Reviewed 21 August 2017

So, having the direct beach access was almost priceless. We were on the 14th floor and that was fun for the kids. The room was clean, but needed some TLC. I think our room number was 1430. The dishwasher dispenser wouldn't close so therefore, the dishwasher was completely futile. The dryer wouldn't dry even after like 4 times of trying. The carpet was rolled down from the wall in the bedroom. It just needs some extra attention. I will say that we loved our ocean view, and that fact that we had a kitchen. You may want to bring extra kitchen supplies with you if you plan to do much cooking. There was no veggie peeler, or grater.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view

Glad to see you enjoyed your stay and we certainly appreciate the comments. We will look at your room as we do not expect anyone to have maintenance issues upon arriving. The dryers do take longer and they are not the normal forced air type, our our dehumidifiers, as we have floor to ceiling windows for the amazing views! Hope this helps you understand the delay. It helps to put the items in the dryer and head to the beach.

Best Regards,

First the amazing - you are right on a beautiful warm water beach with great views. As a lifelong devotee of beaches - Atlantic, Gulf, California Pacific, and Hawaiian - I was pleased and impressed with the one here. Also, there are many pools both indoor and outdoor including a pair of lazy rivers. And while there were many people at the resort the pools never felt 'overcrowded'.

The room itself - a 1BR oceanfront w/murphy bed - was spacious if a bit dated. Actually the bathroom and kitchen were in good shape but not the furnishings. I was really glad the living room had a murphy bed as the sofa bed was old and tired. But the full kitchen and laundry in the room were much appreciated.

Some of the quirkyness stems from how the building is situated on the site. There is no underground area and the parking garage is across the street. So the ground floor is a loading/unloading 'garage' and the lobby is one floor up. And some of it stems from it's 'not quite a condo, not quite a hotel, not quite a resort' nature. There is a restaurant and bar onsite but not a sundry store. The restaurant was just OK - at least it wasn't overpriced - and was never crowded.

All that said...I would absolutely stay here again. I would just stop by a supermarket on the way.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay. I know the Condo-Tel concept if you are not familiar takes a stay to get the hang of it but twice the room with "home-style" amenities at the same Hotel price is not a bad concept!

See you next time.

Best Regards,

Not my first visit as we enjoy the rooms and access to the beach. The views are gorgeous! Eazy walk to the "town" restaurants. Very child friendly but there is a bar for adults pool side. Extremely helpful and professional staff are always smiling. Toilet paper should be up graded, but very nice experience otherwise especially since they have 3 hot tubs!

We just stayed 6 nights at this hotel for the first time ever at Myrtle beach. From our experience we would pass on staying at this hotel a second time. I've stayed at nicer hotels for less. There are a few updates that could be done to make this hotel a better stay. CONS that we experienced were :
TV's were small and no HD. There were no USB ports in our room to plug in our devices.
Decor was a bit dated I'm talking about the furniture and fixtures in our room.
there was brown dirt/ dust spots on the white ceilings along the walls edge.
A shelf on our bathroom cabinet was broken in our room along with the spa tub didn't work either. The cover for the bathroom fan was broke and hanging down. The light above our kitchen table was burned out I brought it to the attention of the staff who asked how about say was going "twice" but nobody came to change it. A smoke or heat detector in our Kitchenette was hanging loose off it's mounting bass from the ceiling a bit. Looks like they did some work or replacement of the unit and couldn't get all the wires shoved back in far enough to remount it correctly.
Housekeeping services could of been better. We did get clean towels and supplies daily but they only ran the vacuum in our room once in six day stay. Bed Pillows were not good woke up with a stiff neck every morning. Also the bathroom towels were like drying off with sandpaper.

PROS: the ocean view was great from our balcony the pool areas were clean, small but adequate. The Avista staff we interacted with were nice folks. The Parking garage is nice to keep your ride out of the blazing sun but be warned it's a tight fit if your driving a SUV or truck. You will find yourself backing up at corners or pulling ahead and then backing up to let another car pass before you can make the turn to the floor above. SLOW DOWN and use the hanging mirrors provided and you will be fine I did it with a 4 door full-size pickup.
TIP back into the parking stalls it's easier to pull out then back out.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Avista Resort at Myrtle Beach, South Caroline. They made sure the rooms were clean every day and if we needed anything they made it happen! We can't wait until next year's family vacation!
