“Vacation 2012”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is the 9th year my family has stayed at Monterey Bay Suites. We always look forward to seeing whats changed when we come back. The staff is always nice and friendly and we always chat with them. The rooms are comfortable. We tried other hotels in the area and found none comparable to Monterey Bay. The price has always been one of the best in the area for the size of the room that you have. We enjoy seeing some of the same families year after year. Yes the parking deck is tight but after nine years you really get used to it. As long as we continue to travel to Myrtle Beach we will stayat Monterey Bay!!!!

Room Tip: We like the corner rooms they have windows on the sides.

This was our first time staying at Montery Bay Suites. We had room 535, which was an Ocean Front End Suite. Really nice room. Very clean. The mattress had to have been new. Wish we could have brought it home with us. Some of the best sleep I have had in a while. Water Pressure in the shower was awesome. (May not be a big thing to some folks, but hey I have been places where the pressure wasn't hardly enough to rinse the soap off you.) Nice Kitchen. Murphy Bed & Sleeper Sofa option in the front room was nice. Our 14YO used the Murphy Bed and really liked it. The pool area was nice as well as the walkways out to the ocean. I did go down for the breakfast the first morning we were there. Was not overly impressed with that. Not a big deal as we don't eat breakfast that much anyway. I was perfectly content to walk down to the Starbucks 1/4 mile away and grab some coffee there. A morning walk back to the hotel on the beach with some coffee in-hand was an awesome way to start every day. Now for the parking that most everyone talks about. Yes, those first couple of trips are tight and mentally tough. However, after the first day, I had no trouble coming down and very little trouble going up. We don't have a big SUV, but we do have a Touring Mini-Van, so the length of the vehicle is fairly long. Just really was not an issue for us. The fact that you could park on the same floor as your room was an awesome convenience. Only a couple of times did I have to go up to another floor because all the spots were full. Not all places have parking garages like this and you could end up across the street, etc. Believe me, it is a huge advantage to be able to park on the same floor as your room. Actually saw the housekeeping ladies one time, but we could tell they had been there every day. Fresh towels always left for us and the room was cleaned up. Well, probably have rattled on long enough. Bottom line is that we would return to Montery Bay Suites and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: If you get an End Suite and you want full advantage of the windows, on the south side, would need to...

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.
