Bottom Line

The Best Western Plus is a dated property -- the decor is worn, the pool area is not pristine, and some rooms only have tube TVs and wired internet -- but guests (especially families) who can overlook the tired appearance of the hotel will appreciate perks like free breakfast, free parking, and free Internet, as well as the multiple pools (including a lazy river), the game room, and the on-site laundry.

Oyster Hotel Review


Right on the beach in Downtwon Myrtle Beach

Map of Best Western Plus The Carolinian Beach Resort

The hotel is right on the beach in Downtown Myrtle 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.

Continually ranked as one of America's best family beach destinations, Myrtle Beach 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.
