Stayed at the Caravelle Tower in July.The staff was VERY friendly and helpful!Loved the location,the suite we had was clean and well appointed.The only negative aspect was the long delays waiting for an elevator.It could be a very time consuming ordeal to get from your room to the beach or parking areas.

I recently visited your hotel on July 25-28th on company business. It was our first trip to Myrlte Beach and was a very nice experience. When we checked in the gentleman was very polite. Our bellhop was very very polite and friendly during the travel to find our room for which he opened the door for us and insured all was ok before he left. We took a quick tour of the facilities and upon arrival back to the 14th floor (marvellous view) we found that unfortunately he had put the room key in his money clip which was magnetized and deactivated the key. Back down 14 floors we went. When we went back to the main lobby, the gentleman at the desk after being told of the mishap for which I was blamed did not hesitate to reactivate the key with a smile and a comment of Not a Problem. The cleaning Staff did an excellent job of keeping our room clean for us. For each trip we made to and from the hotel every employee we met along the way went out of their way to be friendly. We did not have much time to go beachside - maybe next trip. The was by far one of the most pleasant stays at a hotel that we have ever stayed at. Your staff is to be commended for the hospitality and cleanliness of the establishment. If we ever make it back to SC again on personal or business, your hotel will be given the first call.

We stayed at the Caravelle during our trip to Myrtle beach. The hotel has gone through a lot of renovations, but it's still an old hotel. The renovations mainly seemed to include paint and redecorating.

The view is very nice.

There were LOTS of families with children staying here. They had planned daily activities for the kids.

The efficiency condo we stayed in had 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, 2 king beds and a pull out couch.

The kitchen is there, but don't plan to spend a lot of time cooking. The kitchen area is quite cramped and there's no counter space.

Wireless internet is available for a fee, but it is difficult reaching a viable IP address. We were unable to connect over half of the time. However, free wireless access is available downstairs in the coffee/martini bar.

This hotel would be best for a couple or a family of 3. We went with 2 teenage girls and were in need of more space... and another bathroom. :)

If you want to stay at Caravelle, you may consider renting through the VRBO website. You can rent from an owner for a much discounted price.

  • Liked — The view and close proximity to the beach
  • Disliked — Old Cramped space for a family of 5.

My friend's daughter left a bag in the room upon checkout.
Have called several times, no manager will call back
or speak on the phone. I guess they keep your belongings
for themselves. Never stay there again!

This is the second time my family of six stayed at this hotel, the first time was before the renovation and the experience the first and second time was the same. The front desk staff was friendly, the restaurant staff was outstanding and most accommodating, they chef went out of her way to make sure that the kids had what they desired at breakfast even when it wasn't available on the breakfast buffet. The minute we entered the restaurant, we were treated like celebrity, everyone knew who we were. Housekeeping was just amazing, we had the same housekeeper for the duration of our stay and she was just magnificient, she cleaned the room thoroughly each day. The entire trip was both gratifying and satisfying not only for myself but my entire family from shopping at Tanger to eating at Tony Romas at Broadway on the Beach to dinner at Dixie Stampede (they should have the recipe for that cornish hen...it was delicious). We will definitely be going back.

The only drawback is the elevator service, the wait was long but then again we were never in a hurry so we didn't mind that much but the kids got a bit ancy. Overall, we were satisfied and would recommend this hotel to our friends and family. The kids are still talking about how special they were treated by chef Judy and the crew at the restaurant.

This was my first trip to Myrtle Beach. My guy took me for a long weekend. I booked this room online and though he'd been to Myrtle Beach several times in the past he wasn't sure about this place. It's a little north of the main area (old pavillion area) so it's just out of walking distance. But we really lucked out. It was a very clean oceanfront efficiency. Flat screen tv, DVD player - not that we were around to watch it much. Full kitchen with all you need except food. We had plenty of privacy even with several families staying in rooms nearby. Nice for couples. Nightlife in area is good too! We would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — Comfortable and clean, updated
  • Disliked — Going home
