“AFFORDABLE, CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AND RIGHT ON THE BEACH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of spending 2 nights at this very nice and hospitable hotel. The gal who found us a room on the 9th floor overlooking the ocean was very accommodating.
We were told there was no smoking at another popular resort, but not here. We were welcome to smoke inside the room and outside on the balcony.
For smokers everywhere (some of us haven't quit - - yet) this is the place! We were even offered room service from their tiny but tasty restaurant on the second floor. Off season, there is variety on the menu because they combine other dining places all into one. The nice gentleman (wish I could remember his name) even brought me a bottle of wine on one of his trips out for supplies. Such a nice treat because I was not driving and the stores are not exactly within walking distance.
For me, the view is the best from the top floor, so by luck we were excited to have what I consider the best view in town!
Off season rates are unbelievable and yet Myrtle Beach still has many visitors this time of year.
The bathroom was very clean and has a full tub. They even had their outdoor hot tub operating, but for me the temperature was on the chilly side.
The nicest feature was having access to meals right on the property. The beds were nicely done, and the mattress was quite comfortable. I liked this hotel very much and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: I like the higher floors with an ocean view. Room 903 was perfect.

Price is great off season. A somewhat older hotel, although in good condition. No chipping, peeling, etc. Could have done without the big bugs if I left the balcony door open. Clean, but housekeeping is MINIMAL on longer stays. WiFi is sporadic. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful, although there's one who argues with guests having a problem. Some noise from room above. Pools are small, only good for splashing around. One is heated. Whirlpool is GREAT. Good location near Springmaid Pier and Market Common. Certainly adequate if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a beach vacation.

My wife and I stayed October 11-13, 2013 and had a great time. The pools and hot tub were available, which was a pleasant surprise for an October trip. The staff were friendly and helpful and even called a cab for us before we went out on Saturday night. My only "complaint", if you want to call it that, was that when housekeeping made our bed on Saturday, we had left a towel on the bed. Housekeeping made the bed and cleaned the room, but left the towel on the bed, which was very visible by the big lump in the middle of the bed. The hotel was at full capacity, so I know the staff were very busy. I did not bring it to the attention of the staff. I would definitely stay there again and we are looking forward to our next trip to Myrtle Beach!

I'm one of those review readers. I was more than a little skittish about making reservations here. I went in expecting the worse and prayed for the best. We spent 5 days at Tropical Seas and we had a wonderful stay. Everybody was nice and helpful. The location is perfect! The pizza from the on site restaurant was excellent and so convenient. Our room was very clean, the beds and pillows were comfortable. The grounds and pool area were clean and well maintained. It's not 5 star resort but it doesn't claim to be. If you're looking for a nice, comfortable, clean and very affordable place to stay, this is your place. We'll be back next year!

We spend two or three winter months at Tropical Seas Hotel, and have yet to find one of these "Rude staff members" that some people are talking about. Now..I have been there when a so called "guest" has been very rude to front desk staff,and can see where if I was behind that desk I might have been more than rude to the so called "Guest". When will people realize that the people behind the desk want to make your stay enjoyable, so that you visit again, because without guests they will not have a job. So..smarten up some of you complainers!!
