Bottom Line

The three-pearl Oceanfront Litchfield Inn is a beachfront property that mostly attracts families and couples who want an extended stay beach getaway. Apart from the beach, there are several restaurants and beach shops within a 10-minute walk. The 100 rooms are individually decorated, so some are more dated than others. However, they all have mini-fridges and microwaves, and some include kitchenettes, balconies, or ocean views. There are two outdoor pools, a pool bar, Austin’s Ocean One restaurant, and a simple cold breakfast. Drawbacks include a resort fee to cover Wi-Fi, breakfast, and parking, varying reports on Wi-Fi connectivity, and no gym. Travelers could also consider the Litchfield Beach & Golf Resort which has golf courses, a gym, and indoor pools.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Motel-like property with ocean views, and a clientele of families and couples

This motel-like property sits directly on the beach

Oceanfront Litchfield Inn is more akin to a motel than an inn, as many of the rooms are accessed by exterior hallways. With a collection of individually-owned suites and rooms that vary in design and datedness, it also has the feel of a time-share property. The quality of a guests’ stay is often dependent on what type of unit they receive upon checking in. Overall, the atmosphere is quite laid-back compared to the party resorts in nearby Myrtle Beach. The lobby is contemporary, but mostly functional with just a small seating area with a wicker couch and two matching chairs. Rocking chairs by the entrance led a homey vibe. Most guests (both families and couples) congregate around the pool and bar area during the day. 

Location

On the beach; a 10-minute walk to restaurants and a four-minute drive to a golf course

Map of Oceanfront Litchfield Inn

Oceanfront Litchfield Inn is perfect for families who don’t want to the leave the property, as it’s right on the beach and offers little else to do or see within walking distance. There are some dining and shopping options within a 10-minute walk away. The nearest grocery store (to stock the kitchens) is a 16-minute walk or three-minute drive from the property. The closest attraction is a golf course that takes four minutes to reach by car. It’s an 11-minute drive to Huntington Beach State Park and seven minutes by car to Pawley’s Island. Myrtle Beach is a good day trip at a 40-minute drive away. It takes a 36-minute drive to reach the Myrtle Beach International Airport. 

Rooms

Individually decorated rooms with flat-screen TVs, microwaves, and mini-fridges; some are more dated than others

The Ocean Front Tower Room incorporates homey decor and solid amenities

The rooms at Oceanfront Litchfield Inn are individually owned, and decorated in a range of homey to contemporary, and even modern to quite dated. Guests  report that some rooms have cleanliness issues such as visible mold and mildew smells. All offer a flat-screen TV, coffeemaker, free Wi-Fi, microwave, refrigerator, and alarm clock radio. Suites have additional amenities such as kitchenettes or kitchens with sinks, stoves, dishwashers, and ovens. Some rooms have ocean views while others offer screened-in porches. Like the rooms, bathroom styles vary: some have showers and others have shower/tub combos. All bathrooms provide toiletries and hairdryers. Many guests note that the rooms around the pool are subjected to bothersome noise or less privacy than others. 

Features

Two outdoor pools, pool bar, restaurant, cold breakfast, bike rentals, laundry room, Wi-Fi and parking -- resort fee

Two outdoor pools are located on-site

Despite the fact that it lacks a gym, this hotel covers most of the basics and offers a few extras -- though the resort fee technically covers the freebies. There are two outdoor pools surrounded by loungers, both of which are serviced by a low-key pool bar that serves items like sandwiches and seafood. The hotel also has a fine dining restaurant, Austin’s Ocean One, that offers American cuisine and has ocean views. A cold breakfast with items like pastries, yogurt, fruit, cheeses, and cereals is provided. Additional amenities include bike rentals, a coin-operated laundry room, one fully-equipped meeting space, free Wi-Fi, and free outdoor parking. Note that there are varying reports on the Wi-Fi quality throughout the property.
