Looking at the pictures I expected this place to blow my socks off. It was a bit run down looking. Especially the pool area. They have more staff at check in than they do maintaining the place. More staffing is needed in cleaning the main areas and pool area. Pros: Clean, comfortable rooms, good shower, short walk to the beach Cons: Small parking spots in garage, pool area needing fresh paint and maintenance, pools were dirty with food, food wrappers and cigarette butts -people were throwing cigarettes from the balcony into the pool, no staff was there to do cleaning, sand from the beach dirtied the inside pool floors, more lighting is needed in the indoor lazy pool which was so lazy it barely moved- you have to walk all the way around it - floating is impossible.
This was a very nice place to stay. Clean room, modern update, with separate kitchen and living room. Full size kitchen which is great to help save money with breakfast and lunch. Great location in north myrtle beach, safe area, has a nice shopping area two blocks from the hotel with a arcade, 3 ice cream shops, 3 bars including a unique one for the 65+ crowd, and a few pizza shops. Bigger attractions are only 15-20 minute drive away. Nice beach area, plenty of space for everyone. Chairs and umbrellas for rent if desired. Can walk for miles either side of the beach. Ocean water is warm. Had an odd windy week which the life guard was telling us was unusual. Hotel has multiple pools and hot tubs and two lazy rivers. Crowded but as expected for the time of year. Hotel as two separate buildings a north and south tower with 17 floors each. We requested the 17th floor which was great, rarely heard any noise at all (rare kid running outside the door). Sometimes the elevators was a wait but never more then a few minutes. Parking was across the street but always found a spot and they have multiple parking available at the hotel itself for loading and unloading your car. Would stay there again.…

Your employee Jeffrey Barbour was very professional and nice. We had a pleasant conversation and gave me information I needed. I expressed my concerns and he was reassuring with any questions I may have had. I appreciate him for listening. Lydia DeRousse
We had a wonderful vacation. All of the staff was helpful and kind. Jeffrey Barbour was wonderful with helping us unload and load the van and every time we seen him he was always helpful. We will definitely be back next year.
