Grocery Stores Nearby and Cooking on Vacation In Your Hotel Kitchen
One of the great things about staying at hotel BLUE in Myrtle Beach is the in-room amenities. All units come with at least a mini fridge and microwave, but efficiencies and suites come with even more than that. They come with a kitchen!
What Your Kitchen Comes With
If you book a unit with a kitchen at hotel BLUE, you will be equipped with all you need to whip up a meal. This includes a stove/oven, full sized refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker (with coffee upon request) and limited cookware. Efficiencies have four sets of chinaware and suites have six as well as a set of pots and pans (seven pieces with lids).
These kitchen amenities will equip you with all you need to whip up some delicious meals and it gives you the option of saving money by doing some of your own vacation cooking in place of eating out for some of your meals.
For many, cooking is not something you want to do on vacation. Instead, you’d rather relax and enjoy your vacation. However, due to the price of eating out, cooking in once or twice on vacation is often a necessity for those on a budget.
Our hotel kitchens, however, do not come equipped with food; you will be on your own for that!
