“Nice beach stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was clearly an older Hampton that is slowly getting around to the required updates. It was clean, just tired. Breakfast was your typical Hampton fare, breakfast staff was wonderful. A nice perk is that they keep a small stash of beach toys and chairs for use. For those of us traveling by plane that is wonderful. Nice pool, small hot tub. Even though our room wasn't beach front, we could still see the ocean from our balcony...enough so that I wouldn't bother paying for a beach front view. Only small glitch in our stay is that my husband left his watch...he knows exactly where it was, in an open drawer, because he was going to go back to put it on after washing his hands and forgot. Housekeeping "didn't find it." Makes me sad because there was no way it couldn't have been seen. He left the drawer open to remind himself and it was laying on top of the bible. So I guess on top of a nice tip, she got a nice watch. Would we stay again? If a new Hampton wasn't opening up the road, yes. But next time we are back we'll probably give the new one a try.

This clearly is an older property purchased by Hampton Inns, and they have done a good job with renovations although there is one section of the lobby that is not complete. Staff was very friendly! Our room was on the 8th floor and oceanfront with a private balcony--loved the view and being able to hear the waves from our room. From the breezeway at the front of our room, we could stand outside and watch the sun set over the river. The room was smallish but very clean with comfortable beds and lots of pillows and a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The pool is a decent size and there is a small hot tun outside, and the beach is wonderful and clean. Fresh cookies were available in the lobby each evening, hot coffee was available throughout the day and evening, and there were lots of breakfast choices, although the seating area is a bit cramped (but it overlooks the ocean, so there is a bonus!). Pool towels can be checked out, and there are a FEW beach chairs available (HINT: If you plan to use their beach chairs, go out early--they get gone quickly. Or bring your own if you can). We were there for three nights and would absolutely stay there again. Great for families! Be sure to ask for a high floor and oceanfront -- it is worth the small up barge!

Hampton Inn Daytona Shores was a great place to stay. Our room overlooked the ocean and the pool and we enjoyed that view everyday. The room was very clean and fresh towles every day. I used the washer/dryer while at the hotel and that area was pleasant, clean and reasonably priced for a wash and dry. The breakfast was fantastic, the variety of breakfast items to choose from was awesome. The only negative thought is that the breakfast area was not big enough to accommodate all the guests. At times, you had to wait for a table or use a smaller table and borrow a chair. That was a small inconvenience compared to the great breakfast they served. the staff was very pleasant, helpful and always willing to help. I would definitely go back to this Hampton Inn again.

Room Tip: Overlooking the ocean was a great plus when booking a room here.

This hotel was described as being "two" miles south of the major destinations on Daytona Beach and A1A, however, it was actually closer to "six" miles away. Wasn't a huge problem but being that my girlfriend and I are in our early 20's, we would have preferred to be closer to the "livlier" parts of the coastline. All in all, this hotel was great, clean, and they're building a new Perfect Mix Room on the lobby level. Great pool, slightly crowded hot tub. Nice beach area, elevators are a little on the slow side. Staff is awesome. Complimentary razors, toothbrushes etc if you need one. Cookies in the evening and cont. breakfast every morning. Had a 9/10 hotel.

Room Tip: Beach side or South-facing rooms.BOOK IN ADVANCE

This was our first trip to Daytona, spring break, March 2013. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the cold. We were in an oceanview room with a balcony, 2 queen beds and an in-room safe. The room was very spacious and clean; housekeeping did an excellent job keeping it that way during our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the linens clean and fresh. Breakfast was good and the staff did an excellent job keeping up with the large number of people. If we ever come to Daytona again, we will definitely stay here.

Had a great time. Check in was quick. Room was very clean. I felt that the staff cared a lot about the place. Saw someone out cleaning the parking lot and pool area many times of the day. A lot of little personal touches like sticky notes for the clean linens, to the free FRESH baked cookies at night. I will be back again.

March 22nd I returned to this hotel for the second time this year and was immediatley recognized and welcomed by the staff. I stay at a lot of hotels on my business travels and the front desk staff at this particular hotel are the friendliest and as helpful you will find anywhere. The hotel is currently undergoing needed renovation, However, this is more than made up for by the fantastic beachfront location and the friendliness of all the staff. I would throughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a wonderful beachfront location.
