First the bad. I had two major gripes with this hotel. There is virtually no parking at the hotel. There are several outlying lots, but one of them is about two blocks away. When the hotel is full parking is a nightmare. The second gripe comes if you are given a room in the South tower. The South Tower is ten stories tall with only one elevator which guest and staff must use together. This makes for some very long waits to go to or from your room.
Those gripes aside, The Best Western Ocean Sands is definitely worth the cost which is very reasonable. It is an older hotel in an older section of North Myrtle Beach. We spent a week in a room on the sixth floor of the South Tower. We has a great view of the ocean and a small balcony which was just right for the two of us. They provide a daily continental breakfast which, while not fancy, provides you a good start to the day.
Being in an older, less "hip" area of North Myrtle Beach is an advantage for this hotel. There is much less auto traffic so the area is quieter and easier to move around in.
Don't expect anything swank or fancy from The Ocean Sands. You get an older hotel that is clean and friendly. Stop at the Tiki Bar by the hotel pool and talk to Kirsten the Bartender. She will take care of you and make sure you have a good time.
