“Wonderful, family-style place to stay on the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We used to stay at the Lynn Scott Lee two doors down until it and another motel were sold to build condos. Loved the LSL, so when we visited a vacation show in Columbus and told the Daytona Beach rep that we were looking for a similar place, she recommended Royal Holiday. We could tell from our first contact with Marilyn that this would be someplace special. She was friendly, helpful, and took our reservations--she didn't even ask for our credit card number! Though check-in is 3:00, she told us that we could check in early if we needed to after our plane arrived at Daytona. Once we got there, Marilyn cheerfully greeted us, explained how everything worked, and told us to be sure to ask if we had questions about anything. Our room was on the second floor, facing the ocean, and it was very clean with "specially" folded washcloths in the bathroom and kitchen. (my husband took a picture!) We had everything we needed--oven, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, linens, silverware and dishes--so we could eat breakfast and lunch at the motel then go out to nearby restaurants for dinner. It was so nice to wake up in the morning and walk just a few steps to the beach for an early-morning stroll. The owners take good care of the place down to the minutest detail--there are dehumidifiers in each room to help keep the rooms cool, plenty of hangers in the closet, outdoor lighting on the palm trees in front, and someone even hoses off the wooden steps leading to the beach every morning! Great owners, great rooms, great prices--what more can you ask for? I highly recommend this motel!

Room Tip: Though the motel doesn't advertise wi-fi, it is available in the office. We found that if we sa...

We used to stay here when I was a kid and our family fell in love with this motel and the wonderful, friendly family that owns/manages the property. My husband and I were searching for oceanfront rooms and when I found out they had one available the week we were looking for, I knew I didn't need to look any further. Not only did they have an oceanfront, but their oceanfront rooms are efficiencies with kitchen areas and it was more affordable than other hotels' regular rooms! Amazing service, super clean rooms, great value! Thanks Joncas family for a great week at the beach!!!!

We returned to the Royal Holiday Beach Motel for the third year and were equally pleased and satisfied as the two previous times. The excellent service and friendliness of Pierre, Marilyn and Chris is outstanding. They cater to all your wishes and some besides and it seems that you are their long lost friends. The property and the rooms are immaculate and the beach is just 2 minutes from your room. How could you ask for more. We have rebooked our room for the same time next year and would certainly recommend this place to our friends.

This place is everything that has been mentioned in other reviews and MORE. There are good restaurants in the area and within walking distance.clean, fabulous, everything you need is right there.We liked it because it was quiet, and although there is a pool available it's the beach access we loved. We are definately going again.

We have been visiting the Royal Holiday for years and are never disappointed. The rooms/ efficiencies are well maintained, updated, and CLEAN. The owners are both accommodating and friendly. The location is perfect; the short walk on the beach to Sunglow Pier is an added bonus. My sisters and I enjoyed the motel as children and are continuing the tradition with our own families. The Royal Holiday is the perfect beach getaway!

This property is smaller- which makes it great. Right on the beach-with good parking and accessibility. There are good restaurants in the area and within walking distance. It's the owners/operators that make it fabulous. it's super clean and really well kept up for an older facility. Our room was plenty big with a Queen bed, a sofa and a nice sized, well equipped little kitchen with a full sized fridge and table and I would take this over huge and new every time. The other rooms have either a queen or two doubles. They accomodate late arrivals and will find anything you need. wireless Internet access is available- but there are a few rooms that do not have it yet.
Best to inquire if this is a big deal to you. We just took our laptop to the picnic bench by the office and it was good.
We rented bicycles for a ride on the beach from a place called Blue coast- a short drive from the motel or they deliver. they also do surf and paddle board lessons.
There's a wharf within walking distance that has a restaurant and you can rent equipment to fish off the end of the pier.
We liked it because it was quiet, and although there is a pool available it's the beach access we loved. We Already booked for next year .

Room Tip: poolside rooms have no view but are super quiet. There are some that face the parking lot with no st...
