“Never EVER stay here!!!”
Reviewed 12 July 2011

We were forced to stay here because it was all we could find, we went down the week of the July 4th, 2011! It's totally NASTY, run down and we were told ocean front when booking, NOT instead parking lot view!! Upon check in I noticed my bed had pubs in it and sand! We complained but they wouldn't even give us clean sheets. I had to sleep on my blanket. They never clean your room and be sure and bring your own towels, trash bags, sheets and anything else because they provide NOTHING! The lamps in the room didn't even have shades on them, none of the plugs ins work!! It needs to be torn down!!! Or condemned!!! Our room had cockroaches hang gliding from Doritos! I am the type person that doesn't care where I stay as long as it's clean I aways say! But YUK, Total Trash If you are planning on staying here U better think again!!! NASTY

1. We never "force" anyone to say here. IF you had requested ocean front that is what you would have received. Most people request the cheapest room, so we offer side views.
2. We offer "daily" maid service for all rooms unless the guest refuse this service.
3. We have trash cans (with bags) in all rooms and offer as many as the guest need.
4. Sheets are changed daily and we can offer more sheets if you need them.
5. Some of our electrical outlets are connected to switches on the wall to make turning on lamps easy (so you most likely didn't flip those switches.
6. Did you report the missing lamp shades? Maintenance would have replaced them immediately.
5. We have a routine pest control plan and we take pride in how our rooms are bug free.

If you look at our other reviews people may complain because it is an older property but we do offer extremely affordable rates, we are located directly on the ocean and keep the rooms clean and we do not get any complaints to the magnitude that you have posted. After reading your review it honestly sounds like a practical joke or a review from someone we had a problem with and had to ask to leave and this is your way of getting even.

"Cockroaches hang-gliding on Doritos's?" You can't be serious!

I hope you did not expect anyone to take your review serious!

To anyone one else interested in staying with us please read the "majority" of our reviews or come by in person and ask to take a look at one of our rooms for yourself. I assure you that you will not see anything to the magnitude of the things posted in this review.

Me and my family stayed here for a week and never again. Everytime you asked for anything it was like you were asking for a arm or leg from them. It was a problem just to get enough towels everyday, housekeeping ladies were so LAZY!!!! No elevator nothing extra other than the pool.

Title: WE GO EVERY YEAR AND STAY HERE
ID#: 112921106

I know there are better places, but they come with much higher rates. We only shower and sleep there. We are at the beach to be on the beach in the water having fun. This is one of the last family friendly owned places and we have gotten to know the whole bunch and they are there to satisfy. If you want to nit-pick about this place and the people you are not the kind of people who were raised with manners!!!!!!!

Room Tip: BF are nice, we prefer to stay on side unit

I have stayed many times at the motel. I do not agree with such negative post other people have made. It is a motel that families with a budget can afford. Nothing fancy, but I for one thought it was as clean as the next one(.I have stayed at other motels down there). Some people expect to pay a low price and have the best. I had a problem,my daughter broke a glass, went to the front desk they provided the vacuum so it could be cleaned up`. I did not once encounter rude behavior by anyone there. The only problem I had with the motel was the maid service came in too early. The Pool was VERY CLEAN and nice.Beautiful ocean view from our room,we were in a side view room. My one year old daughter played in the floors of our room and not once did she get dirty from the carpets. Now on the outside,yes the carpets are not brand new . You have to consider the water,sand and wear and tear they go through in a season. I for one was always satisfied with the cleanliness, staff, and the location of this motel!

Room Tip: Side-first floor

We just recently stayed with Twilight Surf in Myrtle Beach, SC and we loved it! The price is extremely affordable, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the service is excellent. This is a family-friendly motel with a wonderful view of the ocean. From the office personel to the housekeeping personel, everyone is friendly and more than eager to help with any questions their guests may have. They were able to recommend attractions for us when we had questions. It is not a resort, nor does it claim to be - but it is a very nice place to spend the night, the weekend or the week.The pool is clean, the parking lots are clean, and there are plenty of parking spaces. It has a convenient location to a restaurant for breakfast, and it is also within walking distance of the boardwalk. I know that we will be staying with Twilight Surf each year when we return to Myrtle Beach.It was also very nice to know that this is a family owned and operated business. This place is what we considered to be a best-kept little secret - the ocean view rooms are only about $95.00 per night during peak!!!

Stayed a week with a girlfriend. Great room price, sweet cleaning lady. Very nice people working the office. Right on the beach, close to shopping and fun things to do. Have been staying at this motel for years. Folks were always very nice and accommodating. We are NOT related to any of the workers or owners here. You pay for a basic room with kitchen and thats what you get. Beds and pillows were very sleepable.

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for a week. The carpet was a little dingey,but it was also on the hip side of the beach. The employees were very friendly and honest. The beds were comfortable and all in all the rooms were very clean. For the price you cant beat it. I would like to go back.
