In Downtown, a short drive from the beach
Unlike most hotels in Myrtle Beach, the Hampton Inn is not located on the beach. In fact, it's a 5-minute drive from the beach, but is within walking distance of numerous restaurants in the Broadway at the Beach complex.
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 in the Broadway at the Beach complex, the 141-room Hampton Inn is in some ways a typical chain hotel, with no on-site restaurant (aside from the free breakfast area) and a small fitness center. But this Hampton Inn's rooms are a step above, with nicer-than-standard decor featuring bright red accent walls, flat-screen TVs, microwaves, mini-fridges, and large bathrooms. Though the hotel is not on the beach, as many Myrtle Beach hotels are, it is within walking distance of several restaurants and an amusement park, and it has two decent on-site pools.
