“Ocean view for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had been staying at another hotel for a conference and moved here after the conference was over. This was a better value and we had a view of the ocean. We also enjoyed having the free WiFI and a fridge, stove and microwave which we were able to use for heating up a few meals.



We would definetly stay here again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

My wife and I planned a week stay out of the great Northeast before the winter set in. We figured that Myrtle Beach would be a good break and anticipated most of the tourist to have gone home. Well they had and it was a very nice get away. Being a small motel owner I expect and inspect every place we stay when we travel. The Grand was very nice. Not new but very well maintained. We stayed on the beach side and had NO problems coming and going at anytime. The breakfast was similar to what we offer and that was a very pleasant surprise. We had a great stay but unfortunately it was cut short becasue of some ole windbag Hurricane named Sandy that was headed toward our own property, I would deffinately stay here again and I would highly recommend the Grand to anyone traveling.
Great Job Folks keep up the good work!!

Thanks for your recommendation! I'm sure as one in the hospitality industry, you know how much we appreciate it when guests take the time to write a thoughtful review. It really was a pleasure having you and your wife stay with us recently. I'm sorry that Sandy cut your trip short! I hope that all was well at home and at your motel. Please feel free to come back and see us again soon, and make up for that lost time. Thanks again!

This hotel was a great stay. Much cheaper than other comp. hotels. Clean room with microwave and refrig. Good parking on the outside rooms. Also had a great hot breakfast. Hotel is one block off beach and south of the boardwalk but is a great deal and very friendly staff. Will definitely stay there again

Room Tip: outside rooms have better parking

Hotel was very reasonably priced, rooms were very clean, service was pleasant, one block off the beach. Breakfast was simple yet had a nice selection, with waffles, cereal, juices, eggs and sausage. We would stay there again. This hotel is in South Myrtle Beach, meaning it is a little removed from the traffic of downtown, but still a short drive away.

Room Tip: Rooms were very clean, bed was comfortable.

We recenlty stayed at this hotel over the weekend and had a wonderful experience .. the staff including the owner Mr Robertson went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and as comfortable as possible .. we had some trouble with the security safe on our second day .. the whole issue was handled very efficiently .. it helped decrease our anxiety and restore our peace of mind ..The breakast was very good too .. what made it special was the cheerful lady from the staff constantly making sure everyones needs were being met . The view from our hotel room was very beautiful too !! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and will come back here again..

I stayed to see Gaitherfest and gotta say what a deal! The room was extremely clean, although showing it's age. The employees I encountered were very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was like any I've had, not bad at all. I give it an excellent because I know of hotels that are more money and no where near as clean or nice.

The best thing was that the room was right on the beach. A ground floor, beachfront room with a balcony and 2 rocking chairs. Dunes do prevent you from seeing the ocean, though on the bottom floor. WIFI worked ok. Staff was friendly, we saw 2 people once each. The room was clean.
Negatives:
This building is across a main highway from the main building. There very little parking and loading and unloading you car is difficult and inconvenient. Folks from the other building drive over to go to the beach causing even less parking to be available.

The room's lighting is horrible. They seem to be using energy saving lights, we needed to use a flashlight to read in the room! Way too dark in the room.

Not sure what kind of mattresses they were but they collapsed on the sides when you sat on them. Once you were in bed it was comfortable enough, but the mattresses weren't solid at all.

Kitchen was good and worked well,which we used to fix our own breakfast. The free breakfast was across the highway in the other building. We needed to continually move the table and chairs in order to use them and they were so heavy and the ceramic flooring was very noisy. We could even hear the people above us moving their furniture.

I love the beach and was disappointed that the hotel wasn't better.We left a day early and drove to Florida. We most likely would not stay there again.

I'm so sorry to hear that my property was not to your liking; we strive to make each guest's experience exceptional and so we take your feedback very seriously. I'm glad that there were many aspects of your stay that were positive, including the cleanliness of the property and the friendliness of my staff.

I do apologize for the inconvenience you experienced regarding the parking in our oceanfront building. There are a sufficient amount of spaces for guests staying beachfront and we ask all of our guests staying in the main building to refrain from parking in the oceanfront spaces. Also, we are very diligent in ensuring that only our guests use our lots. However, I recognize that the space is limited and apologize for the frustration it caused you during your stay.

All of our mattresses are Kingsdown Pillow Soft or Pillow Top, which means that they are some of the most highly acclaimed on the market. Unfortunately, everybody prefers their beds at different hardnesses. We do our best to accommodate all guests; I wish you would have mentioned these concerns to my staff so that we could take measures to make you more comfortable. The same goes with the lighting: we do use energy efficient lights throughout the property but we would have been happy to replace the bulbs in your room during your stay so that you were more comfortable.

Again, please accept my apologies for those aspects of your stay that were less than excellent. My staff takes guests' feedback very seriously and we hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you.
