This was our 1st trip to Myrtle Beach and needed a hotel fairly close to the convention center--this one was recommended, and we are very happy we stayed here. This is start of off season so rates were very reasonable. Rooms/property very clean and well kept. Staff very helpful and friendly. Hotel is on beach, ~ 6 blocks from convention center and 1 mile from downtown tourist area; we found location very good.

Went back for 30th time the first 2 weeks in October, we were disappointed the Tiki Bar closed the day before we arrived. Last year it was open had a great time there. We told several people and they came at that time and were not happy. But booked again the same time next year. if like to out try Bummz near 21st on N. Ocean Blvd try there grouper fingers
or go to Pier 14 ask for the Shark Bites a little spicy {it's a white fish }

The second week of July my wife and I vacationed at Myrtle Beach SC and stayed at the Dayton House. I have been to many cities and stayed in many different hotels/motels of all sizes and classes and I will have to say that my recent stay at Dayton House ranks at the top of my most enjoyable stays anywhere. The rooms were extremely clean but the most important part was the sheets and bedspreads were immaculate and very fresh smelling. While the appliances were not new; they were in working order and they themselves were very clean. Parking was adequate and they had additional parking across the street. Some nights we returned late and had to park a few feet away but it is the beach and you expect that. I was very impressed with the room, the pools, and the amenities but it was the staff themselves that really made a difference. Each and every day we had plenty of clean towels and were greeted with a smile and some short personal conversation on the day, our trip, our stay etc. I can only say that if I have to rearrange my vacation week next year around their availability I will as I plan on staying nowhere else but the Dayton House. Thank you to all who work there and made our trip enjoyable.

Room Tip: The best part of Dayton House is they have multiple buidlings to choose from that are all located on...

Yep second year and we came back for an 8 day vacation. While yes some of the fixtures are older, they are clean and the staff is 100% friendly and helpful. Location is great to all areas of food and entertainment. Now if they could just control the weather and give us sunshine the whole time... :) Sept. is a good month. Not as crowded and temps are great. HEY I got tan what more could you ask for.

We stayed at the Dayton House on September 18-23. While the hotel is older it is clean, quiet, comfortable and has the best ocean front lawn in Myrtle Beach.
We had a side view efficiency and while we had to lean over to see the ocean we were OK with that.
Our room had been remodeled, beds very comfortable and a nice quiet room. Housekeeping went out of their way to clean our room at our convenience. While the kitchen is older we only used the fridge and kitchen sink. I'm on vacation, I don't plan on cooking anyway.
This is the third time we stayed at the Dayton House and it won't be the last.

we have stayed here for 2 years in a row and plan on staying here next year. I have been to Myrtle beach since I was a child and have stayed in ally of places. This by far is the best place for the money. My daughter is 3 and loves the pool. We eat at uncle johns across the street each morning. Its an older hotel but clean. We really enjoyed our stay.
