“Nice Resort”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We stayed at this resort because of a timeshare sampler package that we purchased. Booking a stay here was very difficult. Upon arriving we were placed on the 6th floor right by the pool. This location was very noisy due to the loud music playing as well as the pool foot traffic. Next we were moved to the 9th floor which was a lot better and quieter. We had a partial view of the ocean, which was nice. Our 2 bedroom joined rooms was cool. The suite was clean and somewhat spacious. The parking spots were very small and tight. The suites/rooms did not have wi-fi. Beach access was across the street. Overall the resort was decent.

Pros:
*Close to the beach, guests get to use amenities of the Best Western which is beach front and sits in front of the Carolina Grande. (Best Western has beach access, fitness room, pool)
*Outdoor pool
*Balcony was great! (We were on 12th floor and had a view of the pool below us and an acceptable view of ocean)
*Coffee offered to guests during certain morning hours
*Somewhat spacious room
*Beds were clean
*Washer/dryer in room

Cons:
*Bathrooms were not very clean
*Parking spaces are very small and tight
*Elevators are extremely slow. There are 2 elevators which does not seem to be enough for the size of the building. Had to wait several minutes up to 10 minutes when waiting to leave your floor.
*No fitness room at this location. You have to walk across to Best Western to use theirs.

Don’t waste your money; you can do better. This is not a waterfront property. It’s a 20 story hotel across the street from the beachfront properties and directly behind the Best Western, another 20 story hotel. The result is no realistic beach view. There are plenty of rooms in Myrtle Beach for a much better price that are right on the water. If you do stay here, one trick you need to know: after you book your room, call the hotel directly and put in a request for an upper level floor. Otherwise you’ll be stuck right behind the 6th floor pool and no beach view whatsoever. Our room was clean but nothing special. No wireless internet (you can have wireless access for 15 minutes in the lobby). The bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly. That’s about all we can say. Needless to say, would not come back.

This was our 1st visit to Carolina Grande & it was very enjoyable. We are Bluegreen owners but our rating is not biased in any way. Check-in staff was very professional, curteous & helpful with directing us to nearby stores for grocery shopping. Rooms (2 bd combined) were very clean. We stayed on 20th floor, corner unit next to mini golf & had good view of ocean across the street. House keeping & ammenities were fine, no complaints. Shower head puts out a very good spray (which you don't find in lots of places) & plenty of hot water. All staff was very friendly. Wish the pool/hot tub area was bigger but also had use of pool, hot tub & lazy river across street at Best Western Carolinian. Pool towels were furnished, very nice & thick. The pool towel bags in both rooms had small tear on side but was not an issue for us since I had brought my own (just in case). Walk to beach was short, across the street so no issue with that. We plan to go back in the future & hope to stay at Carolina Grande again,

Room Tip: Higher floors have good views & corner/end units have less noise.

Stayed in a one bedroom condo in August for 3 days. Nice room. Good location. The pool on the 6th floor is private and neat. You have access to the pool and lazy river at the resort ocean front across the street. Not my favorite place to stay in Myrtle, but all and all it worked out for our trip.

This is litterly the best place ive ever stayed and i go every year. The resort is great even though the pool isnt that big. But they let you swim at the best western across the street which has a very nice pool and lazy river. The resorts location is odd when your driving it looks like its in the middle of the street. Its beach front but like not,
you have to walk across the street but its not a big deal because you can still see the beautiful ocean. The room we get is 3 bedroom and they take your requst seriously as they told us ahead of time we would be on the 14th floor. We requsted to be on the top floor the 20th floor and thats where we stayed. The rooms are veryy veryy clean and i have never had a problem with anything. A plus was the in room washer/dryer to clean all your sandy clothes. It is a time share so when i see people complain im like well it is a time share if you dont want in dont stay. Staff is veryy nice. You can rent boogie boards for 5$ a day which isnt that bad. They have a meeting you can go to and get 100$ card to use anywhere just to go but its not required. Over all i would recomend this place to anyone. This place very nice and family friendly amd beyond perfection

My family stayed here from July 9-13th in a one bedroom/one bath. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The complex is across the street from the beach with partial ocean front views. For our family, the size of the condo was somewhat cramped. I wouldn't want to spend a week here. but for several nights it was fine. As always with Bluegreen properties, it was clean and included a supply of towels, washer/dryer and fully stocked kitchen. The complex itself only has a rooftop pool and hot tub, but you have access to the facilities at the Best Western across the street which includes an outdoor covered pool and small lazy river. Without them, my kids would have not had much to do on our beach day when it was pouring.

Overall, we liked the Carolina Grande and were happy with our stay. If we came back again, we'd try to stay in one of the three bedroom units.
