“Booked again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

We stayed in a 3 BR in April on the 4th floor. Each of us had own bathroom which made this great for getting ready to go out in the evening. These are ocean front with a large balcony for enjoying the ocean. There is plenty of parking, pool area, and within walking distance to everything. We stayed at another property last fall and there is not a lot of difference in the room but there was $500/week difference in the price. So we all voted to stay at Ocean Bay again and booked it before we left. The kitchen had what we needed and we cooked dinner twice during the week. It was quite, clean and a very restful week. The only thing was that the baloney opens to the units around and if you are out, be aware that your neighbor will be too. We just laughed and got to know each other.

This was the first time that I had been on a Girls week with friends. We had a4 bedroom unit on 7th floor. Unit was fine. Needed some updating as far as furniture was concerned. The bedroom that I was in needed the dresser replaced as two of the drawers just flopped out when you opened them. One of the other bedrooms needed the mini blinds replaced as they would not open. Not too big a deal as the window opened out to the walkway from room to room. We had a couple of complaints about the toilet running and they came in and fixed it the next day. The only other complaint was that they were working on painting the balconies and moved our patio furniture into the living room but then never did come and do anything on the balcony. Unfortunately the also covered the pool with plywood to do renovations so there was no access to pool but the lazy river and the hot tub were nice. The view was nice and even got to listen a bagpiper practicing a couple of mornings. We were there at the end of September so there was much less traffic than being there earlier in the season. Plenty of parking so you had the choice of floors to park on.

Some friends and I stayed in penthouse 1701 this past week. It was absolutely gorgeous. Well appointed, clean, and the views were awesome. There was new pier construction, but at that height, not bad at all. The kitchen had more than anyone should need. Beds were comfortable and very clean. Bathrooms were wonderfully clean and shiny. Three thousand square feet of genuine comfort. I couldn't figure out how to turn the tv off because there were multiple remotes for the awesome surround sound/dvd/vcr and hi def tv, but who can complain about that? Even the selection of books was great. We were not warned about pool closure due to construction/refurbishment of building, but with the ocean right there, it wasn't a biggie at all.

The views! The views! The views! You could not beat the views. Combine that with the cleanliness and overall good quality of the condo and you would not be disappointed if you rented it!

Room Tip: Corner units rock! Didn't need any room service/corrections.

This is my 3rd time staying at the Ocean Bay Club. We all love the Ocean Bay Club because it's easy beach access, the swimming pool, lazy river and hot tub are all there at your disposal. The first year we stayed we were on floor 8, and the room was nice and clean. I don't remember if there were any complaints. There were 9 of us in a 4 bedroom suite. Plenty of room but we went in July and it was higher traffic and the 4 elevators were slow moving. Last year and this year we stayed in the Penthouse suite 1703. It was off season so the rates were affordable. There were 7 of us and it's a HUGE suite compared to the 4 bedroom we stayed in on floor 8. It's much bigger than we needed but again being off season it's a steal to be in the penthouse. the elevators were not a bother this time around at all, much less traffic. Everything else is the same...pool, lazy river, hot tub, and awesome beach access. My biggest complaint for this unit is the cleanliness. I'm not sure what they are thinking...or how much they are being paid but there was dust on the TV I could have wrote my name on it! The showers were not the cleanest either, and there was a dead roach in the corner!! I know it's off season but since we did still pay $$$ for the penthouse you'd think it would have been cleaner. The fridge was also a bit of a mess, but all in all we still loved the unit to come back another time, and they seemed to fix our concerns from the year before. I would still recommend getting a better cleaning crew...maybe two people instead of one? We will definately stay here again!

some positives , some negatives. cleaning crew did a good job. worked at least an hour. some minor debris in hard to reach places. unfortunately, they did not arrive until 3:45 pm and we got in at 4:50 pm. we sat in the hallway for 2 and one half hours with our stuff because agent said we should be in by 3:00. the two ladies at Elliott across the street were a bit defensive about our delay. would only say check in is between 3 and 7. Elliott did respond to any request we made during the week. they sent out someone to check our bedroom tv that never did work right . all beds were good except the living room roll out couch. it was really bad for sitting or sleeping. toilets functioned but two of them "ran" a lot and wasted their water. we told them about it. pool and lazy river were very nice. new decking in lounge areas where it used to be grass. security at pool areas very good. security guard Debbie was especially nice. over all it was a good week and condo for the cost. we would return to ocean bay club.

we rented thru beachcomber vacations. ocean bay club unit 209 was dirty. the pots had food stuck to them. the dishes were sticky. the first few days there was loud banging from the unit next door being repaired. the walls were dirty in the unit. day 5 the bathroom was clogged and sewerage came thru the bathroom from the tub. there were not enough towels - after renting a unit for nearly 3,000 it should have been looked over and cleaned better.

Room Tip: explore where you are going to rent... there are many beautiful options in myrtle beach!

We just got here today, and our condo is 1409. It had NOT been vacuumed and there were DIRTY towels, sheets, and blankets in he foyer as we walked in the front door. And we found a fake, USED finger nail on the floor. There are 10 of us, but only 6 bands were given for the pool. The condo needs updates in every room. Old and not taken care of at all. Just an overall dirty feeling being here. Would NOT recommend this place at all. NASTY pretty much sums I up!!!!!
