I have lived in SC all of my life & you cannot beat the windsurfer. Very accomodating management & the price is insanely low for ocean front panorama views. It is walking distance to the 2nd ave pier where you can eat dinner and enjoy cocktails or fish. Loved it & plan on going back soon.

GabielT,

Windsurfer Hotel does have great rooms and a great location. Located right on the southern anchor of the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk we offer One and Two bedroom units all on the oceanfront. We are only a few minutes away from all the action at the Bowery, the ZipLine, Peach's Corner, all the shopping on the Strip, and the Family Kingdom. We have clean rooms for a great price. Please call us today!

Thanks,

Windsurfer Hotel

The location was great however the hotel needs updating, the refrigerator looked like it was in a hail storm and the tub looked so bad I was scared to get in it. The hotel looks nice on the outside however looks are deceiving. I guess the old saying is true, you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Stay at another hotel

Sassypurpledue,

Thanks for your review and comments. You are right, we have a great location right on the beach and on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. We will be sure to correct all of the problems that you encountered and we hope to see you again at the Windsurfer.

Thanks,

We had a suite on the 5th floor. The view from our balcony was breathtaking ! This hotel does have some well used appliances but the landscaping is the best on the boardwalk. The beach is patrolled all night and I felt safe .All the hotel guest were friendly and all our request from the desk and housekeeping were promptly answered. I never heard our neighbors and the beds were very comfortable. We got a great deal because the prices drop in October. The weather was perfect. It was in the high 70's during the day and 50's at night. If you suffer from the heat and hate crowds then go to Myrtle Beach in the fall.

Ginitrex2013 ,

You are right, the FALL is a great time of the year to come to Myrtle Beach and to Windsurfer Hotel. Windsurfer provides its guest with service you cant find at most places in Myrtle Beach. We have clean rooms, great views, and know you by name. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you many times in the years to come!

Til next time,

Windsurfer Hotel

We booked the hotel from the internet. At a very cheap price. We added the jacuzzi for 40$ more, big mistake. It is so old and gross we didn't even want to sit in it.
The mattresses are also very old and I sleep better at home.
There is no spatula, drainer or filters for the coffee machine. Nothing to wash the dishes either.
They do supply a tiny soapdish sample, which is good.

The bedside desk was falling apart, the AC as well. (Though it worked well enough)
Our room was located directly in front of the elevator and we could hear everything going on in the hallway.
Good point is a 2 minutes walk to get to the beach from the room!
For the last 3 nights, the room upstairs from ours had a noisy person who kept hitting the floor for no reason at all times of the evening and night. Even if this is not the hotel's fault it has played on our overall comfort.

Overall OK, but not the best hotel. The pool was clean, so was the spa. The personnel was very nice and friendly, but you really do get what you pay for.

Room Tip: pick the last floor.

KUSHANECOOL,

Thanks for your review and we apologize that everything was not satisfactory. Windsurfer like you said has a friendly staff and we have a clean property. We offer great rates for a great, clean room right on the Boardwalk. As you pointed out the pools, spa and hotel is right next to the 2nd Ave. Pier. We hope to see you again!

Thanks,
Windsurfer

This was our first stay at the Windsurfer. We used to stay at the Tropic House that was owned by Terry and Joy Collins. The Tropic House along with the Pier View were torn down to make room for more parking and the new Boardwalk. We loved the area because of its location next to the 2nd Ave pier. I along with some more retired IBEW members met there at the same time every Year and fished together on the pier. We were all sad when they removed our favorite places. My wife and I stayed in a condo at Garden City our last trip. We really prefer the 2nd Ave. location. We felt like we were back home staying at the Windsurfer this time. We loved the view of the beautiful sun rises each AM.from our ocean front room. We will definitely return and will recommend the Windsurfer to our friends and family.

David C,

We appreciate you returning to 2nd Ave and staying with us. We agree it is one of the best locations on the beach. Windsurfer is right on the Boardwalk, a stones throw away from the 2nd Avenue Pier, and right on the Oceanfront. We appreciate you staying with us and hope you make it back soon!

Thanks,
Windsurfer

Another perfect vacation at the Windsurfer. If you're looking for lazy rivers, flat screen TVs and granite counter tops in the kitchen, this is not the place for you. But if you want clean rooms, two nice pools that are never crowded, beautiful grounds and a great location, this is the place. We return to the Windsurfer twice a year now and each time we see people that return at the same time. It's like visiting family. The best part of the Windsurfer though, is the staff and owner. Where else would you get a hug from the general manager and housekeeper because they are happy to see you again? You'll never find nicer people in Myrtle Beach.

We are perfectly situated right on the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and the 2nd Ave. Pier. Give us a call today we would love to have you!!!

My second trip to Windsurfer-1st was a girls trip in '12, this one with the Hubby :-) We had an awesome time! & Loved our stay! Hated to Leave! The Windsurfer isn't one of the GRAND RESORTS many want & look for and there are some things in need of updating which I did notice some appears to be in progress. Our room was clean and we had great service when needed (a huge plus for us), we really didn't spend a lot of the time in our room - we were either on the beach, shopping, out walking, or at our favorite (2nd Ave.) Pier- just a very short distance away, & Main Myrtle is just a 20min. walk away up The Boardwalk. Most of our time there-less time to unload and load, we did have to park in the overflow across the street, but we had no problem with it at all. If you're looking for BELLS & WHISTLES and more kid friendly things to do etc.-I'd recommend their sister hotel Sandy Beach. If you want more information on what is provided, send them an email or give them a call. THANK YOU WINDSURFER FOR A GREAT TIME & STAY! - WE SIMPLY LOVED OUR VISIT & HOPE TO RETURN IN '14
