“Perfect accommodations!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 via mobile

Great location! Room was the perfect size for us. Location is perfect for walking to area attractions. Great place to take the children. Can park the car at the beginning of the trip and not start it again until it's time to leave.

A clean comfortable room, friendly staff, great seafood restaurant within walking distance, hot dogs and other quick food items across the street, ice cream shops and more tee shirt shops than you can imagine - what more could you ask for. Oh yeah did I mention a reasonable price. My family has been going to the Kingfisher for over 25 years. Each year we look forward to our time there and never seem to get bored. My daughter and her best friend started going there as young teenagers. Now they are taking their teenage children. So if you are looking for something a little more laid back than Myrtle Beach try the Kingfisher.

Room Tip: Suggest 2 bedrooms if four or more people.

Kingfisher Inn is great location, next to the Garden City Pier. Very clean and accomodating with friendly staff. If you enjoy fishing on the pier, the Inn as a hugely discounted pass for 2 adults and 2 children. We'll return next year!

We stayed at the king fisher for the first time last summer. It was very clean. We could find a house keeper anytime we needed one. The desk staff was very nice and helpful,The only issue I had was being motel style there was no barrier from the noise from the street at night. Its not the Ritz but if you are just looking for a friendly and clean place this is the place for you.

This isn't gonna be the fanciest place you've ever stayed at, but it's clean, the beds are comfortable & the staff is friendly. Our room had a bedroom with a huge window overlooking the ocean, a living room with two chairs, a couch, television & oceanfront balcony (the balcony had a small table & two chairs), a full kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, full-size fridge, table, 4 chairs, plenty of counter space, silverware, dishes, pots & pans, etc), and roomy bathroom. The building is older, but I don't consider it to be too terribly outdated. The pool was spacious and clean - it's right on the beach. The Kingfisher Inn is literally right next door to the Garden City Pier also. My only issue with the Kingfisher Inn would be the parking lot - it's not quite large enough and sometimes it can be a challenge to find a spot. Otherwise, I think it's a great hotel & would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Garden City Beach without spending a fortune on a place to stay.

Room Tip: There are rooms that open up directly into the pool area, I personally wouldn't suggest choosing...

As stated in other reviews, it is old school. But Garden City is nice place to be. No flat screen TVs, no hot tub but did get a good nights sleep in a comfortable, clean bed. Room had nice balcony (you have to request or you get a "stand-up" balcony for $15 less) to watch sun come up with coffee or go down with wine. If you're not looking for first class, good place to stay.

Room Tip: Balconys are woth the extra money.

if your looking for an inexpensive place to stay on the water this is it. It's an old property that has seen better days. The front desk person needs to go back to school for customer service training, she has none.The house keeping service was aslo lacking. They didn't run a vacum becase the same debris on the carpet was there my whole stay. The pool was useable, ..it also need help there was alage on the walls.The rooms are have complete kitchens. If your not looking for resort hotel this is the place
