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

I heard that the Famous Shores Motel was under new management, which I thought was something long over due! With all of the negative reviews and a past experience that was not good, I took the chance and came back. I am so glad that I did, and every time I am in Daytona I will stay here. The new... More

First I would like to say there is a major lack of communication here. The man (mgr) on the phone who reserved my stay told me 440. I said "great". When we got there a few weeks later, there was a lady in the office who told me a discounted price of 220 because she had accidentally rented our room... More
