"No tower"

08/11/2018

Tower requested but not given. Bill stuck out under dr in express checkout where anyone in hall could have gotten it. Other then check in and whoever put bill under dr rest of staff was nice. The lady at breakfast was fantastic. Breakfast though could have benefited with more choices like bacon, boiled egg, or milk other then whole

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We checked your account and did see where we upgraded you to a larger suite in the tower building! Maybe they moved you after you checked in? In that case, we do our best to honor requests but in some cases we are unable to do so.

Great location off the beachfront with good breakfast. Great value on a budget. My only down fall was the locks on the front door and patio were broken and they would not lock other than the security locks. The rooms need some updates from broken wood on doors and badly stained shower

We have now visited BW Ocean Sands Beach Resort numerous times in 2018 for a total of 47 nights. We would not keep returning if we were not so satisfied in this modest but accommodating facility. Good location, good housekeeping, friendly staff and nice breakfast buffet. When you go there, you want to stay!

"Right On The Beach, Nice Pool, Facility A Bit Dated, Parking Is Difficult"

3
24/10/2018

REASON FOR STOP: Couldn't check into our condo until the following day. COMMENT ON RATING: The parking and elevator problems force me to reduce this from 4 to 3 stars. PROS: All the three buildings are right on the beach. Ocean-front rooms in at least one of the buildings have small but adequate balconies. My room was in good condition although could use some updating. Unlike my previous visit three years ago, check-in was fast, efficient. CONS: Parking is a nightmare. The (only) elevator in the 9-story south tower is “iffy”. It was problematic during a prior stay three years ago, and broke down during this stay. I overheard other guests who are repeat visitors say this is an ongoing problem. To be fair, it was repaired pretty quickly. There are three buildings. It is not explained on the web site and it was difficult to obtain information about the differences, but the differences are significant. The buildings appear to have been built at different times and by different owners. What they call the south tower (and where I stayed) is the best choice. The actual original building, now called the north tower (actually only three stories) is second. I would recommend against what they call the annex. The bed was not very comfortable. Some of the common areas are a bit worn. I was unable to log onto the Wifi. It was not important enough for me to call the support line. COMMENT: On an unseasonably warm day, the A/C struggled in the afternoon to maintain a comfortable temperature.

"Beach Getaway"

23/10/2018

The whole staff was friendly. It is an older hotel. The bathroom was very tiny. The room was decorated nicely. There was no counter space in the kitchen. Parking was a bear especially if you are travelling with your 88 year old mother. Not very many handicapped parking spaces. Our door leading out to the hall way was very heavy. My mother could not open the door by herself & I had a hard time myself. The breakfast was ok. The breakfast area was not very big. I have stayed at other Best Westerns & this one was not the best. Great view from the balcony.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank so much for staying with us and sharing this nice review. Hotel room doors are a little heavier to ensure closing in the event a guest does not pull them shut. Since they auto-lock, the hotel wants to ensure the safety of their guests!

This hotel is staffed by some of the best hotel crews I have ever encountered.I travel a fair amount with my work and every time I have stayed here the entire staff has been great.From the person who checks me in to the person doing the breakfast in the morning, everyone seems to care that you have a good stay.

We were in town for a funeral and was glad to get a room on such short notice. The hotel was clean and the bed was really comfortable. The staff was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.The breakfast was good also. We have never stayed at a Best Western and we were pleasantly surprised.

Amy and Kirsten at the Tiki bar kept me happy and entertained, they are wonderful. You could switch up the music you have looping only so much Jimmy Buffet one can handle especially the same song. A switch up would be great The location is awesome and quiet. I highly recommend it

"Great Fall get away"

14/10/2018

We visit the North Myrtle beach area every fall and stay at this Hotel. The ocean front room is delightful. Beds are comfortable and there is a kitchenette. Some of the furniture is a little dated, but everything is clean. The breakfast is kept well stocked. The staff are friendly. There are two pools, a hot tub, and the beach is right there.

"ROOMS ARE NOT NON-SMOKING"

2
10/10/2018

Hotel is old and needs updating badly. Don't believe what they say about all rooms are non-smoking. THEY ARE NOT. Everyone is allowed to smoke on the room balconies and the smoke/smell gets in the other rooms and you will not be able to enjoy your balcony (that you have to pay extra for).

"Roaches on my babies clean bottles on the kitchen counter and in the bed"

08/10/2018

When we first got to the room someone had spilled water in the floor and when i used a white towel to clean up the floor was so nasty the towel had a black hand print on it. When I checked in they gave me a pack and play that was disgusting. On our last night there I got up the make a baby bottle and there were roaches crawling on the clean bottles if I would not have seen it I would have gave them to my babies thanking they were clean and they could have got sick from the roaches being on the nipples. Later I laid the baby on the bed and another roach ran from under the pillow. I do not recommend this hotel definitely if you have small kids

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are sorry you did not enjoy the stay. We addressed the numerous complaints you had while you were with us and found only one complaint to be valid ( Yes, the washcloth was dirty after you wiped the floor. The floor should have been cleaner. ). The complaint about roaches could not be verified as the room was inspected and nothing whatsoever was found. We were happy to compensate you accordingly but are sorry to see this compensation was not satisfactory.

"tight parking! Friendly Staff"

03/10/2018

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We asked for & received a fan for our room because the a/c wasn't cooling the room. We moved to a different room after the first night. The receptacle was dangling from the wall in the first room. But, the view was spectacular! The second room was much better - it was in the annex building with 2 cooling units. The 2 units are need because of the layout of the room. The bathroom door was literally coming off the hinges. At some point, the door had suffered water damage (maybe the tub overflowed?). The room appeared clean - just needs upgrading. First room was dorm size frig, second room was normal size frig. One elevator in each building. I am not sure how many floors were in our second building,I think 9. One elevator for that many people means you often must wait. Overall, the staff was very polite & friendly but I would look for a different hotel next we are in NMB.

This is our second time staying at Ocean Sands beach resort for vacation & as always we have the best stay! The staff is more than accommodating to all of our needs. They go above and beyond to make sure we have everything we need. They treat you like family. We're greeted with open arms and that's exactly what you want when staying far from home. They even gave us a late check out since we arrived late in the night. The breakfast included is absolutely wonderful, the housing staff was always asking if we needed anything. The tiki bar by the pool was such an added bonus so we didn't have to go far from the hotel. And considering we left just a day before the hurricane evacuation, the hotel was still up and going and taking care of what needed to be done. We will always choose this hotel for our MB vacations. A big thank you to all the staff & I hope that everyone stays safe during hurricane Florence. Y'all are in my prayers!

We arrived late at night and wanted to stay on the beach. The elevator up to the 8th floor was shaky. When the door opened the carpet looks hideous. I would say RIP it up and paint the concrete. The room we had was 2 queens and a Murphy bed. The tub is discolored, the furniture is old , the stove is rusted. I would be afraid to use it. My advice keep going find something worth the same amount of money.

We stayed here for 5 nights. It was a pretty good place and we had a great view. ( Oceanfront) Service was good and staff was friendly throughout entire stay. Check-in and Check- out was smooth as well. Food was good but line was long if you arrived at last hour. The few things that bothered me was there was only one elevator at the tower building. It was difficult to catch the elevator at times and found myself often using the steps. The other concern was the pillows were old and not very supportive and bed was okay but showing it's age. It was a nice place overall and out central Myrtle which was nice

"Choose another hotel. Pictures are deceiving"

1
19/08/2018

We only had a couple of days for vacation. We were told this hotel had a mandatory 3 day stay and we couldn't find another place on short notice. The pools are old and the water looks dingy. The rooms are from the 1960s. Our linens were soiled and I found hair on the mattress cover! The breakfast included was nice. Powdered eggs and steamed sausage, waffles, fruit. The elevator shook so much, we thought it would drop! There are only 4 parking spots at the hotel. The rest are across the street and a block away. The second night our smoke alarm went off and the room smelled like wires were burning. It took over 15 min.after we called for someone to come check it out. They replaced the smoke alarm and it still stayed on red. They said they were full and had no room to move us to, but they'd call and check on us. No one ever called! We were not moved the next day either. When I complained to management, I was told that I could've left if I didn't feel safe! On a nonrefundable room! My advice, fellow travelers, is to stay away from here. I've stayed in lovely, clean and friendly Best Westerns in Rome, Munich and Venice, but not at North Myrtle Beach SC.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are very sorry you did not enjoy the stay. We do believe that guest perception is extremely important but honestly, yours is the exception. We do have Seven different parking areas and most of the larger lots are just across the street from the buildings. We would have only mentioned you checking out with the unused portion being return if we felt you were that unhappy!

So many things wrong with this hotel!!!! The front door whistled through the night. The air conditioning didn't distribute air properly. The pull out bed was left dirty with sand and debris from previous customer. The roof leaked onto the pullout bed the first night and then they said it was fixed when it wasn't. Second night it leaked again on the same bed. To many people for the amount of breakfast provided. Supplied breakfast for two buildings and they were not able to keep up with the demand.

This hotel may appear older but it has many nice amenities. The breakfast buffet is very nice with a lot of variety. The hostesses are very pleasant. The rooms were also clean and the cleaning crew were accommodating when we needed anything. The pools were very nice and refreshing. It was nice to have an indoor pool during one of our rain days. The kids enjoyed the lazy river alot. IT was wonderful to wake up in the morning and go out on the balcony and thank God while I watch the ocean waves!

environmental staff very prompt in attending our needs, breakfast staff very professional, friendly and kept up with keeping the food stations filled and tidy. Parking was a MAJOR disappointment. 2 of the 4 nights we stayed even the overflow parking was filled. it took almost 1/2 hr to find parking not to mention we had a 15 passenger van and the parking when we did find it was a tight fit.

My wife and I, along with my son's family (6 of us) stayed here, in a suite, for one day while we were awaiting our condo rental in North Myrtle Beach the next day. The location is great, right on the beach. There are actually 3 separate buildings that are part of the Best Western complex. Two of them have pools, and one has a lazy river. We had pizza delivered from a local joint (recommended by hotel staff) and they let is eat it in the breakfast room, which we though was very accommodating. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. The only negative thing I could mention is that the air conditioner didn't do a great job cooling off the suite at night, but it wasn't that bad.

I've been staying at Ocean Sands for the last few years on vacation. I absolutely love this place and its close proximity to area attractions. My only complaint is parking. If you return late at night you have to park quite a bit away in an overflow lot. Other than that I find this to be the perfect place for me and my family!

We had 5 pools and a hot tub and a Tiki bar......Amy is fabulous! We loved our balcony, we sat and drank our coffee while watching and listening to the ocean..it was breathtakingly beautiful. We loved being able to walk right around the corner and be right on the beach. It doesn't get any better than this, it's a wonderful place to stay, that is why we will always book our room here when vacationing at North Myrtle Beach.

Our stay at this resort was not good. My daughter and I were getting into the lazy river and one of the umbrellas from a table got blown away and hit both of us. I got hit in the head with the table umbrella and have a bump on my head, and my daughter has a huge gash on her back. Thankfully, guests at the pool helped us out of the lazy river and got us ice. We went down to the main office and they did NOTHING. They offered my daughter a tiny band aid after seeing the large cut on her back. The manager, Dan C., seemed like he didn't even care and that we were lying and that "there's no way the umbrella could've come out of the ground" even though a pool full of people saw it happen. We went back to the pool after this very shaken. The quality assurance manager came over an hour later with some neosporin and bigger band aids and that was all. The maintenance men and the ladies who helped with the breakfast cared way more than management. This happened on the second day we were staying and the next five days we were there, Dan and the quality assurance manager and all of the other management at the hotel didn't say a word to us. Didn't ask how we were or anything. So we called the best western customer care number and told them about what happened. Well we just called the number again and the hotels statement to what we said was that multiple managers tried to get in contact with us when no one did anything. The people that own the hotel and management are liars and do not care about their clients.

I must say that the staff made this a wonderful experience. Each staff member made us feel as if we were the only customer that they had. The front desk personnel were very accommodating and eager to please. The staff in the breakfast buffet were wonderful especially Fern who went above and beyond to make certain that we had a great experience. Housekeeping was amazing. They worked around our very casual schedule and no matter how late we left the room to go to the beach the room was cleaned and made-up when we returned. Anywhere else that we have stayed housekeeping is done by noon, but not here! I found the bed to be very comfortable. The kitchenette although small was very adequate for our needs. On the negative side - parking was a little scattered and limited, but not a deal-breaker. Access to the beach could be improved with a boardwalk, but the resort is right next to the public beach access which was a little busy. One last thing to mention is that since there are several condos next door instead of more high-rises it made the beach very uncrowded. We always had a great place to set up our umbrella and chairs.

We are a family of 5 and had ample space in the suite we reserved at this property. There were 2 queen beds, a murphy bed, and a sofa bed. The in suite kitchen was exactly as described and the breakfast was better than expected. More than that, the service at this property was excellent. From the moment we checked in, we were impressed with the attitude and helpfulness of the staff. The person at the registration desk was pleasant and provided all the details we needed. Also, unlike most properties, when we were unloading our luggage, there was a staff member (possibly maintenance) that helped us without being asked. This goes a long way when unloading 3 children! And finally, we enjoyed the pool, lazy river and tiki bar. This hotel is great if your family has little ones that can't stay out on the beach long, as it is close enough to the beach to come in frequently without too much struggle.

We hit a few bumps when we first arrived but staff was friendly and corrected the issues without complaint, including putting a new ac unit in one of our rooms. Breakfast was good but gets very crowded the later you go. Pools were small but nice and you can't beat the view of the ocean. The beach was great and you could rent chairs and umbrellas if you wanted. Parking was not an issue once we checked in and were told where the additional parking was located (across the street). Had a nice stay and would recommend to anyone. Clean and well kept if not just a little dated.

Ocean Sands Best Western is a nice hotel in North Myrtle Beach especially good for families as it is right on the beach and has a pool and lazy river. They advertise a free breakfast, but be prepared for a lot of breads, imitation meats, and powdered eggs.Eew! But, you can make a waffle! Used to be a better breakfast and I used to go to this hotel because of it. The hotel is clean and the staff courteous and helpful.

Thanks for staying and sharing this feedback. Sorry you did not enjoy the breakfast. We find it to be one of the largest breakfasts at any hotel in the area.

This place is a great stop for families or retired couples really just anyone looking for a quiet and enjoyable experience on the beach. The kitchenette was fully equipped with everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable and the elevators (even though the resort was busy) was not a long wait at all. The laundry room was good, maybe add a second washer and dryer as it was so busy and hard to catch the units available. We did not have our room cleaned every day but, when we notified them, they cleaned right away and always, always, had plenty of linens/towels. Our stay could not have been more pleasant and we even had road construction going on upon check-in. That was not the hotels' fault but, they sure made up for the inconvenience to their guests by their customer service!

We stayed 3 nights at the Best Western Ocean Sands hotel. We asked for a ground floor room and got room 107. It had 2 queen beds, a mini fridge with freezer, a stove and oven, a microwave, a sleeper sofa, a coffee maker, and a patio with 2 chairs. All the staff were friendly. Breakfast was included, and the staff there did an excellent job of keeping everything restocked. We had a problem with our door lock, and the man (from the front desk) who came to fix it had trouble fixing it, and ended up bringing a whole new door lock and installed it himself. At the Tiki Bar, one day the bartender was Denyal, who was very friendly and told us where to get the cocktail strings of lights that were being used at the bar. Kirstin was the normal bartender there, I think, and she was training someone new. It was a bit too cold to use the outside pools and the beach, but we did use the heated indoor pool and the hot tub. The only drawback was that the street was under construction, so the limited parking was a bit more limited, and you had to approach the hotel via little used side roads. We would stay here again.

Breakfast which is included was even better this year for what ever reason. normally my wife makes her own eggs at least a couple of times during the week but only once this week. Pools were clean and warm. I find the staff at this hotel all to be very friendly and helpful. One person did really stand out and that was Samantha who helped with the breakfast. She went out of her way to make you feel special. At these buffets do you ever expect anyone to take away your dirty dishes or offer to get you something else or even ask you how is it tasting. She did all these things as she was making sure nothing ran out.

We decided to go to Myrtle after tax season for some R&R. We had a very nice stay at the Best Western. The staff was extremely helpful. Our A/C died and within an hour it was fixed. The person in charge of the breakfast went beyond the call of duty. The desk clerks were friendly and helpful. The only downside was the parking and road construction. We saw a great Motown show at the Gts theatre.

I was extremely disappointed with the Best Western. After reading many reviews, I thought all rooms had ocean view/front. We were on the ground level with the construction outside. Furniture needed updating. I expressed my disappointment, front desk offered a different room that was worse. Holes in the furniture and crumbs everywhere. On the plus side, the breakfast & internet were good.

This hotel was right on the water, Overall the property was very clean and neat. The building is dated and so are the rooms, but they were very clean and had a comfortable bed, kitchenette, living room and balcony over looking the ocean. Our house keeping was excellent and very thorough. The hotel offered a complimentary breakfast (everything from eggs/sausage/waffles/yogurt/cereal/coffee. Myrna who was the server at breakfast went above and beyond to make sure every guest had everything they needed.

we had a family vacations in April-2018 and stayed Oceanfront Queen Suite at 7th floor. Room is decent but little bit smelly. Kitchen has very limited utensils and they do not have dishwasher in kitchen so be ready to wash your plates. Bathroom is very small. They have a very tiny hot pool which can accommodate maximum 5 people at a time. Breakfast is good. Overall stay is good but we have other oceanfront resorts at the same price with better amenities.

This is a decent hotel which is located right on the beach. I came here for spring break with my sister and niece. Room was clean and cleaning staff ensured we had enough towels etc. We had a beach front balcony where we could sit, relax and watch the ocean. Breakfast each morning was good, but always the same items with exception of meat provided. The only issue I really found to be a problem was the road work being done around the hotel area, other than that, this was a good hotel to stay at if you want to be on the beach. Note that this is not near the boardwalk as it is located in North Myrtle Beach. I however, found this to be a nicer area to relax in.

This hotel provided a very good room with a great view! It was clean and the beds comfortable. Access to the beach was a few easy steps away. There was road work directly in front, but worth the effort to maneuver around it. The hotel has two buildings, not connected by a breezeway. If you are traveling with someone who has difficulty walking, be sure to request to stay in the main building- that is where the breakfast bar is located. I have stayed in both buildings and they were equally good.

