“Clean, friendly, family run motel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I have been going to Daytona Beach Shores for over 10 years now. I always stay at the Grand Prix. Its a small, affordable,family owned and run motel. It is right on the beach, has a pool, and friendly and accommodating owners. The owners, Billy and Meena, make you feel right at home. The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean and there are oceanview rooms. The pool is heated and the patio has tables, chairs ,umbrellas and lounges. It is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping, and the downtown Daytona area. I highly recommend for anyone looking for affordable comfort in a great setting.

My son, wife and I spent 7 nights in the hotel in July 2012, and it was great.

We rented a room with a kitchenette and the balcony had a great view of the ocean.

It had a medium sized pool and a beach access, which was excellent if you have kids. Also, having the beach just 30 seconds made us spare money. We used to have lunch in the room (it was really really hot a noon on the beach). The pool has table and sunshades. And there's a barbecue that you can use.

The motel is not recent, and the AC too. It is very noisy when put on and didn't cool enough.

Room Tip: Take the rooms near the ocean, on the top floor.

I just got home from a Labor Day getaway to Daytona Beach. I really enjoyed my stay at the Grand Prix. It's not a luxury resort for sure but, it's clean and the rooms are large. The people who run this place are so friendly and helpful. I've never stayed anywhere where the hosts were so nice. The whole atmosphere was laid back and friendly. I had a couple of issues with my room ( A/C related) and Bill went quickly and corrected them. The whole pool and beach area was amazing. All in all...it was a wonderful weekend with good friends and family and whenever I go to Daytona again...Grand Prix will be my place to stay!

We have been going to Daytona Beach Shores for 20 some years now. In 1999, the motel we had been staying at was torn down to build another high rise condominium. Several family members and friends had been meeting for vacation in Daytona in the fall for years. We walked and drove the beach checking all the smaller motels. We found the Grand Prix Motel that year and have been staying there every year since 2000! We like it so much that we haven't even looked at another motel since then. We go twice a year now and always look forward to each trip. If you are looking for a small, affordable,family owned motel, right on the beach, then the Grand Prix is the the place for you! The owners, Billy and Meena, will make you feel right at home. The rooms are comfortable, clean and most have an ocean view. The kitchenette is fully equipped and perfect for a short or extended stay. The pool is clean and heated and the patio has tables, chairs,umbrellas and lounges. A few short steps from the patio and you are on one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world! Since it is right on the A1A, you are close to grocery stores, restaurants, shops and the famous Daytona Beach Pier. What more could you ask for? We have wonderful friends that we met at the Grand Prix, that we see every year. We wouldn't have our "Florida Family" if it wasn't for the Grand Prix. If you are looking for a big, new,impersonal beach resort then this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a small, family run motel where you can relax and enjoy Daytona Beach Shores (and maybe make some new friends), then come and visit Billy and Meena at the Grand Prix Motel! We'll be going back, and soon...Debbie and Robert

Room Tip: South side, 2nd story has a very nice ocean breeze. 2nd story has better view of beach and ocean...

My two sons and I stayed at The Grand Prix from 7/20 to 7/23 of 2012. We had a wonderful time at a great little family friendly hotel. Our hosts, Bill and Nina, as well as the rest of their amazing staff, made our stay a relaxing and fun-fiiled event, with memories that will last a lifetime. Our room was clean, well appointed and fun to be in. The hotel is in the Daytona Shores area and is quieter than the more crowded Daytona Beach. If you are looking for a nice, clean, affordable place, that feels like home, then this is your place. It is situated on a nice clean stretch of beach, which was really a highlight to our trip, as we love swimming in the ocean. The pool was great, well maintained and very clean. We have stayed here before and we will be doing so for many years to come.

Room Tip: We liked the upsairs rooms, because we enjoy the view.

this motel was a great place for my family. total was 7 people. my husband , 3 kids ages 13,9, yrs olds and 8 month old and i. we also brought along my inlaws as well. the rooms were great from what we needed. two rooms of two double beds in the a bathroom in each and a kitchen that had doors to open for joing the rooms. we had our privacy and they had theres and able to flow thru the rooms just fine. the pool is very clean, plenty of tables and chairs. a bbq area, gated, rinse off area. the beach is baby steps away with good location to "set up tent" as we did...we were able to go back and forth pool to beach and didnt feel the need to worry about our things. the lifeguard post is right by us too, big plus with the kiddos and safety. the staff here is great!!! very welcoming, very friendly, anything that is needed they really care and help you out! cant find that to often anymore. over all i love this place and planning on next years stay her :) very clean, quiet, safe, place !!!
