“Believe it or not, even better than ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2007

We have stayed at the Daytona Beach Regency for years, and even I could not believe how great our stay was this year! Upon arriving at 12:30 pm, we were told that once we had finished speaking with the conceirge, our room should be ready - it was actually ready within 5 minutes!! By 1:15 we were completely unloaded, unpacked, and changing into swimsuits to enjoy the absolutely beautiful day that was outside! Our oceanfront room was extremely clean and well-stocked with dishes and towels. We also had a personal visit from our floor's head of cleaning staff, Matilda (who was a hoot!!) - she made sure that our room was clean all week, and that we always had extras of everything! I haven't felt so pampered in years!

We spent seven glorious days enjoying the great room, beautiful weather, relaxing and fun pool area, and the great personalities and drink-making abilities of our tiki bartenders, Sharon and Billy. This was by far the best vacation we have had - all made possible by the wonderful and caring staff at the Daytona Beach Regency! Keep up the great work!

My family and i just returned from a 8 day stay at the Daytona Beach Regency. We had some Sunterra Points about to expire, so we chose this hotel being it was in close driving range to TN for our 10 month old which is still too young for Disney. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The hotel was better than I had imagined. It is in a prime location next to the famous Boardwalk of Daytona Beach. Our room was absolutely beautiful. the decor was very new and modern-not like the old fashioned peach seashell decor that you see in most beach condos. We had a 1-bedroom on the 9th floor that had an amazing view. Yes, there is a condemmed hotel next door that was destroyed in the hurricane. However, while we were there they were fencing it of as if to tear it down really soon. The resort had a grat pool with a really cool waterslide. The beach access was awesome. the security was amazing with guards patrolling 24-7. There is a parking garage below the resort with a few spaces available for large vehicles at the entrance to the resort. If there wasn't one available, the security guard would make one available. Overall, the stay was amazing and we will be back. We liked it so much, we stayed an extra day. Also, we decide to sell our RCI property and purchased with Sunterra. Loved the Daytona Beach Regency!!!

We just returned from a vacation in Daytona Beach, FL and we stayed at the Daytona Beach Regency. We had a great time. We were in Daytona Beach for the National Tumbling and Trampoline Competition @ the Ocean Center. One of the host hotels for the event was the Hilton, which is right across the street. Many other gym people stayed @ the Ocean Walk Resort, which is right next to the Hilton. I debated between those two hotels and read the reviews before I decided on the Daytona Beach Regency. Many of the reviews are accurate about the Ocean Walk. This property has 4000 units stacked on top of each other and there are not enough pool chairs and the elevators cannot keep up with the guests. I heard many complaints from other gym people. The Hilton is nice but it's just a room. You get so much more @ the Daytona Beach Regency. It is located right next to the Ocean Walk. It is has 11 floors and two elevators. We did not have to wait on elevators ever! It has a nice pool area. My kids loved the spiral slide into the pool. It was never soooo crowded that you couldn't find a chair. You need to wear wristbands so outsiders off the beach cannot come to your pool. Security patrolled the pool. The stairs to the beach has a gate with a combination that is given to you @ check in, again, to keep people who don't belong there out of your pool area. The outdoor hot tub was nice also. The indoor pool is small. There is also an indoor hot tub. That wasn't an issue since we spent all our time @ the outdoor pool or on the beach. The Tiki Bar is handy for drinks and food. The beach area for the Daytona Beach Regency is nice and you can walk easily down to the pier, which is just past the Hilton hotel. You can rent umbrellas from a truck that parks on the beach and sets up two lounger chairs and an umbrella. It is $25.00 per day and you keep it the whole day. He tags it with your name so no one can take it. You can also rent boogie boards and smaller folding lounge chairs from the Regency's front desk. The boogie boards were $2.00 per day or $8.00 for the week. Next door to the Regency is an old hotel that is in the process of being torn down. We heard that the property owners might make a park out of it but I find that hard to believe, it will be nice property once it's torn down. Housekeeping comes once a week if you want it. If you don’t, just tell them when the knock and they will give you fresh towels or kleenex or anything you need. There is shampoo and soap in the bathroom. The rooms......they were great! It was like staying in an apartment. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom. It was so worth the extra money we paid for the 2 bedroom. It was huge! We had 4 adults and 2 kids and we had plenty of room. It gave you some space since there was a TV in the living room and in each bedroom. The couch in the living room is a sofa bed. There is a full kitchen and everything you need in it. A full size fridge, stove, microwave, sink, dishwasher and kitchen table and chairs. The 2nd bedroom and bathroom can be shut off by a door. There is a mini kitchen in that room also. A small fridge and microwave with sink and stove. We did not have an ocean front, which was not a big deal. The ocean front rooms usually go to the owners. We got a call about attending a timeshare meeting. They offered to give each couple a $100 visa gift card and a 3 day/2night stay for a future stay. We went and it was on the 11th floor @ our hotel. You did not leave or go to another location anytime during the presentation. They showed you some of their remodeled penthouse apartments (which are beautiful) and gave you their whole timeshare points system spiel. It was interesting but we were not buying. We told them no and had no hassles. The presentation lasted 90 minutes and they stuck right to that timeframe. We left with gift card in hand and coupon for another stay and we have our choice between 9 different places to stay. It was worth it so if they call you to go, they are very flexible on times and days, pick one and go! No line for check in and the front desk staff was very friendly. The concierge was very nice also. They really are there to make you happy. Across the street are gift shops. There is the Starlight Diner, IHOP, Dominos, Napolis Italian food, Baskin Robins Ice Cream all close by. Papa Johns also delivers to your room. We walked to the Ocean Walk shops and there wasn't much there as far as shopping. There were restaurants and bars, ice cream and a few shops. My daughter got her hair braided in the "square ". There was an artist painting names with pictures which was so cool. If you walk a little bit further, there are arcade games and a huge bungee ball ride. On the beach, nearby the Regency, you can buy food from a vendor and they have everything. Cheesy fries, hamburgers, etc. Just a few feet away from that you can parasail, which we did that too. There is another ride that a jet ski takes on a long tube ride. The hotel was just in a great location. It looks so small sitting next to the Ocean Walk but let me tell you, bigger isn't always better. The lobby was beautiful. Gold leather chairs, chandeliers, a big bouquet of flowers in the center. There were vending machines in the hotel which sell food, ice cream and amenities like tide and bounce, a game room with arcade games, air hockey and pool table, 2 washer and dryers on each floor to use free of charge. There was a drink lounge that you passed on your way out to the pool. There was a small fitness room also. The amenities you get with this hotel are unbeatable. We were so happy our entire stay. If you have an event @ the Ocean Walk, it is just a short walk. Lots to look @ while walking. We shared a 12 passenger van with another group from the airport and it cost us 15.00 each. (30.00 total for the ride). I hope this information is helpful if you are trying to decide on a hotel in Daytona Beach. I give this place 5 stars!!!!

