“Excellent... Kudos all around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

First and foremost you can get an excellent rate on priceline, much cheaper than the rack rates. Front desk staff was awesome, very friendly and helpful, if i could remember the ladies name that checked us in i would put it on here, but my memory is slipping me...

We got a west side efficiency, although it is across the street the room was very spacious, and if you look out the side of your balcony you can see the ocean, so save some $$$ and check out these rooms. Beds were probably the softest we've slept in, kitchenette had everything you needed. Loved it had an actual kitchen table, not a small desk, etc, so cooking in the room is an affordable option.

This resort has awesome amenities, Lazy river, indoor/outdoor pools and several spas -- plenty for everyone to enjoy. Definitely will recommend, and definitely will return... Kudos all around!

Room Tip: Save some $$$ look into the west side efficiencies! Across the street with a side view! ALSO check p...

Hotel was on oceanfront, had a full kitchen and friendly available staff. We stayed for 3 nights and were very happy. We could walk to the boardwalk and we were located across from a very affordable diner which served excellent breakfast. The hotel has plenty of tables with yellow umbrellas at the beach for their guests to enjoy along with pools for when the ocean gets too rough..

Rooms were quite large with a small, dated, but adequate kitchen. The place is older, but I think most are on the beach. Having carpet in the room is a little gross IMO, especially with all the sand likely to be brought in. Great value, pools were nice & clean.

My husband, 7 month old baby and I stayed here from 5/29 to 6/1 we got the ocean front efficiency with 2 queen beds. The room was very nice especially for the great price that we got the room for. The kitchenette was well kept and nice and clean and offered all needed utensils. We had a dining room table which was great and the room had several chairs and benches for sitting which was nice. The beds were very comfortable only thing that I didn't care for was the sheet on one of the beds had a hole in it which was right in the center and couldn't be missed. The bathroom sink is outside of the bathroom which offered the usual soap, shampoo and lotion. The balcony was a nice size and clean and had an amazing view of the ocean. The bathroom was the downfall of the room it was small and the shower had mold in the corners and the curtain was dirty. If the bathroom got scrubbed down then the room would be excellent. The property was fantastic we used every pool and the water was nice and warm and pools were well kept. The yellow umbrella area was also a nice treat and was nice sit back and relax. The outside bar was also a nice and being right next to the jacuzzi made it even better and it was nice to be able to charge the drinks to our room instead of carrying cash. The beach access was also fabulous it is so close. The one thing that I did not like about the hotel was the parking we stayed in the north tower and there is only a few spots under the building and the lots across the street were always full were we had to park very far and carrying a baby made it a little rough. Also if you eat at uncle johns across the street they give you 10% off for staying here and will even charge it to your room if you want. We will stay again if ever in the area again.

We just arrived to Myrtle Beach. We came in during the crunch check-in time. Upon entering the office, I was greeted warmly by the front desk staff. My check-in process took less than 5 minutes. The staff was extremely competent and friendly. They offered great restaurant tips and gave me a complete overview of the area and of the resort. There are 5 buildings that comprise the resort so it would be easy to get lost. We provided us with a property map and guided me through where everything was located. We were super anxious to get to the beach as it was a beautiful day. There were plenty of bellman carts to use during our unloading process. Our room was a bit narrower than we expected, however, it was clean and well maintained. We have a side view efficiency room with 2 queen beds. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and we are right by the largest pool. We changed, loaded our food and drinks into the full size refrigerator, grabbed our towels and headed for the beach. There are 3 pool areas. There is a large zero entry pool directly facing the ocean, a lazy river and an indoor/outdoor pool, all are saltwater. There are also 2 large hot tubs, also facing the ocean. There are walkways directly to the beach along with a VERY large seating area equipped with picnic tables with umbrellas and chairs and ample chaise lounge chairs. This grassy area is between the pools and the sand. There is also a snack bar in between the large pool and the lazy river. The resort looks a little older from the outside but it is very well maintained. During peak season, all guests are required to have a wristband to utilize the pools and they actually have staff patrolling to ensure that only guests use the pools/beach area, all extremely friendly and polite. Overall, we have been pleasantly surprised!

Room Tip: We are in the middle building with a side view. We can see the ocean from our balcony with no proble...

This was our second stay at the Dayton House, with the very attentive staff, clean rooms and well maintained pool area, you couldn't ask for anything more. The addition of the snack bar is a great feature. We are all ready making plans for our next visit

Room Tip: ocean frront has best view of pool areas

Went to Myrtle beach on the long Victoria wknd in May. Had checked out trip advisor on top places to stay. Dayton House was on the list. We checked out the reviews, and found that 90% of guest that stayed there, were pleased. It was pretty well what everyone else had stated. Clean..very close to everything. We did not have a car, so location was important. we walked everywhere. and didnt matter what time of the day or evening that we ventured out, it was very safe. Last year we stayed further up Ocean blv, and it was not safe to walk at night. We were close to the Skywheel...Broadway onthe beach was a $5.00 cab ride. Close to so many restaurants and shops..Fantastic. Dayton House like I mentioned was very clean, but alittle outdated. There was always chairs to sit down on at the pool area and grass area. The staff was extreamly helpful, always smiling. We were on the 4th floor on an angle view room. great because we got to see the Ocean as well as the blv. we went down on "Harley bike wk". No issues at all, great,polite, no problems. and didnt hear anynoise after 11:00pm. So if your looking for an affordable place, clean, family oriented, and within walking distance to Shop and restaurants, then look no further then Dayton House. Hope this review helps you with your decision.
