We love Dayton House. The location is perfect and within walking distance of everything we need or want to do. We love the relaxed atmosphere and the service. Shannon at the front desk was super helpful to us by showing us different types of rooms, due to us not needing such a big room in the coming years, due to our children growing up and moving on. Everyone was so nice and helpful. We love Dayton House. Sure there are things that could improve, but I think in this current environment, everyone is doing the best that they can, with the staff that they have. Can't wait to see what years in the future look like spending time at Dayton House every year that we are able to.

TNSteelersFan, thank you for permitting the Dayton House to serve as the backdrop for family's beach visits. After two generations of service to coastal visitors you would think we would know all there was to know about providing perfect vacations, but our various teams continue to learn, review trends and make adjustments. Our hospitality journey is always one of discovery. We appreciate your understanding and thoughtfulness. As you have observed, much has transpired in the last two years. Myrtle Beach tourism flourished in 2021. Our region, nay the world, has had to contend with a labor shortage. The challenges have been unlike anything we have witnessed in two generations of doing business. In spite of this, our local community has put their best foot forward. The Dayton House has invested several million in updates over the past five years. Additionally, there are several more large scale projects that will occur over the winter. We understand the desire for improvements and are making this happen at a sustainable pace. It is such a delight for us to read that your family loves the Dayton House. Our team strives to make this property a home away from home for travelers. Like you, we are excited about the future and what it has in store for all of us. Thank you for being such loyal patrons.

The beds had no decorative spreads/comforters on them--a blanket between two sheets. The ceiling was under repair from an obvious leak, patch work looked really bad. The building needs to be totally renovated. The group of hotels that they were passing off as a resort were really a bate & switch deal(maybe only one building was updated). If you wanted to go to the pool, you had to cross the street & go to the back of the building. Lots of street noise--not a good sleeping room. The breakfast was really not worth the effort of getting out of bed to go across the street to yet another building to eat. Yuck, yuck all around from the check-in! Not staying there again.

Deedeeve, thank you for staying with us this autumn. It is clear that beach enthusiasts were ready for coastal time in 2021. The Grand Strand saw visitations like no other year on record. The Dayton House Resort is the ideal one stop shop for those looking to enjoy their hard earned time off. With five separate guest buildings offering suites, standard rooms and efficiency units there are options for a wide range of vacation tastes. The four oceanfront buildings each provide different water amenities. From the North Building, patrons may relax in the small outdoor hot tub or a swimming pool which is half indoor and half outdoor. Next door, in the Middle Building, is the popular outdoor zero entry swimming pool. The South Building features a large outdoor hot tub. A short stroll to the Suites Building reveals an outdoor lazy river, large indoor hot tub, indoor swimming pool and indoor kiddie pool. As if all of these water amenities were not enough, the Atlantic Ocean is conveniently located steps away from each of these four buildings. For guests that enjoy hearing the sound of the surf, but wish to remain dry we offer a two+ acre oceanfront tanning lawn. Yellow lawn umbrellas, loungers, chairs and tables line the lawn and have been a favorite for many years. A fitness center and coin operated guest laundry can be found in the West Building, across the street from the ocean. Breakfast is served daily in the Rose Room. Items such as scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage, granola, yogurt, boiled eggs, coffee, grits, assorted juices, fruits in syrup and waffle station are available to guests. In the event that there are special dietary restrictions or folks merely wish to venture out for a change of meals, the food and beverage team is happy to provide recommendations. The Yella Umbrella Poolside Bar and Grill (seasonal) is also a great feature. This venue offers a menu which includes burgers, sandwiches, wraps, pizza, fries, adult beverages and more. Updates have been made to our property on a large scale beginning in Winter 2017. The South Building, our most comprehensive project, featured new bedding, dining furniture, window coverings, kitchen appliances, paint, carpet, chairs, tubs, vanities and lighting. The following winter the Suites Building was privy to new paint, carpet, 50 inch living area television, stainless kitchen appliances (stove, microwave, fridge), kitchen cabinets, window coverings, sofa and chair. One year later the Middle, North and West Buildings saw the introduction of new paint, carpet, artwork, countertops, lighting. Additionally, the Middle Building received new headboards, dressers and dining furniture. It has been such a joy to see the changes that have been made to guest accommodations. The Dayton House Resort thanks you one more Deedeeve for being our guest. We also appreciate your desire to share details from your stay. Please know that we would love for you to return, and hope that you will think of our resort as your home away from home.

The room was so dirty, paint peeling, had dirt, wasn’t vacuumed. It was so disgusting we canceled our stay. Do not fall for newly renovated advertisement. To top it off, they refused to cancel our deposit. Do not stay here.

Nancy, we appreciate your initial desire to stay with the Dayton House Resort. 2021 was not only the year of the coastal aficionado, but also for the new resident. Myrtle Beach was recognized as the fastest growing city in the entire U.S. for 2021, 2022. Not only do folks want to vacation here, but they want to make this area their home. What a wonderful testament to all things Grand Strand. The room attendant team begins their day at 8:30 am and provide trash and towel service only. However, if a need is experienced or the unplanned occurs our folks are here to help. By contacting the guest services team they are able to coordinate action on your behalf and to see that the proper attention is given. It is important that patrons are made to feel comfortable and we strive to provide that sort of atmosphere. Our property has undergone extensive updates beginning in winter 2017. The South Building, our most comprehensive project, featured new bedding, dining furniture, window coverings, kitchen appliances, paint, carpet, chairs, tubs, vanities and lighting. In late 2018 the Suites Building was privy to new carpet, paint, 50 inch living area television, stainless kitchen appliances (stove, fridge, microwave), kitchen cabinets, window coverings, sofa aa well as chair. One year later the Middle, North and West Buildings saw the introduction of new paint, carpet, artwork, countertops, lighting. Additionally, the Middle Building received new headboards, dressers and dining furniture. Our renovations are not a ploy, but rather something to enjoy. It is unfortunate that you chose not to stay. Our resort provides an array of amenities that we feel would have been beneficial to your beach experience. Thank you for being our guest and we hope that you will consider our property during future visits.

First of all the attendants at the desk helped us find our way there. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by the ladies at the office. We waited till our room was ready by swiming in the pool and walking on the beach. When our room was ready we were happy to find a clean room ready for us to enjoy. We asked for no attendant to clean or make beds for the week. We had plenty of towels to get us through the week. Hot water was abundant everyday. AC worked well. We had a beautiful view of the ocean. I would gladly book again. Cleaning crew was always friendly and courteous.

This place is awesome! The staff was friendly and very professional there was no hassle with checking in at all. There was plenty of parking spaces. However on the second level I think there should be more lighting. For my overall experience I give it for stars. The breakfast was alright the same thing everyday but it's free.
