    Good location. Parking is an issue, there is a small strip of land between the reception area and the hotel tower block. Every one is parking there and getting city parking tickets hotel unsympathetic when I said they should post a sign in the reception area to let guests know, all he said was we give you a map showing where you can park ( parking is so disjointed it's confusing you can park in front of hotel, you can park at hotel tower block, but the strip of land connecting these two areas is city owned so watch out you will get a ticket we stayed 9 days everyday a whole bunch of tickets were issue.

    Never again!!

    We stayed in the 3rd building 3 condos down from the office and had NO internet. When we asked the front desk what was up with the internet, she tried to reset it twice for us and on the third and fourth phone call, they ignored our calls. We walked to the front office, 3 buildings down, the front desk guy handed us a paper with their internet provider’s phone number and said call them. We spend over an hour on the phone with the provider, who was laughing saying she never had a guest call her from a hotel, the hotel should be handling it. The reason why the internet was so important is we have a 17, 20 and 22 year old back home in Canada that we communicate with. The place was outdated and the balsony had no chairs so it wasn’t designed for you to site outside and enjoy the fresh air. The pool it 5 buildings down, who’s going to run on a busy street with no sidewalk in a bathing suit to swim? No us! Never will we ever stay there again! Don’t go save your money!!!

    Very friendly staff from the beginning and a nicer breakfast than you’d imagine. But they didn’t clean our room one of the days and after us having to ask 3 separate times for someone to do so, we eventually had to go pick up towels because the “staff had gone home”. We spoke to front desk staff at 11am, 2pm And 4pm for someone to pop by our room to clean it (as they should every day) and they continued to say yes we will send someone now and the final answer being the staff had gone home come pick up your own towels.

    Love the staff.

    All the staff were super accommodating. Gave some tips on places to see. We stayed on the 7 the floor. Very nice view. If we do Myrtle this is where we will be staying.

    A Relaxing Place to stay with all the convenience

    Spending our family long weekend trip was just memorable eventhough it was raining. It is our first visit to Mrytle Beach South Carolina and looking for a place to stay is a challenge with so many options to chose from. Glad that we made a right choice in staying with Best Western Ocean Sand. Overlooking the atlantic ocean innour balcony is a magnificent and relaxing. We were greeted with friendly receptionist and got settle in our room in less than 5 mins. Got a complimentary 2 bottles and candies for my son as a welcome gift. The room were perfectly groom with a good size of 2 queen beds and a sofa bed with a small kitchenette equipped with fridege microwave and a small stove. Beddings, beds and pillows are comfy and nice. Decors are updated and so were the tv and alarm clock. Oh If you need a coffee or water or hot chocolate it is avalilable in the main building 24/7. Breakfast selections of hot and cold buffet are amazing. We were greeted by friendky staff and the area are kept clean all the time. You can make your own waffles, there are scramble eggs, hash browns, sausage, bacon or ham depending on the day. ample choices of cereals, breads, muffins and fruits with yougurt , juice drinks and coffee. The beach is just the back of the building with 2 outdoor pools and 1 indoor heated pool and whirlpool. Overall we are happy with our stay and will highly recommend the place. Comparable to other hotels, think of free meal for your family that you can enjoy & avail.

  • 6.0.Good

    Was not overly impressed with the hotel itself. Check-in was ok with the young lady at the front desk being very friendly. Parking is atrocious ! The parking if free, but there are only about 8 parking spaces under the building. The rest of the parking is down the street. Maybe due to COVID, but every piece of furniture in the room has a large build-up of dust behind it. The shower head in our room would not move nor adjust the spray pattern. The housekeeping started out a little slow and sloppy, but by the end of our stay was pretty good. Breakfast was real good. Hot and plentiful. Staff figured out a way to provide a hot breakfast during these troubled times, however, they only carried it halfway, leaving

    Great breakfast

    I have stayed here many times and will come back again. I was surprised at how good the hot breakfast was, I had never had it before. They had a person serving the eggs and bacon or sausage or biscuits & gravy. So much more sanitary than serve yourself style. It was simple & great.

    When arrived to 1st room noted a cockroach, got 2nd room a floor lower. Didn't see any roaches or bed bugs. People at front desk were nice, actually 2nd room was better than 1st because we weren't right near the elevator and vending machine. When speaking to a couple that was right near the elevator, they said they could hear people going up and down throughout the night. It seemed to be an older hotel the big pool was heated, lazy river water was green. Michelle at the Tiki Bar was very nice. Man at front desk was very nice also. Apparently though, we were in the newest building. I would say some staff need to be observed closer and watched that they perform their duties.

    Nice staff

    The location was great and all of the staff were very friendly. They offered a free hot breakfast and my 7 year old enjoyed one of the extremely small pools. That is all of the positives. The lazy river was cold and looked dirty. The beds were very uncomfortable with lumps and you could feel all of the coils. The tub was so gross that we waited to get home to shower. The wall molding was coming off and the sofa was dirty and had a hole in the side. One night was more than enough here.