I type this after being back home in Vermont for a week - back in the land of clouds, snow, maple syrup and mud season. Our last family vacation was 10 yrs previous (also to Florida). The week we spent at the Daytona Beach Regency was so wonderful - I checked out reviews of the hotel ahead of time, and found someone so upset because of some pigeon droppings on the deck. So what! At least it's not ten inches of snow!! We won our week's stay at the hotel on Ebay. After two days of driving 700 miles, the girl at the service desk was so pleasant and nice. She was happy to meet her first person from Vermont, and had not ever experienced an air temperature cooler than 40F. Our 10 yr old daughter was stung by a jellyfish her first 20 minutes in the water - the manager was very helpful with vinegar and advice. We all spent much time in the very clean pool, and the kids all loved the waterslide! We went to a music concert just 5 minutes' walk away one evening - we met another family from the Daytona area that had five children - we now have some penpals and new friends! Even though it was a "spring break" week, it worked out very well for us - the college kids were out all night and we were out all day.... The cleaning lady came just often enough with clean towels, and was fun to talk to. We found our apartment to be just right for our family size, and very clean. We didn't use many kitchen dishes - we had brought some of our own - we didn't want to break anything. We all walked the beach about twice per day. The weather was perfect. The sand was beautiful except for all the jellyfish. The place felt just like our home for our week there. We even caught ourselves calling it home toward the end of our stay!

Ideally located for the pier, the boardwalk and the beach. The Regency provides first class accommodation on Daytona Beach within easy walking distance of some great music bars, American fast food restaurants and a super diner. The rooms are very spacious, well cared for with an excellent housekeeping service - lovely crispy towels and linen changed on a regular basis and very jolly staff.
The pool is located next to the beach - great for kids of all ages with a nice big terrace and bar for snacks and drinks. There is also an indoor pool with a small gym
Whilst furniture shows a little sign of age the rooms are very well equipped and the overall experience was of a very clean, well managed hotel striving to maintain high standards - we very much enjoyed our stay.
The only negative aspect was pigeons - they like to congregate on the balconys which is a minor irritation - apparently thay are concidered an endangered species in this area - we have millions of the pesky things!!!!

The Daytona Beach Regency is a DISASTER!

A two night stay quickly turned into one horrible night. The room (room have kitchens) stunk like fried fish, the smell was in everything. We complained, they promisd to setup an ozone generator and spray the room while we went out -- they did not setup an ozone generator; but they did spray, it did not help.

The place was run down, pool area was falling apart, lobby (what little there was) was stark, the rooms were old & beat looking, and the parking area looked like a slum.

Booked through Onlinehotels[--] (the only way the hotels web page would let you book) and paid a deposit for each night. The Regency did not have another room available, so we checked out after the one night. The Regency did not charge for the second night, but could or would not refund the room deposit (told we had to go through Onlinehotels).

DO NOT USE Onlinehotels[--]
Onlinehotels[--] would not refund the unused night deposit.
Onlinehotels[--] is a rip-off, call 411 and call the hotels directly to book.

We went down the street a couple blocks to the La Quinta, the rooms were nice and clean, and the price was the same.

My family and I stayed at Daytona Beach Regency during June 2006. We had a one bedroom ocean front unit. The unit was in ok condition. We had some slight problems with a balcony door that wouldn't close completely, elevators that didn't work and other issues that are common in beach properties. Some construction was on going but it wasn't a bother. Any time we had a problem the management responded quickly.

We had easy beach access. There was a pool with a slide my kids enjoyed and lots of activities during the week including live bands. The resort seemed more geared towards adults and older groups than families.

The staff was great and made every effort to make sure our stay was a good one.

My family liked staying there but there were some issues that make us more likely to stay at another property next time.
