T he e rental was good. However, the condo needs some upgrades. The front bedroom window facing the ocean needs to be replaced due to high air leakage and loss of gas between insulated glass panels. The door and window unit, facing the ocean, needs to be replaced or gaskets replaced again, high air leakage felt. Entrance door needs new gasket to stop drafts.- Jack T. from Pine City, Posted: 04/20/2023
It was a good vacation, but condo needs some renovations. Window in side bedroom needs to be replaced. It has lost its seal and is discolored. Doors to the patio leak air. The seals need replacing or doors need to be replaced. In all, the condo was good.- Jack T. from Pine City, Posted: 03/03/2023
I’ve come here and stayed at the Royal Garden 3of the last 5 winters. It’s one of my favorite places to stay. Close to everything and even has a bar, The Salty Pickle on the ground floor. The pickle is a great place to go for events and drinks.- Jack T. from Pine City, Posted: 02/03/2023
The resort is very nice, and in a good location. We had unit 1610, which was a nice unit. Only down fall was the beds were very hard and uncomfortable. Other then that it was great. We plan on coming back next year.- Martin C. from Ronda, Posted: 09/27/2022
This was the busiest it has been since we have been staying at Royal Garden. One of the elevators was out of service the entire week so we waited extra long periods of time trying to catch the elevator. They were also doing some kind of pressure washing or something and the scaffolding was right at our balcony and we heard mens voices the entire time. The unit was clean though and there was always room outside to spread out.- Kathy P. from Salem, Posted: 05/09/2022
For the most part my rental was great. There were a few issues like the elevator repair and that the condo needs upkeep repairs and updating and notifications needing to be sent when major work in the building need to be forwarded to the renters. But in all it was a good vacation and a place to return next year.- Jack T. from Pine City, Posted: 04/03/2022
Wonderful place to get away from the bitter cold of the north. May be cool but much better than below zero temperatures.- Jack T. from Pine City, Posted: 02/03/2022
Awesome- Rhonda H. from Burlington, Posted: 08/23/2021
The condo was beautiful, the resort was great, the salty pickle bar was a very friendly place. Had a wonderfully peaceful time.- Timothy M. from Drakesboro, Posted: 05/31/2021
Great location and property. Excellent customer service from Garden City Realty! Will be back!- Anonymous from Gahanna, Posted: 05/27/2021
We had a lovely vacation. Glad they had made some minor repairs to the unit. The biggest problem we had was that the fire alarm went off 4 different times during our stay, once at 6:00 am and once at 6:30 am. Not really what you want to hear when you are trying to relax on vacation. False alarms every time. Also, you couldn't get to the luggage carts without calling the HOA association and having someone come and unlock them for you. We just made multiple trips to get our things to the room.- Kathy P. from Salem, Posted: 05/04/2021
Condo rental experience itself very easy,
Only real complaint was elevator was sometimes slow and very unpredictable.
Outdoor pool was still closed while surrounding condo pools were open, so that was disappointing.
Overall nice property with friendly grounds employees
Would book with Garden City Realty again.- Anonymous from Ada, Posted: 04/04/2021
The Condo was what we were expecting! Had a great time.- Anonymous from Unionville, Posted: 10/16/2020
We had a lovely week. Pleasant weather for being outside by the pool or on the beach. Not too hot or too cold. Condo was great!- Kathy P. from Salem, Posted: 10/01/2020
We had a awesome time very nice rental- Veronica L. from Erlanger, Posted: 06/15/2020
We had great time, the view was amazing!
