Ocean Sands Amenities

Ocean Sands Beach Resort Amenities

When you're planning a beach vacation, it can be difficult to choose between the atmosphere and service of a smaller, family-owned motel and the security and peace of mind that a national chain can offer. Look no further... The Best Western Ocean Sands Resort is one of the few Myrtle Beach hotels that can offer its guests the best of both worlds! And it is a Best Western Director's Award winning Resort.

Owned and operated by the McGonigal family since 1989, the Ocean Sands Resort has built a reputation as one of the best family resort hotels in Myrtle Beach. In 1997, following the construction of a new ten-story tower complete with indoor and outdoor pools, a lazy river and countless other oceanfront amenities, Best Western welcomed the Ocean Sands to its family of quality hotel and resort accommodations.

Featuring 95 oceanfront one- and two-room suites and efficiencies, along with 21 deluxe side view king rooms at the Beach Villa Annex, the Best Western Ocean Sands Resort offers a little something for everyone. Our oceanfront location in the heart of North Myrtle Beach is close to just about everything, including the fine speciality shops, restaurants and entertainment at Barefoot Landing, world-class shopping at the Tanger Outlets, headline entertainment at the Alabama Theatre and the House of Blues, numerous family attractions in both Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach, more than 100 golf courses, great shopping and dining. By the way... did we mention the ocean?

Come visit us this year... we think you'll agree that there is no other resort in Myrtle Beach or on the South Carolina Grand Strand that can compare!

Didn't quite want to go home yet and booked this room for 1 night, what a great experience! Staff was amazing, as in the people I would love to hire to work at my business, super attentive to all our needs! Room is huge, with a kitchenette and the oceanfront rooms have a beautiful view! Loved it!
Stayed here a few years back but forgot to review it. Great place! Right next to the Anderson which is where I stayed the year before. The rooms are spacious and clean. Love that it had a kitchen and a ocean view. The balcony is a perfect size to chill, have drinks and watch the sunrise or sunset.
We have been coming to this hotel for the last ten years. I have never been disappointed. Tip: book early and arrive early to enjoy the nice amenities. The staff will go above and beyond to accommodate you and your family.
