This hotel is the best value on the beach. I stayed here intially my very first time to Myrtle Beach in 2002 and have tried numerous other hotels on the beach mainly due to a better location for my then teenagers to get around without having to drive them uptown. My kids are now grown so this is where I come back to year after year. I have no idea what happened with the vbren's experience I have not seen one shabby room in Forest Dunes. Granted the ocean front panoramic rooms are not as nice as the Oceanview but they are by no means shabby. I always request one of their best rooms when I go.

Room Tip: Request one of the best rooms they have. Some are individually owned and thus have been updated rea...

We stayed at this resort to be close to my inlaws who stay here for a month every year. View from our room was great, but the room left a bit to be desired: cabinetry is old and banged up, walls are covered in 80s wallpaper, there were holes and bleach stains on the comforter, etc. I also would have liked a better selection of kitchen utensils: ie. I made soup for lunch and there was no spoon or ladle to serve it with (only cooking-sized spoon was slotted).

Thanks for your comments about your recent stay. Sounds like this was your first experience with Forest Dunes. We are very sorry we were not aware of your desire for a better condo as we would have enjoyed showing you some other options among all we have to offer our guests. We realize our guests have different tastes and needs so we are always happy to serve by helping them find a better condo if they are not happy with the condo they receive upon arrival. Please note many condos already have new cabinets and are nicely painted instead of wallpaper. Also, most kitchens are nicely equipped with all the utensils you need - if we miss something we are happy to provide it. We are also happy to say the condo you stayed in will probably be renovated soon as we are continually maintaining and updating our rental condos. Most of all, we really appreciate you and hope to have the opportunity to serve you better in the future. We wish you the best - have a great year!

I have stayed at Forest Dunes several times in the future and they have never failed me. This time I stayed in the 3 bedroom Ocean Front Unit. The unit is extremely large with a surround balcony entry from all 3 bedroom, and living room sharing ocean front balcony, and a ocean view side balcony off of the dining area. The unit has a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and 2 full baths, with 1 bath off master bedroom, and the other in the hallway. I traveled with 3 young adults and myself (an older adult), there was enough space in the unit where everyone had their own private space.

The unit was well maintained and the décor was really comfortable, nice and cheerful. As all units are privately owned, each unit is decorated different. Every staff member we encountered was extremely friendly. I love the location as it is located on the quieter end of the ocean. The public area is well maintained. Compared to the other hotels further down the strip Forest Dunes is a smaller property but great! It is not a loud, active, rowdy, party atmosphere property. I have nothing but praise for the property.

Room Tip: Ocean Front room. The view is fantastic.

We will be returning I love this place. It wasn't busy, the staff were great rooms were cleaned daily. The view was amazing and the price was great. The location was the best. Not in the middle of the tourist bustle but not far from it either.

Great hotel. Rooms had a nice open balcony to dry of towels or enjoy the view. The pool was also right next the beach. Beds were nice. Also got a free pass to go to the water park at the other hotel!!

We have found Forest Dunes to be an economical and pleasing stay for us. Out of 5 visits, we have only had one 'lesser' condo that the staff made successful alternative arrangements for. It is clean, good sized condos, and a pleasant environment.

Room Tip: During winter months, make sure that no renovations are going on close to your condo when you arrive...

Our family stayed at Forest Dunes for a Spring Break getaway. The property was in good condition and the room was very nice. Each unit is owned by different people who furnish it and provide the contents. Ours had nice furniture and a well set up kitchen which was great since it meant we could make some of our meals in the unit and stay in when we wanted to, and go out for dinner other times. We liked the fact that we had a great view of the ocean from both sides of the unit (9th floor) and were only a few short steps from the beach. We'd definitely recommend Forest Dunes for a nice week's getaway.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors (above 6th) to get the ocean view from the one bedroom units.
