This is our second year staying at Bay View. It's in the best location. I would recommend this to any couple or family. The kids will love the pool and play area. I like the Starbucks right downstairs. The staff are all friendly and helpful.

I stayed at this hotel with my Husband for our honeymoon from Sept 9-14 and we really had a great time! The front desk staff was amazing! The most friendly and helpful I've ever experienced! And that goes for the staff at the Starbucks owned by the hotel as well! Thanks to all of you! We got the Ocean Front Condo on the 10th floor. It was beautiful! The view was AMAZING. Just looking out on the ocean was so nice at any time of day or night. We had a full kitchen which we didn't really use. I didn't want to cook on our Honeymoon, we just got the condo for the extra space. The pools looked nice for families, but we stayed out on the beach and swam in the ocean whenever we could. We took advantage of the crazy waves probably caused by Isaac. I recommend buying a body board from one of the shops and going out into the ocean. It was a blast! And we didn't have far to walk back to the hotel since it's right on the beach. We ate at the Starbucks for breakfast every day. The food is great there. The parking at the hotel was superb as well. They have a 3 storey parking building two buildings away. It's literally a 1 minute walk. You need to swipe your room card to get in, so I felt good that my car was secure. And for people with limited mobility, they have elevators for every floor, and a little golf cart type vehicle that the staff will happily drive you back and forth to your car :) I saw a man complain about how far away the parking garage was (you could see it from the hotel entrance) and actually asked if he could leave his car blocking the entrance -_- The staff happily offered to bring him back and forth to the parking garage in the cart. You can pull up to the hotel, and there's a little half circle that about 6 cars can park in, and you can leave your car and check in, drop off your things and then go park. It's not like you have to carry all your bags from the parking garage. You can do the same when you check out too. Its more difficult if you're just one person, but with the two of us, it was a breeze. And everything is so close, you don't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to. My only complaint with this hotel (and it didn't affect our experience at the hotel) was that when we arrived, there were some fruit flies in the main room, probably from the last person leaving food lying around. The flies died after about a day, but they all died around the lamps in the main room, which were never dusted the 5 days we were there. A little gross but I can't fault the hotel for one person's mistake. The garbage wasn't always cleared but we always had at least one of the 3 garbages empty. Also, one time when we were getting ready to go out, housekeeping knocked on the door and immediately opened it. I didn't have the chance to go to the door. But again, one person's mistake. And it didn't bother us too much. There are always things that aren't perfect, and I would not look at any other hotel on my next trip to Myrtle Beach. This hotel is a little gem. Again, thank you so much to the staff I mentioned, and I hope the manager reads my really long review. I am very happy with my stay and you will see me and my husband again the next time we go to Myrtle Beach!

Firstly the good: great location, direct beach access and central to all the local attractions. Great car parking arrangement in a multi-storey facility one block away. Staff at the resort could not have been more helpful. Got to fall asleep each night in a very comfortable bed with the sound of the waves ringing in our ears ( on the 11th floor, even with the door closed).The bad: the unit we had was an ocean view, great balcony, great view of the beach - unfortunately every time the guests next door made anything to eat we got to share the smell in our unit - not a very pleasant experience - they kept setting the fire alarm off. Lastly the average: the decor and quality of bed linen was distinctly average and could do with some freshening up. That said, I would return to the resort as the good outweighs the bad.

Room Tip: Oceanview room is a necessity

My wife Penny and I would like to thank all of the staff at Bay View on the Boardwalk for another wonderful vacation experience last week September 9th - 13th 2012 Everyone was very kind and helpful to us on the staff!!! We had a small situation come up that was not Bay Views fault, there was someone stay in a unit next to ours that was smoking inside, and were not suppose to be, and it came through the adjoining door and was very strong! My wife and I are not and never have been smokers so it was very hard for us to tolerate. I went by the front desk and reported our situation and they took care of it immediately for us! We couldn't have ask for a better response and resolution!!! I do recommend Bay View on the Boardwalk for anyone looking for a great clean Resort to stay in, and it is still reasonably priced! Again Thank you to each and ever staff member for your hospitality!!!

Room Tip: We chose a King Room Oceanfront, and you can leave your balcony door open at night to listen to the...

Our family stayed in room 1808B the end of July thru the beginning of August 2012. All of our dirty laundry was stolen along with all of my childs beach toys. Bayview could have cared less that our items were stolen. It sure does cost a lot of money to replace clothing. Please take it from us stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

We just stayed this past weekend at the Bay View. The hotel was very clean, and the ocean view was beautiful. The pools are very clean, and our not quite one year old grandson loved the Lazy River. We did too! There is a Starbucks on the premises. We had a wonderful breakfast buffet at a little restaurant acroos the street called Mammy's. The elevators were a little crowded at checkout, but that is to be expected. The landscaping was amazing. The hotel is in a great location. Chek out the view from the Pier Street restaurant. You can see the entire Grand Stand. The Sky Wheel is a must, too. Looking forward to going back to Bay View very soon.

Very dated. Bed linens thread bare. Beds lumpy. Tiny pool, lazy river a joke. Elevators slow and dirty. WiFi horrible. Neighborhood not good, parking far away and not easy to come and go. No decent restaurants in the area. Starbucks only decent part of hotel. Front desk staff nice. Concierge pushy. Very uncomfortable place, no shade/umbrellas outside. No outdoor pool. Indoor pools small and cramped. Did not feel safe in area/run down. Room layout good. Kitchen good with washer and dryer. Housekeeping inconsistent from never coming to nice and helpful. Would never stay again. Coming and going difficult between elevators and garage a big pain. Had to leave for meals chewed up a lot of time. Did not feel safe outside. Have read other reviews do not understand we could have stayed in the same place
