“Outstanding resort”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Just returned yesterday from the marina Inn. The staff and the resort could not have been nicer. We played golf at Grande Dunes which a super golf course. we will definitely be back! Not usually big Myrtle Beach fans,but the Marina Inn is in a very nice area away from the typical tourist area

Hospitality goes a long way and Marina Inn definitely has it! I enjoyed my stay here and will definitely return the next time we are in Myrtle Beach. The staff ensures you are taken care of, the rooms are exceptionally clean and the amenities are up to par. I enjoyed the cookies in the afternoon :-)

When we go to Myrtle Beach we usually want a beachfront property. I always wanted to stay here because I have seen it many times and it looked very nice. I was correct in many more ways imaginable. This property was truly a full service hotel that included an awesome marina. All the rooms faced the intra coastal waterway instead of a parking lot. We stayed in a studio suite that included a fireplace and Jacuzzi tub. The total square footage was around 450 which was planned extremely well. I would even stay here during the "beach season" because they have a shuttle and a cabana on the beach. The Waterscapes restaurant was awesome. We ate four meals there including one dinner, one lunch and two breakfasts. The pool and grounds were immaculate and plenty of walking areas.

The only cons I have 1. exterior corridors which make it a little noisier and difficult
during inclement weather
2. the mattresses were soft for my preference.

Room Tip: If you want a Jacuzzi tub be sure to ask because the larger suite has a full kitchen and small sitti...

Great getaway to celebrate anniversary. Place was fantastic in every aspect. Could not ask for a better staff. Everyone was so cordial and went beyond what was necessary to make our four night stay a memorable one. Our first night we ate in the restaurant (Waterscapes) and were treated extra special. Enjoyed breakfast there also. Food and service there was great. Attended Christmas show at Carolina Opry less than a mile from Marina Inn and it was a wonderful experience. Got some beautiful pictures from our balcony on the waterway. Would gladly stay there again if we make it back to Myrtle Beach. Highly recommend this place to stay.

All good to say about our weekend getaway with small kids. From the time we arrived & was greeted by valet to the check in. The room service waiter & cleaning service everyone went the extra mile to accommodate. Would definitely stay again!

The only complaint I have is that I asked for a room with a pull out sofa and after getting there that isn't what I got. I came with two teenage kids a boy and girl and a child who is disabled.The pull out was for my son so my disabled child could have a bed. But that didn't happen like that so she slept with me and my husband slept on the couch.But all in all it was a great stay. Our view of the Marina was breathtaking. Our room was fully equipped with a full kitchen which we used the whole time. The room was had two bedrooms, one with two queen beds and the other with a king bed. We two teenage kids the two bathrooms was a must. We didn't eat at the restaurant that was located inside(Waterscapes) because it was a bit pricey. But we will be returning

The boy and I ended up at the Marina Inn after a bad experience at a nearby name brand resort (whose name I'll withhold). As I sat in the lobby of said hotel close to tears, my boy whipped out his computer and exclaimed I will find us something better! And boy did he. After calling the Marina Inn to book a room for 2 nights, they customer service rep informed us they were having a fall special and the second night was at a discounted price. Score! Over we trotted and checked in. We were blown away. We felt right at home in our Mediterranean Club Suite. It was equipped with a full size kitchen which we were unable to use to its full potential. The bathroom was huge and had a shower and tub as well as two vanities. This girl was happy. Bed was a king and so comfortable. We faced the waterway and were so happy sitting on the lanai to watch the sun set. As it was mid September the resort was mostly quiet and the bar at the pool was closed. We couldn't care less as we were just so happy to relax and spend time with the boy's sister; the great weather was an added bonus. Our two night stay was so quick and we long to return. When we do return again, it will certainly be to the Marina Inn.

Hi Flyergal!! Thank you for taking the time to share your Myrtle Beach Marina Inn vacation! We appreciate the detailed account of your visit. As you experienced, the Mediterranean Club Suite is an excellent choice when traveling since it is equipped with all of the essentials that you need & the view of the golf course and waterway is exceptional at sunset. Fall and winter is the perfect time to take advantage of our special offers. We are looking forward to your return visit.
