Right on the beach, between downtown and North Myrtle Beach
The hotel is right on the sand, just north of Downtown Myrtle Beach. It sits on a somewhat 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.
Right on the beach, the Grande Shores offers one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, all with full kitchens and at least a partial ocean view. The rooms are pretty run-down, with dated decor, low-quality bedspreads and thin mattresses -- but perks like free Wi-Fi and free parking add value. The three pools aren't the most exciting in Myrtle Beach, but they're spread out, which helps diffuse the crowds. It's a so-so option for travelers on a budget.
