Need updating!!!

The location is great! However, the rooms need to be updated! It felt more like a two star resort :-( for I am use to a little more comforts. The value price would make you consider it but I probably wont stay again until its updated.

Great location, terrible staff

The sandcastle is in the best location in myrtle beach. It's right near the boardwalk in the middle of everything. We never had to get back in our car once we arrived at the hotel. The staff however needs some help. The cabana bartender the first night was extremely rude, refused to get ice to make frozen drinks, and closed two hours early. She also told us not to bother coming the next day because the bartender working that day was terrible (she was in fact amazing. Thanks Brenda lee!!). The night front desk attendant was also terrible. I had a splitting headache and went down to see if they had any aspirin. It took him 10 minutes to come to the front desk. I could hear him watching tv and when I called out he told me to wait. He also told me they did not carry aspirin which is fine but when I asked where I could purchase some he simply said "a store" and walked away. All in all great location, horrible hospitality.

This was an average motel room. For the second time in 1 year I am totally disappointed with your site again. The hotel rooms I viewed and received each time were way below what was viewed. I doubt I will be using your site anymore

Great location

Hotel is in a great location. A short (very short!) walk to the beach. Close to shops and restaurants. We even walked to Broadway at the Beach! Would definitely stay here again.

Exactly what we expected

This hotel was basic, but it was pretty clean and in a great location!! It was close to the boardwalk and broadway at the beach. I would definitely come back again.

You get what you pay for!

8/10/14-8/12/14 I paid for a suite with Murphy bed, but it was a first floor room. . I asked if I can change to a higher floor and they said yes third floor will be available at 4 pm. I was called two hours later and told there was a "maintenance issue" on the third floor and would have to take the original first floor room. I declined. I was put on the top floor, but in a smaller room. And I was not given the difference back. Hotel staff and management was disorganized. Gave false promises. And room was missing the freaking shower curtain!!!! Destruction of a hotel next door spread a mildew smell towards my balcony too. Simply put, pay a little more to stay somewhere else!!! You've been warned.

Sandcastle at the Pavillion needs a facelift

The only positive thing I can say about this hotel was the location on the beach! Needs updated, had to ask for the iron and ironing board and if they had blow dryers to use!? Overall it was less than a satisfactory experience to say the least!
