Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was our 1st trip to Myrtle Beach (my wife and myself) We were pleasantly surprised by the hotel and our room. I've seen so many reviews about the bad parking... Well from what I saw every hotel in that area had the same problem... So you had to walk a little? Big deal... You need the excercise anyway... Also saw many complaints in reviews about sand everywhere... Your on the beach, what did you expect? We had room 301 in the building with the office... Great room... Huge bed... Think I lost my wife 1 night in it.... And it was very comfy... Small stove... Small fridge and a microwave if you need it... Small terrace outside with 2 chairs... Take your own beach chair and towels... Room was cleaned everyday (we stayed 4 nights) The breakfast was the only issue... Just a standard breakfast but very crowded... All in all a solid 4 out of 5

This place is a DUMP!! We stayed in the same building as the office...dont get me wrong... the VIEW IS FANTASTIC...BUT THAT IS IT!! Had to park a half a block away...the hallways are dark and creepy, the elevator sounds like it is going to stop mid floor, the pools are dirty, just walking in the place you feel like something is crawling on you...do your self a favor and move on down to MB and stay at the Coral Reef for the extra 20 bucks!! They have 10 pools, game room and a bowling alley in the building!

Room Tip: stay someplace else!!

Good Nice, clean Hotel.Close to the beach which is less crowded. Nice Breakfast. Friendly staff.
Ample Parking Space. Pls note North Myrtle beach is 20 miles away fro Myrtle beach which is crowded and is commercial. Stay in this hotel if you need to relax and enjoy the beach.

Room Tip: Check in After 3 PM. Hence if you Plan to come at 3 PM pls ensure you call so that the room is ready...

This hotel is comprised of three buildings, only two of which have true ocean views. Avoid the annex building if a view is important to you. They also don't provide beach/pool towels, so pack your own. The pools were quite small, but the ocean is so close that it doesn't really matter. The Tiki Bar is fun (Kirsten was great!) and is generally open until 9ish. There is at least one restaurant (an Irish pub) in walking distance and a small local convenience store is across the street. Parking is kind of crazy - they have 7 lots and none are super far, but they can fill up on busy nights. Breakfast is good, but seemed to be quite crowded after 9 so it is probably worth it to get there earlier. The only truly bad part of our stay was that the only elevator in the tower was shut down for two days and our room was on the ninth floor. Fortunately, our view was so spectacular that it made the long stair climbs more tolerable.

This hotel is a great option for the budget traveler. My friends and I stayed in the annex building (i would recommend the 2 or 3 floor away from the stairs/elevator). The room was nice and clean and the beds were so comfortable. The room had a small fridge and microwave. The fridge was large enough to hold bottled water plus deli meat, fruit and veggies for our beach lunches. The hotel is right on the beach. The area was pretty quiet and the beach was not terribly crowded. We only went to the pool once and didn't stay too long. There were many kids playing around in the pool and the lazy river. I would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed at the Ocean Sand several times over the years. It is one of the best values on the beach with large rooms, beautiful ocean views, and right on the beach. We did have a problem on our next to last stay when housekeeping rudely entered our room 2 times after we had gotten permission for a late check out. When I explained the situation to the manager, he was very concerned and gave us a complementary night which we used the next week. Any property can have an occassional problem. To me it is how the problem is taken care of that counts. And the Ocean Sands manager was concerned, helpful, and fair. I will definitely go back to the Ocean Sands whenever the ocean calls...

Room Tip: Avoid the annex if possible. There is a 3 story tower and a 10 story tower and both have excellent...

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon. We requested a high floor and were given one. The rooms are a little out dated but the beach front view was definitely worth the price! The continental breakfast was more than we expected and the facilities in general were very clean. Though it is not close to all of the good food and shopping, there was a mini mart across the street that had everything you would need in case you forgot anything at home. Great place to go for a getaway for couples or families.
