I have stayed at the Castaway Beach Inn for two years now, and I am excited to say that I will be coming back for a third time next year. The hotel has greatly improved their service, rooms, and amenities. The service I received with the front desk was over the top. If I ever had any questions or concerns,...

Third time staying at castaway beach, room's always clean, great oceanfront view. Poolside bar is a plus. Staff accommodating with requests, daily clean towels without asking. Ample free parking. Walking distance to several eateries.

I came for a long weekend with many of my friends to celebrate the start of summer. I had never stayed at this hotel before, but I heard good things from friends who went a year ago. I am very happy that I decided to stay at this establishment because it was a budget friendly hotel that offered many amenities....

Overall, I have to say this destination absolutely exceeded my expectations! All facilities were clean and perfectly kept. The pool and lazy river were perfect for relaxing and spending time with friends/family. I visited when they were still known as "By the Sea" but the improvements they've made are incredible. The staff was so friendly and always willing to go...

I wasn't expecting to love the hotel me and my friends were staying at for our Myrtle trip, but the Castaway Beach Inn absolutely blew me away from the start. For starters, the amenities the hotel has like the lazy river, pool, and beachside bar and grill were very enjoyable and allowed us to diversify the day with different fun...

This hotel has changed names (used to be By The Sea), but it is still run by the same people. It was easy to make our reservations. Michelle and Michelle at the front desk are great and so welcoming. Gloria the maid always said hi to us and cleaned our rooms when asked. Rooms were clean, huge fridges for our...

The staff is really friendly and the manager exceptionally so; epitome of Southern hospitality. The rooms are dated and not in great shape. Beds not super comfortable. The beach is right out your window; easy access to the beach and it's so beautiful. The prices are fair- you get what you pay for. If your interested in a ritzy joint...

Very inviting place. Loved the hospitality. Loved the bar. Loved how close to the beach. Will definitely visit again. Not expensive do there's more money to take the kids to do things. Very clean although not as updated as some.

My boyfriend and I arrived in NMB for a planned stay at a friend's beach house, but because of a mix up with a contractor doing work on the house the key was not in it's hiding place and the contractor could not be reached. I immediately started looking for a place that was oceanfront or located close enough to...

We waited to reserve our room too late for the Easter weekend and ended up staying here. The cost was very low for a place on the beach. Pros: The woman behind the counter who checked us in was very polite and professional. The room was just a stone throw from the beach. There was an outside bar. Cons: Not...
