My friends and I stayed there for two nights. I wanted to leave the first night and if it had not been for my two friends I would have. The room smelt like a wet dog and everything in the room smelled. When I went to take a shower I wore my flip flops. The shower overflowed because the drain... More

This is an older motel but it is right on the beach and has a great swimming pool. Plenty of free parking and nice rooms. The restaurant is called the Daytona Diner and is EXCELLENT. I am local, And love eating there. The food is affordable and consistently great all the time with friendly service.

Enjoyed some great days here, quick access to the beach from the private pool. Not too far from the boardwalk and other places in Daytona. Would stay again. Facilities are clean and staff were all happy to help. We stayed over Labour Day weekend and the place put on a free BBQ which was a nice touch.

This place was awesome we stayed for a month, the view from the room was great and the pool and viewing area were also enjoyable. They also have a restaurant attached to the lobby. We only had breakfast there and we would refer it to anyone we know. We read about no Internet service, we had no problem with it... More

people who work there were very nice but room is not clean at all. So many roaches and smells. Place has internet but never works. I complained about it but they never even try to fix, which is why I decided to write comment here. A lot of people had same problem.

We arrived here after leaving the noisiest place in Daytona. The building is older however our room was clean and roomy. Everyone was friendly. Privately owned - no maid service or fresh towels. I suppose if we went to the front desk they would have accommodated. Laundry onsite cheap. No spa but a fitness room w/alot of equipment. We were... More

Phenomenal place to stay! Price can't be beat and neither can location. Why stay in a noisy hotel when you can stay at Castaways-a place good people call home year round? In Daytona, the Shores is the quiet area to stay in and Castaways RULES!

This is the second time we've stayed in the Penthouse suite at the Castaways. Love the suite but the resort itself is definitely showing some wear. This visit we found that the spa has been removed and the nightclub/restaurant, Mangos is closed down. One of the elevators is out of service and the other is pretty slow. Another drawback...the halls... More

I must have been at a different Condo from a lot of the other "posters". As stated, the rooms are individually owned, so quality can vary. A lot of the rooms have totally absentee owners, so they are reluctant to do due diligence on the standards of their rooms. I guess if you have some slovenly types in before you,... More
