“Disgusting”
Reviewed 5 November 2011

The hotel is in the center of a ghost town. Abandoned amusement park as well as an abandoned indoor shopping mall. Worse than all of that the Hotel itself was very dirty. The carpeting in my 2 bedroom suite looked as if a crime scene took place there. My wife commanded our children to keep their socks on at all times. We checked out the next morning. Avoid this place until they clean up their act.

My husband and I just stayed at the Staybridge Suites - Fantasy Harbour this past weekend, 9/23/2011-9/25/2011. We had Priority Club points and this hotel came up, so we decided to book it after seeing it got better reviews than most of the ocean front condos on Ocean Blvd. I'll get the one negative thing out of the way first. The hotel is at the entrance to the old Hard Rock Park/Freestyle Music Park that is in foreclosure and no longer operational. The closed down park is behind the hotel and the old (closed) Waccamaw Outlets are in front of the hotel. There are also several other closed down restaurants and business around the hotel. If I were saying there alone it might have been a little creepy at night, but my husband was with me, so I didn't worry about it too much. It was just a little unsightly. There are some open business and restaurants around the hotel. Mid-Evil Times is directly behind the hotel. There is also an Exxon gas station, a BBQ Restaurant and a Bob Evan's Restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. Besides the strange surroundings the hotel is in an awesome location! It is about 1 mile from the the Coastal Mall and 2 miles from Broadway at the beach. We were told there is a public beach access not far away also, but it rained most of the weekend so we never took advantage of that.

The hotel itself was very nice. The outside is well kept and looks new. The staff was very nice and accommodating.The lobby and breakfast area were very clean. The pool/basketball court area was beautiful and well maintained. The workout room had a lot of different machines in it. The little snack bar also had a very good selection.

The rooms themselves were very nice for an extended stay hotel. We're the type of people who check the pillows inside the cases, so if things are clean to our standards they're doing pretty well. There were no stains on any of the linens. The kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom were all very clean. The furniture in the living room looked a little worn, but with it being an extended stay hotel that was to be expected. The hotel does have some smoking rooms, so in some of the halls it did smell a little of smoke. It is also a pet friendly hotel and we saw and heard several dogs throughout our stay, which we didn't mind at all. To be honest, the dogs were much more well behaved than most children can be.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would without a doubt return in the future. You can't beat the price, location and cleanliness of this hotel if you don't mind the strange surroundings.

This hotel was wonderful in everyway. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I am very picky about a hotel and it has to be clean. This hotel was very clean in every way. It is a pet friendly hotel and since I was traveling with my two furry four legged babies it was nice to be able to stay in a nice hotel and still have my pet with me. They were very welcoming of my pets also, they provided a little goodie package upon checkin. Also, even though I am a pet lover and love my animals I can smell pet odor a mile away and this hotel did not have a pet odor in any way. The hotel felt like a home away from home! We had a suite with a full living room, kitchen, separate bathroom, it was wonderful. The hotel also provided a great complimentary breakfast each morning which was really nice. If you are looking to be right on the beach this hotel would not be for you, you have to drive to the beach but it does have a nice pool to relax by and I actually liked being out of the husle and bustle. The hotel is a great value for everything you is included. Can't wait to return next year!

The suites were very nice and clean. The staff, for the most part were very friendly. There were a couple of staff members who tried to spoil it for the bunch but pure ignorance does not bother me, it is everywhere. Never stayed here before but now I am a new fan of Staybridge Suites. The breakfast was excellent, it is hard to get such variety at most hotels.

Staybridge was a very comfortable and home like hotel. The rooms were spacious and provide you with the comforts of home. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is not very close to the actual beach, however it is away from all the hustle and bustle. A short drive will put you right on the beach. The breakfast was very good, and well stocked. We will return.
