My wife and I are traveling to Myrtle Beach with our two toddlers (2 and 4) this upcoming September. It is our first time in Myrtle Beach. After extensive research, I feel I am finally between these two options.
We would definitely go with a room with a separate bedroom and living space so we have some freedom and access to the balcony when the kids are napping/sleeping for the night. We are thinking 1 bedroom suites in both of them.
Does anyone see any reason for the Hampton Inn & Suites over The Caribbean. The Caribbean is much more reasonably priced given it is the "off" season. Hampton Inn gets rave reviews too and has free breakfast.
We are looking for a kid friendly beach, some kid friendly pools, and decent proximity to the beach boardwalk so we can walk there (even though we will have a car).
I looked at a few others including the following and had the following thoughts:
Compass Cove: Too far to the South whereas we couldn't walk. Rates are cheapest.
Dunes Village: Too far to the North and with the large indoor waterpark the kids might not ever want to go outside to the beach which is most of the reason we are going. Didn't hear much about outdoor pools though. Most expensive option.
Breakers: Closest to the boardwalk but didn't look as nice as the Caribbean. Rates are equal to Compass.
Any thoughts are appreciated!
