“Would love to come back here...”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We needed a one-nighter in the Ormond Beach area. Based on "bruce h" review, we chose the Sun Deck. I loved his description of a "stay reminiscent of Florida from the 50s or 60s..." as I loved the old mom-and-pop motor court atmosphere. As bruce said, it's not for the luxury seekers or those who can't stay anywhere that is not pristine and new, but we loved it. The little touches were not overlooked: plates, glasses and utensils provided and stored on top of the microwave, even with a little bottle of Dawn dishwashing detergent. Coffee pot with coffee provided. Great price. Nice little chairs with a table outside of each room. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Loved the old tongue-and-groove woodwork. Wonderful pier right down to the waterfront. Parking is a little tight if you have a large vehicle. Such a classic. I walked out in the morning to take some photos of the sunrise and spent a great deal of time talking to a gentleman from Jacksonville who was staying the weekend with his wife. He said that they come down (90 miles) several times a year and always stay at the Sun Deck. To me, that says it all -- a local who frequents.

1st off, this is not for the yuppies, guppies or luxury seekers. BUT if u want a stay reminiscent of Florida from the 50's or 60's but with TV and wifi, this is the place. Warm and friendly staff. Room 211 is a wonderful ocean front room with double beds and a full kitchen, average size bathroom, but with a tremendous view of the ocean. No pool, but what the heck! There is a massive ocean out front! This is the way to go.

Love this place. It was clean the staff was amazing and the location is great. You couldn't beat the p rice either. This place is right on the ocean. If you are looking for a fancy place with a lot Prof amenities then this place is not for you. But if you are looking for a quiet comfortable great priced place with the basic amenities then this place is for you. Nice family run operation with newly renovated rooms. We are already planning our next trip here.

My family and I have stayed at the Sundeck for at least 15yrs every Memorial Day weekend! This property has always been clean and well maintained and the owners are wonderful! They have accomodated our growing family with ease! We bring with us about 10 kids(5 or 6 different families) and it is so nice to know that we will not be shushed for letting them be kids! They are always ready with a smile, a kind word, and clean towels! Lord knows we use enough! They don't mind us leaving our beach toys and chairs outside our room. We do a cookout one night on the grill they provide and it is always nice to see the kids not attached to their electronics or the TV. This is NOT a Hilton nor would I want it to be! It fits because it is FAMILY run and oriented!

We like the mom and pop places and this one is better than several we've visitied on the east coast of FL. The rooms have all been updated and were spotless. The beach is only a few steps away. Other places we visited had never been painted, updated, nor had new furnishings. Sundeck had all the comfort of the big hotels, but not the hassle of parking far from the room, elevators, etc. Everyone was friendly, we had all the clean linens we wanted, and the location to restaurants, groceries, etc was great. We are going back next week, our second visit.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in the middle and could see the beach. Next week we will be in the fir...

Sundeck Motel is a perfect example of what a classic hotel should be. From the very first call to reserve a room to the final check out we were made to feel like family. I can not truly remember staying at a better place than Sundeck. We stayed in two different rooms and both were great locations: view, waves/ocean sounds and perfect sunrise. The rooms are as clean as you can get them and the staff is on top of any services you need. This family owned and operated hotel was more than accommodating with all our needs and wants. The area is very very close to shopping, food and entertainment. Ormond By the Beach is a short distance from St. Augustine, Daytona, the Cape and even Silver Springs. We plan to go back asap!
