“Stay at the Country Inns and Suites in Myrtle Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2013 via mobile

This was a fantastic place to stay. While it is about a 10 minute drive to oceanfront, I really liked it. It was very quiet and quite nice and clean.
They had a hot breakfast every morning which was very good also. The employees were so nice and extremely helpful.
We stopped and got a discount book and got a very good rate on it.

This hotel could be great if it had decent staff, but is presently a liability to the quality brand that Carlson have been cultivating, because it significantly deviates in quality and culture from the high standard set by Carlson.

Having stayed at dozens of different Country Inns, I've become very accustomed to them. The staff at this establishment are indifferent to Club Carlson (the brand owner) members, (even if holding their highest status level).

The June 20 Trip Advisor review accurately describes the unfriendly, arrogant hotel staff.

Despite calling ahead to politely enquire whether my request made months earlier for an upgrade was good, I was told there were no rooms available and that the hotel was completely full, but one suite would be provided. Contrary to the "sold out" claim made earlier, a quick search of the internet found at least 3 rooms available.

Upon arrival, the staff member informed us in an unfriendly, arrogant manner that the suite previously promised was not now available. This same staff member who had earlier wrongly claimed they were completely full, also suggested that we cancel the reservation, and made us wait for our rooms until after 3PM.

Shortchanging guests on what they are promised and expect hurts the Carlson brand. For example: no fruit or cookies out, no recognition of status, charging for a rollaway bed, and misleading guests about room availability seems the norm at this sub-par establishment which is located immediately next an X rated "Gentlemen’s Club".

Avoid like the plague...

Room Tip: Be aware of the lack of integrity: Staff who promise may not deliver on room type.

This was a business trip to buy a home in the area so my wife and I had booked a room at a competitor's hotel. That hotel was so bad we had to check out early and had no place to go. We had stayed in a Country Inn & Suites in Pottsville, PA a few weeks earlier and decided to go in cold without a reservation. Lori Beth was on the desk that morning and she helped us right away. She was wonderful, so cordial - it was unexpected. She gave us a great room at a nice price. My wife was so happy, it really made the hotel part of the trip. While the whole stafff was great Lori Beth is a standout employee. We will stay in this hotel chain whenever we can and certainly hope Lori Beth is there when we return to Myrtle Beach.

My wife and I traveled there from Charlotte to take our 6 year old Niece to visit Myrtle Beach since she was down from NY and has never been to this kind of beach. The hotel is well located next to highway 501 and is easy to get on and off the highway. It is right across from Medieval Times as well. The drive time from the hotel to the main areas like Broadway at the Beach or the outlets or the actual beaches was probably about 5-10 mins each way.

The previous posts about the strip club are on point that yes, it is near the hotel and they kind of share a parking lot but not without a divide between them but the privacy bushes and all cover the building very well and also the staff can accommodate requests for backside rooms should you want one. We didn't request one and room # 315 was covered by the main entrance way anyways so even from the bedroom window you could not see anything more then the sign so honestly, I don't think it takes away from anything especially given the fact that its Myrtle Beach.

The staff was great. They were very polite, friendly and quick. They accommodated requests in a timely fashion and at all times of night. During busy times, when they would answer the phone I did observe their phone etiquette (I have worked in customer service in a call center for 10+ years between 2 major companies) and they were spot on even over the phone which a lot of hotels unless it routes you to a reservation center and not the actual hotel most of the time lack because phone customer service is different then in person customer service.

The pool was well maintained and while maybe a little small when you compare it to larger hotels we had no problems and it was very rarely busy.

The hotel is quiet, clean and comfortable in all aspect.

My wife and I will definitely stay there again when we travel back to Myrtle beach especially since its not a horrible drive from the Charlotte area for a nice weekend get away.

Room Tip: If you want a top floor and a blocked view of the strip club, room # 315 was great!

This is my second year staying at this hotel. Rooms are clean. Indoor pool is small but clean and temperature is perfect. Hotel staff, especially Karla, always friendly and helpful. Free breakfast. Only 5 minutes from beach, Broadway at the Beach, mall and other attractions. Will definitely stay here next time We're in Myrtle Beach. No restaurant on site but plenty of places to eat in any price range within 5 minutes a few within walking distance.

We stayed here 4 nights for a baseball tournament and would definitely do it again. Comfortable rooms and very accomodating staff. Breakfast was good, but like anywhere, the earlier you get there the better. The room got full later on, but we found seats. Yes, there is a "gentlemen's club" next door but you don't see it unless you are on the front side of the hotel. Even then, the trees do a good job of hiding it. Definitely never heard it. My 17 year old son missed it, so that will tell you something. Location is good, about 10-15 minutes from the Grand Strand, same to Coastal Carolina/Conway area, and easy to get on and off the highway. Absolutely would stay here again.

My family and I decided to visit Myrtle Beach at the last minute and booked 3 nights stay at Country Inn and Suites. Upon arrival check in was fast and efficient we were greeted with smiles and told to let the staff know if we was in need of anything. We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided one more day would be awesome. Jim was ever so helpful to book us an extra night even though they was almost fully booked. He was very kind and took time out to talk with us everyday and always making sure we had all we needed. Lorie Beth was also awesome as the reviews say she was helpful in suggesting places to visit and eat. She helped book attractions for us and also told us points of interest. Shayne was there one night and was as friendly as everyone else. The maid service and breakfast people always greeted us with smiles and was fast to accommodate us in anyway they could. The hot tub was awesome along with the pool even if it was smaller than some it wasn't crowded when we used it. Towels where kept in the area so no need of packing extra down from the room. The hand painted artwork throughout the Inn gave it so much charm and character. Being from the mountains of KY we felt very much at home and welcomed. The rocking chairs out front was a relaxing spot for us to unwind in the evenings. Excellent job everyone you made our trip wonderful and we feel we made a lot of friends with all of you. Thank you for your hospitality.
