“NOT AS PICTURED ON INTERNET”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Room was dark and dingy. Being solo female traveler I was uncomfortable with building being without lobby so anyone could walk in from street and have access to rooms. Also free parking advertised was 1 block away and I would not be comfortable walking to and from car in evening. I refused to stay at this hotel and will be requesting reimbursement of the first night's fee that the hotel charged me. Manager told me that was there standard oceanfront room.

We stayed for Easter break at the Dayton House. We stayed 8 nights in an angle view. We had a great view of the ocean and the street. I debated when booking but the room worked out great. I liked being able to see both views. I would recommend this type of room especially if you would like to save a little money and still see the ocean. The room was a good size, plenty of room for 2 adults and 1 nine year old. The beds were comfortable, of course it could have been more cushiony but not the Marriott, and didn't want to pay Marriott prices. The pools were very nice, enjoyed the the infinity pool, just beautiful. The yella umbrellas were a very nice touch, especially the lawn. Since it was cool we did swim also in the half in/half out pool. I would like to see some pool work done on that pool, some of the side looks somewhat rusty. I can't wait to go back. Room 745 a good room.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Dayton House in Myrtle Beach. After researching hotels in the area using Trip Advisor, I chose the Dayton House because of the positive reviews. Upon arrival, we checked in and went our room, of which the door was open. The front desk agent explained that the locks get stuck sometimes and the repair was simple. Instead of repairing the defective lock he downgraded our room from a king to two queens. When entering our downgraded room, the door would not function and an front desk agent helped us and made sure all was well in the room. After he left, we discovered: a dead bug in the refrigerator, hair on one of the beds, hair on the towels, a malfunctioning toilet, flat pillows, a lumpy, non supportive mattress and a noisy air conditioner which did a horrible job of cooling the room. By the way the front desk agent explained that the envelope on the dresser was a tip envelope for housekeeping - unsure of why this was in the room. When checking out a young lady apologized for the issues. Unfortunatley, this will be the last time that we stay at the Dayton House Resort.

Been there many times and always enjoy the full experience. It has been almost 50yrs of enjoying the hospitality of the family of owners at this super vacation spot. They always remember us and treat us just like family. This spot is perfectly located, has ample parking, and clean rooms plus a fantastic setting right on the ocean. prices are reasonable. Will continue to go there.

Room Tip: All are great

We were scheduled to stay at Camelot Resort in February and had to reschedule to April at Dayton House. Was a little skeptical, but the Ocean view was an Ocean view. We had a view from the master bedroom and a balcony in the living room. Kids slept on a Murphy bed. Our bed was very comfortable. The hotel was quiet. It was great. I wished the Yella Umbrella stayed open later. It would have been nice to have a drink on the beach after 5:00. The parking was a little tight in the garage, but we parked across the street instead of the garage the second night. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: King suite. Plenty of sleeping room for 4.

We were a group of 64 ; Atherton High School Band, director & chaperones who traveled to Myrtle Beach for the Festivals Of Music competition in Aynor. The EFFICIENCY of the groups dept. was AMAZING, specifically I would like to mention Jennifer Weihert , Sales Coordinator. The efficiency we experienced on check in & check out was FLAWLESS & expedient! Everything was ALL ready for us, which was very appreciated due to our late arrival.
We all felt "at home" & every single staff member we encountered was kind, warm & offered us that true "Southern hospitality". I hope this review can also reach ALL departments; housekeeping, front desk operations, sales dept., management, dining room staff at Uncle John's, catering for the box lunches,etc.
You guys are truly a class act. The service here is definitely A+, it was an excellent value & would recommend the Ocean Front Suites which we stayed in. The suites were very spacious, beds were comfortable, new tv's in room, nice clean & updated bathroom. Room decor plain/simple. Resort was very quiet, & this is the BEST part of the beach to stay on with it being spring break... Gorgeous view from our balcony. Ocean FRONT is the way to stay. The lazy river was opened JUST IN TIME to welcome our group. The students & chaperones had a great time! Always felt safe & secure no matter the hour. Much Thanks to all for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Stay Ocean front for the best views!

We spent a much needed night away here, the staff, rooms and service we received while on our stay was excellent as always. This was the fourth time we have stayed here, and each time has been excellent. From now on this will be our first choice when it comes to a trip to the beach. Thanks for being there for us.

Room Tip: haven' t had a bad room yet