This best western is in the somewhat quieter North Myrtle Beach, but the area is still very built up and busy. We stayed (late March) in the tower building which is right next to the smaller building that has the check in area and breakfast area. The king room we had wasnt bad, but nothing special. The couch was somewhat dated, and the bed squeaked with every move, as did the bathroom door. It was clean though, and our 6th floor room afforded an nice view of the beach from the private balcony. I would definitely not want a room on a lower floor in that building as it overlooks the swimming pool area as well that is between the building and the beach. While breakfast wasn't bad (scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, breads and make your own waffles) the buffet area and room were much too small. We had breakfast there on Thursday and Friday, and it was extremely busy although we were able to grab a table. On Saturday, though, it was completely packed and we decided to head to a local pancake restaurant instead. This was still the off season and the hotel was not full, so I can only imagine how busy it must get when they are full! Another factor to note is that parking is in small lots across the street. It was hard at times to find a spot, so again we certainly would not want to try this during the high season or with excess luggage. We did try drinks at the Tiki bar by the pool. We were not impressed with the bartender who could not offer any recommendations and we noticed when she made our drinks (from the bar menu) she used those little "airline size" bottles of alcohol! Hmm, never seen that at a bar before. We were not impressed. Finally, while we probably would not book here again for the above reasons, we probably would not visit the area again either. I am sure it is great for some, but with the huge number of very tall condo and resort buildings all along the beach, it is just not what we look for. (The outer banks up in North Carolina are much more to our liking where it is much quieter with mostly homes or small hotels with only a couple floors along the beach.)

Was given room 1014 with 2 queen size bed and a pull down bed from the wall. It was really a huge bed that can accommodate a basketball team lol. Me and my husband cooked almost our entire stay since we got a full kitchenette and dining. Would love to go back again when the weather is really hot. The only thing I didn't appreciate is the tub and toilet room is too small. The shower is almost hitting my head and I'm not that tall. Other than that it was really a wonderful experience.

There is street construction along Ocean Blvd. But don't let that influence your choice. While a bit of a challenge for walking and parking, the hotel stay is well worth the minor inconvenience. Staff is great...friendly and helpful. Best breakfast area of any BW Hotels I have stayed in. Management is obviously looking for customer satisfaction as all aspects of our stay were great. Ex: It was windy and quite cool when we were there but the Tiki Bar was manned in case there were customers. Kristen was great! Heard from other customers that they rebook for the coming year before leaving. We will definitely stay here again when we visit North Myrtle Beach!

This property is made of of several unconnected buildings adjacent to one another. You are definitely close to the beach with is a huge bonus. The pool appeared like a nice area with both an inside and outside pool. The rooms were off of an outside corridor instead of an inside hallway. There was no main entrance in which a visitor would have to walk past a front desk prior to heading to a room. Instead anyone could access the rooms right from the street (elevator located at street level). There appeared to be a camera in the elevator but did not feel like a very secure place. The view was amazing. The room was lack luster and was covered in sand. Breakfast was congested. There were several waffle makers but the batter kept sticking and was a mess. The area did not seem well maintained. There was road work in the area making travel to the hotel difficult and then parking was less then ideal. There were only a handful of parking spots at each location (building) and then an overflow lot across the street.

My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend back in July 2017 for the Seether concert, and it was great! Nice, big beds; right by the beach. Good breakfast options. My only issue was that the rooms are a few blocks down the road from where the front desk, breakfast area, fitness area, etc. is. However, it wasn't that big of a deal. Still had a great time, and if we're in the area again, we'd consider staying again!!!

The local attractions were many and a delight indeed!!

My granddaughter, her cheer friend and I came to MB for a Regional Cheer Competition. I chose Best Western because it was closure to our venue and had an indoor swimming pool. This resort had the pool and much more! The small indoor pool was the first truly heated pool I've found in my 40+ years of traveling the country with my Marine Corps husband. The jacuzzi was right next to the pool. It was too cold to use the outdoor pool and lazy river, but they looked very inviting. The beach was just a sand dune away. The suite rooms were clean and we'll maintained. Plenty of hot water for showers and a full kitchen would help reduce the cost of eating out. I highly recommend this Resort for your next trip to beautiful Myrtle Beach.

I recently went to Myrtle Beach to look at a house to purchase. During my stay, we were hit with an ice storm. I ended up staying an extra night(because of the weather). I was worried that I would not have a place to stay but I was assured that it was no problem. Thanks for a great stay!

The Executive Queen suite was a perfect setup for a weekend for 2. The separate bedroom from the living area and kitchen allowed for individual privacy when needed, and the oceanfront view was perfect for enjoying the view of the beach while feeling the warmth of the heaters inside the room. The bedroom provided ample space, and he living room was nice and large. The breakfast provided the typical continental as well as hot meat, potatoes and eggs, and the waffles were the best we've had at a hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful, and made us feel welcome from entry to exit. Looking forward to staying there again soon!

The check-in was very strange as the room given to us was upside down. We moved and were fine. The views and balcony is great! Free WiFi and breakfast. Both very good. Bed was hard with small pillows. Room needs to be updated. Can tell heavy use. "Resort fee" ($6.78) was unnecessary charge but... Overall I would recommend if you are not averse to a place that is a little run down.

The room was too crowded with furniture to sit at the table for dining and coffee pot didn't work. Coffee is the most important part of breakfast and both mornings the coffee was weak as colored water the rest of the breakfast was ok. Dining room also too crowded and no seats available the second morning.. Beds comfortable, service excellent, view perfect and access to beach very easy. Sitting on the balcony was spoiled by smokers. I go to the beach to breathe in the clean, salt air and allowing smoking ruins that experience.

The location is terrible, too much construction and run down buildings near by. The exterior looks dingy, the inside is even worse...dingy linen, dirty mattress covers and the beds have never been moved to clean under or behind. The curtains were dirty, its normally a place I would have never stayed and definitely wouldn't stay again! The only positive is, its ocean front!

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
Sorry you had such a bad stay. However, we did check the unit after you departed and didn't seem to find the same things you were stating? This particular Executive Suite was rented around 25 times since the summer and everyone seemed to enjoy it? There is some road construction out front of our hotel. That said, the city would be responsible for those plans as the hotel has no say in the matter.

I dont consider this hotel a resort. We were put in a room in the tower which was totally separated from main building. The hotel is an older property. We had to park across the street which was torn up because our vehicle wouldn't fit in the deck. That meant we druf the luggage cart across the torn up road to unload our truck and then drag it back across the road to the hotel. The room was very outdated!

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We do have 3 separate buildings which comprise our hotel. The building you were located in has our indoor pool and hot tub. The building right next door is where our breakfast is located. We apologize but we're simply not set up to have breakfast in multiple locations.

I went here last October, and just came back from a trip there again this month. Stayed five nights. Even though the beach is right behind the hotel, my friend and I got a balcony beach side view. Big, clean room, great staff. We had arrived on Friday November 3-8. The second day we were there, hotel staff gave us two free coupons for a free drink at the Tiki bar behind the hotel. The weather was in the upper 70s and sunny. Everything is close to the hotel, and they offer a free continental breakfast. They serve eggs, hashbrowns, sausage, bacon or ham, they rotate the meat choices each day, cereal, English muffins, small biscuits and cinnamon raisin toast. Mini waffle maker. This is overall a great place. They even gave me a come back discount.

This BW is old and out dated, just because you paint over everything doesn't make it new. The toilet bowl was about to fall apart if you leaned in any direction. You would have to kick the font door just to open it. To have a BW of this kind in the North Myrtle Beach Area is shocking. The microwave that sat on the counter next to the sink was to big and about to fall in. The refrigerator was so old the seal around door did work (RM #311). Unless they remodel the entire hotel I would not recommend nor stay there again.

26/10/2017

We stayed at this hotel two years ago and enjoyed our stay here so much that we decided to come back for our 10 year anniversary. The staff here are so courteous and polite. Our room was ready and we were able to check in early, we were greeted with smiles, bag of candy and two bottles of water. When we went to check out our room it was good, but it was on the ground floor in front of the pool. We had a higher floor last time we stayed and better views, with more privacy. I asked John the nighttime manager about switching rooms. I should have specified that I didn't want a ground floor room when I booked it, my fault. I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask, John said the hotel was fully booked for that night, but to check back in the morning to see if someone checked out or didn't show. So after we had breakfast I talked to the day shift manager Toni (I told her we would be willing to pay more if need be)and she was able to find us room with a better view, no extra charge. Thank You so much! The room was clean and stocked with everything we needed. Breakfast was great too. Thank you for your hospitality. We will definitely be back.

This is our 4th stay at this hotel for our couples getaway and we are always pleased. The great service started before we even checked in. We arrived in SC early and called to see if our room was ready and found out that we were not in the building/floor requested. The problem was solved quickly and when we arrived (an hour early) our room was ready. Check in was smooth, room was clean, breakfast was great and staff were really nice and helpful. The manager called on our second day to make sure we were enjoying our stay, there were drink tickets left for us on our door one day and housekeeping was always around when we needed something. Our toilet was a little shaky when we sat down but we didn't complain because it wasn't a major issue. Everyone including the guest were nice and respectful. We are counting down the days until our next trip Fall 2018!!

For the price, we could have booked something different.

We loved the free hot breakfast, the great ocean front room [we were given a free upgrade to a suite], a quiet pool and a family pool, exercise room,hot tub, Tiki bar and a great centralized location for many of our destinations! We saw a great show at the Alabama Threatre and had some wonderful meals in Barefoot Landing about 5 miles away! We walked a block to Molly Darcey's and ate two meals on the outdoor waterfront deck! The prices for an oceanfront room are wonderful in the fall . The weather is perfect and the crowds are light! My husband had never been to the area and he enjoyed our hotel and the Myrtle Beach activities! Thank you to all the employees of this hotel for helping to make our stay memorable! We will be back next year!

"Great Value! Friendly Staff! And the VIEW!! :)"

17/10/2017

All staff, from check in to check out, including kitchen, room service, maintenance and lobby staff, as well as the tiki bar staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The oceanfront view was breathtaking. The breakfast was awesome, and they have both outdoor covered and open patios to enjoy it on, in addition to indoor areas. Delicious breakfast included a meat of the day, eggs, cheese, salsa, waffle and pancake makers, English muffins, biscuits, gravy, yogurt, juices, fresh fruits, and great coffee. We did not feel at all rushed by the staff to grab our food at the end of the breakfast hour. It is a non-smoking facility with firm penalties for smoking in the rooms, but it didn't stop someone from choking out the ocean breeze by smoking on the balcony and by the pool. The elevator shut down twice in our 3 night stay, and there is only one elevator for 10 floors. We did not see any bugs on our stay - instead cute, little birds. We were there in off season, and there was no chair and umbrella valet. Tiki bar prices were what you'd expect on the beach, but the atmosphere and music were worth it. It is also a short walk to hard sand, and there are multiple foot washing stations. The kitchenette is a little outdated and the ceiling in the bathroom is very low, but any low points were negated by all the luxuries of being right at the beach with awesome staff that made you feel like part of the family, scrumptious breakfast, and great views of the ocean.

We used the hot tub as well on a rainy day or two and delighted in the quieter pace compared to neighboring Myrtle Beach.

The Best Western Ocean Sands is our go to hotel in North Myrtle Beach. Always wonderful service and a great location. You can't beat the price. You get a nice ocean front room with a private balcony. These are not huge rooms but you get everything you need. Our main purpose is to be outside on the beach. My wife loves to walk and the beach is perfect as the sand is quite firm for walking. The staff is always quite accommodating. Again, this is the first hotel we check when planning a trip to North Myrtle.

First, the price for three nights was very reasonable. Then, when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had been upgraded to a suite! I think because they were having work done to several rooms. It just made a stay in a wonderful place all that much more amazing. We had a bedroom, living room, and small kitchen. With a family of 4, we were able to buy a few groceries so that we didn't have to eat out for every meal, plus we were able to put the kids to bed and then enjoy staying up later to watch TV or just hang out. We so appreciated the upgrade, everyone there was just so nice, and the breakfast was awesome! One of the king sized beds was a little uncomfortable, but not enough to keep us from coming back. We will absolutely stay there again!

Good room, good breakfast. Great staff. Parking was tricky but not a big concern. Beach access was great. The beds and pillows were clean and comfortable. Our balcony had a great view of the sea. We would stay there again.

We loved hearing and seeing the ocean right at our balcony; it got us right in the beach mode! It's not a fancy place, but good, clean place as a base for Myrtle Beach fun. The hearty breakfast was a real plus; better than in a tony B&B we visited a few weeks ago. 11:00 AM checkout is SO much more relaxed than 10AM. Thank you!

Friendly staff, good breakfast, good WIFI, nice rooms. Welcomed upon arrival by night reception. Cleaning staff very cordial. Breakfast was good especially the waffles. Options for outside seating. Wifi and room was very good. Oceanfront has a great view. Two buildings next to each other. Main building provides breakfast and has one pool. Tower building has larger pool inside and out, small lazy river, and hot tub. Also has Tiki Bar which provides great drinks at good prices along with some of locals stopping by. Our only issue was parking. Not enough spots at or across the street. The additional overflow parking was up the street and poorly lit.

Second time we stayed at this motel. We were not disappointed. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. Our room was very well kept. With clean plenty of clean towels everyday. The ocean view from our 3rd floor balcony was the best. Plenty of parking both in front and across the street. Breakfast was very nice with a good selection to choose from. don't be afraid to give this Best Western a try...you won't be disapointed!

The beach location was nice, but the noisy neighbors ruined our trip. The last night we were there we had to call the front desk to get them to quiet down at 2:00 AM. They informed my wife they had already been called by several other people and were trying to get ahold of the owner of the hotel to find out what to do. It is obvious when your guests are being kept awake either call the police or go over there yourself. She finally went over there, but we could not get back to sleep after all that. My advice, pick a different hotel if you want a restful vacation.

Stayed at this hotel over the Labor Day holiday weekend. We wanted a nice, clean room that wouldn't break the bank. This hotel provided all that. The exterior is rather old and dated looking but the room was really nice. The breakfast was good. The ladies working in the breakfast room worked hard to keep the food trays, coffee and beverages filled. They even let me heat my waffle syrup in the kitchen microwave which I thought was nice of them. The make-them-yourself waffles were very tasty - my favorite thing on the buffet. They also had scrambled eggs, bacon, tortillas, bread for toast, cereal, muffins, fruit and several other items. The coffee was hot and tasty and the juice wasn't watered down like some tends to be at breakfast buffets. The housekeeper was very nice and the room was clean when we checked in. The a/c worked very well which is important at the beach. The mattresses could use an update - they were ok but made noise when we turned over in the bed. The pillows were nice though and there were 4 pillows per bed. The pool and lazy river are on the small side. The pool area was kept very clean and orderly. The walk to the beach was easy. There are showers to wash away the sand when you are done on the beach. There was a Tiki Bar at the pool which we didn't use but we saw people going there throughout the day. The location worked well for us - we like North Myrtle better since it's a little more laid back and less congested than nearby Myrtle Beach - and it's easy to get almost anywhere you want to go from the hotel. Overall, a very nice stay. We won't hesitate to book a short stay here again.

This is perfect for your family - it is on the beach - there is a convent store across the street, breakfast in the morning and places that deliver food near by... you really don't need to leave the hotel... for kids there are multiple pool options if the beach gets to be too much. You are away from some of the craziness of Myrtle Beach too - so you can just have a fun family time at the beach

my husband, children, and i stayed here this weekend and we had a blast. We stay on the beach quite often but booking a room was horrible online because the address was misleading. We normally stay in the heart of Myrtle Beach, we try to stay no further down than the breakers. Boy this hotel was in the boondocks and away from the fun and adventure. once we got to our room there was a messy shower but the staff was so nice and fast once I made them aware they took care of the issue quickly. I won't be staying here ever because of the location but I recommend this hotel for anyone willing to stay in the north myrtle beach area. Besides the shower incident the grounds and the overall hotel was very clean.

Everything about this place is great, great stay, great views, great parking, and the best part is the Great service we received during our short visit. I will be returning next year. When I first arrived the staff was so very friendly and after checking in early, they gave me a parking pass so that I could enjoy the beach until my room was ready. They also had prepared a gift bag for me! It was very pleasant. The rooms were immaculate. Clean, cozy, and spacious. The view was beautiful. We spent a little time at the pool bar as well, bartender was great. Spent her time interacting with all the guests, and again great service. We really enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

This location is close to all sorts of food and fun. The rooms are certainly dated and the building we stayed in could use a few updates but overall it was a great stay. We felt safe and it was VERY quiet at night which I loved. I will say that if you are staying in the furthest building (the annex) there is not a sidewalk on the side of the street to get to breakfast or the pools etc. You have to either cross over the street and then cross back over three buildings up or cut through other properties driveways and walk around cars or walk in the road. (Just a it annoying with little kids and all their "stuff." Also there were only three spots for cars due to signs for motorcycle parking so any others others would have to park across the street which might prove a problem for elderly guests etc. The breakfast was fine. I'm gluten free so the eggs and bacon were pretty much my only option. It was mostly carbs and pretty much the same ones each day. They rotated the meats however. I was a little disappointed after staying at another best western recently with a larger spread and healthier options, but the area was always clean and restocked! Honestly the staff makes this place it's definitely an older hotel and it's not the Taj Mahal but the people who work there were super nice and tried to accommodate! The cleaning staff left us a little treat, the staff and we checked in gave a little gift bag of taffy and some brochures, even the maintenance people would stop by our table and say hello at breakfast, and when I asked questions of Earl he was very helpful and went out of his way when my son made a huge mess to help clean it up without making a big fuss or getting upset. That's the kind of thing that makes us come back to a place like this.... with so many options on the beach all priced about the same it's how you are treated that really matters.

Every time I go to the beach I stay at Ocean Sands Best Western Resort in North Myrtle Beach. They are consistently a great hotel with desirable amenities especially my favorite, BREAKFAST!. And they are always improving things. i like staying in the Annex Building which has only 3 floors and is like a little motel by itself, walk out the door and down a path of white sand to the beach. How much more convenient is that? Oh yeah, and my car is parked in a mini-parking lot right in front of the rooms. That's another reason I like this Annex Building of the Best Western.

We were so impressed with the customer service from the employees at BW Ocean Sands. We were having a beach wedding but the morning was so stormy that we called to see if there was anywhere inside we could have it. The front desk employee sent maintenance to clean the meeting room and told us we could use it free of charge if we needed it. It really made our day so much less stressful to have an alternative so easily. Also, our room looked exactly like the example pictures on their website, with a gorgeous view.

