"Unexpected bar activity at night."
Although the hotel itself is in fair condition for such an "Old" building there were some negative issues with the room to include what appeared to be dark mold on the ceiling and a broken air conditioner. The most disturbing thing about our stay (we have young kids) is that the bar in the front foyer starts up around 4pm and the drunks are obnoxious, […] loud and rude to passing patrons in the lobby. There is no way to bypass this bar after 4pm if you want to take the family out for dinner and return to your room. If the bar contained the party goers it would be fine but they populate the lobby area as they become more intoxicated. I love a vibrant atmosphere from time to time but I was definitely not prepared to explain this raucous behavior to my 8yo twins. I suppose if one had no kids and was there to "hook up" this would be the best hotel in Myrtle Beach, however unless I was offered a Free stay I would NEVER stay there again with my kids. Saving grace during the day is that the Breakfast Buffett is really good (although the A/C there wasn't working either) and the Staff is very nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Over all good experience. Staff was very friendly. Room was ok, needed some repairs, Hotel also. Lobby got very adult after hours, our 11 yr. old heard some alcohol induced slurs !! Over all good stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was wonderful. In general all was good with one exception. The bed mattresses needed replacing 10 years ago. They were the most uncomfortable mattresses I have ever and I underline ever attempted to sleep on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This hotel is a must visit resort"
The hotel itself was beautiful! I loved the different pools and the outside decks as well. the scenery was awesome. my only complaint was the room was nasty and not clean at all. I had to switch my first room out because the toilet was stopped up and overflowing, the next room they gave me, the floors was dirty the bed linen was dirty as well like as […] if it wasn't changed from the last guest who stayed. room service did not provide fresh wash clothes or towels for the whole 3 days. But over all the hotel, pool, spa, outside decks and location was the best part. I enjoyed myself and I would go back Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for Kids or Families"
I stayed at the Sands Ocean Club on the last weekend of spring break for my kids. The pools were all suited for adults, with no kids play pools or anything for kids. The guests in the hotel were more interested in the hotel bar, and drunks were all over the place. The hotel features an indoor and outdoor bar, and would be good for a party person, but […] not family friendly at all. The rooms were standard for a 2 star type place, and the staff was friendly.

"Overall great. Will visit again"
Check in was easy and friendly. Housekeeping leaves alot to be desired. Very slow. Location and overall experience was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent bellmen, room horrible"
The bellman couldn't have been more polite and helpful however The room (room #1026) was horrible The sheets had stains(called left voicemail for new sheets and never got them, even when maid service came STILL didn't change sheets) Mattress was so old you could feel the springs, and closet door was off the hinges and sitting in the closet.Genuine Expedia guest review
My first dissapontment was finding out they no longer had an airport shuttle...cost me $150 to rent a car. Room was dirty...hallways smelled..pools were filthy. Buffet breakfast was OK. The hotel was conveniently located near the venue where I was attending a wedding.The only other positives were that our room had a balcony overlooking the ocean, but […] while standing on it, I almost got hit in the head by a cigarette butt that someone had thrown from a higher floor. Also, the lady who ran the store(s) was very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonable Place-Reasonable Price"
I have stayed now at four resorts in the Myrtle Beach so far. With the exception of the maintenance and upkeep of the facilities being just okay, I thought that my overall experience was quite good. The price was the least that I've ever paid of the places that I've tried (although thre may have been a special price that they had in April). Most rooms […] have an ocean view due to the shape of the building. The fitness room was pretty minimal but had most of what I needed although the presence of only one treadmill required that I occasionally wait for its use. There are no free weghts. The sauna was not working at the time. It was clear that the room had not been renovated for a while but it was thoroughly clean and comfortable. Maid service was a little inconsistent and i had to ask for some items once. I really like the fact that they give you coffee every day for the coffee maker. The pool and hot tub are both indoors which, in April when it's raining, is actually nice. The live band that they had outside playing daily at the bar was a nice touch and very entertaining. I did not try their restaurant for breakfast or dinner but, for lunch, the food was good and reasonably priced. But buy your smoothies at the bar, they are cheaper. Night life at the indoor bar appeared to be very popular (and a bit loud) but I can't comment further since I didn't participate. The people at the front desk were always very polite and very helpful. Overall, a good experience and I would definitely return there if the price was similar to my last stay.

