Third time was a charm with this Best Western. We originally booked the Holiday Inn at Surfside and realized it wasn't walking distance to well....much of anything in winter. We headed toward Ocean Blvd. in search of another option. The Holiday Inn on Ocean Blvd is not associated with the national chain and once we saw the room, we were not interested in staying.
A little further down we spotted this HUGE hotel. My boyfriend gets reward points for staying at Best Western brands so it was worth looking into. On Dec. 30 the only king available was an ocean view suite. The front desk was busy, but the person at check-in (sorry, don't remember his name) was calm and efficient and called someone to show us our room so we could decide if we wanted to stay. We took a look at the room before booking and were pleasantly surprised. The suite had a nice (although not very big) balcony and a separate bedroom with a king bed. The bathroom was huge as was the tub. The kitchen (with full size fridge) and living area were laid out nicely and we quickly decided we could stay here for a few days. The living area and the bedroom had a sliding door to the balcony and the front of the room was nothing but windows making it light and airy. We found the total for two nights reasonable. There is an $8 per day charge to park across the street and I was happy to find fresh coffee in the business center after a late afternoon walk.
It was close to restaurants and bars and we enjoyed walking to the boardwalk area about 1.5 miles from the hotel. Overall, great experience, we hope to be back.

Awesome place to stay. Very courtesy staff. 5th floor 2 bedroom suite. Ocean front view. A very nice view from our room and balcony. They make you feel at home. Carry bags to and from car to room. Hot tubs, lazy river, and 2 outdoor pools and 1 indoor pool. Rooms are very clean. Rates ard fair. Only thing I could find a fault in is parking. Very nice multi level parking. But it's one block behind the building. But hey you're at the beach and space is limited. Other than that perfect !!!!

Our first visit to Myrtle Beach, a quick 4 day 12/28-1/1 getaway. Hotel was reasonably priced and quality was actually better than I expected. Location is perfect, away from the touristy area yet just a short ride to the Boardwalk. Ocean view was spectacular, bed was very comfortable, Wi-Fi worked great in-room, staff were wonderful and there are many restaurants near by. The Aquarium was awesome but also rediculously priced. My wife is already planning a return trip to Myrtle Beach and room 305 at the BW+

We spent New Years Eve here. We were very pleased. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The view of the ocean is exceptional. Breakfast was complimentary at a nearby restaurant and was excellent!

We arrived Dec 24 and stayed until Dec 30th. we had 9th floor room with gorgeous view of the ocean. we had free garage parking. easy driving my big F150 in and out. Bed comfortable and the woman in charge of cleaning asked if our room is being cleaned properly and I responded with a yes it is. Didn't take breakfast package for Magnolia. Didn't want to be force out of bed anytime to eat by 10:30. Right around the corner Flap Jack serves breakfast until 2. Overall staff members friendly and helpful. Maintenance guy engage me in friendly conversation and asked was everything okay? I even went to the front desk and got a blanket for me wife. Little annoyed on the first day when I asked bell hop for cart to unload my bags and he told me I couldn't have it unless he came with it. First time I ever heard that. I left him and his cart in the lobby.Big tall bellhop with a beard. We walked over to Patricia Grand since they said we could use facilities over there as well. Outside looked nice, but inside looked dated. Time for a make over. Wife not impressed. Don't think I would ever be interested in staying there. Would I stay here again? Maybe, They had free 24 hour internet in Business center, but WI Fi not working in room, can't remember if they advertised it or not. Overall it was ok. My one suggestion is update the rooms, carpet, furniture, etc.

My husband and I visit Myrtle Beach for a holiday getaway and stay at the Best Western Plus. Prior to our arrival I called the hotel to obtain information and Alex was very helpful and forthcoming with what I needed. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Alex and he provided us with local tips and coupons to maximize our stay.

The room was clean with a mini kitchen and had a beautiful view of the beach. The bathtub showed some wear and tear and the it was a bit difficult to adjust the shower water. My husband determined that the water mixing valve was bad and we worked with it during our stay.

We had a nice stay and felt like we were valued guests at the hotel.
