Reviewed July 10, 2014

We spent a week here for the very first time at Marina Inn and Myrtle Beach. We were very happy with the hotel. The location is great for older couples who do not want to be in lively action of the Boardwalk area. It is more quiet, relaxed, and mature. The hotel is very nice and seems to be well maintained. I would definitely come here again if back to the Myrtle Beach area. The staff were all very friendly and professional. Thanks for a great first South Carolina experience!!

My husband & I enjoyed this resort so much that we extended our vacation one more day. I Love the cleanliness of this property, the king sized bed room with balcony, walk-in shower, activities throughout the day for kids, valet parking, shuttle to the beach with a secluded area, in a convenient location central to shopping & restaurants, etc. If you enjoy working out while on vacation this is a FYI...The cardio equipment was inundated, no weights, lack mats for stretching and/or ab work, & the sauna was out of order during my four night stay. Fortunately there is a YMCA down the street but the property is so scenic for a run or brisk walk. Overall I gave it five stars for a relaxing, comfortable, & fun-filled stay. I would highly recommend you to stay here on your next vacation to Myrtle Beach.

We rented a two bedroom, two bathroom, living room, work kitchen and dining area suite (condo) from the hotel and it was great. It was clean, spacious, comfortable and provided us some privacy from our two sons at times. It was like staying in a condo but having the amenities of a hotel. Reflections was good for quick lunches and the free valet parking and wi-fi was appreciated. It is located in a nice part of town that was accessible to everything but not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. Pool area was comfortable and attractive and shuttles to beach were convenient. Nice clientele and staff. A winner!

The hotel looks glamorous from outside and is in a pretty central location. The good things are the beach shuttle was great, the location is good for running, golf, and some water activities, large bathrooms, and many of the staff were very nice. The cons are the exercise room is weak for a hotel of this size, not enough staff to keep areas like pool deck clean of trash, and some amenities are ridiculous at best. They offer cookies/juice at 3pm for hotel guests yet they only provide about 35-40 cookies for a hotel of 1,000 guests. The kids (and adults) line up 20 minutes in advance to try to get a single cookie. With the large number of rooms they provide, you would think they could do a better job of keeping the pool area clean of trash/food, and provide an exercise room with quality equipment/towels/water. Good luck.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and letting us know of your experience. Thank you for your comments regarding our shuttle service to our private beach access, the location of the resort, and the many activities that are available to our guests. We appreciate the constructive feedback regarding our fitness facilities here and some of the other areas of concerns you pointed out. The fitness center is an area that we have identified as one that could be improved on and your comments do not fall on deaf ears. This is a project that we have been working on. In regards to your other concerns, I'd like to apologize that the demand for afternoon cookies exceeded the supply during your stay and the appearance of our pool deck. These concerns are being addressed immediately. It is thanks to our guests and their honest feedback that we are able to react to any shortcomings and use them as opportunity for continued growth. Please know that we take input from our guests seriously and I promise this is being fixed…Thank you again for sharing your experience with us. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Overall loved this resort. I come to vacation at myrtle beach every year for last 12 years and this resort is the best overall. Pool is not kid friendly but the oversized rooms loaded with everything you will need while at the beach. Staff very friendly and polite. Loved the valet service and quick response. My 2 bedroom suite was 1200 sq ft and very comfortable. Felt like I was in a home and not a crammed hotel at the beach. This is my second time at the resort and I must say the first 2 bedroom suite was not as clean and updated as my last stay. My first stay a year ago we had no flat screen tvs. This time we did. My concern is that certain parts of the resorts rooms are newer and in better condition. I will ask to stay in this last room again if I can reserve the same room. I wish the room décor and cleanliness would be more consistience and I would feel comfortable recommending it to my other friends. I don't want to tell them about it and they get an old outdated room. I would take this resort over any hotel on the beach. We will be going next year if I can get my same room. I really want to try the four bedroom two story suite next year

Reggie M, we are glad to have had you stay at our resort for your last two vacations here in Myrtle Beach! Here at the Marina Inn, we try to keep all our rooms modern and in pristine condition for our guests, as that is what they deserve. Our spacious Mediterranean-Style 2 Bedroom Villas provide a wonderful atmosphere for any vacationer! We had made some updates and installed new TV’s since your last stay and do our best to keep consistency with all of our rooms. We strive to accommodate our guests in a room that they would enjoy and it is great to know that we could do that for you. Perhaps on your future stay you will be able to book the 4-Bedroom Penthouse which provides stunning views on both floors of its large living quarters! We are happy that you selected to stay with us again and we are excited to have you stay in the future here at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes!