Over all good stay at this resort. Definitly a good place to stay if you aren't using the hotel for anything more than sleeping. Right on the beach. Great staff! The rooms were small but absolutely worth the priceGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ocean view is great, hotel itself is old, worn out"
We were allowed to check in early (nice). The suite (2 rooms, 2 beds + sofa) was rather unimpressive, especially for the price. EVERYTHING was very old - walls, faucets, kitchen doors hanging down or even falling off (seriously), coffeemaker not working well, kitchen utensils scratched up, etc. No HBO on TV (what?). My iPad could never connect to internet, […] I tried many times. No disposal in the sink (we paid for the full kitchen to cook at home). Soon after checking in, there was a water pipe breakage - no water for about 2 hours! meanwhile we cannot use the toilet, cannot wash hands, cannot make coffee, etc. Second day after housekeepers cleanup - no TV remote (found later under the end table!), no towels at all! The toilet got clogged up - had to wait for the serviceman to come and clear it. Sink faucets dripped, at the end of the stay the shower faucet was leaking badly. Bathtub was not draining well. We let kids use the 2 beds in the bedroom and my wife and I slept on the sofa in the main room - the sofa was PAINFUL to sleep on, sharp metal springs and tubes, I suffered through 2 nights. The front desk lady probably knew me by my voice on the second day, I can to make so many calls :) but she was nice and tried to be helpful, and I tried to stay calm :) We got free breakfast for 2 days when we complained about the no water situation, so at least we did not suffer for nothing. But the whole experience was rather negative, we were very glad to be done with this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel close to the beach but old."
had a 1 night stay. Recieved a room with partial beach view. tha balcony was right up the restaurant ceiling wich was very dirt. The room needed a renovation. The TV was a huge black box and didnot work well. Called and they send maintenance people right away who changed it for another huge old TV that worked better.Genuine Expedia guest review
My family has a time share and I am always very pleased with Sands Ocean but my husband and I went for our 5 year anniversary (weekend) and we were very pleased. We will make it a point to stay here every time we come to Myrtle Beach.Genuine Expedia guest review

"No Respect For The Handicap"
This hotel has no respect for the handicap. They allow anyone park in the handicap parking spaces. The spaces are directly in front of the hotel in their view. I was told by the hotel manager that they do not monitor the handicap spaces I was told that they only monitor to see that each vehicle has a hotel parking pass or they will be towed. Any vehicle […] parked in a handicap zone without a handicap placard is the responsibility of the local police.if all the hotel parking space handicap on non-handicap were full, it is up the paid hotel guest to find alternate parking in the local area if available. The hotel guests are responsible for any parking fees. When I complained to the hotel night manager, he simply said it was not their problem. They were only there to check-in an check out guest and that I would heve to complain to the Home Owners Association (HOA) the next day. This is the same manager that was saving 2 parking spaces in front of the hotel for 2 of his friends. He told me if I parked their he would have me towed. The room was dirty, the service was lousy, several light fixtures were missing bulbs. I will never stay at this hotel again. I had to park about 1/2 mile from the hotel and had to pay a $5.00 fee for overnight parking. I'm a 100% disable veteran and I can barley walk 50 feet let alone a 1/2 mile.

