Reviewed 4 September 2013

The hot tubs in the Village Center are beyond nasty. Could not believe people actually got in them. Most of the chairs around the pool have mold all over them. An hour or two with a bucket of Clorox and water would clear that up, but seems ridiculous that customers have to pint these things out.

for the money, this place is perfect. we had a blast. rooms were clean, people were nice, walls were thick, close to the beach, close the calabash, we could not have imagined a better last minute trip to the beach.

We stayed August 2-4 for a weekend visit and had an enjoyable experience. We were upgraded from our original reservation to a spacious premier suite that had new carpet (thanks Jessica!). Everyone was helpful from reservations to a call after we checked in making sure the room was fine. We enjoyed the amenities at the clubhouse and the staff there were friendly also. All of our trips to Sea Trail have been above average, we plan to visit again soon.

Room Tip: The golf premier suites to the right of the conference center are spacious and clean.

This property is a mess. We read some decent reviews & thought we'd chance it. Huge mistake. Its run down, dirty & the staff are not fit to work with the public. Our bed was dirty, carpets were horrid-we kept shoes on even in the shower. We had a 'mini suite' which was a massive dump. & dont think spending extra $ will get you a 'premier upgrade'. We looked at a villa- it was even more run down & gross. If you dont mind sleeping in many years of strangers filth that hasnt been properly cleaned/sanitized, or you find truck stop motels acceptable, then by all means book here. But if you are expecting hilton standards- which you should by the prices you pay here- you will be quite sad. We just wanted a simple, clean place for our children for a few nights. This was not it!!! Aside from the girl at the pool desk, the staff really could care less if you were on fire in front of them. Lord help that place if theres ever an emergency. And once we finally did disinfect ( yes we went & bought cleaner) & cover beds w 3 layers of our own bedding & towels, & put the little ones down for a nap, a very young boy- staff- came pounding on the door asking if our bed needed fixed. We couldnt get out of here fast enough. The staff truly doesnt care and it absolutely shows. We are at the hampton at broadway now & its wonderful- staff is super helpful, great location, clean room.

Please take the warnings on the poor reviews. Dont stay here. Choose a different property! We travel the world & ive never had a problem with a room. This was dark, dingy, in dire need of updating. Dirty sock in our bed. Spider webs all over screened in porch. I actually had my children nap in the car to avoid the room. Gross! Shame on sea trail for renting this! & dont even get me started on the check in desk when i asked for a clean room.... Massive waste of time. & money. Ew!! Ruuuuuunnnn from this trail...

We rented a one bedroom villa during my husband's work conference. It was nicely decorated, but the cushions/support on the couch and chair were worn out such that they were very difficult to get up from a seated position. We were very disturbed to find that there was only 1 sheet on the bed, top sheet only! Then I saw that the top towel (hand towel) had a black dirty spot, right in front where it was easily seen! Then the TV remote would not change the channels and to add insult to injury the program was a TV reality show that I refuse to watch! I contacted the front desk immediately. After we returned from dinner the remote had been repaired (new batteries) & we had a bag of linens on our door knob. We put the clean sheets on the bed. The mattress on the bed sagged down on the head end with a mattress pad that made this even more pronounced.

Sea Trail is located about a mile from one of America’s most beautiful beaches. If you’re looking to spend LOTS of time on the beach, you may be more interested in a house rental on the island over at Sunset Beach (via Sunset Properties). But if you’re looking for a mixture of “beach-y” activities (especially golf), Sea Trail is probably a good fit for you. Sea Trail filed for bankruptcy a while back but has recently been purchased for a bargain basement price. I’m hoping my list of “not so good” will be viewed by management and taken into account as Sea Trail is ready to make the leap from good to great!

Pluses:
The resort has a great location near Sunset Beach, 30 minutes from N. Myrtle Beach and the plethora of activities there. (I actually prefer dining out in Shallotte – about 15 minutes in the opposite direction. Restaurant recommendations there: Jerome’s and San Felipe.)
Activity Center – A sauna, indoor pool, outdoor pool, and fitness area – All were very nice, and the outdoor pool was great for the family. This facility also had exceptionally good service from the desk staff.
Even though my mini resort room was small in size, the layout was both thoughtful and wise and even included a microwave and refrigerator (a real plus).
Staff was friendly and hospitable. It was obvious they were well trained to deal with guests.
Although the walls seemed a bit thin at times, overall this is a place to find peace and quiet if you’re looking for it. The entire campus is lovely and inviting.

Room to Grow:
Mainly, it’s the little things! In my room, for example, it would have been great if someone had dusted the ceiling fan and bathroom fan recently and if housekeeping had remembered to leave clean towels when they picked up the dirty towels. One early morning I found myself swimming with items such as a roach and a cup lid in the pool. It’s an outdoor pool and things like that can’t be avoided, but send someone out with a net to clean before the pool opens.
A cheap update that would go a long way: Replace those vertical blinds that I noticed were falling apart not only in my room but throughout the resort. (Annoying!)
Consider adding a laundry area in the activities center so that guests can wash and dry clothes while enjoying the pool and sauna. The “mini” rooms don’t include a washer and dryer and taking home bags of dirty clothes is a vacation rejuvenation killer. A laundry section in that area wouldn’t be highly unusual for a resort like Sea Trail.
Think about adding an outdoor grilling area with picnic table for guests In the different rental sections. I wasn’t able to locate one in the “River View” section and one would come in handy for guests staying for several days.
Wifi without the extra charge would also be a draw for lots of travelers. As it is, free wifi was available only in certain areas such as the activity center lobby.

I’m pulling for Sea Trail and wishing tremendous success in the years ahead as they work toward improvements. (Aim high but don’t overcrowd my favorite beach!) Great is not that far a stretch from good. If you’re thinking of making a reservation, go ahead and do it. The staff will work to make your visit a positive one.

Room Tip: The resort has units spread over several miles. Let the reservation agent know if certain things ar...
