Girls at check in were very helpful when I wanted to extend my stay for an extra day. I do not remember their names but they were working at 11am on Sunday, May 21,2017. The room was great and the grandkids loved the Lazy River & Water park. Loco restaurant was also very good:)

This beach front hotel consists of three separate towers. I had an Ocean Front Suite on the 5th Floor in Tower 1. Was there during 2017 Spring Bike Week. I found the room clean and comfortable. The room set-up was unusual for a beach hotel. The bedroom was on the street side of the suite - away from the beach...

The outside of this hotel is nice and pretty, however once you're inside it looks just like any other myrtle beach hotel room. The room itself was bland with just paint on the walls and no decorations what-so-ever. The only thing in the rooms were beds, a plain dresser, a nightstand, a small sofa and a small granite dining table....

We've passed the Crown reef many times and loved how it looked, all lit up with purple lights.. we finally decided to try it. I wish we didn't. We spent 357.00 for 2 nights. Our first night they had to switch our room, there was dirt and bugs everywhere. The room they moved us to was not much better. The...

Awesome. Honestly loved everything from the hospitality to the room! Even with the rain we had a blast! The call center failed to accurately enter our correct package information but Jackie in check-in was more than happy to fix things.

I read the reviews before I booked a room. The staff is very friendly and helpful. About the room. The light switches were dirty. The balcony needed to be vacuumed. The sliding door to the balcony is really hard to open and needs to be fixed. I'm glad I brought my Mr. Clean. I cleaned the floor and counter tops...

My daughter booked a getaway without checking the reviews. The reviews were all over the place. Bottom line, it's an older hotel that is being revived. You have to check in across the street at the conference center. The staff are very attentive and cheerful. Our first room had a minor bug problem- gnats or something. The staff person was...

Great Experience! Great value for the $$. Clean rooms and beautiful views. The water park and pools are great. The only issue we had was with the slowness of the elevators. Some trips took 15 minutes to get to the pool. I would definitely stay again.
