"Stayed here again!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We stayed in room 1109. Forest Dunes is our favorite hotel in Myrtle Beach because of its location. It is on the northern end and is quieter. We love the floor to ceiling windows. The view they give is amazing! We had to check in at Beach Colony, but that went very quick and the front desk workers were super friendly. The parking garage is tight, but doable. Our room was very clean and fresh smelling. It could use some updating, but it is still nice. Everything in the room worked. We did not have housecleaning service, but whenever I called the front desk (at Beach Colony) they brought me what I needed very quickly. I was impressed! The employees were extremely friendly also. We had carryout one evening from the restaurant downstairs. It was really good. We had a great stay, and would definitely stay here again.

Our family came down for a short trip during the pandemic but after things began opening back up. Because of social distance regulations, for the time being you have to check in down the street at Beach Colony, their sister property. Check in was simple and actually faster than normal, since there were more people working at Beach Colony. The downside is that there is no staff at Forest Dunes, just a security guard downstairs. We didn't have any issue with that though. You just call or go by the other hotel if you need anything. Housekeeping is not coming in. They haven't been by since we checked in Sunday and we check out tomorrow, Wednesday. We were told to place bags of laundry outside the door and they will leave fresh in the hall as well, but we were well stocked so again, not an issue. We are in room 904, a 1 bedroom ocean view and overall happy with the room. It does need some attention and a good deep cleaning for the carpet and living room furniture, as well as some minor fixes. These were brought to management attention and I'm sure they'll be addressed after we leave. See pics for reference. I will say that it smelled like bleach when we got here, so it's possible that staff have had to spend extra time actually sanitizing and have missed a few things. The pull out sofa bed had a dirty sheet left on it with makeup residue. Shower has a cracked wall and rusted curtain rod. The shower curtain liner is dirty. Bathroom floor had visible dirt/hair/used tissue in the corners. A pillowcase had visible soil/hair on it. Dining room table is dirty on the legs and base. Dresser is chipping and cracked on top. The comforter is ripped in one spot and has been tied together. The kitchen stove has a broken drawer on the bottom that just hangs. Like I said, lots of little, simple fixes. Beds are really not super comfy in this unit. It has the potential to be a great unit with just a little work!

You would think after being closed down due to COVID they would have spent some time cleaning the rooms but that did not happen. 704 was subpar as far as cleanliness. There were no sheets for the pull out and when i called at 10pm because we were settling for bed I was told that i needed to drive to the sister location for linen because there was no one to deliver it to me...At 10 oclock at night i'm to get in my car and drive to another location for linen?!?! I called and got a very rude person by the name of Courtney who was unhelpful. I called the next morning and spoke to manager who was just as unhelpful. Stated the linens would be delivered by housekeeping and well that didn't happen either. Will not be going back EVER!

"Beautiful unit "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 02, 2020
My stay was wonderful. I stayed in 309, which is a corner unit, with floor to ceiling windows. You see direct ocean front / right on the beach and the other windows show you all the way to South Myrtle. Forest Dunes is right on the beach at 5511 North Ocean Blvd. we get to be close to quiet North Myrtle and still close to the main drag. It is located right before restaurant row. I was there on business and didn’t need to make use of the pool deck, however, it was closed. I heard several different reasons for the pool deck being closed – I just hope they get it open before my vacation in June. Water is in the pools just not letting people enjoy the beautifully redone pool deck.

We stay here at least twice a year. It's clean, nice rooms, and in a great location. Don't forget to eat at the onsite restaurant. Great food and drinks. The front desk staff is the best. They make sure your family.
