Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Right on the beach
  • Kid-friendly -- a large water park, a game room, and children's summer activities
  • Indoor lazy river pool, children's pool with pirate ship, two outdoor pools, a Jacuzzi, and a pool bar
  • Rooms have microwaves, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers; suites have larger kitchenettes
  • Ocean views from many rooms
  • Casual on-site dining at Loco Gecko
  • Flat-screen TVs
  • Free Wi-Fi and free parking

Cons

  • Packed pool area on nice days
  • Low-quality comforters
  • Visible wear and tear
  • Some of the children's summer activities require a fee

Bottom Line

Captain's Quarters Resort is like many hotels along Ocean Boulevard -- rooms are a bit worn, and the highlights are the beachfront location and the numerous pools (particularly the outdoor children's pool, complete with a pirate ship). The Ikea-esque light wood, bright aqua accent walls, and flat-screen TVs in the rooms add a little modern flair, but the comforters are low-quality, and in the suites, the kitchenettes are dated. The Downtown Myrtle Beach location is convenient, but don't expect tranquility -- the pool area gets packed with kids and partiers.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Downtown, 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.

  • 5-minute drive to [Myrtle Beach International Airport]
  • Right on the beach
  • 7-minute walk to Family Kingdom Amusement Park
  • 15-minute walk or 1-minute drive to Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade
  • 2-minute drive to Pavillion Amusement Park
  • 2-minute drive to Ripley's Believe it or Not museum
  • 6-minute drive to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center
  • 8-minute drive to Ripley's Aquarium
  • 20-minute drive to Waccatee Zoo
  • 22-minute drive to Barefoot Landing, an area of shops and restaurants

 Bottom Line

Captain's Quarters Resort is like many hotels along Ocean Boulevard -- rooms are a bit worn, and the highlights are the beachfront location and the numerous pools (particularly the outdoor children's pool, complete with a pirate ship).
