I booked at the Diplomat based entirely on price and availability. I had concerns due to the lack of internet reviews about the hotel and was extremely happy with my choice. Inexpensive rooms directly on the beach. The room was quite large with a kitchenette and a less than perfect bathroom. My bed was comfortable. I was on the second...

I stayed at the Diplomat for a few days while visiting friends in Myrtle Beach. If you're looking for a great beach front location that's under $60 / night then consider the Diplomat. The boardwalk is right there. Mama Mia's Pizza is next door and they serve great pizzas and burgers. The Diplomat is family run and family oriented.

The room is clean, and big for it's price. Can fit 4 peoples since they provide 2 queen beds for the room, perfect for backpacker. The wifi is excellent, the staff is nice. Only took a few minutes to Broadway (by car). You enjoy the beach, district, boardwalk and even the skywheel by walk from the motel. You can enjoy...

Spent the weekend here for a little pier fishing. Perfect location. Could walk to 2nd Avenue pier and all the shops. Our room was oceanfront, but you couldn't open the window. It seems to have been updated recently. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. Loved the fridge, microwave, closet, and huge tub. Can't beat it for the price. We'll be...

I stay here a lot. The service is great and they are working on updating the rooms. The swimming pool was clean and they had some new chaises. The room was clean and comfortable, although I do wish they would update the bathrooms. In whole, I really like this place and hope the owners keep it open for a long...

I was looking for a decent place on the ocean that wouldn't kill my wallet...Found it! For what it is, it's pretty darn nice. We had a great time and the room was just fine. Sure, the appliances could be replaced and carpet could definitely go...but it's great for the money compared to the other hotels in the area charging...
