"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.

"poorly managed property"

I just spent my Easter 2019 at the Crown Reef Resort, thoroughly disappointed, the property is in desperate need of updates/renovations. The check in was horrific! Bad coffee to top it off. The baby crying next door did not help either! NOT a pleasant stay for my Easter Sunday. However, the ocean view was great!

"Good place to stay but unrecommendable check in experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed April 23, 2019 NEW
This was a good place for us to stay in Myrtle Beach. Nice quiet area. A little farther from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk but not far enough to not be able to enjoy it. It had a convenient location to allow us to enjoy the beach with not much crowd and yet it gave an option especially for the kids to play in their water park which was nice. There were 2 things which really just thew us off during our stay. First... the check in experience. After being on the road driving for 8 hours (with kids), it took us 50 minutes waiting in line to reach the check in desk, 20 minutes to be checked in, 3 hours of waiting for an available room, and another 30 minutes of waiting in line just to be able to get the keys to our assigned room. This was considering that there were 4 opened check-in stations in the front desk area. Second... their Easter Egg Hunt activity for the kids. They have arranged an Easter Egg Hunt for kids supposedly from 12 noon to 1Pm.. Well, I should have seen it coming when there were no registrations or sign ups for the activities. They were not ready or did not anticipate the number of kids who are checked in the hotel who were possible participants. And so.... 10 minutes before the event, kids were already there. As soon as the games began, eggs were all gone in a matter of 5 minutes and that's it! no more back up or anything else prepared for those who would be coming during the duration of the event. we arrived 10 minutes after 12 and all they could say was all the eggs are gone and that's it. Activities like these seem to need to have a little bit more planning especially if it involved kids. Overall, I would still recommend this place for its convenience of location and the on-site water park especially for families.

Could see the slides and the ocean from our balcony - had the best of both worlds! Even when the weather turned nasty our daughter could still enjoy the water and the slides! Food was excellent too! We really loved the game room! Could use a gift shop onsite.

"Awesome time with the kids!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 22, 2019 NEW
We had a WONDERFUL time at this resort. Took the kids during spring break and they had a blast! The room was very nice, the pools and lazy river were heated, and the water slides were fun! I loved that it had a kitchen with full accommodations for 4 people and saved a lot of money but having the ability to store food and beverages in fridge. For what we paid and the amount of people we had (2 adults, 3 kids) it was definitely worth every penny spent and a week to remember. Thank you for making our first experience in Myrtle Beach so memorable.

"Great Kid Vacation"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed April 22, 2019 NEW
I was hesitant about this place because of the negative reviews but I was THRILLED when we arrived. I expect Myrtle Beach properties to be older and not brand new so I set my expectations accordingly. Crown Reef is old but they are making some nice updates. Some parts are gross but for the most part they are doing a good job updating. Our room was perfect - recently updated with a clean big tub/shower, the full size kitchen appliances helped keep me on track with my son's dietary restrictions and the room itself was tastefully done with new flooring and a very comfortable bed. We really enjoyed our time in the room. All the cookware etc was new and clean. Located right on the beach - the grounds are big - the pools are awesome - everything is heated (we visited in April) and the water slides are LEGIT. The arcade on site has a lot of new games and was very clean. My only negatives: Check-In is in the building across the street so drive over there first. So many people smoking on the property was gross.
