“Not what we expected. Poor quality beds”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Booked Mother Daughter weekend for April 26-27. I was running in a 5K and wanted to book a nice place on the beach. We had been looking forward to this for months. I saw the beautiful pictures on the website and decided on Seawatch. When we arrived we asked for a upper floor on the north tower (suggested by reviews). After getting our room number we asked if this was one of the updated rooms and was told "um..sure it is". We were on the 16th floor North Tower. When we walked in the bedroom was dark with outdated furniture and decor including a 1970's looking very worn orange comforter 2 cheap pillows. The kitchen and bathrooms had obviously not been updated as well in many years. We called downstairs and requested an updated room and were given another on the 10th floor. The view of the ocean was great but same bed and dark outdated bedroom. I called downstairs again and asked if there were any rooms with better beds and was told no. I then said that these rooms looked much different than the website and if this was the best quality of bed we could find we would not choose this location again. The representative told us "okay". The pool area was nice but no bathrooms around. Lots of kids and there was some garbage around the hot tubs but overall nice pools and nice tiki hut (great bar tender and mango margarita). We didn't see any pool towels so we had to use our beach towels both days. The drinks are a little pricey so if you are going to give this place a shot I would suggest bringing some of your own alcohol on the trip. The restaurant didn't have any seafood other than fried stuff so we ventured out for all of our meals. They are missing a golden opportunity here with the menu but that’s another story. The beach had trash on it and no option for chair or umbrella rental. We made the best of our weekend but overall I think this place is much more interested in selling timeshare condos than the upkeep of the hotel. I would not recommend it. for the price you can find a nice 3.5 to 4 star with friendly front desk customer service, quality beds and cleaner rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for a recently updated room upon check in and ask to see the room before you haul all of your su...

Booked for April 24 - 27 ocean view on my 43rd wedding anniversary. My wife and I needed to get a restful weekend and I was not disappointed. We found very clean facilities, connected parking garage, friendly staff. I'm out of bed every morning by 5 am and from my room I could watch the staff cleaning the pool areas including the hot tubs, and ramps leading to the beach, and they were not rushed. Small details were attended to with great care. Maybe the one thing I notice to be negative was the slow check in and out due to the computer speed. Very slow for this day and age. The hotel is somewhat off from the main strips, but close enough to any type of service you may desire. We did not eat on the premise although our room had a kitchen which provided glass and silverware and almost anything you might need including a cork screw which we did use. Some areas of the garage did not have enough light in my opinion. The beach area was much better than other areas along this massive ocean front, but I really miss the board walk. Overall Great

The Sea Watch met our needs for a a nice 3 day getaway. The pool set up is great for kids and adults and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The view from our room was very good as well. The rooms are a bit out dated and small. The cleanliness of the bathroom could have been a little better. Overall I think we would definitely give Sea Watch another try on our next Myrtle Beach getaway....

Great place to stay. It was a bit of a mess on 501 and 17 in some places, but otherwise the resort was great and we enjoyed the stay. Wal-Mart around the corner, plenty of places to eat and lots to do. Check for discounts with every place you go. If you ask about them, they will give them to you.

We were excited to be staying here - what a letdown. Pools were dirty, lazy river is very small, no place to eat lunch or dinner on site. Room was comfortable but had daily maintenance issues and extremely noisy! No sleep for 2 nights due to the noise. . Calling front desk took at least 12 rings to answer every time - talking to them they could care less about issues. Management unavailable and no follow up. Internet was slow. Only good thing was the breakfast. Pools are heated but still cold. A lot of hype and great pics on the website but not what it's cracked up to be for the $$$. Definitely won't stay again.

Room Tip: We were in north tower and it was noisy from wind, ice machine and kids running up and down the hall...

As always we had a great time at the Sea Watch. Although some rooms need updating, it is always clean and bug free. It's one of my families favorite places to go in the U.S. We always get a room facing the water.

We have been using this resort for several years now. Facilities, grounds, amenities and food service are very good. Staff are all friendly and helpful. The studio units are under maintained and overpriced! Don't waste your money; get a one bedroom unit. Convenient to food and shopping, too
