“Excellent Stay at Marina Inn at Grande Dunes”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I just returned from an wonderful stay at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. We were promptly greeted and assisted at the door by the bell staff. The entrance is gorgeous and set the atmosphere for the visit. The bellman was most helpful in explaining the layout of the resort and providing insight to the amenities. The suite was beautiful with an awesome view of the waterways. The balcony was large with comfortable furnishing. We had drinks at the poolside bar and Lauren was an awesome attendant. We had lunch at the Anchor Café. The food was great and the service was fast. We had dinner at Waterscapes. The food was locally sourced and delicious.

The only complaint about the entire visit was check-in. Chandra was not very friendly. She did not provide any insight to the resort or it amenities. I was hoping to get her to explain the resort amenities by asking a question about the resort shuttle to the beach which I learned about by reading a flyer on her desk. She abruptly answered my question and did not explain anything else about the resort. Thank goodness I did not let her unprofessionalism taint my view of the resort or the rest of the staff. As I mentioned earlier in the review, the bellman was very helpful in filling in the blanks for us.

Nothing spectacular. The views were great and but the room was not up to my expectations. The carpet was rippled throughout the suite. When I turned on the blow dryer in the master bath, it started spitting out plastic parts. When I advised the staff they seemed not to care and offered no solutions. I feel I waisted money by staying here.

We have inspected your room and I want to thank you for bringing up these details…it is thru observations from you that we can improve the training of our staff. We fell short when our team did not respond and resolve your concerns immediately. Thank you so much for pointing this out. I assure you that your concerns do not fall on deaf ears. We take the feedback of our guests very seriously and will use your input to improve in the areas you described. I wish your experience would have been different but I can assure you that we will work hard to fix those issues that you experienced. Thank you for caring enough to give us your feedback!

My husband and I stayed here for a quick get-away in early April.....we just loved it. The staff were all very friendly and professional. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. We ate in the restaurant once for breakfast....it was pricey, but very good. We had a two bedroom, two bath suite, with a fireplace and a full kitchen and gorgeous views of the water.

It is about 15 min. from Broadway on the Beach and right across the street from the Carolina Opry.

A great hotel.....if we return to Myrtle Beach, we would definitely stay here again, esp. in the cooler months!

Room Tip: I requested a top floor ahead of time for better views

We had a fabulous stay at the Marina Inn. It was by far one of the nicest resorts we have stayed at. The people were all so friendly from the moment we stepped foot on the property. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating we could not have asked for anything else. The room was much larger than we expected and everything was so clean. We will definitely be booking a room again next time we are in Myrtle Beach!

Room Tip: Rooms in Tower 4 have great views of the intercostal water way.

An elegant, 5-star resort with all of the amenities. Well off the strip, perfect for the traveler that wants to stay away from the noisy kids and families enjoying the beach. Quiet and comfortable, I refuse to stay anywhere else for my annual golf trip. Love this place and I cannot recommend the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes enough to anyone considering it. Will definitely be back again.

I normally don't write reviews, but I was so wowed by the Marina Inn, I feel the need to share.

Check-in went smoothly. We were assisted by Skyla, and she was very friendly and efficient. Our room was beautiful, very clean with an upscale feel. The view from our room was breathtaking!! We were in tower 4 with a waterway view. Our balcony was fantastic and had some nice patio furniture to lounge on and watch the boats go by. The infinity pool was very nice and we made full use of the poolside bar/grill--yum! There is a shuttle that goes from the hotel to the beach continuously during the day, and this was quite convenient. The private Marina Inn beach was amazing. Lots of umbrellas and chairs just for Marina Inn guests was very nice since my husband and I had flown in and had no beach stuff with us.

If you are on the fence about the Marina Inn, go for it. You won't be sorry. I did extensive research of all the hotels and resorts in Myrtle Beach, and the Marina inn is by far the nicest. Also, we paid a fraction of what we would have paid at those other places. We are already planning our visit for next year. I can't wait to go back and stay there again!!

Marina Inn at Grande Dunes is an awesome place. Huge rooms that are immaculate. The place is very peaceful and quite. It has a fantastic pool and the shuttle service to the beach is great. You can dine in or just walk over to Ruth Chris. I highly recommend the Marina Inn. We will definitely stay again!!
