As a couple on our first vacation we were looking for a good price. But you get what you pay for! My boyfriend booked the room before reading reviews (I will be booking further vacations-lol). After reading the reviews we had no idea what we would walk into. We booked thru booking.com/MBRooms for Rent. The room was just not something...

We rented our room from the Wave Rider/ Myrtle Beach rooms for rent. Our stay was at the Palace and the room was terrible. The description said the kitchen was equipped to serve four people and fully equipped. There were barely enough dishes for two people and the can opener was broken. I called the desk at the Wave Rider...

Stayed for a few days with my kids on our first vacation. The room seemed better than the exterior. The elevator didn't work and the key was straight out of the 50s. We spent as little time as possible there since the tv was snowy, the beds were rock hard, and the bathroom was very dirty (light bulbs out, water...

When we got there it looked gross, and after a few hours we noticed Bugs behind the mirror...two/three roaches. We called the emergency number and got a different room. The second room was a little better but we got our money back for the rest of the week and quickly ran out of that place. It was overall disgusting.

For being a last minute booking they were able to work with us. As far as the hotel, on the third night we saw bugs. When we got there, there was no phone, ice machine or blow dryer. The 2 good things about the resort were, they had a pool, which was nice, and they had a kitchen. Oh yeah...

We just returned from a six night stay at wave rider. Originally, i booked room 154 so we would have easy access to the pool. Once we got to the room, there were tools scattered about and the door was standing open. The door surround had been totally ripped out. They scheduled maintenance? They promptly switched us to another room,...
