April Hotel Deals

Myrtle Beach hotels work hard to lure visitors to the beach in early spring, before the peak summer season gets under way. They often offer deep discounts off summer rack rates or other incentives such as attraction tickets or discounts. If you're bringing the kids, check out these hotels with great indoor water features so your little ones can splash and swim even on cooler days.


Easter in Myrtle Beach
