Kingston Plantation Condos by Hilton
Ranked #32 of 209 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Pros:
The property itself is very nice and has a good central location between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. Loved the security.
The Windermere villas were very close to the beach and pools/splash pad. Also very close to the Embassy Suites - restaurants/Starbucks.
Loved having our own parking spot out front.
Loved our screened in porch. Sat out there every morning with coffee and every night before bed.
The villa itself was very spacious and comfortable, including the beds.
Internet signal was good.

Cons:
Some of the things in our villa were outdated and needed repairs/replacements.

Overall: AMAZING!

We have a family of six so we loved the condo with 3 rooms so we could all have some space. The amenities are great, health club, breakfast, lots of pool options, etc.. We also loved the balcony with an ocean view. Great convenient location. We'll be back.

The pictures are accurate but the condition of the room along with the service of the house keeping is poor by my standards. Its not as big as the pictures make it look and kitch is quite small with bar stools. To name a few dust along the base boards, neglected couch that lets out into a bed; only had a pattress pad on it when we pulled it out as it should have been made plus there was some something crummy underneath the pad; kitchen utensils were just thrown in a drawer: drawers needed to be cleaned out, tables need to be wiped from previous users, black scuff marks on nearly each wall, light switches were filthy i used a clorox wipe and cleaned the myself cause i knew the house keepinh would not. And this was the second room they allowed us to move to the first was just unacceptable. Needless to say we got an extra night free and complementary breakfast buffet but for a $$$$ priced condo- which is really a hotel room anyone would expect more. And they dnt have free wifi. Its not worth it. The view was top notch on the 11th floor but other than that its an average hotel and nothing like the hilton from long ago. The front desk staff were very attentive and had good customer service but that was it.

We just returned from a stay at the Kingston Plantation resort for the second year in a row renting from a private owner through vrbo.com. This property is absolutely beautiful (see my review from our stay in Laurel Court at Kingston last year for more detail). We stayed in lovely Margate Unit #1007, a 10th floor oceanfront corner 4 bedroom/3 bath unit with a wrap-around balcony offering both ocean and plantation views. The owner was very kind and helpful, even patient as we discussed our payment options and coordinated among our two family groups that were splitting the cost. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed to cook for a group (12 in our group). There were movies, magazines and games for our use, a couple of beach chairs and an umbrella, and WiFi was included. There were only enough bath towels and washcloths for about six people, so we had to purchase some at Walmart to get us through out stay. Otherwise, we had everything else we needed. (Three bedrooms are considered "master" and all have an oceanview, one has balcony access.) (You can view pictures of the condo and read a full description by going to vrbo.com and looking up VRBO Listing #365905.) The Margate building is at the very south of the resort property closest to the Apache Pier, where in the summer nightly entertainment takes place for a $3 per person cover charge. The pool here was a beautiful two-level with a small waterfall going into the lower level surrounded by beautiful landscaping, and 80's music played throughout the day adding that extra vacation touch. There is a nice 12-14 person hot tub in a secluded spot close to the pool that we enjoyed quite a bit during our stay. This pool is exclusively for the use of Margate owners and guests, and the pool monitors keep everything tidy. It is a very secure building, and you must use a code to enter the pool area and a card or code to get into the building from outside. Guests can sign out luggage carts or grocery carts for a 30 minute period to help in lugging items to their condo, and there are ice machines on the property.

We drove a couple miles north to check out Ocean Creek and received a less-than-friendly greeting from the guard, were allowed to drive through the property to look ("Don't get out of your car or approach any buildings. Drive in and drive out!") The concept is similar to Kingston but about 1/3 the size and a lot less impressive in terms of appeal. Kingston is hands down one of the nicest resort properties at which we have stayed. We will definitely return to Kingston.

We have stayed at the Kingston Properties for the last 10 years. Some years two or more visits. We love the security and the overall professional staff in all areas of service to the guest. This is our favorite place to vacation.

Spent 7 days in room 810 of Kingston Plantation condos. Right on beach - beautiful grounds and perfect pools and atmosphere. Waves put you to sleep each night. Many pools to choose from and wonderful atmosphere. Nothing needs changed. Very safe and guarded
