Stayed here both in August 2009 and then in August/September 2010. It is a great value hotel in Daytona Beach Shores (different from Daytona Beach). It is farther south and away from the crowded main beach and boardwalk area. I really like staying in DBS as opposed to DB because it is much more quiet. The rooms were adequate and there was everything that I needed, including a laundry area. Continental breakfast was included: cereal, bagels, pastries, toast, yogurt, and homemade donuts, along with coffee, milk, and juices. There are 2 pools, which was nice because if one was packed the other was available. My vacation is 2009 went without a hitch and never had a problem. It was quiet and relazing. The views were amazing!
I stayed over Labor Day weekend this year (2010) and I know I will never stay the same weekend again. There was one family that rented out the entire hotel for a reunion except for a few rooms (mine, the one next to mine, and a few others). They were complete pigs! They threw their garbage everywhere. On the grounds, in the pools, on the beach, everywhere they were there was garbage (including used condoms). They blasted music all day/night. We went to complain at the desk several times, but they refused to do anything about it. There are hours for the pools that stated they were to be used from 6a-11p, but they used until all hours of the night making noise and screaming. Security just stood there and watched- I honestly believe that he was afraid. After the family left the hotel went back to being immacualtely clean and quite- just like the previous year.
I left something in my room and they even mailed it back to me (granted, it took them 2.5 months to mail it, but I did get it back). All in all it's a quite, clean, beach motel and I will stay here again.. Just not during Labor Day weekend.
