    • Older travelers

      Never again would I ever stay there,,, horrible

    • Family with children

      The pools and the lazy river. Also the oceanfront view was gorgeous.

      Where do I begin, I had a non-smoking room, but the room smelled like someone just lit a cigarette up, the overall room was very outdated, when you take a shower the tub fills up with water with the drain opened up( how gross),the elevators were slow and smelled like urine and the price that is quoted on the site does not match what it is when you check in.

    • Older travelers

      Crown Reef is budget- friendly

      Crown Reef is a very old hotel that needs to be remodeled. Toilet wouldnt flush Carpet was filthy Refrigerator had rust and dents all over Appliances were old and out dated Outside of hotel carpet was smelly, wet, and filthy

    • Family with children

      I hated it! It was filthy, dirty, and everthing was broke.

      I sent this on July 14th to above email Customer Service. I am requesting a full refund. I will also send a credit card dispute. My stay was July 13th 2012, I had left a letter on the desk when I checked out addressed to your Facilities Director, Housekeeping Director and the President of Crown Reef Resort regarding issues of my horrible stay. I booked a room with your resort because your website looked so inviting and I felt I was going to be staying in the best resort along the beautiful Myrtle Beach. The first thing that was a problem was the early check in that was impossible. The clerk was unfriendly and I had asked him how his day was going and he told me it was horrible. That was not good customer service. They gave me and my granddaughter a parking pass and bracelets to get into the pool area while we waited for our room to be ready at 3 pm. As we walked into the second floor customer service the entrance was disgusting looking with wet spilt mess all over it. I came through this entrance several time both the 13th and the 14th of July. Not once was this sprayed off. Very poor nonprofessional. The glass doors were filthy, the door handles were filthy. And this was just walking into customer service on the second floor. The guest services told me I could use the restroom to change into our swim suits. The bathroom was filthy and toilet did not flush and it was disgusting. The paper towel holder was broken. The carpets were all filthy and spotted and just plain gross. The whole resort smelled of spilt old beer. It seemed every door we went through was dirty and not ever cleaned. The floors and carpets were so disgusting. We finally got through the check in mess at 3 pm and went to our room. Immediately the room smelled like bo so bad. I tried spraying with air spray and candle and nothing helped this horrible smell. The tv was broke and the lock on the back door just fell off.

      As a recent graduate from USC's hospitality program, I am extremely disappointed with this hotel. From the outside, you would only think it was top-notch but quite the contrary. Upon checking in, the front desk attendant had no idea where anything was, did not inform me of check out, was extremely rude and rushed me right our the door. When entering my room, everything was rusted, there was globs of hair in the shower, the toilet seat was down and had not be flushed from the previous attendant (or housekeeper). The bartender downstairs didn't know how to work the credit card system and again was not helpful in answering my questions. I called the front desk inquiring about a taxi on Wednesday (July 4th) and they said they would have the taxi at the hotel for me at 6pm. I waiting with the security yards for over 45minutes, the taxi had never been called. As a resort and paying almost $500 for 2 nights, I couldn't be more disappointed.

      Everything. I do not recommend this "resort" to anyone, ever.

    • Older travelers

      We came Crown Reef Resort to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and everything was perfect, even received a bottle of champaign! Parasailing, jet skiing, banana boat riding, right next door to the hotel, very convenient! The Cloud 9 Lounge was absolutely wonderful, and we just loved Joanne to death! We will be back! Thank you so much for making a great weekend!

      Not really the hotel's fault, but all the construction going on in the middle of June was just not good.

    • Older travelers

      The location was good.

      I did not like my hotel.. When I booked I was sure that I booked a non smoking room. When I got to the room only thing I could smell was smoke . I had to call someone up and they had to come spray the room.. Also, I had to leave my balcony door open all night just to get the unpleasant smell out of our room.. We called down stairs to ask if we could change to another room.. But they said we would have to pay more, and no refund.. The beds were not comfortable at all, they were lumpy. The bathroom had a half of role of toilet paper that was already opened and half used.. I will never stay at the hotel again.. What a nightmare..:(

    • Older travelers

      Only the front view, but nothing else. It was not a great place to stay . I will never stay there again!!!!!

      There needs to be some serious upgrading done to the motel. Also there was no premium channels on tv. Water takes to long to get hot. Sand spares were on the floor, could have done some damage to bare feet. The patio had this great big gazebo in front of our patio which took away from the beach front view. Bath tub was not clean, hair was in the tub, soap scum still on walls of shower. The parking spaces or just to close together.

    • Single

      The only thing good I can say is that it was right on the beach. It was not particularly clean and I certainly wouldn't stay there more than 1 night. The room had an odd smell and the carpet felt absolutely filthy when walking in your bare feet. I would not recommend it to any of my friends.

    • Family with children

      Absolutely nothing...

      Our room was very dirty and smelled bad. We booked the room for 5 nights and only stayed 1. We wouldn't have stayed at all but after being on the road 14 hours we were exhausted. This hotel advertises many pool and hot tub areas. There were 3 hit tubs empty and not operating. There were 2 pools empty and not operating. Outdoor facilities were just as nasty as the indoor. Upon checking out, the staff was rude and did not apologize for our unsatisfactory experience. We will definitely not be staying here again or recommending the hotel to anyone. We moved to Dayton House the 2nd day and loved it! Very clean and staff were extremely helpful and courteous.

    • Older travelers

      The rating that the hotel had been given was so wrong. This is a very nice place to stay. The rating when we registered was a 2 this should have been a 4 in my opinion.

      Great location.

    • Family with children

      The hotel is very very old. The facilities are old,unsound and damaged.I had booked a twim room it cost $180 a night,but this hotel only value to spend $70 or less
