“We rented out the 3 bedroom corner unit ... awesome view!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

We really enjoyed our stay! My husband and I will definitely return! We went to Myrtle Beach to attend my cousin's wedding therefore we were doing a lot of running around. I wish we could have spent more time in the Avista because it was very nice. We normally stay at Barefoot Resorts because it's away from the beach but this time we did the opposite and we loved it!

Room Tip: Corner Units - Ocean View ... awesome view!

I have been coming here for several years and certainly intend to continue. I particularly like walking and I find the surrounding area safe, clean and interesting. I can walk to banks, restaurants, grocery and drugs as well as many other businesses. I recommend this place to all my friends and relatives.

This was my first time staying at Avista in NMB. Stayed on 12th floor ocean front one bedroom condo. Condo was very clean/upgraded and well decorated. King bed very comfortable. #1204. A few things I did not like was that this property curves in like a horseshoe so there is really no privacy when sitting on balcony or opening curtains as you can see the other condos across from you very clearly and they had a winter storm during my arrival and they did not clean sidewalks/entrances of ice to provide a safe walk for their guests post storm. That is why rating of #3. Overall enjoyed my stay as staff is very courteous/adequate activities provided. I still prefer vacationing a little further south toward Pawley's.

Dear Sandra S,

Thank you for choosing the Avista for your winter vacation. We are disappointed to see that you didn't enjoy your stay as much as we would have expected. The building architecture is very different and unique compared to the many properties along the beach and we can understand that you didn't enjoy it as much as most of our guests do. In regards to the ice on the ground during the storm, our engineering director was outside breaking the ice down and shoveling out of the way for the majority of the day and was in the front entrances as well as the walk way to the garage. He did get out there a littler later in the morning early afternoon and perhaps didn't get to it before you had walked out there. We hope that you come back and stay with us again and that we have a chance to host you and yours and wish you a great end to the winter season.

This was our 6th time staying in the North Tower of the Avista in NMB. We come back again and again because of the pleasant staff, the cleanliness of the hotel and the great monthly rate for January. We stayed in a one bedroom unit on the 17th floor; the view of the ocean was lovely every day whether rain or shine. The balcony was often warm enough to sit out on in shorts or a bathing suit when the sun was shining and the wind was light. We are always delighted with the creative arrangements of towels in the bathroom and kitchen. This hotel is close to shopping areas and to restaurants. The hotel restaurant "Off Main" (I think) had a special on each evening for $9.95; this was very handy and tasty on the days we could not leave the hotel because of the weather. We hope to be back there again soon! Thanks, Avista!

Room Tip: We like the North Tower since the sun stays there a little longer in the afternoon. Our room, 07, wa...

This is our go-to spot when visiting North Myrtle Beach. The property is well maintained and we certainly enjoyed the quiet while visiting over the weekend. I can't see a reason to stay anywhere else. When entering the elevator the other morning, a staff member was kneeling down cleaning the metal around the bottom of the elevator walls. Can't ask for much more in property maintenance that that! The 1 bedroom condo with a jacuzzi tub was perfect for just my husband and me. They honored our request for a high floor, quiet area. The 17th floor is the top and that's where we were placed. Beautiful views, loved it! Cannot beat the rates this time of year, either. Ready to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor. All views are good, even ocean view has excellent ocean views. I might even li...

The rooms were spotless, the ocean view breathless and the location is perfect. It is about a 40 minute drive from the Myrtle Beach Airport.
This is my second visit to Avista and if I had the money I would come more often. My family and I come in January and take advantage of a long weekend. There is something for everyone and the hospitality is just great. I highly recommend the Avista Resort.

This is our favorite beach resort all year all seasons in any kind of weather because of the location and great amenities. These are not hotel rooms, but individually owned and consistently furnished condominiums of various sizes with full kitchens and balconies. Avista has hot tubs, lazy rivers and swimming pools both inside and out. Inside hallways allows access to all amenities without getting outside in cool weather. There is a good restaurant, bar and fitness center within the building and room service is available. In the summer there is a pool side bar that offers food service from the restaurant. The management and housekeeping staff are wonderful. Management seems to adhere to strict high standards for the condos. Entertainment, shag dancing clubs, restaurants and shops are just 2 blocks away on Main Street. Shag dancing is the SC state dance enjoyed by kids from 8 to 80 and best described as a slow jitterbug. Grocery stores, WalMart and lots of shopping opportunities are just a few blocks away. North Myrtle Beach is the northern most city of the 60-mile Grand Strand with lots of golf courses, restaurants an entertainment like Barefoot Landing. The City of Myrtle Beach is just 15 - 20 minutes away that offers a world of fun, too much to mention. Avista has ocean front condos facing the ocean and ocean view rooms on the north and south sides of the 2 towers that also have ocean views.
