“Great hosts make a wonderful vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Walking out of our hotel right onto the beach was wonderful. No parking problems nor other nusancesn were areas in which we contended. The gentlemen at the desk were very helpful in sugesting places to eat. Everyone from top to bottom was extremely nice and helpful. Phillip was especially helpful on the day we left. The stay was made better by fantastic staff and management.

Hotel room was clean, though some questionable stains on a bedspread. We were there off season, during a cold spell, so not having a heated pool was a bit of a disappointment for my teenager (for non-ocean going season). It is several miles from the main Myrtle Beach area, but not a bad drive really to get to the main strip or to Murrels Inlet the other direction for more restaurant options.

Room Tip: We tried for an oceanfront room but they said none available due to construction on upper floors. So...

This hotel was right on the beach, honestly 1 minute walk to the beach after you exit the hotel elevator ( I'm not exaggerating). Be sure to get an Ocean View room. This hotel is reasonably close to major attraction at Myrtle Beach. The staff here are 5 star, very friendly, polite and helpful. The room was a bit small, but it felt ok for the 4 of us, two adults and 2 children. The only downfall was that it did not have a complementary breakfast, but Dennys is about a kilometre away (if you like that). We had a great time and want to go back in the summer.

I spent 5 nights here with my Mom in February 2014. Perfect location, friendly staff and cheap drinks at the bar during happy hour. Our only complaint, or wish, was that we would have liked the restaurant and bar to open earlier than 5 pm. Otherwise it was an excellent stay. We are headed back this month.

All of the staff were super friendly. The rooms were really nice. Beds are extremely comfortable. Everything was clean. It's right by the BEACH! Perfect. I wish I could have stayed longer. They also "cater" to military personnel. Make sure to ask about the military discount.

Because of the recent ice storm I decided to bring my Dad from Conway to stay at the HI Surfside Beach. When I called to make the reservation, Lauren was very nice and helpful. Although we live in SSB we decided to stay with my elderly Dad. The pet fee was reduced, the room rate was very reasonable, and everyone on the staff was super helpful and friendly. My dog loved getting the dog treats and we enjoyed the food and service at the ocean front bar and restaurant. Being iced in turned into a pleasurable experience! I would highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel sits alone, a lot of beach rental homes near it. Stayed on fourth floor ocean view room with a balcony. If you want to be away from huge tourist crowds, this would be a good location. Staff very friendly, of course it is OFF season so it was not busy.

Dear weezee42,
Thank you for taking time to provide feedback regarding your recent stay.
As you mentioned we are just miles south of Myrtle Beach and tucked away in a quiet residential area. Our oceanfront location is surrounded by Ocean Lakes Family Campground and Vacation Homes. Our hotel offers full service amenities from Breakfast to Dinner. Both the Restaurant and Lounge overlook the pool deck and Atlantic Ocean. We hope to see you again soon!
