We visited last week (the later part of August) so it was a very rainy time for Florida. All of the doors to the rooms are somewhat exposed to the elements. The floors leading to the rooms and elevators are very very slick when wet. We also had a large puddle of water in front of our door for quite... More

I was surprised to read your comments regarding our employees, who are some of the best as reported by the other reviews. We love having children at the hotel even when they sometimes get cranky. I have spoken with my staff and can find no record of this incident and take such matters seriously. Kindly contact me directly to discuss. More

This is a great hotel located in the more quiet area of Daytona Beach Shores. All rooms are oceanfront so not a bad room anywhere. Easy access to the beautiful beach.

What a wonderful trip we had. The room (and all rooms) have a fantastic ocean view and no matter what floor - you hear the crashing waves. Lily at the Front desk was courteous and helpful with our questions and suggestions. GM Joyce could not have been more accommodating. And Fantastic Cinnamon rolls. We'll be back.
