After getting started off on the wrong foot our reservations were mixed up and discovered it the day before we were to leave, but Crystal or may start with a K Krystal helped us and accomodated us the best she could over the 4th of July Holiday which worked out fine when we saw the room once we arrived.

We started going to this hotel after our regular one was booked due to conflict of schedule with Bike week and Duke Graduation. We go the weekend right before the peak of bike week. The value is good and the rooms are ok. This is a nice place to stay for the value. I am here to sleep, shower and...

We decided on a spur of the moment to take a trip to Myrtle Beach. We found this place on a hotel deal website on our smartphone, but instead of booking it through there, we showed the front desk the deal. Not only was it $80 cheaper, but they went ahead and beat the deal by another $10 without us...

First time for my husband and me to go to Myrtle Beach. We tried getting a room at the Caribbean but they were full so they offered us the Jamaican. They said they owned that building too so it would be ok. BEWARE: Every room is privately owned. We found that out after we got there. When we checked in,...

I am ONLY recommending this if you are looking for a no frills, convenient place to stay. This would have been suitable if they charged half the price they charged us. The employees were not very helpful and essentially lie to you - so if you have issues, don't expect good results.

I wanted someplace right on the beach, inexpensive and clean. The Jamaican was all that. The room was plenty big...(I had 3 teenagers with me), great water pressure in the shower...and the air conditioning was great. The pool was clean and well maintained. The maid service was excellent...anything we needed she got for us with a big smile. We were...

I have stayed at the jamaican for years now but the last time I stayed I was not pleased with the experience. I almost didn't return this year. I looked at many different hotels before my grandma said oh, let's give it another try. So we did and I am happy to say they have improved on the overall look...

It is right on the beach, but it's also kind of dirty and seedy. We had a ground floor room and someone stole our swimsuits and towels from us as they were out drying on the railing. There's no security at all, and the public beach access point right next to the hotel looks like a nighttime hangout for methies....

We went the Caribbean to get a room and they sent us to this place. The outside of the building was in great need of some attention however I decided to give it a try. The room was relatively clean however the entire place seemed almost unsafe. I was not comfortable staying in this room and would not stay there....

The room smelled stale. The carpet felt so dirty and sticky we kept our shoes on at all times. We itched from sleeping in the bed. If two people , even on different floors, were using hot water at the same time you were either scalded or taking a cold shower. Housekeeping cranks up their portable radios while they're cleaning...

“Pay a few dollars extra for an Ocean Front room, it is so worth it. Also request a high floor, they only have 4 floors and the higher the floor the more beautiful the view.”
