We stayed here on a race weekend, so prices were about 30% of the rate of other hotels and we thought we would give it a try. From the outside it doesn't look very good. We were in the "older" of 3 buildings, but the room inside was pleasantly remodeled. The room was clean, with a large king bed, wi-fi,... More

This was the first time we stayed here. We came for the weekend, it was our youngest daughters 12th birthday. We had an amazing time!!!! We have definitely found our new home away from home. It was very low key & a good family place. Rooms were very clean & the staff was nice. We stayed on the 3rd floor... More

Window on first floor does not lock, no security feeling there!. Dirty floors, rusty appliances, chairs outside need to be power washed, fixed and painted. On the worse is the RAT we saw and told guy at front desk, stated they come from next door and he would let pest control know. We saw pest control and they had no... More

amazing view in the oceanfront room! The room was on the second floor and was clean and fairly big, with full size fridge, microwave and mini stove. The pool area needs to be updated, the location is perfect but you do need a car if you want to go to the daytona beach boardwalk which is very fun.

We paid for four nights and planned on staying. Until we got there. We decided to tough it out and try to stay out on the beach as much as possible. This is anything but a resort. Very dated and funky smelling bedding that wasn't cleaned once while we were there. There were a dirty pan in the oven when... More

Stayed here for three nights with three of my friends. We had an oceanfront room with a balcony and kitchen. We arrived early and the owners let us check in early. Which was greatly appreciated after driving all night. The view from our balcony was great, and the beach was right there. The pool was clean, but some of the... More

We arrived to find that our room had a non-working air conditioner, and it was musty. We told the clerk Terry who was a very sweet lady and she put us in another room for the night while our a.c. would get repaired or they would move us to another room. So we return the next morning and there is... More

Now being refurbished. Our room is one of the newer renovations. There are a few things that can still be improved on like bedding and lighting. But I can still see where there will be much better accommodations when complete.
