“Fantastic to feel the quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

The class and feeling is like the best hotels I have stayed in .... in Maui and in Thailand. From Beach Resorts in Maui to the Oriental Hotel in Bangkok.... from the door man to the bathroom... This is one of my favorite hotels to stay in. We were treated very good. The service and staff were wonderful. Bruce at the front door, Emmy at the desk, Bill at the door also were all friendly, personable... The view was also beautiful.... We would love to stay here again.

Traveling to Myrtle Beach to play in a tennis tournament at Grand Dunes I saw this highly rated hotel close by and booked. Upon arrival I quickly understood why this hotel had so many great reviews. My room was spacious, very well appointed with a great view of the Intercoastal Waterway and the Grand Lawn. The bathrooms were very large with tub and seperate shower, plenty of countertop space and even had artwork hanging. As a matter of fact quality artwork was hung throughout the hotel as well as in the rooms. Although it was November and weather was cool the outdoor pool and spa area is beautiful and would be a great place to spend time when temperatures are higher. Overall one of my favorite hotels and having booked at an online discount site the price was unbelievable.

Room Tip: The best views are on the Intercoastal Waterway side

They can't seem to figure out how to keep coffee out in the morning...they want you to wake up at 7:00 am on your vacation to try and get a cup before they take it away...but then the next day they keep it out until 11:00 am then the next day they take it away at 9:00 by the time you leave for the week you may have got lucky and were able to get 2 cups your entire stay! For the price you pay the coffee should be out all day!!! They should not make you go on a wild goose hunt everyday for a cup of coffee ( great way to start your day)!!!

The resort itself is large and the outside pools are gorgeous. Beautiful views of the boats, decent indoor pool area, and several onsite restaurants. Beds were soft, bathrooms updated. We booked our room on an online discount website for a great deal. Unfortunately, when we arrived, the front desk was rather rude to us. She kept saying "you booked online, not with us" and treated us subpar. It was stated more than once on our stay that we were not there reservation. This is rude to treat your customers different than the "full paying" customers. If you do not wish to have discounted rooms, don't sell them off online! I prefer to stay at 4 star or above on vacation, and being this is only 1 of 2 available in Myrtle beach, I choose it. However, I would not stay here again simply based on the staff and arrogant behavior. You might be trying to only attract a high end clientele but at the end of the day, when you walk out that door, it's still JUST Myrtle Beach. Get over yourselves.

HospitalityPro73, Guest Relations Manager at Marina Inn at Grande Dunes, responded to this review, November 28, 2012
Thanks moma1031 for the review, we are pleased you enjoyed the amenities offered while staying with us. Yes, we overlook the Grande Dunes marina so views of the yachts is always beautiful scene, especially during the fall as we experience lingering sunsets and people migrate south to avoid the cold northern weather. We were also happy to read you enjoyed both our outdoor and indoor pools along with our large, comfy beds. We do feel our amenities are a great asset to our resort.

We are; however, disappointed to read you felt our service levels at the Front Desk fell below your expectations. I can assure you rudeness is unacceptable and we will be looking into this situation to completely understand what occurred. We did want to assure you that all of our guests are important to us, irrespective of how they elect to make their reservations. We consider all of our 3rd party reservation sources a vital lifeline to our resort and we do not differentiate between guest types. This is clearly indicated by guest reviews posted to Expedia.com and Orbtiz.com, both of which indicate a 94% and 90% customer approval ratings.

Again, thanks for taking the time to post your review; we truly appreciate your feedback.

The Marina Inn is a beautfil hotel overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway. The rooms are quite spacious, including a large bathroom and very comfortable bed. A great experience. There is an indoor and outdoor pool, and an adequate fitnes room. There was a restaurant within the hotel (we did not have a chance to try) as well as a Ruth's Chris restaurant immediately next to the hotel.

Room Tip: Our room had a direct waterway view, with a golf course beyond the waterway. A wonderful view. We di...

My family stayed at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes for our Thanksgiving Holiday get-away. The accommodations were spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The staff was courteous, friendly, and attentive to our requests and questions. The room service was great! The Thanksgiving menu was devine and the service was exceptional! We were minutes away from the beach and also close to nice restaurants, shopping, and other family-related activities. I would highly recommend a visit to the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. Our stay was truly GRANDE! The Brooks Family

We have stayed at the hotel several times and we love the hotel, service and staff. We have stayed in a one, two and three bedroom. All were very comfortable and very clean. This time we reserved a 3 BR and they gave us a 2BR adjoined to a 1BR. The living area was not big enough so we called to get it changed to a 3BR and they did. They had us moved within 10 minutes. We look forward to returning!
