You get what you pay for. It's somewhere to lay your head at night. There was some sketchy people, always cat calling. Staff was very informal and you get charged an additional 56$ for a resort fee? What resort?

Hotel was pretty nice. It was right on the beach had a great view of the ocean. Nice outdoor pool and indoor pool. They also had a nice outdoor baby pool. The elevator was scary and would break down so i walked to the top and down being pregnant that sucked.

I stayed at Viking because it was one of the most affordable places online at the time. It's kind of dirty and a old, but I never had high standards in the first place. What I regret is booking the room online because when I arrived I realized I could have just booked a hotel when I arrived at a...

The desk clerk was really nice. We checked in at 2.00pm. The desk clerk could tell my husband was disabled, so she helped us get to our room early. It is inexpensive ,no frills. It has analog tv. It is right on the beach front and it has rooms large enough for families with kids, that otherwise could not afford...

Myrtle Beach motel located on the beach. inexpensive, no frills, but right on the beach for under $45.00 a night total. Walking distance to beach dive bars, expensive hotels, cheap eats, etc. What more do you want?

If you don't mind a bit of sand and some self housekeeping, this place is good for the price. Nothing fancy, doable. Once you you realize it is not a 5 star establishment you can go on to enjoy the pool, the balconies and access to the beach. This place is always full. The staff are nice, and yes, it...
