We stayed at the Holiday Sands South June 12th - 16th. I was a little disappointed when we arrived and saw the parking. There are about 10 spots in the front lot and 15 to 20 in the one across the street. There is a third lot behind some other buildings but is very secluded and dark. We didn't feel comfortable parking there but didn't have a choice. I felt a little better about it when I saw the security monitors behind the front desk. The street wasn't to hard to cross during the first part of the week but was terrible as the weekend approached.
The lobby and entrance was nice. They have some coupon books and a ton of brochures on just about everything in Myrtle Beach. The carpet in the hallways was old and outdated. We noticed a wierd smell in the hallway after a few days. It could have been from people coming in from the beach. Our room was alright. It seemed clean so that was all that really mattered to me. The carpet was clean and vacumed but it was very old. I wore my shoes most of the time. The sofa that was in the room was old and outdated too. We put our own pillows, sheets, and blankets over the ones on the bed just because of bad experiences at other hotels. However, the beds are very hard but we got use to it after about two nights. The kitchen was very clean and had about everything you would need, but the fridge didn't keep anything cold. The bathroom was clean too. We stayed in an oceanfront room and the view was excellent. It was nice to be able to sit on the patio.
A tropical storm moved in while we there. It was annoying because there was a very loud whisteling noise coming through the cracks of the door from the wind. We were awake all night. The work out room is alright. It has two treadmills, some bikes, and a weight machine.
I really liked the location. You are steps away from the beach. The beach seemed a lot nicer and cleaner on the south end. It was worth what we payed. I knew when I booked the room that I wasn't going to be staying in a 5 star resort. For the most part the hotel is clean it's just outdated. I heard there is going to be a new resort next year so I'm sure it will be really nice. Especially if they keep the same rates. Honestly, I would prefer a nicer hotel like the one next door but we were on a budget this year. I would probably stay there again if I wanted to save money.
