“Clean hotel with a great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Tropical Winds is an older hotel, but is very well kept and clean. The beds are comfortable and we slept well. The outdoor pool is cleaned every morning and it's nice that there is an indoor pool for rainy days. Miss Gwen at the front desk is very knowledge of the area and helpful. We had an oceanview room, but it was still gorgeous to look out over the ocean, even if we had to be at an angle. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a trip to Daytona Beach.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our beds were just replaced a few months ago and we are getting a lot of comments about how comfortable they are. As you mentioned, the indoor pool is a big asset when we do get our afternoon showers in the summer.
Thank you for your nice review and I hope to welcome you back to Tropical Winds in the not too distant future.

The hotel was excellent and Gwen at the front desk will absolutely make your day with her cheerful and outgoing personality. While staying at the hotel I only had one problem. When I was passing through the lobby one afternoon one of the male staff members, I believe he was maintenance, was speaking to another staff member, a woman, and he used the f*** numerous times. With children passing through the lobby, not to mention other guest, this was very rude and disrespectful. The male staff member, who used the language, was wearing a blue shirt, and had darker skin. I would really like to come back to Tropical Winds and see him replaced with someone with a better attitude and with more respect for the guest of the hotel. Overall the rest of the staff were great especially Gwen, but that one staff member certainly makes me second guess staying at Tropical Winds.

First of all I would like to thank you for staying with us and letting us know that you enjoyed your vacation and that employees like Ms Gwen contributed to this. As you can see from previous reviews, we get nothing but great comments about the friendliness of our staff. Therefore the incident you mentioned is such a shock to me and is totally unacceptable. Please let me assure you that this has been addressed and will never occur again. I just wished you would have brought it to my attention during your stay and it would have been handled immediately.I am glad that you enjoyed yourself otherwise and hope that you will give us another chance in the not too distant future.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Daytona. The welcome from the lady at the front desk was phenomenal, the room was a great size, the conveniences were outstanding. ..indoor and outdoor pool AND right in front of the beach/ocean. Location was perfect. I can't say enough good things and I can't wait to return!

We decided to book with TWOH for two reasons: reviews of the employees and price. For our 3 night stay, it was quite nice and the employees were very friendly (especially Gwen, Happy Birthday!).

Now the hotel is aging, no doubt. But everything worked and was comfortable. There was some rust on the hinges, the stove older, electrical wall plates were a little askew, the sliding door squeaked, the carpet was older. But none of that really mattered. There was no fungus or mold, the shower was hot, the towels were plentiful, the A/C kept us cold, the TV channels were plentiful, the kitchen was awesome, the balcony view was perfect, the pool was warm and the employees were wonderful!

Other things not really advertised: one of the beach lifeguard positions is right outside the hotel. Seems to have plenty of parking. We never had a problem getting a spot. Shuffleboard court is there for play. Lots of dinning facilities as well as Publix is nearby.

The only downside are smokers. (sorry smokers, don't like to smell it and it's unhealthy). We were on a non-smoking floor which was great. But when i went out on the balcony, we could smell it wafting around from all over.

I would recommend this hotel and would go back. The 3 on the property rating was because it's older. I'd give my whole experience there a 5 out of 5.

Room Tip: 7th floor is non-smoking and had great view of the beach.

I greatly appreciate your nice comments about our hotel. I am glad you realize how difficult it is to keep up a beach property. Our maintenance and housekeeping staff work very diligently to keep our rooms in tip-top shape. We recently replaced the carpets in 90% of our rooms and have a few more to do working around summertime high occupancy figures. Seems like you ended up in a room with the older carpet, but by your next visit all rooms will be finished.
I apologize for the smoke wafts from other balconies. We have reduced our smoking rooms to just one floor and hope to be smoke free at some point in the near future. It is nice to hear that you, as so many others booked with us due to previous guest reviews about the friendliness of our staff.
Thank you again and hope to welcome you back to Tropical Winds very soon.

The oceanfront room was just beautiful.better than I could have imagined..everything looked brand new.we stayed for 4 nights..and a few times ate in the restaurant in the building. We were pleasantly surprised at the terrific food and service there. Very reasonable too. We enjoyed all who worked at the restaurant...they treated us like family, we loved joking and kidding with them...made us feel at home. Also front desk girls were terrific! We especially enjoyed Gwen....very informative and helpful..and again, treated us like family.Prices were reasonable in the room and the meals....we can't wait to stay here again...this will be the only place we stay while in Daytona...

Room Tip: Oceanfront is the best

I will pass your nice comments on to the cafe personnel - they keep us laughing also and so does Ms. Gwen. We have recently updated our rooms and it is nice to hear that our efforts of keeping the property up are appreciated.

When we arrived we had an extra person and they did not charge us for the rollaway. The rooms were recently updated and were very clean. Nice kitchenette. The staff were EXCELLENT. The maintenance man unhooked and stored the storage rack from our vehicle and reattached it when we were ready to leave. They offered us a later checkout. They called and got us discounts at area attractions. Miss Gwen at the front was awesome.
If they had a hot tub it would be the complete package.
The hotel is just over a mile from the board walk area. It is a great walk down the beach. We got great breakfast service at IHOP from Boni, the one right at the boardwalk.
We waited 2 hours for a pizza at the Roof on top of Joes crab shack, only to be told the pizza oven was shut down. The food at Bubba Gump was good but the service was slow, expensive drinks. If you go paras ailing it paddle boarding go to Ponce Inlet just across from the lighthouse. I have paddle boarded twice, there and on the river at Three Brothers (they advertise seeing dolphins and manatees at the river). It was a waste of money, one of our group turned around and gave up because you fight the current and have to get around the loop the guide, Eric, leads and sometimes misleads you on. He did not try to make it fun at all. You will LOVE the fun at Ponce Inlet, then you can eat at the beach right next door.
