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.

How to Get There
My stay at Marina Inn was the second time I booked there. As was the first, it was exceptional. There are many choices for accommodations in Myrtle Beach but the Marina Inn stands out most due to their customer service. The Front Desk Manager, John was simply perfect. He truly cares that each patron is satisfied with their stay and will go above and beyond to accommodate your needs. And then there is Jane in the Reflections Bar. WOW what an exceptional employee. Not only is she a great bartender but she cares so much that you are happy with your stay that she will contact others to assist with any issues you may have. This young lady will keep you coming back time and time again. Thank you to everyone at Marina Inn and I look forward to my next trip to Myrtle Beach and my next stay with you! Robert
John at the front desk was absolutely amazing! He went above and beyond by helping me fix a discrepancy that occurred through a booking website. He even went so far as to personally call the websites’ customer service line to help me rectify the situation. He was professional, courteous and extremely kind. He is an asset to this wonderful establishment.
Booked Marina Inn at Grand Dunes through a third party website for the the wrong date. The third party would not allow us to change the reservation date because it was a prepay. John and Pilar at Marina Inn reservations check in were so kind and helpful to allow us to change the date at the hotel. They had to do a lot of work on their end to make it happen.
The hotel valet John was very friendly and always said hello to us. The lobby was very upscale and lobby bar was ok. The rooms were very large and nicely appointed. We had a nice view on the balcony of the golf course and water inlet. Although the resort was a little bit of drive to the Myrtle beach strip, it was a nice oasis away from all the action
I am convinced that no one actually works the resort. I only saw the one person working valet, two woman working check in/out, and one person at the restaurant. Not friendly or welcoming. No towels at the indoor and outdoor pool but I guess you need workers to stock those. Why is the OUTDOOR pools not heated in FEB! They are open but what's the point. Oh yeah, think they have an indoor hot tub nope just bubbled section of the pool. No one tells you anything about the resort or speaks to you the entire time. Want to get something from the gift shop, plan spending 25 mins at the check in to pay.They pay. a shuttle but that wouldn't run to the most logical places there like the Opry or Pirate show directly next door! But again, need someone to drive you and I never saw anyone. Usually at a resort you see people working! Save your money go somewhere else that will actually recognize they have guests. Complete disappointment!
We stayed in the deluxe one bedroom suit with jetted tub and fire place. The room was clean and beautiful with water view, Marine Inn is hands down my favorite place the stay in Myrtle Beach. I would definitely recommend this resort for couples, family, or business trip, everything you need is at this resort.
