The staff was incredibly helpful. Big shout out to John R during check in and to Antonio who helped us with all our luggage when we were “stuck”. We enjoyed our stay in the Suites bldg. We will be back next year!

This was a good resort for the price, average on the amenities, and general condition of the property. The room we had was updated, but things like missing conditioner and cream (only soap) was some of the little things you get in other motels. Couldn't get an extra pillow, but the front desk did try and help. The worst part is the free breakfast (I'm sure the price is built into our stay so not really free) that is hit or miss with lines, and the last day we had to go to Dunkin Donuts as the line was too long.

Anonymous, thank you for staying with us as you vacationed along the Grand Strand. We are glad that you found our pricing to be competitive and that our amenities were standard for the Myrtle Beach area. Please accept our apology that an additional pillow was not supplied. We will be certain to confer with our desk team as well as housekeeping to find out why your request was not fulfilled. The daily hot breakfast offering began in late March. Due to the input of our guests we have made several changes to improve the breakfast experience. Over the Independence holiday the buffet was converted to two sided service. Additionally the dining area was expanded to allow greater capacity of dinning. Both of these adjustments have yielded very positive results, however, we are sorry that in lieu of waiting you wound up at another venue on your last morning. Thank you for your patronage and for taking time to share areas for improvement. We are pleased that your visit resulted in a very positive vacation experience. You are always welcome at the Dayton House.

Hotel outdated. In our room-shower constantly dripping, toilet ran and light over sink did not work. Free breakfast very disappointting (cold eggs, canned fruit cocktail, no tea, grumpy workers). Ended up going to a great breakfast place on the corner instead. Pool water seemed foggy. High cost to rent beach chair and unbrelka. Desk staff was very pleasant.

Mona, thank you for your recent visit. We were sorry to read that the property did not seem to be as updated as you are normally accustomed to. Please know that both the South and Suites Buildings have been updated in the last three years, which allows patrons more options as they plan their Myrtle Beach getaways. We regret that the daily hot breakfast offering was not more suited to your taste. In the event that you encounter a need please make our food and beverage team aware. They will be happy to monitor egg temperatures and provide an additional supply as needed. Beach chairs and umbrellas are rented through the City of Myrtle Beach via the lifeguards on duty. The Dayton House has no affiliation with these entities. We do, however, provide a bevy of chairs, tables, yellow umbrellas and loungers on our more than two acre oceanfront sunning lawn. You are welcome to enjoy these lawn amenities at no additional cost. Your patronage is greatly appreciated as well as your willingness to share areas in which we might improve. Our door is always open to you, should you visit the Grand Strand again.

Anonymous, we are pleased to have been part of such an enjoyable Myrtle Beach visit. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. It is wonderful to know that our staff made you feel welcome and at home and that you made the most of our many water amenities. Please visit with us during your next trip to the Grand Strand. We would love to have you back!

The outdoor amenities are great. Pools are nice and lots of room for everyone. I stayed in the 'suites' and they left a lot to be desired. Tiny uncomfortable beds...dirty carpets, hallways, and elevators. Very dated, very run down.

Anonymous, we appreciate that you chose the Dayton House during your recent visit to Myrtle Beach. We are glad that you enjoyed the array of pools, water amenities as well as the large oceanfront sunning lawn. Thank you also for recognizing the exceptional service provided by our team. It is disappointing that you were unable to more fully enjoy the recently updated Suites Building which reopened to guests in March of this year. These units received new carpet, stainless steel kitchen appliances, cabinets, living room furniture, window treatments, lighting and an all new paint scheme. We strive to provide accommodations, amenities and services that satisfy a broad range of beach going visitors. Thank you for making us aware of your concerns. As future improvement projects are discussed your input will become even more valuable. Please know that you are always welcome at the Dayton House. We would love the opportunity to serve you and your travel companions once more.

Right on the beach and plenty of pool space if you prefer that.
