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 …
Can't believe the month is already over!! Yesterday we had our last round of golf and did a quick last drop in at the outlet mall. Today, we're hoping to do one last run on the beach and have one last hot tub. We'll spend most of the day packing up, cleaning the condo and loading the car. (We're planning on being on the road early tomorrow morning.) NYC here we come! We'r e hoping they have power by the time we get ...
Ken is a golfer. He wasn't when I met him 25 years ago but as time has progressed he has become more and more of a golf 'addict'. It doesn't matter where we should happen to park the house, he can always find a golf course! He golfs 2-3 times a week and I have learned to be a fairly supportive spouse - most of the time! In reality, his being out golfing gives me a bit of a break, from him! I always say the ...
Another wonderful day that ended with a late swim (5ish). As we're out in the water swimming, Rick spots a family of dolphins swimming about 100 yards from us!! We spent the next 15-20 minutes watching them eat dinner! What an amazing way to end the ...
... not attract the heat like black). A huge difference compared to the all black outfit I wore to New Orleans last year. The weather was great, very little traffic and the roads were in excellent shape. Much of the time was on four lanes, lined with trees and the trees were noticeably cut back from the side of the road, creating a very wide swath. Then, I started to see the signs - 'Evacuation Route'. Oh yes, I'm in hurricane country. There were all sorts of trees (coniferous ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsPalmetto Shores Oceanfront Myrtle Beach
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.
