Dayton House Resort
Ranked #29 of 209 Hotels in Myrtle Beach
Reviewed 22 January 2014

The location of the Dayton House Resort is solid--right on the beach, just a short walk from the majority of Myrtle Beach's Ocean Blvd strip of arcades and attractions. Unfortunately, the building itself has all the charm of an East German block house. The hallways are dim and a tad spooky, and the exterior of the building has a terrific plainness that stands out from some of the grander hotels surrounding it. Also, there are five buildings total, so finding your way from one place to another can be taxing.

Aside from that, the room itself was very charming, with a nice view of the ocean. I had no issues that needed attending to, and the staff was very welcoming. While it may not be the most upscale place in Myrtle Beach, it was a reasonable price for a great location, and I think that that counts for something.

Room Tip: Make sure to double check for "Ocean View" rooms is you want a... y'know... view of th...

Stayed here for one night "off season" The staff here were very helpful and friendly ... a great location right on the beach a short walk to the sky wheel / boardwalk ... Rooms were very nice, with a balcony and really really comfortable beds.

Comfortable bed and nice beach view. Got low rate from Hotwire so it was worth it. Parking not great...had to walk across street to building. Don't go to the breakfast place they recommend...( uncle johns ) it was really nasty food.

Stayed two nights on drive back from Fla to NY. Decent place for the money. The oceanfront suite had a great view (the 30 degree temp was not great). Very pleasant and courteous staff. Bev at the front desk was great. Forgot to thank her for her service to our country - Thanx Bev!

It's not top shelf, and there was some construction going on, but that's what happens in the off season.

We stayed in ocean front older registration building.. It was updated and totally perfect. So nice that we stayed an extra 3 days. We even called our daughter and had her come down. She stayed in one of the taller/newer building but ours room was as nice and she had side view. Front staff so efficient and welcoming. We needed help with changing the language on our tv and they sent some right up. He is an asset to their organization nice and polite and had it fixed quickly.

Room Tip: Restaurant is within walking distance and you get 10% off. Stay ocean front

Between October and November, we spent seven weeks at The Dayton House. We love walking on the beach, and Dayton House is convenient, comfortable and clean. The staff goes over and above to accommodate all of our needs in a very friendly manner. We've stay there for a good many years, and we always look forward to our return to our home away from home. Thanks for helping to make our retirement years so wonderful!

We have stayed in multiple locations in Myrtle Beach, and this has become a family favorite. Our most recent stay was in the suites or lazy river building for New Year 2013 - 2014. We selected it because of the larger than normal set up for an extended stay with two adults and a 13 year old. For a larger group, this unit may feel still feel small but it should comfortable sleep 4-6, but for a longer stay or with a larger group, I would recommend the ocean view two room suite, which has a separate room with a queen bed.
We love the property because it is safe, quiet, and very family friendly. Parking can be a bit tight if you want to park under the overhang, or in the suites building, (which we do), otherwise you will find plenty of parking across the street, or in the parking deck next to Uncle John’s Restaurant.
As for the rooms, they are a bit old, and built for people smaller than the average person today in both height, and width so you may want to book through the property and ask honest questions about accommodation instead of going through a random online site.
If you are fine with older appliances, and smaller than normal spaces, it is a great property in a quiet spot, 7 blocks north of the boardwalk, (1 mile from the sky wheel), 1.6 miles east of Broadway at the Beach, and 2 miles north of the Family Kingdom Amusement and Water parks. So during peak season, depending on your level of fitness, you can park the car, and walk or bike to most area attractions.

The resort has one indoor only pool in the suits building, and a lap pool that is indoor/outdoor, and a zero entry main pool. Both the main pool and lazy river are in the middle of renovations, so call the resort to confirm when this will be done.

Room Tip: Due to low clearance, large trucks, and SUV's are limited to the ground floor of the Suites buil...
