Experience "Southern Hospitality Best Western Style" at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Grand Strand Inn & Suites in Myrtle Beach, SC

The main building is located across the street from the ocean: only about 100 yards from the sand! Here, there is a wide variety of room types for every party- suites, efficiencies, and two- and three- bedroom penthouses. These clean, affordable units are sure to put you at ease.

The beachfront building is completely non-smoking (including the common areas) and includes singles, doubles, king and queen suites, and a three bedroom penthouse. All oceanfront rooms have direct ocean views... and private balconies with rocking chairs!

Our private cottages and apartment unit (located west of our main building) or our large penthouses (located either in our main building or oceanfront building) will quickly become your "home away from home". Come with family or friends and stay in the two- or three-bedroom units, or have a more intimate experience in the one-bedroom units.

Join us at the highest ranked BEST WESTERN PLUS property in Myrtle Beach, where you can find every convenience you could want for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation. We cater to families and couples with two separate buildings: a non-smoking oceanfront building and the main building, which is across the street from the beach. Between these two buildings and our specialty cottages & penthouses, the hotel features 19 different room types designed to accommodate any party's need. Our central location in Myrtle Beach is near the Myrtle Beach International Airport and Family Kingdom Amusement Park, with restaurants, bars, and attractions within walking distance.
