“Return Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

After spending six weeks at the Dayton House in the fall, we returned for another six weeks between January and February. Even though the weather was cooler than the year before, we certainly enjoyed spending time walking on the beach and taking advantage of all the amenities offered by the Dayton House for their "snow bird" visitors. As always, we had a wonderful time renewing friendships with other hotel visitors. The outstanding staff of the Dayton House makes us feel ike we are truly welcome in our home away from home. We love the Dayton House!

This is a great family resort. It is close to the beach. It has a nice kitchenette so u can cook or go out. It's nice to have the option. It is in walking distance to many shops and places to eat. There is a nice indoor and outdoor pool. A great jacuzzi. There are three buildings one right on the beach but all the rooms at least a side view of the ocean. The staff was very accomendating to my desire for a room on a higher floor with the best view. I traveled alone and I still enjoyed the stay. My room for the price could have acommendated at least 4 people. I would come here again for sure.

Only good things to say about our one night stay at the Dayton House. Got a great price on Priceline. Arrived two hours before our check-in time and still able to check in early. The check-in process was very efficient and fast! Luggage carts are available and parking was right outside. We had an 8th floor room with an ocean view. The large room was decorated nicely, it was very fresh, clean and updated. A pleasure to walk into. There was a small kitchen area. Bathrooms were nice, really good towels too. There was a table and 4 chairs if you wanted to dine in your room. The room had a nice sized flat screen. Internet was great. We didn't use the pool, but were very impressed with it's style. (Not sure how much I 'd like it with little kids, seems to be an infinity type of style) but for me, I'd love to sit by it. The interior hot tub was being re-grouted, but the outdoor hot tub was running and looked nice. Temp. was good. The beach area looked nice, but since it was cold and we were also working, we didn't get a chance to enjoy it. Check out was equally efficient!
We would return there in a heartbeat. This is one very well-run hotel.

The Dayton House is a family owned business and not just a cookie cutter resort. I stayed in a suite with a large bedroom, living room, kitchen, and nice balcony overlooking the ocean. The room was clean and the housekeepers were very friendly. The front desk staff was fast, efficient and courteous. I was in town on business and found the room gave me plenty of space to work and relax. I would recommend this resort for both families and solo travelers as it is also walking distance to dining and attractions. I will be back soon!
P.S. Breakfast at Uncle John's Restaurant (the property's restaurant) was tasty, fast, fresh, and VERY reasonably priced.

Room Tip: The Ocean View Suites have their own tower, indoor pool, and sauna. They are the largest rooms but a...

We have always spent February (and our anniversary) at the Dayton House since our retirement, and have always been given the most friendly service anyone can ask for anywhere. The facilities are perfect for long or short stays, but you can't beat the beachfront suites anywhere on the Grand Strand. The entire staff treat everyone like royalty. The housekeepers are the best anywhere. Thank you, Carla! Management plans the most fun activities for their "snowbunnies", we all keep coming back. My husband and I visit several times a year, when the four walls start cosing in. We recommend the Dayton House to everyone--Families, students, golfers or travelers.
