    This resort has some serious kid-friendly bona fides, including multi-bedroom suites, a complimentary DVD library, and a childrens program. But if you're looking for a location right on the ocean, the Marina Inn is not it. (The property does offer a free air-conditioned shuttle to a private beach, about five minutes away.) Still, this is a great place for families, with a great location far from the bustle of the Grand Strand.
