“Will Stay Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I stayed with the same group that complained earlier. The person who stayed in this room is a teenager who just turned of age and ignorant in the ways of the tourism world. I have stayed here before and will stay here again. The rest of our party was completely happy with the stay. It is on the beach. It is clean. Does sand get in your sheets? Of course. Your on the beach. You track it in. It is clean. It is cheap. This guest who complained broke the key off in their door the first time they tried to unlock it. The owners of the hotel got them a new lock on the door. No one else in our group broke their key off. They complained the whole time about the room and their company - the rest of the party who so nicely made arrangements for them to come on this vacation. NEVER AGAIN. I went out of my way to get them Disney tickets and did not even get a thank you for it if that tells you what type of guests this young couple was. The hotel gave us a great deal and changed the rooms for this couple when they complained. We had a great time. I would highly recommend this room for others to stay in. I never had a problem here now or before and doubt I would ever have a problem here in the future. There's always one person in the bunch you can't please no matter what. Being in the group that gave this previous bad review I say we had that one person in our party.

During our week stay at Daytona Shores Inn and Suites the word that would best describe it would be dissapointing. This dissapointment is not in the quality of the room as much as it is in the customer service we recieved. Going into around day 2 of our stay we began to have many problems with our room 107. The lock on our door broke(which is not the hotels fault) for starters. Then going to sleep for the first night we discovered there was sand in our sheets, and that the headboard was very loose. Infact the sand was not any problem compared to the head board. Anytime we turned over or moved slightly in the bed it would be very loud, and wake you up. But, we slept through the night ignoring these things. The straw that broke the camels back was the fact that our toilet clogged up multiple times. We decided instead of letting these things ruin our stay we would just request a room change. Going into this we did not think it would be any problem, but sadly we were incorrect. The owner we confronted was Kim, and she was very very rude to us. She argued with us about the room (107) having no problems before, and that it was us. She also refused to giving us a different room. Finally, though after argueing she finally gave us a different room. And after the switch the room gave us no problems, besides there being sand in these sheets also. What turned us off the most about the hotel was not the rooms, but the service we recieved. The way the owner acted was very unprofessional, and upset us quite a bit. Later she did apologize and say the room did have plumbing problems. Also later she also said the reason she was rude was because she just quit smoking, but this is no excuse for her behaivor. The last thing I have to say about this hotel is that me and my family will not be back.

The persons in room 107 was part of a group that reserved 3 rooms. They broke the key in the lock the first night.We changed the lock as soon as they told us about it. They were never happy after that. My name is Richard. The next morning I gave them another room, For the rest of the week I did most of the interaction with this group. Other than the teenagers that were in 107 everyone else was happy and will return. Check out our other reviews. Thank you Richard and Kimberly.

SUPER NICE AMERICAN OWNERS
SUPER CLEAN ROOMS
SUPER QUIET AT NIGHT
SUPER NICE LANDSCAPING AND MEGA CLEAN!
ALLOWS DOGS!
WELL WORTH THE PRICE!
You can really tell the owners have a lot of pride in their little place on the beach and we will without a doubt be going back this summer!

My husband and I have never stayed in one of the smaller hotel/motels in Florida, always opting for one of the larger hotels with the thinking they would be nicer. Being that we were on a tight budget and just wanted a quick weekend getaway, we chose the Daytona Shores Inn & Suites based on the price and all the positive reviews. We were not disappointed!

My husband, myself and our medium sized dog checked in on Saturday afternoon and met Richard who was at the front desk. SUPER friendly fella! We stayed in the beach front room which had a king size bed, fold out couch and kitchenette. The room was SUPER clean upon our arrival. Landscaping was beautifully done and well maintained. Pool area was also spotless and had plenty of nice clean lounge chairs. There were several areas with tables and chairs about that you could eat outside at and a really nice charcoal grill if you wanted to use it.

Parking is right along the side of the Inn and also happens to be one of the drives to access the beach. We were given a pass for parking and had no problem finding a spot as we came and went.

At checkout we met Kim, who just like Richard, was very friendly. I love it when the people at the front desk are just regular folks, not all stuffy with a fake smile plastered on their faces like at so many of the bigger places! She was truely super cool to talk to! We talked a bit about our stay, how much we enjoyed it and told her we would DEFINITELY be back! THIS is our new spot in Daytona! Thank you Richard and Kim for making a quick getaway so nice!

My Family and I stayed here last week! It was so nice to stay at a place where you feel welcomed. I Loved that there was a brand new charcoal grill, that we used every night! Pool is Great! We loved the Jets they felt so good after a long day around Daytona! They also rewired the cable so we had more channels. We were not far from anything! A 7/11 across the street! Walmart/Dollar store is 10 mins away! We didn't drive on the beach well because we were right on the Beach! We will be back and I have told friends about the Place!

My husband, my daughter, our little dog, and myself stayed here May 4th through the 10th. My 1st impression was how clean the rooms were. So glad we chose to stay here. The staff was very nice and helpful. The view was great, and the landscaping was wonderful. We had a great time. The beach was just steps from our room. We left our beach chairs out on the patio and our towels, and nothing was ever bothered. Safe area. We will be going to this motel for many years to come. Thanks again to Kim and Richard, we truly appreciate your hospitality.
