The rooms were beautiful, we had 3 of them. The staff was friendly and helpful at every turn. My kids loved the pools & lazy river. The locating was great, right across for the amusement park & a couple blocks from the boardwalk & SkyWheel! This is a very family friendly resort. We have stayed at Wyndham, Marriott & Sheraton and this resort was hands down the nicest in MB we have stayed at~ The beds were AMAZING & had a ton of pillows! Restaurent was very good & had a great kids eat free deal, did not expect that.

Room Tip: 2 bedrm corner unit was great, view of Grand strand & OF balconys

We booked through a hotwire special and got stuck in the old building and it was a nightmare!!!! Had a parking lot view so we paid extra for oceanfront and it was a dump.I complained and could have complained so much more from the several issues with our disgusting room.I didnt because i felt sorry for the staff,they have to hear the same complaints everyday.This is a supervisor with his head up you know where issue. I dont care how nice the New Tower is you couldnt pay us to stay on another Westgate property.They could have made future customers for years to come if we would have been treated correctly. We spent an entire day checking out several hotels for future family visits and ended up staying at Oceans One!! We loved this hotel and are planning a trip for june! The North Tower at Westgate is just a bit nicer,but for the price and the treatment at Oceans One,we are future customers.

Room Tip: Better book the Tower,i dont care how cheap a deal you get.

Thank you for your feedback. You are correct; our newer condos in the North Condo are upgraded with added amenities. It appears that you reserved our most economical room on the property. This was a hotel room with two double beds, small table, TV, and small fridge. These are the standard rooms with either an amusement park view or an ocean front view. Our new tower condos contain added amenities such as granite countertops, rainfall shower heads, flat screen TVs with DVD players, and kitchens. We treat all of our rooms with a very high standard of cleanliness and service and apologize for not meeting your expectations. Once again thank you for your recent review and we hope that you will give us the opportunity to exceed your expectations in one of our tower units!

We stayed at Westgate MB in May of 2011 for Bike Week and had a fantastic time! My fiance and I traveled with another couple and booked a two bedroom oceanfront suite for an extremely reasonable price! The rooms and balconies were beautiful, full kitchen, and a large jetted tub. The beach was great and we were able to go parasailing and banana boating right next door to the resort. The pools and lazy river were nothing special, but served their purpose! Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Spring for the ocean front! Well worth it!

This resort is amazing! I was a little worried after we had been held hostage by the Westgate near Disney Worldd, but not the case here. Everything about our room was outstanding. In fact, it was better than I expected. Everything about the room--the washer and dryer, the full kitchen, the jacuzzi--unexpected for the price we paid. Oh, and did I mention clean? Normally, we're cautious because we have a toddler running around and playing on the floors, but we don't have to worry about that here. We've stayed many places in Myrtle Beach, and I can honestly say this one gets top marks from me. Cory at the front desk is THE best. Ask for him because he will take care of you. Even better, he listens to your needs as a guest. That's rare in my years of travel whether it be for business or pleasure. We will definately be returning to Westgate on our next Myrtle Beach venture.

Room Tip: Ask for Cory at the front desk.

We booked our trip for "spring break" ... due to work schedules arriving Wednesday & leaving Saturday. This reservation was in the tower & was a 1 BR ocean view suite. Luckily, work schedules changed & we were able to leave a little early ... when we attempt to extend our reservation we were unable to do so, so we booked the 1st night in the hotel portion of the property. We arrived VERY early on Tuesday morning - and were dog tired after driving for 14-15 hours. We decided to go to the resort anyways & were very pleasantly surprised when they let us check in quite early! Hotel portion of the resort is quite dated, but served it's purpose - a bed & a shower :). NOTE: We booked on (and pre-paid) through Expedia ... through an initial error (that was immediately corrected) they asked for payment for the room ... The payment amount was about $20 less than the Expedia rate! Next time we'll know to call the resort directly first to get the best rate! The next day, we were able to check in (again early!) to the 1 BR suite in the new "tower" ... VERY nice accomodations! Full kitchen area ... not just "efficiency", large bathroom & BR, just great accomodations. Technically, I believe all of the rooms are "ocean view" ... we were at the end of the hallway & if you positioned yourself right on the balcony, you did have ocean view. We will definitely upgrade to the ocean front for our next visit though. We had breakfast @ the buffet one morning - pretty good & reasonable price! We enjoyed our trip, the service was great and we can't wait to go back (hopefully next year!)
