Surfside Beach Oceanfront Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Surfside Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This was our first time at this hotel / beach and we'll definitely be back. We stayed in a newly remodeled room and it nice, nothing really special, but clean, quiet, and the bed slept well. The elevators at times were painfully slow, but that wasn't a huge deal to us. Location to the beach / pier was great, which was the reason we chose this place . The front desk staff was incredibily friendly and helpful , as was housekeeping. Lindsey was particularly helpful when I called after messing up my reservation online and then again with my beach chair and umbrella rental.

Dear Lisa R,
Thanks for choosing to stay with us on your 1st visit to the resort town of Surfside Beach. Located right in the middle of our quiet, family friendly little town, the hotel is close to nearly everything you might need, especially the beach and ocean (we're oceanfront). We are so glad we not only provided a clean room and comfortable bed, but also that staff was so friendly and helpful. We look forward to your next Surfside visit.

Rooms are small but sink is outside of bathroom which lets 2 people get ready at the same time. Rooms were clean but sheets and towels felt constantly damp. Getting ready to remodel so that may help. Only gave us one parking pass so we had to pay $40 to park our other car for the week - since we were paying over $200 a night the parking should have been free. Location for fireworks on July 4th was excellent.

Dear Stacy W,
We appreciate your reviewing the hotel. It's the comments of valued guests like you that help us to continue to improve our product and service. Being oceanfront right beside the pier (where the awesome 4th of July fireworks display is held) in Surfside Beach, we have the best location for watch the show.

Hotel is clean, easy to access, good location on beach that is not overrun with people, easy and close-to-entrance parking, rooms good but nothing outstanding, bed was very good. Really like the location between the main drag of Myrtle and Murrells Inlet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would consider it again, but it could use updating.

Dear Don C,
We appreciate your staying with us and reviewing the hotel. Staff prides themselves on not only providing clean, comfortable accommodations, but also being friendly and helpful to all of our guests. We're glad you found the property easy to access with parking close to the hotel. Our less crowded resort town of Surfside Beach offers easy access to both the busier Myrtle Beach and to the local's and visitor's favorite, Murrell's inlet. We look forward to your next visit.

My vacation was ruined by not having a parking place and no solution given by management other than parking in public lot at $9 per day and having to get up before 7AM every day to pay. One day I overslept and got a ticket at 7:30AM. I felt the manager should have provided a solution for me to park my car, but was unwilling. He didn't seem to care that we had these same dates last year and had no problem parking 2 cars. He blamed the new ownership on the change. There is nothing on the website advising limit 1 car, nor was there any parking info on the confirmation as he claimed. He said it was the cities' fault that multiple days could not be purchased when parking. When I complained that employees were parking at the hotel and I felt the guests should come 1st, he replied that we have to give our employees parking. What about us paying over $200 per night? They could pay the employees to park in public lot and let the guests sleep in. I advised the manager that I will give a bad review to anyone who will listen and the front desk and manger seemed to not care.

Dear Deb H,
Thank you for staying with us and reviewing of the hotel. As we mentioned at the time, we apologize for the misunderstanding about the parking and understand that you had previously been allowed to bring multiple cars for one room. Parking is limited, especially during the busier summer season, and in order to allow everyone at the hotel to have at least the one parking spot they are permited, we are required to limit parking permits/spaces to one per paid room.
Thank you for your understanding,
Phil Vassar
General Manager

My wife and I recently stayed at Surfside Beach Resort for the first time. One of the main reasons for choosing SBR was the location and convenience to dining, shopping and pier access. There were several dining choices within one hundred yards of the hotel and Surfside Pier along with their ice cream shop, tackle shop and diner is right next door as well. Bubba's Shrimp Shack, right across the road was great as well and staying at SBR gets you discounts at many of the local eateries. You don't have to get in your car and leave to eat and have a great time. The rooms were nice and we had a great view of the pier and ocean from our balcony. The staff, from booking (Sharon) to the lobby crew and the cleaning were very courteous and professional. The only negative, and a minor one, was the wait time on the elevators but should be expected on summer holiday weeks. We would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Best views from the 3rd or 4th floors on up. Pier view on one side or pool, bar view from other side...

Dear 42514,
Thanks so much for reviewing the hotel after your 1st time visit. We're glad you didn't have to move your car once you got here and enjoyed restaurants (4), pier, ice cream shops (2), gift shops (2) and beach bar all within steps of the hotel. The view of the beach and the pier is one of the most commented things about us. We look forward to hosting your next visit.

Its a hotel with small rooms, slow elevators, and needs a face lift bad. Rooms were clean, staff was nice, but nothing spectacular. You can see the ocean when you go out on the balcony. Good restaurants within walking distance, and a ok bar next door. Pool and hot tub way to small for a hotel of this size. We were just expecting a really nice romantic getaway and got the normal same old same old hotel experience.

We stayed at this resort/hotel after reading some reviews and friends recommendation. Best decision I made, no trouble parking, clean rooms and excellent and helpful staff, the view was amazing. We stated on the north side overlooking the pier. The surfside diner was the best food both me and my wife have had hands down. The bar is conveniently located to get a few drinks late at night the beach is not crowded at all. Yes the elevators were slow and couple of times we decided to just take te stairs to the 8th floor but that's just a minor thing in the bigger picture. And broadway and the boardwalk are only 15 min drive I would definitely return :-)

Dear GT_TIFF,
Thanks for both staying with us and reviewing the hotel. We are glad we met the expectations set by other reviewers and your friend recommendations, that your room was clean and comfortable, and there were no problems with parking. Surfside Beach does offer a less crowded alternative to the busier Myrtle Beach while being just minutes away from all it has.
Thanks again,
