“Great place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

The room was nice and had everything we needed. There is a grill out back where we cooked most of the time and never had to wait to use it. It is a smaller "club" but everyone we came into contact with was nice and friendly including the staff. The pools were well taken care of and the property was clean. I enjoyed the stay with friends and it is very close to broadway at the beach, and short distance to the boardwalk. If you have children it is a great place to bring kids as well, children of different age groups were there and always seemed to play well with each other at the pool. Clean rooms and a great atmosphere, this place beats a lot of other places in Myrtle Beach. Take advantage of the things they have to offer that week for example, they offered facials, a foot detox and activities for children and a very low cost. So you don't have to leave the resort and spend an arm and a leg to keep the children occupied.

We have stayed here several times over the years. This visit was no different, always nice friendly staff and quiet atmosphere. It is an older establishment but everything is clean and in order. Lots of tables and chairs by the pool which I especially like. Activities throughout the week if you get tired of the pool and beach. I plan on returning again next year.

We stayed in unit C21 it was very clean and had everything we needed for the week. It is a small older beachfront resort not a lot of bells and whistles but beautiful beach and 2 swimming pools. Staff very helpful got us in by noon the day of arrival. We loved it and would stay again!!!

I want to thank all the staff for a wonderful vacation this past May. We could not have been treated nicer nor could we have asked for a cleaner place. The beach weather was even great! I do want to thank Ms. Brenda King also for the help in upgrading our condo. If I had ruby red slippers, I'd be clicking my heels right now....."No place like Riptide...." Thank you all again for a great vacation!

we stayed here at the beginning of May for the weekend and left the following sunday, the room was beautiful and the view from our balcony was amazing! we had a few issues with our ac unit not cooling like it was supposed to but with a quick call to the front desk a young maintenance man was promptly there to fix the problem within ten minutes of making the call, he was a very nice young man (i believe his name was Mike or Mikey) but the problem was resolved very quickly upon checking in. the pools were very clean, not very big..but no big deal. they even have grills outside that they provide with propane! I would recommend this place to anyone staying on the north end of Myrtle Beach!

Great location close to activities and restaurants. Resort staff is geared to make your vacation special regardless of the weather. A small comfy resort continually renovating and renewing to serve us better. Canadian snowbirds survived the winter of 2014 here. Extra thought was given to guests during the many winter vortexes that hit the area. Snow on the beach was a novelty.
Sunning on our ocean front balcony was a treat. The activities director kept us informed and had many things for us to do. Not many resorts of this size have an activities director in the off season.

Our daughter is a freshman at Coastal Carolina University, so we’ve been to Myrtle Beach for several short trips during the last two years. This time we stayed for the week of our younger kids’ spring break and booked a week through RCI at the Riptide. Because we stayed during Passover, we had to have a unit with a kitchenette and when I checked in, I made a point of saying how important a working kitchen would be to our visit. I was a little nervous about the Riptide because of some of the reviews I read before our trip, but was so happy with our choice. Although our third floor unit was a little small for four (my teen-aged sons had to share a fold-out sofa in the living room and we all shared one bathroom), the bedroom opened to an ocean-front balcony and we listened to the waves all night. Each day, housekeeping came by with new bath towels, dish towels, and other supplies for the condo, and on Tuesday you can have your whole unit cleaned by signing up before 9:00 a.m. I sheepishly signed up at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning, which was no problem for the cheerful staff.

Because it was either too cold or raining, we only had one decent beach day, but there were so many other things to keep us busy, and there was only one morning too wet to take an early walk on the beach. The best thing about the Riptide is its location right on the shore. It is an older hotel but really well-maintained and very clean. We didn’t see any of the housekeeping issues others complained about in older reviews, and the entire staff was really friendly and good-natured. I was able to make several meals in the kitchenette, which had a four-burner stove and a small oven. The only extra kitchen tool we had to buy was a set of measuring spoons. The worst thing about this venue is the parking garage. Now, every hotel—at least the smaller ones—has a garage or lot across the street instead of onsite, but this garage has up and down ramps that are like tiny narrow tunnels, and especially if you have a larger car or van, it’s very disconcerting to go up and down those ramps. There are marks all over the walls of the ramps where some vehicles obviously didn’t clear the walls, but there was plenty of parking if you didn’t mind climbing to the top of that scary garage. One other note is, this is the farthest we’ve ever stayed from the pier and entertainment section of Myrtle Beach, but my boys didn’t seem to mind and we spent more time at Broadway on the Beach and Barefoot Landing than ever before, probably due to the weather. We really enjoyed our visit and would probably stay at the Riptide again.

Room Tip: Almost every room that I was aware of had a bedroom with an ocean view. We were in Building B, whic...