"From Riches to Rags"

15/08/2017

This was our 4th time staying at this hotel. We have sung the praises of this hotel for years. We had a break from 2013 to this year but were eager to come back and couldnt wait to spend a week here. This years stay was our last. -Your "housekeeping" is laughable. The housekeeper assigned to our room did the absolute bare minimum, if you even want to call it that. The first day I had to request her to come back to vacuum. The following days the room was not done till 330-4pm. A Q-tip sat on the floor in the bathroom in the exact same place, for the ENTIRE duration of our trip. Some days we had enough towels for our whole family. Some days only 3 towels. Some days NO towels. The house keeper (a very overweight black woman) clearly hated me and made it obvious by the way she glared at me, refused to smile back or make any sort of friendly small talk whatsoever. It was unreal how awful housekeeping was. My 9 year old could clean the room better than she could. -perhaps the lack of proper cleaning could explain why there were bugs literally crawling out of the walls. Tiny black dots with legs that would crawl out at night in the bathroom and the kitchen and crawl around on the toilet and floor. My kids would scream there are spiders in the bathroom. Tons of them. And palmetto bugs, not nearly as many but those are big and look like roaches. I should not be afraid to walk around my 1500 dollar hotel room at night out of fear of stepping on a bug. -The bartender Vickie was so unfriendly it made me wonder why she was in a position of customer service. I tried to discuss the rainy weather with her, I was wondering if this was typical for Myrtle Beach in August, since we usually come in July and i was curious if perhaps the start of Hurricane season was impacting it. And I was met with one line sentences of I dont know, I dont watch the weather, Im not sure. I mean, presumably she lives there, I would think she would know if rainy weather was typical or not? Or at least act like Im not annoying her by asking questions about it? -The comments made by your staff regarding the amount of food we took at breakfast made us feel so uncomfortable and so unwelcome that we ended up going out to breakfast the last 4 days to avoid feeling like we were doing something wrong. As previously explained, we have such a large family with small kids that we didnt want to mix them into the breakfast chaos and take up two tables so instead we brought plates of food upstairs. Your staff felt the need to comment on those plates of food. Perhaps they should just mind their business in the future. -There is zero security in this hotel. We were told not to order from a certain pizza place because the food is literally cooked in their kitchen and that your staff has to chase them off the property daily. Well we got a menu from them daily. Im not seeing where they are being chased off. Who else is able to just stroll around? - The smoking at the pool is just disgusting and should not be allowed. People are on vacation with their kids and the last thing they want to do is breathe in nasty smoke and step on dirty cigarette butts on the ground next to the pool chairs. ( actually happened) Smoking is prohibited in so many places I dont understand how it is acceptable at the pool where so many little lungs are at play. Disgusting. - Your internet service is terrible. Only works in certain areas of the room. Really needs a drastic upgrade. -On our last day the part of the ceiling of our room (217 in the large building) fell off and into our room. This was the straw that broke the camels back and I took your night manager John aside to discuss the vast list of complaints with him. He said I needed to speak with the GM Dan and went about getting him and sending him to our room. Instead of coming to our room to discuss my complaints and hearing what had gone on the entire week and what was wrong, he opted to tell John to credit us a night and he went home for the weekend. I found this to be so incredibly unprofessional and telling of his dedication to this hotel and really proof as to why it has been run into the ground the last 3 years. If he actually cared about what was wrong - even if he had heard it all before- he would have taken the extra 5 minutes to come see us. He obviously doesn't care that we will never be back again.

DO NOT expect a new resort, but DO expect a family friendly hotel WITHOUT an attitude. Will return here again.

Spent 4 nights here weekend of the 4th hotel is very over priced and needs updating and repairs we had trouble checking in our room was not available at the time we were told we could check in and had to wait almost 2 hrs. Plus parking is awful here they do not have enough parking and if you leave it's hard to get another spot. The hotel is not located in a good spot nothing around it as in attractions or amusement parks and only 1 restaurant everywhere you have to travel to nothing much in walking distance.

The staff and location of this hotel were great. Clerks, housekeeping and breakfast staff couldn't have been nicer and helpful. Great location right on a beautiful stretch of beach.

The only down side is the room could use update, especially the bed.

27/07/2017

I stayed for three nights and for the amount of money they charge it was not worth my money. You can tell that they tried to remodel the hotel... but looks half way done in my opinion. The breakfast was not even worth being free. The breakfast is in what looks like an old banquet hall. Needs some serious upgrades. There are two elevators and during my entire stay there was always one elevator out of service. I was also woken up at 2 in the morning by a group of girls who were celebrating a bachelorette party. I called down to the front desk and the response was " yes other people have called too".... let's just say that these girls were partying until 4 am. The pool wasn't even worth me taking a swim... it's small. The good thing is that the hotel is directly on the beach. Will not be staying here again. Too bad that housekeeping and management do not take better pride in upkeeping this hotel.

The hotel was awesome, staff was great except for two employees.Bartenders Becky and Vicki were awesome!!! They are an asset to the hotel!! Did not have the opportunity to meet Renae. The fourth bartender, I don't know her name was quite rude towards us and very lazy. My adult children waited 20 minutes for her to acknowledge them and then said that she didn't want to make hotdogs. Really?! Just get a hot dog and place it on the bun, no toppings, how hard can that be? I checked out at 5:15am, or rather tried to. The desk clerk told me that she was busy and slammed the window in my face, She then walked away. Housekeeper Mary was wonderful!!

Got a last minute reservation and brought the grandkids to the beach. First of all, it was great to be able to get a room for just one night in the height of summer. You usually have to book for a week at a time and it is difficult to just come on the spur of the moment. While we are low level rewards members, Bridget made us feel like royalty at check-in. The coupons and goody bag were an extra-special treat and it was sweet of her to remember both grandkids. As far as the room, it was perfect. My wife is handicapped and we were able to park next to the lobby. We had room 108 which is about as good as it gets. Super close to the parking space and as close to the beach access as you can get. While the hotel sees a lot of use, everything was in working order, spotlessly clean and smelled great!!! I'm sorry I don't remember our housekeepers name, but a big thank you to her!!! In the morning, they were out cleaning the pool and grounds and everything looked great. Check-out was a breeze. Since it was a short trip, we never checked out the other buildings or the breakfast.

These things probably can't be changed but will mention anyway. A 4 night stay for a little over $1000 at this motel is ridiculous. Inside rooms were VERY clean, Staff was extra nice. Parking is terrible especially the over flow parking. Not a fan of walking 2 streets away back to my room at 2am alone. Pool not that great. View was awesome. Elevator and unloading/loading zone area is no good. If you use a luggage cart to get you luggage to the room good luck not getting in everyone's way on and off the elevator area. But the main thing to me was my room was clean. $1000 clean? No. $650-$700 for 4 nights for what you get is much more reasonable.

Had a wonderful vacation! Service and staff is exceptional! Rooms are slightly dated, but clean. Location is so close to the beach! Breakfast is good, but crowded! Unloading and loading is tight, but many parking lots nearby. Good place for families with small children!

"Disappointed"

06/07/2017

Hotel staff was great. Lack of parking space in front of hotel. Parking spaces across the street in three separate spaces. Not good when you are loading and unloading. This hotel is definitely for someone who doesn't care about the appearance of the room , but seeks the beach location. Staff went out of their way to please me.

We booked our trip at the end of February, we did arrive at the hotel early and asked if we could do early check in we were told they would have a room in 1 hour we went to get breakfast came back they told us another hour no problem it was now going on 12 if you were not going to have a room till 4 why didn't you just tell us????? the manager said his staff never told us a room would be available earlier and that we could have our money back and stay somewhere else really??? we stayed 12 days for well over $2500.00 I guess sales means nothing to this manager?

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
Sorry we couldn't get you into the room earlier. During the summer months, we are extremely busy and have only a limited time to prepare the rooms for the day's arrival. We average about 50 check outs and check ins on a given day. This is why we have a 4pm check in time. We do allow all guests to arrive early, use the pools and beach, park on property, and then we call them if the room happens to become available prior to 4pm. However, there are instances when we cannot accommodate an early check in.

We spent four nights at the Best Western Ocean Sands in North Myrtle Beach this past April, 2017, and we loved this Hotel. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and helpful - Excellent. The location, on the beachfront, was perfect. The pools, hot tub, and tiki bar were great amenities. And, the free breakfast each morning was more than adequate and varied, with food replenished as needed. We had an Oceanfront Room, with Kitchen in the smaller of the two main buildings, and it was clean and comfortable. Plus, the Hotel is in a good, North Myrtle Beach location. (not far from Main Street shops and restaurants) Simple, comfortable and friendly; we will stay again.

"Ocean view, amenities at affordable cost"

20/06/2017

The guest room was well kept up and very clean. To our surprise, we were put in a direct ocean view room. We didn't realize our room overlooked the ocean until we arrived. We drove a block+ to park but didn't have any issues finding a spot even late in the PM. The free breakfast was well prepared but a bit on the bland side and the layout of the breakfast area caused a lot of delays in getting food. It also felt very crowded during peak hours. The pancake machine worked well and the pancakes tasted good. The syrup, waffles, and eggs were the most bland of all the chains I've been to that serve a free breakfast. They were well cooked just not a lot of taste. The regular coffee was excellent and served fresh early in the AM (all day). The room beds were comfortable and didn't have a comforter (thank you) like many chains have. The hotel staff from the cleaning crew to the front desk were all trained in Southern hospitality, smiled and were all helpful. Nice hot tub & pool. We recommend this Best Western as an excellent value for the money and will be back next year.

I stayed in the south tower of the hotel and enjoyed every minute of the stay! The room featured a balcony with an excellent view, tiki bar, pool, and lazy river. The breakfast buffet was in a separate building but it was a very short walk. The hotel features a few different parking areas which was confusing at first, but worked out well. The hotel is older, but I really enjoyed the stay and will return!

The location and scenery was good and the room was very nice and stocked with needed items. Housekeeping was consistent in providing service daily. The breakfast bar was attractive, well stocked, and had a variety of foods to choose from each morning. The pool area was well maintained and clean. The staff was courteous and helpful and willing to help in any way that they could.. Parking could be a challenge depending on the time of day that you were trying to park but was the only situation that we encountered.

15/06/2017

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. We love the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel, a rarity it seems, in the Myrtle Beach area. Parking is a real hassle and an elevator that suddenly quits working. Wonderful breakfast bar. Husband loved the Tiki Bar and I loved the Lazy River. A towel rack in the bathroom would be great. Beds were too soft and squeaky for me, but husband slept great. In spite of these things, we love this hotel! Great beach access too.

Our family has stayed here past 2 years. The breakfast is always good. The kids love the pool and lazy river. Located in a rather quiet location. This was the first year we had an issue with the fold out bed, that stunk. But maintenance had it out of our room and replaced right away. The tiki bar and all the staff are so nice. If your looking for something affordable and nice here it is!

"A high point of our trip!"

06/06/2017

I found this hotel through TripAdvisor and we couldn't have been any happier with it! We were traveling as a group of older motorcycle riders on our 17th annual Spring ride. Historically, we've usually spent only one night at a stop, but the weather elsewhere was "iffy" and we elected to spend two (2) nights at the Ocean Sands. That decision, overall, was a good one and we had two funfilled days there. The tiki bar and, more specifically, Renay (with the "AY"), made our stay positively great! Switching to 2 days was not without its inconveniences. Each of the four room holders visited the front desk to add a night and Bridgett looked at us like we had three heads and just couldn't comprehend how to add a night. In the end, each of our rooms came out screwed up and we were told that we had missed our arrival, as the rooms were not only rebooked in error, but double booked! The Front Desk is the weak link here. Our rooms were nice, the views of the beach were awesome and the staff kept them clean and neat! We were happy to be on the ninth floor for spectacular views but, when we checked out, the elevator was broken so we had some stairs to climb. By the time we rolled out, the elevator was back in service but, we'd already dragged our bags downstairs by stairs. Each of us agreed that this hotel excelled in making our trip a memorable occasion and the elevator and the front desk clerk errors did not diminish our good time! I would recommend this hotel without any reservation to a friend.

We rode in on 5/30 and the hotel was great and clean. We made our way to the pool and we met Renay, and in a term we use for few people "she rocks". We could not have been happier and she made us feel at home. We decided to stay another night and the main reason was Renay, she's a keeper . The room attendants also rocked and the rooms were immaculate. I definitely would recommend this hotel, but, make sure you visit the Tiki Bar and experience Renay a double plus.....

29/05/2017

The location is ideal. Rooms were spacious and the breakfast was appreciated. I recently completed a weekend with friends at the beach. Our plan was to completely unwind and relax, read our books on the beach and enjoy the sunsets from our balcony with a glass of wine. Unfortunately, this was impossible. There was a roof DJ playing music from 10:45 am until after midnight. I had my headphones in and my music on to help me fall asleep and I could still hear this DJ. It was constant during the day and so loud my friends and I could not conversate. At one point we went three hotels down the beach and could still hear the rap music. It was not relaxing at all. I politely inquired how long he would be playing, and was told ten pm, however it was well after midnight before I heard silence, and then it resumed before eleven the next day. Sitting on our balcony was impossible as we were just two floor below him. I asked at the front desk if this was something that was every day/weekend, and was told it was. If this is the case I will not be back. I prefer to hear the sound of the waves on my beach vacation not loud music and a DJ who every few minutes insists that someone " dances off or one the beach."

Everything at this hotel was great except the bed. I got maybe 7 hours of actual sleep over the 3 days that I stayed there. I woke up every day with neck and back pain. They are very soft--too soft. Other than that, the location is great, the amenities are fantastic, and the staff is very helpful and kind. It wasn't too pricey for a last-minute booking, so overall I can't complain too much.

Parking is across the street from hotel and just a couple of hotel owned lots. Breakfast was good, but in another building than we were in, so we had to go outside to get there. Luckily no rain while we there. Beach was clean and chairs and umbrellas are offered if you sign up for them. Really no other amenities.

This is a nice hotel with great access to the Beach. Can't go wrong if you book here. I recommend booking an Ocean Front room. The free breakfast is also a nice addition to staying here. There is a nice little Tiki Bar out by the pool. This also seems to be a quiet location.

"Good location, poor breakfast"

17/05/2017

Although check-in was confusing all staff members were very helpful with good customer service. Hotel itself is old and worn, but its oceanfront so things can be overlooked. Breakfast area is quite cumbersome but this hotel was built before "breakfast included" became the norm. Breakfast itself was extremely weak and uninteresting, we tried it twice then gave up and found a nearby restaurant. Probably would not choose this hotel again.

"Unfortunate Annex Building Experience"

2
15/05/2017

Overall the staff were very friendly but we had to stay in what is called the annex building or the 3rd building and it was not the greatest. The rooms in the other two buildings looked much better. Our key card reader was broken and the front desk staff tried to fix it but during our entire stay it was quite a challenge just even getting into our room. There were ants crawling all over the nightstand and the shower curtain rod was broken. The hotel did have a good breakfast and the tiki bar staff were great! I also really enjoyed the fact that the hotel was right on the beach so we could walk there. If you decide to stay in this hotel I would recommend asking to stay in the main buildings.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
The annex building is located directly on the beach. You step out your room and the ocean is right there. However, the rooms do not have balconies nor do they face the beach. This is why they are priced much lower than our oceanfront accommodations. We checked our communication logs and could not find any reference to ants being reported during your stay. We will certainly have this checked out.

Very unprofessional staff... was told during check in that someone had already checked into my room and was given a last name, (didn't know them) but was given a room key anyway and told by staff to go to the room to see if someone was in the room. Very unprofessional and unsafe. Upon check out I was called by yet another last name (again didn't know anyone by that name) had to correct them to be certain they were checking me out of the correct room, to avoid charges on my stay. Very unprofessional

I did check on your account and saw where you had added a friend to the account. This may explain why our desk staff could have mistakenly identified you. As far as someone giving you a key and asking you to check to see if another guest is in a room? That's just completely bizarre. Our staff is top-notch and receives rave reviews. I'm just very sorry you did not feel the same.

The saff were extremely friendly and room was spacious. Nice view of ocean and pretty quiet. But, we planned on using the Murphy bed and we did not because it smelled like urine. In fact, the "living room" area of the suite smelled like urine from the bed so we didn't spend much time in there, which was ok because we were there for one night. I would've asked to move rooms if we were there longer.

5th floor ocean view and a really nice beach. Best Western Ocean Sands is a great Hotel in N Myrtle Beach, Only problem is lack of parking near the hotel. But since we always go off season we have never had a problem, The hotel is well kept and the rooms are comfortable and clean. They need to do something about the beds as it was hard and uncomfortable. Great access to the beach and a great swimming pool. Very nice check in personnel. Smoking should not be allowed around the pool. We could not use our balcony because of all the smokers

We were at this hotel in early November. Beautiful sunny weather to enjoy the incredible beach right in front of our room. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet. Only one good place to eat in walking distance, tho.

"UPGRADES MADE GREAT EVEN BETTER"

06/11/2016

My second review for this hotel because they've upgraded what is a very reasonably priced hotel and we found them ideal for us. The room decor and bedding is new and the breakfast buffet has been improved. I can only speck for the room we always get, but I have no doubt that the same can be said for the others. The staff has some mew personal and still just a helpful as always.

"Excellent experience!"

We had a very pleasant stay in the tower building. Even though there are only 2 of us, we chose the larger unit (which could sleep 8) to get the full kitchen,separate bedroom and living room. The unit is updated and was immaculate. The kitchen is a real bonus. We would like to highlight several employees by name, although we also note that we didn't encounter a single employee who did not present as professional and polite: Toni, Earl, Laura, Ted, Renee, Terrence, Deanna, Jo, Guadalupe, Michelle.

"Amazing"

03/11/2016

I was in the 10 story tower top floor ocean view room. This was my first trip alone after being super sick a year ago. My room was utterly amazing. Complete unobstructed view. Small kitchenette area. Great access and right on the beach. Rented a beach bike and chair from local shop as I am a big bicyclist. Pool is a bit small but does not matter as ambient temp of ocean is around 75 degrees. Sand is really white. Beaches are clean. I never went to breakfast as I get up later. Parking is a bit weird but they have a number of close lots. Cleaning staff was great. Front office staff helped out immediately when I needed an extra cord for oxygen. I have been many places and been marginally impressed but this room was big, clean and such an amazing view. It was my first trip there and flew into Wilmington North Carolina and drove there. I would highly recommend

"Good Stay"

02/11/2016

I recently stayed at this hotel. It was a good stay. I stayed in a Non-ocean side room. This location does have Ocean side rooms; however if you do decide to stay in a Ocean side room parking is very hard to find. But, otherwise I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Relaxing stay"

01/11/2016

Very reasonable rates. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was ok. Lots of seating as compared to many hotels that we have stayed at with free breakfast. Parking was kind of inconvenient. Jets in hot tub weren't working during the whole 4 days that we were there. Great beach access! All of the staff that we had contact with were very nice. We would stay here again.

