“What a great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We were pleasantly surprised with this hidden gem!! We have been to Daytona Beach in the past and decided to take our chances here. We are glad we did. The entire staff was friendly and helpful from start to finish. Lorrie at the Tiki Bar made it so much fun we never left at night. I am not sure why others have complained (other than you can't please everyone). Do things need to be updated, yes a little, does it make a difference NO. Rooms (we were upgraded the second night of our 4 night stay) were clean, beds were comfortable (not my tempur-pedic but still better than other nice places we have stayed), restaurant was great, Tiki Bar could use some minor improvements but come on it is a Tiki Bar on the Beach with great bartenders (especially when Lorrie is there) so who cares!!! Had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries sent to the room for our anniversary (got points with the wife) and they were great. All the food we had was excellent.

We will be returning in the near future and I would suggest you ignore any bad reviews, book your room,get there, have fun and say hi to Lorrie for us ;o)

Lorrie was a blast to hang with at the tiki bar she helped in guiding us to good locations and tourist fun. We looked forward to the evenings and sitting outside and shooting the breeze with her and other guests. Lorrie was a big part of the great experience!

Room Tip: Stay during the week.

We stayed just one night at this paradise by the ocean but can't wait to return with the whole family!! The facilities are superb and very secure...we had to unlock two doors to get into our room. The personnel were very friendly and helpful...one young man(wish I could remember his name) took our luggage up to the room and wrote down the directions to a place we had asked him about. The room was clean with very comfortable beds. The breakfast in the room the next morning was delicious!! We were given the ingredients for s'mores in a cute bag when we arrived. There is a fire pit overlooking the beach where we prepared these!! There are numerous activities for families poolside. We took advantage of the valet parking as the parking lot is across the street and our car was readily available when we needed it. We can't wait to return to The Shores with our grandchildren!!

Everything about this place is fabulous! I come here regularly just to hang out at the Tiki Bar with the best bartender around, Lori!!! She alone is worth staying at the hotel! If you stay here - you must ask for her and then you must try one of her Lori Specials! You can't beat the atmosphere on a beautiful sunny day or a beautiful starry night - tiki bar in front of the ocean and fire pits! Favorite place in Daytona to go - hands down!!

Room Tip: All of their beds are amazing so location of the room doesn't matter to me

The Shores Resort has been such a great experience. The rooms are beachy and homey, and the service has been fantastic. I gave the rooms a four because our shower is currently being worked on. However, this is the first issue we have had with four days here. The Azure restaurant and lounge are welcoming and have reasonable prices. Our favorite hangout has been the tiki bar by the pool. Lorrie is the bartender in the evening and she is very friendly and helpful in all ways. She also has a "Lorrie's Special" drink that will knock your socks off. We will definitely be back here!

Great time at this hotel. We were here for business and the service was great. We really enjoyed Laurie at the tiki bar. The rooms were big and comfortable. The reservation specialist Megan was extremely accommodating as well
