Old Myrtle Beach Hotels/Models

Someone from SC sent this to me and I thought I would share. I grew up in the area and remember so many of these places. Maybe others of you remember them too. The music is great--old "shag" music.

I think the Gay Dolphin is still around. I was a grill man at The Pavilion in '58 when the seafood platter at the Inlet Kitchen was $1.75..

The title should read "Hotels/Motels"--NOT Models.

Those WERE the days, suewoo. Nothing like a night of shagging at the OD Pavilion.

My friends and I were waitresses in the summers at several of the restaurants and hotels in the area in the '50's while going to college.

I think the OD pavilion was really the "Pad". Maybe you were thinking of "Sonny's" at Cherry Grove.

Ah....the Pad. Wonderful place. But before the Pad, there was a pavilion where you could dance next to the beach. A hurricane washed it away.

The Pad. Ah memories. it's where I learned to shag. A very long time ago. To "miss grace".

Friends of ours had a house at OD/Cherry Grove right next to the first "fine" hotel built there. I can't quite call the name now. There was a real downtown then. This was in the 60's--they changed the name to NMB soon after that. It was a REAL beach then!

It was before "OD" meant overdose.

This was well before my time but it really makes me sad how great MB used to be compared to now. Thanks for posting.
I grew up enjoying MB in the 80s and 90s and it was still great then. I hate what the officials and the transplants have done to MB the past decade or more.

Oh, I miss it. Think I'll go visit my friend who still lives in "OD". But then, it's never the same.

Long story short. When DH and I were "courting" in NYC (you KNOW how long ago that is using that term!!) he was visiting his folks in NC and they were at OD. He called me from a pay phone on the square in OD to say "hello"!!! And his family had been coming to the beach--OD or Pawley's--for the 30 years before that!!
We are here now, as a matter o' fact--beautiful sunny day after a ridiculously cold one yesterday. Oysters for dinner tonight!!
