“On a budget? Don't fall for Wave Rider!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

As a couple on our first vacation we were looking for a good price. But you get what you pay for! My boyfriend booked the room before reading reviews (I will be booking further vacations-lol). After reading the reviews we had no idea what we would walk into. We booked thru booking.com/MBRooms for Rent. The room was just not something I would call even a motel. No phone, dirty dishes, no alarm clock, roaches were there but luckily only saw one outside and one in the room out last night. We did not sleep on the stained sheets or use the stained towels. For what we got $100+ a night, was not what we should have spent. The ONLY good thing is that the beach is right across the street. The room was just dated and dirty, but we had a place to stay so I guess we can't be too ungrateful. We were required to take our own trash out to a cart in the back... Weird. Hotel cleaning services in every hotel I have ever stayed in have "cleaned the room" after your stay. Basically the room looked exactly like we walked into because I can now guess that they have you do these things so they don't have to. If you are on a budget, just look elsewhere. It's not worth the bugs and dirty rooms.

We rented our room from the Wave Rider/ Myrtle Beach rooms for rent. Our stay was at the Palace and the room was terrible. The description said the kitchen was equipped to serve four people and fully equipped. There were barely enough dishes for two people and the can opener was broken. I called the desk at the Wave Rider but they weren't very concerned. They did finally have someone bring another can opener but it was broken as well. The room was very outdated and could use a deep cleaning. We will never stay here again.

Asked to speak with manger he would not speak with me my stay was to be Monday through Thursday had to leave my vacation early because temperature out side was in the high 90's air conditioner not work. Room was very dirty had food in microwave and dry food on dishes toilet was broken toilet paper roll was dirty . Had to keep shoes on at all times are floors would turn feet black. Try to get staff to come up to room to see the issues however the only thing they did was send a child who was rude up to room hours late with a fan . When I seem the bugs I couldn't stay any longer the owners NEED to get new staff and a manager that cares.Will not ever book. A room online again . Please run from this place it looks nothing like the pictures

Room Tip: Run away from this place as fast as you can

Stayed for a few days with my kids on our first vacation. The room seemed better than the exterior. The elevator didn't work and the key was straight out of the 50s. We spent as little time as possible there since the tv was snowy, the beds were rock hard, and the bathroom was very dirty (light bulbs out, water damaged sinks and cabinet that the clean towels were placed in). Considering how much I paid online, I was very disappointed. We made do by spending all of our time away. On our third day, 3 out of 4 of us were exhibiting strange clusters/lines of bug bites all over our bodies. We immediately checked out for fear all we brought with us was infested. The amount of effort I went through to make sure everything that entered my house back home was washed in HOT water or simply thrown out was not worth the money and the stress I'm still dealing with. If I find I brought the infestation home, I will be revising my review with an update.

When we got there it looked gross, and after a few hours we noticed Bugs behind the mirror...two/three roaches. We called the emergency number and got a different room. The second room was a little better but we got our money back for the rest of the week and quickly ran out of that place. It was overall disgusting.

For being a last minute booking they were able to work with us. As far as the hotel, on the third night we saw bugs. When we got there, there was no phone, ice machine or blow dryer. The 2 good things about the resort were, they had a pool, which was nice, and they had a kitchen. Oh yeah and another thing, they were across the street from the beach.
