“Stay Away From This Horrible, Ugly Place”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

I stayed at the Sea Mist because someone cancelled on me the after I arrived at MB. This is one experience I won't repeat. Dirty hallways, trash and linen thrown down, paint peeling off the walls.
Old, dirty mattresses on the beds, rooms have been broken into, paint peeling from room walls, damage not corrected, old Zenith TV where half the channels did not work, dirty chairs and balcony, rude, disrespectful guests, elevator that creaked and doors barely opened, rude housekeepers, front desk clerks. I complained and it got worse. The Driftwood building was supposed to be pet and smoke free. There was both there. Stay Away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: There are none!!

The prices are always reasonable. As a family with 3 young ones, they offered so much to do right at the resort. You don't have to use your car once you arrive there. As we grew through the years to a family with 3 teens, they offered the water park along with the park with thrill rides. Now, as just a couple, we enjoy the closeness of the "dinner and show" as well as the jacuzi's and the pools. The best part through the years is they are right on the beach with many amenities and a great price. Some of the rooms are older but who stays in their room when you have all the wonderful things to do at the beach?!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the bottom floor are easier to get to, as well as, quicker access to the beach and all the...

As retired couple, we loved our stay in Sea Mist. Everyone was very helpful and courteous. We did not meet any unfriendly faces. It was a perfect place for our family vacation- we stayed for 2 weeks. We also loved breakfast by Tena's. When we were there we looked around in several other hotels and condos to get some ideas. We came to the conclusion that Sea Mist will be the one, so we made reservations for next year for 1 Month . Even though we did not take our dogs along, we enjoyed staying in a comfortable, family oriented, and pet friendly place.

Staying for s soccer tournament we had a GREAT rate and oceanfront rooms. So the view was awesome and room was pretty clean, but it is OLD Myrtle Beach and pictures in the lobby showed it is being torn down and rebuilt. So hopefully the NEW Sea Mist will help bring up the old MB oceanfront in that area.

After reading varied reviews, I wondered what the Sea Mist was really like. We were in the area on business Nov 4th and decided to book an "oceanfront" room in the Tides Building. I believe it is the newest building. We unloaded at the main door of the Tides Building and parked a few yards away. Breakfast at Tena's was great. While I cannot say our room was new or plush, it was bright and cheery inside. The TV was new and had a good picture. For some reason, I couldn't get on the wifi, but there were computers downstairs I could use. The kitchen was clean. The bathtub sparkled. Mattresses were comfortable. This would have been a three or four rating due to the age of the furniture and carpet, but the view was so spectacular and the staff was nice to us in every way, I gave it a five rating this time. The price was right and the view beautiful. This pertains to November. I cannot rate the activities, gift shop, etc, since a lot was closed for the season. We will be back in May and will review again at that time.

Room Tip: Buildings vary in age and condition. Ask for the Tides Building and stay one floor above ground lev...

My family drove down to Myrtle Beach with another family and both of us booked rooms at the Sea Mist just to stay one night before we could check into the our other hotel. We knew it wasn't going to be luxury accomodations, but we definitely didn't think they would be this subpar. We stayed in the Sea Spray building. I knew it would be run down and older, but it was just one night and we thought surely it can't be that bad for one night. First, we get there and there is NO parking at all. The Sea Mist is basically on the "ghetto" end, and there was no way I am walking a couple of blocks in the ghetto with two children 5 and under with a suitcase at midight. So my husband dropped us off and then he walked through the ghetto back to us. He mentioned seeing a hooker walking around our parking lot/alley way on his way back. The other family we came with saw the hooker over by their Sea Mist building too, which was the large tower across the parking lot from the Sea Spray.

In the room, there was hair in the bathtub. The shampoos and lotions in the bathroom were 1/2 and 1/3 of the way full. OUR DOOR DID NOT LOCK!! The chain lock was broken in half, and the mount was broken off the door and hanging. The actualy lock didn't lock either, and we ended up "locking" the door with the ironing board in the room. The mattress was only about 4 inches thick. And there was sand in the bed.

In the morning, the maintenance lady came to check on our door lock, did I mention she came at 7:00am?! Not the best way to wake up on your first day of vacation, especially when my husband asked them to not fix the door until we left, since we would be checking out anyway. When we left the next morning, a dog was walking down the stairs at the same time we were. Just a dog, no owner. ????! It was just for one night, but it was a learning experience for us! I simply cannot imagine ANYONE would stay more than one night here. Pay the extra money and stay somewhere that is cleaner, the door locks, there are no random animals, and actually have parking somewhat close to where you are going to be.
