Serendipity Inn
Ranked #1 of 9 Myrtle Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We were here one Sunday night, and had the Inn to ourselves. The Inn is located in a pleasant area and is quiet at night. Phil, the innkeeper, was friendly and helpful. The room was spacous with old-fashioned furniture, and was a bit tired-looking, but perfecly acceptable The rate was amazing value-for-money, the lowest we paid in a 3-week trip.

Your one block from the strip and only two blocks from the beach at this Spanish villa. The room we had was really nice and at a great price. The breakfast was buffet style and very good. Myrtle Beach can be expensive so if your looking for a bargain this is it. Their is an outdoor swimming pool and it's in a nice quiet neighborhood.

The service was great. It was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet. Loved it. I will do this again. Breakfast was good. Great coffee cakes each morning and only a couple blocks from the beach. It was really nice.

As mentioned by other reviewers this is nice mom and pops motel. It is a block off the main drag. There are restaurants and miniture golf wiithing a two minute walk from the hotel. It is not sleazy nor is the owner a snob as previously mentioned. Not sure where that person stayed at. Might be a bogus review.

Cons: The only minor complaints I had was the carpet was very old and worn out. The ceiling fan was noisy on all speeds. The television was old and probably needs to upgraded to a flat screen. You could only use the door knob lock to lock the door. The deadbolt can only be used inside the room. NO safes at the motel. Putting a small safe inside each room should not cost too much. No landline phones in the rooms. Phil the owner gave us the pass code so we could use WfFi electronics. Thank god for cell phones, IPOD's, and IPADS. The pool was nice. The water was clean. The bottom of the pool probably could use a scrubbing. Not a lot of parking but then there were not a lof of rooms. Phil and his wife do not live there. At end of night he goes home. he does not live near the motel. If an emergency arises not easy to get in touch with him.

PROS: Phil is a good host. Will answer your questions about Myrtle Beach and its surroundings. Has plenty of brochures of places to visit while staying here. Has a lot of cool-looking antiques in the check-in and dining room. Breakfast was good. Plenty of items to choose from. One hot entree and lots of bagels, muffins, fruits, orange juice and coffee. Yes, I agree, the earlier you get there the more variety. Bottom line there was always food there between 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. Overall the room was nice and cozy. We stayed on the second floor. The price is good compared to the hotels on the beach. If you are on a budget this is the place for you. Maid service was preformed every day. The maid does not get paid a lot so they leave a envelope for you to tip her. There is NO pressure on doing it. Maid service was EXCELLENT!

Bottom line in you want a hilton, ramada or time-share condo stay on the beach. If you want to save money and use it for shopping and entertainment then come to this place. You will NOT regret it.

Room Tip: Go upstairs and away from the main drag across the street
