Carolinian Beach Resort

Reviewed June 24, 2006

My family of 5 and 2 parents stayed here from June 18th-23rd. It was very nice. Our room was in the tower section ocean front. We had 2 beds/2 baths one with a garden tub. A washer and dryer in our room. Our room was cleaned daily if we needed it. There were no towels left when we checked in and they were very helpful in getting those for us quickly. Elevators were in good use. no more then a 5 minute wait anytime. As for loading your luggage there were bellhops with carts this was very helpful. Parking was ok and yes it was across the street but not a bad walk. Hope this helps. pool area was small but cleaned daily.

I can tell by looking at these reviews that the people that stayed in the new tower thought it was great but if you get stuck in the old part of the hotel its like your treated like a second class citizen, and the price sure wasn't cheap, the old part looked dirty, the elevators took FOREVER, the room was oceanfront so we thought we'd be staying in a nice place, the shower didn't work right, the tub looked dirty, the floor and carpet was gross and i had to wear shoes anytime i touched it, i had the same room as another reviewer on here who had the iron stain on the ground, when the maids came to clean our room they forgot to give us new towels, the phone didn't work so i had to go downstairs to get them myself, i will definately be staying somewhere else next time i go to myrtle beach! DON'T STAY HERE! take it from me!

We were traveling through Myrtle Beach on our summer vacation and just needed to spend one night. Our room was not in the new tower, but in the older one. It was disgusting. After my 5 year old daughter's bath, she was walking around the room barefoot and her feet were black from the gross old carpet. The bathroom was NOT clean and the sink stopper was down and wouldn't go up, so we had to use the sink in the mini kitchen to wash our hands and brush our teeth.

The pool is in serious need of renovation. The elevators looked as though they hadn't been cleaned in years and my husband and daughter got stuck in one!

Definately would NOT stay here again. Perhaps the rooms in the newer tower are nicer, but ours was in desperate need of a renovation and a good cleaning.

1. Parking...be prepared to hike across two streets to the parking garage. A long, long walk for those who cannot walk too well.

2. Front Desk....Friendly, helpful, intelligent, and expedient.

3. The room was clean although towels seemed scarce. The remote was faulty, and not much to choose on the tube. The room was a non-smoking but we noted stains all over the floor and wall that no doubt could have been cleaned aside from just a quick vacuum job. The balcony is small and with the ac unit exhausting on your backside....you tend to get stuffy really quick not to mention the jet like noise that accompanies the hot blast of air.

4. The pools were clean and reasonable considering the load at the time.

Overall, it is rated a top notch place and charges the top notch price. If would have gotten our return business later this year had someone just taken the time to make the small things right.

The hotel itself was nice and only a few yrs old however the service was the biggest problem. We had just drove 15hrs and wanted to go to bed however there was no bedding on the pull out couch. I called down and asked for them to bring it up and never came. I finally had to go down and ask the front desk.
Everyday, we had to ask for more towels for they only supplied 3 but we had 4 people staying in the room. When we asked for more towels, we'd wait for a number of hours or we have to go down to the lobby to get them.
We had to ask for toilet paper as well as tissues numerous times and the room wasn't cleaned daily.
I can understand forgetting to stock something in a room when it's been cleaned but day after day of constantly missing things starts to get really frustrating. Also, the font desk staff were extremely unprofessional.
It's a big disappointment when we just spent $3200 for 10 days and 2 rooms and we can't even get the basic service. The good news is that there are a number of hotels on the strip to choose from and we'll know for the next time to not come back to this hotel! So much for the Best Western reputable name!

My family of 3 teenagers and two adults stayed for 4 nights during the first week of April. Being a mom, I loved the new and clean full sized kitchen first and the separated bedrooms second. The master bedroom had a king sized bed! The balcony of the large efficiency extended to the master bedroom (a treat that I wasn't expecting). The hotel was close to a grocery, shopping, and entertainment. The best ice cream shop is just around the corner. The pier is about a mile away and was the site of non-stop fishing for my 16 year old son. The pools are small but with the ocean right behind the tower, no one really wanted to go in them. We will definitely return next spring!
