We were located in the old North building. Pretty dirty and rundown. Kitchenette had food crumbs and dirty dishes. Safe didn't work. Floor boards haven't been cleaned in ages. Balcony door had been busted before. Showers need updated. The beds were comfortable. The staff was wonderful! Attentive and nice. Very slow elevators in both buildings because the staff has to...

The hotel was so nice and clean at all times, The hotel staff was exceptionally nice and were helpful at all times. The two who went beyond the call of duty were Cheryl and Christine. If we had a question about anything they were always helpful and were always friendly. We especially loved staying in the club rooms. I loved...

We enjoyed the stay. It wasn't too bad. You can tell that it was renovated. We normally stay in South Myrtle Beach with newer resorts but made a last minute decision. Our room was nicely decorated and towards the end of the hall. It was completely family friendly. Our 7th floor cleaning lady Cynthia made our stay very pleasant. The...

The check-in was very easy & the rep was courteous. The room was also renovated very nicely and fairly clean. However that is where it ends, thus the two stars they earned. Free breakfast was fair, but no bacon, no cheese, no bagels or biscuits, no grits or potatoes. You get nothing else, the sheets felt like cardboard. If there...

Hotel parking is a block away. Very limited loading/unloading area in front of hotel. Only 2 luggage carts for a 21 story hotel - you can imagine the wait. Discovered dishwasher, air conditioning and dryer were broken. Maintenance responded but never fixed the dishwasher. Housekeeping was almost non-existent. Toilitries were not refreshed. Room never cleaned. Had to ask for towels....

Stayed here one night while traveling from Charlotte to Charleston. Our room was roomy and clean with a great ocean view. Friendly and helpful staff at front desk. Breakfast was okay. Location on beach is excellent. Good off season rates in March.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed in our stay. We had a 3 bedroom condo on the 9th floor. It was not clean, kitchen cabinets were dirty, door frame of one of the bedrooms broken. And it smelled like food, and not good food. The hotel is a bit worn needs some attention in the common areas. Our view was great but...
