I hate that so many people have written bad things about this motel because it had me more worried the closer our vacation got! We took a girls' trip from Aug 3 to the 6th. We got there about an hour before check in and were able to get right in the room. It is an older motel, but the...

Smells horrid, the elevator barely runs. Only good thing is the location. Comforters and rooms are very outdated. Needs major cleaning and renovation. Wouldn't stay here again. No amenities, no breakfast. Don't waste your money.

Was staying here july 16-20 and Yes this hotel is a bit run down but overall I had a good experience. I was mainly down in Myrtle Beach for golfing and enjoyment. My room was clean and the service I had no problem with.

I read the reviews before we booked. I must say, I usually like better odds but we were looking last minute for a budget friendly hotel so we chanced it.. I am glad we did.

We took a family vacation for the first time in Myrtle beach. We stayed at the Driftwood Lodge. It was a very nice family environment. We had the best office front view. The staff was wonderful and helpful. Great prices and lots of extras to go along with the package.
