My family and I stayed there over our Easter break and were delighted with the front desk and our room. Very homey atmosphere. Check-in was fast and easy and check-out the same. Enjoyed the rockers up front where my wife and I sat and watched the people walk by.

Booked this hotel for one night. Upon arrival it was obvious the place was run down. The impression I got of the place started in the office. It was disgusting!! The first room we were given was filthy and stunk like a food kitchen where everything is deep fried. We always check beds for bed bugs where ever we stay....

Room was dirty. Window in bathroom wouldn't even close. Hot water handle broke. Shower head couldn't even be adjusted. Bathroom sink wasn't attached to the wall. One bed had 2 fitted sheets on it and and that was it. Pool awful. When you walk in the office area it was a huge mess! I recommend never staying here.

I waited too late to make our reservation when we went to a show at Myrtle Beach the last time and I had to settle for what was available in our price range. I can't say it was the worst place I ever stayed but it was far from the best. The location is pretty close to perfect with easy...

The family that runs the place is nice but don't seem to care much about room condition or guest experience. We had to change rooms because the cabinets in the kitchenette were falling off the wall, not to mention tape all over from a previous paint job. Walls, blankets, and floors were filthy. We changed to another room that was...

I could care less about all the insults people have given this hotel especially the ones who stayed between the months of April to October . Go ahead and make a right or a left on Blvd and step in the others and pay 175 to 400 a nite . This Family works very hard to provide a nice clean...

Beds were very hard. I felt like I was sleeping on box springs and no mattress. I guess that was from the plywood that was under the mattress. Pillows almost non existent. Owners very, very nice. Promised updating hotel but I doubt that will ever happen. He was constantly telling us what he had to pay in order to operate...

Don't do it. Even if they offer you a room free of charge, don't do it. I have traveled for over 40 years, and yes I have seen some dumps but never been in any thing like this. The pool area had loud music almost all night. There were many x rated activities in plain sight. The manager did nothing....
