“Don"T Go There....The Owner Will Ruin Your Stay”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

We went to the beach for a family WEDDING. My neice and her family rented a cottage from Sea Cove. The first night there, there was a gang fight in front of the cottage. When my neice complained to the owner she did not even care. Then she constantly screamed at the kids in the pool so they had to play on the beach. Then she fussed about the kids playing in the gravel. Then she called me on my cellphone to scream at my neice about the kids that were at the cottage with there father. She constantly walked her dog around the cottage and we feel that she was spying. My neice informed her that her brother was getting married Saturday on the beach and then would be having a small non alcohol reception at the cottage with some other family that were staying at other hotels for the wedding. She said okay but that visitors could not play in the pool and that visitors could not stay late. All was good or so we thought. We were coming back from the wedding when the owner screamed at my 80 year old crippled mother to get off the property. She was not a tenant and all vistors were to leave immediately. Then to make matters worse, she called 911. Two police officers rode up on bicycles and she instructed them to evict my neice and her family. We did not have time to toast the new bride and groom or even cut the cake. We had to throw away over $200 worth of food in the trash because we had to leave that moment. She single handedly ruined this couples wedding reception. We will NEVER stay there again but will tell all of our friends/family so this never happens to anyone we personally know again.

First of all the owner was completly rude to our family. The service was horiable, our power kept going out, electrian stated the air conditioners were to small for the rooms plus we had to keep empting to water out of the air conditioner, we had to buy a fan just to stay cool, had to request for a phone to be brought to room and they never answered our calls, hardly brought towels to the room, never brought toilet paper, only vacumed one of our rooms 1 time and never vacumed the other, never changed sheets. There were roaches everywhere. The article stated that the hotel had wireless interenet and when I asked about it the owner told me that I would have to go across the street to the restuarant to get online. There were so many problems with one of our rooms that we asked to change rooms and the owner said that it wasn't posable b/c then she'd have to clean the room we were currently in.
The owner nit picked and complained about everything. First she complained about having to vacum a little sand out of the hallways and said that we needed to wash off from the beach..then complained about having to mop up the little bit of water left from rinsing off. NO signs are posted about no refunds, yet the owner refused to give us our money back so we could go to another hotel since we were unsatisfied with the service. She ended up getting us evicted 2 days early b/c we had someone visit us in our room who didn't even stay the night. We paid $1,000 for 2 rooms for 6 nights, and this hotel wasn't worth $100. I will never recomend anyone to stay here.
The only people we saw working at the hotel was the owner and one other woman. They were nosey and constantly trying to check in our rooms. I used red bath wash on a washclothe and they made a comment about having to buy another one. We even offered to take out our own trash out to keep them from looking in our room so much. They would come get the trash, wait a while to bring towels, and the wait even longer to come check on things again.
The balconies are NOT safe for children my daighter could fit right through the cracks. Don't even think about swimming in the pool or you will get yelled at for splashing since there are plants around the pool.
This hotel completly ruined our family vacation and myrtle beach experiance. No wonder we were the only guests that stayed there longer than 1 night. We over heard the owner stateing that she double booked rooms, so we would have to switch rooms or leave.
