If you are looking for a nice place to stay in myrtle beach don't stay here. This is by far the lowest quality resort I have ever stayed at. It has more of a cheap motel feel to it. Rooms are dirty and falling apart even though they are "newly renovated". The service is ok but not up to standards and the food at there award winning restaurants is terrible. Food is either over cooked or raw nothing edible. My wife's omelette was so raw it made me sick to look at, some award winning chef they have at Marlins. Barnacles on the pier has a nice view on the pier but that's it. I witnessed five food orders and all of them where incorrect/incomplete. The pools are small and overcrowded. Lazy river is a joke, might be a 100 foot circle. Last but not least you are right by the airport, planes fly directly over the resort all day, really nice when you're trying to sleep. If I could only stay at Sprinmaid when I came to Myrtle Beach I would never come back.
