On the beach but a bit run down

Posted Aug 17, 2017
Pros: Pillows
Cons: The bathrooms, Movie rentals, Carpets and cleanliness . Needs more pools for adults. And an overhaul
Location: Good location and easy to get to Barefoot Landing.
Hotel location was great and the staff very friendly. The pools were too small and just old and dirty didn't even sit at the pool. Not enough child vs adult pool spots. The 1 bedroom room sleeps six but only one bathroom with 1 sink vanity not even two sinks or oversized top and the bathroom access was in the bedroom only. The bathrooms needed upgrade for sure. The carpets needed changing. The beds and pillows super comfortable. The DVD is a great idea except if you have small children and they want to lay in bed and watch a movie while adults are up they cant because the only DVD is in the living room, we took one out but never watched it because we had to sit in the living room and the coach is not comfortable.

Wonderful place to stay

Posted Aug 4, 2017
Room was clean and smelled good. Restaurant & Sip & Dip pool restaurant had good food. Plenty of pools and hot tubs and a quick walk to beach. You never have to drive anywhere.

No good access to restrooms by pool. They are far.

Posted Jul 29, 2017
Restrooms are really far from pool so you can assume the pools are used as a toilet. No activities by pool. You will see no staff around pool except to move chairs in morning and evening. Decks are not cleaned. We did not use pool the entire trip. The property was not secure or monitored by staff. The checkin process was easy. The hotel room was spacious. The room was clean. We will not return to this property.

We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Unfortunately, before we were builty the city introduced a building code that prevents bathrooms from being put in on ground lpool levels. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We do have staff on site 24 hours a day as well as activity coordinators or kids. They

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While check in time does not start until 4:00PM, we do allow our guests who arrive early to use the water amenities. We have changing rooms available to accommodate. I have shared your comments with our management team to address the cleanliness of our pool area. Please know that this in no way aligns with our high standard of cleanliness.

Beautiful view and beach access

Posted Jul 15, 2017
Pros: Beach view
Cons: Update rooms. Better access to lobby (front doors and driveway were inaccessible for most of our stay). New washer and dryer.
Having never been to Myrtle Beach before, I wasn't sure what to expect or where the best area would be to stay. I think the Avista is probably comparable to many hotels in the area. It had a dated feel, but you could tell that the staff works hard at trying to keep it clean and maintained. My impression of the area is that it's very crowded, with a huge influx of guests, and they do the best they can to keep it at a "nice" level. My biggest issue was the amount of smokers-- even though some areas were designated non smoking, there always seemed to be cigarette smoke in the breeze. Also, the room itself could use some updating and a good scrubbing. The washing machine was unreliable, at best. Fortunately, I had done laundry at the hotel we stayed in during the first leg of our trip....if not, we would have been stuck wearing wet clothes-- the dryer did not work, even after putting it through the cycle 4 or 5 times! Myrtle Beach, overall, has a very crowded, touristy feel, and I don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.

Hotel right on the beach

Posted Jul 8, 2017
Hotel is right on the beach. The beach itself is so soft easy to walk on barefoot with no worries of stepping on rocks, sticks, and what not. Staff is super friendly and goes out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