"The staff made the visit more enjoyable!"

5
01/11/2016

The room was clean, well serviced, exactly as pictured on website, and reasonable. The parking was ok, but spread out and mostly across the street. The hot breakfast was lackluster, but the staff was above par by far! From the time we checked in until we left we didn't hear any murmuring and saw no one that didn't seem happy to be at work. The facility is starting to show it's age and could use some updating but the place is clean and taken care of. The pools, hot tub, and lazy river were great. The beach is right there, and plenty of things to do nearby. Great value in this place.

"Nicely maintained, excellent beach access, but smoker alert"

27/10/2016

This property is an odd one, composed of three separate buildings: an old two-story motel, the 5-story reception building, and another 10-story tower. All three have direct access to the beach, and the latter two feature beach-view balconies that are great. Parking is located across Ocean Drive in about five different lots, all specifically marked for hotel guests. We had no problem with this, though the front desk suggested that sometimes competition for spots is tough. We stayed in the 5-story reception building that also houses the free breakfast--the public areas get a lot of wear and tear, but they are ok. The breakfast area, however, is so poorly designed that there are constant traffic jams and many grumpy patrons, all desperately trying to get to the very standard breakfast offerings. The single elevator worked fine, but it creaked, rattled, and whined like a 1960s police car trying to keep up with a Maserati. As for the rooms themselves, they are renovated and quite comfortable. I didn't care for the half-size pillows, but I am not a half-size guy, so that makes sense. One surprise was the smoking policy: guests are not allowed to smoke in their rooms, but they can light up on their balconies, resulting in a lot of smelliness. Our neighbors seem to have been chain smokers! It was often unpleasant to be on the balcony, and if we kept the door open to hear the ocean, cigarette smoke would drift in. That was the worst part of the hotel, honestly, but perhaps that is par for the course in North Myrtle Beach? I expected better. Other than not being able to deal with the smoking issue, staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was very good. Come to this place for its affordable, excellent beach access.

"North is Nice !"

26/10/2016

North Myrtle is SO much nicer, great hotel, great staff, decent breakfast (we need BACON). Would be nice if you did an afternoon snack / wine / beer hour. Room price was good, right in there with the other North Myrtle hotels. A lot quieter up North, we like that. We'll be back.

"Slightly Above Average"

26/10/2016

This Best Western for beach front was slightly above average for hotel stays at the beach. Enjoyed the stay and issues were minor. Hair dryer didn't work when it was needed, but everything else was okay.

"Good value for your money"

25/10/2016

It was clean and a good value for your money. I liked the free breakfast. Could have had more variety but hey, it was free. We stayed in an oceanfront suite. Beautiful view. Most of the staff was friendly.

"Excellent View"

4
25/10/2016

The room, view, meal service, and staff very great. The only issue we had was the bathroom. This was an ADA room but the tub was normal size with high sides. There was only a small glass shelf that left no room for any toiletries. It was a juggling act to get ready and required trips out of the bathroom to get what was needed. We've stayed in Best Westerns in several states with ADA access and have not encountered this issue. The only thing that prevented an Excellent rating was the bathroom issues.

"Great Beachfront Hotel, but can be noisy & parking may be difficult to find"

4
24/10/2016

We stayed 5 nights at this Resort, which has 3 buildings in a row. The hotel employees were very cordial, especially the night manager, Earl, who went out of his way to find us parking. The parking is often hard to find, but there are several lots nearby - you just have to hunt for the spaces, especially if you arrive late in the evening. The two daytime front desk women were also very nice and gave us an oceanfront room upgrade for free. Our room was on the 1st floor, overlooking the pool, and since it was cooler weather, thankfully, no people were in the pool to make noise; however, on Saturday morning, some very noisy workers were outside our room, pressure-cleaning the deck at 7 a.m., which was not the ideal time! In addition, we were right across from the ice machine & snack machine, which were also noisy - especially early in the morning, when people would congregate there and talk very loudly while the ice was crashing down from the machine into their buckets. I was glad I brought my earplugs! The kitchenette had a 4-burner stove, microwave, mini-fridge, and lots of utensils, cookware, plates, etc. There were 2 bedrooms in the suite, which is good for families or for couples that like to sleep in separate rooms.

.About 3.8 due to age of facility, but everything else is a 4. Service is great location is right on the beach and its a great beach. Everything you need is just over one street within 5 miles; shopping malls, restaurants, fun parks. Just a lovely location to visit.

Always look forward to our October trip to Ocean Sands. Look forward every year to see John the night manager. He provides outstanding customer service. Eric was most helpful in finding out a route back home because of Hurricane Matthew. Only wish we could have stayed 10 days but because they are located in Zone A they were forced to close but were the first to open!

"Wonderful location, friendly workers everything else so-so el"

22/10/2016

We were able to stay at this hotel in October for under $100. The beach is close to the building...unlike so many other beaches where you have to walk a long way over a bridge. The lazy river is tiny. The hot tub jets weren't working (ever since Matthew blew through). The workers were nice and friendly. The breakfast was just ok. The furniture was nice in room 315. The queen beds were squeaky. This room looked down on the pool, tiki bar (they have drinks and hotdogs there) and ocean. Bathroom was small and could have been cleaner (bathtub). It could be cleaner behind the tv stand too. I really hate to say anything negative since the price was so good, but this is how I saw it.

"Needs update but still kicking"

20/10/2016

This hotel advertises a lazy River it is more like a lazy Creek It is so small only a couple people can be in it at one time The rooms are kind of worn and the bathtubs are old and scratched but it was clean We didn't have a coffee maker and the front desk guy brought me the coffee maker out of the office at 10 pm right after we checked in The breakfast was great Eggs ham yogurt gravy cereal waffles and all the toppings We chose here because it was one of the only oceanfront rooms available but for 70 night oceanfront it is pretty much a bargain I wouldn't suggest it for a honeymoon but it is great for just a visit We had a corner room oceanfront and it had 2 queen beds and a pull out from the wall and a sofa sleeper and they do have a pool indoor and outdoor besides the mini lazy River so take a trip and see what you think

"Location"

18/10/2016

The hotel location is on the beach which make it very good for us to spend nice time on the sand, the room was clean and bed is comfortable, the staff at the front desk to the Tiki bar, the breakfast was so helpful and assist in any way to make sure that we were happy in our stay. even though the front desk staff went out with me to find a good place to park my car. Kristen at the Tiki bar was so helpful in letting us find a good restaurant to have our dinner.

"Location is Perfect, Rooms Decent"

5
16/10/2016

The value of this hotel is amazing. Right on the beach and rates are really reasonable. Rooms were fine. When first arrived a bit worried as common areas were outdated, but rooms were fine. Would be easy for them to add lighting and change the paint colour in the hallways to give a better first impression. Breakfast was great. Pretty standards food and kept well stocked. Great service from kitchen staff. Hot tub was really loud and impossible to talk, but spent most of time on beach so not a major concern. And the beach...great location and nice white sand - not many placed you can stay so close to the beach in a decent room for the price they charge.

"Vacation"

16/10/2016

This is the second day of staying here. It is a great hotel. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Everyone is so nice and the beach is right behind the hotel. Upon arriving yesterday, I was given hotel "key" , two mini bottles of water and a small portion of saltwater taffy as a welcome gift. The housekeeping make sure you have enough towels, the hotel is quiet, and room spacious. The pillows are half size square pillows, which is different than pillows I've had a places I've stayed before. This is a great trip. I can definitely see staying here for a future visit, where shopping and food establishments, and beach of course are so close. North Myrtle is a good area to stay if you want to stay away from the teen partynees of regular Myrtle Beach area.

"Great place to stay"

I spent 3 night here. It is an older hotel, but I got better service here than the big resorts in Myrtle Beach. EVERYONE that works here is friendly and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. The room was clean, the breakfast was excellent, it was quiet and more like a family run hotel than a chain. My only complaint was the mattress was too soft. I would stay here again. and I plan to. The pools were nice and clean and the grounds were kept well

Came here for a long weekend with my wife. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Our room was very clean and spacious, with a nice size balcony and great view. It was quiet-- did not hear anything from rooms above or beside ours. A/C was quiet and worked well. Good breakfast 6-10, greeting gifts, hotel on the beach, excellent wifi comfortable beds. Loved the pillows.

The room, the staff, and the amenities were all exactly what I would expect. On check-in we were upgraded to a suite (at no additional costs), the ocean view was great and the location is central to dining, groceries, and other shopping experiences. This was our second stay at Ocean Sands and will definitely NOT be our last.

"Nice hotel in need of updating"

04/10/2016

Spent a couple of weeks here and had a lovely holiday. The hotel is good, it does need updating and redecorating but the location is great, right on the beach. We had a Queen Room in the main block on the 4th floor, we have stayed before but on the 9th floor and the view from up there was amazing, sadly the view from the 4th was a bit blocked at both sides by other buildings but still just ok. (Couldn't see the beautiful sunrise) The staff are very friendly. Breakfast is pretty much the same every day and soon got very boring so we went elsewhere. The Tiki Bar was good ... At times great, but it depended who was running it ... Vickie was lovely as was Martin but the German lady was only interested in her 'groupies' as we called them and not very warm or friendly at all, to be honest, we avoided the bar when she was on duty. Overall, a good, fairly clean place to stay ... It misses out on a couple of stars for the following reasons ... Bed linens always felt grubby as they were old and had started to go grey - also they were never pressed. Room not terribly clean, dusty when we arrived and a cigarette butt which was on the floor of the balcony when we arrived was still there when we left (we're non smokers). Breakfast, as mentioned above. Overall, I believe that this place could be great again with the right care and attention to detail and would still recommend this hotel to others.

"Lovely views, Great amenities"

04/10/2016

We enjoyed our two nights in this hotel. Be careful when booking ....I reviewed and decided on the Best Western facility, but when I went back to input my reservation, I mistakenly put in Mrytle Beach instead of NORTH Mrytle Beach....I wound up making the reservation at a hotel 2 miles from the beach! The home staff was so kind in cancelling my NON refundable reservation due to this mistake I made. I was then able to book at the on the beach. We enjoyed our two nights--lovely pools, lazy river, hot tub, tiki bar with lovely drinks.

"Mixed review"

3
03/10/2016

The staff was amazing - any time you encountered an employee, you were asked if you were enjoying your stay, needed anything, etc - very friendly and accommodating. An older property, so the room was HUGE. Wifi had a strong signal, no matter where you were. Now for the downside - the bed was uncomfortable. When I sat on it, I heard it go pop, crack, spring, so I knew it wasn't going to be good. They had a tiki bar by the pool but the hours were unpredictable. When checking the cocktail menu, I noticed that the only brand name for the liquor that I recognized was Burnette's, and that isn't in a positive way. Why would they sell cheap bottom shelf liquor? Where's the Bacardi? Captain Morgan? Jose Cuervo? Even Pinnacle's flavored vodkas is better than Burnette's. I like to live it up a little when I'm on vacation, but not that cheap stuff. ugh

For us, this property was perfect. We're on a very long road trip and just needed a place to stop and relax for a few days. This property was the answer. We did not have reservations on the Sunday that we checked in and the front desk staff accommodated us graciously. Our room was huge and very clean. We did not have an ocean facing room, but were within a very easy and close walk. We will stay here again.

Checked in on September 13, 2016 during Tropical storm Julia. The weather was fair when I arrived a bit windy. I was checked into the South Tower on the 3rd floor which had an amazing view of the ocean. The room was clean and spacious, however, I didn't sleep very well due to the mattress on the bed was somewhat hard for me. Otherwise my stay was a pleasant one. One HUGH problem is parking!!! No way around it so be prepared. I would recommend this resort to others. Friendly staff at front desk. Great breakfast at 6am in the morning. Not many restaurants in the local area.

Extremely dirty, and antiquated. Sheets were never changed in 7 nights! Phone didn't work, blow dryer didn't work, light bulb in bathroom was burned out. Reporting any of this didn't get anything repaired. The house keeper for our room didn't speak English so that didn't help. This was by far the grossest experience I ever had stay at a motel. :(

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are truly disappointed you did not enjoy your stay with us. However, we reviewed our communication log which shows all correspondence from our guests and the actions we took to resolve them. Unfortunately, Nothing was found during your stay. I also spoke with every desk clerk who worked while you were with us and they remember No request to repair any of these items?

Nothing negative to say about our experience staying at the Ocean Sands. The staff was great. From the breakfast staff to the woman working at the front desk, all of them were friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Sure, it's not a 5-star hotel, but it was more than adequate and very cozy. Parking was never a problem, and we didn't mind walking across the street as traffic isn't as bad as in Myrtle. Easy access to King's HW and everything else made it a dream. Looking forward to staying here again next year.

10/09/2016

Pools & Lazy River are very teeny. Rooms are not well maintained, we had a chunk out of our tub mat, rust on the shower curtain bar, stains on the shears and sheets. Hotel windows & elevator not wiped down. Parking is a nightmare! 4 handicap spots and 2 regular at the hotel. Rest of parking is across the street and 1 and 2 blocks away. The room doors slam when they shut, so we were kept up by our neighbors going in and out all night. Elevator didnt' work one afternoon and we had to walk up 4 flights, even though we had a handicap tag and hip replacement. Same day the fire alarm started talking to us in the room ~ telling us to evacuate. I called the desk and was told they were working on the alarm and to ignore it. There were no signs warning us ~ I'm glad I didn't run down stairs in my underwear. The staff were wonderful, though, and very hard working. I would give the staff an excellent rating. Their free breakfast was wonderful also.

This is an older hotel, typical of most Myrtle Beach hotels. We arrived late on the Friday night of Labor Day. Tropical Storm Hermine had hit them the all day. The front desk staff as excellent. Very friendly and efficient. When we arrived at the room we realized that w had not received the type of room we booked. Contacted the front desk and were moved quickly to the right room. The free buffet breakfast was adequate, but so crowded the staff just couldn't keep up. The rooms were clean and housekeeping staff were very helpful. Anything we asked of them was done immediately. Would definitely return.

The staff was very friendly. We were always greeted with a warm smile. We enjoyed breakfast. Parking was ok. Right across the street, but you could unload & load your car right next to the hotel. Pool was clean & relaxing. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

"REVIEWS WERE SPOT ON"

4
06/09/2016

I picked this hotel after reading the reviews online. The only negative reviews that I read about was the parking, walking between buildings, and hotel being dated. I went in the last week of August. I think all the kids were back to school so we never had an issue with parking. As for walking between buildings, people need to stop being babies. I was in the Annex building (furthest away). The walk between buildings was nothing. I have walked further in big resorts from lobby to my room. I must say the hotel rooms were a little dated, but they were clean. I loved being right on the beach. They had two small pools and a lazy river. Again, I was there at the end of the season so the pools were empty. I can see these pools filling up mid season. The lazy river is so small its basically a joke, but my son loved it. The beach in North Myrtle beach is much nicer that the beach in Myrtle beach. I actually liked the area overall better. The hotel had a nice breakfast. They had make your own waffles, biscuits and gravy, muffins, eggs, and sausage. I enjoyed the breakfast every morning. It was a nice cost savings. I pad $90 a night for this hotel. That was a steal. I would stay here again!

The staff was so nice starting from our check in until and through our check out, always making sure our stay was good. The free breakfast was more than we thought, fresh waffles, eggs, sausage and more. We especially loved going from the pool to the beach and back again all day long, but not without a drink from the Tiki bar. We will stay her every year until we get our own place{some day) Thank you Ocean Sands Best Western for making our vacation one of the best ever!!

I found the rooms clean, quite, and the breakfast was good. Staff was informative about local places to eat. Enjoyed the pool and lazy river. The river is small but big enough to enjoy.

The hotel is in a good location with easy access to the beach. Our room was a suite and had mini fridge, stove and microwave. It was clean, well stocked with towels and had everything you need. Parking was tight. They have numerous lots but you have to walk. Breskfast was good, had a lot of options and everyone walked away full. Check in was very efficient and the on duty manager was very polite and offered any needed assistance. Pool was clean and nice. There is even a tiki bar at the pool. Prices were high and not mych alcohol in the drinks. $3.00 for a can of beer and $8.00 for a small frozen drink. There is a small store across the street but their prices were very high.

It was more then the usual bagels and coffee. We had a real breakfast. Eggs, potatoes, waffles, all the cereal, coffee, juice you wanted. Great hotel!

Very friendly staff, both at check in and during our entire 4 day stay. Very reasonable price. Clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, although our mattress appeared to be older and was not perfect.

If you want a luxury hotel, this isn't for you. We love this hotel for the location, price, amenities, location, and the wonderful staff. We don't prefer luxury hotels at all. This place is kid-friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed. It's an older hotel but kept up very well. Check-in & checkout were a breeze and fast. Parking is free but the closest lots fill up. However, they have about 7 places to park within a short walking distance (about 3 are across the street), and are actually close when you consider larger resorts with large parking lots that have a greater walking distance. The breakfast buffet was a full breakfast and open until 10am, but if you're a few minutes late, it's ok. The very personable young lady who manages the breakfast was very sweet and we did not feel rushed to eat, even if we wanted 'seconds'. Our room was very clean and everything in it was functioning well. There was good water pressure, we hate places where the water pressure is low where you get a low pressure and don't feel clean afterward. The beach is right there, not too crowded, and clean. There are a few pools, one in front of the main building and the lazy river pool and kiddie pools (and hottub) in front of the 10-story building. We had a free upgrade to a suite and had a fabulous ocean view on the 9th floor (with private balcony), and on the other side of our suite, we had a nice inland view. Our suite had a full kitchen (no dishwasher), two rooms, a nice bathroom, and two HD TV's. The a/c's in each room worked very well and had a wall control. The are a little noisy but we don't mind that at all. There is a tiki bar at the pool but we didn't visit it. There are several outdoor shower areas to rinse off the sand and salty ocean water. As I mentioned, this is on the beach and when you leave your room and get downstairs, the beach is right off the dunes. In the summer heat, wear flip flops or something on your feet while walking to the beach, as the sand gets burning hot! This was our 2nd stay at Ocean Sands Resort and we plan to stay there whenever we are in N. Myrtle Beach. The bed was very comfortable and I wish I knew which company manufactured the pillows - they were more comfortable than my own pillow!! We loved the swan/ bird made out of a towel that was on one of the beds. All of the staff we encountered were very kind and personable. We met the father of the owners (his 2 sons) and he was very nice - we made sure to let him know how much we enjoy this resort. We reserved our room directly by calling the resort. We'll be back!

