Chosen for good WiFi (which did not disappoint), I was pleasantly surprised by the efforts and expense Sun Viking invests in safety, cleanliness, and updated decor. The bathroom and windows were cleaner than mine at home! This was our first trip but we will be back. Cheaper and much better WiFi than Perry's and faster elevator, quieter, and infinitely less...

We have been staying at the Sun Viking almost every year since the late 80's. We find that it is acceptable for our needs during our spring break trips. We stayed at other hotels prior to our first stay at the Sun Viking but found them to be mostly unacceptable. We come back because of the BEACH. We love the... More

The Sun Viking is one of our favorite hotels to go to when we come down to Daytona Beach, we have stayed numerous times and have been incredibly satisfied with our experiences each time we've stayed! The rooms and bathroom are very clean, the customer service is always helpful, and we always book in the rooms with the balconies, so... More

It was a pleasure to read this review from a returning guest. It is certainly a compliment when a guest returns to our hotel, so it is a very nice surprise to get such nice comments. Many of our guests request rooms that directly face the beach so they can enjoy seeing the ocean and all the activities on the... More

The room we had was a decent size but the carpet felt really gross on bare feet. Overall a decent place to stay. The alarm went off in the room at midnight our first night there, that was kind of annoying. Talking with Larry who works by the pool was really nice.

Thank you for your comments in this review. I apologize if you had a problem with the carpet in your room. Our carpets are commercial grade carpets, designed to take heavy traffic. Some people feel they are not as soft as they are used to. All carpets are cleaned on a regular basis, but with most rooms having kitchens, sometimes... More

Take the rating in context to the type of place it is. This is a very small and older location. However it has some really nice touches that make it stand out and it just seems unfair to rank it lower based on the quality of management we experienced over most places. We opted for an oceanside efficiency with kitchette.... More

Thank you for your review. It was nice to read you enjoyed a speedy check-in and the gift beach towel and coupons given to you when you arrived. Although we have a 2-story building and an 8-story high-rise, only the high-rise offers elevators. You mentioned that you normally stay in a condo, so I can understand how our hotel rooms... More

We do offer an oceanfront condo in Daytona Beach Shores, which is very popular. However, your review title is “Sanibel Siesta” so I am not sure this review is for us; there is a Sanibel Island in Florida. The guest in our condo during February is from a different state. We are glad you enjoyed your time in Florida. More

This is the second time that we chose to spend our vacation time at the Sun Viking. There are so many wonderful things to point about this hotel. The staff is extremely helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised by what a great place this was! The weather was not great but I did not stop my son from using the indoor and outdoor heated pool! Great little cafe for breakfast/lunch at very reasonable prices. We will stay here again :)

It is so nice to read that this family was “pleasantly surprised” with our hotel and that they enjoyed our pools even with a bit of bad weather. We have so many wonderful families that stay with us, many of which are 3rd and even 4th generations. Our goal, is for our guests to create their own family memories which... More

Stayed for two days and just walked in without a reservation. We were happy to get a nice room, clean, comfortable. But best of all, it's right on the ocean. So easy to just walk out the room and enjoy the beach. Also, so nice to have an indoor pool as well as an outdoor one. We liked the snack... More
