The most important thing that you can do when preparing to go to ocean creek is book through a privet owner, as I'm sure you have read most reviews call this place great, or the worst place in myrtle beach. I have noticed that all the bad review come from those who have booked through the resort, not privet owners. I can not say a thing about booking through the resort since we use owners but what I can tell you is that I have never had a bad time at ocean creek in the 8 years I have been going.

I read a couple of reviews regarding the cleaning of the rooms, it is important to remember that this is not a hotel, it is a resort there are not people to clean your room daily or make your bed for you.

This place is beautiful and in such a great place, with Barefoot Landing right across the street, and a almost endless selection of restaurants it is hard to imagine going anywhere other then Ocean creek for my family vacations.

All in all if you read other reviews that say how bad it is, they probably used ocean creek to book them, but if you use a owner you will have found a great place to visit every time you find yourself in Myrtle Beach

Room Tip: The south tower is the best place to stay there. Use a privet owner to book your stay.

Here at Ocean Creek Resort we offer many services that other rental companies on property do not. For example, we offer daily housekeeping service, and we also have a maintenance staff that is here every day of the week to offer any assistance. In the event of a lockout our front office is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year to ensure that our guest's needs be handled promptly. For our guests we also offer a work-out room located in one of our lodges. We have an array of fantastic units that we manage. Our Owner Relations Coordinator works very closely with our owners to make sure our units are up to our high standards. As a resort we hope that our future guests can experience what we do best at Ocean Creek Resort---Exemplary guest satisfation!

I wouldnt stay anywhere else in MB other than Ocean Creek. Been coming here for 15+ years and yes, things arent as great as they used to be, but its still a great resort. I would never ever book through ocean creek itself though. Book through a private condo owner. There are some really nice condos that we have stayed in multiple times. The beach is really great, and safe at night for teenagers. There is a "swash" in the front of the condo so it feels a little more private and secluded because it only has a condo on one side. Speaking of this new monster condo, be careful of end units in the North Tower because they no longer have an ocean view. I have stayed in both towers but would recommend the south tower because the pool is better, Old people should stay in the north tower. It is also an easy (although sometimes hot and muggy) walk to barefoot landing across the street! I love that place. U can also drive but it can get busy in peak hours. but that goes for anywhere in MB!

Room Tip: DO NOT BOOK THROUGH OCEAN CREEK RESORT!! Book through a company of private condo owners. You get a much better idea of what youll be getting with the privately owned condos. Ocean Creek owned condo's arent very nice. If you book in the North Tower, make sure your condo still has an ocean view. A new condo complex was built next door and many of the condos no longer have a view.

My wife and I have stayed at the Ocean Creek Resort for almost 25 years. We are currently staying there (for 4 months) as SnowBirds. We love the location, the proximity to great bars, restaurants and shopping. It is located right on the beach and has direct access to US17, all of which we love.

Many of our friends and family come here for the same reasons, but despite our loyalty, Ocean Creek delivers poor and indifferent service. Simple problems do not get solved. Our 2 bdrm lodge unit lacks a few simple items. Without getting into petty details, and despite repeated telephone requests, our telephone calls are ignored. And we still have our issues.

We continue to love this place and, as difficult as it is to believe, we will probably come back. But, it will never, ever be with a booking thru Ocean Creek Resort itself. In future we will rent from a private owner or from someone else booking units. Our past experiences with Ocean Creek Resort and it's staff are over.

It is sad that such a good place could do such a bad job servicing it's guests.

Room Tip: Book with a private owner or with a rental agency.

I have stayed in 3 bedroom condos in the Ocean Creek towers twice over the last two years for a group golf outing organized thru Ocean Creek. The first year I thought maybe the condo we got was an aberration. It looked like it had not been touched since the 1980's when it was first built. Grimy old teal green carpet, old furniture and fixtures, old kitchen and baths. This year, the unit we got was even worse, which I did not think possible. In addition to everything being OLD, it was not well maintained or clean. The refrigerator was rusted out on the side that was visible. Gross old furniture, dirty walls, floors and baseboards. The shower fixtures were gross and rusted. Even the balcony furniture was moldy and disgusting. I will never again sign up for this golf outing so long as they stay at Ocean Creek. The facility is tired and management should not put guests in substandard condos until the owners pony up for major updates. It's a shame because the resort is in a lovely setting and has one of the best stretches of beach on the Grand Strand.

We've stayed at OC every year for the past 15 years, and during those years we have been in 15 different condos. That has now changed. We stayed in unit PP6 in the South Tower and absolutely loved it. It has an expanded deck area that offers so much more outdoor room than a standard patio. As far as the resort goes, it's hard to beat OC with its great family pools, two big hot tubs, the inlet creek that fills up during high tide, and the overall friendliness of every staff member we encounter. It feels like home.

Room Tip: South Tower has best ocean views. As already stated, unit PP6 is AWESOME!
