“GREAT LOCATION AND WONDERFUL VIEW!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We have an oceanfront room that is spacious, clean and has a balcony! Quite frankly, what more do you want in Daytona but to be on the beach! We love Best Westerns and the service is consistent, they don't charge extra for parking and free wi-fi/breakfast is included. This hotel is central and you can't beat the view. Who doesn't love the sound of waves crashing lulling you to sleep?

Room Tip: Ask for the oceanfront - definitely worth the few $$ more.

We have stayed here, probably 7-8 times, and enjoyed every stay. We normally use it as a base for the 'Turkey Rod Run' at the track. The restaurant is good, the staff are great, and the views are amazing. Just fall out of bed onto the beach, or into the pool! We stayed somewhere else last time, and really missed the Aku Tiki!

The location, service, price, free breakfast and cleanliness were all a plus on this trip. The front desk staff was even kind enough to send a fax for me at no charge. We would definitely stay here again.

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.
