Perhaps I was taken in by the idea of a "Penthouse" but, I quickly learned that all Penthouses are not equal. It's difficult to decide where to start. There was one elevator for each side of the building. When you have 17 floors, elevators are pretty important unless you enjoy waiting. The "amenities" were nasty. The lazy river and pool were just nasty. They may be OK...if you come from South America, but not my standards. When the cleaning staff have to put a Glade Air Freshener on top of the refrigerator and in every room you should know something is amiss in Denmark. The floors were sandy and when wiped with a paper towel it was black. The coffee pot was dirty and fridge seemed on its last leg. Cabinets were bare and the place lacked ability to perform simple meal prep. If you are accustomed to the Motel 6 experience than this may be an OK experience for you, If you are more comfortable at a Marriott, please save your money and go to a Marriott. I haven't wasted this much money in a long time. We stayed one night (only because I couldn't find a decent place fast enough) and left the following for a wonderful experience at the Marriott Grand Dunes. I forfeited my other days to the maids or whoever else decided to stay in the "Penthouse." Yes, this was an expensive vacation. Hindsight 20/20, I would have forewent the adventure for the Marriott. PLEASE...PLEASE....PLEASE....if you have a modicum of standards, take your business elsewhere.
We so enjoyed our stay. The condo was clean, updated and had a fantastic view from the balcony. Great for early risers to enjoy beautiful sunrises. The location was very convenient and walkable to the Boardwalk, restaurants and other Myrtle Beach venues. Reserving the unit was very efficient. Communication through Trip Advisor to the owner was very quick and comprehensive. The owner provided all the details needed for our arrival and departure as well as locating the property. All in all a very pleasant experience. We look forward to returning to this property in future visits to Myrtle Beach.
