"Clean, friendly and fun!!!"
June 2018
This was our 3rd stay at Crown Reef. Housekeeping does an amazing job keeping it clean. Everyone, even the guy spraying the stairs was friendly. The water slides, pools and arcade keep the kids amused. There is always ample space in the pools. My 2 year old loves the kids water park and the older kids love the lazy river.

"Great place to stay."
April 2017
My family and I stayed at the hotel for my son's spring break, from check in to us extending our stay. We received grade A service. The hotel clerks were very customer service oriented. The room was very clean the hotel itself had such a nice fresh smell. The hotel restaurant, pool, and other amenities were top of the line. Sending a special thanks to Kerry, Marissa,and Shantae.. When returning to Mrytle Beach I will only stay at the Crown Reef Resort.

This place was a dump , rooms look nothing like what you see online. Dirty and old. We could not even get our cart to room housekeeping had trash all over walkway, and thet were to rude and lazy to move. While at the pool with my daughter and husband a man on balcony EXPOSED HIMSELF TO US!!! We went and got staff all they did was say we asked the guy and he said he didn't do it. I CALLED THE POLICE , who came and found out from others who also saw and had the guy removed. When my husband went to guest services to tell them what was going on they were not interested they were trying to get him to be quiet so others would hear. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER WE WR T TO STAY FOR 3 DAYS LEFT AFTER 1. While waiting on police to show up staff members told me they had people defecating on the stairs, it was filthy here!!! Someone threw up in the pool they just put a closed sign on it. IHAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS PLACE IS OPEN

We stayed at the Crown Reef every year! We love the staff, the rooms are clean and the children love the pool/slides/lazy river. We enjoyed the breakfast at the hotel each morning and the children loved the arcade. Buy your cards in advance to save money because you will want to play at the arcade.

"Worst resort...Wish I could give 0 stars"

We arrived on a Friday evening ,dropped our bags and went to have dinner and enjoy the strip. We came back to shower and get ready for bed and there were roaches in the bathroom. Spoke to the service desk and they offered to come and spray the room. I’m not exposing my family to any chemical sprayed to contain pests. I don’t even think that’s legal to spray with guests in the room.Finally after being hung up on three times and speaking to three different people, were moved to another room. But only after the room was inspected/clean enough to give to another family checking in.When the beds were pulled out, there was a huge whole in the wall behind the Murphy bed and the door knob feel off the bedroom door. Also the blankets for the extra beds were covered in balls of light brown hair. Now it’s about 1 in the morning,and everyone is exhausted. Had to call several times to get new blankets..they finally arrived around 3am..then I waited to the morning to have my room changed again. The manager didn’t contact me until around 5pm, trying to put me near the room I already was moved from, as if roaches don’t travel. My kids were already tired of moving and we only had one more night. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had with a resort, and that was my family’s first time in Myrtle. Our group had three rooms total and there was an issue with every room! Your company should really reconsider the hospitality’re not good at cleanliness or problem solving. It’s very sad

Was at the resort for around 16 hours due to being evacuated for Hurricane Dorian. Room had been remodeled and was clean. Suggest bringing your own pillow as those in the room are the size of a throw pillow.
