Editor’s Review of Marina Inn at Grande Dunes

Few Myrtle Beach hotels are more family friendly than the Marina Inn at Grand Dunes. Complimentary DVD libraries, rooms with kitchens and multiple bedrooms, a private beach, helpful staff, top-notch kids' programs and fantastic amenities make Marina Inn at Grand Dunes an excellent choice for families staying in the Myrtle Beach area. Make no mistake: Marina Inn is not an oceanfront property like many other area hotels. But it does offer free air-conditioned shuttle access to a nearby private beach (about a five-minute ride) that is clean, beautiful and uncrowded.

There's no shortage of personal attention at the Marina Inn. For those who might find Myrtle Beach and its bevy of high-rise hotels a bit too commercialized, Marina
... more Inn is a welcome respite -- despite its size. In the lobby of this 200-room hotel, guests will find friendly concierges who wait behind large wooden desks ready to recommend restaurants and activities, and answer questions.

Although this upscale property is not a budget hotel, it offers copious free activities like free bikes, free beach access, free movies and free kids' programs. It's a good idea to consider the costs of these perks when comparing hotel rates. less