What an amazing way to spend Christmas!- Tammy R. from Christiansburg, Posted: 01/16/2020
Very enjoyable stay. #1610 was perfect, clean and comfortable with a wonderful oceanfront view; easy access via elevator to parking and the beach. The "Sand Bar"on the ground floor was a fun stopping place before or after dinner. Highly recommend it.- Anonymous from Charlotte, Posted: 10/08/2019
We enjoyed our fabulous view.The room was clean and decorated very cute. It was a great location. It was a little warmer than my A/C at home, I would recommend the owners keep some floor fans there to help circulate some air. Other than that it was good.- Tracy H. from Taylors, Posted: 10/01/2019
We always enjoy staying at Royal Garden Resort and have stayed in several different condos. Love the location and the pools. The main bedroom in this unit has damage on the wall under the window. I would say water damage. It was very much an eyesore and needs to be fixed. There was also some of the popcorn ceiling missing in that room as well. Needs to be freshened up. The elevator key would only work in two of the three elevators and the pool code we were given didn't work to get into the indoor pool. The employee at the front desk was not helpful for any of our issues and just kept telling me to find someone in the HOA office of the complex. We had to get the pool code from other guests.- Kathy P. from Salem, Posted: 08/26/2019
Enjoyed our stay very much. We plan on coming again.- Danny B. from Newton, Posted: 05/13/2019
Our group of 4 adults (2 couples) truly enjoyed our stay in this condo. Good condition and nice view! We had everything we needed.. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short by Hurricane Florence. :( Thanks to the rental company for the partial refund!- Anonymous from Huntington, Posted: 10/27/2018
Garden City Realty was very professional and extremely easy to work with. The unit is on the 16th floor and has unparalleled views. Just amazing. The downfall to being on the 16th floor is the elevators. They are painfully slow. Slow to arrive, slow to move and hot! The property does not have enough elevators to handle an at capacity crowd.
The unit overall was very nice. A little run down in places but all in it was nicer than expected. The laundry room had a leak in the ceiling due to the condensation from the air conditioner and the dryer is not vented outside so the room becomes very hot and damp. Garden City Realty was quick to respond when we called about the leak but it was a continuous issue. The only suggestion I would make is to upgrade the patio furniture. The patio is amazing. Breezy at night shadey during the day, could have spent my entire vacation out there and would have been happy. However the furniture is very cheap and flimsy. There are 3 white plastic chairs and that is it. An upgrade on the patio furniture would really go a long way.- Anonymous from Wethersfield, Posted: 07/23/2018
we had a great time at this condo. I will need to say that it needs some TLC some rooms had ventilation issues and the dryer does not dry clothes.- Anonymous from Kernersville, Posted: 11/01/2017
My 3 friends and I really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Gardens Resort. The accommodations were absolutely wonderful. Everything we needed was there. Would highly recommend.- Anonymous from Mooresville, Posted: 10/31/2017
Absolutely loved unit 1610 at Royal Garden Resort! Decorated exactly like a beach home should be! Great views from the balcony. Had everything we needed to cook with (even though we ate out). The rental agency was very easy to book through and very friendly and helpful at arrival and departure. Property was exactly as described. Perfect location. Close to pier and restaurants. Visited Huntington Beach Park and highly recommend. Will definitely go back to this unit!- Anonymous from Elizabethton, Posted: 10/24/2017
Beautiful balcony view, lovely, spacious condo, all the comforts of home.- Anonymous from Newark, Posted: 09/10/2017
This condo was very spacious and clean. You get the feeling that you are sitting in the ocean. Great view to watch fireworks from the piers. The only thing I didn't like was you have to use a special key to unlock the elevater door to go to the 16th floor and no one told us this when checking in so we spent some time trying to figure out how to get to the 16th floor while having our luggage. Thank god someone told us. Also I did not add linen package at first then tried to add it the next day sent numerous emails and not one person responded to me. I got the email to confirm everything the week before we left and contact Garden City Reality asked about the linen package told them I had requested it numerous times and was told I had to pay a late fee $35 now because I did not allow them time to add on the linen package. Since I contacted home away instead of garden city reality they would not wave the late fee even tho I had proof of my emails. The beds were very hard so it would help our backs to add a padded mattress pad. Over all a great condo.

Easy to check in and out.
clean,comfortable and great view!
If your a cook and plan on cooking a lot of meals bring some essentials from home tongs, cast iron pan sharp knives. This is not an issue for most but I prepare most of our meals with local seafood so I found the kitchen lacking some essentials but did not negate stars for this.
if your looking to walk on beach early morning or late in evening when high tide is in there is not any beach the ocean comes straight to the landing so check tide charts for your dates.
we saw tons of wild life from balcony bring a cheap pair of binoculars .

