Long Bay Resort
Ranked #33 of 209 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed 29 November 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Long Bay resort for a quick weekend trip. The rooms were clean. The beds were comfortable, and the staff was nice. This hotel is in a good location north of the city center, but not so far north that Broadway at the Beach was inconvenient to get to. We had a room closer to ocean blvd, but it was still quiet. The pools were nice and there were plenty of lounge chairs. The beach itself was very clean and beautiful.

We have stayed at Long Bay for many years. The rooms are getting an uplift which we all need at times. Everything is clean. Love having the parking garage attached. Staff is always so helpful, friendly and there to please. We are there the week after Christmas every year and this year spent our Thanksgiving at Long Bay. Everything is so handy. Great get away. Can't wait to Christmas.

This was our third time at Long Bay. Every time that we try somewhere else, we always compare it to here. Then we ask ourselves, "why do we stay anywhere else?"

This was a spur of the moment visit over Thanksgiving as plans with family fell through due to a medical emergency. We actually rented a "2 bedroom apartment" this time. It had the same awkward layout of walking into a bedroom from the hallway, the small galley kitchen across from the bathroom (but we have learned to turn this into a plus by using the bathroom sink as an additional food prep area or to store dirty pots and pans while cooking). We cooked an entire Thanksgiving dinner there minus a stuffed bird (used a turkey breast instead) with some ingenuity and it turned out well. Some of the wallpaper was opening at the seams, but all in all the room was nice.

We were hesitant about all the traffic for Black Friday shopping, but we rarely ventured out. Why would we? We didn't come to shop, The internet worked fine instead.
We had a great breakfast buffet at a reasonable price, a wonderful dinner restaurant, and a lunch restaurant onsite that met everyone's needs.

We were afraid that when we saw all the tables were gone in the indoor pool area, that it was going to be elbow to elbow, but it wasn't. With having 3 hot tubs, a separate kiddie area, a lazy river and a good sized pool all indoors, there were only one minor instance of backlog in the lazy river and one instance of high noise level. Also, there were 2 ping pong tables, shuffleboard, checkers and chess indoors to entertain as well. With the outside hot tub, lounge chairs in the sun, a stroll on the beach, to also occupy our time, There is a huge outdoor pool, too, but it was a little too cool for our liking although several people were in it in the afternoons.

We saw many personnel keeping the pool area tidy with an endless supply of clean towels, and reining in those who wanted to swim in the lazy river rather than using a tube. Our room was very clean.

This is a good value and a great place to reconnect as a family without having everyone sitting around endlessly texting, talking on the phone, visiting the internet, or watching TV. There is just too much to do, and the salt water pools are like bath water. Cannot say enough about this place. So why do we ever go anywhere else? Maybe we won't.

We went in off-season as a family and the kids had a blast in the indoor pool(s). So many positives that outweighed any minor negatives. Starbucks on-premises, pools, proximity to ocean, great staff. I needed to print something and they were friendly and accommodated me. Cleaning staff is very receptive as well. The ocean cafe didn't have a lot of selection (we're vegetarians), so go to the hotel next door and there's a lot more to choose from, including margaritas. Would definitely go back again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Don't choose a room that overlooks the condo building on the right.

Long Bay Resort offers comfortable, clean accommodations at an great price (especially during the "off season"). Several room layout options make it very easy to find the perfect fit for your family. The entertainment ammenities are great! The indoor pool, lazy river, kids pool, and hot tubs offer hours of fun all year round. The super-sized chess and checkers games were a hit with the older kids in our group. The staff was friendly and courteous. Check-in and out were fast and easy. Our room was very comfortable. Could use a little up-dating, but nothing that impacted our stay! We will definitely visit again and are already planning a long weekend in January.

We have stayed at the Long Bay since the first year it opened. We've had many types of rooms and experiences; mostly coming off season to get the good room rates. We have found the oceanfront rooms to be noisy, especially at night when the golf groups are partying in the jacuzzi. The backside is noisy with the parking deck. This time we opted for the oceanview room and it is much quieter but does not have any leisure seating. You have to sit on the bed. The best room we've had is the oceanfront condo on the very end in January.

Room Tip: The oceanview rooms do not have a sitting area. But they are very spacious.
