Editor’s Review of Hampton Inn & Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort

As a brand, the Hampton Inn offers a value-added standard for family lodging; the value being in the free hot breakfast, 24-hour coffee service and attention to cleanliness, which extends even to the duvet covers (they are washed between each guest stay).

But Hampton Inn & Suites Myrtle Beach Oceanfront Resort goes above and beyond, reaching "resort" status with its location on 300 feet of direct oceanfront space, multiple swimming pools, children's activities, onsite spa and above-par room amenities. These features are the reason this Myrtle Beach property won the Lighthouse Award, which is given to the top five percent of all Hampton Inn locations worldwide. It also won the "Best in Hospitality Award" from the Myrtle Beach Area
... more Hospitality Association, for achieving the highest standard in customer satisfaction.

Each of the 227 suites and rooms have a private balcony. The location, directly on the Atlantic Ocean coastline, means you'll sleep to the sound of the surf. The room and lobby d├ęcor is nautical, but in an updated, modern way, with pine flooring, neutral tones, and motifs of shells, anchors and lighthouses.

The Hampton Inn & Suites is set among a dense collection of hotels and motels on Ocean Boulevard, which is a hopping tourist destination several months of the year. The Myrtle Beach area, also known as the "Grand Strand," has plenty to offer, both indoor and out.

Some of the family-friendly attractions we enjoyed were the Pirates Voyage dinner show, Alligator Adventure, the Sky Wheel, MagiQuest and Ripley's Aquarium at Broadway on the Beach. Seeking simpler pleasures, we collected seashells on the beach, walked the Boardwalk and Second Avenue Pier, and played several of the 45 miniature golf courses in the area.

The resort has an equally appealing north and south tower, which share a lobby and a lower level, where the indoor pools are located. Each has its own breakfast dining area. There are a total of 227 rooms and suites. Children 18 years and younger stay free when sharing accommodations with an adult, and a third or fourth adult can stay free when sharing a room with paying guests.

There are six different levels of rooms with varying configurations: Side View Room, Family Suite, Oceanfront Double Queen Room, Oceanfront King Room, Oceanfront King Suite and Oceanfront Two Bedroom/Two Bath Suite. All rooms have private balconies and a coffee maker. Cribs are available for use at no charge and there is daily housekeeping service. The property covers its comfortable beds with luxury linens, and a combination of down and fiberfill pillows.

Your room will be outfitted with at least one -- and as many as three -- LCD TV's. There are premium movie channels, in-room movies and, on-demand PBS Kids and the Disney Channel. There is also a video game system available at an hourly rate, with games such as Backyard Baseball, MarioKart, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Zelda Twilight Princess.

The largest of these is a two-bedroom family suite with bunk beds and a double bed in the kids room, providing sleeping space for up to six people. In the two-bedroom suite, there is a sliding door in the master bedroom, which opens to an ocean view and is protected by a railing. The suites contain a full-sized refrigerator, a microwave, a two-burner stovetop and a dishwasher. The sliding door to the balcony is soundproof and heavy, which makes it difficult for a child to open without adult assistance. For security, there is a peephole in the door to each guest room. There are no outlet covers.

The standard rooms offer a king or two queen beds and have a mini-fridge and microwave.