We stay here at the best Western twice a year, never had a bad experience since coming for 4 years. Was pleased With housekeeping last year but our housekeeper windy this year was excellent! She always went above and beyond our expectations during out stay! If your planning a trip to north myrtle Beach soon I would recommend you ask for windy to be your housekeeper. Mrs Koreal on night shift was another one that stood out to us! the view from our room was breath taking and I would recommend this place to anyone. All the staff were great and always smiled when in contact with them, even down to the maintenance guy Justin for bring out luggage up. I definitely rate this place as a 10! We will be back soon

We were supposed to stay with another family in a condo a couple blocks away. The morning of our trip, my son woke up with a high fever so we decided to book a separate room for the first night. On the way to the airport, I got on booking.com and came across the Best Western just a couple blocks away. When we arrived, the staff was amazing. They were very kind and upgraded our room so my son would be comfortable with a balcony and oceanfront room since he was sick and stuck inside on his vacation. We ended visiting an Urgent Care and were too late for the included breakfast the next morning. The front desk staff told us what was available and sent my son to our room with cereal, muffins and fruit. The staff was amazing, very concerned about my son and remembered us every time we came out of the room. We were so happy with this hotel that we decided to stay for the rest of the week instead of staying in the condo with our friends. I only gave the hotel a 4 because the room was a bit dated. It was very clean and a great location...I wish there was an option for 4.5!

This was our first visit to North Myrtle Beach and we were not disappointed! I booked this hotel for the location, price, breakfast included and opportunity to have an ocean front balcony. Our room was in the main building on the fourth floor so breakfast was in our building on the first floor which was great. I didn't expect to have all the kitchen supplies available which would have been great had we been able to stay longer. Loved the balcony and view!!! We rented beach chairs and umbrella just out front on the beach for $25. a day offered by the City of North Myrtle Beach. The area was quiet and all the staff very friendly. We would absolutely stay here again!!! A great place to eat is Molly Darcy's which you can easily walk too.

This is a wonderful hotel right on the ocean. The staff are all wonderful and go over and beyond to make you feel welcome. The room and bathroom were clean top to bottom. There are two pools, a hot tub, kiddy pool, and lazy river. There is also a tiki bar that sells alcoholic beverages. Breakfast is provided each day. There is juice, coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, cold cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, potatoes, sometimes sausage links, sometimes ham, shredded cheese, salsa, hot sauce, gravy, granola, and waffles. There are three separate buildings with this hotel. I was in the south tower! Beautiful views. My kitchenette was well stocked with utensils, pots, silverware, dishes, etc. My room was very roomy, and nicely decorated. A big thank you to Windy, Dustin, Earl, CeCe, Bridgett, Mary, and Michelle for helping make my stay wonderful. There were other staff members whose names I didn't catch, but they were wonderful, too! Everyone of them I encountered always had a kind word to stay. This was my second visit to this hotel. This will be the hotel I'll always use when I visit North Myrtle Beach!!

My husband and I enjoyed everything about our stay. The room was clean and we had no issues. I would stay at this location again. Just so anyone looking at this hotel, the pools are not at this location. There are 3 beach houses between this hotel and the other hotels with pools and the Tiki bar. You have to walk to breakfast, but it wasn't a problem for us, it was not far.

Had to check in late at night and was put in to the -"Anex" portion. Wasn't sure if the bathroom was clean. Had 2 younger kids and didn't want them touching anything. We were all crying by the end of the night frustrated with the room conditions. Great view and location for the beach. However, the price of $179 was not worth it!

"Value at the Beach"

13/08/2016

This Best Western property exceeded my expectations and is absolutely as advertised and as reviewed in the positive reviews. First the negatives: We wanted a room at the 10 story towers and the room was great, but they only have one elevator serving 10 floors, so that sometimes makes for a little bit of a wait to get to your room or back downstairs. Parking was tight----they have several lots up and down the street and we were always able to find a spot, but worried about staying out too late and not finding anyplace to park when we got back. Other than that----this place is exceptional. It's an "in between" price point----not as high as a Marriott but not a low priced Super 8 either. It's moderately priced and worth every penny. Actually, I should give this place a negative review so they keep their prices down and/or the secret doesn't get out what a bargain this is. But to be honest, they are on a beautiful part of North Myrtle Beach, quiet, clean, not exceptionally crowded. They have swimming pools and a cabana that serves hot dogs and frozen drinks. Every single employee of this Best Western, bar none, was friendly, helpful and constantly asked if there was anything they could do for us. That sort of service doesn't exist in many places anymore----it was like stepping back in time. The free breakfast was fine----fuel for the beach. Eggs, sausage patties and potatoes, waffles, cereals, coffee and juices----small pastries too. The room we had was quiet----and the queen beds were very comfortable, as were the plentiful pillows on each bed. The room had a small fridge, along with a microwave and stove and even some pots and pans. The ocean view was great----with a small balcony to sit back have a margarita. I heartily recommend this Best Western and plan to return.

I stayed at this hotel from 8/6/16 - 8/9/16. There was absolutely nothing at all to complain about. The staff was always courteous and accommodating. We had a ocean front room with an incredible view. The pool areas were always clean and there was a Tiki Bar on site. To sum it up in one word-our stay was fabulous! Will stay again with these folks!

We were looking for place right on the ocean for under $175 a night, and this really fit the bill! This property is perfect for families with smaller children. There is a 1 ft pool for the toddlers, and another other outside pool with a very shallow area! As well as another outside pool, inside pool, and hot tub. The breakfast is outstanding! Be sure to get there early! The personnel are all very friendly, and gave us a swag bag of candy and bottled water when we checked in.

BW is about 50yds from the ocean and the room with King bed was comfortable and clean. The flat screen did not provide clear picture for the little time I did watch TV. The bathroom sink was extra small. Not the best BW I have stayed in but ok for the price. Parking at the BW annex was across the street.

this was a business and family trip. I had 2 construction jobs to review there. we had a ocean front room with a king bed view was great. sliding door was hard to open and close. the room was nice clean and the bed extremely comfortable. the staff all were friendly helpful always smiling but I always smile too, but the staff really made the stay enjoyable. the breakfast bar was average. I eat healthy so I had cereal and muffins the down side is parking and unloading. parking is across the street unless you are lucky enough to find on there maybe 10 spaces. if I have business again in the area I would stay thought the pricing was fair at $178.00

"Good value for the location!"

10/08/2016

You can't beat the location of this hotel! Beautiful beach within footsteps. This fact alone makes this place a tremendous bargain. And the daily breakfast included in your price is a great value. Yes, it is typical hotel fair, but there is also the addition of a few "southern" hot options should you choose! The pools are very small, but we spent very little time at the pool with the beautiful beach right there. The tiki bar is very cute, and contributes to that "resort" feel. We stayed in the annex building. All rooms have an ocean view from the room entrance and inside windows. The room was cute and comfortable. My biggest complaint is that the room was so humid it was impossible to dry anything. And with no balcony, you can't even hang towels out to dry. It became such a problem that after several days I had to turn the heat on to try and dry out the room. Even the floor carpet felt damp! It was awful. Also, we did have a day when our beds were not made by housekeeping. They left a note stating it was not possible to make the bed because there were items on the bed. All that was there was an item of clothing left by my daughter! So, other than these two things, our stay was a good one, and I was happy with the value we got in comparison with the prices one will find when exploring other locations directly on the beach.

My family and I love staying here. The service, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, breakfast, etc, etc, etc....are ALWAYS awesome, and exceed our expectations. My only complaint is that the first floor room we stayed in didn't have very good airflow. There are two sleeping areas, and one side is very comfortable when the air is on, but the other one gets uncomfortably warm. This could be improved, or fans could be available, if needed. Everything else is fabulous though! Will definitely be going back!

Don't expect t have your room cleaned. Don't expect towels, toilet paper or anything else from housekeeping. Horrible service. This is my 3rd time at this site and I will never frequent again. The last time I was there, I was also received horrible housekeeping but the Manager was very apologetic and took care of it right away. This time, I left with no complaints as I will not return so complaining was not worth it. The location is great but if you want a semi clean room, go elsewhere!

This place is ok... Not worth the 16 hour drive though. Rooms smell, had a roach in the bathroom and DO NOT get ocean front view. Pool is right out the door and you don't get any peace and quiet.

We had to go to Conroy, SC for business and I was not in the best condition to travel as my knee surgery was postponed another week. Not being a huge fan of Best Western, I found this one not bad! The bed was great, on the beach great, staff very kind and helpful; however, I would never consider this place in high season as the room was right next to the pool and that would be horrid. I didn't mind it as it was too cool to use the pool so it was fine. As a last minute reservation, it was fine. The free breakfast was quite good, crowded, but good. Would I stay there again? Maybe.

This hotel is so uncomfortably disgusting. Thanks for ruining our vacation.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
This review should really be removed. It is very rare to have such a negative review come across while a guest is still staying with us. Therefore, we sent the Executive Housekeeper and a Front Desk Supervisor to their room to see what we could do to assist them. When the Desk Supervisor mentioned they were there to help due to the bad review on Trip Advisor, the guest immediately states they are very happy and there's nothing wrong with the room! When asked the reason for the bad review, the guest stated she was "grumpy" after traveling so many hours. We really wish Trip Advisor would remove this review as we'd hate for potential travelers to be mislead.

18/07/2016

This hotel was nice and clean, ocean front, great location, large room with king bed, sofa and a small kitchen. It had two chairs on the balcony which made for a relaxing place to sit in the mornings and afternoons. The service here was well above average - the head housekeeper came by twice during our stay to ask if we needed anything and to drop of a small package of salt water taffy. We saw a gentleman at the pool area handing out popsicles. There is a small lazy river and when we arrived there were only a few floats available - before we left they had brought in new floats and plenty of them. These folks are really in tune with what the customers want. The only thing I could mentioned that was a little aggravating was the parking... if you returned late at night, the only parking option was a block away in a dark parking area. I understand that space is an issue in Myrtle Beach and I'm sure they do the best they can with it. We will stay here again!

I truly enjoyed my stay at this Hotel. I have had bad experiences in the past, and I am truly grateful I choose to stay at this location. It's far enough away from the madness, and close enough if you want to enjoy touristy outings. I want to thank Laura P at the front desk. I am a native New Yorker, as is she, and from the moment I met her, she was welcoming,and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable...I'll see you next year Miss Laura! If you move locations, I will follow you! Thank you once again for the serenity!

We stayed two nights, my husband, myself and our three kids. The two queen beds were separated by the bathroom and kitchenette. Each bed had its own tv which was nice with the kids. Some parts of the hotel were kind of run down. The halls and back door were old and needed updated/replaced. The view and location are amazing, which is what we really wanted. The tiki bar was nice and the kids really enjoyed the pool. Parking was easy and the rooms were fairly quiet. Also they give you a small bag of salt water taffy each day you stay, nice touch.

We knew this was a beach motel and were ok with that.. Until, I noticed our fitted sheet was on inside out and when I removed it, there were stains EVERYWHERE. When I called to have them changed while we were at the beach, the new set of sheets were left folded on the bed. I didn't come on vacation to do house chores. That night, someone was shooting off fireworks (we hope they were fireworks) on the balcony. Nothing was done. The next night at 2am, someone pulled the fire alarm. The woman next to us outside said it was the 3rd time this week it was pulled. The pillows were horrible and thin. Worst 2 nights of sleep I've ever had at a hotel. The breakfast bar was chaos. People everywhere. The food was below standard. We just ate waffles the whole time. Good luck in that line btw. They said get here before 8 to beat the line. This is a beachfront resort, so I like to think I paid for the short walk to the beach- 500 yards. Our view from the room was excellent, however there was no table out there for us to eat breakfast. We just pushed our inside table against the window to eat with a view. The women working the kitchen were working hard to keep everything filled and the guests happy. The older man at the front desk was kind. Those are my positive reviews. This place needs a security guard and cameras.

"A good deal on the beach"

06/07/2016

My husband and I arrived in Myrtle Beach a couple of days before our condo rental was ready and it was challenging to find a hotel on the beach as most places are now condo rentals. We found this hotel in a nice quiet area and the price was fairly reasonable. This hotels consists of three buildings and we were in the one furthest away (but not far) from the office. While our room did not have an ocean view as soon as you stepped outside the door on the walkway you could see the ocean and the beach was right there! Our room was not extremely modern and the furniture was a bit older, but it was clean, comfortable and included a fridge and flat screen t.v. It was spacious and met our needs. The breakfast in the main building was fine and the woman there worked hard to keep up with the busy morning crowd. We enjoyed a couple of drinks at the tiki bar by the pool despite windy and cool weather. Kirsten was a great bartender who shared lots of stories about Myrtle Beach with us. We enjoyed our time there and I would love to try it again in nicer weather!

We had a great stay, lovely hotel, clean and very well kept. The hotel is amazingly close to the ocean, and there is so much do around the hotel. My only issue was one morning we over slept and my wife needs to take medication by a certain time. My family member (nurse) called to talk and remind us of the medication. Being its a new thing for her to take. Apparently he was told the he could not be transferred to the room because he didn't know the room number. I travel a lot so I know that normally hotel verify the name not just room number. The front desk agent Laura was rude and even though she was told all personal information and name and address she still would not transfer call. This wasn't a security issue. Btw during check out I witnessed a person go to front desk and asked for another guests room with out room number and the male agent at front desk gave them the room number and showed them how to go there. Hmm. That's a security issue. So all in all the hotel was very nice. But Laura made the experience from 5 to a 3.

The Finest Hotel in North Myrtle Beach. Friendly, convenient to everything and the most reasonably priced. It is the only place I stay! You can walk to the beach, lounge by the pool, or hang out in the lazy river. Parking is convenient and the rooms are comfortable. Internet service in the rooms is nice , too. And they have Breakfast every morning which is the best way to start your day at the beach. I think that is what makes my stay a bargain!

I chose the Best Western Ocean Sands because: (1) I had travel points and this hotel honored them; (2) Best Western is a name you'd like to be able to trust. We (myself, a 16-year old; a 17-year old) could have stayed at multiple locations, but wanted the comfort of a brand name. Not what we expected. 1. Check-in was easy, staff courteous and quick. I told them I need a roll-away bed the next two nights and was told to simply come to the desk the next day and one would be brought to the room. 2. Pool and good and what you expect. There are two pools and one was nearly empty the entire time. Lazy river is small but does it's job. 3. Tiki Bar is nice, the drinks were good and prices very reasonable. 4. The roll away. Never came. I asked three times (to three different staff persons). At 10:30 p.m., I finally asked for extra bedding and would make a pallet on the floor - I got one pillow. At midnight, me and boys drove to Wal-Mart, bought a blow up mattress and bedding and spent the remainder of our stay with that configuration. 5. Check out was fast, quick and simple. But the gentleman, when told about the bedding issue, simply waved me on, stating it's "first come, first served". End of conversation. While the bed was comfortable, shower and bathroom facilities good, the customer service is lacking. I wish now, in hindsight - that I would have chosen another facility. I just know when I get a little window to take a small, 3-day vacation, I would like things to be as good as possible. This was too much of an inconvenience, in my opinion.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We're sorry about the situation with the rollaway bed. However, those are based on availability and you did happen to stay during the summer ( our busiest season ). We do have room options that include multiple beds but it appears you selected the room with only a king and small sofa. Also, we hoped the desk staff who checked you in mentioned that we gave you a FREE upgrade from the non oceanfront unit you booked to our main building with an oceanview! Those room are normally $30 per day extra but we didn't charge you any extra. We certainly hope your next vacation goes a little smoother!

Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort presents itself well on the internet. Upon arrival, reality set in. Tired, shop-worn 'utilitarian' with dirty elevator, and hosed-down grime in elevator access. Room was basically clean, until I looked under the bed. wads of dust bunnies were multiplying !! Same under bathroom door.

The room was perfect. Separate sleeping and lounge areas, so that we could have the kids over every night, visiting with them in the lounge. We even had a kitchenette. We spent a lot of time relaxing with them after long days of the beach, meeting their family and friends, and eating our way around town. Turned out to be the best choice we could have made. Room needed updating.

It took a while but I was finlly able to cut a deal for 4 weeks for 960 for the Sixth floor directly over the pool and the Tiki Bar.If you have children you will like the fact that the pool is kid friendly and has one of those flowing river setups..I noticed as the sun started to set it became a little more adult oriented and you could get wi-fi at the Tiki lounge...They have a blender and basic beer in bottles and some basic snacks..It is useable for the pool area and to be 75 yards off the beach.The beach area is very decent and has great sunrises and sunsets..The water is cloudy about 40-50 percent of the time but when it is clear the water is beautiful..The N M Beach are is very accesible to Cherry Grove and other resorts close by

This is a great place to stay. We had no issues or problems. The staff was great and very helpful. Our room was clean and quiet. Enjoyed the beach and the surrounding area. I recommend this hotel and hope to come back soon.

"access to beach"

23/06/2016

. Beach access was okay but it would have been so much better if they had a wooded walk way out to the beach rather than the small pathway through the weeds or the passage that beach vehicles take. Also to publish in the rooms or tell you at the desk if you can rent the beach chairs and umbrella that were already set up on the beach. It would have been better if they had a tiki bar at each pool area rather than at just the one,

I stayed here on Christmas Eve 2015. The staff is extremely friendly the hotel is very nice! There is a great watering hole right up the street that has great food also. I would say during the summer months this would be a prime place to stay for a great vacation. I will definitely return at some point!

Overall the stay was great. The room had some water and mold damage. Husband informed front desk staff and it was handled quickly. Offered to move us to another room or credit our account, we choose credit account since we had already settled in for the 4 night stay. We will definately stay again.

We stayed here for an overnight stay and it was fabulous the staff and the whole experience was great the view was amazing, I felt I stepped back into a quiet little surfside community in the 50's the quiet streets and just the neighborhood kept me from thinking about how much Myrtle Beach has grown .

