“Great view , & nice kitchen”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

When we first arrived , after our 10 hr ride from Philadelphia , we checked in with Nelson. He sent us to a very old , outdated room that had not been thoroughly cleaned . The beds were dirty. The sheets and blankets had not been cleaned . We went back to the front desk and Merica , was very helful . She gave us the option to choose from 3 better rooms. The 2nd room was much more comfortable. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with flat screen tv's, updated furniture, & a modern kitchen. Our room had a beautiful view of the ocean , we were literally 20 ft from the beach . After this , we were able to enjoy our vacation & all that Myrtle Beach has to offer .

Historic review based on visit in August 2010; however, I cannot select a date before 2013.

The Carolina Winds is ideally located on Myrtle Beach. We stayed one night while driving down the coast and it served the purpose well. The room was a very good size with two queen size beds, very clean and functional. We had a balcony and view over the beach, which was great for the sunset and sunrise. It was also reasonably priced, ample parking, and the staff were very helpful.

This was our first time staying at the Carolina Winds resort and we were pleased with the our stay. The room was nice and the views were good as well. One thing we really liked about this resort was the parking. There is no annoying parking garages which is always a mess, just open parking lots around the property for guest to park which we really liked. The staff was very friendly and helped us with every question we had, from where to eat, things to do for fun, and they even explained to us how to rent the beach chairs and umbrellas and contacted the lifeguard on the beach and set the rental up for us so it was ready when we got there. The lifeguard was a very cool guy and took great care of my family and I and he was also very helpful in helping us find the best places to eat and fun activities to do during our stay. We highly recommend renting an umbrella from the lifeguard Ryan as well because it provided us our very own spot on the beach every day and it kept us from having to lug our own chairs and stuff to and from beach. The lifeguard Ryan is very approachable so if you need an umbrella dont hesitate to talk with him about your rental options. When we were checking out we told the front desk lady how much we enjoyed meeting him and they told us that he has been there for like 15 years and is part of the Carolina Winds family and that all the guest love him and he's the best and most experienced lifeguard around, so if you have small kids etc.. you can assure that they are in good hands with Ryan. Overall we were very pleased with the entire experience and would recommend CW to anyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors provide slightly better views of the ocean

When travelling with wife, teenage boy and girl it is a necessity that we get a multi-room suite. Normally we get a 2 bedroom and let boy and girl bunk together. Not sure if its just me but 'resort' lodging rates have spiked in the last 2 years so we shop around a little more.

This was our first stay at Carolina Winds for the long 4th of July weekend. We were able to pick up a 3 bedroom ocean-front unit. This might be the best bang for the buck on the beach. Carolina Winds is not the newest or highest rated. It is a decent, upgraded and clean no frills place to stay, great for families and budget conscious folks wanting multi-room suites. The entire staff was always friendly and attentive during our stay.

We are glad this place popped up on our radar and we'll be back!

I stayed with my family in condo # 403 & we really enjoyed it! The view was wonderful and the the whole building was kept extremely clean. The staff was extremely nice and was always willing to lend a helping hand. The pools were always clean and the beach is within walking distance. I wiuld definitely recommend it to others!

Property was a little tired but kept up. Great pool, beach location and easy access. Loved sitting on patio before bed and watching surf. Price was right, enjoyed away from frenzie location but a close drive to anything you like. Had issue with stove called front desk at 1130pm switched to security guy. He came to our room and helped us get our pizza going. They won me over after that, and had all good experiences with the employees.

Stayed in Unit 101, and let me just say that if you want a beachfront view this is NOT your room! We were so disappointed with the view. We paid over 1400.00 to look at the lawn and our neighbors sunbathing. The dunes completely block the view of the beach. We were given a 10% discount! however I was still unhappy with the view. The Units are privately owned, and the owners of this unit need to do some minor repairs and updates. We had some plumbing issues, but management called out plumbers immediately. Thanks to Troy, it was taken care of.

Room Tip: The north building is where the swimming pools are located. The lazy river was at the building acros...
