“Not impressed-stayed in "towers" building”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2010

Pros: on the beach & good customer service. They let us check in really early - which was really nice. Cons- we stayed in the towers section- king studio. Really old and not updated probably since the the 80s. Our room had a VHS player!! No DVD ? Has all of your other basic needs- but there are much nicer places for the money. The ice machine is really scary looking, the elevator smelled like urine, and you can hear every sound outside. That is a biggie when it is bike week. Car alarms going off non stop from the vibrations of the bikes. Our chair on our balcony had 3 legs. If you can stay for 3 days, we would recommend the forest dunes. Same area, less money, and much nicer

We had 4 adults and 2 7-year olds. We felt very cramped. The daily maid service was not so good. They never emptied our trash cans which were very small and needed emptied everyday. The room was nice. Overall was a good experience, would recommend it for a smaller family. Wifi only worked downstairs.

Stayed at the Caravelle Tower in July.The staff was VERY friendly and helpful!Loved the location,the suite we had was clean and well appointed.The only negative aspect was the long delays waiting for an elevator.It could be a very time consuming ordeal to get from your room to the beach or parking areas.

  • Liked — Friendly Staff
  • Disliked — elevators

I recently visited your hotel on July 25-28th on company business. It was our first trip to Myrlte Beach and was a very nice experience. When we checked in the gentleman was very polite. Our bellhop was very very polite and friendly during the travel to find our room for which he opened the door for us and insured all was ok before he left. We took a quick tour of the facilities and upon arrival back to the 14th floor (marvellous view) we found that unfortunately he had put the room key in his money clip which was magnetized and deactivated the key. Back down 14 floors we went. When we went back to the main lobby, the gentleman at the desk after being told of the mishap for which I was blamed did not hesitate to reactivate the key with a smile and a comment of Not a Problem. The cleaning Staff did an excellent job of keeping our room clean for us. For each trip we made to and from the hotel every employee we met along the way went out of their way to be friendly. We did not have much time to go beachside - maybe next trip. The was by far one of the most pleasant stays at a hotel that we have ever stayed at. Your staff is to be commended for the hospitality and cleanliness of the establishment. If we ever make it back to SC again on personal or business, your hotel will be given the first call.

  • Liked — Scenic View from 14th floor
  • Disliked — Elevators with no air

We stayed at the Caravelle during our trip to Myrtle beach. The hotel has gone through a lot of renovations, but it's still an old hotel. The renovations mainly seemed to include paint and redecorating.

The view is very nice.

There were LOTS of families with children staying here. They had planned daily activities for the kids.

The efficiency condo we stayed in had 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, 2 king beds and a pull out couch.

The kitchen is there, but don't plan to spend a lot of time cooking. The kitchen area is quite cramped and there's no counter space.

Wireless internet is available for a fee, but it is difficult reaching a viable IP address. We were unable to connect over half of the time. However, free wireless access is available downstairs in the coffee/martini bar.

This hotel would be best for a couple or a family of 3. We went with 2 teenage girls and were in need of more space... and another bathroom. :)

If you want to stay at Caravelle, you may consider renting through the VRBO website. You can rent from an owner for a much discounted price.

  • Liked — The view and close proximity to the beach
  • Disliked — Old Cramped space for a family of 5.

My friend's daughter left a bag in the room upon checkout.
Have called several times, no manager will call back
or speak on the phone. I guess they keep your belongings
for themselves. Never stay there again!
