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
Issues are with the room itself. Broken table almost dropped my laptop. Elevator out of order first few days. No tissue in the dispenser. All concerns were promptly addressed by friendly staff. Issues were corrected immediately.
The doubletree in Myrtle Beach was perfect. A little getaway room overlooked the beach, unfortunately the weather wasn’t cooperating. We enjoyed cocktails in the lounge and breakfast buffet...the staff was great
We were put up at this hotel by our insurance company when we had a plumbing problem. We were very happy with our suite. It had everything we needed and we were happy they allowed our cat to be with us. Altogether a happy experience at a hard time for us
Decent hotel room didn’t smell like mildew which was a plus. Weather wasn’t great which isn’t hotel fault drink prices high. Elevators slow so ask for lower level room. Fitness equipment mismatched or out of order.
Pillows are uncomfortable, sofa is very uncomfortable to sit on. Room was average, wind blew through cracks in door. Elevator did not work 3 days out of 5 days. Restaurant prices were high like most hotels. Hilton Honors member but did not get to stay in a Hilton Honors room. Best thing is location is on the beach and you can look at the ocean from your room.
