“Fun in the Sun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is our second time staying at this resort and wont be the last. Upon arriving at the resort, we were told we were in room 1036 in tower 2. I told the clerk this was unacceptable because when I made the reservation, I requested a high floor because of the noise and lack of privacy staying right above the lazy river. She didn't seem to care and stated that was the only room available. We went up to the room and knew right from walking in, this was not going to work for us. I called the front desk and Debbie answered. She not only moved us to a higher floor, but upgraded us to a 2 bedroom condo. This really made our vacation awesome!! The views and the privacy were outstanding. My advice if you are staying in tower 2, ask for a higher floor! The housekeeping supervisor was great...she wanted to make sure everything was up to standard everyday! I was also very impressed with every employee we passed on the elevator or anywhere on the resort, they always spoke and made sure our stay was perfect. Thank you so much Debbie and the Prince Resort for making our vacation great once again!

Room Tip: Tower 2 is the best for the money and the views

My family of 7 just returned from the prince on September 6th and this place was the best place we have ever stayed in. It had everything we needed in the building. We stayed in tower 2 a corner 2 bedroom 2 bath and it was great. We will definitely be making this our new hotel for family vacations twice a year. It was very clean and well kept and the views are even greater. For the first time in 16 years my family didn't want to leave and we wished we could live in this place. Thanks prince resort for making such good memories for my family. You are the best hotel in our opinion and please keep it up because we will be coming twice a year from now on!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in 1423 in second tower Corner Room view are awesome

Three of us stayed in a 2 bedroom. Very comfortable, great view, pool, beach, pier. Flounders Fish House not far, nice walk to shops, food mart, etc. night life is a little more of a drive but not far South. Liked not being so close to late night noise. More of a family atmosphere which I liked. There was a restaurant down at the pier. Ok food , drinks are pricey but its like that everywhere. People there are very hospitable and it was convenient. Never ate at the restaurant in the tower one, it closes at 9 pm FYI.

We requested a quiet room and we had one that also had a fantastic ocean view. We've been coming to this area for over 10 years to visit family and this is the first time we've said we would stay at the same hotel again.

The only two negatives we have are: the room could have been a little cleaner (dead bug left on the ceiling from previous renters). Cleaning staff forgot to leave wash cloths twice in the three days we stayed here.

Room Tip: This was the first time I said I didn't want an ocean front room and I must say the ocean view r...

Well my wife and I celebrated our 51st. Wedding Anniversary at the Prince Resort as we have for the past 2 or 3 Anniversaries. As usual we had a great time and received the best of everything at the Prince. This was our 14th. stay at the Prince Resort so enough said, we love the Place and the service provided by their excellent staff. This time we were on the 17th. floor of the Tower 1 and the view at that level is absolutely breathtaking. You can see the entire Myrtle beach strand at that level plus an awesome view of the ocean, the marsh and the city of Cherry Grove right on down the beach to downtown area of Myrtle Beach including the 200 foot high sky wheel. The lights of that entire area at night are a photographers dream as well as the day time views. We've already scheduled another trip for the month of September and of course it is at the Prince Resort, it's a great place to stay and the Place to Be when at the beach.

Room Tip: Stay on the higher floors and if possible stay ocean front at the south end of the towers. If you s...

We stayed August 24-29th 2013. My sisters and nieces came for a family vacation. There was plenty to do here at the resort. We ate and had drinks at the pier restaurant, it was a little pricey, but you also pay for the convenience of not having to get in the car. There is a grocery/gift store within walking distance. We rented an umbrella and 2 chairs which was a well spent $25.00 a day with the little ones and some of us fair skinned people also!! Made a lot of memories. The 3 bedroom condo we stayed in was nice and big for all of us, huge bathrooms off of each bedroom and a beautiful view from our ocean front room. We were in tower 1. Hope this helps anyone thinking of going. We will be back!!

Room Tip: We stayed in 1105....nice and spacious

Debra - we are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Prince. The owner for Unit 1105 contacted me right away to let me know that he too was excited about your response and your high marks for the Unit. He has been working with the on-site management company to completely upgrade the unit over the last year with the intent to see that his clients can enjoy their stay in their unit. Looking forward to providing you with another great vacation here at the Prince in the future.

I so wanted to be impressed with the Prince Resort, but I can't say that I am. The good - I booked through Carolina Reality and was very happy with their service, it was my first time using them. The actual unit was clean and very comfortable for a family of four. It showed some signs of wear-and-tear like marks on the walls, but otherwise well kept! The bad - I had more of an issue with the resort. The ground floor lobby and the halls on the 6th floor always had an odor. Also, there wasn't a trash chute (or at least we couldn’t locate it) – we had to use the cans next to the elevators - just not ideal for a condo rental with no maid service. While I only visited the main lobby one time, it appeared to be dated. Also, I personally didn't like the fact that the hotel is connected to the pier, lots of foot traffic during the late evening. Again, we stayed on the 6th floor - every morning at 8AM (if not earlier), they would clean the pool with a leaf blower...can you say super loud!!! As for the location, it wasn't ideal for us - it was a little far as we normally stay in the Crescent Beach section of NMB - but it was doable for a last minute booking.

Overall, not a totally bad place - I would only return if completely necessary!

Room Tip: Stay on a high floor, you can hear everything that's going on at the pool.
