“It was just what we wanted!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2008

4 of us came here and stayed in the Sunset View Apartments over spring break. This place pleasantly surprised us! The room was very clean and the staff was REALLY nice, they even arranged for us to have a later check-out time. It's prime location and was extremely reasonably priced. The little cafe is absolutely adorable too. I would DEF. recommend staying here to anyone who's not looking to break the bank but still wants a nice, clean place to stay. I'm sure i'll be back there again!

  • Liked — great prices, location, nice employees
  • Disliked — probably the indoor pool, it was a LITTLE sketchy

I'm an advid traveler that stays in hotels probably about 1 to 2 times per month based on trips for business purposes and leisure. Tropical Winds pleasantly surprised me. I expected cheap motelish accomodations with hard beds and bland decor. Instead, I slept like a baby in a very comfortable king size bed with an unobstructed view, kitchenette and great service in the hotel. My husband and I stayed at this hotel with the idea that we just wanted a quick weekend getaway at a very small price. This was perfect. Nice pools right on the ocean and it was not filled with crazy spring breakers. The room isn't going to compare to a Sheraton but it will definite work for you. I haven't seen a motel room this clean on the beach in quite some time. Please make sure to stop in the cafe for breakfast and lunch everyday. The manager was so friendly and fun to listen to and the food was excellent for the very inexpensive price. Quiet end of the strip but close enough to hop and skip down the road to all the nightlife and restaurants. The only down side is that you absolutely need a car in Daytona. It isn't really a beach town in which you can walk to everything. You do have to drive. Make sure to take the drive down to the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse at the end of the strip. The drive was my favorite part of the trip with fantastic yet scary views at the top of the lighthouse. We would definitely return again.

  • Liked — The view from my balcony on the 5th floor.
  • Disliked — The surrounding location (no stores nearby even for food).

If you want to be right on the beach, and not spend a fortune, this is a great hotel! It looks to have been recently updated. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Great oceanside pool! Indoor heated pool too! The onsite cafe serves an inexpensive breakfast & lunch menu. Kitchenette helps to save some $$$ as well on the food bill.
The only problem I had was the hallway (4th floor) had a bit of a musty smell... but maybe that comes with being on the beach?
If you're looking for luxurey, this ain't it... but for a good clean room with fantastic beach access, this one is well worth the money!!!

  • Liked — Great beach access and good price/value.
  • Disliked — The hallways were a bit musty smelling.
