Bottom Line

This upper-middle-range property has a convenient location on the waterfront, with direct access to a great beach, and proximity to shopping, several golf courses, and downtown Myrtle Beach. The clean rooms are among the nicest in this price category in Myrtle Beach, though the decor style is a bit dated. The property also offers several pools and an adequate fitness center. It is very convenient for families traveling with kids: it has a lazy river, an 18-hole mini-golf course, a kid’s program, and full kitchens in every unit.

Oyster Hotel Review


On a sandy beach in the heart of Myrtle Beach

Map of Anderson Ocean Club and Spa

The Anderson is located directly on a sandy beach, along with dozens of other resorts, very close to the city center, and to chain restaurants. There are very few local stores in the area, but the huge Broadway At The Beach mega-mall and entertainment center is only a few minutes’ drive from the hotel.

Myrtle Beach's Downtown is the place to be in this seaside resort city, home to a bustling boardwalk, numerous all-American and international eateries, shops, and huge resorts. It also offers a number of water activities -- deep sea fishing, jet skiing, sunbathing, and those banana boat rides that will keep you from taking yourself too seriously. If you're hoping for a busy, entertaining vacation for the family, Downtown is your spot.
