will come back to this hotel.

Thank you for staying at Monterey Bay Suites. We are saddened to learn you did not enjoy your stay with us in 2011. The room you describe is not the condition we provide for our guests and we appreciated the opportunity to correct the issues.
Summer time is our busiest season, with approximately 800+ guests in the hotel the elevators, pools and parking garage do become very crowded. Our staff works very hard to stay on top of the daily requirements for these areas.
We hope you will re-consider us for your next stay in Myrtle Beach.

We have been going to the Monterey Bay for 3 years and love each it each time we go. Highly recommend checking them out....you can't beat a hotel that offers a fabulous FREE breakfast!!!! Not to mention super friendly staff! Enough pools and hot tubs to go around! Plus a 4th elevator makes it nicer to go about the hotel. We will definitely go back next year!

Room Tip: You can't beat the ocean front, to wake up on the beach is the best!

This was our first trip to Myrtle Beach and I relied soley on trip advisor reviews. It was great! We traveled with our 2 youngest boys (15&17). They loved it! The rooms were clean, the full kitchen was great. We had 2 balconys on the 11th floor. The pools were very clean and the rooftop pool and hot tub were so much fun in the late evening. The indoor/outdoor pool and back lawn was beautiful. Ping pong and cornhole was fun for the 4 of us to do. Beach was just perfect. Since this hotel is at the end of a row of highrises the beach was not as crouded as a couple hotels to the north. Pefect location. Everything we did was only a 10-15 minute drive away in either direction. Very easy to get around. Some gift stores, miniture golf and food was within walking distance. Breakfast was very good. Staff was excellent. Ray and Teenie made our mornings extra special.Elevators were always busy, but we never had to wait a long time. Parking garage is fine if you know how to drive. Take it slow around the corners. Really, hasn't anyone ever been in a dowtown city parking garage? Wonderful stay, great memories. Highly recommend this hotel.

We just returned from our trip to Myrtle Beach and I must say were very pleased with our stay. I read all reviews before booking this motel and I must admit was a little skeptical and didn't quite know what to expect. But once we were settled into our room, we were very pleased with our decision. I am convinced that the people on here leaving horrible reviews are the people that must always find something wrong with whatever they do! Yes, the parking garage is very tight but with a little patience and maneuvering you can get through it just fine. I drive a Ford Expedition and my husband was able to park at the top level of the parking garage (level 8) without putting a scratch on it. Our first morning that we went to get in the vehicle there was a Chevy Suburban parked next to us without any damage also. So that is proof that as long as you have patience, you can get through the garage just fine. A issue that we did have was our vanity light was flickering and would not come on but we just let it go for 2 days but decided to tell the front desk about it on our 3rd day there. We went out that morning and it was fixed when we got back. Other than that the worst part was that the battery door was off the remote!!! Great motel and wonderful staff, would definently recommend it to anyone. Great location as well....the beach was not crowded at all, perfect for a family with kids! Another issue I feel I must touch on, that a lot of people complained about is the elevators. We had NO issues with the elevators at all, actually our longest wait in 6 days for an elevator was 2 minutes!!

Room Tip: Higher rooms have the best view 10th floor was great for the kids because the roof top pool is on 1...

This was the 2nd year in a row we have stayed at Monterey Bay. Why did we come back? Nice rooms with full kitchens, clean rooms and excellent daily service, free full breakfast, kids love the murphy bed! Yes, the parking garage is a pain and you will scrape your car when you go up the first level (it gets better after that), but the hotel is located in a nice area of MB where it is quiet and good for families with young children. So, after you get parked just relax - you will enjoy your stay!

Very clean hotel, in the middle of everything. Very affordable ocean front suites with full kitchens. Free hot breakfast every morning, which was a little different every day. Great pools with lazy river. Picnic area on beautiful grass. Magician show... Great staff!
