Recent guests said the staff is friendly, rooms are clean and the pools are refreshing
A car (or the hotel shuttle) is needed to get to the beach
In-room spa treatments and pristine grounds make the Marina Inn the ideal getaway for leisure-seekers. Guests report the rooms are spacious with well-appointed amenities like private balconies, 47-inch flat-screen TVs and Tommy Bahama toiletries. Many also pinpoint the unobstructed views of either the golf course or the Intracoastal Waterway (offered in almost every room) as the hotel's main allure. But beachgoers should note that the Marina Inn is not an oceanfront property. To get to the beach, you'll need to drive a few miles down Grand Dunes Boulevard. The hotel also offers a free shuttle to get to the beach. If you get tired of spa treatments, leisure activities and plentiful dining on the resort premises, you can also take a 10-mile drive south to downtown Myrtle Beach.
