View from the Camelot By The Sea
The Camelot By The Sea is a condo-hotel located in Myrtle beach
, South Carolina. The guest rooms are one-, two- and three-bedroom mini-suites equipped with a full kitchen, living room, one or two baths, and a furnished balcony overlooking the ocean. Most of the suites also include a washer and dryer. The resort
has wireless Internet throughout, two Roman spas, a lazy river for tubing and an indoor and an outdoor pool. The beach itself is just steps away from the hotel, and a concierge is available to supply you with beach umbrellas and chairs.
Wows and Woes
Lawn area and walkway to beach
Overall, the rooms are spacious, well-equipped and very clean.
While wireless Internet is available, it can be spotty in various rooms and common areas.
Customer service is erratic and very much depends on the manager on duty at the time.
A parking garage is available, however it is not very spacious so take care while driving through it.
The daily maid service is only obligated to take out the trash, and cleaning is done on a weekly basis. If your unit does not come with a washer/dryer, be sure to request additional towels early in the day.
Indoor Roman Spa
Since each guest room is privately owned, they all boast different amenities. Be sure to ask the desk clerk to show you your room before accepting it. If you will need a chair and umbrella for the beach, you will need to head out early as they are taken very quickly by the other guests.
Author's Most Memorable Moment
View of the sunrise from the Camelot by the Sea
If you are an early riser, you may have the opportunity to see messages to friends, family or loved ones written in large letters on the sand. I remember waking up one morning and heading out to my balcony, coffee in hand, to see "I Love You" scrawled on the sand. That sentiment, coupled with the most beautiful sunrise in the background, is an experience I won't soon forget.

The Camelot is a great value and a good place to spend a family vacation. You may find better amenities elsewhere, but be prepared to pay for them.
