“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Good hotel with nice quiet location. There is a pool for adults and small pool for todlers. Breakfast is not good so we small kitchen came in handy. Beach is paradise for bicycle riders, gets windy but its ok. Ocean front room can get expensive.

We have an oceanfront room that is spacious, clean and has a balcony! Quite frankly, what more do you want in Daytona but to be on the beach! We love Best Westerns and the service is consistent, they don't charge extra for parking and free wi-fi/breakfast is included. This hotel is central and you can't beat the view. Who doesn't love the sound of waves crashing lulling you to sleep?

Room Tip: Ask for the oceanfront - definitely worth the few $$ more.

We have stayed here, probably 7-8 times, and enjoyed every stay. We normally use it as a base for the 'Turkey Rod Run' at the track. The restaurant is good, the staff are great, and the views are amazing. Just fall out of bed onto the beach, or into the pool! We stayed somewhere else last time, and really missed the Aku Tiki!

The location, service, price, free breakfast and cleanliness were all a plus on this trip. The front desk staff was even kind enough to send a fax for me at no charge. We would definitely stay here again.

We stated here for one night using a free nights stay and found the hotel to be ok. It is older but not dirty. We used the pool the night we got there and liked that. The rooms are old and need of some TLC. We like to stay in nicer hotels but didn't have much choice to use our free night we got from our trip out west during the summer.

I would never stay here again. We did not like Daytona at all. In the morning we went to walk on the beach and there was garbage everywhere. Diapers, plastic plates/cups/silverware, toys, just junk everywhere. Not somewhere I would ever go again.

Room was decent size, tv hardly worked (loud buzzing noise, seemed like it would explode), ok for an old hotel.

Face it, Daytona Beach is a tired strip of barrier island that has seen better days. We were in town for the 24 Hours of Daytona (sportscar race) and just needed a place to sleep out of the noise that was not too expensive. We were pleasantly surprised. The woman who checked us in was exceedingly friendly and accomodating. I had a problem with the room I had been assigned (next to the elevator) and ended up in a rather large room with a balcony almost over the beach. Every room has a balcony with a great view. I mostly appreciated the cleanliness of the facility. No musty hotel smell that is sometimes detectable in a seaside establishment. The room was not the newest, bathroom certainly not the biggest, breakfast not the best. But I saw friends' hotel rooms in other establishments in Daytona Beach and I heartily recommend the Aku Tiki.

Once again my husband and I returned to Daytona Beach, Florida. Stayed at the Aku Tiki again. It was great as usual, can't say enough about the amenities and the staff. We've stayed at a lot of places on the beach and this is by far the best place to stay when you are in Daytona. Beautifully kept grounds, huge pool, hot breakfast, happy hour, full service restaurant. What more could you want?
