“Not the worst, not the best”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Not a bad place for the price considering you're right across the street from the ocean at an access. I would stay again but in a non-smoking room. Average pricing. Was pleased to be able to stay on the beach for less than $50.00.

Room Tip: I'd go for a nonsmoking room unless you're a smoker.

You get what you pay for. This place is fine if you're not picky. It's convenient and across from the beach. My room was clean and had everything I needed. The employees were nice enough. The motel is, however, slightly sketchy and there are prostitutes that walk down the street around the motel. I am a female and stayed there alone - the area is busy enough that even with the sketchy parts about it, it was still fine and I didn't feel unsafe.

My husband and I thought we were being smart money wise staying here. When my husband went to check us in, he said the manager wasn't there- his little boy was working....By looking at this place on the outside, we tried to have some hope. When we got in, we had to laugh to keep from crying. There was no fitted sheet. Just a sheet spread across the bed with a comforter on top. Mattress showing. Bathroom gross. Non smoking room that smelled like cigarettes. Stains. I don't care who you are or what trip you're going on, find something better. It was awful. We are just now able to joke about it without getting mad or annoyed. Nothing wrong with paying $$$ for staying in a clean, safe place. Lesson learned!

I wanted to enjoy a wknd by myself so I booked me a room at the San Marina Motel. My room was so small you could turn around 2 times and everything was at a fingers touch. My ac only worked when plugged in. My comforforter had so many cigarette burns they should have replaced it with a new one. Towels were not completely white. Thank God I bring clorox clean-up to every trip I go on (even the Marriott) because I would have been scared to use toilet shower sink, etc. The room looked like a crime scene room. You knw the rooms where u find the chalk outline in them? Yea that bad. The pool was good and my friends room was ok I guess I jus had a bad break I guess. A lesson learned and no I won't be staying here anymore.

I never go by the hotel reviews on TA, must be most people live in glass houses, I do not. Booked 3 night on expedia for the last leg of the trip, I booked the cheapest room I could find on the beach, ever though the way everyone talked I was going to be mugged, got a smoking room for 35 bucks, place looked neat when we checked in, the desk guy asked, you want a smoking room, I said no but getting low on funds so just saving the extra money for beer, he said I'll give you the non smoking room, room was small neat and clean, 2 beds, mimi frige, microwave and flat screen tv, bathroom tidy and stocked with towels, pools was the best we had on the trip, huge and clean, beach was across the street, 75 yards, sat out one night and drank a bottle of wine on our swing in front of the room, enjoyed time with other guest from Michigan who brought a group of pleasnt teen girls to the beach, talked for an hour with the owner and he gave us many tips for Daytona, had so much fun we didn't want to leave, walked everywhere late into the night never with one bit of worry, we will return.
