We had a bumpy start to our vacation and ended up having to go hotel to hotel to find somewhere to stay. The minimum check in is 21, not 25 so that was really nice. The man at the front even helped get us a discount too after hear about our day! He let us check out the condo without...

Straight off the elevator there were bags of garbage outside our door along with a smashed raw egg, it was 4:00 pm. We entered room 1205, and immediately wanted to check out! There was a dead bug in the living room, so no one had obviously swept the floor. One of the bedrooms had dirty sheets, and broken pictures under...

It's not a high class hotel but for what it is you receive a very good treatment. We had a one bedroom suite with two double beds and sleeping sofa in the living. The furniture is kind of old but in good shape. Nothing to complain, as I said before it is what it is. If you need a modern...

The quality of your stay greatly depends on the accommodation you are assigned. The first unit that we saw was poorly decorated and had a very strong moldy odor. I could not even breathe in there. The second unit was much better, but the place had not been cleaned to my satisfaction. There were socks under the bed and the...

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Forest Dunes, it's in a really nice area of Myrtle Beach and the condos are a nice size.

The service was very good especially Caroline at the front desk. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. We eat at the small restaurant and the food was great. The view was so beautiful of the Beach just amazed at the Ocean. Will stay here again.
