Ellington at Wachesaw Plantation East
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Murrells Inlet
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We rented one of the Condo's for the week Thru are Festiva travel club we belong to. . we all had a great time. pool was a lot of fun, Huntington Beach state park is a beautiful beach we really enjoyed.. only thing in the activities they hold they need to have a few for older teenagers and the in between teenage/adults. And would of been awesome to be able to hand out at the outside bar on the golf course but I don't think it was ever open when we went over there. but over all had a good time. will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Just about 5 minutes to the Marsh walk, the Beaver Bar and The dead dog Saloons are great fun, liste...

My children and I went on this trip and we enjoyed ourselves. The staff were informative and the room was a delight. The activities offered kept us busy and the pool was extremely fun. It was soo great me and the kids tried to convince my husband into moving us into their homes on property lol

We recently traveled to the Myrtle Beach area over July 4th. This vacation wasn't like our others in the sense that we didn't plan months ahead. We decided sort of last minute to come down to the area and called Ellington to see if there were any openings. We are owners, but unfortunately because of the holiday week, we were told there was no availability. We accepted that and booked a resort on the ocean called The Sands Ocean Club in North Myrtle Beach. When we arrived however, we were in complete shock. The Sands Ocean Club building is in terrible condition, the lobby and rooms smelled like smoke and we were completely beside ourselves. After carrying all of our luggage across the street, waiting 15 plus minutes to get an elevator and going into the cramped and dirty condo, we decided immediately that we could not stay there for the week. We called Ellington at Wachesaw and I spoke with Whitney! She was our life saver. Not only was she so pleasant to work with, she was able to book us 5 nights at Ellington, completely last minute, in a 2 bedroom condo. Upon arriving to check in, she helped to set us up with a beach pass for free access, pool bands, maps, coupons for the area etc. We can not thank her enough for saving our vacation and helping us to create wonderful memories at Ellington!!

If you are looking to stay at Ellington at Wachesaw, know that the facilities are very well maintained and all of the staff is very friendly. The condos are very spacious (we have a party of 5: 2 older adults and 3 young adults) and were completely comfortable in a 2 bedroom. It's a great place to stay, especially if you want to be away from the craziness of Myrtle Beach.

My wife and I have traveled a lot but we always love coming home to the Ellington. It's so quiet and away from the busy ways of Myrtle Beach. Staying a week is never long enough. Other than our normal good stay we had to take the time to mention one individual. Whitney at the front desk was impeccable. Always called us by name and was very professional at all times. It was nice, she made our stay very personable. We can't wait to be back!

Room Tip: We prefer top floor on the golf course

You cannot find a better place to stay for this price! We are staying in a two bdrm/two bath suite, and everyone is happy (ages 11 to 56). We are having such a great time, we booked an additional night. The suite is clean, the beds are comfortable, and everything we could possibly need in the kitchen is furnished. The pool areas are clean, and well maintained. We are already planning our next stay. The front office staff, we dealt mostly with Tamara, is knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly.

Room Tip: Based Oo Suite 5-H-2

We have owned a timeshare at Ellington for nearly 10 years and stop there at least once per year. We can only comment on Phase I as we have never stayed in Phase II. Phase I units are available in 1 bedroom efficiency, 2 bedroom/2 bath, or 3 bedroom that includes the one bedroom efficiency lock-out. The condos are spacious and comfortable with full living/dining room and kitchen (stove, refrigerator, microwave & dishwasher). Master bedrooms are equipped with king bed and guest bedroom offers twin beds. There is a large outdoor swimming pool (unheated), bikes to rent and weekly activities. For those who prefer a heated pool, there is an indoor/outdoor pool in front of Phase II. We recommend rooms on the front of the buildings in Phase I, as those on the back side are close to the roads and there is traffic noise which might disturb light sleepers. Many of the buildings have been updated with new furnishings, appliances and fresh paint. Unfortunately this spring our unit which had been updated had seen some hard use. The walls leading into the guest hall were filthy, and we were embarrassed to entertain friends. The overhead fan in the guest bedroom was missing the chain to the fan, so whenever the light was turned on the fan was running which was very annoying, especially after we reported it to maintenance and nothing was done. There is a counter/bar area above the sink; however the bar stools although high were too low or the counter too high. At 6', I could easily rest my chin on the counter while eating lunch. Overall Ellington is a wonderful place to stay, and the golf course is terrific. Maintenance/housekeeping may need to step it up a little between guests. Ellington is located directly behind Waccawmaw Hospital andis convenient to Murrells Inlet restaurants, Huntington Beach State Park & Brookgreen Gardens, shopping, and the airport. They also offer winter 'snowbird' specials. Check it out. In spite of a few housekeeping issues, we definitely recommend Ellington at Wachesaw.
