Very Clean which is a must for me but I was very disappointed in no heated pool. With a family visit during spring break, this was just crazy. Hot tub was not hot, barely warm so a few kids used it as a pool.

I typically always write a really good review for Holiday Inn but not this time. The good points for this one are the location and the beach. The bad points are that the entire hotel needs a complete remodel. It's showing it's age. With a well done remodel this property could easily double its rates.

Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to know you enjoyed our gorgeous oceanfront. Our property is in the process of renovating which was slowed down due to the Damages of Hurricane Matthew. We hope you will return again as we will continue to update/upgrade the property.

Great hotel on the Oceanfront in Surfside. Close to all of the attractions without having to be in the middle of Myrtle Beach. The entire staff was friendly, especially Terry at the Front Desk. He was excellent! I will definitely be back to this hotel.

We just arrived home for a weekend at the above hotel. Overall, it was a very nice hotel. The entire staff was terrific. This is front desk, bar staff, breakfast staff and maintenance. The hotel was quiet. Since it isn't the season, the evening restaurant isn't open. There is a pretty good bar menu, and those who wish can dine...

The outside of the hotel looks ok, clean parking lot and it is a ocean front hotel, however the rooms are dimly lit plus the walls are painted in dark earth colors making it even darker. Not the best Holiday inn express but if you want to be near the beach this might be ok. The hotel is located in...

I went to the beach to visit my daughter and grandchildren. They already had guests, so I chose to stay nearby at the Holiday Inn Surfside. I stayed in one of the ocean front rooms in the middle of January. I got there late in the evening and really didn't want to go back out, so after settling in, I...

This is a hard review to write. There were positives and negatives. The location is on the beach (positive) but it is in a location not easily accessible to other activities, food etc... without transportation. The hotel on the outside is dated but clean. The lobby was updated and gave you a welcoming feel. All of the employees at the...
