Daytona Beach Club Oceanfront Inn
Ranked #55 of 74 Hotels in Daytona Beach
Reviewed February 24, 2008

Booked online in May 2007, stayed in February 2008 for Daytona 500 race. WHAT a disappointment upon arrival, horribly depressing experience. Took over 1/2 hour to check in, clerk NOT able to multitask. Ceiling tiles in lobby were missing, stained and looked like they would fall out. Elevator is old, stinks, and feels unsafe. Hallway carpets were stained and filthy. Room door was beat up and is need of repair. Cold shower first day, tub never drained. Rooms smelled, were "cleaned" daily but dirt was was just shifted around. Bathroom was never cleaned correctly, sheets were never changed. Felt like we should not leave any valuables in the room. Was lead to believe this was a hotel when in fact it is an association with individual room owners. Security was on the premises - which didn't make us feel any more comfortable, in fact more nervous. Smoke detectors did not work, sprinkler heads were painted. Thank goodness we didn't need to spend much time in our rooms or at the "hotel". Our stay was considered miserable - Daytona 500 was awesome!!

I would not recommend this hotel at all. Supposely, hotel has been under construction for some time, although we did not hear or see any effort being made. The place is very dirty. Old is okay, dirty is not. Balconey door was broke, although they did get it open the second day. Balconey window painted shut both inside and out. Kitchnette was covered in sticky residue from previous visitors, including floor, and cabinet handles. Dinette table had old, dried up food stuck to it. Tub had dirt and grime from previous visitors, and remains of an old tub mat stuck to it. Maid never did any cleaning during our week's stay. Maid replaced towels (even the clean ones smelled), emptied the waste basket, and threw the covers back over the bed. She didn't even show up the last full day we were there. We had no clean towels for showers the morning we checked out. The cover on the bed was dirty, old, and smelled. Everything smelled. You can find better quality of bed lines in a thrift store. Pool was open, but pool deck had not been cleaned in some time. Covered with seagull droppings. Vent in ceiling of bath, but no vent fan, just covered a hole in the ceiling. Masking tape around toilet shutoff valve, covering a hole in the wall. Carpet had not been vaccumed, nor was it while we were there. After complaining about the balconey door, and requesting clean towels, hotel staff displayed an attitude. This could be a reasonable place for the money, but they need to learn the definition of CLEANING, and customer service.

WE wanted to go away for a couple of days ....WELL we should have stayed home, very dissapointing. Rooms were very nasty and dirty. Major construction and the noise was terrible. This hotel should be closed while the repairs are being done.
8 couples besides ourselves checked out imm.......
Save your money stay home or book another hotel. Hotels.com states this was mentioned on there site it was NOT!!!!

If you've made reservations here, cancel them!!! This place is NASTY! Renovations to the balconys??? HA! This place has seen 40 years of Spring Breaks, Keg Parties and wet bathing suits. Send the renovation crews home and send in the wrecking ball. Raise this place to the ground and start over.
FILTHY!!

Horrible is the only way to decribe this hotel. There is major work being done which messes up the parking and makes all the ocean veiw rooms on one side completely messed up. No balcony, and the window was do dirty that we could not see out it. There was grocery sacks stuffed around an open pipe in th bathroom and the beds were horrible. They even moved when you did. Of course booking thru an online source made it impossible to get our money back. We did ask if there was any other room, and they were more than happy to charge us 25 more dollars a night for an ocean front room which was the only one they had available. Well it was not much better. The bed was horrible. It was a murphy bed that really felt as if you were sleeping directly on plywood. The sides of the bed were broke and we scraped legs more than once. Also the bedspread was stained with something that looked like blood. This was a surprise anniversay trip planned by my husband and boy was it a surprise. If we had the money we would have left.

Okay we decided to stay here even after the bad reviews. one we got there and seen the front we were worried about our decesion.
The Elevators are terrible and the pool is okay and the beach side looks good after the remodel. We stayed in room 513 a oceanview room no balaconly yet still being constructed. The room had the old hotel smell but overall it wasn't a bad room pretty comfortable great view of the ocean & town. Excellent view of the saturday night fire works. the room could use better windows and the carpet replaced and rugs washed. But we still had a great time there and the price was pretty good. I will post pictures soon.

For about $70 a night I wasn't really expecting a lot BUT this place was so dirty, gross, not even worth staying at for $70 a week. The balcony door would not lock leaving the room insecure so we had to take all valuables with us. The carpets were old and stained. Someone had squashed bugs on the walls and ceiling and they were still there when we checked in. We found an old dirty shirt with blood stains under one bed. The bathroom was dirty and gross. The pool was cloudy. Two small elevators that were so slow and also dirty. I don't think this place is ever cleaned at all. Avoid this place at any price.
