"CROWN REEF IS HORRIBLE" Crown Reef Resort Tip by susanham05

Crown Reef Resort, Myrtle Beach: 1,306 reviews and 5 photos

We were on vacation in Myrtle Beach from July 10-17th. We were supposed to stay at the Crown Reef. I dont know where the people who said it was great stayed but apparently it wasn't the same place!! We arrived and thats when the trouble began. We were told when we made reservations over 2 months ago that 2 parking permits were NOT a problem. Turns out that when we arrived it was. We were told to park next door in Myrtle
Beach parking and pay $6 a day, and if we moved we may loose the spot by a Manager. We were already paying over $1,000 for the room and now we were going to be paying almost $50 to park. After begging and pleading we were given a ticket to park, after 6pm, in the lot for the conference center. That was ok as long as we weren't paying. Then we get to our room. Where do I begin? The main door wouldn't lock, wait let me rephrase it would lock but with one swift jerk it was open. The handle to the sliding door to the balcony was so broken it would spin around in a circle. THe bathroom fixtures, ie the light covers were falling down and best of all the toilet barely flushed. Outside of our door we also had standing water at least an inch deep and 4 ft wide (it covered the whole walkway) We called to let them know about the problems and to let them know we wanted our money back. We ended up having to stay one night so we wouldn't loose our deposit. We did and during the night there were 3 fire alarms(we were on the 9th floor, so thats 3 trips up and down between midnight and 6am). We also learned on our final trip that 4 rooms had been broken into and laptops, purses, money etc were stolen. The pools were dirty and one of them was closed down. We left and found a great place up the road at BLUEWATER. It was a private owned suite. The hotel has a band playing during the day with a poolside bar. IT WAS WONDERFUL AT BLUEWATER!!!!!