We've stayed in this hotel once before this trip and loved it then. We continue to love it now. The staff amazed me at their friendliness and excellent service. The room was very clean and looked either freshly remodeled or very well cared for. Our room was Oceanfront with an amazing view. The free hot breakfast makes this place a must-stay. We didn't have a single problem during our visit and were very pleased everything. I highly recommend this hotel and will absolutely be staying here again.

This has been the nicest best western we have stayed at. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was a nice size. We had a ground floor room with easy access to the pool and the beach. There is a nice tiki bar for drinks and a quick snack. All of the staff we met were very friendly and made our stay wonderful. They serve a standard hot breakfast which was actually pretty good. We will definitely stay again.

"It's a Different Place in Summer!"

14/06/2016

We've stayed at the Best Western many times so I hadn't planned on writing a review, but our trips were nearly always in the winter and we stayed in the Tower. This time we stayed in the summer and were offered our choice of the Tower or the Annex so we chose the Annex. Although we liked the room itself better, it did not have a direct ocean view (to be fair, we didn't ask if it did). You could see it if you looked at an angle out of one of the side windows and the walkway by the rooms was open and ended at a spot overlooking the beach. There was also just a microwave and mini-fridge but no range/oven like the Tower rooms, which was fine with us. We parked across the street and could always find a place. Breakfast was a little more variety than many places, including a machine dispensing vanilla yogurt. The breakfast room get crowded and the line could be very slow if you wanted to make waffles but seating outside helped expand the space and the weather was beautiful. One word on the walkway: the doors to the rooms are a few inches up off the walkway and there's a ridge running under the doors, painted the same brick red as the walkway, so you have to step up. Having worked in insurance for 38 years and being married to a man with a minor balance problem, I'd suggest painting that ridge with a white strip so people don't stumble at the threshold! The hotel is owned and run by family and there are always people running around cleaning it. We've recognized some staff from many years of visits. The Ocean sands is always a good, solid choice for us when visiting family in the area.

"Decent Beach Hotel"

13/06/2016

Stayed here 7 nights. Decent size, clean room with King Size, small balcony ocean view with kitchenette, fridge, stove, microwave but no room-safe. Hotel is at the beach, a bit dated but good service, helpful staff and fair breakfast. The property has a 5 story main building, a 10 story tower and an Annex facility. We requested a higher floor and were happy to get a quiet room in the tower on the 8th floor. Although there is only one elevator, it moves fast and never a long wait. There are no restaurants on the property and only an Irish pub within walking distance. Good dining and shopping on hwy 17 nearby. Overall decent beach hotel, a bit expensive when all taxes are added-in but good location if you want a bit more quiet and distance from the Myrtle Beach tourist attractions.

"Needs Upgrading"

13/06/2016

I had a king room with full ocean view and balcony, which was beautiful. The sliding door to the balcony was difficult to open and shut. There was a pay washer and drier on the floor I stayed on. It also overlooked a very small pool that hardly had anyone in it. However, the pool at their property next door was larger with a Tiki Bar. It was used more than the pool at the building I was in. There were no towels at either pool. There are no restaurants within close walking distance. There is a little convenience store across the street. Nonslip coating in the bathtub was partially gone and there were a lot of stains in the tub. It needs to be replaced or recoated. Also needs new tile. Room was clean and had sofa, TV, fridge, microwave, and chair. Wi-Fi was good, but personal cell phone service was come and go inside the building. Laura at the desk was exceptional, very friendly, helpful and personable. I cant say I wouldn't stay there again, but I would look around before settling here.

13/06/2016

Overall, I enjoyed my stay here. There were a few little things that would've made my stay a 4. We got there late to check in because we got lost due trying to find the hotel. When I called (3 times) to try to get some help, the person that answered the phone was less than helpful. She told me "you're in the wrong part, we in North Myrtle Beach...you do know that there are 2 areas, right?" Really? Geez, if I did...would I be calling you for help?? The staffs that greeted me when I got there was fine. I was put into a room that was large but smelled of fresh paint. It felt like it was a make shift type of room that they just added to their inventory. Other than that...my stay was fine. The hot breakfast was good; there's plenty of parking; pools and literally 20ft to the beach.

"Fair Price but hotel needs remodeled"

2
10/06/2016

Hotel staff was nice and curtious. They allowed me to check out early without penalty. King bed was very comfortable. Shower had full and great water pressure. In hindsight I figured the lower price charged, compared to other hotels in area, was due to the hotel needing a huge make over. Beautiful view from private balcony. The lazy river that they advertise, and are so proud of, is a joke. It is about a 40ft. oval at the most. Probably needs to say "Just for kids". All in all, I would not recommend this hotel to any one; pay more and go somewhere else.

Handicap accessibility non-existent, even tho requested.. Distance of room from main building with pool, fitness, dining unacceptable. The necessity of walking in the street to get to main building was dangerous. I would not stay at Ocean Sands again. The fact that handicap accessibility was not present necessitated my husband not accompanying me on the trip.

07/06/2016

I checked with different travel sites and then called the Hotel for a price and they gave me a price that was over $100 cheaper, so I went with them. We arrived a day earlier than our reservation and they were able to give me the room I reserved. What a great place. The staff, especially the night manager, John Penna and his helper, Bridgit were especially helpful. There were things we needed because I forgot to bring them and they got me everything I needed and with a smile. Our housekeeper, Judith, was super friendly and, again, got anything we needed. She also sat outside our room before work and talked with my wife. She made a lasting good impression of the staff. All the other staff and dining area helper were fantastic and I would recommend this Resort to anyone who wants to enjoy and fun and relaxing vacation. The prices were very affordable and with the staff they have, you cannot go wrong if you stay there. Don't stay and you will be missing out on one the the best vacations you can have. They love children there also.

really love this place and location , just have an issue with parking and only 1 elevator . And never make the mistake of showing up during bike week unless you feel like staying up all night , and hearing loud profanity and roaring of motorcycles all through the night. The employees are very professional and kind. The rooms are nice with a great view. My first stay was a lot better than my stay memorial day week of 2016 .

Staff was very pleasant and helpful, hotel is a little dated, but you can see upgrades happening every year. Breakfast is included in the cost and offered a variety of choices. It is located right on the beach and with in walking distance of a few places to shop for beach items, food, activities, etc. We have stayed there for the past 5 summers.

05/06/2016

The BW Sands Beach Resort is an excellent buy on a beach front stay. My wife , teenage daughter and myself traveled to Myrtle Beach for a five night stay. The hotel is not the cheapest stay but also far from the most expensive option on the ocean front. We were very happy with the size and cleanliness of our room with an excellent view of the Atlantic Ocean. The mattress could use an upgrade but overall the room was very nice. The pools was oceanfront nice but nothing exceptional. The hotel does have a poolside Tiki Bar. The bar opened every day around 11:00am and was a great feature. The night closing hours for the bar were inconsistent. We would have definitely liked for it to be open later. Of the five nights we were there it was opened one night past about 8:30pm. The breakfast is standard. They did have some hot items. Fruit would be a nice addition. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Johnat the front desk on check in and Renay at the Tiki Bar were just two that stand out. We enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

"Worst stay ever!"

03/06/2016

First check in took way to long. And if you don't get ocean front you are put in what they call the Annex building that is a joke. You have to walk down about 3 builds to get to pools and front office. Also no toilet tissue in bathroom and no one answers front desk to ask for supplies. Parking that is a whole other issue. There are better places to stay in the area.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Front Office Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
"And if you don't get ocean front you are put in what they call the Annex building" I believe what you meant to say was, if you BOOK AND PAY for a NON OCEANFRONT ROOM, then you will receive a NON OCEANFRONT ROOM!! The Annex building sits directly on the oceanfront but the rooms do not face to ocean ( and they are priced accordingly ). Now, we do have plenty of units which have balconies facing directly to the ocean. But with EVERY hotel on the beach, expect to pay more for these units! If you book and pay for the LEAST expensive room, then this is what you will receive?!

The hotel is perfectly located at the beach. Just walk out the back and you are on the beach. The front desk, breakfast worker, housekeeping and maintenance workers all seemed to care that your stay was the best it could be. We had to use the front desk to help find a parking spot (it appears there is only one spot per room). She found a spot for us and made sure we had everything we needed.

We would have stayed longer if they were pet friendly... Now we must bring attention to MS MARY AND MS CEE CEE they go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome and have everything you need....

We are here for our 10th anniversary with our two small children. We chose this hotel because it is rated #2 in North Myrtle. I don't know how it has acquired that rating; I wish we had stayed anywhere but here. There is no kitchenette like in the description. The freezer door is broken off of the mini fridge. There was a spider on the wall and dirt on the sofa. The light in the bathroom makes such a loud noise that I cannot turn it on for fear of waking our small children. The bathroom and sink are so small we cannot set our toiletries anywhere. We have to walk practically in the street to get to the main building for breakfast. We will not stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights in late April and found this to be one of the best hotel experiences ever. The front desk is great, friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and exactly what we had reserved. Pay a little more for the ocean view, it's is worth it. The breakfast buffet was great. It was hot and had many choices, both hot and cold. For the price, Best Western Ocean Sands exceeded our expectations. This will be our go to for any future NMB trips! P.S. Free wifi works great.

The beach location is great. The rooms are clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Warning,. The Annex building is three buildings away and you have to walk in the street to get to the pool, the tiki hut, the office and breakfast. Not fun. The vanity sink is the size of a large dogs water dish (only a slight exaggeration). The hotel added the Annex but did not expand breakfast area so it was very crowded. Stay here if you want a place to sleep but don't care about other amenities.

I made the reservation here at the last minute during bike week when my original hotel was unable to change my reservation dates by 2 days. The staff at best western was so friendly helping me with my reservation, and the last minute room I booked here was the same price as the other hotel but SO MUCH better. I was a little worried because the hotel was so much smaller (4 floors) but we had an ocean front room on the 1st floor and it was great! Room was clean, very easy access to the beach, staff was so nice, HOT breakfast was free and included in the stay. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. We didn't realize during booking that we would be staying during bike week. We were a little concerned since since we just wanted a quiet family vacation, but our stay was very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was wonderful- they had everything from sausage and eggs to waffles to muffins and fruit. Our room was very clean and had a perfect view of the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be returning!

"Just ok"

16/05/2016

So first off, I have to mention the staff because they were great. Very friendly. Checked in with me after I got to my room to make sure that everything was ok. Gave great directions and information. The average review is in regards to the hotel/room. This place is pretty outdated and didn't feel too clean. The restroom in the lobby was gross. My king oceanfront room had a very distinct, strange smell, so I kept my balcony door open the entire time (that said, there were pot and cigarette smokers nearby, so I replaced one smell with another). Bathrooms were tight. Overall appearance... blah. Breakfast was decent, though the room is way too small for the size of the hotel "resort". Parking isn't the most convenient set up. The single elevator was super slow. Mattresses could be updated as they were definitely not plush. I guess, when I'm paying over $100 a night, I expect a little more. I kept shoes and socks on at all times in my room because I wasn't convinced it was too sanitary. Again, the staff were great, so this is no reflection upon them. I just think there are probably better places to stay in this price range.

We have been going here for at least twenty years and still find this one of our most enjoyable vacations. We usually arrive in early May and the staff has always given us our same room. The property and rooms has been improved several times over the years and we never find any trouble . The cleaning staff is top notch and grounds kept in great shape. The wife and I always start with a drink from the Tiki bar with the delightful Kirsten to get the latest news in the area and she is always helpful in answering our questions as to where to eat, get drinks, or shop. We still find this one of the best values and will continue to come for years in the future..

14/05/2016

My husband and I vacationed here with my daughter, her husband, and her 3 children, and our grand-daughter that lives with us, ages, girls 3 and 7 yrs., and boys, 10 and 13. No one was bored, there were activities for everyone! The rooms were clean, and the beds comfortable, a great plus for my aching bones!!! I definitely recommend staying at Best Western and fyi the baby pool, 18 inches deep, saved the day with the 3 year old happy to play without being held. Even my very picky daughter had no complaints! Please note; We booked late and had to change rooms for the second night. It was handled smoothly. The first night we were located in their annex building three structures down from the main office. Not really good for a hobbling grandma but the room was clean and comfortable. Our second night was in the building that the office is located in. My daughters family was on the 10th floor in the largest building. Just enough space between us! Book early!

Dan was super nice and provided us a welcome package that contained some local salt water taffy, information of the area, and a couple of bottled waters. The suite was huge and very clean. We had fabulous tenth floor views of the beach and the town. I love that ocean air. From the Tiki bar at the pool, just a few steps to the ocean, and all of the fun and sun, we had a blast. Can't wait till next year. I'll be booking here again.

09/05/2016

At the last minute I decided to go to north myrtle beach after my plans to the outer banks got scrapped. Got a room on the south tower walking distance to the beach. They have a pool and a tiny lazy river there that the kids enjoy. A little tiki hut that serves drinks and snacks. They also have a hot tub too, laundry facilities- a necessary thing to have at the beach, and a small workout room. The layout is great.The rooms are huge, showers nice, microwave,mini fridge, stove, oven and sink right there for you. Great for families or for me who picked up deli stuff and snacks. Close to a ton of restaurants and shopping to get that 5.99 tshirt you always wanted. The staff is great, but parking is odd and also finding this place. Gps will not get you here. Don't even try. Get your lay of the area before arriving. By the beach it is like a grid. Your Gps will put you about 2 miles away. We had to stop for directions and where the gps said we had got there, the hotel there that we stopped knew about our problem and guided us in. Parking is odd too. There are like 3 areas to park there and so when you check in, ask a few times until you get it. I couldn't understand the map they gave me, I'm more of knowing the street name first, and parking areas later. They also give you bottled water and salt water taffy upon check in which I thought was nice. Liked the area, loved the people!

Overall a good experience. . Room was clean. Great view of the ocean. Overall staff was very friendly and helpful. Good value for stay. The sofa bed was broken but we did not report it till we checked out as we were only staying for two days. Once reporting it at check out I felt they compensated us very nicely for the issue. Our children enjoyed the pools and lazy river. Breakfast is typical and did the trick to hold our family over till lunch. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a good value right on the beach.

"Quiet and steps from the beach"

We had a room in the North Annex, quiet and just steps from the beach. The room was spacious with a king bed, a couch and table and chairs. The bathroom was small and with little room for toiletries. The bed was very comfortable the room was clean. The breakfast was an adequate continental breakfast. You could not fault the location, easy to find and easy access to and from the I17 . It was extremely good value for the location. I would definitely stay there again.

Best western was kind enough to upgrade us to a king suite for our ocean front room. Gorgeous view from the balcony. Kitchen had basic supplies. They had done some adapting to the shower head so a 6 footer fit under it and the King bed was comfortable enough that this tempurpedic owner has no complaints. Breakfast was good if not imaginative and 24 hour coffee in the front office is great. The help was friendly, the room clean. I did not notice a whole lot of cleaning of the outdoor pools which didn't bother me, I was there for the beach but they may want to keep up a bit better with it, especially the 18" deep kiddie pool since apparently a number of guests thought it was there to rinse their beach chairs off in. I would stay here again.

Helpful staff/clean comfortable room. Pool was good and hotel was steps from the beach. Great value for the money. The free breakfast left a lot to be desired. All in all I would recommend this hotel and I will stay there again.

This was a return four day stay for our 25th anniversary. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was good everyday. The only (2) thing I have bad to say was the breakfast food and items was TERRIBLE. The bed was not comfortable. Breakfast food was cold.

"We loved the balcony"

4
30/04/2016

We ended up with a handicapped room on the third floor. I am not sure it would have been very easy for a handicapped person to get to this room. Getting into the elevator is difficult as it is so tight. We had trouble with our suitcases on a cart. There are few flat surfaces in the bathroom for storing anything and I am sure handicapped people would need that also. The tub has lots of bars to get in and out, but no flat surfaces for shampoo or soap. It was necessary to place those items on the floor. The access to the balcony has a 2 inch high door track that would prevent easily rolling a wheelchair out. However, the room is very large and faces the beach. We enjoyed the balcony and left our doors open all night to hear the sound of the surf. The bed was very comfortable and the shower pressure was good. Breakfast was also available. One source of confusion was that our credit card was billed a few days before our stay in the amount of the room minus the taxes and fees which they collected upon checking in. Since I receive an email whenever a charge is made and the name on the charge did not indicate that it was the Best Western in North Myrtle Beach, I believed it was a fraudulent charge. Once I knew it was a valid charge I removed the flag through the credit card company. However, if things had been made clearer by using the name of the hotel we could have skipped all the confusion from the start.

This location was great for our week long stay! The breakfast every morning was absolutely AMAZING! The ocean front view was awesome! The room was very clean and updated. The only thing I would say is the hallways needed a little TLC, as there were wires hanging out of walls and the carpet was a little dirty. Housekeeping did a great job. The tiki bar was great! The girls at the front desk were beyond nice! Perfect location on the beach! Well worth the $!

This BW has multiple buildings. We stayed in 4 story older building with ocean front room but would not hesitate to stay in this building/room again. Office and breakfast buffet was located on 1st floor of this building. Parking in front of office was challenging, at times, but there was always easy parking just across street. Only negative was that the airflow from the AC blew across the sofa and could not be diverted elsewhere. Friends stayed in similar room.

I found this resort online and erroneously booked two rooms when only one was needed. The staff at the front desk, especially John, was very helpful in getting the problem resolved. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet so we were able to relax for the week. The resort has many pools and the Tiki Bar outside one pool was especially nice. Kirsten, the bartender, was very personable and fun to talk to. I would highly recommend this North Myrtle site!!!!

We would recommend it to family and friends and would stay there again ourselves. Great shower and tub area. Pressure and water temp was just right. Good fresh coffee offered 24 hrs. in lobby as well as room coffee maker.

Myrtle Beach is not a new place for vacationers, our beaches have been put to the test over the years with wear and tear from tourists and weather. However, through wind rain and weird people, lol. I have gone to this hotel since it was a baby lol. I can't tell you how much it's changed. Not that it was bad it was just getting worn down from sand and surf. The owners have really put an effort into bettering the staff, the lounge, the rooms. (you can eat breakfast there now!) And keeping it up and clean! I have stayed in every room possible and each one is clean and comfortable. I feel very safe and relaxed and I let my kids run back and forth freely without feeling too protective. You won't lose them in a crowd and thank the Lord Above a cute bungalow for mommy drinks is on hand. Woohoo! I recommend this hotel highly for price as well as effort. Enjoy, I always do!

