“Great Location, Old Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

I loved that the hotel was right on the beach and at a great spot too. The pool and deck were nice. The staff seemed friendly. The only thing to be aware of is that it is an older property and looks more run down than I had expected. It's still clean and everything worked (except the wi-fi) but expect holes in the blankets, cracked plaster on the ceiling, worn carpet, etc.

I needed a room for a couple of days for I trip I was making and this property came up in my search for the spring dates at a very decent rate. So after looking at the pictures and deciding to take a chance I booked the room.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this property is so much more than I expected for a two star motel. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Each room has a private balcony to watch the sunrise from, which I did. I also ate supper out there too and sat at night prior to turning in.

The amenities are many for this level of hotel. On the beach side they have a large tiled deck with lounge chairs and tables and chairs with umbrellas. The large, clean pool is next to the deck which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. At the opposite end of the deck is a hot tub. I didn't make use of this.

On the bottom floor is the deck and pool area access and that is where the vending is. Kind of a walk but it is all in one place. There's also some arcade games at the same spot. And while walking around I found a shuffle board court just waiting to be used.

The motel has two parking areas, one topside and another underground which protects you from the always changing Florida weather. Also on the grounds is a small coin laundry with two washers and two dryers.

The room I stayed in was a good sized, older style motel room, recently renovated and very clean and new looking. Mine came with two queen beds, a nice table and chairs, a new GE large mini-fridge, and a large Goldstar microwave. I did not peak into the large pine cabinet to check out the TV as I wasn't there to watch television, but to get quiet and read.

The bathroom was on the small size but normal for older properties. It had a full tub, vibrating shower head, and a single sink. And the bathroom has a door for privacy.

Understanding that it's not the Ritz, the Days Inn Tropical Seas is a very simple, clean, and comfortable room at a decent price. And it's only a few steps from Daytona's world famous drive-on beach and the Atlantic Ocean. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the view of the ocean with less noise from the pool and neighbors.

Only was able to stay 3 nights, but enjoyed sitting on balcony and watching the ocean, a thunderstorm travel over the ocean, and everything else there. Room was really nice and clean, coffee in room was great! Will return asap

We stayed for 4 nights and had a much needed relaxing visit. Would recommend this establishment to anyone. Would recommend that you get the higher floors because of the fabulous view from the balconies. The staff were very friendly and was very accommodating.

Room Tip: Get an upper floor!

Fifth year in a row staying here. Older but clean and value for your money. I would suggest upper floors. Some years we are lower and can hear the pool and parked vendors motors if our balcony door is open. Free Wifi included with room rates. I especially like inside safety of all rooms are inside entrances. Must pass thru the lobby to get to your room. A few times the elevator was a longer wait, but not too bad. The staff was wonderful. Check in was easy. Our flight was early I called the hotel and they had our room ready when we got there - which was about 1:30 p.m. (before check in time). Great hotel for relaxing and walking the beach. Nice to have refrigerator and mircowave in the room. If you need anything ask the front desk - they are very helpful. Note: Only shampoo and soap in the room but I called before we arrived to verify shampoo still in the room and she stated we now also offer conditioner. When I got to the room no conditioner. I asked at the front desk and they had it there and also lotion. This area of the ocean is not as crowded as some. I usually go during college break and have never had a problem with this time of year.

Room Tip: Across the street is a Burger King, great ice cream pie. Also, near is a drug store with limited foo...

We stayed for 2 nights in an ocean view room and for the price it just doesn't get any better than this. We booked through a third party and paid about $65 / night including taxes. The room was worth twice that. The ocean view room (south side of property) had a great view. There was a vacant lot next door so there was not another building right on top of you. Got to see a good stretch of beach as well as the pier - lovely (Ocean view was actually nicer than ocean front - took a peek at an unoccupied ocean front room. The Ocean front was a larger room with better layout but the view was not as good; you only got to see a slice of the ocean, not much else.)
The room was a bit small and dated and it is an older hotel but again, for the money we have no complaints.
They had two computers in the lobby which was a plus since I don't have a laptop.
Most Days Inns include breakfast but not this one. Not a show stopper but just keep that in mind if you are expecting breakfast to be included.
The beach of course was the main selling point here. Yes, cars do drive on it but that is true for most of Daytona. What I liked was there was a good stretch of sand that was above water level. In some parts of Daytona the water covers the whole beach, depending on the tide but not here. If you set yourself up about where the cars park you are good for the entire day. Also, beach was clean, no trash or seaweed.
We will return. Our only dilemma is which room type to pick next time - ocean front efficiency with good layout or ocean view with great view.

Definately would return to this hotel. We stayed two nights recently. The staff is very friendly. The room was very clean. The view was incredible. Environmentally conscious.

Room Tip: Definately get an ocean view.
