When the Yachtsman first opened, it was THE hotel to go to in Myrtle Beach if you wanted to impress or be impressed.
Now that MB is condo-central and is all built up, I don't know if the Yachtsman has the same panache it used to in years gone by, but it's a decent hotel that's right on the beach and you get what you pay for---which is, upper class, high end hotelling.
As always, the cheaper rooms face away from the water, but go during off-season (October-March) and you can get an oceanfront room for really cheap---of course, it'll be too cold to swim, but who cares? It's the YACHTSMAN!!!
