This place sucked!! It had a HUGE hole in the wall that I took a pic of. The bathroom tub leaked, the sheets were nasty. My husband and I didn't dare walk around without shoes on, and we refused to take a shower in that tub. Put it like this, it was cleaner on the beach than in that room.... More

This is not a five, four, or even a three star hotel. This hotel is fine for what it is. I needed a last minute hotel on our way down to Florida. This popped up and I took it. The rooms are clean, in decent shape and there was plenty of hot water. On the other hand, the towels were... More

My husband and I came here for valentines day and it was a great place to stay. We loved it. It wasnt the prettiest place to stay but it was cheap and worth it. We stayed here for two nights and it was 80 dollars. The bathroom was great. Had enough towels for us. They also let you do this... More

Where should I start? One of the worse motels/hotels on Myrtle Beach is a starter. I wanted to check out when we got there but hubby didn't want too.

I can't imagine this motel would pass a health inspection in the room we stayed in. The cabinet doors in the kitchen were falling off the hinges. The only lights available were a small lamp on the nightstand and a tall one. Both lampshades were cracked, and the electrical part of the tall lamp was so loose we were afraid... More
