My friend and I go to Myrtle Beach every year for Mother's Day. When we first walked into the room we were very pleased. Nice décor and looks new. Later that night we noticed gnats in the kitchen area coming from the sink (yuck) and there was mold on the bathroom ceiling. We both left dresses in the closest and...

Have stayed here for week long vacations twice before this time and there are a few things that could be easily addressed but overall another good experience. We had a two bedroom unit that was well appointed and clean. Staff are always friendly. Location is ideal for my desires...just out of the busyness of the downtown area but close enough...

Great location but I should have trusted my gut when I read some of the other reviews. Dirty hotel. There was a bug in the bed, hair that didn't belong to me in the tub and don't even think about using the lazy river. Don't waste your money.

Decent hotel in my opinion... nothing real fancy but really in MYRTLE BEACH you probably shouldn't expect that unless you're paying 400+/night in the peak season. DO NOT PLAN TO USE WIFI -- THE CONNECTION IS WORTHLESS!!! I probably had WIFI connection for 5-6 minutes at a time at best and then it was always lost. If you have a...

Only good thing I would say about this hotel is the location. I wouldn't go as far as calling it a resort. Pools are small. Very few lounge chairs, elevators took forever and one was broken making it that much worse. Free breakfast was just gross! Check in was lacking! The lady wears rude, kept checking her text messages and...

Continues to worsen. Bad customer service. One luggage cart for the entire hotel. Hundreds and hundreds of rooms. Worst hotel at Myrtle beach. Stood in line to check in forever while the only lady talked about accents and everything under the sun instead of working and moving the line.

The location and oceanfront view are great. We received a confirmation email stating that valet parking would be at a discounted rate of $5.00 this week. During check in (on Saturday) we were told that it was a mistake and would be the normal $10.00/day. When unloading the car, the bellman (who was apparently having a bad day before he...

The room service is not good at all. I feel as though I am imposing on room service when I have to have something I need. The sliding door is broken and can not be closed. No "do not disturb" notice on any of the doors. Room not clean. Noise level on the club level is horrible. Slamming doors constantly...
