We stayed here for our last vacation and I have to say I absolutely loved the location. It's away from all the noise and commotion, yet still conveniently located right on Ocean Blvd. The staff were the friendliest we've ran into in Myrtle Beach so far. They were extremely courteous and polite and every employee we passed greeted us. The parking at this resort is the best I've seen. The parking deck is attached to the back of the building so you just drive right up to your floor and park. This made loading/unloading a breeze. And there's always parking because there's a level for each floor. Brilliant!! The elevators are modern, clean, and fast. We had a king suite, which worked perfectly as far as layout. We booked an ocean front partial view room, which turned turned out to be more of an obstructed view. There was another building directly in front of our balcony, so you couldn't see the ocean unless you walked out and peered around the building. These rooms are much more sound proof than other hotels we've visited. That was a definite plus. However, the beds were HORRIBLE!!!! We were in pain the entire trip! They are old spring type mattresses and they are worn out! No support, no comfort at all!! If I could change one thing about this resort it would be the mattresses. The resort offers a kiddie pool area, a splash pool, 3 hot tubs, an indoor pool, lazy river, and an extremely large swimming pool. There's always room to swim and play. That being said, the pool deck is a little on the small side and crowded. We were always having to step aside so people could get by. And there's only a few paths, so if we were on lounge chairs, we were getting bumped by people passing. The ocean access from the hotel is terrific. Child & senior friendly and handicap accessible. There are no stairs to climb to get to or from the beach, just a nice clean ramp. Wonderful! Overall, I would recommend this resort. We would definitely stay here again if the beds were replaced.

My wife and I decided to spend a couple of days with our 2-year-old daughter in Myrtle Beach this August. Since we’d had a good experience at Long Bay a few years ago, we decided to give them another shot. No doubt, this resort lived up to our high expectations.

The location is perfect since it is north of the most congested areas of Myrtle Beach. While still a busy time of year, there was still plenty of space on the beach to leave our beach paraphernalia and for our daughter to play in the sand. As much as we enjoyed the beach, Long Bay’s pool area was a welcome amenity as well. If you have children, it is worth considering Long Bay for this feature alone. The main pool is big enough for an adult to swim in, but never gets deeper than 5 feet, making it easy to hang on to a young one. Within the main pool/sundeck area are the lazy river, poolside bar, and other recreational activities. Another great feature (and I want to say that it’s new, or at least updated, since our previous visit) is the separate children’s area. It is a moderately sized shallow pool (about 1 foot deep) with several water “mushrooms” and other spraying devices, as well as a small submarine that kids could climb through. Since older kids and teens would have no desire or need to be in there, the smaller ones can play at their own speed and not be in the way of anyone wanting to do any real swimming.

Please note that Long Bay isn’t just a kids’ recreation area. It definitely holds its own as a hotel. While the lobby was full of guests checking in when we arrived (approximately 4 pm on a Monday), the three individuals working the front desk were very efficient in getting everyone taken care of. We had a 3rd floor oceanfront suite that was spacious and impeccably clean. The ocean view was unimpeded, making for a nice place to relax mid-day or enjoy an adult beverage after putting our little minion to bed. Although we didn’t have the opportunity to use it, the kitchen was well stocked with various pots, pans and other necessities. The hotel’s main restaurant, Martin’s, offered a good and inexpensive breakfast buffet, which was very convenient when trying to grab a quick bite before hitting the beach. There is also a Starbucks on site as well as a smaller restaurant, the Oceanview Café. I do like the parking garage setup because on most floors, you have the opportunity to park steps from your door. Note that after about 8:00 pm or so, the parking areas on each floor fill up so if you drive to a late meal, there’s a chance you won’t have that spot when you get back. I also recommend confirming with the front desk your need for a crib versus a “Pack ‘n Play” if you are traveling with small children, as there were no cribs available when we checked in.

Overall, I do very strongly recommend Long Bay Resort as a comfortable, economical, and very family-friendly resort. While there are more luxurious resorts on the Grand Strand, Long Bay offers consistent quality and good service. Definitely keep these guys on your short list.

Room Tip: I strongly recommend the oceanfront suites. They're not that expensive, and the view is far sup...

We booked a last minute family trip for August 24th,2014 as an Early 5th B-day for our son. This was our first time booking at this Resort. After booking our trip we decided to try to extend our days. The hotel was booked! But the staff was extremely helpful in helping us make arrangements to add extra days while still staying in our budget. Every staff member we spoke to and dealt with from Reservations, Front Desk, Management, Martin's Restaurant, House Keeping etc. were so nice & accommodating. We were so IMPRESSED with the staff!! ( Brittany was our Fav! ) They truly made us feel special and made our visit Excellent! The location is Excellent! We were so surprised that we were within 5 miles or so from the Pavillion & Broadway at the Beach. But you wouldn't know it. The Resort sits near other resorts and near a residential area. But was not noisy or congested. The resort is close to plenty of restaurants & shopping.The Resort is very Kid Friendly!!! My son did not want to leave and loved being on the 16th floor oceanfront!! Food was good ( restaurant, cafe & Starbucks on site). Beds were good. Resort is older but very clean. Right on the Beach. Nice pool areas w/ Tiki bar. Free Movie Rentals. Arcade. Everything you could want. But we were most impressed by the Awesome staff. We will definitely be visiting Long Bay again!

Room Tip: Loved the Oceanfront View from the 16th Floor!
