I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and two young children. This is a great hotel for a weekend get-away! And the rates are very, very affordable...especially during the off-season. This hotel has indoor heated pools, lazy river, etc., so there is pleny to do at the hotel during the fall, winter and spring. The property is very clean and is centrally located to many of the popular attractions at Myrtle Beach! The only reason I gave this hotel a '4' is because the room decor seems a little out-dated. Other than that, this is a wonderful hotel!! Great hotel for a great bargain!!

Hi! Stayed at Ocean Reef Resort only one night, but I’m highly impressed after only one night with Ocean Reef hotel & staff. Check in was a snap; the lady that checked me in was very nice & knew what she was doing, and I can also say the same for when I checked out! :) The parts of Ocean Reef that I saw were very clean, and nicely decorated; did not use or venture near the pool, but it looked well kept; also didn’t use the restaurant, or the bar.
I stayed in an ocean front deluxe room with 2 queen beds; which were comfortable, and in good shape. Room & bathroom were very clean, had everything I needed for that stay. Oh Ya! Since I wanted to catch the Final Four Basketball; the room had a nice, big HD flat screen. :) My only negative would be that there was no desk for a computer, or electrical hookups; there was a table with 2 chairs though. For what I got, I liked the price I paid & might book at a few $ higher.
Would I stay there again? Oh Yes! Especially at the price I paid!
Enjoy! I believe you will. :)

Room Tip: Oceanfront is well worth the extra $. Stayed on 3rd floor :)

We have stayed here many times over the years, but our last two visits (April and January 2013) have been disappointing. Most recently over Spring Break, we could never get the water temperature right - it was either scalding or too cold; internet service was terrible and sometimes the signal was stronger from the neighboring hotels; our two bedroom condo had a total of four hangers; also on the last two visits, we never received maid service on one of the days of the stay.

My husband went to Walmart to buy pillows in January and we made the right decision to bring them back with us in April.

The pools, hot tubs, and lazy river are still as enjoyable as they have always been, and our youngest daughter loved the new waterslide. We also love the proximity to restaurants.

Our rooms had fresh paint both times and we saw new bedspreads being delivered this time. Everything will look nice, but the comfort level is just not what it used to be.

Room Tip: North side condos are nicer and quieter.

This was our first time coming to Ocean Reef. Decided at last minute to come to the beach for the weekend. Location was perfect. Stayed in ocean front queen room. Room was clean and well maintained. Would consider staying again when coming back to this area.

After a long ride from NJ we landed at the Ocean Reef for a few days. What a wonderful place to spend some time. Our room was spotless, the front desk clerks were friendly, happy and quick to get you settled into your room and the concierge service was was excellent! They supplied us with maps, recommendations and coupons to any local event we wanted to visit.
This will be the top of our list the next time we travel to the area. Thanks for such a great experience Ocean Reef!!!

Room Tip: Every room faces the ocean. What a great wow!
