Myrtle Beach Resorts – Crown Reef Beach Resort

If you are looking for Myrtle Beach Resorts, the Crown Reef Beach Resort is the perfect place to stay for a family vacation! 

I was provided hotel accommodations at the Crown Reef Beach Resort. All opinions are my own. 

We love to travel! This summer we all went to Paris. That was a pretty incredible trip. So for our Fall break vacation – we needed something a little more budget-friendly! 

Once I was contacted about staying at the Crown Reef Resort in Myrtle Beach, I knew this was going to be our Fall Break destination. 


Myrtle Beach Resorts

Myrtle Beach Resorts - Crown Reef Beach Resort View


I am from Tampa, Florida. I grew up around the Gulf of Mexico beaches. We have also been to beaches along the east coast of Flordia but we had never been to any beaches outside of Florida. So I was very excited for a chance to stay on the beach in Myrtle Beach



3 Reasons To Stay At The Crown Reef Beach Resort


Myrtle Beach Resorts, the Crown Reef Beach Resort

Beach Access 


It was literally steps to the beach and our balcony had a direct view of the beach. It was gorgeous. We could open the sliding glass door and sit on our balcony and listen to the ocean and feel the ocean breeze. My kids had never stayed at a resort on the beach – so this was pretty exciting. We could walk to the ocean and collect shells any time we wanted! 



The waves were so much fun and there were so many shells to collect. We really loved just sitting in the beach chairs and enjoying the peacefulness of the beach. 


Myrtle Beach Resorts - Crown Reef Beach Resort Water Park


It’s A Resort With A Water Park!

The beach is fun but sometimes you just want to play in the pool! The Crown Beach Resort has several pools, a lazy river, jacuzzis, and an indoor water park for kids. Plus they have 3 slides! They have two four-story tall waterslides, silly sub and kiddie slide

  • Relaxing Whirlpools
  • Bridge Pool
  • Island Pool
  • Indoor Pool
  • Lazy River

We were there in October and it was a little chilly. I was so thankful for the heated pools! Plus the kid’s area has retractable walls so that the kids can play all-year-round at the water park! 

Spacious & Affordable Accommodations

As a family of 5, we have trouble finding hotels to stay at that are made for 5 people. There are several types of rooms available to fit every size family! 

We had an ocean view suite and it was huge. In the front room, we had 2 queen beds with a TV and closet. In the middle, we had a full kitchen that included an oven, microwave, plates, utensils, and a full-sized fridge! 

The toilet and shower were in a separate room than the vanity – so it made it easy for all of us to get ready at the same time. 

In the back of the room, we had a pull-out sofa and a murphy bed. The murphy bed was really fun and we could put it up during the day to have more room. This room also had a dining room table and another TV. 

And of course, it had a balcony with gorgeous views! It had a table and 2 chairs so you could sit out there and enjoy your coffee in the morning and watch the sunrise! 


Every room at the Crown Reef Resor is an ocean view room!!         

The hotel has so much more to offer including a breakfast restaurant that is a buffet and another restaurant that is great for lunch and dinner.

There is also an arcade – our kids loved to spend some time playing games and winning prizes! You will also find an ice cream bar!

The location is excellent. It’s not in the middle of all the business of the beach area. It was a quiet area of town and the beach was very peaceful and not crowded at all! 

And you really never need to leave the hotel – there is so much to do and there are many food options. You could even run to the grocery store and stock up the kitchen so you have snacks and meals whenever you are hungry! 

It is also a very budget-friendly hotel! I was checking out rates for the week we went for Fall Break and it was only around $55 for our hotel room! You could have fit 8 people in our room – so it’s a very affordable vacation for small and large families! 

Click here to book your next vacation! We will be back! It’s really amazing to be so close to the beach.
