I was SO thrilled when I saw the view from our room on the third floor (Rm 313). I felt like we were living a dream. I am a native Southern Californian, spoiled by the views of the Pacific Ocean, and I never imagined the beautiful beach that we had access to here on the East Coast. What a lovely stretch of beach!! I never expected to get a million-dollar view like this at an economy-priced hotel. From the huge window (or if we sat on the porch) we had a clear view of both the pool and the beach/ocean (and EVERY room has an ocean view and a small patio with patio chairs). Because of the views from my room, I could stay upstairs and still watch anyone in either the pool or on the beach (I also had full view of my car that was safely parked at the hotel). The area and the hotel were quiet, safe, and convenient. We were located on the "main drag" of the Daytona Beach area, and we were only one mile from the Daytona Pier and Boardwalk. All of the hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. They went out of their way to insure that we were enjoying our vacation. Moe, Gigi, Ellen, and all of the other Howard Johnson staff treated us like family. I was vacationing with my twin 16 year old grandchildren, and we enjoyed using the refreshing pool as we relaxed with the sounds of ocean next to us. The pool area was rather large, well maintained, and there was even a separate "kiddy pool" for guests with young children. Our room was not fancy, but it was clean, large, and well laid out. It was nice to have a full kitchen, and a mirrored dressing table outside of the bathroom. It wasn't a "handicapped room", but Moe (the manager) provided me with a shower-chair to use when bathing. Everyday Gigi gave us printed copies of interesting facts about the area ( I teach "history", so I appreciated this extra information), and coupons and suggestions for local restaurants and attractions. There are two convenient stores directly across the street, and a huge miniature golf facility less than a block from the hotel. The beach is very clean, and a lifeguard was stationed right in front of our hotel. We never had to worry about unwanted loud "beach parties" or any safety issues. Even at night, we felt safe walking along the shore. This was DEFINATELY one of the BEST hotel values this I have ever had. I love Southern California, but I WILL be back to the Howard Johnson Inn in Ormond Beach again!!!
