We attended a timeshare presentation for Holiday Inn Vacation Club in South Myrtle Beach and this is the hotel they put us up in for a week. We were a little nervous not to be on the "Grand Strand", but now we are thankful we were not in Myrtle Beach. The hotel is a little dated, but still nice. They... More

Ultimate reason for going to Myrtle Beach was to meet up with my niece who is a Marine in North Carolina.... and to go to a timeshare (yuck) presentation. The timeshare perk was 4 days and 3 nights free, so I snagged it. They put us up at the Holiday Inn at Murrells Inlet and it was a pleasant surprise.... More

If you can arrange for the suite, the extra room is nice to have. Friendly and helpful staff made this a highlight stop on our way further south. This is close to Brookgreen Gardens, so this would pair well with that venue.

The biggest impression made on me was by the incredibly friendly staff. The room was fine, as were the other amenities. No real complaints. But the staff was so nice and accommodating. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast ladies were sweethearts! We would have loved to be oceanfront but we were very happy with our stay.
