“Good, not Great (Yet)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The hotel is in a great location along the Myrtle Beach Strand, very easy access to most attractions and activities. The hotel is quite nice and it appears that improvements are underway as we experienced the sound of construction noise on the weekdays. The staff was quite effecient and helpful, eager to answer any of our questions and assist with making reservations to shows and for tee times. Biggest complaint was the quality of their wifi service. It is free in the room but the signal was so weak that you had to use 4g for smart devices and inoperative for laptops. The resort has the potential to be one of the best in the area with a few tweeks and attention to detail.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view, the higher you go the better and bigger the view.

This is the fourth or fifth time we have stayed at the Anderson for Canadian March Break. This year, on arrival, it appeared that our ocean-front room had not be vacuumed. We phoned down and they sent someone up within 15 minutes...very good response time. In the morning, we noticed that the carpet in the living area was really worn and the walls have taken a beating. Throughout the week, both hot tubs had issues, one broken down for a time with broken glass in it and the other running either way too hot or luke warm.
The minature golf course across the street (free play) was not open for the entire week.
Overall, value for this property has suffered. The rates per night suggest that the property should be better kept than it is.
Unfortunately, the Anderson may not be our first choice next year.

On a related topic, but with no connection to the Anderson, we have found the Can-Am days to be much smaller and low profile than say five years ago. Two of the events that we enjoyed in the past are now on the 'head north' second weekend of the holiday. I don't know how many Canadians can take part in the 'welcome' at the Myrtle Beach Convention Centre scheduled for the end of the week or the open house at the state park. Too bad.

This hotel has a great outdoor hot tub. We used it even when it was very cold outside. Also, it has indoor and outdoor pools and an indoor hot tub. The room is great with ocean view, full kitchen, washing machine, dryer and even dish washer.

We stayed at the Anderson Ocean Club as a "come on" from Hilton Grand Vacations. They were of course trying to get us to purchase a condo. First of all, the room we requested, which was to be ocean front, was "not available." But when we were asked, they told us we could have this room for an $80 upgrade fee for each night. When I stated that we were told we would have ocean front they said they didn't know anything about it. We had a room on the side of the property with a tiny balcony and could SEE the water without hanging over the balcony. That was a plus. The front desk was pleasant enough but stated that all of this was out of their hands. Even though I mentioned that I had previously spoken to three Hilton employees about this prior to our arrival, they still had no comment. We were also told months before that just for staying at the property (which we did have to PAY for) we would get a voucher for $200 toward a stay at another property. Well, we chose a Hampton Inn in North Carolina........oops, forgot to mention that we never did get the $200 promised as the certificate (which state3s at the bottom under the date) that the offer expires six months from the date. The VERY small print in the other batches of papers states that you must send the certificate in within 30 days of staying at the property!!! As I was told by Hilton Grand Vacations that there are no exceptions to the rule even though many people fall for this ploy and do not read the fine print. Never will stay at a Hilton property again NOR will I consider buying one of their condos. They truly enjoy deceiving people and that is too bad for them................we missed out on the $200 but learned a good lesson.

I went to this property for 4 days in 3 bedroom suite with 3 other people.
The property was all new and decorated very tastefully in classic style. Most of all, it was very clean!! The staff was very courteous and always so responsive to our requests.
Everyone loved the suite where it was spacious and well maintained. The best golf clubs were all nearby which made it perfect for our trip. I will definitely go back to this hotel. Just loved it!!

This was our first stay at this resort. My wife and I enjoyed this resort very much. We did not encounter any major issues. The room was very comfortable and clean. No issues with the furniture, it was up to date. A few stains here and there on the carpet but that is not an issues for us. The only thing we did not like was the bedroom had a window looking into the outside hallway (that was strange). There is not much convenience at the hotel. The restaurant is across the street. It's not a five star restaurant (more like a three star). It's more like a diner cafe, noting to bragg about. Breakfast was a buffet and OK. There is coffee shop on site (like a Starsbuck). Parking is a four level parking garage located across the street. Overall, the stay was nice and we enjoyed our stay. We definitely will come back and recommend this resort to others.

Room Tip: This resort is right on the beach. An ocean view room is considered on the side of the resort buildi...

As one of the other members posted staying here is about managing expectations! I have been a club member for 7 years, stayed in Hawaii, Florida, and Vegas and have been disappointed in the lack of customer service at this hotel. The front staff and management seemed to be bothered by customers and don't even have the courtesy to look you in the eye when they speak to you. I doubt we will return unless Hilton gets involved and makes some changes.
