"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.

"Not so much"

Stayed there for a few nights. Checked in on 9/18/2020 checked out today 9/20/2020. I’m a stickler for cleanliness. Especially in these times. The bathroom in this place was disgusting. We had to call them up to clean the tub before we could use. They did come. It wasn’t cleaned very well. I actually think the jets in the whirlpool were the problem. We decided in the last night to use that and we filled and nothing but gross junk floating in the water. Tried twice and just gave up. It literally ruined my time there. Couldn’t shower because the tub was filthy the first night. Then on the the last night couldn’t use the whirlpool. So no matter what good I have to say I just can’t say it. I have not decided wether or not I want to post the pictures that show the filthy mirrors and the moldy and mildewed corners of the tub area. I probably will. What a shame. Hot tubs in the water park are. It hot if you could get the little kids out of it to even get in it. Went down there to get away from Michigan for a few days. Ugh.

"Labor Day Weekend"

We were there for Labor Day Weekend. Our room was clean, but is in need of a facelift. The room safe was broken,had to call the front desk twice to request clean towels, and was not aware there was a $10/day parking fee (I missed that while booking online), but the pool area is absolutely fantastic. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again.

"Refreshing, renewing much-needed vacation"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 13, 2020 NEW
The variety of pools and hot tubs, 2 water slides, the beach, and the best lazy river in Myrtle Beach made for a terrific vacation! Resort staff made some efforts to wear masks (some correctly) and social distance and did this exceptionally well at the breakfast buffet, where all staff remained properly masked and served food from behind plexiglass barriers. Rooms were clean and employees wiped down frequently touched surfaces in public areas. We will be back but will try not to stay on the lobby level again since we could barely hear the ocean over the water pump noise from just below us.

"Great spot for family vacation"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 10, 2020 NEW
Not the cleanest place and it's a bit outdated, but it's a wonderful spot for a family get a way. It has it's own beach access, so you can go from the beach to the water park,( 2 adult size water slides and a water slide play area for kids) and/ or the many pools at the facility. There is a lazy river you can tube around. Several hot tubs, as well as a couple 1 foot baby wading pools. It's has a couple different restaurants on the property or you can walk next door to Damon's or the other direction to a pizza joint and an ice cream shop. It's within walking distance of one of the piers. You can walk on the pier for a $3 fee or fish all day for a $12 fee. Signs around the facility are very confusing it will point you one direction and it will be completely opposite; or it will say one thing in the pamphlet the check in gives you and you'll have to figure out where in the world it really is.
