Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Gets overly crowded during peak season
  • Some rooms have views of a parking lot
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Westgate is an affordable family-friendly hotel right on the water. While the rooms are a bit on the tacky side -- with clashing patterns and colors throughout -- they are clean and have spacious balconies with great ocean views. There's plenty to keep families with young children entertained, such as multiple pools, a lazy river, a children's activity center, and a large game room. It's also adjacent to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Downtown, 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. It's also adjacent to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

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.

  • 9-minute drive to Myrtle Beach International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to Family Kingdom Amusement Park
  • 16-minute walk or 3-minute drive to Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade
  • 2-minute drive to Ripley's Believe it or Not museum
  • 6-minute drive to the Myrtle Beach Convention Center
  • 9-minute drive to Ripley's Aquarium
  • 17-minute drive to O.D. Pavilion Amusement Park
  • 22-minute drive to Barefoot Landing, an area of shops and restaurants
  • 26-minute drive to Waccatee Zoo
