Get the most out of Myrtle Beach at the local resort with the most to do (or close). The newly renovated Springmaid Beach Resort, slated to be a DoubleTree by Hilton by June 2016, resides on 27 acres, with a quarter mile of beach and 1,068-foot pier. Everything here is super-sized, and that goes for the fun, too. Between the two lazy rivers, six pools and 18 holes of mini golf, you’ll barely think to set foot beyond the action-packed property’s bounds.
But something even bigger awaits outside: the Grand Strand, South Carolina’s surrounding 60-mile shoreline. It’s largely framed by a boardwalk and dotted with theme parks, restaurants and bars, promising beachy amusement on a whole new scale. Give surfing a try, hop aboard a swashbuckling pirate cruise, or watch the racecars at the Myrtle Beach Speedway. The sky’s the limit, so use Springmaid as your springboard, and see how far you can take your trip.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of $17.64 per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes parking; Wi-Fi; access to the indoor and outdoor pools, lazy rivers and inner tube access; grounds maintenance; access to the Springmaid Pier; on-site security; local, long-distance and 800 phone calls; fitness and business center access; concierge services; complimentary miniature golf; in-room bottled water; discounted fishing passes and rod rentals; and a 20% discount on beach rentals from the gift shop.
The accommodations at Springmaid number nearly 500, each an ocean-view abode in fresh colors and with tasteful furnishings and artwork. Each comes with its own private balcony, as well as a generous, full-size refrigerator and 32-in. flat-screen HDTV.
Springmaid is home to two eateries, convenient complements to the buzzing restaurant-and-bar scene beyond the property’s borders. Marlin’s Buffet is best known for its omelets, and BARnacles on Springmaid Pier, its fresh seafood; there’s also a seasonal pool bar, with fruity drinks to sip while you sunbathe.
The Grand Strand is a sprawling stretch of beach in South Carolina’s southeast, rich in boardwalk bars and boating and water-sporting operators. Hit up the Myrtle Beach Speedway for a race or the Pirates Voyage Dinner & Show to chow down on barbecue while watching pirates duke it out to the hits of Dolly Parton. (Yes, it’s a thing.) But don’t forget you’ve also got a sprawling resort to call your own, including 18 holes of mini golf, a quarter mile of beach and a fishing pier.
How to Get There
This is not a typical Hilton. Room had a strange smell and there was a “party” outside and despite several guests complaining, the music was so loud that with our doors shut, we could hear every single word on the music and the “DJ”. I have no objection to parties or music, but this was ridiculously loud. Trust me when I tell you, THIS PLACE IS NOT TO HILTON STANDARDS IN ANY WAY!!! Pay a little bit more and get a real Hilton. Furious and will never return!
Organization not central, dinner, hospitality room separate from conference area. Long walk for disabled person. Would have been helpful to have golf cart provide service to hospitality room and main pool.
After you arrive, you must pay to park.
There is NO FREE PARKING. YOU MUST PAY A $25 RESORT FEE PER DAY & $10 EXTRA FOR ANOTHER CAR.PER DAY !!!!!
This is supposed to include parking and bike rental. They only have a few free bikes for 453 rooms. Then you have to rent their other bikes $9 an hour.
Breakfast is $19 a person and kids over 8 pays the same thing. The upgrade has the nasty omlets (the older woman making will yall and talk to you like a dog )The wait staff act as if you are sooo much trouble. You have to find a waitress.A beer is $6.
This is NOT UP TO HILTON STANDARDS!!!
Housekeeping is so slow and rude. Your room may (if your lucky) get cleaned by 5pm, just when your trying to get ready for dinner. THEY BATHROOMS ARE SO SMALL AND THE SINK IS IN THE ROOM..NOT BATHROOM.I hope they decide to clean their act up.
Hotel was a perfect location away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip. Oceanfront was so relaxing and the staff creates a friendly environment that makes for just the right amount of social interaction and rest .
Do not take special offers from DoubleTree Myrtle beach!!
They take your money and then on arrival the nightmare begins. They give you the worst rooms. On the palmetto building. Very rude people in the front desk. Take it or leave it. The room offered was not satisfactory. Asked for a supervisor. Got Chanté. No last name. No employee number. She refused to provide. A petulant lady who accused me of insulted her when I asked for a manager. "Lady I never used those kind of words".
After driving so many hours wishing to rest and enjoy my mini vacation regretted the choice of DoubleTree Myrtle beach. Am in a room that connects with the the room next door. The door in the middle allows to hear the noise from my neighbors. Also the noise from airplanes is loud and constant. I wonder if I can sustain the next three days..