CeeCee was also very helpful, she went out of her way to make sure we had all of the amenities we need plus a little treat. We are already planning next year's girls trip and will be staying here!

Staff were very good and the area of North Myrtle Beach is a quiet one, great for kids. Pool side bar is a nice touch. As it was a little cool, even for Canadians, we made use of the indoor pool and hot tub. The ocean front room was great. Breakfast was okay, but a bit crowded, could use a bigger room for this size of hotel. Overall we were satisfied with our 5 days here.

08/04/2016

Poor check in. Rooms with furniture broken and cracks in ceiling. We had to walk to the building (Annex) which was a block away in the rain. Poor parking across the street or one way in next to the building and you had to back out the street. Shaky elevator. Smelly rooms, musty. Food in the breakfast was cold, and the fruit was old.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. I did speak with the gentleman who checked you in and he let me know that your main complaint was that your rooms were not oceanfront. I understand it must be upsetting to arrive at a hotel believing you have an oceanfront accommodation, when you truly do not. In this case, you should have contacted Booking.Com and asked them why you were booked in the Non Oceanfront units. My belief is, you chose the least expensive option available. Had you opted for a higher priced room, you could have had Oceanfront accommodations! Sadly, people who have this happen often list multiple complaints simply because they are upset at not having what they thought they had booked. The reason I believe this, is we received NO other complaints of this nature from ANYONE in the building you were in. I hope in the future you are able to book the room you actually hope to have!

"Nice place to stay on a budget."

07/04/2016

My husband and I got a good price on this hotel when we stayed on a Monday-Wednesday. The king bed in our room was surprisingly comfortable and the room was very clean. The hotel is a bit dated but it is clear they have updated it and make cleanliness a priority. They serve breakfast from 6-10 in the morning. I liked not having to wake up early and rush over to breakfast. The food wasn't bad either...scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, waffles. The staff was also quite friendly. The only thing that keeps me from giving a 5 star review is that this hotel is spread out into 3 buildings. We stayed in the "annex" building which was 2 buildings down the street from where breakfast and the pool were. This was a little inconvenient only because it was quite chilly when we were there. If it were Summer it would not have been a bother.

"Good hotel with amazing staff right on beach"

We stayed for 5 nights, king bed room was spacious with couch, table & chairs and private balcony facing the ocean. The room had a small frig, microwave, small stove with oven, Corelle dishes for 4 & pots & pans. We were in the main building which had its own pool & outdoor hot tub & it was very quiet. The hotel staff are amazing! Front desk, maintenance, housekeeping all very friendly and welcoming.

"The Hotel with a Heart!"

05/04/2016

The employees make the place. They are kind and helpful and treat you like family and friends. This is convenient and on the ocean with a nice Irish pub a couple of blocks away that you can walk to. The pool area has a decent tiki bar. The rooms are nice for the price, king rooms that I have stayed in all had a kitchenette area. Drawbacks are there are three buildings that are not connected and much of the parking is across the street. The breakfast needs some improving as much of the hot breakfast appears microwaved. I think they would do better to have a better continental selection with cream cheese, bagels, more fruit, individual yogurts etc. When the hotel is full the breakfast area is very overcrowded. I would still stay here again. I think it is a good value overall and like I said I like the way the place is run.

I was with the Nitro High School baseball team playing in the Mingo Bay Classic. My family and I had a wonderful experience. The resort is clean the all of the staff met any request that we had. The complementary breakfast was very good! The resort is ocean front and is also very close to many attractions. The neighborhood is very quiet and family friendly. I would highly recommend this for a family vacation.

"Nice surprise!"

03/04/2016

Let me start saying I stayed in other Best Western properties before and I didn't have high expectations after my wife booked our Spring Break in North Myrtle Beach. Then the surprise. This property is well managed, clean and have a very friendly staff. We arrived in the night and the manager John and the lady in the reception were so friendly in helping with the check-in. Initially we were assigned with a room in the ground floor in front of the swimming pool. A clean and well maintained room, but lack of privacy as it was literally in front of the pool. John and the receptionist were proactive in our checking saying that if in the following day we wanted to move to another room it would be OK as some guests would be leaving. In the next day, we did move to a room in the 2nd floor. Clean and well maintained, but with a much nicer view (see pictures from the room. Another high point was the staff responsible for the breakfast area: polite, motivated and very attentive. The hotel is on the dunes and there is an access to the beach from the pool (1 minute walk and you are on sand). Some additional information: parking a bit challenge if you stay out at night, but I was able to park in adjacent lots every night. It was our first time in Myrtle Beach and we didn't know that North Myrtle Beach was another town, 20 minutes from Myrtle Beach boardwalk, but that was perfect as we prefer quite beaches and less noise. North Myrtle Beach is perfect if you want to spend time on the sand, playing soccer or other sports. The beach is great for jogging. Clean beach. In the area you are 5 minutes from nice restaurants. All in all, we would return to this property again. John keep up the good work and the great staff!

"Friendly & convenient, but nothing special"

3
03/04/2016

We had an overall pleasant stay at the Best Western, but it was not without issues. Check in was easy and the staff is very friendly. Getting bottled water and a bag of salt water taffy was a nice touch. The reservation process did not clearly state that this was a property with a few different buildings, so we were mildly surprised to be directed to the 10-story annex property. It's right next door but there is no direct access either by foot or car. I could see that the dividing line was marked "public beach access" so the hotel can't access it, but it's less than convenient. The parking situation is also problematic, as lots are spread around the general vicinity and not central. You get a map, of course, and there seemed to be enough spaces, but then again this wasn't high season. Our room was clean, with a lovely balcony, great oceanfront view, and a cute little kitchenette. The remote for the TV didn't work very well--every time I pressed "mute", it turned off the TV. I didn't report the problem, it was so small. And speaking of small...the bathroom was minuscule, barely room to squeeze between the sink and the toilet so you could close the door. Toiletries were limited to soap and a shampoo/conditioner combo, which seems stingy. The bed was firm and comfortable. Air conditioner worked, but no matter what the setting it never cycled off, just blew cool air without stopping. The rooms are very quiet but the doors slam so loudly it's very jarring, especially at night. It was very distressing that the (only) elevator in our building stopped working for about 12 hours during one day & night of our stay. Equipment failures happen but it's the hotel's responsibility to lessen inconvenience when they do. A simple sign on every floor which said "Elevator Temporarily Out of Order" would have saved many people lots of fruitless waiting, and also would have conveyed that the management was aware of the problem. They also should have provided assistance to people on upper floors with lots of items to carry. It was disconcerting to see elderly folks resting on the stairs, breathing heavily. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch but could use a little more variety. A selection of fresh fruit would have complemented the yogurt really well. The "make your own waffles" station was a big hit with kids. Thank you for providing free copies of USA Today! Also thank you for the free wifi, which worked perfectly even poolside. There's a nice little Tiki Bar at the pool, too. There is a fitness room & laundry, but we didn't use either. Overall, it's a cute place which is in desperate need of a facelift and some attention to its mechanical workings. A good value and a fabulous location!

Our stay was excellent. The staff was great. If any issues it would be the age of the building and 1 elevator for lots of rooms. 2 luggage carts and 1 was broken. Weight room was limited, but there were only 3 people there the 6 days we were there. Over all it was great. We will see you next year.

23/03/2016

We knew the location and other reviews were good; but we were definitely surprised at the exceptional value. The man who checked us in was SO nice. Told us we had been upgraded to an ocean front room. Turned out to be a "2 room suite". King sized bed in one room and double in the other. 2 dressers and 2 TV's which was great since we go to sleep at different times. lol Small kitchenette and nice bath between. Our ocean view was limited since we were on first floor. Property has 3 buildings and about 5 parking lots. We were in bldg. with breakfast. Next door, just a few feet away, was small wave pool, small indoor pool and good Tiki Bar which serves drinks. Our housekeeping staff was so nice. Towels were very soft. We will definitely be back!!

We went to Myrtle Beach on a very busy (and hence expensive) week. We got a terrific price on this place. The photos looked good but I was concerned it was too good to be true. It was not so bad at all. Terrific for the price we paid. Our room was steps from the Dune. Room was good size and recently painted with decent carpet. Bathroom TINY but had nice fixtures, counter top. A/C was loud and right by the bed. Smoke detector was detached and lying on the bedside table the entire time. Nice and quiet. No street and noisy guests. Breakfast was ok, not great. VERY nice check in staff. We were in the annex building a couple doors up so I was sorry the hot tub and bar were in the main building.

We stayed here mid March. The room was a nice size with a small kitchenette. Although this hotel needs updating and the beds are a little soft, the staff made up for it. We felt very welcome, were always greeted in a friendly manner, staff were attentive to our needs and our room was cleaned beautifully. If you are on a bit of a budget, this is a good choice on the beach.

Spent one night here on the beach with the family. The room was clean, ocean front view was great and had plenty of towels to take down to the pool. We arrived about 8pm and had to park across the street since all the spots under our building were taken. The beds were comfortable but I found the sheets a little bit scratchy. The pool was heated and hot tub was hot and amazing after a long day of driving. Breakfast in the morning was great, a little bit tight for the number of people in the room and only two waffle makers. We sat outside to eat since the inside tables were taken by what seemed to be seasonal renters. Everyone found something they wanted to eat so it worked out well. We'd stay here again, even better it was free with our Air Miles.

Everything you are looking for and reasonably priced. Right on the beach but not a big with hundreds of people everywhere place. They give you a great breakfast and everyone is nice and helpful.

What more can you want.

So I went back to my car, while their watched two housekeepers smoking at the corner of the building, as if they had nothing to do, for almost 10 minutes. Why didn't they help to get my room ready? When I finally got in my room about an hour later, the same two was at the corner again smoking away while the housekeeper on the floor was still working.

We love the BW Ocean Sands. I look forward to breakfast every day. I practically run down to the breakfast bar! REAL eggs, sausages, ham on occasion, waffle stations, and other regular breakfast items. Dry cereal, yogurt, fruits, etc. Location to beach access is sufficient, and just a couple of blocks from main shopping corridor. Will book again if we are in area.

This Best Western was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The customer service was impeccable. The room was large and had fast internet and a really comfortable, big bed. The housekeeping was friendly and did their job amazingly! I am quite pleased with my stay at this hotel, and highly recommend it.

"booked a room in the hotel but they put us in an annex. Terrible"

10/03/2016

We booked the room based on the website showing the rooms, balconies, pools, workout room, and they put us in an annex 4 buildings from the hotel. An old motel 6 looking building, outside entrance, dirty, terrible. We would have to go into the 5th building just to swim or anything else, then walk back wet? Terrible, very deceitful.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We are very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. That said, we would never put someone in our Non Oceanfront, annex building unless that is the EXACT room they booked. The building is directly on the ocean but the units do not face to the beach. Therefore, these rooms are PRICED much less than our oceanfront rooms! So, for anyone wanting a unit directly on the beach for a very economical price, the Annex rooms would be perfect. However, if you're looking for an oceanfront unit with a balcony facing to the beach, expect to pay a higher rate. It's that simple...

Location is great - near a lot of restaurants and golf courses. Rooms are always clean. Staff is Top Notch. Great place to book a golf trip through. Right on the beach. Breakfast is a nice touch - good selection. Beds are wonderful - important feature for a big group of mid aged golfers.

Hotel was comfortable with an adequate breakfast to start the day. We were there for the North-South Wrestling event and the hotel accommodated the participates very well. Only issue is parking is spread out over several lots.

My son had a wrestling tournament in Myrtle Beach. Stayed at Best Western on the Beach and really enjoyed it. Staff was very courteous and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was better than expected. No Continental set up here. They served real eggs, with sausage and potatoes. Definitely worth the price. Be back when the weather warms up

We have been staying at this BW for a few years and when we went to check in the hotel could not find our reservation. When John did find it someone had booked us to the Penthouse Suite for our 4 night stay. WOW the view was beautiful. There are many hotels in the area to stay at but this one has staff that makes you feel welcome and so at home. We love our yearly visit to North Myrtle Beach and to this hotel. We wouldn't ever want to stay elsewhere. The front desk has the friendliest staff we have encountered in all our stays at BW. A place to enjoy and relax.

My daughter and I traveled to North Myrtle Beach for a nearby college visit. We decided staying on the beach would be fun and we are so happy we did. The Night Manager John and Brigitte at the desk were amazing! I cannot tell you how happy I am with an oceanfront room, a kitchenette, 24/7 coffee service and free breakfast. The place is amazing, room has three separate areas so my daughter has some privacy and I get to watch my programs on my very own tv! That's right each bed has its own TV and private area with the kitchenette and bathroom in the middle. I can't wait to come back with my husband next year.

I had a terrible week, and on Thursday night I started looking at a getaway for the weekend. I found Best Western online, booked a room, and was given the most amazing room in the North Plaza. It's like the staff new I needed to destress. I actually stayed an unplanned 3rd night. Will definitely be going back.

This is our third stay at this hotel. It never fails to provide a cozy, comfortable break for our family. The beach is wide and clean; the hotel is situated in a nice quiet area of North Myrtle Beach. Staff is helpful and very friendly. My only "knock" is that the breakfast area gets crowded when weather is too cold for outside seating. We love it here and will come back for sure!

Staff very friendly, we had an oceanfront room views were amazing. Didn't like the fact we had to leave one building to get to another building for breakfast. Parking is not the best had to park across the street or either down the block. Overall hotel was nice.

Great place to stay when you are on a budget. Family had a great time here, and spent most of their time at the pool. It is nice to be right on the beach. Close to everything that you would need, not a five star, but still very nice.

Love the location and this property, right on the beach, hotel staff was very helpful as always. Fresh and hot breakfast was lovely, free parking and wifi added a great value to our vacation.

My wife and I spent a weekend in Myrtle Beach this past Valentines weekend and we stayed at the Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort, North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This was our first time at this particular property but we choose it because it was right on the beach and we had oceanfront views. Not ever having stayed at this hotel we did not know if it would meet our expectations. Expectations of cleanliness, quietness, roominess, etc. Well, I am happy to share with the world that this property met or exceeded all of our expectations. We had a great experience from the moment we arrived at the reception desk to check in until we arrived at the reception desk to check out. Great hotel with great rooms, great service, great location, great, great, great everything. We will be back! We might even bring the kids.

Well, well, well, here we go! I write for a local paper out of New Bern, NC. I plug this Beat Western everytime I go down there. The staff is tremandous. The location is tremendous. The building is older, but clean, well appointed and serves your needs. If you want to have your nose up in the air, and want "5-Star" accomodations, then don't go here, we don't need your type. Great blue collar place, great staff, they'll always have my business. Great beach access too.

The management went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable. Highly recommended if your planning on staying in North Myrtle Beach. The location is convenient to everything and the view will make your day. It's just a short walk to Molly Darcey's with great food and drink. You can drive up to Main St to enjoy the night life.

We always stay at this Best Western when we are in North Myrtle Beach. It is on the beach, has a complimentary breakfast bar, is always clean and staff are always polite and helpful. Breakfast bar is typical Best Western, but has enough options to hold one over until lunch. We always eat out at lunch, anyway.

10/02/2016

Great Place to stay for just a couple of nights. The only part that is not very good is the parking. There is not enough parking for the amount of rooms they have so some have to park and walk down the street to hotel. Beside that, the room is clean and the staff was great.

The people working at the resort hotel were very nice and helpful. The room itself was roomy with a kitchenette. They had a great pool and spa area, but we were unable to use them because it rained during our entire stay. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the property.

Everyone at the Ocean Sands Beach Resort in North Myrtle Beach made our stay a pleasure. We arrived with our nineteen year old son who is confined to a wheel chair. Once recognizing this, the staff, with no extra charge, upgraded us to a two bedroom suite which offered us more living area to accommodate our needs. The cleaning staff brought a smile to our faces when they cared for our sons bed. Once the bed was made, they found a toy of his and placed it between the pillows of his bed for him to find. We felt like we were around family our entire stay.

"Drafty room"

23/01/2016

First the staff was wonderful! Our room was dated but very clean. The door to room had a gap in it so the wind was blowing in which made for a chilly room. The heat ran constantly and never heated the room. Sink would not drain. Next time we will skip Best Western. .. just haven't had any luck with that chain. Again the staff was awesome and very positive.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
Thank you so much for the kind words about our staff. We do pride ourselves in caring for our guest's needs. That said, I could not find in our communication log where we had anyone to report the heat or draft problems in a unit. I would be interested in sending our maintenance engineer to the room you were in to correct any problems. Most importantly, I would have LOVED giving you a free upgrade to a suite so we could fix those problems! That offer will be valid ANYTIME should you decide to give us another chance!

My wife and I don't do the busiest parts of our beautiful South Carolina coast in the summer very much. But we love to head down during the off-season. We found this place to be perfect for us. Oceanfront room for slightly more than $50 a night. Clean and comfortable. Great view. Heated indoor pool and hot tub came in handy, as we were there on a chilly weekend. Loved the complimentary breakfast. Last but certainly not least, the staff was efficient and super-friendly. Great customer service.

We arrived at the Resort during a heavy rainstorm and the lobby area was in a mess. The front desk personnel did everything they could to ensure that our visit would be a good one. They were the most helpful and friendly people that I have ever seen in Myrtle Beach. They were far above the normal front desk people that I have dealt with in Myrtle Beach. Under the wet and miserable circumstances, they did all they could to make sure that our room was correct and that we knew where to get the things we needed. The room was VERY comfortable and clean and I will definitely return to this Resort the next time we are in the area. VERY good staff and very pleasant to deal with. Thank you all for a very enjoyable time there, even if the weather was horrible.

