I stayed at Viking because it was one of the most affordable places online at the time. It's kind of dirty and a old, but I never had high standards in the first place. What I regret is booking the room online because when I arrived I realized I could have just booked a hotel when I arrived at a...

The desk clerk was really nice. We checked in at 2.00pm. The desk clerk could tell my husband was disabled, so she helped us get to our room early. It is inexpensive ,no frills. It has analog tv. It is right on the beach front and it has rooms large enough for families with kids, that otherwise could not afford...

Myrtle Beach motel located on the beach. inexpensive, no frills, but right on the beach for under $45.00 a night total. Walking distance to beach dive bars, expensive hotels, cheap eats, etc. What more do you want?

If you don't mind a bit of sand and some self housekeeping, this place is good for the price. Nothing fancy, doable. Once you you realize it is not a 5 star establishment you can go on to enjoy the pool, the balconies and access to the beach. This place is always full. The staff are nice, and yes, it...

Although I was extremely skeptical, I was pleasantly surprised! The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean with PLENTY of towels, the bed was soft, so were the sheets and fluffy pillows. For as little as I paid, I was well satisfied with what I received!

The hotel is old and bad. I paid for a big room and the front desk gave me a small and rusted room with bathroom cracked. Enclosed is the photo of the bathroom. When they gave me the small room they didn't gave me the money back instead they charged me another $36.00 for 3 nights in taxes.
