“Great Beach Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Stayed here 3 nights right after the Firecracker 400. Great location after a race since all the traffic was going the other way! Every room faces the ocean and come with a balcony with 2 chairs. Beds were comfortable, everything worked in the room, no complaints. Breakfast was nice, good variety, the lady who took care of the breakfast was extremely pleasant and helpful. Pancake maker is a plus! Pool was warm and clean with ample chairs and umbrellas. My only criticism is that it appeared that the locals knew the hotel...they parked on the beach and then used the hotel restrooms and pool. I saw this on two different days with different people. It did not affect my stay or my enjoyment of the hotel and amenities so I am still happy to give this hotel a top rating.

Room Tip: We had a center room, which was nice, it looks like a room on either end was a little larger.

We stayed one night at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is right on the beach. Comfortable beds, large rooms, friendly service from all workers on premises. Since it is right on the beach, expect sand here and there, in the elevators, on balconies, etc. Even though it has an outside shower, and foot spray for people to rinse off when coming off the beach, sand still gets carried into the building via beach towels, etc. It is what it is. If you want a place of relaxation that is comfortable, clean and has beautiful views, this is a place to consider even though there are lots of motels/hotels right on the beach beside it. I will be staying here on my next trip to Florida.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean.

We stayed here twice in June (for 2 nights each time). We loved the location and that is in a nicer part of town. And right across the street from Cracked Egg Diner, another favorite. The first night we were there at around 4am the fire alarm was triggered and we didn't know what to do. We were on the 6th floor and didn't see or smell smoke but there is still that what if in the back of your mind. We saw other guests going downstairs and outside so decided we probably should. Turned out to be false alarm, thankfully, but we never heard what happened. It would have been nice to know, or even an apology for the interrupted sleep, but we got nothing. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Like the pool and ocean views.

This hotel was a great choice. It is right on the beach and all rooms overlook the beach. Each room has a balconywith chairs which is nice. The staff was very friendly, the rooms are very clean and the breakfast was great. The next time I am in Daytona I plan to stay at this hotel.

I stayed at the HIE in Novemeber for business for 6 days.

The room was clean and had lots of room, good size closet, in room safe and balcony.
My room faced the ocean, so each morning I woke up to the sounds and smells of the ocean. I actually slept with my door opened.

Breakfast was included,which was great. Wonderful selections including make your own pancakes :)

Staff were amazing. Kevin,Hailey,Lily,George were all wonderful!

It was a lovely stay and I can not wait to return with my family!!

Room Tip: All rooms face ocean.

We came from South Dakota all the way to Florida. We didn't know anyone who stayed at this hotel but all five of us where amazed with our five day stay I would for sure recommend this hotel the lobby is beautiful and the room view are to die for. All the rooms are nice and clean lobby and pool included. We got to know the employee well Dee is the sweetest always was so nice to us and was more then willing to help and talk. During the morning Kevin was awesome for breakfast feeding all those people and Im pretty sure he was working everything himself. It's nice that you can swim all night as long as you keep the volume down. Daytona beach and everyone at the hoilday inn express was so great to us (lady at night was a little crabby at moments) I will always come back it was amazing besides our full body sunburns

Thank you so much for your great review of our hotel. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. It really is all about the view. One of the benifits of a smaller hotel is that we really get to know our guests. Dee and Kevin are just two of my amazing staff. And I will apologize again for the slightly crabby one at night. Hurry back, we loved having you.

Had an excellent week at the Holiday Inn Exp. in Daytona Beach shores. Hotel is in a great location in between the busy Daytona Beach and the more quiet and relaxed Ponce Inlet. You can stay here and visit both easily. Rooms were very clean, all with ocean view and a mini frig for convenience. Wifi internet was fast and breakfast was free and served with a smile every morning. Pool area is next to beach so you can sit at the pool and still watch kids on the beach if you want. It was always clean and had plenty of towels. Beach area was really nice...not too crowded and great for boggie boarding and skim boarding. My kids loved it here, you will too!.
