"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.

"Awesome waterpark!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 23, 2020 NEW
The resort is great for family and children! The best part is the indoor water park that kids and adults are able to enjoy!!!! The arcade has so many games for everyone to enjoy! The restaurant in the hotel also serves great food—wings, wraps, and fried corn! The hotel room is pretty dated, but it has a full size kitchen and met all of our needs! The staff is friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back again! Charity and Lyle! Richmond, VA

We stayed here twice last year during the winter months and decided to come back this year and was not disappointed. The pool had some upgrades to the enclosure which was much better then last year but Tina and Rasheen in the pool area are amazing. We stay in the penthouse which is nice but could use some upgrades...we will be back

"Family Favorite! 5 star fun, not a plush 5 star resort."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 14, 2020 NEW
Our family of 4 stayed for 4 nights in July. We had a king suite. The rooms are not spacious but fully functional with TVs in the bedroom and sitting room that had a murphy bed and a pull out couch. The balcony has chairs and a rail we used to dry our towels. This is a 5 star review but do not get confused, this is not a plush 5 star resport!!! To me it is on the level of a Red Roof Inn or HoJo. It is clean and comfortable and VERY family friendly. In fact there are TONS of kids running around having a blast!! This is exactly what we were hoping for. Do not come here if you are looking for a quiet get away or desire soft towels. As a family we loved it. The kids are bonkers about waterparks and there is one downstairs, with towel service (if your could find a towel, they ran low/out). We adults loved that there were kids for ours to play with and it is across a sand dune from the beach. The key to their success for our family was a low key setting with a waterpark, beach, in room laundry, functional kitchen with basic pots, pans, and a full size fridge. We cooked in the room for most meals. Fun, loud, good times, I'd go back, and the kids really want to go back!

We heard several great reviews about this place, so decided to spend the extra money and let the kids enjoy the indoor water park. I will say before getting to the negatives that the water park was great! The lines were quick, the young gentleman up at the top running the lights/telling people to go was super friendly and very social to the adults as well as the kids! Since we live 45 mins away from the beach, we take full advantage in the winter months to dodge the summer crowd. So of course, with that being said, we take full advantage of the hot tubs as well (Our MAIN reason we go!). Of ALL the hot tubs, like two worked! And of course, those two were crowded. The others were less than what my bath/shower water would be or just plain cold. For $125 a night in the winter, all the amenities should be working properly! If not, you need to advise your customers before they book with you! Or at least refund them their money so they can go else where to have those amenities. If they would get their stuff up and running which they should, with the nightly prices, we would def. go back! But until then, we will just stay at the Dayton House or something.