This hotel was awful, our stay was very unpleasant. We arrived checked in, when we entered our room the first thing that hit us was the smell, the room smelled awful and old.. The floor was dirty, carpet had several stains, the curtains was dirty and smelly. The balcony door wouldn't lock, in the master room the comforter had a big stain on it, when […] we tried to call room service the phones was faded we couldn't see the front desk number. Finally we got front desk they were so rude they said they couldn't change our room, we asked could they at least send housekeeping up they said ok. An hour went by we called again still no housekeeping finally after two hours someone came with a comforter handed it to us and left didn't clean. Our first night was awful, every place was booked.. The second night they changed our room still dirty but a little cleaner than first room.. Staff wasn't friendly at all, hotel dirty not worth money, I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Horrible trip.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mark off choice list"
When we arrived, our room was an ocean front on the top floor. When entered the room at 10pm, the connecting room was very loud with a party and the linen on our beds were disturbed as if someone had been jumping around on them! Once alerted, the front desk placed us in an oceanview room on the 11th floor. The difference in cost was offset by two breakfast […] buffets for free. The lobby at night was loud from the crowd in the adult lounge. Not impressed at all. The check-in girls were very helpful. Room had hair everywhere, found bottle tops on the floor.

"Nice place, but needs update!!"
Nice hotel/resort, but really needs an update. The Kitchen looked like something out of the 70's. Staff was great, as was th location. Room was pretty clean, and the beachfront area was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Much better than I expected!"

"WILL STAY AGAIN FOR SURE"
GREAT PRICE FOR THE NIGHT AND OCEAN FRONT WITH GREAT INDOOR POOL, ONLY PROBLEM NOT ENOUGH PILLOWS OR TOWELS LOLGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed this past weekend for our anniversary. Great pool area with Ocean Annie's beach bar with live music during the day. Should consider no kids allowed due to the majority of adults that stay there. The few children there were rambunctious in pool area due to little else for them to do. Overall great stay and will go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"great views, great bar, but neighbors really close"
We stay often in N. Myrtle and this hotel was available for weekend. View and this part of beach very clean and really great. Restaurants very convenient, but nothing to remember as to the food. Beach bar is a plus just for fun listening to music and relaxing. Room clean and bed semi comfortable. Parking is a pain, but is close by. . Could hear people […] next door and when they showered, it was like in your own bathroom. Room coffee which I like in the morning, was the lousiest tasting coffee I Have ever brewed. I guess they want you to go down to restaurant first thing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach that you could never leave"
Great hotel. You could do everything you would like to do on vacation and never leave the resort. It has 2 bars and a restaurant (I only ate breakfast there) great staff. Everyone was very friendly. Only downfall about this hotel are the rooms are a bit outdated. I had a blast. I normally don't give reviews but I had a great time at this hotel and would […] recommend it to anyone who goes to myrtle beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable and convenient"
I was very pleasantly surprised by how nice the hotel was, and how little it cost to stay there. The hotel staff is excellent. They have a small gym downstairs with a tv which was amazing. They had a lot too offer. I was pleased with everything, except for the hot tub which wasn't as hot as I would have liked.Genuine Expedia guest review
You can tell that they have tried to update the lobby area, but I was disappointed when I got off of the elevator. The hall smelled terrible. A mix of smoke and mildew. The room was pretty much the same. While it was clean, it was just old and smelly. It had old comforters and blankets that you would have seen in a hotel 15 years ago. When expedia compared […] it to a holiday inn express or comfort inn--they could not be more off. Most of the larger hotel chains are now doing the white bedding now that just seems cleaner to me. For us, it was a short trip, so just made the best of it--went Walmart that was close by and got some sheets and fabreeze. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"not as good as it used to be"
Stayed at this resort several times in the past, but always on the other side of the building. This time the room had walls as thin as paper. Was kept awake and woke up by gentleman in room next to us. The bed's were awful, could feel the coils! We won't be returning to this resort again. Very Disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on the beach"
This is an older style hotel, needs some updating but very efficient and friendly staff. Right on the beach!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I'll be back!!"
Upon arrival the staff held the door, exchanged greetings and check in was quick and easy. I arrived at approximately almost three hours prior to check in and the room was ready to go! Took a long walk on the beach, had lunch - took in the sites and sounds and was comfortable for the entire stay. Of note, I'm an early riser and went to breakfast around […] eight and when I returned at ten'ish my room had been cleaned! Excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great price for location"
This place was nothing fancy and could probably use some renovation, but provided comfortable beds and a clean room right on the beach for an unbeatable price. I'd definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
