“"Free" is not always free!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

After we unplugged the telephones in our room to quit receiving phone calls from the Wyndham marketing agent, our stay at Bay Watch improved. The "free" gift offered at the front desk at check in turns out to be a gift package ONLY AFTER you agree to go through a sales presentation from Wyndham vacation/condo sales. We turned them down but then started getting phone calls to our room from the marketing rep. After the 2nd call, we unplugged our room phones. Other than that relatively minor annoyance, our stay at Bay Watch was great! Staff was very hospitable. Property and room seems to be well maintained. Since Oceana Resorts (owner of Bay Watch and other properties) was just bought out by Wyndham Hotels, we hope that nothing changes!

We decided to take a trip to the beach for our daughter's 15th birthday. Regina made our check in a breeze. Although the chairs and the top of the headboards were a little sticky. Guessing because of little ones sticky fingers.....Our room was clean and we had a nice ocean view. The pools were clean and warm, only steps away from the beach. We will be back in June!

a group of about 8 of us have been going to myrtle beach for about 10 years. once again bay watch worked out very well. the room was always clean, everything worked, the breakfast buffet works perfectly with our golf tee times and the pool/beach/hot tubs are always nice to come back to.
and leaving the slider to the balcony open at night- how sweet is it to be able to sleep with the sound of the ocean. talk about perfect white noise. and if you don't want to hear it- just close the door and you won't. it's very tight that way....
we'll be back!

Room Tip: they all face the ocean so one is as good as the next for a view

We were regulars at the Bay Watch for a long time. Mostly because of the Director of Golf, Robin Pringle. We follwed her from the Sands to the Bay Watch. We left for a couple of years because of their decision to make the entire property "Smoke Free" meaning not by the pool, on the balconies, nowhere. For some of my people this was an issue. So we went elsewhere. But it was decided that the Bay Watch was one of the nicest places to call our home base while golfing in Myrtle Beach. The front desk, the Restuarant, the bar, all have excellent people skills and make the stay enjoyable. The rooms are nice. Not luxurious but ver nice. Pools are nice as well. Parking is good. Will be back.

Back to Bay Watch again...large golf group...not much has changed in a year.

Bartender is STILL rude & mean-spirited. He wouldn't serve wine to some in our group because he said we had STOLEN all the glasses last year??? What??? Some may have ended up in our condos...but NO ONE stole their wine glasses. Why would he say that? Made the mistake of ordering 2 Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches "to go" back to our room. 3 days of golf makes a girl tired! Got the sandwiches to our room...opened the containers...1 sandwich was piled high with cheesesteak...the other was only 1/2 full. What??? Who put those sandwiches together? Oh and p.s. won't make the mistake of ordering food from there again.

Furniture is still in bad shape -- couch had a huge rip on the arm with foam coming out. Light fixtures over table were all being held together with wire and other similar devices.

Breakfast was included in our golf package. Ate there the first day and after a stomach ache the whole day from greasy food; chose to eat elsewhere & pay the remainder of our trip.

We have stayed here for years but we will encourage our "leader" to search elsewhere for next years trip.

Really enjoyed our stay at the hotel; would have been better if Elliot Reality didn't put combinations for the locks. After 10 hour drive I had to use two bell hops and a call to the Reality company to get in. Other then that the hotel was great; bell hops were friendly. The hotels "Blue Room" had a pretty good buffet at only $9.99 and the help working there was great too.

The pools outside were kept pretty good; it was kept better when more people were down there so they slacked when it wasn't as busy. Great view from our room over the ocean and we were close to everything.

Room Tip: Book through the hotel and not Elliot Reality; understand I wasn't the only one to have a proble...

Kevin H,

Thank you for your helpful review. Please allow me to apologize for the trouble you had with the lock on your condo door. We have begun using keypad locks on some of the condos on our rental program. This was done in an effort to prevent lockouts where keys are misplaced or left in the room. We also appreciate you letting us know about the slow tub drain, your notification helped us to make the necessary repairs. Thank you for your business.

After much searching we picked the Baywatch because we wanted a jetted tub and we wanted ocean front. We were in the conference building, which is the center building. We found the Baywatch to be both family friendly and pet friendly, good to know for future trips. It was clean and offered everything we needed. We did the deal that included breakfast and that worked nicely for us. It has 2 nice, clean, large pools and 2 clean wonderful hot tubs and a beautiful beach. Our unit appeared to be a privately owned condo ( I don't know if that is the case for all the rooms or not ) and the furniture could stand to be replaced. We had a bedroom with 2 beds, full kitchen, and living room with a murphy bed and a sofa bed. There would have been plenty of room for the grandkids. Both the living room and the bed room had nice large flat screen TVs. We also had a washer and dryer. The jetted tub really needed a hand bar and I saw that others who had stayed in the unit had been saying the same thing since 2003 and but there had not been one installed. The bathroom was quite large and the kitchen had everything you would need, including a small coffee maker along with the needed supplies. We would stay at the Baywatch again along with everything else the location is GREAT.
