“Nice but some issues”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

The value was great! Elevators were very slow and shower was backed up. Family enjoyed the pool and DJ and games and drinks by the pool. Felt like I was relaxed all weekend. Just wish the place was cleaner but overall very nice, kids loved the game room.

Reviewed 17 October 2013

I checked reviews of hotels for hours trying to find a cheap rate with an oceanfront view in a clean/friendly place. This was it! The staff was extremely nice, the room and hotel was very clean. We stayed in the 2 room with efficiency kitchen. Kitchen was great with everyting you need to make simple meals except a sharp knife which is understandable for safety reasons with kids. The beds were really comfy.
There was a bed in the main room so we could look out over the ocean while laying in bed (fantastical : ) The hotel is older so there were a few things like a leaky faucet, sink was crooked, chairs on the balcony were plastic lawnchairs. But!!! none of that bothered me. If your looking for reasonable accomodations that are clean and bug free I highly recommend this place. I will definately be going back in the future!

Room Tip: ask for a renovated room on the highest floor possible so your view doesnt include the pool below

We booked this for a girls weekend, and had no complaints. The rooms were clean, pools were nice, elevators were very quick. We stayed on the 10th floor, so that was very important! Close to all the local attractions. Our stay was very enjoyable

We have been going to Myrtle Beach for 20 years and The Reef is the best value. Rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the view is spectacular. All rooms are ocean front with private balcony. The front desk people are always such a big help with any questions that you have. I would recommend this place without hesitation.

We had a great experience at The Reef. Our room was clean with a beautiful view of the ocean. All rooms are oceanfront and the price is very reasonable for the accommodations. The staff was very friendly. William, John, and Nikki answered all questions regarding the resort and the Myrtle Beach area. The pools were clean both inside and out, as were the hot tubs. Maid service was on time every morning to empty trash and provide clean towels. The balcony overlooking the ocean was quiet and provided a great view both day and night. My son stated that this was one of the most relaxing vacations that he had ever had and we all agreed. There are some property improvements that I can see are being worked on, but if you want to stay at the Four Seasons, then pay the price. As far as my family goes, we had a great time and are returning to The Reef for Christmas break. I know that you'll read mixed reviews after this one, but some people are too busy being critical instead of just having fun. The elevators worked fine, who cares about clocks when you're on vacation, and kudos to the staff for a great experience! See you guys in December!

Dear Jay H,
Thanks so much for staying at the Reef. We are so glad that your vacation was restful and hope that you left the beach restored. Thank you for mentioning that the hotel is not new, nor is it comparable to a Four Season. The Reef would not meet the expectation of a guest looking for the Four Season experience. It was so gratifying that you mentioned our wonderful team members. Christmas is just around the corner, so we'll see you soon.
