“Perfect weekend getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

I wasn't sure what to expect as I have not stayed on Florida East Coast beaches before. I was pleasantly surprised at the location of the hotel. Right off hwy 40 and nice hotel. The room was nice size with an oceanview. The hotel is right on the beach. It was unusually warm at 80 degrees in January, so I was able to keep the patio door open to view the waves lapping at the sand and hear the roar of the tides. The free breakfast was good and well stocked. I requested to extend my stay one night and the front desk accommodated me without question. I would definitely stay here again. If there was any drawback, it would be the limited above ground parking. Being on the beach, this is typical.

My husband, son and I traveled to Florida to visit a school in Jacksonville for my 18 year old. We decided to stay close to Daytona Beach. Not familiar with the area, found this hotel because of their rates. My husband found a coupon for this hotel, so I called the 800 number and they gave me a better rate than I found online. On top of that, I was able to use the coupon at checkout! The maid service was excellent. We had no issues with anything. So close to Daytona Beach - maybe 3 miles? Beach was excellent! I would recommend this hotel and will definitely visit again. Thanks BW for your awesome hospitality!

Room Tip: I originally reserved a room with a kitchenette. But I called the 800 number for a coupon I had...

We had stayed here a couple of times on New Year's eve and enjoyed the local festivities down on Main Street. We checked in fairly quickly and went to our room on the 6th floor to drop off our bags. Decided to go for a walk on the beach before dinner. We got in the elevator and pushed the button for the ground floor. Our elevator descended a bit and then stopped. Being claustrophobic, it couldn't have been a worse scenario. I will say that help arrived quickly but had trouble getting to us. Finally they got the doors opened enough for us to climb up and out. After that they closed the elevator so everyone had only one to use. We did encounter ants in the kitchenette and poor house keeping. Used water bottles stuck under the nightstand and dirty socks that did not belong to us next to the bed. When checking out, I told the clerk about the ants and that we were the couple that were stuck in the elevator the night before. She gave us $10 off the rate of our room. Hmmm!

i am a retired convention/meeting planner booking 5-star hotels/resorts to 3-star hotels, so i know hotels. this hotel completely renovated 1 yr ago. very nice decor, friendly/helpful staff, nice queen - not double bed, pillow top mattresses, great rates, nice free breakfast w/eggs/pancakes. nice pool area with even now a fire pit. only downside is the ocean view rooms have a hotel next door and the side of hotel is not slanted out, so limited ocean view, mainly from balcony even on top floor. book an ocean front. - well worth the price difference, which is the same or less than other daytona beach hotels with old decor and double beds at that. of course the hilton and grand ocean hotels are better with large lobbies, and convention-type decor and feel, but the price is 3-4 times higher. if you're on a budget or not on an expense account, the bw del sol is a very nice beach hotel and well worth the price. it may be in ormond beach, but has plenty of restaurants around it and only 3-4 miles to the daytona pier, which you can see from the balcony. plus, no hassle of cars on the beach in this area. drive down to the pier area if you want to get hit by a car on the beach. i'd rather enjoy just the sand and ocean and not look at cars unless i want to. this was our first trip to the del sol and we'll be going back. enjoy.

Room Tip: book an ocean front for better view - ocean view rooms have limited view due to hotel's construc...

We arrived a day early but had no problem adding the extra day to our booked stay. The front desk staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Our room was great. The cleaning staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back to this hotel on our next stay in the area.
