The 231-room property is located on the north end of the hotel strip. Its location between the residential area and the rest of the strip provides guests with privacy and tranquility, but the property is still conveniently located to all of the area’s best shops, attractions and restaurants.
Rooms come in a variety of styles, ranging anywhere from three-bedroom oceanfront suites with fully equipped kitchens, four TV’s and four beds, to smaller hotel-style rooms with one bed, a small refrigerator and coffeemaker. Standard amenities include floor-to-ceiling windows, cable TV, high-speed Internet access, refrigerators and modern furnishings.
Aside from its excellent location to all the fun and action on the Grand Strip, there are plenty of onsite amenities to keep families happy. Kids can enjoy three pools, two lazy rivers and a total of five hot tubs. There’s also an onsite restaurant and fitness room for families to enjoy. In the summer, check out special kid’s programs that include activities like beach soccer, Frisbee games, arts and crafts, Capture the Flag and hair wrapping.

It's been 2 yrs since I visited Myrtle Beach for our church conference. This time around we got a 2 bedroom condo with 2 bathrooms, dishwasher, 3 TVs and a washer and dryer. They were once again accommodating with bringing my mother an accessible toilet seat, the doors are still hard to get a wheel chair in, but we managed. Our room was comfortable, and had to me some minor problems. The curtain in both bedrooms was missing a curtain hook or the place where the curtain hook is supposed to go. I bought chip bag clips to hold the curtains closed, some brighter curtains would be a nice update for this room. The dryer takes FOREVER to dry clothes, though I only put 2 or 3 pieces of clothing in it at a time. Big thumbs up to Heidi, she did an awesome job cleaning our room, though I'll probably skip housekeeping next go around. You can save money by not using housekeeping. All in all we had an enjoyable stay.
Reese and Marvin were very helpful checking in and answering all of our questions. Everyone had such an amazing attitude and we had a wonderful experience! Also Bruce in maintenance installed a dvd player in no time! Highly recommend
