“Good Location, GREAT View ..... Great rates”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Stayed 6 nights here recently in Room 402. Easy, courteous check in, employees were very polite and helpful. Was upgraded to an Oceanfront room as a Rewards Member. Room was large with 2 Queen beds, work table as well as dining table. Full kitchen with stove, microwave and a larger refrig with freezer. Nice pool right on the beach and deck area with plenty of chairs and a fire pit for conversation. Surface and below ground parking was fine and both elevators were fast. Wi-Fi was FREE, FAST and worked flawlessly !

Room was very clean and beds were very comfortable .... Nothing objectionable at all. Front door could use a little work and be advised the doors open OUT instead of in ... Struggled for a minute with that after a very late night arrival ! Room had a little musty smell when I first got there but after having the deck door open for awhile it was gone and never noticed it after the first day. Probably due to being the off season and the room hadn't been occupied recently.

Woke every morning to a great sunrise. Plenty of dining and grocery choices within the area all make this hotel a good choice.

Overall a GREAT stay and will stay here again the next time I'm in the area.

Room Tip: Upgrade to an Oceanfront room for the few dollars extra .... well worth it.

I picked out this hotel for our club soccer team to stay at while playing in a soccer tournament. I have some very picky parents so I was a little hesitate because of the age of the hotel and being that it was on the beach, sometimes rooms have that musty smell. My room was absolutely awesome and the view was wonderful! I did not get any complaints and everyone loved their rooms. The hotel was renovated in 2007 and was done very nicely. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to stay in Ormond Beach.

Room Tip: Definitely spend the extra money to get an oceanfront room.

I am a member of Bestwestern rewards program, and at times, hotels do go the extra mile for that. Not this time. As a mater of fact, I requested an Ocean view with specific instructions for room to be quiet. I do understand that they are not obligated to do so, but, for a half full hotel with many empty rooms, putting us in room 317, in front of floor elevators, does not exactly qualify as "quiet".

Check in: fast and easy
Location: excellent on the beach.
Staff friendliness (unrelated to room assignment): semi-friendly.
Wifi: free, good signal.
Room: outdated, but clean, no kitchen, mini fridge yes.
Parking: free and ample.

Would I come here again, yes with reservations.
Helpful hints: room 308 (friend stayed there) is a dream. Try and nab it or similar. You get a full kitchen, tons of space, and a water front balcony.

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...
