This property was not clean. When we arrived, the pool was empty like a skateboard park.

The room was nothing like it looked on the web site. The room stayed hot at night and was not cleaned very well. My husband and I went out for a walk after we got into the room and when we came back I noticed that my wallet was in a different part of my pocketbook. I was and am very unhappy about some of the things with this hotel.

Room Was a Disaster

Pros: Close to the beach and other attractions.
Cons: Rooms! Employees dress and professional look!
Location: Close to Beach, nice view, Easy to find stuff to do close by.
We showed up to the Econo Lodge in Myrtle on 7/11/18, when we got there the staff looked frazzled. The lady was talking to the other front desk guy asking for sweet tea and told me they didn't have a reservation for me ( I called the day before to confirm they did and THEY DID) so I told her that then she found my reservation. We get to our room after not finding a handicap spot and our keys wouldn't work for the first 20 times we tried. Then we get in and the door frame was off going into the sitting room! We called the desk and they sent someone up to fix it. We then went back to the front desk about the keys and they said the door needed a new battery so they maintenance had to fix that. People from restaurants kept putting flyers under our door and in the hallways. THEN I go to turn on the tv and there is 1 remote for 2 tvs! The cable box was off the wall on the floor wire just all over. Look at pictures I am attaching. Then I went to plug my phone in ONE outlet and it was out of the wall no cover look at the picture! AND The phone cable for the room next to it was also out of the wall wires exposed the light that was plugged into the outlet went off when I plugged my phone in! Scary! The pop machine took my money and did not give me anything so I had to go back to the front desk. A girl that was working there had a hoodie on over her head and was sitting in the dining area I didn't know she was a worker!! When we checked out I showed the pictures of our room no refund!!!

Econolodge Budget

Cons: Just the wifi
My family and i really enjoyed our stay. Its not a 5 star resort and if you want that - then pay more money and go else where. I got what i paid for and i believe it was worth every penny. I booked with travelocity and did not get a beach front room. But when i got there the gentlemen at the desk upon my check in gave me a beach front which was very nice of him. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The room was cleaned very well. Had a little issue with the wifi but no big deal. The breakfast was good and fresh. they had hot waffles you make your self, muffins, and cereal. I would book again with econo lodge. If you want to walk down to the sky wheel it about a 30 minute walk or a little over a mile no big deal. You can get to the board walk from the second avenue pier where it starts at. The family kingdom amusement park is only about 100 yards away. Worth every penny.

Oceanfront Budget

Great view of beach. Room was cleaned daily and nothing was touched that didn't belong to the hotel. I was very comfortable staying here and had plenty of space in the room. The indoor pool that was advertised was closed as well as the hot tub, which is why I booked this particular hotel. And the balcony door couldn't be closed from the balcony due to having only a deadbolt to hold it closed. Other than these minor inconveniences I really enjoyed my stay.

Nice location. That's about it.

Pros: The view.
Cons: Housekeeping and maintenance.
Location: Set right on the beach near restaurants and shops. That was the selling point for me. Unfortunately the trash and condition of the room was yuk.
Housekeeping and maintenance appear to be the biggest challenges for this hotel. When we arrived, the microwave did not work, there was a snack bag on the floor, and an unwelcome surprise was in the toilet. Also, there were just two bath towels, one hand towel and one wash cloth. The front desk staff supplied extras when asked, but you're going to have to ask (as we did every day during our stay). The balcony overlooking the beach was by far the selling point of the room/suite. Two small older TVs with snowy screens, a shower with mediocre water pressure and a curtain that did not close on either end, and a view from the master bedroom to the dark exterior corridor were disappointing. The main office building was being painted during our stay. Some of that love is desperately needed for the rooms during the off season. Signs indicate that smoking is only allowed outside the buildings, but the elevator reeked on several occasions and butts were dropped on the floor. Breakfast was okay if you're into carbs: waffles, cereal, toast and muffins. Staff did keep breakfast items well stocked. The Econo Lodge has a long way to go to compete with better economy hotels in the area.

The proximity to the beach overrides all the disappointments in the actual hotel. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Though the hotels promotions and pictures online are misleading. The décor and furniture are severely outdated. The stucco and paint on the walls look like it was done in a hurry. Our alarm clock did not work and the tv in the bedroom was from the early 90s at best. Reception was mostly static. Our view was amazing considering we were on the ground floor and looking out across the pool. The continental breakfast leaves much to be desired. It has very few options and doesn't change. There is nothing fresh so you better like toast or cold cereal. There was a coffee pot in our room but no sugar or creamer. The view from our bedroom window was a stunning view of a hallway and vending machines. In all it was nothing like the pictures they post online. Also we were greeted at the counter not by a hotel employee but by an annoying woman trying to coerce us into a time share meeting. I love the area and the proximity to the beach but this hotel just isn't worth the money. I could have received the same experience at a motel a block away for 1/10 of the price.
