Roaches!! Walking into our first room, we killed six roaches in the first five minutes. Desk clerk was apologetic, gave us a different room immediately, where I only spotted one roach. Okay, it's Florida, but other hotels manage to control this problem. We forgave the one roach and stayed. Room was comfortable enough, with perfect view of the beach. You... More

We recently stayed here prior to our Disney vacation for a night! It was great. Our room was located on the top floor with excellent views of the ocean from the balcony. Only thing I did not like was that the air conditioner is very loud on the balcony when running. Nice amenities and beach access. We will stay again.

The staff was incredible, the room was extremely nice and breakfast was way above average. All of the rooms are ocean view with a balcony. New since I last stayed in a Holiday Inn Express... Pancakes at night. They were very tasty, cool new pancake making machine.

This was our second trip staying at this hotel in the last two years. We arrived in Florida a couple of hours early so I called the hotel at 2ish and was told they would call back when the room was ready even though normal check in time was 4pm. We received a call at 3 pm so that was... More

This hotel is great for spending days at the beach. The place is clean and the staff is friendly. Our room was on the 8th floor with a direct view of the Atlantic Ocean, what a great way to start the day when you look through your window! Included breakfast in the morning is a very nice addition.

We stopped on our way south to break up the trip. Wish we had planned for more nights! Great property, excellent view, and breakfast that was included offered more than we could possibly eat! Very nice staff, from front desk, to breakfast attendant, to housekeeping. The extra clean, spacious, king room had a fridge, microwave, and balcony overlooking beautiful Daytona... More

Just a little dated....but WOW what a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. Well worth the points we spent. Elevator went right to the pool....gate....down to the beach. $25 and you had chairs and an umbrella on the beach. Staff was great. Breakfast was the same as every HIE. We will go back to this place in the future. Thanks!

I booked two handicap-accessible adjoining rooms - one with a king sized bed, the other with two queens. Lobby is attractive, staff was friendly and helpful, and the ocean view was perfect. Breakfast included hot and cold foods including a pancake machine. There were many vegetarian and dairy-free options. The omelets provided the first day were tasty, but the scrambled... More
