This popular chain operates several properties in the Myrtle Beach area, but this is my overall favorite. It is not on the beach (the sand is 1 mile away), but it is close to the heart of the action in the sprawling Broadway at the Beach complex. It’s also a better choice for couples and singles, especially if you intend to sample the nightlife, which is right on the doorstep (some rooms actually overlook Margaritaville). Rooms are modern, comfy, and fairly standard chain fare, with fast Wi-Fi, 40-inch flatscreen TVs, and plush, queen- or king-size beds.
