Kingston Plantation Condos by Hilton
Ranked #32 of 209 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed August 20, 2009

Second stay at this condo complex attached to a Hilton hotel and an Embassy Suites hotel. Nice condo units, very reasonable, short walk to pools and the beach. For young kids? A small waterpark that they absolutely rave about. On this second trip? Prices at the pool bar and food vending have gone up tremendously, after taxes $12 for a basic frozen drink and $9 for chicken fingers. While they list wonderful activities in their kid's activities guide, at least 1/3 of the things on their online schedule were NOT EVEN SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE THE WEEK WE WERE THERE...and most of the events listed on site each day were cancelled without any promotion or announcements. Still a great deal and a nice setup.

We returned to the Kingston Plantation. This time we were in the Embassy Suites Condos. It was worth staying onsite because of the water park and the sand pool.

However the condos, are showing their age. We were in one of the newest ones Brighton. The carpet was stained. The furnishings were faded by the sun. There was a stale odor. The site says that condos are owned individually and they vary.

Next time, we will return to the hotel so we know what quality we will get.

For Myrtle Beach I guess you can say it is has a higher class but then again you are not saying much.

We've stayed at the resort the past 3 years, first in the hotel which I dont recommend then in villas which were nice and this year in the Arrowhead condos. The Villa was the best rooms are nice size for a family of 5 and seemed a lot cleaner.

The hotel elevators suck. there is no better way of saying that. I was told 3 years ago they were all to be replaced by high speed elevators but nothing was done.

Bedding needs a major overhaul, mattresses are terribly hard and the pillows give no support - if you can bring your own pillows. No problem with the air conditioner. furniture was dated and room had a musty smell.

Pool areas are small for the resort size and get crowded fast so if you want to be by the pool, grab chairs while people are eating breakfast. One thing is that they dont clean the pool area until the morning so it is littered with cups and beer cans until they get around to it. If you have little kids they do have a small waterpark but dont walk by it before it opens or you'll be tripping by the kids and parents who sit in the walkway waiting for it to open. If you are in the villas or condo and drive up to the beach, get a parking spot early. there are not too many of them.

The pool bar and resturant is also overcrowded and pricey.

Breakfast is good but again get there early or you'll wait at least 20 minutes in line. *** the elevators leave you right in front of the breakfast line so it crowds up there big time. if the pool area was cleaner you can eat outside but like i said it is usually a mess in the morning. If you are staying in the villas or condos, push for breakfast coupons when you check in especially if you are a Hilton Honors member of gold or higher.

Health club is good and was clean.

As far as the location, nice and private being set back and gated, beach is great but that is anywhere you go in Myrtle.

Overall it's ok but that is dont get over excitited about it.

We have been taking our kids every year to Kingston for going on our 7th year now. We ALWAYS stay in the Villas- and have stayed in everything from a 2 bedroom the the deluxe Windemere's. We always travel with friends- and at one time had 21 people in our group and three villas. The kids outnumbered the adults that year! This place has everything. The kids are always excited about the trip and we always have a blast. Kingston is conveniently located to everything Myrtle has to offer. The staff is always friendly, the pools are fun, the waterpark onsite is perfect for the younger kids. They offer lots of activities, music daily at the pool, hair braiding etc. The SPLASH pool bar is pricey for drinks and food- but we take a cooler from our villa with us most days. There are a few on site restaurants at the hotels- which are okay- but we eat in our villa most days and head out to dinner once or twice during our stay. Checking in and out is pretty quick, the gym is convenient, they do charge for tennis. Overall you cant miss with this place. The lakes and paths along Kingston are great for walking- the kids fish in the lake and hunt frogs at night (of course we dont harm any). Great FUN! Youll love it.

Rented a condo from Tom Devoe on VRBO and loved it! Originally had rented another, only to find the first folks had double booked their unit-leaving us in a bind AFTER they deposited my full payment check, so was sure nothing decent could be found with only 3-4 weeks to go, but was pleasantly surprised to find "Sand Castle in the Sky" on VRBO, and even saved myself over $400 for the week. This unit is newly redecorated, spacious, beautifully luxurious, with balconies galore and views of the beach, lake and pool. 2 Bedrooms with new beds and bedding, 2 baths, a fully stocked kitchen and a huge flat screen TV in the living room made my family so happy-I thought my teen would never leave. If renting thru Kingston or Hilton, you get whatever unit they give you for more money-rent from the owners and see your unit before you go-the Devoe's were wonderful and everything was top notch and clean, very clean. Very competitve rates and no key hassles with a keypad locking system , plus no hidden charges make this the place to go in MyrtleBbeach!

Dear Pojismom...thank you for the wonderful comments concerning your vacation here at Kingston Plantation...it sounds like you had a great time! We did note that you had rented thru an independant homeowner and wanted to make sure that you were notified for future visits to KP, that some of the amenities on the resort such as the Splash Water Park and Health club are exclusive to guests only renting thru Kingston Plantation. We wanted to make sure that this was communicated to you thru the owner. If you have any questions or need any further information concerning Kingston Plantation please feel free to contact our reservations department.

Do not even consider this hotel.
There are too many great hotels in Myrtle Beach where your room key works and your wallet is not stollen from your room.

My husband and I and our two older daughters visited K.P. in May for a long weekend. We stayed at a two bedroom lakeside villa in West(?) Hyde Park and could NOT have been happier! We had a 3 minute walk to the ocean but a beautiful secluded lakeside setting when we wanted to relax. We could also walk to the Hilton pool for a change of pace and restaurants. The villa was great - plenty of room for us four and we were able to accomodate a traveling friend from Virginia for a night with no problem. Felt like our own home.
