We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for 30 years, but have more or less stayed on the "strip". We decided this year to go further north which brings us to Ocean Forest. The building is not new but it is kept very clean and the staff is very friendly and hospitable. We rented a 1 bedroom suite which advertises that it can accomodate up to 6 people. We were one couple and found it to be ok for us but there is no way six people could spend a week in it without getting on each others nerves. The bedroom consists of 2 double beds, which is supposed to accomodate 4 people, there is no way 4 people could sleep in this bedroom. Take our advice if there are more than 2 of you get a 2 bedroom suite. The northern end of Ocean Blvd, is much quieter that the strip, the beaches are not nearly as crowded and we found there were more seniors in this area, so it is very quiet and peaceful. The grounds are kept immaculate with lots of greenery and flowers. We were oceanfront on the 20th floor so we had fantastic views of the ocean both north and south. The pool is quite large with lots of chaises and we divided our time between the pool and the beach. The indoor parking is not the greatest, the ramps are very narrow so it makes parking somewhat of a difficult task. There is however an outdoor parking lot that is used for vans or pickup trucks, anything that is oversized. Do not park your car here if it isn't a van or truck, you will get a notice from the hotel that you are not allowed to park there. All in all it is a pleasant hotel to stay at, the prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly. The only negative thing we could say is that people smoke and bring alcohol to the pool which in our opinion is not acceptable. We don't know if there is a rule against this but if there isn't the hotel should make a rule about this.
