“You feel like your in the tropics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

So relaxing and customer friendly. From the owner Audrey to housekeeping and in between the friendliest most reasonable hotel? Motel? Don't really know what to call this unique establishment. You are a few steps from the Atlantic ocean. Heated outdoor pool and BBQ. Movie night and bingo. close to major attractions. No fitness center but hey, walk on the great hard sand beach. Restaurants a stones throw away

Great weekend get away.
Decided not to stay with the big chains and came upon this hotel on Trip Advisor.
Only able to stay one night, but if schedule was open would have stayed longer.
Sarah took my reservation and greeted me at the desk when we arrived (great representative for the property). The hotel decor was tropical "retro" - in a good way. My wife and I loved it. We travelled with our two teenage sons who enjoyed the beachfront access and pool.

We stayed in a two bedroom oceanfront efficiency (room 45) that had ample room and two porches overlooking the ocean and pool. The room was clean and the kitchenette was well equipped with plates, cups, etc... Need to bring your own coffee and extras (but there is a coffee maker).

The hotel has several scheduled activities and we met families that had been coming to this hotel for years. It's about 2-3 miles to the main boardwalk (that's not what we came for).

Everyone on the staff we met, went out of there way to make our experience enjoyable. We would definetly come back again.

Room Tip: Room 45 was great

Had a great stay with the wife & 5 boys this weekend. Trust me when I say there is nothing like the Beach House at Tropical Manor. From the Flamingo with shades & a sombero that greets you, to the bright pink "brady bunch" shag carpet, it is truly one of a kind. The beach house is perfect because you are right next to the beach, pool, shuffle board, etc. but it has a very private feel with it's own driveway & patio with an awesome view. The room was very clean & fully stocked except for paper products & salt & pepper. So, bring your own paper plates, napkins, & maybe a roll of softer tp.........just saying. :) The staff was very pleasant & helpful. All in all, we had a wonderful time & plan on returning soon. Thanks!

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Audrey's Beach House with your family. We are glad that you appreciated the fun, special touches that make our Beach House special. We chose lots of bright tropical colors and furnishings to give Audrey's Beach House a cheerful and fun look and feel. Some wonderful and talented artists stay in Audrey's Beach House each winter and have created several beautiful paintings which decorate our Beach House. We hope that you will be able to stay at Audrey's Beach House longer during your next visit. A large set of dishes, pots and pans, silverware, cooking utensils, and a dishwasher are provided in the kitchen. We are glad that you enjoyed the beautiful direct ocean front views from Audrey's Beach House, our oceanfront pool and shuffleboard court ,and the friendly service we provided. We hope to welcome your family back to the Tropical Manor and Audrey's Beach House for many years to come.

I've stayed at a lot of places all over the world and have not experienced a better place to play.e ocean.The staff go out of their way to make sure you feel at home. Each and every room has a view of the ocean no matter the location. It is easy to walk to restaurants, shops and of course the beach. I will be back to visit for many years to come.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view of the ocean.

I've been coming here w my family every year since I was 9. I'm going to be 32 and am now bringing my kids. The walk to the beach is short and it's so peaceful and quiet here . The room we like the best is 42 and it's ocean front 2 bedroom . It's a nice quaint room but could use just some newer appliances, television and sofa. Aside from that it's still nice just getting dated. I'm a clean freak so I always check out cleanliness as soon as we check in. I did end up washing the blankets because they had syrup on them and hadn't been washed so that kinda sucked but the bathroom and kitchen were very clean. Normally the front desk people are friendly and helpful but I thi we caught her on a bad day because she was pretty short with us . We still love it here though and plan to continue coming.

We are extremely pleased to have such loyal guests and appreciate that you have chosen to stay at the Tropical Manor each year since you were a young child. We greatly value your comments and assure you that we will very conscientiously address them. 2 Bedroom Oceanfront Suite #41 is one of our most popular guestrooms because of its large size , private oceanfront patio, and great location on the first floor, just steps to our pool area. We upgrade a certain number of guestrooms each year with new appliances, televisions, and sofas. All of the new televisions we purchase our flat screen tv's, and all of our Suites feature new televisions with DVD players in each bedroom. Suite #41 is scheduled to receive new furnishings this year, including a new queen sleeper sofa in the living room. All of our blankets are washed very frequently on a regular basis and when we detect any sign of use. We apologize that the blankets in your room did not meet our standards of absolute cleanliness. We are glad that the bathroom and kitchen were very clean. We wholeheartedly apologize that you were not greeted with exceptional warmth and enthusiasm when you checked in. Friendliness, genuine concern,and sincere appreciation for each of our guests is what our business is based upon. We strive to provide you our very best service and accommodations during each and every visit to the Tropical Manor. Please know that your satisfaction and loyalty are supremely important to us and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Tropical Manor for many years to come.

What a classic! Audrey's Tropical Manor wouldn't be out of place in Palm Springs, it's like stepping back in time and it's oh so charming. We stayed 3 nights in a garden cottage and loved it. We had a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and lounge room. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to self-cater to save costs. The location is great, just steps from the beach and the pool also is on the beach side. The hotel also has laundry facilitates, washing machines and dryers as well as outdoor clothes lines so after a couple of weeks backpacking through Central America this was perfect. If you're after a budget option that's super clean in the perfect location then this is it. We wish we could have stayed longer, Daytona is a fun place without the wannabes you get in Miami and Ft Lauderdale. Thanks Audrey!

Thank you so much for your delightful comments. We try very hard to create the essence of a special time and place at the Tropical Manor with unique architecture and artistic, colorful special touches. Our Charming Garden View Cottages are my absolutely most favorite rooms. They are cozy, cute, and comfortable, and just the right size for a couple or a small family. We are very pleased that you found all the necessities and amenities you needed at the Tropical Manor, including the money-saving full kitchen in your room and our handy laundry area, after backpacking for several weeks through Central America. It is exciting for us that you chose the Tropical Manor to be part of your travel adventure. We hope to welcome you back for many years to come. Warmest wishes from all of us at the Tropical Manor.
