We stayed in the original section of the hotel. The smell in the room was awful. We were very naive and thought it was just cleaner they had used and it would air out. Couple days of keeping the balcony door open and it was as bad or worse. My friend coughed all night and two days after leaving. We mentioned it to the manager and she said she had never heard of such a complaint even though half the rooms in our section had their balcony doors open for the same reason and complaints are all over the Internet about the problem. The noise level was worse than the smell so we did not see any point in switching rooms. There were many, many teenaged kids unsupervised and roaming the property, pushing all of the buttons in the elevator due to the hotel being advertised as a Christian conference center.
I've stayed in run down cheap hotels in Daytona Beach before but none as unpleasant as this one.
