“Love it”
Reviewed 10 January 2011

We love this resort!! We stayed here for celebrating the new year in 2009. We had a ocean-front room and it was so romantic and nice. We came back this year for the New Year (2011) and once again, had a lovely time. The highlight of the trip were the fireworks on New Year's eve which, I believe (although not sure), was arranged by the hotel. We had a spectacular view right from our balcony on the 10th floor. We absolutely loved it and Ocean-Reef would always be our resort of choice in Myrtle Beach. The resort is uptown but is in a more quieter section of MB, which was perfect for peace-lovers like us. We also had the breakfast buffet every morning and it was delicious. The food and service were great... :)

My boyfriend and I just returned from a weekend trip to Myrtle Beach. I looked this hotel up online and it seemed to be a fairly good place. I, however, would NOT recommend it!! There was mold in the shower, the water was absolutely disgusting (with white and brown stuff floating in it), and it was just not nice. My boyfriend spilled water on the floor and took a white towel to clean it up. I later looked down at the towel and realized it was BROWN... what does that tell you about the floors??!! They're disgusting. We both woke up in the middle of the night, with burning and itching skin. I have no idea if it is due to bed bugs or not??.... however, almost 12 hours later... my skin is STILL BURNING!! I made an account just to post this review. The people seemed very friendly when we checked in though. And the view was amazing from the 15th floor. Other than that, I can't think of anything good??........

All rooms are thoroughly cleaned and inspected before our guests are allowed to enter them. After reading this review, we immediately went to the room to inspect it. It is very well kept by the owner and there was no evidence of any of the complaints.

Sometimes, the water will appear white due to air getting mixed in with the water. This happens everywhere and is just a combination of many small air bubbles that dissipate shortly after.

There also is no infestation in this unit nor has there been in its history. We pride ourselves on our Trip Advisor ranking and have made it this far by keeping our hotel in superior condition.

Something about being able to hear the Atlantic Ocean from your bed makes sleep arrive just a few minutes earlier. The staff were exceptionally polite but that could be due to my inexperience with southern hospitality. The rooms were very clean and pretty. The hotel seems to be well-maintained, albeit a tad difficult to navigate. And while it was a little cold in the hallways due to the open concept, the warm staff and rooms more than compensated.

I recently returned from the Ocean Reef, went the day after Christmas and stayed for 2 nights, great place, parking not great, but I didn't see any good parking at Myrtle Beach, if you have a truck, a very tight fit. But the staff was great, the indoor pools a real plus traveling with a 6 year old, nice place, very clean.

I decided to give Ocean Reef another chance based on the more recent reviews. Our last stay three years ago was unpleasant. This stay was much improved. We were able to check in 90 minutes early. The agent was very nice and friendly. I was especially pleased that they met our request for an upper 1 bedroom angle ocean front room away from noise. We were on the 14th floor of the South Tower. The view was terrific. The room was impressively clean. We didn't eat at the restaurant because we cooked breakfast in our suite. The beds were comfortable. The couch wasn't too comfortable for more than 1 person. The kitchen lacked any baking sheets/pans. I would definitely stay there again.

I stay here every year for many reasons. The hotel is very clean and well-maintained. I love it's location as it is close to many attractions like the House of Blues, and on the quiet end of the beach. The staff is pretty quick at correcting any problems. This place is affordable and so nice. We have so many family memories here!

We stayed at the Ocean Reef for 5 days the week before Christmas. The staff was great, especially Will at the reception desk. He was very helpful and made great suggestions, where to eat etc. Our oceanfront room was clean and comfortable, we would in future stay in the king suite for the few dollars extra, it looked very nice. Our breakfasts were wonderful, from the hot chocolate with whipped cream, to the hostess and waitresses, the food prepared by the cooks was excellent. A great way to start your day! Although the weather was cooler than expected we were able to enjoy the lazy river and the heated pool. We would definitely consider going back to the Ocean Reef again. Thanks for the memories.
