As has become our goal when possible, we try to stay in the smaller, local owner hotels instead of the larger resorts and chains. Luckily, in Myrtle Beach, there are still a lot of the smaller, non-chain hotels. Unluckily, this time we chose the Polynesian. It is located on the beach, which is a huge factor in it's favor, and the staff was friendly and helpful when possible. However, this hotel is not just old, it shows its age. I expected some wear and tear, but not to the extent we found. The mattresses were probably new when Reagan was in office, and were an odd combination of lumpy and squishy, very uncomfortable. The carpet may as well have not been there, it was so old and threadbare. The hallways were smelly and just, well, ugly. While the room was fairly clean, there is just no disguising the fact that this hotel was not just old and tired, it was exhausted. All beach hotels seem to hold a musty smell, and this one was no exception. The air conditioner labored and wheezed the entire visit. The kitchenette was fairly well done, despite the fake wood linoleum floor there and in the bathroom. The bathroom showed its age also, but rather well. It was large, clean and comfortable. The location makes up for some of the shortcomings, as does the price. Unfortunately, the adage holds true that you get what you pay for. The phone in the room did not work, neither did the WiFi. This hotel will not be on our list to revisit unless some renovations are done, as well as some basic neglected maintenance.