"Very Impressed"

10/01/2016

As a avid Trip Advisor writer, I will admit I don't often give an excellent but this hotel and staff totally deserve this rating. Additionally, when we visit Myrtle Beach for the past 10 years we have stayed at a specific resort, so naturally we were not sure what to expect at this hotel but the prior reviews indicated we would be pleased. Upon arrival we were greeted by 2 very friendly front desk staff. Given a welcome gift as well. Very unfortunately, I locked our car keys in our vehicle while we were unloading at the south annex building, Bridgett was a huge help in locating a locksmith for us, Bridgett kept up with our situation and later that evening contacted us in our room to ensure we were ok and things were suitable to us. That is awesome customer service. While this is a older built building, management has done an excellent job of upkeep and renovations. Every inch of that property was immaculate. We stayed in a king efficiency room, 2nd floor. The view from the balcony was beautiful. The chairs on the balcony appeared to be new, the room was very spacious, very clean, awesome flat screen tv, extremely comfortable king bed, excellent room. We utilized the indoor jacuzzi, very warm and clean, the indoor pool was also heated. While we didn't use the outdoor pool or lazy river it was very evident it was well kept. Every morning we were there we noticed maintenance staff cleaning the pool , sweeping the area around the pool and organizing the lounge chairs - keep in mind this is off season so that was impressive too. The breakfast was very good, hot foods included eggs, sausage/ham, gravy, biscuits, hash browns and waffles, everything was very tasty and the breakfast attendants did an excellent job of keeping the food well stocked, along with chatting with guest to ensure their food was good. - Another mark of great customer service. Much to our surprise while exiting the elevator the head of housekeeping introduced herself, asked if everything was acceptable in our room and let us know she had left us a small thank you for being here gift and to let her know if we had any issues with our room -- once again - another mark of great customer service. The daytime front desk staff was just as helpful as everyone else, inquiring if our stay was good and if we had any issues. I cannot express what a excellent quality hotel and staff this Best Western is, it is definitely worth staying at.

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Best Western Ocean Sands Beach Resort in North Myrtle Beach. They had a good variety of breakfast items on the buffet and provided coffee 24 hours a day. Our room overlooked the ocean. The hotel is centrally located to everything that we wanted to do at the beach. We enjoyed both the indoor pool and the hot tub. My granddaughter also enjoyed the lazy river, even though it was December - since the weather was so warm Christmas week. We will definitely be returning again soon.

"Fitness Center still needs fixing"

31/12/2015

We stay at the Best Western every year around Christmas. The location is fantastic, with a million-dollar view of the ocean right off your balcony. The staff is wonderful; they seem to be able to retain the same housekeepers and they always greet you in the elevator. The head housekeeper even remembered me from last year. Off-season rates are very reasonable. As other reviews have noted, though, there's always something that needs fixing. I try to get in a good workout every day and the fitness center equipment wasn't always in good working order; typically you could turn it on but there would be only one speed/resistance. This year, the fitness room was under construction and couldn't be used at all. The floor was cement, the machines weren't plugged in and there was a strong chemical odor. The outdoor pool and Lazy Rover were very small and, given the warm weather, typically had a few kids in them. I'm always happy to see kids playing in hotel pools, but this one was too small to share. Our TV remote was so worn that the channel buttons had been punched through and didn't work. Housekeeping cheerfully supplied another, but the worn-out one shouldn't have been there in the first place. Breakfast is very good, but crowded. I couldn't believe the quantities of sausage, waffles and eggs my fellow travelers were loading onto their plates, but the staff kept up with the demand. We'll probably stick with this hotel despite the rough edges because of the reasonable rates and the pleasant staff.

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We do apologize about our fitness room being closed. However, the reason it is closed is for renovations which are required by Best Western. Therefore, the next time you come stay with us the fitness room will be expanded and much nicer! If you happen to return in the next week or so, we will pay for your workout at a local gym! Either way, remind me about this and we'll buy you a pizza during you're next stay ( if it's your cheat day ) ;)

This is not the nicest hotel in Myrtle Beach but it is a good value. The hotel is clean and the staff are very nice. John, the night manager, has always been very helpful. This hotel is not the closest to my job but it is worth the extra drive because of the staff we have met there.

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. What we thought was going to be a leisure weekend, turned out to be the opposite. Elevator broken entire weekend, had to lug up and down 8 flights stairs if we wanted to leave the room. Desk clerk could not have cared less, never offered to change us to lower level room. Hotel was no where close to being fully booked... Paid higher price for what we thought was nice place. Will not stay here again...

"One of the Best!"

12/12/2015

I travel all the time and have in many countries and I have to say this is one of the top 5 I have ever stayed in. We stayed in the main hotel and it was spotless ! Very well maintained- (carpet, painted walls, fixtures, pool,Jacuzzi,furniture). The staff were very friendly ,readily available, often asked if we needed anything and extremely helpful with luggage, opening doors-etc. Breakfast each morning was well stocked in an immaculate area with a staff member present to help us. Beach was easy to access and plenty of parking close by. Our 2 queen bed room was spacious- loved the bathroom separating the beds to give privacy. Nice balcony with chairs to view the ocean and kitchen area. We have stayed in other higher priced hotels in this area but WILL stay at this superior hotel from now on when we come.

"Right on the beach"

07/12/2015

Would stay again. Was there in Dec, so most things in the area were closed. Water was cold, but we still walked the beach every day. A few of the gift shops were open. Lots of restaurants were open. Good time if you don't like crowds. There were a few things that were disappointing, but not enough to make us leave or not come back. The hotel has 2 bldgs. There is only a couple spots for parking at both bldgs. The rest of the parking is across the street. In summer, not sure if it would hold all the cars. Our room did not have a stopper for the tub. If you had kids you would not be able to give them a bath. The tub is to shallow for an adult bath. The sliding doors to the balcony were very noisy. The coke machine on the 7th floor had cans that expired in June.

"staff is incompetent"

1
07/12/2015

the guy working the counter should be fired. he sent my wife and 4 kids away at 10pm because the incompetent staff overbooked the hotel. the rude people that work here should have gone out of their way to help find a room some where else. instead they just said they couldn't accommodate them. no concern for the safety of my family or even the common courtesy to apologize for being ignorant.

"DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY!!"

06/12/2015

Every one of the staff members went above and beyond their duty to make our stay the best possible stay it could be! We had previously told them we were bringing my daddy who had had a severe stroke and is not in good health so we wanted this trip to be special. They honored our requests when we needed them, made sure we had plenty of clean linens since we were a huge crowd, made sure our trash was taken out, we had tp, soap, shampoo etc. We even "rented" a special wheelchair for my daddy from the city of Myrtle Beach and the hotel offered to care for the wheelchair until the city could pick it up Monday (they were closed on the weekends) since we had to leave Sunday. The rate was perfect considering it was Thanksgiving and all surrounding hotels were booked. The heated outdoor lazy river and pool and the indoor pool as well as the hot tub was great for relaxing! The view from our room was terrific as well! I am VERY VERY pleased with our stay!! I would highly recommend this resort to any of my friends and family members! We will definitely stay here again!!

"Great oceanfront rooms"

5
06/12/2015

Every room is oceanfront, so you don't have to wonder what you will get. Every room has a balcony facing the ocean directly. We often go in the off-season (December) and so we do not swim or use their pools, but they are conveniently located not too far north of the Alabama Theater and Carolina Opry and malls.

02/12/2015

When we made our reservations we were told an ocean front room was unavailable. We were booked in the annex building That building does not have a walk way to the main building. You have to walk in the street or cross the road to the sidewalk.. The path to the beach is overgrown and hard to walk. Lighting in the bath is horrible.The bathroom had a tiny wet bar sink.. When taking a shower the water would run cold every time. brrrrrr. People in the next room smoked outside our door and when we opened our door the smoke would billow in. The furniture was hard and uncomfortable.. Drink machine was on the first floor, ice machine on the second nothing on the third.. I wrote a review and the manager sent a message that he would have upgraded us. The sigh had NO Vacancy. How could he do that/? He said he called our room , no call on our phone. We had to walk in up the street for breakfast. Breakfast was cold and overcooked. The coffee was good. My husband is recovering from cancer after nine years. We were so excited to go to the beach. Always had confidence in Best Western. Not anymore, will not ever book there again.

We enjoyed our stay. Very nice staff. Hotel was clean. Great location oceanfront. Nice breakfast. The only thing that I would change would be the parking. Depending on how full the hotel is you might need to park a little walk away from the buildings.

This is all you can get if that is not enough then you need to check out the Motel yourself. Some times just a few words says it all and no need to write a book telling how you enjoyed your stay. So thank you and goodnight John Boy.

We were passing through and needed a place to stay for just one night. Hotels.com had this hotel for $45/night. The hotel couldn't give me that rate but suggested I book it through hotels.com and we could get that rate. Ocean front efficiency with free breakfast for $45 is a really good deal. Hotel is older but clean. Breakfast had a good variety. John Penna, the Night Manager, is a great Ambassador for the hotel and the area.

Excellent venue - would definitely stay again. I travel for a living and have stayed in a lot of hotels in my time, and this one was among the best (if not the best) I've stayed in for the past five years of traveling. Very clean, excellent service, and the view (I was ocean-side) is excellent. Ample parking and located on a pretty quiet street made for an additional bonus. Looking forward to my next stay!

We were lucky to have such great weather during the second week of November. The school kids were in school so the town and quiet and very relaxing to get around. The area is filled with entertainment such as the Carolina Oprey and we took in the Pirates Voyage dinner and show.

This is a great hotel for the price I paid. It is oceanfront and the staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone to stay in. There is a store within walking distance to the hotel and very safe area.

We stayed Friday and Saturday night. The staff was extremely friendly, the room was very clean, it was a little too chilly to swim but the pools looked really nice. We didn't try the indoor pool or the hot tub but it was available for use. We had an oceanfront room and was able to watch the sunrise with no issues. I didn't take any pictures of our room but I have zero complaints. There was an outside tiki bar with a free happy hour from 5 to 530. Very pleasant bartender named Kerston who had a great sense of humor as well. Very easy access to the beach too. There is a little market across the street if you need to pick up something like snacks, drinks, or souvenirs. Wonderful place. We definitely plan on returning.

Great room, service, breakfast, free paper, very friendly and helpful staff. Great view, except for top of tree Now I know what room not to stay in. Going for a month next year, instead of 2 weeks. Try it, you will like it!!!!!

Nice view, but watch out BW has this thing you get different rates on different nights which kinda sucks. This place is run down and smells. There is no beach to speak of except at low tide. I would not stay again. Staff wasn't that helpful and beds just ok.

We stayed here just one night while on business. Again, no towel bars in the bathroom--I see this is a trend these days, but I don't get it! The room was a decent size but the hotel is old and you can feel its age. The worst aspect for me was that damp mildewy smell from the AC unit, which is unfortunately very common in an older hotel at the beach. The room comes with a kitchenette, but you'd better bring your own dishes (there was one plate and that was it). There is a sign telling you how much you will be charged if any of the items disappear from the room. It's couched something like this: "Due to the popularity of our room items, they are available for purchase. If one of them is missing, we'll assume you're buying it and you will be charged. Here is the cost" and goes on to list the cost of the coffee pot, sheets, towels etc. It gave us a chuckle, actually. The staff was friendly and having a balcony overlooking the ocean was lovely.

The staff was very helpful and knew the area very well. Ocean view room was great with a sensational sunrise for some great pictures which helped make our trip. Breakfast was one of the best in any of the Best Western Hotels we've stayed in. Great job will return again

Our golf group comes here every year. It's a perfect location for the beach and golf courses! The staff treats us very well and has for many years. The price has always been affordable. The clean up crew and housekeepers work very hard to keep the place going. We will continue coming as long as we can!

"Very bad "

30/10/2015

The room was dirty and in dire need of an upgrade. Most of the staff was very rude. The only thing good to report is that the outdoor bar area was okay and the location is great. My wife won three nights on a radio station give away so after seeing that this place had a 3 star rating, we added four more nights....big midtake

BEST WESTERN OC... H, Manager at BEST WESTERN Ocean Sands Beach Resort, responded to this review
We believe you have posted to the wrong hotel! We have not had anyone stay with us for free from a radio station giveaway.! Also, we couldn't find anyone under Rick R, let alone anyone staying with us from Roanoke in the past couple months! Third and most important, we take huge pride in our staff and their friendliness. Hearing that the staff was rude makes us truly believe you stayed elsewhere!

"Great Hotel"

30/10/2015

This is a great hotel for the price, close to all the attractions. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our view of the beach from out balcony and room. We would even leave the balcony door open and listen to the ocean while laying in bed. The breakfast was good and the staff kept it well stocked. Our only complaint would be that there is only one exercise room and depending on what tower your in you have to walk over to it, also there was only one treadmill. My husband would have to wait for others to finish using it, and others had to wait on him to finish.

Had the pleasure of taking a weeks vacation at North Myrtle Beach. Stayed at the Best Western Ocean Sands. Had a great time!! The Staff and all the support workers are always a pleasure to talk to and made our stay very enjoyable. The room was perfect, the pools were clean and enjoyable and the Tiki Bar was fun!! :) Hope to get back down in the Spring.

This is our sixth yearly North Myrtle Beach vacation and we stay in this Best Western each time. It's conveniently located, clean, personable and helpful staff, comfortable beds, and a tasty no-cost breakfast. We like the Tiki Bar tended by Kirsten, and there's an indoor pool as well as outdoor pool Lazy River. Calling on "Cyber Monday" yields us a 25% discount on the current price.

The staff is amazing. Ocean front room with kitchenette. Clean. Out door and in door pool. There truly is nothing wrong with this place. Breakfast included. Tiki Bar on the premises. Molly Darcy's has excellent food no is 2 blocks away. Managers aim to please as does everyone that works here.

A great four day stay in the north end of the Grand Strand. First time for us in this neck of the woods and we enjoyed it very much. All other visits have been in the south end. We have been coming to Myrtle Beach for about 25 years and it never disappoints. We love the dependability of the Best Western chain and we try to stick with it.

We had a wonderful stay at the Best Western Ocean Sands in North Myrtle Beach this past week. The view from our ocean front room was fantastic. The staff were personable and really helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean. It was easy to get to Route 17 but was not on a busy road - -so was relatively quiet. We really enjoyed our stay.

Everything that we thought it would be, and more! First time staying Ocean front and with the timing of our trip being "Off" season, Best Western had some great deals. We also had Rewards points from credit card cash back deals so the final price made extra cash available to spend else where!

Two night, mid-week stay with husband. Have stayed at this motel many times and each stay is very good. Building and furnishings a little dated but does not detract from its great location, very helpful staff, very good hot buffet breakfast, free wi-fi, private ocean-view balconies and fun, on-site Tiki Bar. Indoor pool is small but mid-week we had it to ourselves. I made two changes to our room location upon arrival and front desk staff cheerfully and willingly accommodated my requests. Have always found staff helpful from housekeeping, to maintenance to front desk. Good value; will definitely stay again.

We only stayed here for one night, as we were flying out of the Myrtle Beach Airport (which is about a 20-25 minute drive). I liked that it was in a quiet residential area and right on the beach. The views of the beach were beautiful. The value is amazing, we paid $60! So, for that, I have no complaints. Everything was clean, but this is a no frills place. There is free parking and a free breakfast as well, so how can you beat that!

even with the flooding in sc this place went out of there way to accommodate our needs when we arrived the water was everywhere streets closed ,the parking lot under the motel was flooded with in a couple hours in was gone.we love this place and will go there when ever we vacation in the area

We were in Myrtle Beach to be with family. The motel was clean, had a good sleeping bed, and a very friendly, helpful staff. There was easy access to the beach. We had a good night's sleep, and were able to be on our way the next day with a full stomach and rested.

"A Bit Pricey But Very Enjoyable"

14/10/2015

We pulled in after a long drive and starting feeling the chill-out vibes almost at once. We paid extra for an ocean-front room and thought it well worth the money. The place could maybe use a bit of updating but we found everything clean enough. The mattress was very comfortable and receives an A- on our International Mattress Rating scale. The A/C as noisy as is often the case but we have experienced worse. The room was spacious even though we were only able to get a room with two queens instead of a king. We had brought food with us knowing that there is a microwave and a mini-fridge in the room. There also was a small table that allowed us to eat comfortably and in modest elegance while looking over the beach to the ocean - what more do you want? The hot breakfast was very good, with a wide range of options. We did not check the in-room wi-fi. Just two minor quibbles. (1) The check-in manager meant well and was friendly, but we would have appreciated greater efficiency and a faster check-in to his chattiness - no sense that there was a line of (probably equally road-fatigued) guests wating to check in. (2) They have a lovely Tikki Bar with well made, very reasonably priced cocktails, but the barmaid ... her German accent and overall manner to us would have made us wonder if she was from the Hitler Youth had she been a bit older. Even though we were well dressed and courteous, we were completely and deliberately ignored for nearly 15 minutes. Oh well. We have stayed in much more expensive places that also failed to achieve perfection, and we didn't let this spoil our enjoyment.

My family stayed during the horrendous rain/storm. Overall, great value & amenities. Toniann at the front desk provided EXCELLENT customer service !!! She does her job very well! Renay was also very helpful. She personally delivered extra pillows to our room. Good food choice variety for breakfast, something for everyone. Waffle Maker is a great touch! Quality of coffee is terrific. Short stay, however, would stay again.

The Best Western Ocean Sands is an incredible place to stay! We've been there during all 4 seasons and the staff and facility never disappoint! The value, cleanliness and ocean view are wonderful! What really does it for us is the staff! Helpful, courteous and friendly are just a few words to describe them! Housekeeping does a great job of providing special care, the front desk staff including John, Earl and others are caring and the general manager is ready to make your stay what it should be! The surprise free upgrades are very welcome! Thanks for another super visit! Always feel like I am "home!"

12/10/2015

The furnishings, carpet and decor are in need of an update. The bathtub/shower and fixtures need replacing or refinished, showing lots of wear. Basic cable is offered with no exceptions, HBO or a premium movie channel would have been nice. The management and staff however could not have been any better. There level of service would have compared to a five star hotel.

"Another great stay!"

My family has been coming to this hotel for 16 years. It is absolutely the best. The rooms are very nice and always clean. The house cleaning crew is great starting off with A wonderful woman we have became great friends with named Cece. The management is equally impressive. Dan the manager goes above and beyond to personally see that our every stay is wonderful. And to top all this off, you can't beat the price! You really need to check this place out. I promise you make this your place to stay she. You visit myrtle beach.

I highly recommend this Hotel to anyone either going into the area for business or pleasure. My husband and I enjoy going there for the people, the scenery and the relaxation. This is our second year in a row and will continue to go there as we have met many caring and devoted people. Best Western in my estimation is the best Hotel around and I am sure others would agree as well.

KUDOS to the entire staff here. They worked tirlessly during the historic rainfall to keep us safe and comfortable! They remained happy and eager to assist despite horrible weather. My conference was cancelled Friday evening when the rain burst down and flooding started. We stayed thru the morning and had to decide to travel home or stay until Monday as we first planned. We figured we were safer in the hotel instead of out on the roads. We were glad we decided to stay and take inn football all evening Saturday & all day Sunday with what better view than the ocean! Great Staff!!
