“Great view and Clean rooms”
Reviewed October 13, 2009

This is the second time we have stayed here, the first being last November 2008. This property is an older property that has been newly renovated. The rooms are very clean, with comfortable beds, small kitchenettes with refrigerator, and no mold in the bathroom! The location is great , being beachfront, and the balcony overlooks the pool and beach. It is conveniently located to shopping and restaurants and is right on the main strip (which could be a detriment to light sleepers, although we had no problems, being off-season). Onsite parking, reasonable rates, and friendly staff. Definitely recommended.

Stayed for 1 night and found it to be pretty good. Clean, neat, smelled good, ocean view, secure and safe, not to mention great value for $52. Right on the ocean and within 1/2 mile of restaurants and stores. Very good place to stay.

On the spur of the moment, I decided to stay at a motel overnight on Labor Day as husband wanted to attend a party in another town close by. Did I ever luck out!!! I arrived way ahead of check in time and the gentleman at the front desk kindly explained to me that they had full occupancy the night before so the rooms were not cleaned yet. I apologized to him for his time as after all I was breaking check-in rule hours and did not book in advance. Well darn if he did not check his computer to see if there was at least one room already cleaned to accommodate me. He found one on the the top floor, oceanview. I found a parking spot right by elevator door and went up to check out room. It was perfect except for a stuck sliding glass door that I did not know the trick to get opened. Someone on staff came to help me within 15 minutes. I had a fantastic northern balcony view where I could see the resort next door where everyone was having fun plus lots of ocean view to the right. Even had a refrig!! 2 scary things did happen while staying there. While taking a nap, I woke up to hear scratching on my door. Ended up being a local restaurant sliding a cardboard flyer through on the side of my door. Also the next morn I no sooner got into the shower for a relaxing clean-up when someone started pounding on my door. He afterwards was ranting and raving super loudly around and in the room next door. He finally quieted down and I had bliss once again. Seems I had lots of good and somewhat small amount of bad but would go back again.

Stayed for two nights in August, had a beachfront room with two queen beds and a small kitchenette. The unit was clean, well appointed, and had an unobstructed view of the ocean. Beds were comfortable and the hotel did not smell of mold as so many hotels in the deep south do.

Facing the ocean meant very little street noise and quiet at night. It was too hot to leave the balcony doors open for long, but some wave sound was constant.

A few oddities, one was a lack of a wine bottle opener. Had to go to the front desk and have the clerk open the bottle for us. Also, not wine glasses in the kitchenette. Perhaps a sign that the common guest is more likely to drink beer. Parking spots always available and the staff was efficient and polite all the time.

Business center very limited, one terminal in a hallway off the lobby but free wireless in all the rooms more than made up. Did not try the restaurant, it did seem to have some diners at appropriate times.

Will stay here again on next visit, which is annual as family now lives in the area.

This motel is on the older side, but it is well maintained. They are in the process of painting ( I saw some wet paint signs in a stairwell) and the pool area seems to have been remodeled recently.

We stayed in a kitchenette room with two double beds and an ocean view. There is a little concrete balcony you can sit on. It plenty big enough for two, but four would be a bit close. The beds were comfortable. The carpet and furniture did not look worn. The whole room was clean.

The kitchenette is good enough for what you would be doing in a place like this - preparing some simple meals to save money. There is a 2-burner stove, microwave, sink, apartment size refrigerator, toaster, and a couple of pots/pans. There are plates, glasses and flatware for four.

I did not see into any of the other types of rooms, so can't comment on those.

The pool area is nice and well supplied with lounges to lay on. It provides access directly onto the beach.

There is underground parking as well as a lot in front. The motel sits right on A1A, which has the other things you will want, like restaurants and stores.

The motel has a restaurant on the first floor, but we did not eat there, so I can't comment.

The place seemed to be mostly occupied by families with kids, and things were pretty quiet by 10PM.

Overall, I would stay there again, if I went to Ormond Beach again.

We recently stayed with our 3 children for a weekend (April 24th-26th) for an anniversary getaway and were very pleasantly surprised. Although we did get place in a 4th floor room directly across from the elevator, which made me wary; we heard nothing from anyone around us, including the elevator, the whole stay (even with neighbors that were pretty gregarious). And it was nice - with a toddler that practically needs dragging at times and beach gear for 5 - to be so close to the elevator in the end!
The room was very clean, although as someone else reviewed, they are dark. The beds were great. The carpet decent. None of the worries I usually have.
The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way more than once to accomodate our requests.
The pool was like bathwater it was so warm, which actually surprised my friend living nearby who came to visit. She said they had a cool, rainy week. So the heater in the pool must have been working.
The ocean view room to the side really doesn't have a view unless you crane your neck around the corner, but we know that routine and weren't worried about it. That's standard Daytona.
The beach is incredible! The kids had a great time. It's really in Ormond Beach just north of the city line for Daytona Beach, so there's a little less hustle and bustle.
We got a great deal, so we had no complaints whatsoever. Look for a coupon!
