“bikers beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Hotel was okay. Front desk staff friendly and responsive but not too professional. During Bike Week there was no arrangements for trailer parking. Trailer parking nearby was $20 a night. they would not allow any trailer parkIng.

A very nice beachfront hotel just a short distance from the hustle and congestion of Daytona Beach.The hotel is convenient to Daytona Beach attractions and to St. Augustine for a day trip. The hotel is close to many restaurants as well.

Our first stay here. The 2 queen bed on sixth floor was OK with a good view, but the bathroom was very small and the shower curtain rack fell down. When we reported this to the front desk, they switched us to a one bedroom suite without our even asking for a different room. The suite was excellent.

The hotel is in a great location just 10 minutes from I95 with its own free parking and right on the beach. We were given an Ocean View 2 Queen bed room on the 2nd floor. The exterior could as always with this type of hotel do with a bit of tLC however, the room was well appointed and very clean. Each room has a balcony with a couple of chairs to sit and enjoy the view. There is an outdoor pool with plenty of sun beds it is just a step through a gate and down 3 steps and there you are on the world famous Daytona Beach sand,
Breakfast was the usual Best Western fare not fantastic but enough to keep you going for the day.
I would stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel more than 7 times in as many years and generally have been pleased. However, more than once, my reservation and the actual room reserved for me was different. I always request and reserve an ocean front room, only to arrive and an ocean view (not on beach front) was booked. The last time, the front desk person said they cannot guarantee ocean front unless I call into to the hotel directly, not on AAA that I used. So, this time I called in directly to hotel, repeated 3 times for clarity, that I was booking an ocean front room and was quoted same as showed on line for ocean front. But when I arrived, they had again reserved an ocean view at a less expensive rate. The front staff was short and argumentative and said they were all booked up. Finally they offered me a bottom floor ocean front by the noisy pool as their consolation. They obviously ignore your preference. Too bad, because the location and facility is good.

I was staying in town for a wedding close by and came across this online. The hotel was great, location is close to I95, maybe 10 minutes East. The room was huge- I asked for a king room with ocean view - it was a 3 room suite- it's own living room with pull out couch, jacuzzi tub in bathroom, separate sink and mirror area and a separate bedroom with the king bed. There was even a kitchen with a table and basic dishes so you can cook. I had 2 balconys looking north towards the ocean. Even though it was not ocean front the view was nice and the huge room was worth it. Also the pool and fire pit area was so nice, lots of lounge chairs and right on the beach. This hotel was worth the price!

Room Tip: Ask of a jacuzzi king ocean view room- you will be amazed at the huge room!

This is an older typical beachfront hotel and while it shows a little wear, it is a lovely and friendly hotel with exceptional views. We found our ocean view suite to be clean and well furnished, the bed very comfortable and the balcony although small was positioned with a great water view as well as a good view up the coastline. The suite had a nice sized jacuzzi which we didn't use but I imagined it would provide a nice relaxing soak. The pool is very large and provided plenty of room to stay away from splashing kids. There were lots of lounge chairs around the pool, enough for everyone for sure. I spent most of my time on the beach and found the it te gate behind the pool to be easy access to the sand. There was also a little faucet to wash the sand off before re-entering the pool area. Fairly priced and clean, friendly staff and in a great location with lots of good food options nearby - enough to entice me to stay here again and again!

Room Tip: Not sure if any of the suites are water front, ours was on the corner on the 6th floor. Good height...
