The hotel itself is always clean and inviting. The front desk staff and valet are all such nice, accomodating people. They sincerely care about your stay. The hotel room was perfect. The grounds are always immaculate. I love this hotel.
Our weekend was supposed to be a nice get-away to make up for a missed birthday. Our entire experience was so great that we booked every weekend for the rest of 2009. BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!!!
I would highly recommend this hotel. It's conveniently located in Central Myrtle Beach.

My husband and I went to stay at the Carolinian for Mother's Day. We never stayed there before but really love it. My husband planned everything and it was great. They have the resturant close by that has really good food called Magnolias. Everyone was great, but we really enjoyed Tonia and Jenn at the front desk. They always made us feel like we are home and comfortable. But most of all they have a great since of humor. Front desk also gave out this book with a lot of coupons in them to give us some ideas of things to do .We had an ocean front suit that had a great view of the ocean from our bedroom. The room was very clean and housekeeping made sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed the lazy river and hot tub, also the resort has easy access to the beach. We will love to bring our whole family next time to stay to this resort. Thank you everyone at Best Western Carolinain

Service is excellent, from the time I made my reservation through their follow up after my stay. My ault daughter and I had a one bedroom oceanfront suite. Everything was perfect. The only negative is the water pressure in the showerhead. I have made a commentt to them and I have a feeling that they will take care of it. Another nice touch would be if they would have an on site bar or restaurant. We had no problem finding places to eat or drink within the area. We rented the beach chairs from the lifeguard, cost is $30/day for the two chairs and umbrella. We enjoyed the Sea Captain House restaurant just down the street and for cocktails on the beach we liked Bummz Beach Bar which is down the street the other way about 8 blocks. Also food was excellent at the Pier Restaurnat around 10th and Ocean Blvd. Also the complimentary internet worked very well.

Having stayed at the Patrica Grand for the past few years this was a weclomed change. Hotel is very clean and staff is willing to make sure your stay is near perfect.There are only a few negatives that I had during my stay. The beach is the place to be but the outdoor pool is very small and the indoor pool (if they call it that) is in covered area that's more like a wind tunnel. On the hottest days I didn't see anyone in there. I revisited the P/G for a dip as I know they have the biggest and nicest pool on the strand. The only other thing I would like to see is a snack bar or gift shop as they don't have a resturant, it would be nice to grab a drink or snack on you way to the beach if you forgot something. Rooms are a very good size and very clean. The parking didn't see to be a bother it's only across the street and security is everywhere (a good thing) . The Anderson club is their newest hotel next store I went in to look around for a possible stay next year but when I asked about the rates were they said visit the web site. I asked to see a room and what types they offered again they said visit the web site. So next year I'm going to revisit the Carolinian for another great stay for the money. Thanks for a great time I'm already counting down till next year !
