Top Oceanfront Hotels in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach oceanfront hotels are a beach-lover’s dream, with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean, direct access to the shoreline, and incredible prices to suit any budget. Step onto the sand right from your beachside resort and soak in that warm Carolina sun. 

The Grand Strand is home to more than 60 miles of sandy shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean. So, which stretch of beach is best for your group? Guests looking to stay close to popular attractions should opt for an oceanside hotel near the Boardwalk and downtown area. Bay View on the Boardwalk makes a winning choice for exciting spring break or summer vacation trips. In contrast, resorts in North Myrtle Beach and the famous Golden Mile offer the most serene settings along the Grand Strand. Enjoy a rejuvenating stay at North Beach Resort & Villas, an oceanfront hotel overlooking the quietest beach around. 

Each of these seaside properties offers more than a convenient location and stunning views. The best oceanfront hotels feature luxurious resort-style amenities, including sparkling indoor and outdoor pools, refreshing hot tubs, convenient dining options, and on-site fitness centers. You can lounge on the beach, take a dip in the pool, and grab a bite to eat without ever getting in your car. 

Vacationers with any budget can book a room at an oceanside Grand Strand resort. Sure, it might cost a bit more to stay at an oceanfront property, but the cheap nightly rates and frequent resort deals make these beachfront properties extremely affordable. Most of these beachfront hotels offer various lodging options that help guests get the best bang for their buck. Opt for a city-view suite at an oceanfront resort and still enjoy direct beach access while saving some money. Or, reserve an ocean view condo for an affordable rate with a stunning view.
