Pros: - The location is nice. It's just off I-75, is tucked back just enough that there's not much noise from the main roads. Plenty of dining options are walkable - if not a very short drive/Uber ride away. - The lobby has been modernized as many couryards are and their dining area/coffee shop are nice. - Room was clean,...

This place costs some dollars -- almost twice what it costs for a nicer room on the sand in Daytona. Everything is extra -- no free breakfast. The room was clean, but small and the air conditioning unit was extra loud. I really expected more for the money and was disappointed.

This is a typical Courtyard. Hotel lobby was nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It was a little difficult to find. Located behind the Steak and Shake. Room was comfortable and clean and everything worked. The price was a little high however that seems to be the going rate in this town. Will probably stay here again... More

The fitted sheet wouldn't stay on the bed, the comforter was torn, the remote control wasn't clean, and there was not a soap dish in the bathroom. We were disappointed in the hotel. The location was the best aspect of the hotel
