This place is wonderful!

Pros: Beautiful property, clean, conveniently located, staff very friendly, screened in porch, washer/dryer in the unit.
Rooms were amazing to say the least! Fully stocked kitchen with everything you would need to cook and serve meals. Full size refrigerator and stove. Just such a nice condo near everything and the price was right. We had friends stay at a hotel a short distance away for double what we paid for our little home away from home and we had every amenity that you would possibly want. The best part though was being able to wash our dirty laundry before coming home because the unit had a washer/dryer in it! I cannot say enough about this beautiful property! We will definitely be back!

A wonderful experience!

Pros: Even though they had 2 outside pools and 1 inside pool, we were given a pass for the public park (just 4 miles away) to use their private beach.
Cons: can't think of anything
Location: We spent our time at the private beach (which we loved) and trying different seafood restaurants.
I'm very happy to be able to give an outstanding review for this establishment! Check in was easy and even though we were early and our room wasn't ready yet, they called us an hour later to say that the room was now available. Our room was furnished attractively, clean, smelled great, quiet, clean public areas, landscapers were busy putting in fall/winter flowers and friendly staff and maintenance workers!

Very nice hotel in center of Murrell's Inlet

Pros: Loved the location and close proximity to the "strip" in Murrell's Inlet.
Cons: We were never able to get our phone to work to call the front desk or housekeeping, we just had to flag them down in the parking lot.
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone! Very clean, nice condo with everything you could need included in the stay. Kitchen was fully stocked as far as plates, cups, cookware. Nice, fairly large flat screen TV in the living room, however, the bedroom had an older, smaller TV. Loved the screened in porch and nice area to relax. Overall, I look forward to staying again.

Nice condo, convenient location.

Pros: Good price, great location.
Cons: Housekeeping !!
Very easy to get to, great location. Rained all weekend with tropical storm so really didn't get to check out pools or mini golf. Condo had two bedrooms, the master had very comfortable king bed with mini en suite bath. Almost no counter space but workable. Second bedroom had two twins beds and a second full hall bathroom with two sinks and plenty of room. Kitchen was well stocked but first few wine glasses I pulled out of cabinet had chunks on them. Of course then I had to pull out everything and run the dishwasher. There were glass rings on the end tables and on the dining table. The floor had not been swept or mopped. When we put my grand daughter on the floor barefoot the bottoms of her feet were black with dirt. Housekeeping had not left any towels in the master bath so we called and asked for some. They were very polite and sent them with in just a few minutes. All in all a good setup for families and a good value. Needs a very good cleaning and probably a new head housekeeper if it was "inspected" and passed.

Nice Resort

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. They had the box tube televisions, but that was ok. I enjoyed my stay and would highly reccommend, especially if you like golf.

memorable memorial day weekend

I've reviewed this resort on other sites and am wondering if I simply lucked up on my stay back in May of this year. I was very happy with the accommodations: a nice sized one bedroom condo with a comfortable king-sized bed and a roomy screened porch, adequately-sized living room, huge plasma t.v., fully-equipped kitchen w/ granite countertops, nicely-appointed restroom facility with plenty of thirsty towels that were changed each day, and a reasonably-sized dining area made this a real home away from home. We had no problems with anything. The furnishings were clean and modern, our linens were clean and comfortable, the kitchen was fully-equipped and roomy, and everything worked as it should. The walls were not thin at all. We didn't know that there was a large family next door until we met them coming outside. The only drawback really was that the bedroom and living room spaces are tight. The furniture in each room leaves very little walkroom, but, hey, it's decent enough for two people. Besides, if you're there for a romantic getaway, how much space apart do you really need? Hope your luck is as good as ours was.
