Reviewed November 2, 2012

we enjoyed our stay at Carolina Winds. it is centrally located to everything you can with for yet it is on the outskirts of the town centre which makes it a quiet relaxing place to stay. we will definately be back to the Carolina Winds.

My wife and I went to Myrtle Beach for our four year anniversary. I used to go to Myrtle Beach every year as a kid and teenager with my family, but the last time was nearly 18 years ago. We always stayed at the Carolina Winds, and I figured I would give it a try as the price was right for the time of year we were going.

We got to the hotel earlier than expected. We figured our room wouldn't be ready yet, but we were pleasantly surprised that we were able to get into our room a full three hours before check in time. The gentleman working the front desk was friendly and helpful. He got us all set for our room, showed us how to use the discount card that comes with the reservation, told us where to park, and directed us to the elevators.

When we got to the room, the hotel was just as I remembered. Our room could probably have used a fresh coat of paint, but there was nothing broken or dirty at all about it. It just looked like it had been a few years since the paint had been updated. The bedroom was nice, with a brand new flat screen TV mounted to the wall, and the living area was even better. The couch and chair were nice, the table was nice, and the TV stand and TV were old, but worked. There were nice decorations in the room, and the kitchen area had all brand new appliances. The only thing bad I have to say about the room is that the bathroom seemed a bit small, but it was usable. Overall, the room was pleasing.

The rest of the hotel was even better. The indoor pool and hot tubs were clean and well maintained. The game room was just as I remembered it. The outdoor pool and hot tub are some of the best, and biggest, I've ever seen at a hotel that wasn't in a tropical location such as Hawai'i, Costa Rica, or Grand Cayman. The outdoor pool is heated, so even in the evenings with the temperatures down in the 60s, it was very pleasant to be in the pool. The lazy river and hot tub at the other building were also both well maintained and nice. I would say the majority of the time that I could, I was spending it in the pool.

The beach access is close and easy, and the beach in front of the property is great. The location of the hotel is also very nice. It's easy to find and right in the middle of the main attractions, which means that 10 minutes in either direction will get you to just about anything you could be looking for.

The restaurant was closed for the season during our visit, so I can't comment on that.

The staff, in it's entirety, was great. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and just plain nice. A really good group of people they've got working there.

I think the best thing I can say about the hotel is that it brought back great memories of growing up, and I will definitely be going back in the future.

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views, but if you are traveling with a group go for one of the three bedroom su...

Stayed at unit 103. Sept 30th to Oct 10th. Great holiday again, but some little things starting to show time for an update. The wallpaper in the bathroom is peeling, screen door at master bedroom broken, asked to get fixed, never did. Screen door handle broken since last year out to patio. Dryer still extremely loud need of replacing, didn't break down this year. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for weekend. Staff was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable. Our room was a little dated but spacious and very clean. Perfect view with large balcony to enjoy it. Very large pool with plenty of chairs. Would definitely stay here again!

We've been coming to Myrtle Beach for over 20 years and stayed at different resorts in this vicinity. This is our first year at Carolina Winds and we had the most exceptional vacation since we've been visiting Myrtle Beach. Our room (#611) was cozy, clean and well decorated. Carolina Winds was in our favorite area, within walking distance to many of our favorite restaurants and the Lion King grocery store. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful, and the one time we needed maintenance for a light bulb, they responded before we were even unpacked, and then returned to make sure everything was OK. Even though the building is dated and not one of the newest resorts in the area, it was very clean and well maintained for the value it was one of the better places that we stayed in. We would recommend this to our friends or anyone visiting the area and will be looking to staying there again on future visits.

Room Tip: Room 611 was a very quiet end unit and had a great view of the ocean.

We have been staying at Carolina Winds since 1986. Have always been satisfied, and if we weren't satisfied with our accomodations, we were given a different unit. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Right on the beach. Pool and area very nice. Lazy River available. Close to the restaurants and shopping facilities. I have been recommending Carolina Winds to friends and families ever since I first stayed there. Love it.

We stayed at Carolina Winds 9/16/12 - 9/20/12 This was one of the best vacations I have had. We were on the 12th floor in a angled ocean front condo. The view was magnificent ! ! The condo was clean and nicely furnished with everything we needed. The amenities were great with 2 pools, hottubs, game room and exericse room. You could not ask for more for your stay. The staff was outstanding ! ! can't praise them enough. I will definately stay here again.
