Hotel was pretty nice. It was right on the beach had a great view of the ocean. Nice outdoor pool and indoor pool. They also had a nice outdoor baby pool. The elevator was scary and would break down so i walked to the top and down being pregnant that sucked.

This place was terrible, we went in the room and almost walked back out, instead we tried the pool and there was broken glass in the pool so we took our kid and went back to the room. Then we looked at the stained carpets, cigarette burns, wall unit a/c the was dripping on the bed, hole in the faucet...

I stayed at Viking because it was one of the most affordable places online at the time. It's kind of dirty and a old, but I never had high standards in the first place. What I regret is booking the room online because when I arrived I realized I could have just booked a hotel when I arrived at a...

The desk clerk was really nice. We checked in at 2.00pm. The desk clerk could tell my husband was disabled, so she helped us get to our room early. It is inexpensive ,no frills. It has analog tv. It is right on the beach front and it has rooms large enough for families with kids, that otherwise could not afford...

Myrtle Beach motel located on the beach. inexpensive, no frills, but right on the beach for under $45.00 a night total. Walking distance to beach dive bars, expensive hotels, cheap eats, etc. What more do you want?

If you don't mind a bit of sand and some self housekeeping, this place is good for the price. Nothing fancy, doable. Once you you realize it is not a 5 star establishment you can go on to enjoy the pool, the balconies and access to the beach. This place is always full. The staff are nice, and yes, it...

Although I was extremely skeptical, I was pleasantly surprised! The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean with PLENTY of towels, the bed was soft, so were the sheets and fluffy pillows. For as little as I paid, I was well satisfied with what I received!

I booked this hotel because we were on a budget also because we got our fourth night free. We also got a pet friendly hotel but ended up not bringing our dog. We have a baby and a toddler.
