This was our third time staying at this hotel and it did not disappoint. It is at the beach but not on the beachfront. We were about 1.5 miles away. The hotel is very clean, comfortable, and the employees are all friendly. From the front desk staff, to the kitchen, to the room attendants all were polite and accommodating. Bed was comfortable, water pressure was great, the room was clean, AC worked great too, and ice machines worked as well. Overall, the hotel was a little on the quieter side which worked just fine with us! We will definitely be back!! :)

I dropped my wife at church for Saturday evening mass and then checked in at the Best Western. The woman behind the counter did thank us for being Diamond Elite members, gave us a small goodie bag, but then asked for an ID, stating she also would have to see my wife's ID after I picked her up from church. Very strange, as in 2021, Mother's Day week, we had no such encounter.

With the exception of the evening desk clerk, the other staff members were wonderful. In particular, Shawn was still there as the morning desk clerk, happy and friendly as always, and Cynthia still ran the breakfast room, making certain everyone had what they needed and being ever so friendly.

Our requested extra blanket already was in the room, 107, but other than that, the room was in bad need of an update. The rug was frayed in several areas. The room heater when on heat soon began to throw the smell of urine into the room. (Oddly, in the morning, it did not do that when I turned it on for heat). The unit either needs cleaning or the filters changed. The floor lamp looked as if someone had thrown up on it. See my photo. The toilet was not bolted properly to the floor and leaned badly when used. The bathtub filled with water while taking a shower. An hour later when checking out, the water still had not drained. I reported both the toilet problem and drain to the front desk.

Internet speeds measured rather well. Sink water pressure was good and the shower was fair. The only towel bar was a short one for the hand towel. Not that we used it, but there was only one Styrofoam cup for a hot drink in the room and only one each pod of tea, coffee and decaf. Breakfast was the usual buffet style and the coffee was fair.

PHOTOS ARE NOT UPLOADING.

The Best Western in Pawleys Island has the best value in the area. It's not on the beach - but so close that you won't even care. The Hammock Shoppes are two minutes away - visit Bisqit, you'll thank me later - and Paradice is just around the corner (best frozen treats ever!). The staff at this location are so friendly and helpful that you'll never want to stay anywhere else.

We stayed four days and on the last night we realized that housekeeping did not leave clean towels. When we went to the front desk to ask for towels they said none were available, and they could not take any out of vacant rooms because they may get a guest. Really?? I’m a current guest and I can’t take a shower? That’s just not acceptable.

We had reserved a three night stay at this hotel but found the room had a horrible stench which management had unsuccessfully tried to cover with an even worse disinfectant. The carpet was filthy and furnishings very dated. We only stayed one night and left early the next morning. Mamagement refused to give us a partial refund for the days we did not use and the American Express card people would do absolutely nothing either. Horrible vacation and long drive home. I believe the foul odor came from the high humidity of the area which caused a “sour mop smell” and the hotel could have at least used dehumidifiers. Never again😱😱. Beware this clip joint.

Checked in 4 guests, our room had two shower towels. I went fo the lobby to ask for more. I was told they had none and was instructed to use hand towels for showers. The following morning housekeeping knocked on our door to try to take the two shower towels we had..... ultimately, we used the two towels, and the flat sheets off the bed to dry off.....

We had to move rooms at 11:00 pm the first night to accommodate a handicapped individual. I don't mind the accommodation of an individual as much as the fact that they blamed the error on a computer glitch. Then I explained that computers compute what humans input. (mind-blowing)

The New room had one towel. I asked for another towel and there seemed to not be a spare towel in the entire motel at first. After meeting with the GM an extra towel appeared. They were nice enough to discount our room a little ($50) - we paid almost $200/night.

Won't be staying there again. I have stayed in worse places and I have stayed in way better. As I said, step up your game or decrease your price. Not worth what we paid even with the "discount".

My family got two rooms for the 6 of us and stayed 1 week. The hotel is in a good location and close to the beach. Highlights in the area are the bakery across the road, Incredible Edibles. Excellent pastries! The Hammock Village is close by and BisQit served up the best lunch we had the entire week. The Hotel was fairly clean and the majority of staff were very friendly and helpful. The family agrees the highlight of our trip was meeting the morning kitchen staff, Cynthia. She has to be the nicest person I have met on any vacation ever. Every morning I felt like I was going to my best friend’s home for breakfast! She was so welcoming! The fresh fruit, watermelon, berries, etc. was just perfect! I would go back just to visit with her. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. Housekeeping is on top of things and keep you stocked with supplies. Definitely would recommend! Tell Cynthia I sent you!

If you like getting screwed over, then this is the hotel for you! I made a reservation for a wedding, and then plans changed, so weeks before my reservation, I called back to cancel. No problem, right? I made the mistake of trusting that the front desk staff actually did their job and cancelled my reservation, but low and behold, I was still charged, even though I never checked in and they never called me. Took three days of calling to speak with a manager, being told to call back again tomorrow, even once being hung up on (excellent customer service) only to be told that since my reservation was at the end of February and I didn’t see the charge or get ahold of anyone that could help until March, they can’t refund me. Seriously?! Worst service and hotel experience in my entire life. Selfish, money hungry slackers. Save yourself the trouble and go somewhere else.

Excellent cost value for the location. Very comfortable beds. Clean and quiet room. But the "to go" breakfast is a joke consisting of a water bottle, an apple and a granola bar, that's it. So until things get more back to normal assume breakfast not included.

What beach access is used by visitors to the Best Western/Pawleys Island?
Answer from 41099
Pawleys Island, South Carolina
We have two beaches in our area. One is Pawleys Island which is an actual Island and it has a North and South entrance which is about a mile and 1/2 from our hotel. We also have Litchfield Beach that is located North of our hotel and it is within a mile of our hotel.
