"Central Myrtle Beach Location"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel is located on the beach and is nestled into the “Grand Strand
”. Parking is available in the deck underneath the notel. The hotel is all exterior entrance with all rooms overlooking the ocean and pools. The lazy river flowed underneith the building next to the parking deck. The lobby area was standard with ratan style furnishings with large picturesque windows overlooking the ocean. The restaurant had an exterior entrance located on the second floor outside and adjacent to the lobby. The front desk was helpful and responsive. I viewed a one bedroom suite that had not been renovated, one that had been renovated and a studio suite. The rooms appeared to be clean, and I was informed they will be going through renovations in the near future. I entered through the bedroom and the window overlooked the back hallway area. The rooms had a small galley kitchen that I passed through to get to the living area. Each room had a balcony overlooking the ocean. The renovated room was laid out the same way with updated furnishings and linens and was much more nicely appointed. The sleeper sofa had cushions that did not fit and the metal frame of the bed was visibley. The couch was stained and dirty. I was informed that renovations are continuous. The pool area over looked the ocean with a short walk out onto the beach and offered a great kiddie pool. The hotel does not offer meeting space. This hotel is a nice option for those looking for a great family friendly beach front hotel on the Grand Strand.

"Nice place for the money."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We stayed there for three nights the room was big enough for my wife and I to have our space and our two daughters to have there own space. The pools were clean as well as the spa. The view from our room of the beach was amazing we will definitely be staying there again in the near future.

"Great Deal for what we were looking for"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Great Value for the price for an Adult softball team playing in October Tournament. five minute drive from airport, 7 minutes to Grand Park Softball Complex, All rooms were ocean view. Two outdoor pools, can walk out to the beach. We played 8 softball games in three days all we really needed were beds, showers and a jumping off to dinner lounge bar. My room had laminated floors which is great to keep the musty smell of carpeting away. Its an older hotel, we knew what we were getting in to. Maintenance is needed on many things but again, its was livable and an old hotel. Our shower had a loose handle and it took over five minutes to pump hot water to the room, but once it got going it was fine. Our room could use a new coat of paint. All rooms had a fridge. Nice to hear the ocean waves with balcony door open at night. Breakfast buffet for $8 bucks I would normally say was steep but that's what it cost for burger fries and coke anywhere these days. So Breakfast was fair (sausage, eggs, waffles, bacon etc) The lounge bar in need of updating/overhaul, kind of high priced $4 bucks for a domestic bottle or canned beer. NO Draft Beer or IPA's. We never stayed at the bar, just a meeting place for the team before going out to dinner. For a 13 man softball team it was a GREAT DEAL though. Thanks Gary Kadow CPOA Cleveland Softball.
