“Horrible Experience- Filthy Indoor Pools”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The indoor pool and indoor hot tub were NOT heated. I called two seperate days to very politely ask why and was told the pilot light kept blowing out and it would be heated again in an hour. They were not and both remainded cold for the rest of our stay. They were also filthy. The weather was not the greatest and indoor facilities would have been very helpful. The one outdoor hot tub available was tiny and with 5 -6 people in it, is at full capacity. The outdoor pool and lazy river were so cold you couldn't even get in them. I would not ever consider staying here again. Other than having a bed to sleep in, the hotel had zero to offer!!!

This hotel was dirty, the pools were in poor condition, unclean, and not heated. The rooms need to be cleaned and renovated. From the description we were led to believe that breakfast was included in the cost of the accomodations. Had problems with verifying our reservations that were made 3 months ago as the staff had copied our name incorrectly. Information about activities available during our stay was vague and we were referred to a board that only contained usual activities available in the area. This was the poorest hotel accomodation we have had in Myrtle Beach.

The beach was great but the hotel not at all. Upon arrival, the ladies at check in were very unfriendly. They both seemed annoyed and their was only one other person in the lobby. When we got to our room, we walked in and it reeked of cigarette smoke. My husband called down to find out if there was another room. The lady said very rudely, it shouldn't stink, this is a non-smoking property. She said there was nothing else available so she couldn't help us. Then we go down to the pools. They were all freezing. The indoor one was freezing. The hot tub looked like a dirty septic tank. Their was no filtration. It was disgusting. More then half of the games in the game room were broken. My daughter was very disappointed with the game room and the pools. The pictures make it look really nice but it's not what you get. It's older, dirty, and the staff is rude!!!

Hotel was clean, but needs updated. Room seemed more suitable for Spring Breakers than families. Smelled musty. LR had small loveseat, end table and dining table for 2. Old style TV's. Hot tub/sauna not working. Disappointing since it was so cold outside during our stay. Resort fee of $8.00 per day upon check-in. I will not book again.

Room Tip: Awesome view from 11th Floor Oceanview room.

Although the location on the beach is outstanding, this hotel has clearly seen better days. The room had a strange configuration, and was not very comfortable. Perhaps because we were on the mezzanine level, the noise at night (from the bar, other people) was too loud. The windows looked as if they had never been washed, so you couldn't really enjoy the ocean view. The breakfast was expensive for the quality, and did not include any fruits, vegetables or anything remotely healthy. One of the glasses had a lipstick stain.

The room was small, which wasn't a huge deal, but freezing cold INDOOR pool and heater that sounded like a jet plane all night long were. Because it was cold we were really looking forward to some family time in the indoor pool. I couldn't get in at all - it was just too cold. My 2 & 1/2 year old was determined, but when her lips turned purple after only 10 minutes, we were done. The beds were uncomfortable in that you could feel each spring in your back. It may not have been as noticable if we could have slept, but because of the overly loud heater, that was impossible. It was so loud that if we had the tv on we would could from hearing it just fine to not being able to hear it at all. We wont' be returning to this hotel.

Room Tip: No kids activities for the very young (only teeage type stuff); we were told no room service

We had another great trip to Myrtle Beach and would not stay anywhere other than Ocean Drive Beach and Golf Resort. Just a wonderful place with the best staff and rooms.. Perfect place for us as we love the "Beach Music" venues and there is plenty to offer within walking distance of the hotel and great places to eat also. I would really recommend the food at Duffy's right across the street, and the pizza at Georgios and sandwiches are awesome! Our room and the oceanfront view was perfect, actually we had a corner room s we had a side view and oceanfront view and it was beautiful! We will be back soon we loved every moment of our stay!
