As with many places on the Grand Strand this resort has some age on it and it shows in places but overall we like it. They have a huge staff and are always working on the property. The location, waterpark, and ammenities are great. It's not perfect but its not deserving of the 1 and 2 star reviews some give it. My biggest negative is the parking fee. Its a bit cheesy for a nice place to charge you nightly for a parking spot. Do they expect you to walk there?

The hotel was a bit tired, but the excellent service, cleanliness, and the money we paid were acceptable. Book an oceanfront suit so you really can enjoy the proximity to the beach. The Breakfast selection does not stand up to the price we paid for it.

The property is outdated. My room was old, muggy, and mildewed with old furniture. Disgusting! By far the worst hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The only good thing about my room is that it was ocean front. Great view, but terrible accommodations.

My aunt introduced me to this resort a few years ago and it’s been my go to place since. The rooms are clean and well kept, the staff are prompt in making sure to accommodate our needs as well as making sure we were satisfied with our stay. I really appreciate knowing they value their guest… that’s not always easy to find in a hotel!
