“Travelling with a service animal? Stay away!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Called this afternoon to book a 10 day stay. As a courtesy (because legally I do not have to inform them) at the end of the reservation I let the staff know that we are traveling with a service dog. The staff member denied the reservation. I suppose that Carolina Winds is above the law... Thankfully there are other wonderful resorts in Myrtle Beach that do not discriminate against people with disabilities and I will happily take my business there.

Stayed March 2014, travelled with family

CWRManager, Manager at Carolina Winds, responded to this review, 4 March 2014
We would like to apologize for the miscommunication that took place when you last spoke with one of the members of our staff. While we are not a pet-friendly property, we are compliant with the law and allow guests who have service animals to stay with us. This was our mistake and we would like to apologize to you personally. Our General Manager, John Wendell Smith has called and left you a voicemail. Please contact him at your earliest convenience at (843) 449-2477, extension 1307. We hope that we can rectify the situation, and we hope that we can still have you as our guest at Carolina Winds. Thank you!

We've stayed at the Carolina Winds twice in the last three years and plan to return this spring. In November 2013 we rented a sixth floor, three bedroom, two bath oceanfront center condo. The unit was nicely decorated and clean, but most importantly it was comfortable! Our first stay was February 2011 and we were in a north oceanfront three bedroom, two bath condo that had more of a beach themed decor, it too was clean and comfortable.

The location is great because it's quiet and not crowded. The only complaint our teenaged children had was that the indoor pool wasn't deeper but that fact didn't keep them from enjoying it for hours.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Georgana and Lynn both offered tips and information to make our stay more enjoyable. Coming and going we were always greeted with a smile.

I have stayed at CW since 1996. It is a wonderful location and once you get used to staying on the beach with access to indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi, and exercise room, nothing else will do. My favorite place.

My Family and I have been staying at Carolina Winds for over 5 years when ever possible. The resort is wonderful. The location is excellent. The rooms are great. The staff have always been very helpful. I really like the fact that the rooms are very quiet and roomy. My husband likes have a tv that he can watch games on and I can veg out with Life time in the bedroom. The hotel is close to great eating establishments and shopping. The property is clean and it is easy to walk to get ice cream or just look around the beach shops. We love staying at Carolina Winds in the Summer but even more in the Winter months. I have stayed in alot of hotels in Myrtle Beach but Carolina Winds is ALways my first choice.

Room Tip: We like the higher rooms because the veiw is amazing. I have never had a bad room.

This was our first time staying at Carolina Winds Resort in Myrtle Beach, SC. Overall, we had a nice stay in our room, # 709. There were a few small maintenance issues that could be attended to, but other than that, the room was clean and comfortable.

Once again I visited Myrtle Beach in October and stayed at Carolina Winds. Carolina Winds is one of the gems of the Myrtle Beach area especially when you consider their convenient location, ease of parking, access to the beach and price!! I also love that they have 2 speedy elevators and I did not have to wait any time. I look forward to returning again plus recommending it to my friends.

Room Tip: I love staying in one of the condos on a higher floor because of the view!!

Once again we visited Myrtle Beach in November and stayed at Carolina Winds. On our last stay, we noted a complacency among the staff and that our unit was "tired." This visit the staff was friendlier and our unit was cute and recently refurbished. Judging by the number of maintenance staff we saw, the management is committed to keeping this property well maintained.

Carolina Winds is one of the gems of the Myrtle Beach area especially when you consider their convenient location, ease of parking, access to the beach and price!!

We will keep on returning again and again and again.
