“Adequate...a little overpriced.”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

I felt like I was in a service corridor of the building as housekeeping was constantly leaving carts parked in the hallways. I prefer not to see what goes on behind the scenes. Room service was impressive as we received a courtesy call ensuring that our request had been granted. Not the nicest hotel I have stayed in for the price. I probably would look elsewhere next time. The grounds were not as well kept as others nearby. Parking was extremely tight.

We had a great time ath Grande Shores Ocean Resort, our 5th floor balcony overlooking the beach listening to the waves was great. Clean room, Clean bathroom, large size refrigertor, walking distance to a lot of nice restaurants, and stores Stein Mart was one of my favorite stores.
It was quiet, and we got great rates for April 2012.

My family stayed for a baseball tournament. The fun was great but the hotel and accomidations were below average. Room had a very nice view but was very much outdated. The elevators had a yucky smell. The sea level pool was too small. The pool deck was too small. This was a self serve and had a "bring your own" everything. No beach towls---ran out of pool towls by 2:00. No hotel service. Did not attempt the resteraunt for our own good. I would not stay at the Grand Shores Ocean Resort again. I would not for a minue believe any of the reviews that were over a three. I would barely believe them. Anyone ratiing the hotel a 5 must be an owner.

Room Tip: Go to a differnet hotel

Sorry this guest found Grande Shores so lacking, but please know our homeowners are not allowed to go on Trip Advisor. We would never endorse this kind of practice. We love serving our guests and find reviews like this one hard to read. You can see there is a mixture of good and bad in most hotel reviews. We take the good with the bad and try to always improve our service in the process. We appreciate all feedback.

Grande Shores is one of only a few that still allow smoking. Rooms are a little older but very clean. The bar downstairs has cheap dinks from 4-7. Internet was useable the entire time unlike most hotels that completely crash.

Great expierence and I will be back. Keep up the great hotel and keep the smoking rooms!

We are happy this guest enjoyed the resort. We do have a few smoking condos being offered but most of the resort is non-smoking. A few homeowners do continue to keep their condo as a smoking unit. Our pool decks and all public areas are non-smoking.

I've stayed at Grande Shores the past three years in an oceanfront room and feel confident in offering a balanced review of the facility. The good - they have a great oceanfront location, on the quieter - more family friendly end of Myrtle Beach. The cleaning staff does a good job with the rooms and common areas. The folks in the check-in area were friendly. The three bedroom condo I've stayed in is plenty large with a full kitchen, which made it more homey - albeit the furniture and fabrics were dated and worn. The pools are adequate, though I am not impressed with the 7th floor pool, hot tubs and lazy river. I actually like the in house restaurant for take out, but have no expectation of it being 4 star cuisine. The beach was lovely, and I felt safe walking early in the AM or late at night. The bad - after three trips, I'm convinced management is not concerned with things being operational - simply because there are problems with the same items every time I'm there. One of the hot tubs on the 7th floor was broken, again. The elevators were constantly on the fritz, meaning you either walked or waited long periods of time - again. Only one out of three of the foot/body washing stations were working, again. One of the 1st floor bathroom doors, near the pool, was busted and could not be fully shut. It would also be nice if staff made an effort to keep the pool areas and common bathrooms more well kept during the day. There is generally an unpleasant odor in the elevators and parking garage area, which is most likely due to constant wetness and people leaving trash outside their doors overnight. Sound is easily transmittable and if your unfortunate enough to be located next to, above or beneath a rambunctious family or a bunch of partiers, your in for a world of pain and would be advised to bring earplugs and a sedative. Overall, I'd stay again. I just wish they'd put more effort into up keeping the property and additional presence of security would be nice to keep the more rowdy folks in check.

Room Tip: Choose oceanfront, floor 8 or higher.

Super relaxing,very family oriented and out of the hustle and bussel of heart of Myrtle Beach,but close enough to get to any main atttraction within minutes drive.
Staff was very friendly and eager to help, at check-in I decided to upgrade my room and without hesitation or delay it was done,no questions asked.
If you are looking for that secluded walk on the beach this is it,Grand shores is the last hotel on Myrtle Beach before huge residential section ( very private).
Very satisfied and I would recomend for a quiet relaxing get away.
