Great room and gym
The room was great but the bed hurt our backs after two nights. Somehow our rental car windshield was cracked when we went out the next afternoon after parking it in the middle of the parking lot the evening before. The gym was great and the pools were nice but the bars did not open due to rain even though there were lots of guests hanging out under the cabana put a damper on the vacation

A suite for room prices.
The room we checked into was really outstanding. A full kitchen, living room, king bedroom and a large bathroom. The grounds were well kept, the fitness room was very well equipped and the beach was a short walk. Great location and value.

The resort was very nice. We had a great time, and the staff was all very helpful, and friendly. We didn't feel pressured to hear a presentation about buying a vacation package. We really enjoyed the beach and the pools, and will definitely be back.

Great place for family vacation.
We enjoyed our stay at Hoilday Inn vacation South Beach. We spent a week at this resort and can't wait to go back. Rooms were comfortable, clean, well kept, well stocked, spacious, and quiet. Property is well maintained and had a bar, two swimming pools and snack shops. Even tho situated in flight landing path of airport, noise was not bothersome. The resort is across the road from the beach. Shuttle took us to the private beach property with a small pool. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it. Thank you for the great experience.

NO Beach! Nothing after 5pm
I am a Platium Member with Holiday Inn they gave me a FREE Immediate UPgraded room to a 2 Bedroom Villia OMG Beyond Awesome room, the staff was so pleasant, smiled, greeted you and welcomed you. They will immediately try to push you off to a Time Share Sales Person who has druel all over them LOL Not Really but sort of, parking is tight between vehicles and with the way the parking lot is you have to be EXTRA careful pulling out as cars are hard to see sometimes driving by, also they don't have sidewalks around the property (most of them# also each building does not have a walk through so you would need to walk around them, especially if using another pool area or taking a walk to the beach or around property, the beach is across the highway yes its a highway OceanView 5 lanes + the walkway to the front of the property and the walkway from the other side of the highway so keep this in mind if you are wanting to see the beach or go to the beach, they said they had shuttles to take you but I never saw one and had a pick up station right outside my villa, I enjoyed the longer walk after a big dinner, the snack/restaurant closed at 5 so only place to get a drink was at a vending machine, no snacks, etc. I think the pool bar was open from 4-6 but I got in around 5 ish and did not see anyone down there, the pool area looked very welcoming and decorated nicely. Also 1 thing I thought was interesting in my room they had a sign by the pool towels that stated if I needed to swap out towels or fail to bring my towel back there would be a charge, they also charged for more coffee, creemer, and additional kitchen supplies, made additional signs to let me know they left me 2 packages of coffee, 1 bx of Klenex, paper towel roll, shampoo, conditioner, & yes TP LOL, I was almost to afraid to use 1 sheet this would be a great place to stay & purchase IF it was located right on the beach, #even though its located down on the dirtier side of MB sand wise sand is not white and lots of trash on beach) I think the rates were decent, location of hotel was easy to get in and out of restaurants are nearby including the new Market area, OH almost forgot to mention that you will have A LOT of Airplane noise as the airport is very close by and they fly right over head. Activities for the kids will cost you money $4-$10 depending on activitiy and age. The last thing I will mention is after reading several of the reviews I am very disappointed that IHG & Holiday Inn has not responded to all the very negative complaints about the sales people, for those of you that want to take that abuse remember if the payment does not pay for your time loss don't go, and if you do decide to go they have 90 minutes of your time don't give them 91! They are trained for Immediate High Pressure Sales, they only get 1 opportunity to sell it to you.

Had a great time, Just had two issues while staying here. I expected breakfast like all of your other holiday inns have. I was looking forward to there scrumptious cinnamon rolls. We also requested two double beds but got one king bead instead. Other than that it was a good satay and I would come back again.

Good for a hotel for a Vacation Club so so
Made a reservation for a hotel traveling south to Flordia, wanted a two day rest from traveling, called the 800 number for Holiday Inn for Mrytle Beach, we are priority members, and the reservation service made a reservation at the Vacation Beach. Once arrived we were greated with a warm reception, then we were told to go over to another desk to redeem our $20 coupon. Upon arriving we were asked if we wanted to increase our coupon, we then realized this was a sale pitch for the Vacation Club, we told the gentleman tha we were not interested. He was quite insistence and when we finially let him know we were not interested his cordial mood changed and became rude. Two other times we were approached befor we left. I finally told the last person"don't go there". For a hotel stay it was great thus the above review, for a vacation club I would rate it low. The units were in need of upgrading. Mirrors in bathroom were poor, WiFi poor, having to do own house work needs to be looked at. The room needed a deep cleaning, water bottles behind furniture, cereal under couch etc. the holiday Inn Express are better maintained. If I was considering buying into your vacation club after staying two nights I would not.

Great vacation resort
This place is a wonderful place to stay. It offers things to do, wonderful pools, and access to the beach. The shuttle even has a car seat so even with a young child you can use it. The accommodation a clean and comfortable. The only down side is the time share hassle. People kept calling us trying to get us to look at property. It got to the point that we unpluged the phone. Once we did that we had a peaceful stay.

Spring Break Vacation
Had a wonderful experience at this resort. Expereince some issues trying to book as for a period of time the 2 bedroom suite was not available. The week before I tried to book again and the reservations office said it was not available and then shortly thereafter it was available online so I booked it online. While there the place is wondeerful with all of the pools and my boys favorite, the lazy river.
