I stayed at the red roof inn on Kings Highway last year. It was also my first time there. It's right down the street from the Harley dealer and just a short ride to Murells Inlet where all the bars are. I will probably stay there again this year

I will be down there from May 16 - 20. I will be staying at the north end of Myrtle (not North Myrtle) cause I have a free room. This will be my 3rd trip. I suggest staying near Sunset Beach or Murrels Inlet area. Most of the rally action is down at that end, such as SBB (Suck Bang Blow). SBB has two spots within a couple of miles from each other. Plus the Beaver Bar is across SBB Murrels. Take a day and ride up to HB Spokes and Barefoot Landing. Also, do forget to stop off at Caption Poo's. Awesome little bar. PM if you have any questions.

Good advice on the visits! Swing Bridge and Captain Poo's rocks and hit the right day and you get a free fish fry that is awesome! Me and the ol lady will be down thursday of the second weekend. We usually stay North Myrtle and hit 31 to go between All the hotspots missing Myrtle but may stay south this time. Haven't had issues in Myrtle since all the hullabulloo and i won't let anyone tell me where i'm not wanted! I still think it's a pretty good time even though its much smaller than it used to be. We'll be cozying up to a rocking chair at the Beaver or SBB to watch the goings on .

My favorite place is the Hampton Inn in Murrels Inlet. Hotel is only 3 years old. Close to the original SBB, easy access to 17 and the 31 bypass of MB. Also like the fact that there is a Carrabba's across the parking lot for drinks and food.

Unfortunately my daughter graduates from Duke the 2nd weekend, so I most likely will not be there this year. Usually go the first weekend, but the last several times I've gone then it was dead.

Just don't sleep,or eat in MB,stay South or North of MB,. You can still have fun there but the local MB police and politicians treat and look at Bikers as though they are all terrorist. Stay off the side streets,that run through neighborhoods,OBEY ALL traffic rules even the ones made up just for Bike Week. Keep in mind also MB has a noise ordinance just for motorcycles.There are many,many,great bars,grills and restaurants in the Grand strand watch out for the drunks and all the stupid people and have a blast. You can still have fun but it ain't nothing like it used to be.

Was there two years ago when they had the helmet law in Myrtle Beach, I read that that has now since been removed due to a law suit. Anyways most of the action is at Murrells Inlet. South of Myrtle Beach. Nice area and a nice ride down to Charleston South Carolina about another hour and a half south.

We're headed down the last weekend. Will be my first time there with a bike. Along with all the negative press, I've also heard a lot of good things about it, and am REALLY looking forward to it!!
