My husband and I stayed here for several nights. His work was having a training week at the resort. The room was comfortable and spacious with a small kitchen. The bathroom was a little small given the size of the suite. But it met our needs. The bed was comfortable. One thing the room was lacking (and this is really...

Reserved a Jacuzzi Suite hotel room. Hotel did not notify me that they moved me to a different hotel until the day of trip so I couldn't cancel free of charge. The hotel they moved me to was of lesser quality and price than what I pre paid with the crown reef. Never staying there again.

We travel to the beach often, and we have made this our hotel of choice, until now. We booked our Thanksgiving trip at this resort 2 months ago. Thankfully, I booked thru Expedia, so I had some kind of "insurance" for this reservation. So, right now it's 2 weeks until Thanksgiving, and we were getting geared up for our vacation....

I used to stay here every year, but now we only stay here from time to time. We always enjoy ourselves. Its a bit pricey over some of the other hotels with just as much to do, but it's still great place to stay. It has fallen short a little since they put the slides in in my opinion, but...

We booked this hotel on line without every being to Myrtle Beach and knew nothing about the layout of the city. Apparently there is North Myrtle Beach then Myrtle Beach and then South Myrtle Beach.

The layout of the pool area was very nice, great waterslides, lots of hot tubs and great location. The kids loved it. On the other hand, the landscaping around the pool, the exterior of the building, hallways and the rooms needed a lot of painting and repairs. The furniture in the room was old and soiled. Air conditioning units rusted...
