“Love Being So Close to the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Stayed here three nights during Biketoberfest. Hotel goes out of their way to accommodate trailers and motorcycles. We had a kitchenette with a full-size fridge, stove, and table/chairs for four. Balcony looks directly onto beach...with many bikes in Daytona for the week, we never heard them since we were on the beach-side. Also could look into parking lot & keep an eye on the bike. Beds were very comfy, but sheets were older & limp - I prefer mine newer & crisper. The olympic-size pool was very refreshing. Had dinner one night @ hotel - it was fine. Free breakfast menu includes variety - eggs, sausage, cereal, danish, toast, oatmeal, juices. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing ocean are definitely quiet.

We stayed at the Aku Tiki this past week. All of the employees we encountered from the maids to the restaurant workers were friendly and helpful. The pool was clean and the free breakfast was good(eggs, sausage, pancakes, fruit, etc). Free happy hour in the evening with $5 baskets of appetizers was also a good deal. Can't beat the view! IHOP, grocery store, and mini-golf within walking distance. We would stay there again.

I found the rooms to be large in size and very clean. Enjoyed the pool and the sitting area. In the morning they have cookies in the lobby and a descent free breakfast. The breakfast menu is the same every day. They offer free cocktails in the restaurant which was enjoyable. The location is perfect and the staff was very friendly and helpful with information concerning the area. I would stay here again.

My stay at the Best Western Plus was highlighted by the cleanliness of the rooms. The overall experience was fantastic- from the friendliness of the staff, to the location, to the value of bang for your buck. But all-in-all- I wanted to let the TripAdvisor community know that if you are looking for a pristine and clean venue to stay, this is the place to be!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a great review. The staff at the Best Western PLUS Aku Tiki takes pride in keeping the hotel in top shape. We also think that we are one of the best values on the beach - from our sparkling clean rooms and common areas, to our great food in Trader's Restaurant, to our Tiki Bar and pool area . . . . we are happy that you enjoyed it and hope to see you again soon!

A group of us took a weekend trip to Daytona Beach and had the best experience at the Best Western Plus Aku Tiki Inn. The staff was so polite. Our room was clean and homey. And the pool/beach area was outstanding. Sun bathing by the huge pool with music playing and bubbles blowing in the air from a fan that the bartender controlled made the afternoon. Thanks to all of the employees for making our vacation getaway so enjoyable. We will be back soon..

What a lovely time we shared at this hotel yet again. All of my penpals and I got together and they stayed at the tiki and I bunked with them. This is one of my favorite places to stay, it's just lovely with the warm soft beds and the comforting sounds of the ocean. It really is lovely and such a short walk to the diner where they are so kind and flirtatious with me even though I know they are just shining on me because of my age and tips.

I recently spent a weekend away in Daytona Beach with some friends. They recommended this location because they had stayed here before, and thankfully I took their advise. The room had a great view of the beach!!! I spent most of the next day at their pool. There was a bar by the pool that made great frozen drinks, I reccomend the Pina Colada. When it was finally time to eat we went to their attached restaurant for dinner. The food was great. I had an amazing cheeseburger. After dinner, I spent the evening seeing the other sites around the area. All around, a great weekend!
