We loved our stay! Staff was great! Room 100 is the best room we have ever stayed in! We r smokers and the designated smoking area we right outside the room. We definitely recommend the mermaid inn to everyone we know. My fiancé had never been to Myrtle Beach. Thank you mermaid Inn for making our getaway so amazing!

Staying in a hot and humid room as we speak in room 106. Manager only offer partial refund or credit for next booking, after saying he cannot get it replaced or serviced.. I politely declined the offer because I realize a full refund wouldn't happen since it is bike week and all pet friendly hotels are booked. This is our...

Warning warning warning.... Do not stay at the Mermaid inn. There are questionable people walking around the hotel all night. Several time we saw prostitute's walking throughout the property and going into rooms. That was least of our worries though.....there was hair all over the bedding, walls,sink,shower and the floor. There was also pubic hair in the shower and in...

When we tried to check in they did not have our reservation that was booked two weeks prior. Then when they did receive confirmation they refused to honor it. We had to cancel the booking and then pay them in person. When we got into the room we noticed no remote so we asked for one but gave us a...

I am sorry that your stay with us was not to the standards that you expected. I have to say that it doesn't make sense that we did not have a reservation but then were able to check you in. I am glad that we were able to accommodate you. As for the remote issue I am sorry that we...

My boyfriend and I stayed for three nights. The hotel is clean and the rooms are very nice. Just a quick tip...if you smoke do not get a room on the third floor. There is no smoking in the hotel,there are no balconies,and no smoking on the walkways so you have to go out to the parking lot to smoke...
