We booked this room for 3 days for Memorial Day through Booking.com and got a really good rate, but we're always hesitant when it comes to Daytona rooms. We were pleasantly surprised when we got here. Bryan at the front desk was very friendly and allowed us to check in at 1 instead of 2 so we could start our weekend. (Thanks Bryan!)
The room was extremely clean. It has tile floors, which I think I prefer, and the bedding was all clean, no sign of any bugs on the mattresses or stains or anything like that. The bathroom was also very clean. Our room had a flat screen TV, which was nice, and also included a mini-fridge, microwave and free Wi-fi. There was a table and 2 chairs, as well as a nightstand with a lamp. (We had a double bed room.) There was little to no-noise to disturb us, so that was nice too.
There is a little sitting area overlooking the beach that is covered, like a pergola. There is a swing to rock on which I enjoyed at night when it was nice and quiet.
The pool area is also nice, however, they could use more shady spots. There are only 3 tables with umbrellas and they are all together at the end of the pool, so when a family reunion claimed them all, we were left to bake in the sun. As a fair skinned person I rely on shade after a couple of hours in the sun I need the reprieve. I finally broke down and went to Family Dollar and bought my own (great idea, by the way! I was really happy after that.) There aren't many lounge chairs either. Maybe 15 or so..
Parking is tight but we didn't have any trouble finding a spot each day.
This is near many good little restaurants, and many bad ones - I wouldn't recommend the Surfside Tiki Bar at the Americano 2 doors down - we received very poor service, in fact the waitress even forgot to put in our order so we ended up walking out.
The pier is about 1.5 miles away so you've got things to do around you, and there are grocery stores close in either direction in case you need supplies.
Overall we had a great stay at this hotel and would definitely come back again.
