My room was spacious, clean & updated. I overlooked the Atlantic Ocean daily. What a wonderful place to spend some time. I opted for a kitchen which came in very handy not to mention savings on food expenditures. I would return my next visit to the Daytona Beach area

Dirty stained bathrooms and they had to shut our balcony and we couldn't go outside because of construction I had to pay extra to get the balcony and now I can't even use it, so I asked if I could gety money back for the balcony...

We stayed five nights during the Daytona 500. I understood it was an old-school motel, and everything was jacked up during the race. So our expectations were pretty low, yet we were underwhelmed. The Good The location! Right right on the beach. We paid extra for ocean front, thank goodness! (The parking lot view rooms looked so super sad). The... More

This was an OK motel. Very good location, right on the beach. Back side has ocean views and balconies which is cool. Some have kitchenettes as well. However, it is old. Tile floors area always a bad sign. Marginal internet access as well (evidently depending on how many other people were using it at any given moment). They did offer... More

Hotel is old, lighting is bad, rooms are dirty. Fortunately, we did have direct access to the beach. Walls are extremely thin. We could hear everything in the room next to us. This Included screaming parents at 2am. Asked for extended checkout time due to afternoon commitment. Was told no, we are oversold. However, found out later there were vacancies.... More

It's not a 5 star hotel. It's a lodge with a few amenities. If you're looking to be entertained, it's not going to happen here. However, if you're looking for a convenient place with a beachfront balcony just steps away from a flawless beach. Grab a book or fishing pole. This is the place. The view is over the top.

Title says it all! Beds clean comfortable but rooms all need a good scrubbing. Place has gone downhill since our last visit when it was under ownership of Gilmore family. So sorry, was such a family place! Won't be back.
