“Great hotel located in a quiet area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

Found a deal on Groupon for the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. We stayed two nights at this lcoation and loved every moment of it. The hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in. We were given a room on the fourth floor in the Harbour Tower. We lucked out and got a view of the inlet. The staff was extremely friendly. We did not try any of the restaurants so I can not comment on that.

Only two down falls I can think of. First the self parking is on the first floor and have to walk up the stairs to get to an entrance. They do offer free valet parking though. Second is they still have a flat screen CRT TV. Thought by now they would have updated the TV to HD LCD but not just yet. They did have a great selection of TV stations including HBO and 70 other basic cable channels. Plus they have a DVD player in the room already connected to the TV. The "Grande" room does have a refrigerator and a small safe (will not fit a 15" laptop). The room does not have a microwave though.

Hopefully if I ever come back to Myrtle Beach there is another deal for this Hotel. Regular price is kind of high and I may be tempted to pay it.

We stayed here in conjunction with a family wedding that was on the premises. Our experience was very good. We were impressed with the suite and how well equipped it was. We plan to return with our kids and grandkids in the future! Shuttle to the beach is great and overall, the service was excellent.

Room Tip: We had my 82 year old mother with us and failed to request a room with grab bars in the bathroom. N...

I have stayed at various properties in MB but this by far is the most intimate and nicest to date. The staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The views of the Intracoastal Waterway cannot be beat if you prefer a quite environment. Beautiful lobby and rooms with all the amenities that you could possibly want. Nice restaurants and bars are an added bonus.

Room Tip: Ask for a marina or Intracoastal Waterway view as some rooms overlook the pool.

We are pleased to hear, charlestoncat, that out of all of the properties that you have stayed in Myrtle Beach, the Marina Inn is the nicest. As you have experienced, the Marina Inn is unique in that we are away from the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach but yet still close to all of the top activities that Myrtle Beach has to offer. However, you can just stay on site and have everything you need. We hope that you will visit usagain soon!

My first time viisting Myrtle Beach and I coudn't have been more lucky to come across this hotel. Everything was absolutely perfect. Me and my fiancee have visited a lot of great cities but this was the best vacation because of the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. The service was friendly and professional. The suite was clean and all the amenities were relaxing. Every staff member was helpful, which made your experience so unique. I just left last week and can't wait to go back. Now I know where I will have my wedding. We will be back soon.

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...
