“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was our fourth time staying at Long Bay Resort. We love the location. It's close to lots of restaurants and attractions and our young adult children love the area.
I also like that we can get a three bedroom condo here without having to rent it for a whole week. It's hard for us to find a week when everyone can get off so we usually only go for five or six days and here we can rent by day not just weekly.
It had been four years since we had stayed here and I did notice that the furniture in the condo is the same furniture that has been there since we started staying there seven years ago and the living room furniture is starting to show its age. We also were disappointed that there wasn't a blender or skillet in the kitchen for us to use.
However, we did notice that they have done some other updates in the kitchen and overall, we still like this place and enjoy staying here. It is definitely a good place for families and a beautiful place to stay on the beach.

We stayed at Long Bay Resort,
We had a Ocean View room. Our room consists of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, couch turned into a Futon Bed, TV in every room,

There were no wild parties. No loud music. People did party but we didn't hear anyone.
Nothing got out of hand.
The staff (Bonnie) was extremely helpful in planning our stay with activities for an all female party. No young children in our party but their were many families that had children, In my observations the kids had games, pool, and the beach to keep them happy.

The resort had a small store in the main area of check-in. Nicely stocked with practical supplies for your stay.

My daughters and I went to the resort but next time I would take my husband.

Room Tip: Ask for an Ocean View Room. We were on the 11th floor, not a lot of children

We stayed here only for a night and have no complaints. It was clean enough and the room was comfortable. I loved the kids pool area and lazy river. The beach is steps away so you can enjoy that as well. We didn't try any of the restaurants because it's in middle of everything so you have variety of choices.
To summarize, it was a nice stay.

We stay at the Long Bay Resort every year and we just completed another amazing stay! We arrived Saturday afternoon, so it did take us a while to check in- about a 25 minute wait, but well worth it. This time, instead of two separate rooms, we got a two room apartment (but it really should be considered a suite) that came with a small kitchen and one queen size bed and two full size beds. The kitchen came with all the fixings- pots and pans, silverware, and dishes. The rooms were in decent condition and room service did an amazing job every day.

This year, the hotel has added a pool side bar that serves really good daiquiris, and give you a cupon book when you check in. Also, check by the pool entrance- they also have cupon stands there. We saved a bunch with them. By the end of our stay (Labor Day Weekend), the hotel had no vacancies and the staff seemed to be working diligently to handle the masses. We did not have any complaints at all. However, the parking lot did get full and we were forced to park across the street at their adjacent lot on our last night (this apparently is a normal thing when they are busy). We were a bit skeptical since we were used to parking directly across from our hotel room all week long (they have rooms directly across from the parking lot - and you never hear a thing!).

Overall, the beds were comfy, and the pools were amazing. Well worth the money to stay steps away from the beach.

Room Tip: They do have rooms directly across from the parking lot, so you don't have to carry stuff back a...

Now I remember why we don't stay here....I will start with the positive about Long Bay! Great area/location in Myrtle. Close to a lot of our favorite places. Lots of pools, decent beach access and area. Starbucks on property. Now for the not so nice parts..... Checked in on Saturday at 3pm, took over 30 mins to check-in. Employee at front desk was less then enthuzied to help-very snotty. Requested high floor room for our nice oceanfront requested room....Was given first floor view..not happy. Manager tried to make it better by moving us on our 2nd night stay to the 6th floor. We accepted as we like a high floor and requested it in our reservation. So first night stay, floor one, bad location, behind dunes, couldn't really see the oceanm but could see tons of people sunning themselves right in front of our "view". Needless to say, had to keep the curtains mostly closed otherwise people are staring right at you. Not a great start. Lock on the door didn't work good at all. Had to swipe the key in and out of the lock about 6-7 times just for it to read the card to open. Handle had to be played with in order to get the door to even close. As I am in the bathroom freshing up, in walks a palmetto bug....Not uncommon but not welcome either. Then again while I was trying to get to sleep, I could see the palmetto bugs walking across the dresser. Again, not uncommon, just very unwelcomed. Due to the fact that we were moving to another room, I did not unpack, which really was a drag. We ended up putting all of our stuff into the car the next morning-even though the front desk offered to move our stuff. New room was ready around 11:30, which was nice with a 4 year old. Much better view and room, but overall, this trip reminded us while we haven't stayed here in a long time.

Please let us apologize for the difficulties and inconvenience you experienced with the first room it was given to you and your family. You deserve smooth, uncomplicated service when you staying with us, and the wait that you were put through while checking in is not what we want our guests to expect. I am also glad to hear that we made the right decision to improve your stay by allowing us to move you to another room that meet your expectations. Should you have any further questions or comments regarding this matter, please feel free to contact me.

don't always write reviews, but decided since I read them so much before I travel, it would only be considerate......stayed aug11-15......groupon getaway....family of 5 and two of our boys are 19 and 21 and a 16 year old....they hadn't been to the ocean and suggested myrtle beach, saw the groupon getaway right after that so gave it a shot.....read reviews about waiting in line to check in and lo and behold when we got there there was a long line and it moved very slowly but when we got up there we checked right in.....must be different promotions, anyway, I was a little nervous after one of the negative things coming to pass already but when we got to our room on the 15th floor right outside the elevator overlooking the ocean and so nice and spacious, I was very impressed!! From that height you get spectacular views......we had a 3 bedroom condo with washer and dryer and the works......but that balcony and view from the living room and master bedroom was the hit!! Our maid came in and even loaded the dishwasher for us a few times....we had a few issues with power in one of the rooms but it was finally resolved. We got an awesome price for all of this so we thank groupon as well!! We swam in the ocean everyday which was quite an adventure for a 50 year old lady!! Great time!!
