“Perfect for our Wedding Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This resort is spectacular. We stayed here on our wedding night after having out reception at Ruth's Crist Steak House next door. The exterior entrance to the rooms was a little run down and scary, but the room itself was the most beautiful room I have ever stayed in. It was spacious, beautiful, well appointed, and I loved the fireplace, private balcony, full kitchen, and amazing bathroom.

We did not spend much time in the resort area, but the pool was nice. If I were going to look for a hotel to stay at in myrtle beach, I would prefer an oceanfront hotel, but this hotel is truly awesome for someone looking for luxury without much concern for the beach.

We spent yet another great several days in Myrtle Beach at the Marina Inn @ Grande Dunes. We celebrated our 35th wedding anervisary and had a lovely time, as usual, when visiting Myrtle Beach. Even though it isn't officially yet beach weather, although it was 70 degrees, we walked the beach and always marvel at how incredible it is there.
You must put Myrtle Beach and the Marina Inn @ Grande Dunes on your list of places to visit. You will be forever in love.

Room Tip: Get a location overlooking the golf course and Intercostal Waterway. VERY peaceful and relaxing.

At first blush, this hotel looks brand spanking new, beautifully designed and elegant. A closer inspection revealed elevators in need of TLC, furniture with worn edges and a bed spread with burn holes in it. Morning coffee in the lobby was a challenge. One morning it was taken away by 9:30. The next day, much earlier, it was all empty. No one was attending it. On the upside, comfortable beds, prompt service in the restaurant, and excellent valet service.

Dear steveofoto1,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to provide your feedback concerning your recent stay with us here at the Marina Inn at Grande Dunes. We truly appreciate it when our guests take time to share their experiences with other TripAdvisor.com members and future travelers.

I was very disappointed to read that we did not meet 100% of your expectations during your most recent stay. We pride ourselves on being a 4 Diamond resort here in Myrtle Beach and always try to go above and beyond for all of our guests.

Your comments highlighted some areas of opportunity and we are currently working to resolve those issues. We are in conversations with our elevator company to determine a solution to address the interior cabs, by making them cleaner and brighter looking. Our engineering team is currently working on a preventative maintenance program which includes furniture repairs and re-staining. Lastly, housekeeping has performed a complete and thorough inventory of all linens and bed spreads to eliminate any future issues.

Again, thank you so much for sharing your feedback, we truly appreciate your opinions and I hope you will afford us another opportunity to stay with us again.

Sincerely,

Mark Burlyn
Front Office Manager

We planned a Valentine's long weekend in Myrtle Beach and researched hotels carefully before selecting Marina Inn for our 3-night stay. We certainly were not disappointed. The property isn't at the beach ... it's an intracoastal waterway property with yacht parking for guests traveling by water. Our very large studio suite was top floor of the Marina Tower, with a gorgeous view of the boats and the intracoastal from our balcony. We were very pleasantly surprised that valet parking was included in the price of the room - we're using to paying $18-$30 nightly extra for this service. Wireless internet was also included, so the price quoted was actually the price charged ... a refreshing change from so many high end hotels which nickel and dime guests. Even the restaurant prices were incredibly reasonable, and the menu had a good variety. The property is gorgeous and well maintained. The room included beautiful furniture, a refrigerator and microwave, even a DVD player. The gym had adequate, clean equipment, and the indoor pool is a nice touch when it's too cool to swim outside. Both were open 24 hours, which works well for us nightlife types. Bed was so comfy we could barely get up, and the room darkening curtains ensured slumber long after daylight. Housekeeping didn't complain when we made them wait every day till late afternoon to clean. Loved in room coffee, bathrobes, extra large towels, extra large bathroom with separate tub, toiletries (LOVE body wash instead of soap) entirely non-smoking facility, etc. And the staff was very professional and so gracious. The front desk staff even offered to take our photo in front of the beautiful lobby fireplace while we were checking out. We'll be back soon !

Room Tip: I'd be surprised if there's a bad room on the entire property.
