A small Myrtle Beach hotel is getting a big overhaul with the help of a popular Travel Channel show.

“Hotel Impossible,” which features “hotel fixer” Anthony Melchiorri getting struggling hotels back on track, will film early next year at the Carnival Motor Inn on Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach.

The Myrtle Beach episode is expected to air during the summer, though a specific date hasn’t been set, said Erin Styles, a spokeswoman for the Travel Channel.
George Brickwedde, who bought the 24-room property on the oceanfront near 25th Avenue North in 2012, said the national TV exposure and advice from experts could help the family owned and operated hotel, which had a slow summer.

“They come in – mostly smaller individually owned properties – evaluate it, help you, give you suggestions,” he said. “Hopefully it will help us some.”

This will be the first time “Hotel Impossible” has filmed along the Grand Strand. The show started eyeing Myrtle Beach after Brickwedde completed a questionnaire for the show.
“They said they had never done a hotel in Myrtle Beach and were interested,” he said.

The episode featuring Myrtle Beach will be part of the fourth season of “Hotel Impossible,” which has 13 episodes and kicks off next month.

“The family is hoping they can make it through the winter and are determined to keep the Carnival Inn alive,” according to a “backstory” about the planned episode from the Travel Channel.

Very interesting and I look forward to watching this. Hopefully when the date is released, you or someone else can update this chain so we know about it.

I have never watched this show, but have watched other ones along the same lines (Restaurant impossible etc...) so I would be interested in seeing the hotel one too.

Hopefully they can help this hotel, you hate to see anyone struggle or go out of business.

Thanks!
