Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Pool area is extremely crowded, particularly on nice days
  • Very slow elevators
  • Some kitchens are in need of an update

Bottom Line

The 540-room Caravelle Resort is like many hotels in Myrtle Beach -- it's right on the beach, there are numerous pools, and it's always crowded. The bedroom decor is a bit more up-to-date than at some nearby hotels, but several of the kitchens showed wear and tear and the elevators move slowly, especially considering the hoards of people in line to use them. Overall, the hotel is a good value -- with freebies like free Wi-Fi and free parking -- but it doesn't offer much more than you would expect in Myrtle Beach (although the fitness center is on the ground level with floor-to-ceiling windows, unlike the many basement fitness centers in the area).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • 18-minute drive to Myrtle Beach International Airport
  • Right on the beach
  • 7-minute drive to Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade
  • 9-minute drive to OD Pavilion Amusement Park
  • 9-minute drive to Ripley's Believe it or Not museum
  • 10-minute drive to Family Kingdom Amusement Park
  • 10-minute drive to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center
  • 10-minute drive to Ripley's Aquarium
  • 12-minute drive to Barefoot Landing, an area of shops and restaurants
  • 26-minute drive to Waccatee Zoo
