Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Waterfront location in North Myrtle Beach
  • Spacious multi-room condos with balconies and great ocean or inlet views
  • All units have full kitchens with dishwashers, washers and dryers
  • Casual oceanfront dining at 3500 Ocean Grill
  • Rooftop pool, lazy river, multiple Jacuzzis, and a kiddy pool with a water feature
  • Small fitness center with inlet views
  • Free Wi-Fi, HBO, and parking

Cons

  • Dated, worn decor
  • Most rooms have old tube TVs
  • Restaurant serves lunch during peak seasons only
  • Complaints of uncomfortable beds

Bottom Line

The Prince Resort is a solid mid-range pick in North Myrtle Beach. It offers 175 one-, two- and three-bedroom condos with full kitchens, floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies and sleeper sofas, in two towers right on the beach. The resort features several pools --including a lazy river and a kiddy pool -- a decent oceanfront restaurant, a small fitness center, and miles and miles of beach. But decor is dated and rooms are showing a lot of tear and wear. The property has certainly seen better days, but it still offers good value to families and large groups.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the somewhat less crowded North Myrtle Beach, with fewer touristy attractions than Downtown, but still plenty for visitors to do

Although there's no such thing as a peaceful slice of the Myrtle Beach pie, North Myrtle Beach at least isn't as chaotic as Downtown Myrtle Beach. Streets aren't particularly pedestrian-friendly, though, so a car would be convenient. Multiple bars and restaurants can be found on North Kings Highway.

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.

  • 35-minute drive to Myrtle Beach International Airport
  • 5-minute drive to Ocean Drive Amusement Park
  • 10-minute drive to various restaurants and bars on North Kings Highway
  • 16-minute drive to Barefoot Landing
  • 10-minute drive to various golf courses, like Beachwood Golf Club and Azalea Sands Golf Course
  • 35-minute drive to Downtown Myrtle Beach
