Stay in the Lap of Luxury in Myrtle Beach, on a Budget

Finding a good deal on a nice hotel in Myrtle Beach is a lot like the rule of thumb when it comes to investing in real estate - location, location, location. In the case of Myrtle Beach, the distance one stays from the oceanfront goes a long way toward determining how much one will spend on accommodations. By simply moving across Ocean Boulevard, parties can save hundreds over the course of a week. For those willing to move farther inland and commute to and from the beach there are even more savings to be had. Of course, the word "budget" is a relative one. The goal is "value," as in the best bang for the buck, and that especially applies to those who want to look off their balconies and see ocean. In those cases, all oceanfront resorts are not created equal. Some resorts, like the Sea Mist Resort, guests can still stay seaside but at a lower price than some of the other luxury complexes around town, But for those who don't mind driving a little to save a lot, places like the inland Country Inn & Suites are the perfect fit. And for golfers looking for the best places to stay and play, visitors can get special discounts on accommodations and greens fees at golf condos like River Oaks Golf Plantation. Regardless of what you are looking for, there are savings to be had for those who shop around.
