Review Summary



Bottom Line

Bay Watch Resort & Conference Center's 356 large rooms are basic and functional, but could use a fresh coat paint and multiple updates, especially to the dressers and bedspreads. While the on-site amenities, like the gym and numerous large pools, are convenient, they also need some TLC (particularly the mildew on the ceiling in the gym). There isn't a resort on the south side of the hotel, which helps keep the beach (relatively speaking) rather quiet. All in all all, it's a so-so family-friendly option in less-crowded North Myrtle Beach.

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 Bay Watch Resort & Conference Center

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. Restaurants and bars can be found just a short 5-minute drive away. A car is recommended if you're staying in this area.

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.

  • 30-minute drive to Myrtle Beach International Airport

  • 5-minute drive to Ocean Drive Amusement Park
  • 5-minute drive to Barefoot Landing
