By outward appearances, it looked like a good place to stay! We prefer mom and pop type hotels, so we gave it a chance. The first room they checked us into smelled strongly of cigarette smoke, despite their very strict no smoking policy. They promptly changed our room. Our next was slightly better. We're thinking this was a smoking hotel...

If you would like to spend the night with other guests roaming the public areas with open containers, smoking pot, shouting obscenities and generally disturbing the peace, this is the place for you. If then, when you complain, the manager tells you it is those guests "right" to do those things, that they are "human beings" who work "11 hours...

I apologize that your stay was not to your satisfactory, however I'm afraid you left out A few parts. One of which your daughter standing in the parking lot giving unfriendly hand gestures as well as when she left she was hanging out the window yelling as she was driving off. I do sympathize with you that you did not...

This place was just perfect for our brief stay and rather inexpensive. We showed up really late, got our room and it was clean and warm. Its a motel, but is ocean front and has a pool. Rather over looked by the bigger guys, but let me tell you, I would go back in a heartbeat. Best ocean front rates...

the staff was very helpful to me and my friend. Very small little hotel. Kind of noisy at times but right on the beach and very close to the attractions. Has both unsmoking and smoking rooms. I got the bottom level just like I asked. Was not charged a deposit. Parking was small but did have extra.

This will have been our third stay at The Mermaid Inn, great location for beach access, clean and friendly. Perfect for a 3 night stay avoiding the noise and bustle of Myrtle Beach. Pet friendly too and plenty of space to walk dogs. Rooms are well maintained, a little dark but then it is an old style Motel property. There...

This little old school motel sits between two mega hotels on the beach. Rooms are very clean and decorated in fun bright beachy colors. Pool is beach front. Staff are very friendly. Pet friendly was a plus for us.

NOT an ocean view as advertised. ALL rooms face the parking lot. The beach area is small and gross and you can't see it from the hotel anywhere. The tub had hair in it and even after I wiped it out, it was still so dirty that I wouldn't take a bath. So I took a shower instead but the...

I was visiting Myrtle Beach with a friend and we had the pleasure of staying at The Mermaid and spending most of our time in the pool there or at the beach. The hotel is literally right next to the beach. The rooms and lobby are perfectly themed. The rooms had everything we needed, including a microwave and a fridge....
