I just can't wait, this will be my 6th time attending! The rooms were always clean, and comfortable. And the waterslide just made my day!... More

I was happy to read that this guest enjoys their repeated vacations with us so much that they are already booking for next year. We too look forward to welcoming you back.

We took our 3 grandgirls to the Sun Viking recently. We rented a 2 room suite with a small kitchenette, pull out sofa in the living room and 2 queen beds in the bedroom. The bedding was fresh and clean and the housekeeping service was great. We had an end unit which gave us a northern view of the beach.... More

We stayed here for the fifth year in a row and had another great vacation at the beach and the resort. Some extended family came with us this time which added to the fun. The weather cooperated which makes any beach vacation that much more enjoyable. This place is not crowded at all even when at full capacity it is... More

Once again we had a great visit at the Sun Viking. In large part, the great experience is a result of the great staff. Everyone is pleasant and helpful. This is the only place in the Daytona Beach area where my wife and I would vacation.

This hotel might be on the older side but it was better than some of the newer ones! There were activities going on during the day; scavenger hunt, bingo, sand castle building.

I've stayed many times in Daytona over the years, but this year was the first time at Sun Viking Lodge. For those that want four star treatment at a two star hotel price you need to check this hotel out.
