The Wedding/Reception staff were the best as our reception was all we asked for and more. They were Super from the very beginning, throughout all phone and email interactions and up until the event was ready; during our final meeting prior to our reception the day before. Our beach wedding was Amazing and the perfect reception followed!!! Thank you all!!!

Went for a weekend getaway just after labor day.
Sat on the balcony when we were not on the beach.
Loved that we were able to watch 3 weddings that weekend.

We made a last minute trip to the beach, made reservations while we were on the road. The staff is nice and the hotel is clean, but in need of renovations/updates. Not awful, just older. It is directly on Surfside Beach, so we still had great fun.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Dirty facility and rooms
This was the worst Holiday Inn product I have ever experienced. I have been staying in Holiday Inns all over the country for over 25 years and have never seen anything like this. The elevators smelled of animal waste. My room had a huge wet spot and obviously a dog had urinated there and it had not been cleaned up. They moved my room and the "new" room had a broken sliding glass door handle and towel rack. One of the patio chairs was missing and was not replaced even after I called. The walkway to the beach had a broken step and was never cleaned during my stay. My reservations were messed up on arrival. The front desk tried to move me out of my second room because they had booked the room during my last reserved night. I protested and the Mgr relented. I was never recognized as a Platinum Plus member. I used 35000 points for an additional night....and I want my points back!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ESW71 Wonderful staff
This is an older hotel, but the service from each and every staff member was consistently pleasant, friendly and helpful. The beds, and especially the pillows were very comfortable, and since we were on the ocean side the only noise we might have heard was the ocean itself. We found it quite lovely and relaxing. We will come again.

If you are looking for a hotel that is right on the beach surf, then this is it. The rooms were below quality from what I expect from Holiday Inn. There were several issues with mechanical

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seford24 Great vacation!
Great view, not crowded on the beach, and plenty of room at the pool. Music for the weekend holiday which was great!
Did not like that smoking was allowed at the front entrance or the pool area. A smoking location should have been provided away from the building. I don't want to walk through a bunch of people smoking and smell like smoke before I get to my non smoking room. Other than this, we had a great stay.

We have stayed in this hotel every time we travel down to the area. the rooms are comfortable, and clean. the views are fantastic (Ocean side), and the employees are super friendly. There is nothing that do not like about staying here. Do yourself a favor. try it once. you will not ever look anywhere else in the area to stay.

Outstanding view with a great staff, other than this ridiculous requirement of at least a 50 word review the stay was fine. This requirement will like discourage me from completing these types surveys in the future.
the Hotel was great though.

Very friendly service, excellent food, a little overprice with the meals. The temperature of the room was difficult to adjust and keep comfortable, either too cold or too warm.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bl1970 Struggling staff
This hotel was in a great location. Just south of Myrtle Beach, but quiet with a nice strand of beach to play on. The staff seemed to work very hard to tried to make guests happy, but I feel that their hands were tied by management. The lobby looked nice, but our room was old and worn. Some of the towels had stains others had worn spots that were so thin you could almost see through them. We had to take the top sheet off one night for a dark stain on it that looked like it had been washed a few times over, but did not come out. Our toilette broke, and it took 3 calls with 3 visits before we gave up and just stuffed towels around it to stop the leak since we were leaving the next day. ONe day the cleaning service didn't even bother to clean our room, and when we called to the front desk they didn't even know if any of the cleaning crew were around still. The one tey found told us she was supposed to be off and was trying to go home. She also told me that they didn't clean our room because we had a "Don't Not Disturb Sign" on it. That was a lie because I had to ask for one, and told the cleaning crew we were leaving and the room was there. I am a Platinum Member with IHG and this is by far the worse of any hotel I can remember staying in. I would not stay here again, nor would I suggest anyone else.

We had a great experience, The hotel had plenty to offer, the staff was great, Phillip was outstanding taking care of our needs and Debbie in the lounge did a great job. Shelly did an outstanding job, I am an early riser and she had my coffee for me before the restaurant opened in the morning. Overall it was a great stay and I would recommend this property to anyone who travels to Myrtle Beach.

I enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Oceanfront @ Surfside Beach very much. The hotel staff were excellent from the cleaning crew to the front desk. Everyone I came in contact with were very helpful and courtesy especially the restaurant staff who went above and beyond what I expected. If not for the small size room and a leaking ceiling everything was perfect. The staff were very helpful with trying to remedy the problem with the leaking ceiling and I was satisfied with their efforts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Canadian Tourist Surfside
This HI property appears to be a converted property which do not necessarily have the level of quality and comfort expected of the HI brand. The room was small and the washroom was tiny. The price is high since it is on the beach, however, the value is not there since the layout of the rooms were cramped and the furniture, décor was ancient. The people and service was excellent though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackets5 Great location, clean and safe with a great price.
The rooms are clean and the staff is responsive. The price for ocean front is good for being slightly south of the Myrtle Beach area. Less crowded beaches that are manicured and clean with life guard. Can't hardly go wrong with this hotel.

inconsiderate jerks wasting money and polluting the air at midnight should stop shooting their noise makers at least by 11:00pm so hotel residents who need to sleep can do so peacefully.

When we stay at the Holiday Inn Surfside, it's like visiting family we haven't seen in a while. The front desk is always ready to greet you with a big hello. I have never seen an instance when they were not ready to help in any way. The housekeeping and Maintainance staff are just as pleasent and willing to assist us in any way they can. I can't wait untile our next visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CCU Mom Great view, Location & Staff
This was our fifth stay at Surfside's Holiday Inn over the last year and a half. I always love the staff (Phillip and Cody especially# the location and overall experience. It was really crowded this week #August 11-17, 2014) but my complaints had nothing to do with a crowded hotel.
My complaints on this trip were: we tried to enjoy the ice cream Tiki Bar and it was closed on a beautiful sunny day at 2 p.m. We were lucky the staff working the bar went and got us what we wanted. I heard others complain it was closed early on other days during our stay.
Very surprised the bar had NO beers on drafts. The staff said they had no drafts in stock. We ordered a few drinks but the next time we wanted to do that during our stay, we walked down the beach to another beach bar and had lunch and beverages down there. We usually have always used the Holiday Inn for food and drinks and never had that problem.
Our Maid service is always so good there and staff are so friendly and helpful.
I sometimes wonder when I am staying there if the people at the pool are Holiday Inn Guests or from local rental homes. There is no way to keep people from just coming in and no one checks for this. I don't even remember any signs posted Pool use is for Holiday Inn guests ONLY. I see people leave out the pool's side gate and go to parking lot and cars and not to hotel door to go to rooms many times.
Love the ocean view and waking up to the sunrise. We have been on city view side and it is great too. I think it is quieter on that side. People on beach do fireworks until late so if that is an issue you may want city view during your stay.
We always stay here and will continue to but would love these issues to be addressed. Our son goes to CCU so we go a few times a year.

For the third time in 15 months, I stayed at this hotel. Its location, right on the beach, is the primary reason I use this hotel as a "vacation extender." The staff is very pleasant, as is the whole experience. I enjoyed this recent stay even more since the hotel is in the process of being updated. The lobby and the hallways have been painted, and the guest rooms and their balconies seemed to be fresher, too. I'll be back again.

We stayed for 3 days/4 nights in early August 2014. Overall great experience. Loved our ocean front view/balcony, and the fact that the ocean/beach and pool area were right outside the doors. Only caution that I would give is that this is a "pet friendly" hotel. Heard a little dog yapping a few times. Thankfully wasn't at night/overnight, but did hear another guest complain that one woke him barking at 3am. Breakfasts in the hotel restaurant were excellent, but dinner first night less so...I would absolutely recommend it for breakfast, but go out to dinner somewhere else. Nice bar/lounge that had good lunch foods during day, and the ice cream bar, both right off pool area. Shame that we had excellent weather, but the outside Tiki Bar was not open any of the days we were there.
