“no elevator”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

The hotel's site does't say that the place does't have elevator! Was so frustrating to climb up to the third floor with our baby and stuff. Place in need of a lot of repairs. Would not recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: When travel with kids make sure to ask for building with an elevator.

this place is utterly gross! my 3 year old got ate up by bed bugs that took us weeks to heal and he still has a few scars on his feet from the terrible bites. the sliding glass door leaked. one night it came a downpour and we got up the next morning to soggy, soaked carpet beside our bed. the floors were filthy to the point we could not remove our shoes. they need to be shut down by the health department. horrible horrible horrible!

This "lodge" should be knocked down. It is in the middle of chaos and very unsafe. Not enough parking, so you have to chance your car across the way. The shower was so rusted out, we might have fallen thru the floor! Efficiency was dirty and dark and I would NEVER cook, let alone eat off of anything in there. Definetly a shady lodge. Check in area stunk to high heavens and looked like a scene out of the 1960's! They wanted whole stay up front. Thank GOD their was a problem with our credit card and we only stayed 1 night, which we paid for when reserving. Left there 1st thing in the morning and headed to the Hilton 10 miles down the road which was LESS MONEY and BEAUTIFUL! CLEAN! SAFE!

Room Tip: Go to Hampton Inn, Hilton, Royal Plams, Kingston! Do not stay here! Don't waste your money! W...

Outstanding location. It is an older place but still in good shape. Could use some updating but no problems with bugs as people have commented about on here. Couldn't ask for a more helpful or friendlier staff. Would stay there again.

On a good note, the location is great. It is in walking distance to all attractions and the beach. On a bad note, the room itself was not good. It just gave you a gross feeling to be in the room. the smoke alarm battery was going dead and they came to change it, but were out of batteries so they just took it down. They never came back to fix it. And the bugs... It was summertime when we stayed, so the bugs were in our room and outside of our room. I told the front desk lady and she said they are harmless and it's the season for them. Ugh....different place next time.

After reading some reviews I was nervous about staying here. I have stayed at other hotels in Myrtle Beach and you do get what you pay for. Yes, the hotel needs some updating but the room was clean and the balcony facing the ocean was a nice size. I liked the location as well - just a short walk to the skywheel etc. The office staff was nice as well. I would stay here again.
