Great room with great views! Very clean and comfortable; a home away from home. Staff was great! We had rm 809 and it has been the best hotel experience we've had in a very long time.

Room Tip: The corner suites will not disappoint anyone!

Just stayed at the Forest Dunes for a baseball tournament!! We had room 607 and loved it!! It was not too high up for those in our party that were afraid of heights but had an incredible view of the ocean, beach, sunrise and sunset!! We could also view the pool, lazy river and hot tub from our room. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. The beds were great close to the small bathroom and then another full bathroom down the hall. A great well stocked kitchen with breakfast bar, living room with recliner rocker, pull out sofa and arm chair well placed to view out the floor to ceiling patio door windows at the beach! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The restaurant onsite is called Buckets and had friendly staff, delicious food and well priced. I had the philly cheese sandwich with fries and loved it!! Would definitely bring my family back here! We also loved the quiet beach that we had and the close approximity to drive to downtown, the boardwalk, restaurants, shopping and attractions!

We stayed at Forest Dunes the last 3 years and have stayed in 2 different units. 1105 was where we were the first year we came and the ocean view from the balcony was breathtaking. The condo itself was very nice and the furniture and decor were gorgeous. We requested it the second year but were unable to get it and were put in room 510 which is an oceanfront unit. Wow, had they done a lot!! Unit 510 is really updated and has all the amenities and comforts of home including a big HD flatscreen and a King size bed in the Master Bedroom.
All leather furniture including a rocker recliner were soooo nice!
We were able to stay in 510 again this year and are so happy with the vacation we had!!
We are very happy with our stay at Forest Dunes year after year.
We enjoy the lazy river and indoor/outdoor pools and the hot tub is extremely relaxing.
The resort is clean and the staff are very friendly.
Right on the beach with a small service road between the resort and the beach, just far away enough from the downtown core that you avoid all the noise and craziness but close enough that if that's what you want, it's right down the beach.

We'll be back next year!!! Looking forward to 2012.

Room Tip: 1105 or 510!!

Room 1701. Great value, big sq'footage, loads of room, fantastic view and great balcony. Outside there was a lazy river & outdoor pool that seemed to be heated but indoor pool a bit cool (could be heated!!). Whirlpool nice & 103 degrees and pools cleaned every morning. Across a small street from the beach easy access to beach, no troubles getting there and there are showers/hoses to clean everything off before you come back to resort. The lobby was clean & nice but our unit was well used.........it needs a facelift very badly!! I woudn't wear barefeet or socks on carpets, only slippers constantly....the carpet was very stained. The cabinets in bathrooms/kitchen falling apart!!! Closet doors falling apart, dryer does not dry! All walls needed painted, baseboards were falling apart too. All of it needed to be replaced & renovated. Although the appliances were newer & clean, the housekeepers were friendly and helpful. the place seemed clean though, just very very used! Dissappointed there was no recycling at the resort!!!!!!! So we had 3 bedroms and 3 baths, the master had a walk-in closet that we used as a nursery (fantastic!!) and then a queen bedroom and two twins in a bedroom. Couldn't ask for more space.

I reserved a deluxe one bedroom oceanfront suite the third week of August. Talk about disappointing......first - the motel is not on the ocean side of the street - luckily my room was up high enough where I could have a nice view from the balcony. The first day we went out for the day - had the A/C on 72 - came back to our room and the temperature was 89. I was told that it was because of the vertical blinds in the living which weren't helping with the heat from the sun. Luckily the room had a box fan for our use - so if you enjoy listening to a fan all day and nite and keeping the blinds shut on your panoramic view - this wouldn't bother you. Also - went to take a shower and the shower curtain and tub were disgusting - mildew all over the shower curtain and dirt stains in the tub. Oh yeah - went to the grocery store to buy food - came back - nowhere to put anything in the cabinets because they were full of the owner's stuff. Mentioned to the lady when I checked out about how disappointed I was with the room being so hot and not on the ocean - don't think she really cared. They only have two elevators to serve people in over 180 rooms - very slow - so don't be in a hurry. WILL NEVER STAY HERE OR RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE.

Thank you for your constructive comments regarding your stay in August. While it appears you do not intend to return, you will always be welcomed back if you change your mind. Forest Dunes Resort offers exceptional value. While we are across the street from the beach we are considered Ocean Front since there are no buildings between us and the ocean. Guests tend to prefer our location because it is less crowded and the street is not busy. We are located in the quaint Cabana section of Myrtle Beach, also referred to as the Golden Mile. It appears that your air conditioning issue was resolved since you only mention having a problem that first day and we’ve had no complaints since. This condo is in excellent condition and the air conditioning unit is new. Nonetheless, we always recommend keeping the blinds shut for a couple of hours during the hot afternoon sun if you are not in the room. Yours is the only air conditioning complaint on record for this condo for the entire season. Our records indicate no other issues concerning the tub and cabinets were reported during your stay. We take our guest requests very seriously and strive to handle them in a timely manner. We are sorry your stay was not more enjoyable and hope for the opportunity to earn your business again in the future.

After driving 15 hours to get to Myrtle beach, we arrived at Forest Dunes to see when we could check in. I gave them my number and they said they would call as soon as it was ready but told us to enjoy the amenities (beach, pool etc.) So we decided to go to the pool.. Awhile after we had been swimming they called to let us know that our room was ready. WE had watched a show on tv called bed bug apocolypse and we decided we needed to check the beds before taking any of our belongings up to the room. So we went up to room 902 and started to check the beds and found bed bugs on BOTH beds! I went out into the hallway as housekeeping was out there and I told them what we had found so they came in and looked and they were very grossed out. They then called management and we waited for 3 ladies to arrive on the 9th floor. I went back into the room with them and told them where I saw them and they went over to the beds and seen them (they were mainly around the zipper part of the bed bug cover) They were immeadiatley grossed out and saying "that's it" and the one lady said that she had to get them off of the beds so she went and got a cup and put them in it. The staff was very courteous and offered us another room (802) which we decided not to take only because we didn't want to deal with it and have to look through another room! If you have ever seen any shows on bed bugs then you know what a pest they are! they did let us shower in room 802 and then we left. Since our room was rented through a private owner they couldn't refund our money. We did end up getting our money back for this room and will absolutely NOT return to Forest Dunes again! I have a feeling that this place is only going to worse.. BEWARE OF ROOM 902 and check your entire matress AND boxspring when you are staying somewhere!! I am so thankful that we did! We were in our car for about 72 hours but it sure beats staying in a place with bed bugs!!

Room Tip: I would avoid Forest Dunes all together! Bed bugs spread like wild fire and are very hard to get rid...

The Management and staff of Forest Dunes would like to begin by apologizing for the inconvenience that you endured during your short stay at our resort. We would also like to take a moment to address your concerns. First and foremost please know that we have strict quality control standards that are meant to prevent an unacceptable situation like bedbugs from occurring. Unfortunately it is impossible to completely prevent this situation due to the nature of our business. Bedbug incidents at Forest Dunes are so rare that we've experienced only a couple incidents throughout a period of twenty-five years. We do however go to great lengths to prevent it from happening in the first place. A couple reasons for our success are extensive staff training and taking pro-active steps like putting bed bug covers on all mattresses. Where pests are found the condo is immediately quarantined and treated by licensed professionals with a combination of heat and chemicals to eradicate any bugs or eggs. All surrounding rooms are also inspected to ascertain that the bugs have not spread. In this situation our professionals have determined the bugs did not spread and were effectively and promptly eradicated. I know it is a major inconvenience for any guest to have to deal with, and we apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Thank you for reporting the problem immediately and we hope to see you again in the future.
