My brother and I will be attending 2021 World Am for the first time this year and was wondering best way to lock in hotel reservation and if there are special rates for tournament participants?

Hotels and car prices are crazy right now..the world am Rate for the Hilton doubletree is a pretty good rate..March 30, 2021 at 10:46 am #48926Tommy BriggsBlocked
David I recommend you check out VRBO, for a week long stay with the added convenience of a kitchen I have found it is a better value and almost always the same price as a hotel would cost or even a little less.March 30, 2021 at 4:36 pm #48933adam petersonParticipant
Those are same if not more money right now..crazy.March 30, 2021 at 4:53 pm #48934Tommy BriggsBlocked
Adam for Q School I stayed at a “vacation resort”, Harbour Lights resort. It is a time share type hotel/condo, with a full kitchen, two separate bedrooms each with a bathroom. Four nights $448. I was so impressed I tried to book it for the WA, they told me they were sold out. I spoke with the manager and pleaded for a room, she told me there was nothing she could do. I went on VRBO and guess what I found, Harbour Lights, same type of room, for seven nights, $552.00, I was so excited I booked it immediately.
I had been looking at VRBO since last year’s WA hoping to find a room, and sure enough as you said the prices had all gone up considerably, so you can imagine how happy I was to find the Harbour Lights room for less per night than I paid for the same room for Q School.
The only thing Myrtle Beach has more of than golf courses is condos, so I do expect some rooms to open up and prices to come down a little once people realize they are not going to get rich renting their condo for one week in August.March 30, 2021 at 10:57 pm #48935Rick KimbrellParticipant
You can check out World Am rates at the link above.
We booked the Doubletree again this year.

I found a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit at Myrtlewood for $600 US. We used to stay at Barefoot for $600 Canadian. It was a Canadian who owned it and gave us a great deal. He has since sold it so I went on a search and found the unit at Myrtlewood. I will probably book it year after year now.April 12, 2021 at 8:39 pm #48972William MorrisonParticipant
I got a good deal for a 2 bed room with a full kitchen at the Caravelle. 5 nights for $365.May 6, 2021 at 3:55 pm #49053Terry CorneliusParticipant
If you don’t mind paying a little extra compared to suggestions, I have always liked to book in oceanfront high rises from the northern end of Myrtle Beach, up to North Myrtle Beach. It’s nice to be able to go walk in the water any time you like, as late as you like. Places with a little lower price include Prince Resort in North Myrtle and Caravelle or Caribbean in Myrtle Beach. Some of these places do feature a World Am rate on the Accommodations tab of the Already Registered tab. I booked the Avista this year, as I’ve wanted to check it out for a few years. Kinda pricey. especially since I need a 3BR condo for my group. But, a poolside bar is a must for my wife, and 3 bathrooms in the 3 BR condo is a very nice plus.May 10, 2021 at 3:44 pm #49072William ZeoliParticipant
Hi David- It’s good to know that you are only going with your brother, because this is a good deal for those who are a bit adventurous. Each and every year I go to the World Am I discover how many vacancies there are all along the beach in Myrtle. I’m quite serious here. Two years ago I arrived day early, found a wonderful unit at a big time beach hotel and paid under $100. Two other guys I met there paid about 50% of the listed price for a four day trip. I realize it is a bit scary to go with no reservations, but understand the date. It is the quietest week of the season in MB. Last week in August with the upcoming Labor Day weekend crowd not yet in place. I am coming with 11 other guys and we have condos, but if I were with just one other guy you can be sure that is the way I would go. No, the beachfront hotels do not advertise cheap rates that week, but sign after sign says “Vacancies” and the pricing reflects it. Just a suggestion.May 11, 2021 at 8:43 am #49074Harry (The Hack) RadleyParticipant

At the moment I am a single and would be interested if you only need one. I assume you mean in the Ocean Lakes campground area. I keep my eye on this board so if you can’t find two guys, just leave another post sometime in the future. Thanks.May 16, 2021 at 2:42 pm #49092Stan MahaffeyParticipant

There is a pool & jacuzzi on site as well. The cost is $475 for 8 nights (Friday 27 Aug to Sat 4 Sep).Perfect for two people to share and beats a hotel room!
