After reading other reviews, I was very wary. BUT for $340 for 4 nights, including tax, I felt I could take a chance. We were in Lodge I. Only a 4 minute walk to the beach, and we took the tram almost every time. Unit was clean, had everything we needed and functional. TV worked fine, even if not the most modern. Location was perfect. Next to Cracker Barrel, across from Barefoot landing and close to beach. Beach wonderful; pool was lovely, everyone was friendly. I think you have to look at what you're paying and decide from there. We were very pleasantly surprised -- no complaints at all. Front desk helped make dinner reservations at Pirate Voyage at a great price, too.

Booked this resort online with no issue - check in was quick as well. We stayed in a 1 bedroom lodge villa (sleeps 4) that was equipped with a kitchen. The unit was very spacious and pretty clean - probably could be updated, but most of the places in MB fall into that category. The TVs are fatbacks, but the living room TV did have a DVD player - cable was decent and did have HBO. WIFI was outstanding - the best I have had in MB. Very strong connection, even with mutliple devices streaming concurrently. Maid service was daily - constant supply of clean towels. We did breakfast a couple of days on site - it is a small place that just does a breakfast buffet. Might be 10 or so tables - the spread wasn't huge, but it was very good and worth the money. Our villa had a pool just steps away and we usually had the pool lto ourselves. There are other pools for use - actually, the only pools you can't use are the tower pools (they are reserved for the tower folks). There is also a large pool adjacent to the beach bar (did not go to the beach bar - not sure why, but the prices seeme good), which is actually on the beach. The beach itself was a 5 or so minute walk from Villa IV through the sprawling grounds that is Ocean Creek. A golf cart shuttle was an option for beach transport, but we opted out due to the elderly woman driving it in a semi-crazed fashion. The beach was pretty good and well kept - lots of space to camp out. Especially considering the price, this was a very good deal. Oh yeah, the staff was very friendly as well.

OC Resort is within walking distance to a beautiful beach and beach bar. Stayed in one of the 1bed/2bath condos in the indoor pool building. Grounds are beautiful and there are golf carts which can take you to the beach if you dont want to walk. As others have said, hit or miss on the units. Our unit was clean with old 1990s bath/furniture, tube tv, and standard cable. No HD. Kitchen was functional. I think everyone is expecting modern units. Not sure if any owners have modernized their units recently. Both of our rooms were the same old quality.

The free Tennis court is pathetic and not safe. Otherwise it is $20 a day with the courts full in the morning. OC Resort is not bike friendly. Rented a HD, would not allow on property. Which is fine.

Across the street from the best best mall in Myrtle beach. With upscale dining and cool bohemian shops. 90% Families and couples.

We rented a privately owned condo at Ocean Creek Resort. We loved the resort. There are several different types of condos. We were at the Tennis Villas, which were the farthest from the beach. Next were the Golf Villas. The other condos were a bit cliser to the beach. There is a complimentary shuttle/golf cart that will take you to the beach. First day got a ride no problem, after that rarely saw shuttle, sobwe walked. It is a Loooong walk. That block of condos was outdated. Our particular condo was extremely dirty & outdated. When we complained the manager said the owner was in the process of taking the condo off the market & live in it himself. We were not compensated.

I would suggest Ocean Creek Resort, but until they are updated inside I would stay clear of the Tennus Villas. If renting privately.....ask lots of questions about updates, cleanliness etc.
Enjoy your vacation

Room Tip: Make sure to see photos & check to make sure they are current. Stress being clean is a priority...

Booked the room 3 months ago, showed up on our trike motorcycle, on check in we were advised we could not park to unload or bring our trike in the property, told we had to park outside secured area aprox a half a mile from our unit. I'm a disabled veteran with leg problems and we were not told of this in any way when we booked or on line. The mananger said the golf cart may be able to help, but only until 6 pm then we were on our own. This is the only property I have encountered that has treated me so poorly. My disabilities and my trike motorcycle should have been dealt with when I called to book our vacation the 482 mile trip was a waste as we were forced to find another hotel for our stay. We were so frustrated with the staff we cut our vacation short and returned home the following day due to not being able to find a decent room on such a short notice. So as far as the property is concerned we can't comment on it as we were not allowed in on our vacation mode of transport.

Stayed first week of Aug. '13 in the "lodge" rental units. The decor is very outdated as if from the 80's...from the furniture, fixtures, cabinetry in the kitchenette...everything. The first thing you will notice is that the alarm clock in the master b.r. is BROKEN. Then, the light switches on the wall to turn on the den lamps did not work nor did the switch in the master b.r. Even worse, the wall outlets throughout were so old they would hardly hold a charger in them. Mostly just fell out. Not good. Worst of all...COCKROACHES...and evidently this has been a problem as there is a dated extermination sticker inside the kitchen cabinet that tells when extermination has taken place. However, we saw 3 in various areas of the apt...kitchen, and both bedrooms...not to mention huge ones crawling around at night outside on the sidewalk. The safe in the master b.r. closet was also broken and the metal door on it would not even close. The apt. was not cleaned at all the first day...had to wait 3 HOURS after my calls to finally get clean towels from "housekeeping" (after I finally had to go out and track down housekeeping girls). This is not a good place if you are looking for something modern, clean or with good services!

Room Tip: Call a different hotel.

We stayed in a condo in the South Tower. Let me say that this was the worst maintained room I ever stayed in. The price of the room in comparison to the condition of the room was enormous. I can't speak for all the rooms because they are individually owned, but ours was in desperate need of repairs and upgrades. Small ancient TV's were in both rooms. The rug was filthy and very old. There was mold on the bathroom ceiling. The walls need painted. It was a shame because the grounds were well maintained and it was a very lovely complex. The location was great also. Nice beach area. We were pleased with the speed in which the maintenance staff arrived to fix our broken toilet.
