We were at this hotel over the 4th of July weekend. When you first get here, there is no one to tell you where to go. Finally we asked a guest, who told us that we can leave our car down at the ground floor while we go upstairs to the second floor to check in. No one there to help with bags. The rooms where ok, a little dated, but people kept leaving flyers under our door at all times of the day. Felt creepy. The hotel has a sign stating not to use those flyers. How about the hotel have a security guard keeping strangers out?
We paid about $270 a night for this place.They also charge "resort" fees, but not much amenities, not even a small cafe/bar to grab something on the go.
The pools, I think they have 5, where all filled with screaming children from late morning to night, I wish they would have at least one pool designated only for adults. About 90% of the pool chairs had towels on them very early in the morning (though I barely saw people in the pool at that hour), so good luck finding a chair if you get there late morning.
But the worst was the parking situation. On the 4th, we went out in the morning, when we came back a couple hours later, there were no parking spaces left. A lot of cars were parked illegally in the hotel's private parking lot. We circled for a long time then found the last spot available at a different lot a couple blocks away and paid $10 to park there, meanwhile non-guests were parking free in our space. When we called the front desk about this, they told us its the 4th of July, alot of people come to the beach. What? that makes it ok? Not even an apology for the inconvenience. We had reservations to go out for dinner that evening but canceled them because the guy at the parking lot told us we may not find any spaces when we get back. One of the reasons we chose this hotel was for their private parking area. By the way, that night was the only time we saw a security guard.
Maybe this is what Myrtle Beach hotels are like, won't be going back any time soon.
