This place looks like a motel right out of the 60's but it is newly renovated, bright, and clean. The location is amazing in the Golden Mile Area of Myrtle Beach where attractions are easy to reach, but the beach is uncrowded. There is a small public playground adjacent to this small motel that is right on the beach! This...

We wanted to stay one more nite at Myrtle Beach but the hotel we were staying at was going to be over double the price for a Fri nite compared to what we had paid thru the week and I did not want to pay over 225.00 a nite.. We did need all the amenities that catered to the kids...

We stayed at the Mermaid In and were surprised that the rooms are not exactly as pictured. The beds do not have a comforter or duvet it is just a sheet and yellow fleece blanket. The bed was clean without any stains or hairs. From the attached picture you can see that they are not routinely changing the air filters...

We stayed at the Mermaid Inn in February and April 2017. We've been visiting Myrtle Beach often since 2002 and this is by far the cleanest hotel we've stayed at with a very reasonable rate. The staff was very friendly and beds are very comfortable. It is a lot quieter location for our family with great access to the pool...

Only 3 stories and only side view of ocean. Do not accept room 100! Had necessities (coffee, coffee. Small fridge). No elevators. No hair dryers. We booked our reservation thru bookings but call hotel before booking to get an even better price.

Staff was great... Maintenance was great... House keeping was helpful. .. Easy to find close to the beach.. The hotel was close to the Broadway so it wasnt that bad... Overall i give it a 6-7... I just wished they sold breakfast. ..

Our room was spotless, and well stocked with all the amenities. We had wonderful views of the pool, and ocean. The beds were extremely comfortable, and well dressed in clean, white cotton . The staff was lovely. Can't wait to stay again!

So, let me start off by saying you can't please everyone. I read mostly good reviews about this motel and some bad ones. I came to the conclusion that you cant please everyone, I booked a 2 bedroom suite for 3 adults and 1 child and we loved it. The room was very spacious as expected. Everything was awesome, even...

Very nice location. Quiet and very clean. The staff was very pleasant. They didnt offer me a military discount. There wasnt a iron and ironing board in the room. But other than that my stay there was good for the price.

The Mermaid Inn is in a perfect location! Right on the beach, middle of town so it's about 10 minutes from everything (or less). Room was wonderful and had no trouble with noise. We went during spring break (not realizing it was spring break) and were concerned with the number of college kids staying there, but we didn't have any...
