The Quiet Room at the Myrtle Beach Airport is located in baggage claim. NOTE: CALL 843-839-7372 WHEN YOU LAND TO LET THE AIRPORT KNOW YOU NEED ACCESS TO THE ROOM, AIRPORT STAFF WILL ENSURE THE ROOM IS OPEN. Although the lights are off, to conserve energy, the room is always open and lights turn on when they sense movement. This space allows a safe and fun environment for kids to decompress with a caregiver while someone retrieves the baggage and rental car. Please sign the guest roster with the date, time and number of people, your city and state would be great too. This information will help us to gather data for future efforts and supports.
