Someone had a crazy idea to put up shutters/blinds in bedroom. So much light comes in from all those lights in the hallway. Not a smart move. Heard complaints before I got here and heard complaints while I was here. They need some way to cover them at night. If you like a dark

Thank you for posting this review! I had to go and see this because every year, we look for ways to add to our guests’ experience, and our new Bahama shutters have probably been the one most popular addition mentioned to me in years. I don’t often work during the night, but I did tonight… when I turned them down from the inside, there was indeed some light that came through, but when I ran my hand down them top to bottom, it pretty much eliminated it. Until your review, though, I wasn’t aware that the direction reversed, and when I did that (inside up, not down), it was completely dark. Please try that next time you are here… they really work and I hope you find that too. Thank you for choosing the Island Vista as your host in Myrtle Beach… we look forward to seeing you again soon!

We just stayed 6 nights at the Island Vista. We have gone to Myrtle Beach for the past few summers, but this was the first time staying here. The hotel was great! Very clean and friendly staff. From my understanding it is a family owned hotel, which I love! They know how to

Thank you for your great review! We are happy to hear that you had a great time, even with that rain. Thank you also for mentioning the friendly nature of our staff... I have seen that mentioned often lately, and we are very proud that it's noticed. We want to provide the best accommodations and amenities available and we work hard to do that, but the smile comes naturally. As an employee here for more that 10 years, I am sure I am speaking for everyone when I say that it's great to be a part of the Island Vista team. We're like a big family here with the same goal in mind... we want you to have the best vacation ever! Thanks again and come back and see us again soon...

Island Vista provides ocean front rooms for every suite! We bring a large group here every year and enjoy 2, 3 and 4 bedroom suites that are so spacious. The staff is so welcoming and the scenery is outstanding. There's a reason we always come back, it's fabulous!

The condo/hotel is very dated. The couch and chairs were very worn and lost their support. There is no complimentary breakfast but the private dining room serve excellent food for a reasonable price. I would not recommend this hotel.

Thank you for your review. With the confidential nature of Trip Advisor, we unfortunately do not have a way to locate your specific accommodation to inspect for flaws… however, our housekeeping and maintenance teams work with all units either daily or between guest arrivals to assure that such issues don’t occur here. With that, we seldom ever see such complaints and are very sorry to hear that your expectations were not met. Thank you for your kind comments about our Cypress Room, though, and we are glad that you enjoyed that. We hope that you will visit again and offer us the opportunity to provide a better experience.

We absolutely love this island Vista resort property in a residential area of North Myrtle Beach. The suites are well appointed and the pool area and beach are outstanding in every way. The staff members are more than pleasant and helpful in every respect. They try eagerly to

Sometimes I just have to say "wow"! Twenty years says a lot... I came to the Island Vista almost twelve years ago when it had just reopened from the early years, the Sea Island Inn. Back in those days, it was the first thing in this stretch of beach on the north side. In subsequent years, beautiful homes were built all around, and we ended up as the only commercial business in this whole mile of oceanfront. It is unique, but not just in location... the owners, the employees, and the guests have all contributed to a great twelve years for me, too. It's a great place to be, and we hope to see you for another twenty years! Thanks again...

We received an email from Island Vista letting us know they had sustained on minor damage and would be accepting reservations starting Sept 19th.. The only thing they noted was that the roads going into the Carolinas may be an issue and check with the roads dept or state roads division of the Carolinas to see the conditions.. Otherwise they are open for business.. Expect to see some damage and reduced operations there I imagine. Cheers

Yes. There is what looks like a vending machine by the entry way between the indoor and outdoor pools. Swipe your room key to take one and return to the hamper right beside it.

During peak time (June-Sep) they will do some small shows by the pool at night. They maybe last an hour or 2. Samoan fire dancers, reggae night, that sort of thing. Pretty subdued.

Is service dogs allowed?
I would think it would be best to contact the hotel with regard to service dogs.. We have never seen any in our visits and there are strict rules with regard to dogs on the beach. Better to be informed then not.
