  • Pricey resort fees and taxes

Bottom Line

The 378-room Avista Resort offers guests lots of options on the activities front, like convenient beach access, multiple indoor and outdoor pools and lazy rivers, and a large fitness center with various cardio machines. Oceanside, higher-level rooms have killer views, but all rooms have tacky decor, like uncomfortable, bright bedspreads and an overabundance of ruffled towels. Its location in North Myrtle Beach is a bit farther away from Downtown's touristy attractions, but it gives guests a bit of a break from the crowds and hustle.

Oyster Hotel Review


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

Map of Avista Resort

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. Just a few blocks southwest of the hotel are a bundle of restaurants and bars. Although there's plenty that's close enough to walk to from the hotel, the roads aren't particularly pedestrian-friendly, so many guests will prefer to drive.

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.
