“Good experience”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This small motel has been recently renovated - the parking area has been recently paved, the exterior has a fresh coat of paint and the rooms are spacious and clean. We were pleased with our choice and would definitely stay here again. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that great so we weren't able to use the pool and lounge area, adjacent to the ocean, however, it was nice to have easy access to the beach for walking. The staff were all very helpful, pleasant and efficient. The breakfast addition is new since we stayed there. I think cereal is a better choice than sweet donuts like some properties offer!

The photos that we saw online didn't look anything like the hotel in real life. The pictures online only showed the hotel from the back angle taken from the beach. When we pulled up to the front of the hotel, we were instantly skeptical. The front of the hotel was shabby and looked like some cheap motel. The hotel staff was rude and unhelpful. The breakfast was inadequate. They only served cheap cereal, donuts, coffee, and watery orange juice. They didn't even have fruit. The hot water in the room only worked SOMEtimes. The hot water in the shower went out several times during our stay. The tub had cigarette burns on it, and it was chipped near the drain. The furniture in the hotel looked cheap and could use some upgrading. The TV needs to be upgraded as well. The TV was a box-style TV, not a flat screen. The DVD player didn't come with a remote. We had to operate the DVD player manually, and the player didn't include a rewind and fast forward button. Laundry bags were not included in the room. We asked the hotel manager at the front desk for laundry bags, and he gave us TRASH bags. There were also hidden fees that we were charged with at the end of our stay. They said that this was for "amenities". There weren't any good "amenities" included in this hotel. The only good thing was the oceanfront view. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Save your money.

We stayed here on the 5th March 2013 for two nights in room 715. We checked in two hours earlier tan the 4pm posted time, and were met by a helpful and attentive Clerk "Ricky". Our room faced the Ocean and was a very comfortable size, with two armed chairs (No Table), a desk and King Size bed. Unusually the Micro, toaster and fridge were contained in a Kitchenette (No Hob) with a separate sink, prep area and plates, glasses and cutlery- great!
The room was also spotless; by far the cleanest room that we have stayed at for some time. The bathroom looked as if it had been refurbished recently -it was that clean.
The "Odd" aspect of this Hotel is that it's all glassed in, so there are no balconies. However as our stay was during an unusual Cold Snap for Florida, we didn't miss a Balcony, but we may have done had the weather cooperated.and the temperature risen above 69F Max.
The Hotel charges a "Resort Fee" of $8/day to cover -well what does this additional fee cover? But you do get Internet and free access to a DVD bank that's located in the lobby to compliment the DVD player that is in each room.
Breakfast is a strange addition. You get included a "Light" continental breakfast payable with vouchers, and served in an area opposite the Hotel breakfast room, for which they charge. The Light Breakfast really is light. Just cereal, porridge and small cakes along with OJ and Tea/Coffee. Why not add a toaster and make a difference?
Outside there is parking, some undercover, a grassed area and large heated pool facing the Ocean. Inside there is a "Fitness Room" with one treadmill, one Nordic style trainer and one flat bike.
This is a nice Ocean front Hotel with great stall and excellent clean rooms. Would we stay here again -maybe not if we needed a Balcony.

Room Tip: The cheaper "Side" rooms obviously don't fully face the Ocean, but side room near the...

Planned a trip for a weekend to meet up with some college friends and booked this room for me and my boyfriend here since it was a few blocks away from where my friends were staying and a decent price/look. Definitely enjoyed our stay! This was the beginning of January and the weather was unfortunately cold and windy so we ended up being in the room a little bit more than originally planned once my friends had left Daytona.

We stayed in a partial ocean view king room. Very spacious and clean! Still got a good view, and I read magazines by the window with drinks to watch the ocean around sunrise and sunset. The pool area is quaint, but definitely worth checking out and you are steps to the beach which is great! Never tried the continental breakfast, and the bar was closed the entire weekend we stayed. I would recommend the Cracked Egg a few miles away for breakfast. Great food, cheap, and friendly service! No problems parking as they have a garage. Also we got free movie rentals (they have a redbox type machine in the front). Since it was cold we spent a night in with a movie. Only con is that you are quite a ways from the pier and all the bars, which was only a hassle walking back after a night out with my friends.

