Not sure what everyone complaining about. I stay for two days once when I was traveling by myself. I clerk even offered me a special small room since there was no one but me. It was very clean, but it was very small . I could almost touch both sides of the room . But the price was right and...

Stay away from here at all costs. Terrible and rude service. Never have I ever encountered such nasty service. When I arrived there to check into a room, the receptionist said, "hello, how can I help you?" I politely responsed by telling her that I was interested in checking into a room for the weekend and almost immediately she stood...

The picture included for this property is not The Dolphin Motel located at 1505 N Ocean Blvd. Myrtle Beach, SC 29577. Also, from reading some of the review below, it is apparent that a few of them did not stay at The Dolphin located at this address. Please make sure you are reading accurate information before you make decisions based...

I wish that the owners of the Dolphin would come remodel my bathroom to look like the bathroom in our room at their motel! The whole bathroom had been completely gutted and redone. I love the corner shower with the sliding door. I've never seen anything like it. The main room had just been repainted, and new flooring had apparently...

My family and friends have been staying at the Dolphin for years, and it has changed hands a few times. The current owners also own the Sea Park Motel next door, and the Carolina Tarheel, which is on the corner of 18th Ave. N. and Withers Drive. Sure, the Dolphin is a little, shall we say, rustic, but the rooms...

my stay at the dolphin was straight from a horror movie! Half of the lights did not work, the door would not shut all the way, and if you got the door shut you had a wonderful veiw of the parking lot through the massive crack at the top of the door. The window was duct taped up which made...

I really love Myrtle, and every time I go there with any of my friends, we always stay at the Dolphin. It is cheap, clean, and has a very friendly staff. I'm sure there are a billion different hotels to choose from, but I'd choose the Dolphin over them all.

Whoever rated the Dolphin as "cozy" and a "palace" ostensibly grew up in a pig sty or had way too much to drink or hasn't yet recovered from the hangover. Nothing (and I mean NOTHING) in the rooms has been updated in several decades. The shower was so disgusting that I was ankle deep in water after one minute. Two...
