Best Western Castillo Del Sol

Reviewed May 24, 2013

When we first got settled into this room, we thought it was pretty great for the price. The building is older and this isn't an upscale place, but the rooms were clean, kitchen was fully stocked and decent, and the pool was huge (which we liked). I thought this might become a regular place for us. But then the night came and trying to sleep well was impossible. The beds are cheap, hard, and need to be replaced. You can't skimp on beds. Sorry. I could barely sleep and I felt my husband tossing and turning all night. And I usually sleep well in nicer hotels with better beds (and at home in a good bed). So trying to save money wasn't worth the savings given the horrible beds. We were also very disappointed that they allow smoking on the pool deck, which ruins the experience for non-smokers. This hotel would have been a 3 with better beds and a 4 if they didn't allow smoking on the pool deck and had better beds. Otherwise I would stay away if you want a good nights' sleep.

Room Tip: Maybe ask if they have rooms with newer beds?? I doubt that would help. I would just stay somewher...

Excellent place on the beach. The ocean side rooms are wonderful! You can open your sliding glass door to your private balcony to hear and see the ocean waves. We had such a wonderful time that we stayed an extra night.
My husband is a diabetic and we were happy to see that the breakfast has many choices of protein (scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon) as well as carbs (muffins, toast, fresh pancakes).
The ocean side rooms have a fridge with freezer, microwave, and stove top. We never used them since the utensils were sparse.

Excellent price for the ocean front rooms and awesome views. Quiet if not on the weekends. Pool is nice but deserves a better cleaning. Right at the beach so be aware of traffic during weekends and holidays.
In my opinion it's better than the Hilton comparing price similar room quality.

Spent 3 nights at this Hotel. Nice room with comfortable bed. Staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay as good as possible, even ran out to a store and bought sparkling wine and balloon which my husband had requested as a surprise for our anniversary.

Room Tip: would ask for beach view as the other side has no special view

Everything was great and we plan on booking again in August. The room was really nice and the oceanfront view was spectacular. The hotel in general was very nice. The pool area was beautiful. We really liked the section that was under a roof, so we could stay out of the sun. All of the staff we came in contact with, was nice and very friendly.
The complimentary breakfast was great too.

Room Tip: Ocean front is worth every penny.

The hotel was great....Far enough from the main part of Daytona that the beach was still private but close enough that you could still see the sites. The staff was super helpful and friendly and the complimentary breakfast buffet was better than going out. I would recommend a ocean view on the first floor - you have a patio right out to the pool area and only steps away from the beach.
