Review Summary



  • Gets overly crowded during peak season
  • Some rooms have views of a parking lot
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Westgate is an affordable family-friendly hotel right on the water. While the rooms are a bit on the tacky side -- with clashing patterns and colors throughout -- they are clean and have spacious balconies with great ocean views. There's plenty to keep families with young children entertained, such as multiple pools, a lazy river, a children's activity center, and a large game room. It's also adjacent to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

Oyster Hotel Review


Downtown, right on the beach

Map of Westgate Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort

The hotel is right on the 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. It's also adjacent to the Family Kingdom Amusement Park.

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.
