“Nice place!”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We stayed in room 1412 during the last week of August 2011, and it was very nice! Check in was a little confusing (through an outside rental company) because there are 2 towers, and we were not told about that so we didn't know where to go... there is no office or anything on site so that we could ask anyone (or if there was, we couldn't find it). The outdoor facilities are nice enough. I would've preferred a larger lazy river because that's what our kids were looking forward to the most & it was a little disappointing. However, this was our first stay at a place like this so we had nothing to compare it to. Friends of ours (who frequent Myrtle Beach) said that our unit was the nicest one they have ever stayed in. Overall, great resort for the price!

We have stayed at Crescent Shores for 5 times now. We stay in unit 1411 and it is super clean, well stocked with everything, and well maintained. Of course, we only go in March or October when the crowds are less but always have a great experience. The beach is awesome, the kids love the pools, and we love the view from the balcony! It is a great place to stay, close to everything but not in the tourist trap of Myrtle Beach itself! Grand Strand Resorts manage this condo and they are very accommodating.

We've stayed at Crescent Shores in the past and could check-in and get keys to our room in the office on site. Well i guess that has changed, which no one told us. We had to drive an extra 17 blocks to our rental company (whom we rented our condo through) to get our keys. It would've been nice to know that before we got there! When we finally got into our room, it was nothing special. Couches were dirty and outdated, no one wanted to even sit on them, thats how gross they were. TV's were huge and picture quality was bad. Kitchen needed to be stocked better! They weren't any lids to any of the pots and pans. Showers were very confusing to work, you never knew which way was hot or cold. You spent half your shower regulating the water temp. Something was wrong with the AC!!!!!!!!! It worked but barely, at 3 am it was 78 degrees and was set on 62!!!! It was like that the whole entire time. It just seemed like they totally let that place go!!! They need to update and clean clean clean!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For all the $$$ you spend at that place, it wasnt worth it. We've stayed here before and never had a problem, but we will not be back. BTW, parking is a nightmare!!!!!! BEWARE! and we never saw any staff the whole time we were there. No one cleaned any part of the building!!! Elevators stink and you'll wait forever trying to get one. There arre much nicer places to stay at in North Myrtle, please dont waste your time at this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was just BLAH, nothing special about it at all. One word to describe this place................DIRTY!!! Beware of GREEN LASERS!!!!!!

Upon arrival we found rooms dirty and upon inspection of mattresses we found possible evidence of some sort of bugs. After 5th day, we found a live bed bug crawling in a bedroom closet. Management dispatched pest control and they confirmed that it was in fact a bed bug. The rooms were searched and no other bugs found.

Family vacation. We checked into this unit (210S) 4 BR, 4 bath condo at Crescent Shores and the only positive was our unit was on the beach. The stairwell smelled of urine the first 2 days of our visit.The whole unit was filthy dirty and appeared to have not been cleaned for weeks. All surfaces, sinks, showers, tubs, stove, shower doors, floors, chairs, mirrors etc. were dirty and dusty. Towels and wash cloths were dingy and smelled like cigarette smoke. Bedspreads were old and stained. Furniture was outdated, dirty and broken. Window blinds were broken making bedrooms bright at night and difficult to sleep. Appliances old and not maintained. The HVAC closet door had thick dust/lint covering.Management did send over housekeeper the first night who cleaned for 2.5 hrs plus we also cleaned. On check-out, management at Grand Strand Resort office was not apologetic and would not have eye contact with me. They have also been unresponsive to emails. The whole Crescent Shores complex appeared poorly maintained and managed.
