We were so excited to finally be able to go on vacation, however it all went to pot! Literally! When we checked in, we were told that the hotel was a non-smoking hotel. On the each day, we smell smoke. On the third day, we smelled marijuana. Yes, we complained. Another horrible experience was maid staff. Every time they entered...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

We chose this hotel based on reviews and price. We weren't disappointed! Check-In was fast, staff was very friendly. The welcome bag of taffy, crackers, water, and coupon booklets was so nice! Housekeeping brought more taffy the next day, and my kids loved it. :) It was an extra special touch. The suite was clean, nicely furnished, comfortable, and had...

We stopped here one night on our road trip home from Florida. I am sure this is one of the older hotels in Myrtle Beach but they try to keep it updated. The 3 buildings was a bit confusing at first. Parking is a premium here and located across the street. Check in was easy and the goodie bag was...

My wife and I wanted to do a little golfing while enjoying the sun. We booked this hotel based on location some time ago. The vacation did not start off well. We asked to see the room on arrival. The efficiency area was old. The balance was also very tired and in need of updating. The staff was very apologetic...

This was my first time staying at this Best Western. Had read a few reviews and seemed like pretty good feedback. We were treated with awesome service from the front desk. Once we walked into our room I was a little disappointed. Room definitely needs to be upgraded. The carpet was all bumpy and I couldn't tell what might be...

We have been coming here for the last seven years. The first two years were great. Not one single complaint. We are snow baby's. We loved coming here. Then year three and everything changed. They used to clean the pool everyday now your lucky if they clean it once a week. Housekeeping would change your sheets whenever you want. Now...

To be perfectly honest, this is one strange review. You've stayed with us the last 7 years yet it's been bad for the past 3 years? And you still managed to hang in there for that long? And monthly rentals in January pay about $28 a day. This is why we service the room once a week only. Now, we...

Our family has stayed at the Best Western Ocean Sands for years and it is always a great place to stay. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and very helpful. Also, the consistency and longevity of the staff is impressive and is an indication of good management.

Had a great stay! Check in was easy. We had a suite with a beautiful view of the ocean. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. We were greeted at check in with salt water taffy, which was a sweet way to start our vacation. Definitely will be back if we come back to North Myrtle!

The best thing about this hotel is the view, assuming you have an ocean view room. This hotel has not been updated in "years". There are no door closures on stair exit doors and therefore they slam every time someone uses them. The location is great.

Thanks for the review. However, we are constantly upgrading and renovating our hotel. We recently have added new carpets and hardwood floors to almost every room!
