“Spent the entire week at this resort. Very near excellent restaurants, in close proximity to Myrtle Beach without the crowds, and of course, the golf course is right on the property. The accommodations were clean and quiet, the amenities on the property good. We will definitely go back to Ellington in the future!” - User CRW718, Tripadvisor
