Our stay at Crown Reef Resort was great!!! To have all those amenities under one roof (waterpark on the beach, the lazy river, several pools, breakfast buffet was good)with Ocean Front view was excellent for us. We have a 15 year old and a 10 year old; they really enjoyed themselves. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves as well; we...

Great job again Crown Reef. Rooms upgraded and nicer than ever before, Jonathan at front desk was super nice and helpful. Tower 2 is the one to be in as it seems to be the nicest and most quiet for the time we were here.

We had a great time the kids enjoyed all that that was there to do, love the hours the pools/slides were open. Great access to the beach. The weather was great, close by to several attractions. Loved the breakfast.

Full disclosure...this was my family's first trip to Myrtle Beach and it was our last. I found the entire area in a state of disrepair and not a family friendly area. Near this resort there is really not a lot of restaurants and/or shopping, typical in any beach town. On the Crown Reef, from the get go poor communication. I...

My stay at the resort was mostly business but I did have some time to take in the beauty of the beach. Most of the stay was uneventful except for a situation I had with my air conditioner. The front desk clerk Jackie went above and beyond her job to make sure I was taken care of and changed to...

So we just left the crown reef. I give it 3 stars ONLY because the rooms were not terrible and the staff was kind. But I looked on every website and never once saw they were re-doing their pool and even called to ask. I was woken up DAILY with the lovely sound of jack hammers and sawing. It was...

Between hearing the construction and doors getting slammed every morning. The refrigerator was broken and made a humming sound at 3:00 AM. The halls of the hotel looked extremely dirty. Checking in and checking out is a nightmare. They have you drive back and forth across the street just to get the key. I would advise to stay elsewhere!

Un impessive, after years of wanting to stay at this resort it was a let down. The staff seemed miserable working there which reflection the way the facility is operrated. We had a stranger come into our room late at night which made us angry and left us feeling unsafe and questioned how key control worked there. The facilities seems...

First, the room was not very clean. The TV and cable did not work. It took maintenance over an hour to get to the room. And over an hour to fix the problem. Second, we accidentally locked the bathroom door. It took maintenance over 2 hours to get to our room to unlock it.
