When picking a hotel in Myrtle Beach, SC, you take a number of things for granted. The fact that you'll be near a golf course, for example, as there are more than 250 to chose from in and around the area. A simple outdoor pool won't do, either, when there is a plethora of lazy rivers beckoning you to float around on a giant inner tube. Stay anywhere on the Grand Strand and you'll find more restaurants and attractions than you could possibly visit during a weeklong vacation. Here are our picks for those who want all of these features, plus stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean!

This luxurious property is in the heart of the Grand Strand, appealing to golfers, couples and families alike, thanks to the lazy river, spa, proximity to Broadway at the Beach and, last but not least, the gorgeous oceanfront views.
Hampton Inn & Suites Myrtle Beach
Whether you’re walking through the 2-story lobby, sipping on a cocktail at the beach bar, floating along the lazy river or relaxing on your suite’s balcony, you’ll never be without a beautiful ocean view.
