On my visit to Myrtle Beach, we stayed at a beautiful family OV resort, that housed one of the best restaurant on the planet. Not only were the accommodations sub per, but the award winning Cypress restaurant was definitely the cake with the all ocean view rooms the icing! The easy access to the beach make this place the perfect...

This is the first time I was in Myrtle Beach and really loved it, mostly because of the hotel. This vacation was planned late for labor day weekend. We were able to get a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 3 tvs, suite. The parking garage was tight, but we were able to get a spot. When we arrived our room wasn't...

This hotel doesn't quite live up to its stars. We stayed from Sunday, August 27 through Friday, August 31. I made reservations at least 3 months prior to arrival. I sent an email inquiring re early check-in; I never received a response. Sunday morning I phoned and inquired whether early check-in was possible. I was advised that housekeeping was currently...

Thank you for your recent review… this is invaluable in helping us to recognize areas that need attention. While we always prefer to read about good experiences, it does help us to know when a guest’s expectations are not met. A principle complaint seems to be with regard to the menu availability in the room and in-room delivery. Your review...

Pros-- nice residential area of Myrtle Beach, so the beach was not crowded. 1 Bedroom condo was nice and a good size. Balcony and view were great. Easily accessible to restaurants, etc. Beautiful building and staff was pleasant. We ordered lunch at the tiki bar one day and it was very good---salad and sandwich. Cons---the pool area is rather small...

My family (8 total--5 adults, 3 kids, ages 5, 6 and 8) stayed August 13-19 in a 3 BR/bath corner suite. The suite was huge, relatively clean, great beach access and not at all crowded, pools were nice--we used all the pool areas extensively. Front desk staff was slow at times.

I must say, sometimes it can be difficult to begin a response… terms like “booty” and “ghetto” and “hot mess” are very rare in our reviews, if in fact these terms have ever appeared at all. We are located in an exclusive residential area in Myrtle Beach… we are the only hotel establishment in this location, and many would agree...
