“Hidden Retreat!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Wonderful service, beautiful rooms steps away from the ocean- you cannot beat the Litchfield Inn. Love the peaceful beach of Pawleys and that your minutes away from Myrtle Beach attractions! Perfect location for a romantic getaway!

Room Tip: Oceanfront Tower or Dunes are the best!

Our stay was set out to be a great fall getaway. We had high hopes of a glamorous room with an Ocean view. We did get the Oceanview, but not quite up to par on your rooms. According to your website I see glamorous rooms very tastefully decorated. Beautiful, plush… We got average. Maybe below average. The room was not even close to being as up-scale and beautiful as depicted on your website. I am not really sure how that happens. Misrepresentation is really the only answer. Parking was pretty terrible. Very few parking spots for your guests. And back to the room, we were told we would have a sweet it was just the below average hotel I want to get that point across very clearly. Next your cable television that was in your heart. That was absolutely horrid . The cable was very fuzzy the sound was muffled. I don't know if it was a bad connection or just a bad TV that that was very bad. And another problem was the walls were paperthin and we could hear everything that anyone was doing on either side of us coughing watching TV taking a shower you name it.

The price was reasonable however it was off-season and the view was absolutely amazing and the beach was very quiet not a whole lot of people there that part was amazing.

The management and staff are very sorry concerning your recent stay at our property. After reading your comments I can see that we did not put our best foot forward. Most of our units have been renovated, but we still a very few that have not. We strive each day to make sure that we meet the expectations of the traveler coming to our area. I apologize and I can assure you that your comments will be used as a training tool, allowing us to not make the same mistake twice. I do hope that when in the area again you will allow the opportunity to show you that this is not a how we conduct our business.

We found this very nice place looking for an hotel in the area as we wanted to avoid the crowd from Myrtle beach and wanted a quiet place and enjoy the beach.

Hotel is very nice and location is absolutely fantastic. You will definitely enjoy the beach and the area.

Very pleasant check in.
Fair continental breakfast, but if you come here you come for the view and the beach.
My brother ,from England loved his early morning walk on the beach.
To maximise your stay go for the Tower Rooms, Skip the Poolside ones.

Room Tip: Go for the Tower Rooms -Especially 528,628,or 728

We had a wonderful stay, very comfortable space. There were three of us, and had a two bedroom suite with a screened in porch. Plenty of room and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. The staff were very friendly, we had one small issue and they were right on it to make sure our stay was perfect! I think all rooms have wonderful views, but we really enjoyed sitting on our porch enjoying our morning coffee.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with the screened in porch (helps with bugs in the summer) - request 2nd floor to ge...

Open your balcony door at the Oceanfront Litchfield Inn and crashing surf below takes your worries away. Rainy day? Open your balcony door, lie on the bed and listen. Same result. This is a perfect gateway to relaxation, long beach walks, and short drives to Murrell's Inlet or Georgetown for top restaurants.

Room Tip: Tower rooms ending in -32 are across from the elevator door, which goes "ding" in the nigh...

My family and I recently took advantage of an internet special to save on rooms at Litchfield Inn on the ocean. Fall is a wonderful time, we have found, to be on the beach after the summer crowds have all gone. The bargain rates offered in this special were really amazing, and the rooms at the inn were just fine for our two day stay.

While they would not be considered luxury suites, the rooms were appointed with good beds, flat screen tvs, microwaves and refrigerators (no freezers) as well as coffee makers. Wi-fi was free, easily accessible, and plenty robust. The bathrooms were indeed small and long overdue for updating. Each room did have a window that looked out toward the sea.

Our lodge rooms were on the second and third levels - there was no elevator, so luggage and accessories for our toddler granddaughter required many trips up and down the stairs.

Breakfast and coffee were served in the lobby in the morning - the standard fare of toaster items, cold cereals, yogurts, juice, muffins and mini danish. The hotel also had a self-serve waffle maker.

The Litchfield Inn also has two restaurants - and by the way, the internet special included a $25 certificate for each room to be used at the restaurants - and we chose to enjoy a meal at the cafe. The food was tasty, served briskly, and the service was good.

Golfers, the Litchfield Inn is just the kind of spot you want to take your next group outing, as there are an abundance of good courses within ten miles of the inn.

Room Tip: No elevators in the lodge - so ask for a ground floor room. The only ice machines are on the ground...
