Review Summary



  • Not directly on the beach
  • No fitness center

Bottom Line

Unlike most hotels in Myrtle Beach, the Aqua Beach Inn is across the street from the beach rather than right on it. This may be a drawback, but in many ways the hotel is a step above the mega-resorts along the sand: The hotel is rarely crowded, the pool area is clean, and the rooms, complete with kitchens, balconies, and flat-screen TVs, are bright and fresh. As a small hotel, though, the Aqua Beach Inn lacks some typical amenities like a fitness center, a kiddie pool, and on-site restaurants -- but many restaurants are within walking distance.

Downtown, across the street from the beach

Map of Aqua Beach Inn

Unlike many hotels in Myrtle Beach, the Aqua Beach Inn is across the street from the beach, rather than directly on it. It's a busy street, but there are sidewalks for the many tourists who are staying in the area, and the 14th Avenue Pier is right across the street as well.

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.
