“Older hotel, but decent.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We stated here for one night using a free nights stay and found the hotel to be ok. It is older but not dirty. We used the pool the night we got there and liked that. The rooms are old and need of some TLC. We like to stay in nicer hotels but didn't have much choice to use our free night we got from our trip out west during the summer.

I would never stay here again. We did not like Daytona at all. In the morning we went to walk on the beach and there was garbage everywhere. Diapers, plastic plates/cups/silverware, toys, just junk everywhere. Not somewhere I would ever go again.

Room was decent size, tv hardly worked (loud buzzing noise, seemed like it would explode), ok for an old hotel.

Face it, Daytona Beach is a tired strip of barrier island that has seen better days. We were in town for the 24 Hours of Daytona (sportscar race) and just needed a place to sleep out of the noise that was not too expensive. We were pleasantly surprised. The woman who checked us in was exceedingly friendly and accomodating. I had a problem with the room I had been assigned (next to the elevator) and ended up in a rather large room with a balcony almost over the beach. Every room has a balcony with a great view. I mostly appreciated the cleanliness of the facility. No musty hotel smell that is sometimes detectable in a seaside establishment. The room was not the newest, bathroom certainly not the biggest, breakfast not the best. But I saw friends' hotel rooms in other establishments in Daytona Beach and I heartily recommend the Aku Tiki.

Once again my husband and I returned to Daytona Beach, Florida. Stayed at the Aku Tiki again. It was great as usual, can't say enough about the amenities and the staff. We've stayed at a lot of places on the beach and this is by far the best place to stay when you are in Daytona. Beautifully kept grounds, huge pool, hot breakfast, happy hour, full service restaurant. What more could you want?

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed here for a few days in early January. The rooms were clean and we had a great view of the ocean. The rooms are angled so that many of them give you an ocean view. The staff was very friendly and the price was decent. There is a convenient store across the street that is open very early in the morning and late at night. They give you a free breakfast that is satisfactory. The days we wee there were rainy and cool, but they have a heated pool that would have been useful if the weather would have been better. All in all, I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 510 was very close to ocean front without paying the price.

The 2 % milk on the buffet is only slightly reduced in fat, it is not a low fat milk. 1% or fat free are truly low fat.
Otherwise, the food was good.
Having a small kitchen was very useful.
Using AAA was also helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay. Even though our room wasn't facing the ocean, the way the balconies were positioned allowed us to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Appreciated the front desk who recommended places for sight-seeing. Nice pool. Enjoyed watching sunset in the lounge chairs that were on the sea wall facing the ocean. Breakfast was very good, even with a very crowded dining room. Very few people ate supper there so there were few choices on the menu and one server for the entire dining room.