Had a wonderful time with the family! Great views and perfect vacation!- Courtney S. from Florence, Posted: 04/16/2017
We enjoyed our stay in this unit. Everyone at Garden City Realty was very nice and helpful.- Anonymous from Catawba, Posted: 12/23/2016
We had and excellent time. The condo was remodeled from when we were there last year. They did a great job.- Randy M. from Waterville, Posted: 09/22/2016
Condo was exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated, spacious; location is perfect for restaurants and the pier;view was beautiful; elevator key is needed for the 16th floor-mgmt staff need to explain this in detail. Would definitely stay here again- Anonymous from Newark, Posted: 09/10/2016
We absolutely loved the view from the 16th floor. The condo was very nice and clean. We would love to stay there again.- Randy M. from Waterville, Posted: 09/28/2015
Older resort but clean, nice indoor pool, family friendly area of beach community- Stephen B. from North Dinwiddie, Posted: 09/01/2014
Great vacation, room clean as always. Sliding balcony door needed fixed for second year in a row, but done promptly and well. Linen service a plus, especially fitted sheets and initial toilet paper rolls.- Jessica W. from Hedgesville, Posted: 07/23/2013
The condo is comfortable and we felt very much at home there. The kitchen was very well equipped, which is important to us because our daughter has food allergies so we cook almost every meal on vacation. We loved the Garden City Beach location. It is quieter than North Myrtle, yet about equally close to attractions such as Family Kingdom and Broadway at the Beach, and very close to the great restaurants in Murrells Inlet. We hadn't stayed at Garden City Beach before and were pleasantly surprised by just how close the ocean is to the building, especially at high tide. In Myrtle and North Myrtle, it's a long trek from the hotel down to the water; here there is a much shorter distance to carry all your stuff, yet there is plenty of beach, even at high tide. We are planning to stay in GCB from now on. Also, GCB Realty was good to deal with; they were friendly and made the check-in and check-out processes very fast and efficient.- Angela K. , Posted: 07/02/2013
Great stay!! We really lucked out this year...normally we plan this once-a-year trip well in advance but didn't think we could swing it this year. We could only do a Sunday to Sunday this time and the staff at Garden City Realty made it happen. The unit was supper clean and ready to enjoy. The indoor pool was a huge plus. We've stayed in many places over the years(25+) and like Surfside and Garden City the best.,,,PS,,,the unit needs a few more hangers and plates. Thanks again GCR, Jerry and Kathy and 3 grandkids.- Gerald N. from Hilton, Posted: 04/23/2013
Knocked out of the park with this one. Whole family loved this place. Awsome view! Nice kitchen, clean, perfect for two couples. The room is great the building is older and could use an update. There are three elivators but only one goes all the way down to the pool and beach. The pools were okey but not as clean as I would like. The parking deck is tight and a pain when you try to pass a monster truck suv because you can't. Better practice driving backwards. Will do again for sure if we go to Myrtle again.- Jonathan E. from Charlotte, Posted: 08/28/2012
We had a rocky start to our stay which could have been avoided if someone had told us about the elevator key to penthouse floor---we spent 45 min riding up and down before we were able to get to our floor the first night we arrived---after that everything
was wonderful. I would definitely go back.Also parking garage alittle funny to navigate, so parked on bottom floor and avoided any problems.- Lois S. from Pittsburgh, Posted: 09/15/2011
Couldn't see out of the bedroom window. We stayed in the same room 2 years ago and the window was the same. Also, the patio door was hard to open. Had great Internet connection. Wonderful view and great to look out and see the ocean and the fireworks at
night. The kitchen had been replaced and updated and looked really nice. All the elevators worked great and the pools were nice and clean as well.- Kristen H. from Saint Albans, Posted: 08/22/2011
only complaints were having to use a key on elevator and room wasnt cold enough for us. otherwise had a great time- Gary P. from Anderson, Posted: 08/16/2011
We have stayed in the same condo now for several years and have always rented through Garden City Realty, good rentals, great service!- Jessica W. from Hedgesville, Posted: 07/11/2011
Very nice condo, just a problem with leaky ceiling tiles and water dripping down from what I think was air conditioner unit in ceiling inside laundry room off master bedroom - reported it and hopefully it will be fixed soon. Overall, nice place to stay, but very windy way up on 16th floor, but the views of the beach and marshes were fabulous and make up for it!- Joy L. from Camillus, Posted: 04/25/2011
