    Us and three other couples booked this hotel off of the internet without knowing anything about it. What a home run!! This hotel was perfect for us. The rooms are spacious, the pool was perfect and Aaron at the front desk was fabulous. We arrived on a Saturday night after a 15 hour drive from CT and within an hour we all agreed that we wanted to stay another night rather than go on to Myrtle Beach. Aaron was able to book us an extra night and remain in our rooms so we didn't have to move to another room. He gave us suggestions, was pleasant and made our stay perfect. We swam every night and sat up in the widow's walk with cocktails at night just enjoying the view and the breeze. Good location, not too far from Marsh Walk and close to other towns for shopping and site seeing. Great choice for all of us. I hope to have an occasion to go down that way again because this hotel was certainly worth the trip! Thanks Aaron for everything! :)

    We were in Murrell's Inlet for a business conference and stayed at the Lodge upon a recommendation. We were very impressed with the entire facility and friendly staff. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a mini kitchen and full size refrigerator. A continental breakfast was served every morning. Even though we were not there to hunt or fish we noted they had storage facilities available for your gear and an area available to clean your fish and store in a walk in freezer. The Bliss Restaurant and Lounge located right next door served excellent local seafood. We shall be staying here once again when we return in November.r.”

    This is a hidden jewel in Murrell's Inlet. We have traveled throughout the U.S. and this is one of the most beautiful hotels we have stayed in. The mahogany engraved doors are just the beginning of a great suite. I would have loved this room as a studio apartment when I lived in Chicago. The staff was also amazing. Aaron and Randy were incredibly professional and courteous! Made us feel like family. I will definitely stay here again when I return. Plus it is so near so many bars and restaurants.

    This hotel was selected by the bride and groom for all of their family and friends to stay. A fantastic selection! Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, great service, nice complimentary breakfast. The location is perfectly set on the main drag in Murrells Inlet, you can walk and/or drive to many restaurants, bars, gift shops, etc. We really enjoyed our stay.

    My wife and I love this place! This is our place to stay now when we are in the area visiting family. Friendly staff and love the studio rooms with full kitchen, couch and dining table for 2. Luxurious showers and well done bathrooms. The rates are great for a boutique hotel experience. For the ladies, there is a Day Spa around the corner. Great place for fisherman and outdoor gear lockers for your gear. Free continental breakfast and the coffee is very good!
