“Smelling Badly!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2011

I stayed at the Ocean Dunes for three nights during my 10-day stay in the area. I was travelling with two small dogs. The room I had smelled badly of pet urine. I guess the $100 pet fee (no matter how many night you stay) gets spent elsewhere. The room was run down and in need of updating. Overall, I got used to the smell. The view was wonderful. There are other pet friendly hotels in the area that are more updated, cleaner and the pet rate is more accommodating, especially if you are only staying a few nights.

Room Tip: Make sure you are staying long enough to get the most out of the pet rate.

This was our 2nd trip to Myrtle Beach this year, we chose to stay at Ocean Dunes again because we found a great deal on hotels.com. Our first trip there was in June of 2011, our fridge did not work and the toilet was not very sturdy, when you flushed it, the back would lean against the wall. This time, things were much better until we saw a HUGE cockroach on the wall late the first night. The lady at the front desk acted like it was not a big deal, she said "palmetto bugs" were a regular thing there. She agreed to move us to another room. The bellman helped us move and said he completely understood why we did not want to stay in the room with the bug. Also, the button and panel for the elevator fell off in my hand one day when I pushed it, the lady at the desk just said "it happens all the time". Everything was ok, the staff was friendly and the housekeeping staff provided fresh towels daily but I would not pay over $50 a night to stay at this place. It's great for the price if you get a good deal. We really like that it's pet friendly and they were very nice to our Yorkie and even gave him a bag of treats, food and water bowl and a sign to let everyone know there is a dog in the room. We'll be back if we can find a good deal.

Room Tip: all of the rooms seem to have a good view of the ocean

I have stayed at this hotel and its sister properties many many times and I haven't been disappointed yet, at least by the hotel itself. This trip was after the beach season had ended and was during the business week. This meant that the other people at the hotel were definitely not approaching the age of 30 as I was, but had surpassed that age many moons ago. I felt like I was in the middle of a retirement home. The up side of this was that none of the pools were ever over run with adults or children. There was 0 noise. The beds were comfy. The shower was had great temperature and water pressure. The only downside is that some of the other senile visitors to the hotel may make some questionable off color comments to you because they forgot what year it was and that everyone's money is just as green as theirs. All in all good place to stay beware of the bigots.

We stayed at Ocean Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC on 7/28/11 for two nights. Our room in the Tower II suites was great--it was recently renovated and the view from the windows was amazing! The Tower suites are very spacious, especially for our family of 5. We will be back in October to request the same room!

This is the first time we have stayed in the Towers of Ocean Dunes where we were a bit disappointed in the room. The room had several issues with the upkeep and looked very much in need of an upgrade. The toilet ran until we jiggled the handle. The same toilet wouldn't flush unless you held the handle down. The dining room table wobbled. There was a big stain on the carpet. The balcony furniture was stained. There was no can opener. Little things like that were things we noticed and added up. However, we had a wonderful vacation. The staff was very, very friendly and helpful as usual and I love the area!!

We reserved a room for Labor Day weekend. We were really excited as the website boasts "newly renovated rooms" and it is pet friendly. The location is great - and that's about the only thing that is great. The building is old and musty smelling and our rooms didn't appear renovated whatsoever. The bathtub didn't drain correctly, leaving you standing in 2 feet of water while bathing. The toilet also didn't flush correctly. Our rooms were not cleaned the entire 3 nights we stayed due to the housekeeping never being there before 3pm and us being out of the room (they won't clean if you have dogs). There was also a hug pile of trash that sat outside of our room for about 2 days in the hallway. For the price of this hotel and the quality that they appear to have online, it is not up to par. We will not be returning to this hotel again.

The staff was very friendly and helped in deciding where to eat. We also found a stray white kitty on the property and took her home with us. We loved the view of the beach from our room and saw some dolphins. Grat trip!

Room Tip: We generaly like the room with double beds for more room
