Recently I had the privledge of taking a week long vacation at Myrtle Beach, and stayed at the Westgate Hotel. It was located right next to the beach on south Ocean blvd, "the strip" as some people call it, and was also close to the long pier. This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in compared to the reasonable price I had to pay.
The hotel was located right next to the Family Kingdom waterpark and was just a few blocks from the Pavilion which has several rides, attractions, and games to play. The owners of the facility were very courtieous and friendly. Our second floor, oceanfront room was very clean and tidy, and provided a wonderful view of the ocean which made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel had several amenities such as, an outdoor pool and childrens waterpark. It also had a resturant, bar, and fitness center that was located on the first floor.
The Westgate Hotel was located just walking distance from many of the shops and resturants that are located on the main part of ocean blvd which as I mentioned was called "The Strip".
It was also only two miles from the family amusement park, Broadway at the Beach, which has tons of attractions for all members of the family including shops, resturants, and live shows daily.
All of these factors combined to form one of the best beach vacations I have ever had, and if you are looking for a great Myrtle Beach experience and are looking for a reasonably priced hotel than I strongly recommend visiting the Westgate Hotel.
