“Superior staff!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This is our golf group's second trip to the Grand Dunes. As many have mentioned the hotel is attractive, beautifully furnished and the rooms are spacious and immaculate. It is a wonderful base of operations for 4 astute (AKA picky) female golfers. You get to stay in lovely surroundings and can choose from hundreds of golf courses. But let's talk about what sets this hotel apart....the staff. Customer satisfaction, guaranteeing you the best vacation experience, is the focus of their service. From the valet service upon arrival, front desk, to housekeeping and restaraunt staff, you will encounter a group of people anxious to serve. I would be remiss if I did not mention the concierge, Bill. Do not hesitate to seek his advice regarding your stay. He will be sure to help in any way he can. And Bruce, thank goodness you had the insight to marry such a lovely woman and thank you for your shuttle service. But my one and only complaint is for the Chef. Why do you make the food so great that we preferred to have the majority of our meals at the hotel. Highly recommend the Grand Dunes and cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Room choice depends on your likes. Last year we overlooked marina and this year intercoastal. While...

We stayed at The Marina Inn for our wedding, along with 50 of our guests. Everyone could not stop saying what an amazing time they had and how nice the hotel was. Everyone working there was so friendly and helpful. It was by far the best hotel stay I've ever had. If I could rate this place 6 stars, I would. The rooms were beautiful, the pool area was amazing, and the food at the restaurant was delicious! We will definitely be back! Thanks for everything.

Room Tip: If you're traveling with a group, the hotel offers 2B/2B and 3B/3B options. My father and siste...

We spent 3 nights here mid April. It was a great time! Top class in every way. The grounds themselves were so nice it was fun to just hang out at the pool or even on our balcony. Great food as well. I'd highly recommend the anchor cafe on the property. Especially for happy hour! Half off appetizers and cheap beers and an amazing view!

Thank you AdamSC123 for sharing your recent vacation experience at the Marina Inn. As you confirmed, the Marina Inn is an awesome resort to just hang out. You can do everything or do nothing! Dining choices are upscale to casual. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Anchor Cafe's happy hour during your visit. We hope that you also experienced Reflections Bar - located just off the lobby at the Marina Inn where you can also enjoy Happy Hour from 4 - 7pm with amazing views of the marina!

We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite with 2 full baths with a view of the water and boats. This is by far the largest suite we have stayed in (1200 square feet) and one of the nicest with a full kitchen and nice beds and bathrooms.

The location is very convenient to most areas in Myrtle Beach. A 10 min drive to Barefoot Landing and 10 mins to Broadway on the Beach. The shuttle to the private beach worked for us. Downtown to the ferris wheel and the teen club is closer to 20 minutes by car. My teenage daughter and her friend like that area better, but most adults would prefer this location as it is convenient to shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Maid service was late in the day, but the staff was professional and curteous to us.

We received a special deal from Marriott if we sat thru a 90 min timeshare presentation. We saved over 50% of the regular price. I would say that it was worth the 90 min sales presentation to be at such a lovely resort for a really good price.

Looking forward to getting another good deal next year. This is a 4 star resort. We have stayed on Disney property and the Bay Lake Tower, Boardwalk, and the Grand Floridan and this resort gives Disney's a run for their money. You will be happy hear. We ate at the local restaurants and did not eat at the hotel. My only complaint is that I was not happy with the coffee in the room. We are picky coffee drinkers and have a Keriug K Cup machine. We stopped at Dukin D and McDonalds and had their coffee.

Room Tip: If you go offseason, the prices are better and it is less crowded and crazy. There were specials on...

Greetings JeffSTrumbullCT - Thank you for sharing your Marina Inn experience. As you mentioned, the Marina Inn is a perfect choice for families that enjoy rooms providing ample space and top amenities. Our location is ideal if you prefer close proximity to all of the activities that Myrtle Beach has to offer, yet not in the middle of the of the noisy conjestion that is associated with many of the attractions and nightlife.

We look forward to your future visit!
