Ocean Drive Beach and Golf Resort
Ranked #18 of 52 Hotels in North Myrtle Beach
Reviewed 26 July 2012

I must admit I was a little nervous after reading reviews. We booked through travelocity for 2 rooms. My brothers family and mine were meeting for a combined vacation. We arrived at noon and were not able to check in early but were able to use facilities to change and hit the beach! We did not notice any smell in the lobby as noted in many other reviews. When we were able to check in, the rooms were not together, 4 floors apart. Reading reviews this did not suprise me, and they were not able to switch them. This was fine with us, and the staff at the front desk was amusing. We had 3 adults, 1 child in 1 room, 2 adults and 1 child in the other. We had ocean view side rooms on the 10th and 6th floors. Both had fabulous views of the beach and amusement park. The rooms were on the small side but clean and with comfortable beds and bedding. No complaints about the room, for the amount of time we were in them, except on two nights it was very windy and something was vibrating (vents or railings on the balcony) and it sounded like a helecopter was landing. Also, you can hear the music from the OD pavillion and night club down stairs, but this did not bother us. The pool is on the small side which was fine for the first few days. The last days we were there there was a junior SOS convention and the pool, hot tub, and lazy river all got crowded and a little funky. The location of this hotel is great! Lots of restraunts, shops, amusements in walking distance. All in all, it was what I expected for the priced we paid for a family vacation. I would stay here again!

Book for 3 adults but they said I book only for 2. No pull up bed,bathroom look old and dirty tub. We had a late check in, ask if we can have until 12 pm , state we will be charge even for one hour. What a rip off , not even understanding!! For 200$$ plus a night, I will not recommend this place to anyone!!

We have stayed at this hotel 2 years in a row traveling with 2 adults and 4 kids. Cannot beat the rates for the location. Rooms were clean, every thing was in operating order. Not a lavish hotel but beds were comfortable. Pros: suite has 2 beds in 1 room and full size fold away bed in another room, beautiful view of beach with easy access. Indoor/outdoor pool for those who don't like sand in their suits, walking distance to several restuarants, clubs, bargain stores, and of course small amusement park right next door. Hotel staff have always been friendly, parking is decen, hotel is very easy to find using gps or mapquest. Cons: shower head is low so tall people beware,kitchen had only a few spoons and no pots or pans to cook with (so just bring your own). My only complaints is regarding the pool side resturant staff were not friendly and would not go out of their way to help, food was over priced. So long as you avoid the OD bar and grill you will have a great time staying here without busting your bank. We will be reapeat costumers next year.

Room Tip: So far all rooms have been comparable

We stayed here for a bachelorette party. Overall, it was good for what we needed. The room was set up a little weird because when you first walk in, you are in the bedroom with 2 double beds. Then you walk through and are in the kitchenette with a stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, and sink. The bathroom was set up nicely for girls because the sink and mirror are outside the room with the toilet and shower. Mirrors were also in the bedroom and living area which was great for 8 girls staying in the room. The living area had a love seat, table and chair, and a murphy bed which we used. We had a full ocean view with a great balcony. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

I honestly don't know how the front desk experience was because I did not have to check in. We did not use any of the ammenities except for the lazy river which was clean. The hot tub looked like it had a lot of sand in the bottom of it, but I guess that's what you get for being at the beach. I actually, didn't even know the hotel had other ammenities until I started reading other people's reviews. The location isn't too bad if you're ok with not being in the heart of Myrtle Beach, proper. We were within walking distance of some small bars/restaurants, but definitely a $50 cab ride away from Broadway at the Beach (and that was with the cab driver giving us a deal).

Overall, it wasn't a bad place to stay because all we needed was a place to sleep while we partied elsewhere. We did enjoy being a minute's walk to the beach for Saturday afternoon and the late nigh swims.

This is your basic aging hotel which has a great location on the beach.
The good: location, pool area, balconies, staff.
The bad: bed was hard as a rock; room has only the basics, if you are taller than 5' 4" you will need to duck under the low shower head.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have bigger balconies.
