Set on 2,200 acres between the Atlantic Ocean and the Grande Dunes Marina, this Four Diamond resort is ideal for golf enthusiasts and those seeking a quiet getaway in Myrtle Beach. Each of the 200 guestrooms and suites has a terrace, a bathroom with separate shower, and a fireplace (in most), with such additional amenities as soft bathrobes and optional in-room spa treatments. Several dining options are on offer, including the Waterscapes restaurant, a farm-to-table spot with fresh produce grown in South Carolina. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Executive Chef Julien Lancrerot whips up entrees such as shrimp and grits and roasted chicken with gnocchi, as well as flaked black bass with champagne sauce and tarragon chips. When you’re looking to relax, park it on the beach (transportation provided), in the sauna or hot tubs, or hang poolside; there’s also a seasonal cocktail bar that shakes up cocktails from 11 a.m to 5 p.m.
In the Area
Immediately surrounding the property is Grande Dunes, a par-72 golf course with dramatic waterfront scenery, as well as the Anchor Café, a casual locals restaurant in the Grande Dunes Marina, a few steps from the Marina Inn resort. Myrtle Beach’s famous Carolina Opry is a five-minute drive away; it features high-energy performances that combine music, comedy and dance. Nearby, Broadway on the Beach is a hot spot for shopping, nightlife and plenty of other attractions, ranging from wax museums and mirror mazes to water parks and helicopter rides. Downtown Myrtle Beach features the iconic boardwalk, as well as Family Kingdom Amusement Park and miles of beach.
How to Get There
We have been to the Marina Inn several times over the past 8 years. This is a convenient location for restaurants, shows, and shopping, yet it is in a very quiet location.
The rooms are very comfortable and the staff always is friendly and professional. Also, we see a lot of the same people working there year after year. This says a lot about the hotel. From the valet crew, to the check in people, to the dining spots, all familiar faces.
We always enjoy seeing Jane in the Reflections Lounge. She always treats us nicely. On our last night, instead of going out as we planned, we were so comfortable at the bar, we ordered burgers and drinks and then called it a night. Thanks, Jane!!! See you on our next visit.
Amazing place! Paradise in the middle of the beach. Breakfast omelet cooked to perfection! Bonus is Ruth Chris is on the grounds and outlets are just a few miles away. Wished we could have stayed longer. Cant wait to go back!!!
Our 2nd visit to the Marina Inn, both have been very enjoyable. Staff was very helpful, wake up calls are in person; requests were responded to very quickly.
Although somewhat expensive, not terribly so.
We did meet several individuals during the trip who we truly enjoyed meeting and talking to. The two most endearing, was Sam (I Am) at the Marina. Helped us with our luggage, greeted each and everytime we left or returned when he was at work. A wonderful person, friendly, personable, courteous and professional. We hope very much to see him again soon.
Brandy, at the Carolina Roadhouse, on Kings' Hwy. was also truly a wonderful individual, whom we hope to see again. We ate dinner at the CRH, 3 nights. All with Brady, whom we requested. The restaurant was busy each and every time we were there, including last Monday evening.
Brady was extremely knowledge, efficient and professional , while at the same time, so personable.
Hopefully, both Sam at the Marina Inn and Brandy at the Carolina Road House will remember us, at least for a little while and think of us, as we think of them. So courteous, helpful, truly kind and thoughtful. Plus, we all seemed to enjoy each other each time we met. Oh yes, hope that Brandy's attendance at the Elton John Concert in Charlotte, NC was a Blast.
Thank you. Hi Brandy ad Sam, hope you see this sometime. F & R
