So basically I needed a mini-vacay, I hunted online for the best deals on Daytona Beach via Hotels.com and Expedia. I came across this hotel due to its low nightly rates and 4-5 star ratings. After reading its overwhelmingly large amounts of Excellent reviews I couldnt resist.
I have to say I loved every minute of being at this hotel from the updated rooms to the pool overlooking the ocean. We were able to stay two weekday nights and the place wasn't overly crowded at all. It was so peaceful and the customer service was just top notch. The owners had nothing but smiles on their faces (probably from all the money they have been making) LOL The rooms were A+ for the price and had updated electronic keys to get in the rooms. The hotel's grounds were very nice and spacious with tons of open areas and a barbecue for get togethers and whatnot. We got to see multiple dolphins at dusk and that was amazing! The Hotels location was just perfect right off of state road 40 aka Grenada where theres tons of eateries and things to do. I have to say I ate at a local place called Goodies and they have the best donuts, sandwhiches, and muffins I have ever had. Their prices were sooooo cheap. Full meals for 5.95 and 6.95 for lunch. A must visit, its right down the street! Heading south a few minutes on Atlantic you will run into the pier and all that jazz as well. I highly recommend this hotel for its value!
I found a strong Odor when I entered the room at first, it was kind of intense in a not so good way. I know the usual hotel smell and that was not it! Everything else was on point. The pool was a little dirty the first day, and I was there all day. I didnt see anyone clean it. I also went the second day and it was worse with more deadbugs and what nots floating everywhere, which I think could be an easy fix if they stuck their maintenance guy on cleaning it more often. I didnt see it get cleaned not once while I was there, and I was there poolside pretty much the whole time. SO those are my two small issues.
Ask for Oceanfront View! I didnt ask, because I thought they were sold out b/c they werent advertise...

The staff and I want to thank you for staying with us and for such a great review. We are delighted that you had a wonderful stay with us and you enjoyed the beach. Getting a glimpse of dolphins playing in the ocean is always a great experience.

We apologize for the swimming pool not being as clean as you expected. We do have a pool company that comes multiple times during the week to clean and maintain the pool. Unfortunately, being on the beach, we have wind gusts throughout the day that bring in a lot of sand and other things from the roadside as well as from the beach. We try our best to keep the hotel grounds as clean as we can. We hope that you will visit us again soon.
