We had a wedding to attend in North Myrtle Beach. After reading reviews and comparing amenities of area hotels, we settled on the Ocean Drive Beach Resort. We booked the room directly through their website and then called them to confirm. (Something that I prefer to do to make sure everything is square before we get there!) The person on the phone was extremely pleasant and informative.
We were quite pleased to see that the room looked just like the photo on the site. It had an ocean view with a nice balcony. The view was spectacular (especially at sunrise and sundown). The room was clean, as was the kitchen area. The beds were nothing special but were clean and comfortable.
We got the tail end of a tropical storm the first night and water seeped through the balcony door into the carpet. By the end of our 4 night stay, that piece of carpet was smelling moldy. Had we contacted maintenance, the moisture probably would have been vacuumed out, but we didn't call. We should have.
There was a motorcycle rally in the area the weekend we were there, but you couldn't tell. The hotel had it's normal level of noise which was easily tuned out. The hotel restaurant was closed for remodeling, so there was no breakfast but there were plenty of restaurants within a short distance of the hotel. No worries!
We had super wireless internet reception in our room, which was important to our grown kids. Only a short walk across the sand to the ocean for a swim. We didn't use the hotel pools since the ocean was so close.
This was our first visit to Myrtle Beach and won't be our last. We will definitely be staying at Ocean Drive again. We visited in October, so we didn't have to deal with lots of kids and drunken young adults. Timing is everything!! The prices were great compared to the overpriced mega hotels nearby. Can't beat this deal of a place!
