Now has new owners and managers and it is getting BETTER! Have stayed here a few years in a row, it is a nice little place accross from the beach and close to everything! It needs a little TLC, but I think the new manager will get things done! can't wait to come back next year!!

I didn't listen to my instincts I went ahead and proceeded to rent a room for my family . the two lady's in the front desk area... More

We stayed at this motel because other motels in the area were full. We paid for 4 nights to assure a room while we were in town. The first night the police arrived to settle a dispute between a couple in one room. The next night the couple next door were so loud that we could not sleep. The walls... More

I stayed at famous shores in jan, for 1.5 weeks. When we packed up and left, I somehow left my wallet in the bathroom. I didn't notice until we stopped for gas. 2 states later. I did not know where I left it. When I arrived home in California, there was a box on my front porch. The hotel sent... More

I was in Ponce Inlet for a fishing trip. This was the only motel I could find with a kitchen, stove and refrigerator. It also had a living room, and a separate bedroom. The manager Rosa was great. The pool was nice, but was a little over crowded.

My girlfriends and I stayed at the famous shores for spring break. The manager Rosa was awesome. She knew were everything was, and got us in VIP to Razzels night club. Everyone was nice there, and we all felt safe. They gave me free toothpaste, toothbrush and deoderent every time they cleaned the room.

I love this place! I needed a weekend by the beach to unwind and found the perfect spot. This place is right across from the beach. Very affordable and is small and charming. The staff were attentive and friendly. I will definitely be back!

Great view, and a huge improvement from when I stayed there last summer. The staff was great, I'd definitely recommend this place. The room & bathroom were really clean. I travel alone and I felt very safe, great value for your money.

This small hotel is in a great location just across the road from the beach, squeezed between all the new high-rise buildings. We couldn't understand why whoever had painted the walls had also painted the edge of the carpet but the room was fine and the Wi-FI worked. Good value.

I am a world traveler and a Daytona native. I have no illusions about quality of hospitality properties. Property needs some work, which it seems is underway. The manager is awesome. You get what you pay for, and this place is cheap, but it Rebecca, the manager (not the yahoos that they got rid of during my stay) is really... More

Thank you so much for your comment. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that I was able to help see to that. We are under renovations here, so we are not the most beautiful motel, but we are in the most beautiful place. My goal here is to give a little happiness to others... More
