On the sand in Northern Myrtle Beach
The hotel is right on the sand in Northern Myrtle Beach. It's a bit removed from some of the highlights in Downtown Myrtle Beach, but is a bit more low-key as a result.
Resting a good 15 miles north of Downtown, North Myrtle Beach has less nightlife (though there are some fun bars at Barefoot Landing), and a bit of a slower pace. Plenty of family-friendly attractions are located here, including an aquarium and the O.D. Pavilion & Amusement Park. The area is known for being less high-end than Downtown, and offers visitors more budget-friendly hotels.
Located right on the sand in North Myrtle Beach, the Embassy Suites is a step above some of the other mega-hotels that crowd Myrtle Beach. Sure, the 255-suite hotel is packed with families during the summer months, but the contemporary two-room suites with light wood furniture, blue fabrics, and polka dot accents; free evening snack and drink receptions; and the fitness complex -- complete with tennis courts and an indoor pool -- make this hotel stand out from the rest.