I would also recommend checking out the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and that area when you get a chance. Only like a 15min drive, and after you are done eat at Hidden Treasure! Great drinks, food, and service. Try their cocktails, buffalo chicken dip, and cheesy crab bites!

On our recent trip to Florida to attend the Daytona 500 Car race and to engage in some rest, relaxation and sight seeing Oceanside did not disappoint us. The staff was extremely friendly, professional and attentive . The manger and the desk staff were knowledgeable and extremely courteous.. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable ,a large bathroom very spacious. I thought the in room kitchenette with refrigerator was a great plus. I especially appreciate the saving the planet green suggestion regarding using towels more than once. We had a beautiful ocean-view room that allowed me to sit and see the sights when I wanted some quiet space or time.The continental breakfast was more than adequate. The grounds were kept very clean and the pool area was immaculate. The price was not only fair but the amenities were above average and worked just fine for our needs. It also provided a great stage for pictures of the beautiful sunrises of Daytona. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel located in a great spot near good restaurants and close access to highway. Thanks so much for hosting us and providing us with friendly comfortable atmosphere during our stay! Cannot wait to come again!!

We stayed here during the week of the recent Nascar race. Firstly, anyone reading this, please don't pay attention to any of the negitive reviews you see here. You will miss out on a very good hotel. Before booking this hotel I read the reviews and were a bit skeptical. My travel agent told me that this hotel was quite nice so I went ahead and booked it. Upon arriving at The Oceanside Inn, we both were so surprised. We checked in at midnight due to a late flight but the desk person was very pleasent to us. We stayed on the 5th floor in a standard king room. We had views of both the ocean and the boulavard. ( pics attached ) The room was plenty big and very clean. The bathroom was the same. ( pics attached ) The room had a microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker and safe. Housekeeping looked after us very well and treated our belongings just the same. It states that your bedsheets are only changed on the 7th day of your stay, but slip them a little tip and they will be happy to change them for you when you ask. :) What you read about the continental breakfast is correct, but if anyone knows what a light continental breakfast is they will expect what you get here. ( pic attached ) It consists of 3 types of cereal, milk, tea, coffee, orange juice, hot oatmeal, and either cinn rolls or donuts. All fresh I might add. My suggestion would to maybe drop the hot oatmeal and add a toaster to serve bagels or toast w/jam and maybe add a bit of fruit. It would go over a lot better with the guests i'm sure. There are some complaints about a resort fee....people forget that for that fee they are getting the free breakfast, movie rentals and internet. Our internet signal was perfect everywhere we went in the hotel...5th floor included, and in our opinion is worth every bit of the $5.95. Just about every food establishment around the hotel had free wifi as well. There is an IHOP just a 10min walk up the street and a 7 Eleven across the road. There are a couple of pizza places around too that deliver to your room. Very inexpensive compared to Canada!!! The public transit stops directly infront of the hotel. $3 for a full day pass. 17A or 17B will take you to the transfer station and from there you can go anywhere. Just follow your map. Overall, this hotel is a great place to call home for your vacation. Please view the pics i have attached and make up your own mind. If we visit the Daytona area again, we will certainly stay at The Oceanside Inn again. Thanks so much.

Room Tip: The ocean sideview room had a fair bit of traffic noise especially emergency vehicles. but not too b...

Booked this hotel last minute for $ 60. It is right at the beach (as are all hotels). It looks sloppy at reception, but the room was surprisingly large, good bed and shower. Could have used some more blankets as it was chilly in the room. The heater worked but was noisy. The free breakfast was really a cup of coffee and cornflakes. I would normally qualify it as poor, but because of the low rate, I rate it average.
