This is the nastiest place I have ever been in. The outlets didn't work. The doors didn't lock, and the worst part we were in the room 5 minutes and a cockroach climbs on my 2 year old. We left right then and found somewhere else to stay. Unfriendly staff and no parking either. Don't waste your time at this...

We stayed senior beach week. Kept everything very clean and very quiet. Room was exactly as pictured on line. Was not picture taken several years ago when everything was new. The picture was current. Rates were unreal for the location.

Blatant drug use by people who stay there. Drug deals. Obvously the inspection process in Myrtle Beach is a joke....there is no way this place...

We went April 2010. The room was really musty like it had been closed up for some time. It took a lot of Lysol and airing out with the door open to take care of the smell. The mattresses were worn out and you could feel springs poking through them which really made it hard to sleep. No fitted sheet...
