“Awesome Hotel”
Reviewed 11 August 2007

We stayed in an ocean front room at the Best Western Grand Strand for 3 nights in August. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to find a clean, comfortable, peaceful hotel in Myrtle Beach. I would definately pay the extra fee and stay on the beach side. There are only 5 rooms per floor so it's very peaceful (though I wouldn't recommend getting a room on the first floor). The rocking chairs on the balcony are a great touch! The hotel is literally on the beach - it's the closest I've ever stayed to the water at a beach hotel.

The only negatives are that the check in process takes longer than usual and once the front desk person was rather rude. I called to see how to hook up the dvd player and the front desk clerk said, "I don't know how to do it but it can't be all that hard!" The next night I called again and a friendly clerk immediately sent up the maintainance person who quickly fixed it (he needed a special remote control to set it).

When I return to Myrtle Beach in the future, the only hotel I will stay at is the Best Western Grand Strand.

  • Liked — The location and the room decor.
  • Disliked — The rude front desk clerk.

We had a really good stay at this Best Western. The pool area is very nice and it's very clean. The continental breakfast is very good and they add something different each day. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. When we left the hotel, they let us ate breakfast almost if we were earlier then serving time. The maintenance service is also very good, we called them because the battery of the fire alarm needed to be replaced and they came immediately. The only thing to say about the 2 queens with kitchenette, is that the room is a bit small for a family of four. I would not recommend to take an oceanview room because you see the ocean from the main buliding and it's really more expensive on the beachfront buliding. I recommend this hotel !

  • Liked — The proximty of the beach and the pool area
  • Disliked — The size of the room and their was no computer to go on internet

The hotel that my family and I stayed in was the Best Western Grand Strand Inn. The hotel was literally right across from the beach. The hotel staff was courteous, friendly, and most of all knowledgable. The high of our vacation was touring several of the town's attractions such as Myrtle Waves, Nascar Speed Way, Broadway at the Beach and the Ripley's attractions. I must say that our hotel was on the south end of the beach if you are a walker you can walk to the Ripley Attractions (20 short blocks). The cab fair is around $15-20.00 per attraction and after time this can be costly but the attractions listed were the best and the pricing was at an average $26.00 per person over 12 per attraction. The food in Myrtle is good I suggest going to Broadway at the Beach wich has restaurants such as Jimmy Buffets, and the Hard Rock Cafe. Otherwise, one can a pizza, ice cream, corn dog, funnel cake etc from just about any vendor on every corner. The one area of improvment would be SC public transportation it's as if there is a turf war with the cabby's and their winning if you do not own a vehicle or rent a car going to these attraction can be costly. Please note, Myrtle Waves and Nascar Speedway are right in back of one another you can literally walk out of one park and go straight into the other bearing in mind this will be about a 5-10 walk. Phillips Seafood is along wth way and across the highway is Broadway at the Beach. If you are in the mood for a light lunch right across the highway which is relatively safe Wendy's is facing right in front of Myrtle Waves.

We stayed in the Best Western for three nights and had no real complaints about our stay. Our room was in the main hotel across the street from the ocean. Once you were able to get across the street, the beach was great. The hotel staff was friendly and the room while much smaller than we expected was very clean.

We didn't use the kitchen in the room, but I could see it being used if we had stayed a few more days. Very convenient to have a full size fridge to throw leftovers, drinks, etc. in at the end of the day.

We'd stay at the hotel again but would upgrade to the ocean front rooms on the beach rather than deali with walking across the roadway.

  • Liked — Rooms were clean
  • Disliked — No crosswalk to get across busy street to access beach

After reading many good reviews, my Mother, daughter and I decided to stay a night before heading to the airport for our flight home. Bad Decision! Our King room was dark and very noisy due to being on the lower floor .Many people were yelling, and the room itself although clean was run down. I expected better of a Best Western . I suspect that the good reviews may be for the rooms across the street on the ocean. Also, way over priced! They had better motels up the street that looked better, and they were only $50.00 . Don't stay here if your looking for anything better then a run down motel. My 8 year old daughter explained it perfectly by saying the place should be called the worst western not the best!

Waiting time to check in and out---Long. The wireless high speed internet access was non existent. The room was decent though, but a little pricey for what else was available while we were down there.

We are a 3 generational family and this is our 6th visit. We really like the rooms, the friendly staff, the clean pool and lazy river, and the slower pace of this end of Myrtle Beach. We are very close to the ocean and that is nice. We spend 51 weeks each year in eager anticipation of our next vacation week here.
