“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2011

I am very fussy about where I would stay, I checked out a lot of places before I decided to stay at the Best Western Aku Tiki Inn.
We had a wonderful time the rooms were very clean and roomy. The staff was very friendly and the traders restaurant was very good and we enjoyed the happy hour in the evening.

Room Tip: We had the ocean front room the view was breath t.

Found this great spot as a suggested place to stay for a wedding we were attending in March 2008. We enjoyed the stay so much we have returned every year in March since. We stay for a few days as part of our Florida trip before heading further south to a family condo in Boynton Beach FL were we stay. The BEST WESTERN Aku Tiki Inn is located right on the beautiful Daytona beach. It is not the most modern of facilities but it is very clean and has all the ammenities you need for a great relaxing stay. We usually stay in a suit with the balcony over looking the beautifully gardened pool area. Every day the resturant has a free happy hour from 5-6pm. All the employees are freindly and accommodating. The efficiency suites have a small kitchen area complete with refridgerator, stove, microwave, cooking and eating utensils. The rates are very reasonable and I believe they have extended stay rates. You will enjoy your stay weather it is for a few days or a few weeks.

We stayed at this hotel for my sister's wedding during the weekend of April 7-11. We book right on the Best Western site and was able to secure a deluxe room for under $100/night. The hotel was on the quiet side of town (which was great because the National Cheerleading competition was in town). The room with a stove and refrigerator. The hotel was extraordinarily clean with a bonus of it being right on the beach. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed at the Tiki for 6 nights with my 3 kids and friends. We loved our stay! The rooms were spacious and immaculate; the restaurant was very good and not too pricey; the pool deck is one of the best I've ever seen-great size pool and easy access to the beach. The rates are affordable and worth it! The staff was awesome and overall we were so comfortable and wanted to stay longer! Thank you to everyone at the hotel for having us. Julie was especially kind and friendly at the desk as was everyone else including Ward, Chelsea, Lisa, Terri.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for a Pool View room.

A clean, lovely hotel right on the sand in Daytona Beach Shores. A grassy area and upper and lower pool deck with abundant tables, lounges and fresh towels. Pool is always clean and crystal clear, surrounded by lush shrubs. Outdoor ping pong, shuffle board and basketball. Work out room with excellent equipment. Superb restaurant and bar with daily happy hour. Management and staff are always accomodating and friendly. Simply the best!

Room Tip: All rooms great!

Reserved room for one night, needed the room a second night and Terrie at the front desk worked her magic and got the room for us for a second night. when they were all booked up. Got to our room, the refrigerator knob was broke off, service came right up and fixed it within minutes. The TV made a crackling sound every time you turned it on like it was shorting out (lasted a few minutes each time then the noise went away), TV's need to be updated. Also, bathrooms are very small. Beds were comfortable. Rugs needed to be cleaned. Service was great. This room was pretty pricey, but what do you expect when you have a ocean front view.

We stayed three nights at this hotel as part of a timeshare tour package. Checkin and check out was quick. Our room was very spacious and comfortable for 4 of us and had a microwave and refrigerator. Our room was located next to the elevator so we had a bit of people noise in the mornings. Although our room faced the parking lot and we were close to the street side of the hotel, we did have an ocean view and we still had a good view of the ocean from our balcony.
The pool was large and clean and the deep end was 11 feet deep. Plenty of room for everyone to swim around.
The hotel is right on the beach with a hose and shower right at the foot of their steps for easy cleanup. The beach was clean all around this area.
The location is in Daytona Beach Shores which is a little bit south of the hustle and bustle of the main Daytona Beach town area. There are lots of restaurants nearby and a nice mini golf place just a block away.
The only reason I rate this hotel as very good instead of excellent is that their housekeeping staff shuts down pretty early in the day. We arrived late at night and slept in a bit our first day and housekeeping called about noon to say they were getting done and did we need anything. They did provide some towels which was really all we needed anyway. Not really a big deal though. The room and the entire hotel area was very clean and well kept.
They did have a problem with the elevators one day for a short time. The maintenance staff jumped right on that and got it fixed after a short time.
They have a free happy hour every day with free cocktails at the restaurant bar. You have to wear shirt/shoes to go into the bar, but there is an entrance right off the pool area so you can go inside and bring your drinks out to the pool.
I don't know what this hotel actually cost since mine was paid for by the timeshare marketing company, but I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a clean comfortable room with enough space to move around.
They have free internet as well.
