we spent alot of time choosing as hotel. good reviews, ammenities, comfortable beds, price and how the front desk handles my inquiry's are my criteria for choosing a hotel. the first time I called the sunviking the front desk was so rude I almost booked another place. after calling several more hotels I tried them again a few days later the girl was fantastic. We booked for 5 days based on the price (in relation to the other oceanfront properties) and the fact that they had a waterslide. When we got there we noticed the place isnt as nice as the website would have you believe but it is well maintained and clean and all the staff we met were fantastic. I didnt like being asked at my arrival to give recommondations to friends and family I am not an advertising agent. My boys loved the place we spent many hours in the pool and beach. the rooms are dated but comfortable. the elevators are fast and the relaxed atmosphere of the place is worth every penny. too many times at other hotels we are bombarded with rules we cant enjoy ourselves. my boys 13,12,10, went on there own to the pools and waterslide and we felt safe and secure. I was going to book another night and was hoping for a great rate since the hotel was not busy and we had already gave over $500 but the discount was very little so I booked elsewhere. Next time we are at Daytona Beach we will stay again. Thanks for a great week at Daytona
