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.

Under leaden skies and the kind of rain to get Noah reaching for his timber yard discount card, we left our lovely apartment in Sunset Beach and commenced the next leg of our journey. We paid a brief visit to Myrtle Beach which easily maintained its reputation for tackiness. At one of its more tasteful attractions, a ...
... the challenges of the local 'mini golf' courses. They are mini-golf courses like nothing we've ever seen before. One even has a volcano (about 25 feet high) that spews out pink water (simulated lava)!
Oh and I also spotted an alligator in the golf course lake just outside our condo this morning …
More news soon … hopefully tomorrow when the Internet connection is sorted.
Much love to all
... warm enough to swim in! After a few hours of sunbathing and playing in the waves we drove across the street from the park to Brookgreen Gardens. The thousands of acres were once 4 plantations that a very wealthy family purchased around 1930 and decided to turn it into a wildlife refuge with sculpture exhibits and beautiful gardens. We only made it through ½ the park in a few hours but were very pleased with our visit. The wife was an excellent ...
... 3rd was boring as it rained hard all day and we hunkered down at Craig's house to hide from the storm.
we wake up on the 4th to discover a beautiful day in the 70's!
We took Craig's golf cart, everyone uses golf carts to get around here, out to breakfast and then used it to get to the beach.
Had a great day hanging out at the beach with Craig, Ashleigh, and some of their friends.
Sydney and Justin ...
