“Hotel safety issues”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Okay. This hotel came highly recommended from an associate of mine. So without hesitation I booked a one night stay Oceanfront Suite. My experience was met by unaccommodating and rude front desk staff employees. At 1:00am in the morning I hear a voice in the room next door. I rush to the living room where my children are sleeping and hear someone banging on the side door yelling “let me in.” I called the front desk, not much help because the guy next door in the adjoining room did it again. This time my husband intervened (opening the adjoining door) and told the guy to back off - there are children sleeping in the room. An hour later same issue again -- they opened their adjoining door. At this point I am having safety concerns so we switched rooms with our children to monitor the door. Aside from this the room had the smell of stale cigarettes. The furniture was dated and did not match. The television in the bedroom was a 19” that sat on the dresser. The bathroom was small – turnaround room only. Closets were without doors. There was no desk in the room. The dirty sofa love seat was not a sleeper sofa however there was a full size pull down hide-away bed in the wall in the living room, eek. Both beds were uncomfortable, double eek. The hide-away bed had more of a lumpy uneven softness as opposed to the bed in the bedroom that felt like a box spring. The kitchen was without stove. Considering the amenities and security issues, this hotel was overpriced and I will not return.

we stay here twice each year. It is always a great location. The rooms are good. It' is expensive during certain times when the shaggers are here. But, usually very reasonable. The beach here is very good. It is close to dining, also. I recommend it.

My husband and 2 kids and I stayed at this hotel for Spring Break. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't great, so we had to stay indoors most of the time. I took my kids downstairs to the pools and found their supposedly heated pools to be very cold. That was pretty disappointing. There was also a small arcade and workout room downstairs as well. The room we stayed in appeared to have been recently updated and it was clean. The one downside to it was that the floors were ceramic tile and that always worries me with little ones. The beds were adequate, but a little bit hard. This hotel has a ballroom and a nightclub attached to it and we were there on a prom night. We could definitely hear the music from the prom and then later from the club (faintly). It didn't really bother us, but you could hear it. For the younger folks who are single, I would think this would probably be a draw to the hotel. The best thing about the hotel was probably the breakfast buffet. The food was decent and seemed fairly priced, but the view from the dining room was fantastic. We really enjoyed being able to eat our breakfast and look out over the beach. Even if we don't stay at the hotel, we would be tempted to go back there just to eat breakfast.

Bottom line, the hotel is decent for the price you pay. If you want nicer, you will probably have to pay a little bit more. What you are really paying for here is the location which really can't be beat. It is right in the middle of O.D. and you really can't get any better than this place. There are numerous bars, restaurants and even the arcade just steps away from you.

Room Tip: I would possibly try to stay away from the rooms closer to the ballroom and nightclub as they can be...

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.
