We stayed here on a saturday through a monday in July.
The Good- The hotel has nice finishes and the room we stayed in was clean, well designed and fairly up to date. I liked that it had a small kithcen as opposed to just being a hotle room. The pool is beautiful and there are lots of amenities such as beach towel service, kids activities, two indoor pools, a nice gym, snack bar at the pool, etc. Daytona also puts on a great fireworks display every friday night that you can see from your balcony.
The BAD- Its a timeshare and they will pressure you to buy a timeshare. They will run your check in credit card info to access your credit report and then offer you financing for the timeshare. Thinking of buiying a time share? Ask a realtor if thery really are a "great investment". I am very much opposed to buying them, but I love to rent from teh people that do own them. But back to the review....
Also, be preparred for a horrible check-in experience. Lines and waiting.
Other Guests- There were a lot of other guests. The pool and lazy river were so crowded that it made me not want to get in. This was likely due to us going at the most busy time of year- Im sure its probably not as crowded in the fall/winter. There were way more smokers than I am used to. I have a new baby, so I was not happy to be surrounded by smokers in the pool area. Daytona seems to be trying to move past thier "bike week" reputaiton and attract more families throught the year. The guests at the hotel were representative of this transition. It was not uncommon to see guests in the elevators with open containers in the evening, but no one seemed to be overindulging or acting in an offensive manner.
-If you book via a "third party" like orbitz or kayak or hotels.com be sure to confirm your reservation. There was a "glitch" in our reservation and if I had not called to confirm we would have gotten there and not had a room
-They say check-in is at 4, but the earlier you arrive the better and more likely you are to recieve the oceanfront you booked. You can "pre-check in" any time and then show you your ID in ANOTHER line after 4 to get your room key. I suggest waiting until 5 to get the key so the line dies down.
-When returning from the pool/beach, go down to the lower level and get on the elevators at the LL level. You will skip the wait on the main lobby level and not have to parade the lobby in your swim suit. Expect long waits at the elevator at check in.
- Get a great rate by booking your room through someone who owns a timeshare there. there are a bunch of timeshare rental sites where owners post. When we stayed they were asking $900 for a 2 bedroom for a week as a last minute deal. If you can go last minute, you might be able to get a deal.
