We stayed at the Wave Runner in Myrtle beach. Room #246. This place is absolutely perfect and the prices are great. Our room is overlooking the pool and is very clean and so nice and beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend the Wave Runner to any family. The pools have been checked and cleaned. We couldn't have ask for a...

We arrived to find our room filthy and smelly. Our socks were black after walking on the floor. The room smelled. We were told there would be a coffee pot in the room, when I ask about it in the office, they were rude. The maintenance guy "Bill" was about as friendly as a snake. The key wouldn't work good...

We stayed in room 202 and as soon as we walked in we seen and smelt the room. The cleaning lady barely spoke. The front desk attendant was rude and she was not helpful at all. The only man who was helpful and actually helped is was named Greg. He was one of the emergency contacts. But Henry never answers....

Rented a room through a private owner/ Debbie Johnson Stayed in her Double efficiency unit that overlooked the pool.while we were searching for a permanent home. The room was very clean and nicely decorated.Which made it feel more like an apartment than a hotel room. It had all the comforts of home.

The Wave Rider can be a great situation if you find a good private unit through Airbnb or some other website. During the off season, nothing is working though. The pools are both down. The location is excellent though. For a family or people on a tight budget this is a good option if you find a clean unit.

The wave rider pools were closed. Asked about the condo they had for sale. The lady at the front desk knew nothing and did not know who to refer us too. If your thinking of staying a night forget about it, this place is useless.

There are some terrible reviews of this place on trip advisor! These rooms are individually owned so I guess some rooms are worse than others. I found a good deal on Craigslist for this hotel. Thank God the owner is awesome! My room is so clean! When we got here, she was cleaning the floor on her hands and knees!!...

The wood around the sink had rotting wood and the carpet was filthy. The...
