BTW - although the Motorcoach Resort is wooded, there are some sites with satellite reception. I requested and got a vacancy by the lake with good reception.

Savannah is close by and I would suggest at least a day trip to visit "Old Savannah".

If you enjoy golf, there are probably over 30 courses in the area. Sign up for GOLFNOW dot COM for great last minute deals.

cheers,
Joopy

While there, we also checked in with the folks at the RV / Marina and found that to be very nice as well. I would classify it as being not quite as "exclusive" as the MC Resort, and campfires were permitted in free standing fire pits. We would gladly stay there next visit. However, the location is not nearly as convenient to the beach side amenities and bicycling to amenities is not likely.

My guess is that you'll enjoy either place. Both places are terrific in their own way. Personally, I would probably lean towards the Motorcoach Resort simply because we much enjoyed the easy access from the resort to miles and miles of bikes paths.

I fully agree with your assessment. I have stayed at both and like you say, they each have their pluses. Would be nice if you could have a fire at the resort. It's also nice to be on the water at the marina. For bicycle convenience, no comparison with the resort winning hands down. When I go back though, I will stay at the resort simply because I loved riding my bike to the beach and then riding on the beach. Also we walked to a really nice dinner one night. Should mention though that we went to the restaurant at the marina one night for dinner and to watch the fabulous sunset over the water! You can't go wrong either way.

We really loved the resort. We drove by the marina and wasn't too impressed. Accomodations, the clubhouse, and the pool were superior at the Resort. We loved biking to and on the beach which was less than an easy mile away. We walked to Capt. Woodys and had a great Dinner. We also walked to Fat Baby's Pizza, which was real good... And we're from NY!

We loved HHI for many reasons... None of which had to do with golf! You can keep the zoo called Myrtle Beach... Way too commercial... We took a day and went to Savannah... Well worth the 45 minute drive. If you go, do a trolly tour and stop at the River Market...

Glad you enjoyed it all, StevieG. We also did the Savannah Trolly Tour and found the history fascinating and the bus stops convenient.

PS - hope you swiftly washed the salt water off the bikes... it took us one day of beach riding to figure that out

Cheers,
Joopy

The roads are paved and windy, but very maneuverable. The lots are all either stamped concrete or pavers with room for slide outs on each side, a table, chairs, etc. When we were there, there were more tag axel 40+ footers than less than 40 ft. Maybe because of the Heritage Golf tournament going on in Sea Pines.

If you prefer open field type sites with no screening from your neighbor... If you prefer satellite to cable... If you want to drive around on your golf cart... This is really not resort for you.
