“Nice location, but the POOL!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We stayed here July 26 -29 2012. The hotel is clean and in good shape. But the pool was filthy the entire time. It was extremely cloudy and had many water bugs. You could not see the bottom of the pool and I would say it was full of bacteria. One of the owners of a unit, (this is a condo hotel) told me that it has had a continuous problem with keeping the pool clean and clear this summer. The pool had no water pressure coming from the jets from the pool pump and they did not give it professional regular maintenance during my stay. If you love a beach front pool at your resort check the pool before checking in! Also the hot tub was broken, it was hot but had no jets working.

Room Tip: Check your room out first since they are all privately owned and each are decorated with the owners...

My dad and I went to Daytona Beach for the 2012 Bike Week festivities during Spring Break, and I honestly did not have high expectations. To my surprise, this hotel was really nice! I loved the location & the price tag. It's great access to the Beach, Main St is in walking distance, and it's easy to hop on International Speedway Boulevard to go to the races. We were impressed with how clean the place was, the maid service was exceptional in stocking clean towels and everything. Parking was okay, there was only one night-close to midnight-where we took the last car space. There's easy access to the beach and there's a tiki bar out back. The pool out back is for residents only, so it was never full. It was super clean too. The tiki bar had a DJ too, which was great entertainment. The rooms are not sound proof, but I don't mind hearing a few motorcycles going down A1. I'd stay there again for sure!

Overall, this place was a great value with a few good reason to return! This hotel does it's very best to be current & fun. We booked our rooms directly with the hotel. Check-in was quick & easy. The only downfall are the dated rooms. We stayed here with another couple, each having an ocean view king room - one room was nicely appointed, the other, not so much - the bed didn't have a headboard. Both rooms did have basic kitchen items. I believe that since these rooms are individually owned, there should be standards that are maintained for all rooms. Housekeeping left a little to be desired. The best parts of this hotel are the Oasis Tiki Bar with a restaurant, a DJ that starts at 1 p.m. and the oceanfront location! These are the reasons are why we will stay here again. It's also walking distance to many bars & restaurants. I would not recommend this place for families with small children. Overall, we liked this place and what it had to offer.

We stayed at the beautiful Fountain Resort for the first time and really liked the property. The location was very convenient. The room was very clean and was much bigger than I had expected. I liked the free Internet access. The staff at the front desk was very nice as well as housekeeping. I was also so happy with the pool side bar. The prices and food was good but what I am so pleased with is the DJ. TLB Productions was there and was so entertaining. I just want to express how good of a job he did and played great music as well. He was full of energy. I can t wait to come back!!!

We were in Daytona the during Bike Week (not as a biker, but a spectator) and wanted a room close to Main Street. We were surprised that Fountain Beach had rooms available. That should have aroused our suspicions. The lobby is deceiving...large, nicely furnished. The small old elevator should have also been a clue, but we REALLY wanted to be in town and on the beach.
The room location was okay. Small patio that if you look to the right you could see the beach. But the room itself was dark...no lights above, beside or anywhere near the beds. The plumbing was poor. The vanity sink wouldn't drain. Had a hard time flushing the toilet. No ice machine on my floor so I went down to the lobby to buy water. Pop machine wouldn't take my dollar bill. I was told I needed to use quarters. Got my quarters but no money. THEN I was told, Oh, yeah, it's out of water!
The whole place is just rundown and in desperate need of some TLC.

Room Tip: Stay at another property!

Well we arrived for bike week from the UK raring to go, checked in no problem and the blonde girl on the front desk was LOVELY! We stayed in 416 which was fine, king size bed but it was mega noisey turning over at night, the room was dated but clean bathroom was small, TV was bulky but overall great for what we wanted. Only issue we had was the balcony door, it wouldnt lock properley! as the room was not secure we decided we needed saftey deposit box - they are in the rooms but when we went to get key and report door not locking we were told the ones in the rooms dont work but we have a secure facility behind the desk which we could use. We used it for out passports only, we lost the key and they wanted 100 dollars to open the box, it was like a mini filing cabinet!

Any how we never paid it and got them back with a few grunts from the management, they reckon no one ever lost a key before? and they had no master! who knows.

The guys that i dealt with behind the desk wernt overly friendly, asked for change for quaters one day to use the washing machine was told they had none and he walked off!

On the plus side the location of this place is great, 3 blocks from main street, pool stairs lead down to the beach, friendly Tiki bar pool etc. I would go back there if i got it for a good price again.

Room Tip: City view - faces another hotel, can see pool on the right or road on the left if you look.
