This is a nice clean, comfortable place to stay. However, it has pros and cons.

Cons: breakfast not included-no continental
resort fees
parking fees
limited parking
poor security
somewhat noisy building- you can hear overhead noise from people above
no other restaurants nearby for lunch or dinner

Pros: clean and comfortable
on the ocean
restaurant on site with good food and great staff
prompt room service

great saltwater pool and hot tub
fire pits and outdoor party area

Room Tip: ask for an upper floor in the "center" of the hotel main building facing the ocean and kno...

Thank you for your review. It sounds like your overall stay was most enjoyable. I do want to adress some of your con statements. There are no parking fees. Most true resorts charge a minimum of $19.00 and up our resort fee is only $6.00 per day. There is always going to be people above you or below unless you are renting a house. We have never had any security issues as we have someone 24/7 here at the property and the first floor is secured. We offer overflow parking across the street. There is a restaurant across the street and several places deliver. You can get a property that offers a continental , but what you loose in amenities is not worth the trade-off. We offer a great family place to create a lifetime of memories and that you can't put a price tag on. Thank you for your review.

Stayed at this hotel in late February 2013. Hotel is an older building but lobby and rooms are very nice. Loved having the balconey door open and listening to the ocean waves. Pool area was great with two firepits and outside bar. Large beach was very nice. Front desk clerk, DJ, was awesome!

Thank you for that great rating while you were staying with us. This building offers a beautiful structure while maintaining a fresh new look on the outside it has been freshly painted and as you stated the rooms and all other areas are newly renovated. We offer a true resort feel and private balconies which believe me there are many without this feature. Thank you again for your kind review.

Great location with a beautiful view. All the employees are nice and respectful. Room service does a great job of cleaning up so we come back to a clean room. Great location in daytona beach with good parking for tenants. Will absolutely consider staying here again and recommending it to friends.

A marvelous IHG property conveniently located to International Speedway, yet not too far north of Ponce de Leon so as to enjoy a leisurely ride down to one of the oldest, still operational Light Houses in America! Our Front Desk Clerk, DJ, was especially cordial and accommodating kicking off our vacation stay for the 72nd Daytona Bike Week and making our stay very welcoming! I have stayed in hundreds of IHG properties around the world, but never have I had such an incredibly professional and diligent employee ensure that my stay requirements were met with such exacting standards. I visited the property the week before just to ensure that I knew where it was since this was my first visit ever. Upon seeing the property it was my desire to stay two nights rather than the one night booked. However, I had already booked at another HIE property in nearby Orange City. It was at the this point that DJ's professionalism and diligence really kicked in. He assisted me, for about the next 2-1/2 hours, negotiate the extremely difficult bureaucratic malaise of IHG/Priority Club service agents in the Philippine's, & in cancelling my stay in Orange City, FL. All the while DJ, the lone front desk agent, juggled Geriatric visitors with over-zealous kindness and courtesies! I highly recommend this property and if you are having problems getting a reservation at this property call when DJ is working! Thank you for a marvelously romantic and awesome weekend! (Oh the recommendation for a sunrise on the east coast and a sunrise in the evening on the west coast was a huge hit with my girlfriend!)

My husband and I travel Florida once a year we started in Clearwater Beach then down by the Keys and this year on are way back to Michigan we thought we would stay one night in Daytona Beach since its been years since weve been there . We checked out a few hotels along the strip and we were not impressed . Then we found the Holiday Inn Resort !!!! We can honestly say that everything about this hotel exceeded our expectations !!! From the minute we walked into the lobby the front desk clerk Jamie made it seem like it was her only priority to make us happy . We got up to the room and it was so clean & updated and that view , WOW !!! We sat on the balcony to admire our last night in Florida . We will definetly be back and we have decided to exclusively stay only at Holiday Inn suites and resorts .

You are right it is a million dollar view from any of our rooms. That is what is so great about our property among the many amenities we also offer private balconies to sit on and take it all in. You would be surprised how many hotels do not offer balconies. I personally would never stay at a oceanfront property without having a balcony. So if we are sold out and you can't stay here at least make sure you pick a hotel that offers a balcony. Thank you so much for the awesome review.
