Great Location!

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Location and comfort.We live in NC and enjoy the coast of both, but I still love my SC beaches that I grew up with.
Cons: cannot think of a thing
Location: Close to all kinds of activities and just a short drive( in the off seasons especially) from Myrtle Beach if you like that kind of thing.
The Avista is close to Ocean Drive, my favorite beach from my teen years. We had never stayed in a highrise before and did not know what to expect. Room was perfect-a small suite really. View of the Atlantic was stunning! The staff was very helpful and the parking and unpacking and repacking are all easy.( We are a married couple in our early 60s.) It was an easy walk to Ocean Drive for fun shops, good restaurants, and we would stay here again for sure. How bout next weekend? We live about 3 and one half hours from the beach.

Loved It.

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: We loved the location, right on the beach. The hot tub was great too. Room was very comfortable and great for our party of four.
Cons: I would add paper towels and dish soap in the kitchen.
Location: Close to shopping and tourist areas. Drove to Myrtle Beach. Giant Skywheel was fun and the boardwalk. And of course, THE BEACH.
My daughter and two granddaughters stayed three days with me at Avista and loved it. We had plenty of beach time but had time to explore the area also. October is a great time to visit the area as the crowds are much smaller than during the summer months. We had great weather the entire time and hated to leave.

Just okay

Posted Oct 9, 2014
The hotel needs a little sprucing up. There were minor cosmetic flaws in the common areas and our room. The beds and furniture were very uncomfortable! And the smell of fried foods in the hallways from the on site restaurant was not pleasant. We would not stay there again.

On The Beach

Posted Oct 6, 2014
Pros: All of it...except the parking garage.
Cons: If there was a way to expand the parking spaces, that would be nice. Parking is a bit of a hassle in the parking garage...too tight!
If walking a short distance outside and being on the beach is what you're looking for...this is the place.

Entry and parking obstacle course

Posted Sep 6, 2014
Who would design a hotel with temporary park/unload on ground level, checkin/lobby on 2nd level and parking garage across the street (uncovered route rain or shine)??? Housekeeping knocked on door both mornings we were there in spite of do not disturb sign.

Good resort, great location

Posted Sep 4, 2014
Pros: Location. Amenities.
Cons: Certain staff.
Check in staff, housekeeping and bartenders were good. Had a terrible last night when another guest on our floor was pounding and yelling on his door at 1:30 am and again at 4:45 am. Complained to front desk and she giggled and said that security had to deal with him. Obviously they didn't otherwise I would have been able to sleep. It was a good reason to get up early and leave. Overall, great experience except noisy neighbour and useless staff around pool and parking area. They did absolutely nothing which wasn't a great feeling upon arriving. Would still go back again though despite their poor service.

Nice hotel right on the ocean

Posted Aug 30, 2014
We rented a 1 bedroom condo oceanfront. Our room was nice and clean and the beach was not too crowded. The staff was friendly and willing to help if needed. It was a relaxing vacation for sure. The only downside is that it is about a half hour from Myrtle Beach, which is where most of the things to do are. But if you're looking for a quieter, less busy getaway I would definitely recommend Avista!
