First Thing's First: The Drive
At 3:33 am, we were running on three hours of sleep, Hazelnut coffee, and pure adrenaline. Katy and I were off and, as our friend Tom Petty would say, into the great wide open unsure of what particular kind of chaos that would undoubtedly ensue.
The drive to Myrtle Beach, a seemingly daunting task …
let me say if you haven't stayed at Briarcliffe RV Resort in Mrytle Beach. You
should. Super nice, felt safe (gated) clean and great location to everything. We spent 10 glorious day here with family. Lauren & Miles and baby, Miles & Karen Crovitz, Logan, Gerald & Judy Nelson stayed in a super nice condo Sands Beach Resort. ...
Spent entire day on beach at Mrytle Beach. Celebrating Baby Miles 1st birthday with family.
Lauren did an excellent job planning & organizing to get everyone together. She even made and decorated his 1st birthday cake.
Baby Miles got so caught up in the event at the beach. He had to take a nap before the festivities ...

We had a great time in Myrtle Beach, but that was in huge part to the people. The hotel, on the other hand, was less than satisfactory. After a 10 hour, all day drive, maintenance knocked on our door at 9:15 pm to put Draino in our tub. We asked for them to come back the next day because we were sleeping, but alas, they never came. The third day, maintenance was upstairs "working on something" and suddenly, a monsoon was falling through our ceiling. "Great," we thought, and ran to the front desk for some assistance. There was debris everywhere from a previous botched patching job including what we can only assume was black mold. Sweet. After going to lunch, and an assurance from the staff that it would be taken care of, we came back to a dry floor and the same debris all over our clogged tub. We talked to the front desk 4 times that day to get someone to take care of the tub, and when someone finally came, we were out at dinner. Upon our return to the hotel, whoever "cleared" the drain left the blockage of hair and "gunk" in the unflushed toilet. What stellar service.
All maintenance issues aside, this hotel is in prime location for the beach, boardwalk, and bars. The best part about the hotel is their restaurant, The Patio. The staff there is friendly, outgoing, funny, and knew how to pour a fantastic drink. We loved The Patio and its staff of eclectic and wonderful people who quickly became friends. It was home away from home.
If you can get passed the clogged tubs, stay here simply for the staff of The Patio.
