I was somewhat concerned because of some of the recent reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is older, and could use some cosmetic changes but the room was clean and the a/c was cold. The staff at the desk was pleasant and helpful. The kids got free use of boogie boards for two hours and the pool area was... More

We stayed for 3 days 2 nites over the weekend in a 2nd floor suite separate from the main hotel. The room was clean and quiet with excellent Beach access. There was a Publix about 4 blocks south which we visited before check in to stock up on snacks, etc. We were allowed to check in at noon rather than... More

As far as reviews,please pay attention to all bad reviews that are already mentioned and believe! No need for me to repeat the same things. I would like to inform everyone to make sure you double check for belongings before you check out. I left my jacket hanging behind the door in the disgusting bathroom. My husband made numerous calls... More

In response to your post, I'm not sure who you spoke with but we have had your jacket and shorts at the front desk since Sunday 6/21. When you called Sunday I immediately spoke with the housekeeper and retrieved your possessions and bagged them up. We do not have a phone number for you, so I have been unable to... More

Like returning to family. Chris instantly knew us and greeted us with enthusiasm, we got a great kitchen and enjoyed being able to grill out on the beach. If you want a 5 star property...pay for it. If you want the old school, real Daytona experience with the quaintness, and super nice (mostly regulars) guests try this. It's further down... More

We go here every summer and stay for a week. It's not a fancy place, but it's clean, very family oriented, and has a wonderful friendly staff. This year we had the pleasure of meeting Chris Patterson. He goes above and beyond making the guests feel at home and made sure our stay was a pleasant one.

First off don't let the bad reviews turn you off. I personally have been staying here since I was 5 yrs old, and am now 41 yrs old. My wife and I and our girls have been staying here together for over 13 years since we got married. We travel alot for work and stay at different hotels all the... More

Rust on the inside and out. This was a nightmare... More

I would have enjoyed it more if I would have paid less! The basic room (no kitchenette, just a frozen hotel refrigerator and microwave combination) with two full beds and a ocean front view with balcony was over $150 and too much for the condition of this facility. The staff was very nice and seemed to try hard to make... More

Very friendly staff throughout our stay, we arrived 6 hours early for check in and we were able to leave our bags on site so we could go into town to look around and checkin was moved from 3pm to 12pm to accommodate us. Very nice restaurants and bars leading up into the main part of Daytona beach although that... More

We had a wonderful time, the view was amazing. The staff was friendly and attentive. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend your hotel to everyone. Between the hot tub, the beach, and the pool there was a lot of things to do. It is also located close to shops and attractions. Thank... More
