Nice place. A little dated but still a good place. Entertainment by the pool bar was good. Pool was nice and warm. Only thing that was not good was the bugs in my room that had been attracted to the spilled ice cream outside my patio by the pool. That hadn't been cleaned up. Also beds were a bit uncomfortable....

Tired, worn out and would not recommend. Great location but not very clean and the pool was really cloudy. Rust on appliances and the kitchenette was not stocked adequately. Bathroom tub had standing water in it. You could basicly see through the bed sheets they were so old.

I read alot of reviews before I booked this place and it had a 50/50 chance of my approval; so I did. First, it is an old and outdated building however; it was clean and the staff was friendly and fun. When it is just me and my husband we want clean, bug free, friendly staff and location. This place...

I highly recommend the Castaway Inn. The staff was SUPER. They immediately notified me that they were evacuating and closing due to Hurricane Matthew. The location is directly on the ocean front.I will stay again but NOT during a hurricane.

The best part of this place is that it is located directly on the ocean. That is where is ends. We arrived on Thursday and we were greeted by the hotel check in staff and went up to our room on the second floor. The paint was peeling. The electric outlets did not have covers. The circuit breaker box was...

My husband and I found this hotel online. The photos look good on the site so we decided to celebrate our 2 year anniversary trip in Myrtle Beach, SC since we had never been there before. We arrived at the hotel after a 7 hour drive from Atlanta. A young girl checked us in. The room that was given to...

We stayed for 1 night. Initial check in with staff was extremely nice. The rate for the room was decent. The room needs upgrading most definite! The room we had was very clean but dated. IF they spent the money for renovations this place could be the perfect little getaway. We were right by the barand pool on the first...
