News from SeaSide
Several upgrades and improvements are underway at Seaside Resort.
We've painted the interior corridors and added new flooring in areas such as the breakfast room. Guests will enjoy new flat screen smart televisions with a variety of features that are being installed in our condominiums.
A beach nourishment project by the City of North Myrtle Beach and Army Corps of Engineers has resulted in improvements to the beach by way of restoration of dunes and other efforts to combat beach erosion.
Our guests will love the new beach access ramp that is under construction. At its completion, the ramp will be handicap accessible and make it easier to get on the beach.
Employees Recognized at Holiday Party
Behind every great resort is a great group of employees who put guests first. Our sister property, Avista Resort, hosted a joint holiday party for our valued employees complete with a catered meal, entertaining games, various door prizes, and gifts. It was a great way to conclude 2017.
Employees who reached various employment milestones were recognized for 5, 10, 15, and 20 years of service.
"Everyone won a prize and everyone had a smile on their face," said Jim Eggen, general manager. "The smiling faces made it all worth it."

"Everything from the location to the staff to the cleanliness, we have everything we need. That is why we keep coming back. The addition of the DVD's in the lobby last year was a real bonus."
"The 3 bedroom condo we stayed in was wonderful! Very roomy, with plenty of space for my large family. The beds were very good quality. The kitchen area was stocked sufficiently for a family of six. The view... spectacular. The staff is very courteous and professional. We enjoyed the convenience of on site breakfast. We will definitely stay again." - Christine M., 12/23/17 after a 4 night stay

Fun in the Sun
Beach Travel Tips
There is never a lack of fun things to see and do in the Myrtle Beach area. Below are some tips to help you have the best Myrtle Beach vacation possible!
- Get to the beach early in the day: If it's going to be a beautiful day, there's nothing wrong with heading to the shore earlier rather than later. It's not usually as crowded, and although the water may seem a bit cooler than it will be at 2:30PM, it will still feel refreshing and wonderful. The sun doesn't shine as intensely in the morning either. Afterward, you'll have plenty of time to move inside to the indoor pools for a break from the sun!
- Visit in the Off-Season:The Grand Strand area was originally developed as a Summer Resort area. However, the fall and spring are considered the shoulder seasons and may actually be the best time of the year to travel. Warm temperatures still allow for beach activities, but the high heat and humidity drops considerably. The rates during the off-season are also much lower than during the summer months.
