I'm on the fence with this location. I was disappointed to find out that the HardRock Theme Park went Bankrupt in Oct. It was my understanding it was just ""closed"" for the season... with that being said I went down with friends to hang in Celebrity Sq and was disappointed to find that it was $20 each way in a cab. We were too far away from things to really walk; the hotel was well aware of my intentions for NYE as I had called several times prior to arrival. A GPS unit and a rental would have been more appropriate. The shuttle service to and from the airport a good bonus. Once we checked in I was horrified to see hair on both bed's pillows... it would be advised to use some kind of hair netting or something... although I don't think the beds were not made or made with used sheets as everything was wrinkle free & starchy I do believe that more attention to details is in order... Kitchen areas well stocked with glasses, dish detergents, pans, whatever you need which I didn't expect so that was good... but be warned, there is one heating zone... so I like it cold, my companions liked it hot, suffice to say I was sick all weekend... The heat was up and my bedroom window was open... Also not too crazy about them accepting pets. Dogs wouldn't stop barking but we were too lazy to complain. We were there for the nightlife. The breakfast they provided was great, the staff friendly --- overall, considering I booked this trip blindly and on a whim without having ever been to Myrtle Beach it could have been much worse.
