hotel BLUE is central to everything in Myrtle Beach. Its perfect location means it's about a mile away from the SkyWheel. This contemporary hotel will feel more like a Vegas or Miami Beach hotel than a beachside retreat. Its fabulous oceanfront pool has the first swim-up pool bar in the state of South Carolina, so there is no need to even get out of the pool or the sun to grab a drink!

hotel BLUE guests also have exclusive access to the amenities at sister resort, Captain's Quarters, just 2 buildings away! Take a stroll down to the beach and enjoy all that Captain's Quarters has to offer as well, including Level 6 Entertainment Center. Read on to learn more!

Location: 5308 North Ocean Blvd - near Golden Mile oceanfront exercise trail

Top Feature: Get in your workout in the on-site gym, then steam away toxins in the on-site sauna!

The Golden Mile is one of the most coveted areas of Myrtle Beach - it is residential, and much quieter than the more popular end of central Myrtle Beach. Along this stretch of quiet beachside tranquility is the Golden Mile oceanfront exercise trail. Walk the pavement alongside the beach and find public exercise equipment along the way - the perfect way to energize each morning! 

Beach Colony, located on the Golden Mile, has everything you could want in a resort – from an oceanfront location to plenty of water features. It is also one of the only resorts in Myrtle Beach to offer guest access to an on-site racquetball court and sauna! Guests are hard-pressed to find a reason to leave this property.
