Downtown, on Ocean Boulevard and right on the beach
The hotel is right on the beach, along with numerous other hotels lining Ocean Boulevard. It's a busy street but there are sidewalks for the many tourists who are staying in the area.
Myrtle Beach is continually ranked as one of America's best family beach destinations, and offers visitors one-of-a-kind nightlife, more than 100 golf courses, and 60 miles of sandy shoreline. It's known to get a bit jam-packed, although the off-season brings smaller crowds -- but not those high southern temps ideal for sunbathing.
Located on the main drag of Ocean Boulevard in Downtown Myrtle Beach, Camelot by the Sea is a slight step above some of the chain hotels nearby -- there is free in-room Wi-Fi, all rooms have balconies, kitchens, and flat-screen TVs, and the fitness center is small but nice (though machines lack individual TVs). Kids will love the multiple pools, but thin walls mean some may have trouble sleeping. Other downsides: kitchens are dated, the comforters aren't high-quality, and there are signs of slight wear and tear (the bathrooms, for example, need new caulking).
