This was our 2nd year returning to this hotel. We go to bike week every year and it's nice to stay at a place that is so accomidating to motorcycles. The rooms are very nice and clean and the staff takes excellent care of everyone. We will be back next year too!

I'm a single mom, and this was my first visit to the Holiday Sands North Hotel... My children and I had a blast, this was our first vacation as a family and we really enjoyed our stay, great location, friendly staff, clean, overall even though the weather was not the best, the hotel had extras that made our stay enjoyable...I would recommend this hotel to others, great place for families to enjoy themselves and enjoy the beach...(Spring Break)

Room Tip: Ocean front is the way to go!!!

Just came back from staying at the Holiday Sands North. From the minute I arrived I was greeted by Jeremy at the desk to be checked in. Nothing but pleasant. I had asked for a high floor and he gave me the 9th.and what a perfect room! The housekeeper Patricia was already on the floor when I was going into the room and ask if there was anything that I needed and was it OK. The room was clean! I had booked the 2 bedroom with 3 beds. The kitchen and bath was clean also. Yes, its an older hotel but there is NOTHING at all wrong with it. Pools were also very clean and the grounds. Thank you again Holiday Sands North and staff. I will be seeing you again this summer. Don't ever change! All the staff I met from check in, housekeeping, and even the pool guys were all 10 stars!

Room Tip: I like a high floor room with the ocean front. Great for pictures.

Keep in mind, my stay was during winter, not during peak season. Alright, it was a good deal, the room was nice and it was cheap which is what we were looking for. We didn't know where it was located prior to booking since we just needed a decent halfway point to stay on our way to Florida and this hotel popped up in our search.

It is right up on the board walk.. we could see the ocean right outside our room window... (and it was awesome watching a few dolphins hanging out the next morning.) There was a slight odor of cleaners in the air, the bed was hard (Which was okay for me), and you have to park across the street.. but for the price and location it was worth it and I'd go back.

I was really nervous to book this hotel after reading some reviews but I'm glad I did.
Terry checked us in and was very friendly, he def. placed a smile on our faces. Thank You Terry! We booked a oceanfront room with balcony and kitchen on the 8th floor; the views were beautiful. Flat screen with cable, new-er white CLEAN kitchen appliances, CLEAN linen, CLEAN bathroom and no smells. The kitchen had everything we needed(pots, utensils, plates all clean) except dish detergent which we had due to reading here first (no big deal $1) There is restaurants/bars and shopping within walking and when we did leave there was always a park AND felt safe.There was also maid service all 7 days of our trip, something I don't find in many efficiency rooms. Yes, the beds are rock hard but not a deal breaker for us.
All in all a peaceful relaxing trip. Will be back next year.

Room Tip: High oceanfront if you can

Place was Horrible! Rooms were Nasty! There was still food crumbs in the floor. Room was Musty and Dusty! Could not hardly sleep due to allergy problems. They have drop ceilings in the bathrooms. I did not look but those are not to be used in wet environments. Mold Will Grow There! Beds were Rock Hard. Loud Music and "Pimped Out" cars with loud exhaust covered the roads and were trying to "show off" and Noise was constant. Constant yelling and hollering from balconies, and between hotels. Will Never go back again. They are happy to take your money, don't expect to see it again. You will get a run around from the people at the front desk saying that have to check with "Management". Pool facilities were Nasty also. You could see the gunk floating in the pool. Never again. All of the good reviews must come from employees or owners. No way anyone would think this is an excellent place.

Room Tip: Don't Stay Here!!!

Dear 219JamesB,

Thank you for your recent stay at Holiday Sands North. We take great pride in dealing with our customers in a friendly, polite and efficient manner.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review on your most recent experience at Holiday Sands North “On the Boardwalk”. In trying to comment on you review—our property is located in Downtown Myrtle Beach along the 1.2 mile Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Ocean Boulevard, so there is an increase in street noise as the Summer Season approaches. Many times some of these issues can be avoided by doing some research prior to making a reservation and determining which area of Myrtle Beach you are interested in vacationing—for example, Downtown Myrtle Beach, South Beach area or the northern end of Myrtle Beach. As far as “constant yelling and hollering from balconies, and between hotels” we have private on site security that is contracted and this helps to alleviate these situations as we make every effort to keep a quiet, family atmosphere for our guests/patrons. However, even these measures will not stop every situation and sometimes other steps may have to be taken. Our pools and pool decks are checked multiple times daily and if a situation arises it is dealt with in a timely manner. The water quality and surrounding pool deck areas are monitored and checked a minimum of 3-4 times daily and are checked more often as the season gets busier and we have more guests/patrons using our pools and pool decks. As far as “gunk floating in the pool”, the only thing floating in the pools may possibly be pollen, which would be skimmed, during the spring months and on occasion the hot tubs/spas will need a de-foaming agent added to the water. As far as our staff, from housekeeping, front desk to management, we have some of the best “Southern Hospitality” you will find in the Myrtle Beach area and they are second to none. As far as “you will get a run around from the people at the front desk saying that have to check with “Management”, I personally work the front desk from 8:00 AM until 4:30 PM daily (excluding Tuesdays and Sundays) and Tommy is available at the front desk on those two days. A manager is readily available every day for a guest/patron to speak with from 8:00 AM through 4:30 PM and at many other times outside of these hours. Our rooms are clean, updated and affordable and we are constantly making improvement to our resort. As far as the accusation “All of the good reviews must come from the employees or owners. No way anyone would think this is an excellent place” says a lot about the type of individual with which we are dealing.

We are very open to comments and suggestions, as there is always room for improvements so long as they are factual.

Thanks again for choosing Holiday Sands North “On the Boardwalk”.

Sincerely,
Garett Williams—Manager
