We booked in the Wyndham Towers for one of those 4 days 3 nights, well after we cancelled in Sept because of incoming storm we were sent to Camelot, They put us in a studio, it was not clean, and the air handling system had mold in the filters, but the main thing, and you'll see in the photo, the circuit box was wide open, the only thing between you and the electric was a canvas picture. My wife slipped on a rug with no slip pad under it, cut her toe, we down to officer and informed them about the fall and rug, they gave her a band-aid. This was unit 1834...The power box is a fire and safety hazard, we paid $242. for this, never again
We had a wonderful time, the room was able to sleep 6 comfortably & they were very clean. The beds were comfirtable, TVs were large & the views were amazing!! We have decided to make the Camelot by the Sea our new Myrtle Beach vacation home ????
