We stayed at the Carolina Grande October 22 - 26, enjoying the warm weather and Myrtle Beach accomodations. We had a three bedroom, two bath suite. While the suite and hotel in general was clean and attractively decorated, we did notice several dark stained/worn areas on the nain area's carpeting, mold on the second bathroom's ceiling, as well as worn looking elevator floors and walls. Noise from the unit next door was a problem three nights in a row, between midnight and 130AM, which was annoying to say the least. We could see the ocean from our balcony on the 16th floor, but also had to deal with somewhat long waits for the elevators. I heard one sales rep. explaining they have no freight elevator so that housekeeping, and other support staff have to use the same elevator as guests which causes delays. One morning while riding the elevator down to the lobby, it was stopped by housekeeping on the second floor and I was made to stand and wait in elevator while the lady swept and mopped out the elevator floor around me - strange! The front desk staff offered us discounted tickets to a local attraction but, after 15 minutes of waiting, still couldn't get their computer to work and provide us with the tickets - we left without them. The staff DID give us beach chairs for the asking, suggestions on good places to eat and grocery shop as well as were very friendly and courteous in the hallways and on the grounds. As the ocean is across the street, a quick five minute walk through a parking lot entry and board walk gets you to the beach. The location was great, right on Ocean Blvd, near stores, restaurants, etc. Would go back next week if I could (and the hurricane is gone). They listed activities for guests each day but honestly, I chose to enjoy the sunshine, ocean and sandy beach instead.
