We stayed October 11th-17th (paid through to the 18th but checked out early) tower 3 room 936. The hotel looked very run down. The other guest were "a rough crowd" not a family atmosphere. I would not feel comfortable walking to my car alone. One night we saw a older couple doing very inappropriate things in the hot tub. Our... More

Spent two nights for a women's retreat. The hotel has 3 towers and can be difficult to navigate for older customers. It is an older hotel, and has typical signs of sea water wear. It was a real challenge accessing towers for a different tower. I think it needs a bit more signage. It is family friendly and I am... More

We just stayed for 3 nights following the torrential rains that the state of SC received. The hotel was great. Our room was ready and they let us check in early.
