My husband & I were looking for a nice place within budget, no frills. Looked at the reviews on this website, and decided to give this a try. Upon first glance, it looked very clean, a little green gem among the condo high rises. We checked in and were warmly welcomed. The room we stayed in had all new fixtures, ceiling fan, and scotchguarded carpet - - not a speck of dust or stain on anything, even around windows & fan!

Now, if you don't like little kids running around on the porch in front of their parents' room, better not chance the stay. Also, if you're one that can't sleep through the second floor march above you right after the bars close, same. We noted someone at the oceanfront arguing in the later evening, but that sound was remedied by turning on the new ceiling fan and the window unit to drown it out. We didn't encounter any hobos or questionable characters that you may occasionally see walking AIA around Ormond & Daytona. If there were, I suspect that the eagle-eyed day manager would weed them out within a day or two.

The owner was out and about all weekend improving the grounds. It was quite comforting that all was congenial and guests next to you would speak and swap vacation and fishing stories. The presence of the gas grills and outdoor chairs sparked many conversations while we went back and forth to the surf. We would recommend Lenny's NY Pizza (within a mile N AIA) for value and quality of food, if you're tired of cooking in your room!

We can't say enough about the staff. Every encounter had concern interwoven through their conversation. You didn't have to worry about running out of anything or tidying up before the maid came in. They didn't bother you except if running something back to you that you asked for. We felt positive enough about the stay, that we went ahead and booked our return trip before we checked out. Now that we're home, we are already planning out the next trip!

We'll be back to stay with our friends again soon.

I am so tempted to say that this place was horrible just so it can stay our little secret, but I would totally be lying!!! We Love the Sun Deck, and will definitely be back!! My wife and I came up and were a little nervous, the rate was so good we wondered what was up, usually when something seems too good to be true, it usually is! But in this case, we were absolutely delighted! The rooms are just what you need, no frills, mind you, but who needs them when you are there for the beach and to simply relax? The staff was Great, and were genuinely concerned about our comfort, constantly asking if we needed anything when they saw us, but otherwise left us alone. Thanks to Robert and Michelle, we will definitely be back!! Greg and Patty P.

My friend and my choc lab decided last minute to go over night in ormond beach, i asked neighbor who goes all the time and they highly recommened the sun deck to us. My friend and i arrived there early and the staff let us ck in early which was a great plus because of my dog and we wanted to go to beach. The room was very clean and cute. This place has mini kitchen and full size frig, very handy. We had a great veiw of beach, which takes 2 seconds to walk down to, it was beautiful. We will for sure come back again, it was so peaceful and relaxing. Thankyou to the staff for our great stay, it was the best and my dog thanks you tooooo!!!!!!!

My husband and I stayed at the sun deck in june 2010 we were only going to check in for a nite on our way to fort lauderdale whyndom palm aire resort and we ended up staying for our whole honeymoon at the sun deck . we absolutely loved it it was very clean the rooms were decorated tastefully and the staff was very plesant we very much enjoyed the seclusion that we found from the hustle and bustle of most motels the access to the ocean was great we could go out anytime and just walk the beach it was never crowded and the view was amazing it was an all around great stay we will be back year after year we would not stay anywhere else

We went to Ormond to visit a family member and decided to stay the night. This place was $55 for a last minute reservation. For the price it was great. It is small with no pool. But it is right on the beach. Someone wrote on here that all rooms have an ocean view. This is not the case. Only the ones on the end have an ocean view. Our room was clean and had a microwave and refridgerator. It is a no frills kind place. The staff were great. We arrived late and they left a key for us in good faith that we would pay the next day when we check out. I was kind of shocked by this but it worked out great. You can tell it is a family run place.

They do have thin walls. The people above us sounded like a marching band. I think they only slept for 2 hours. So just be warned that if you have loud people around you it could ruin your night.

I am used to staying at nice places so this was a little adjustment. But if you know what to expect when you get there you will be pleased. I would stay there again for sure.

We found the Sun Deck through Trip Advisor and tried it out because we got a tip from Trip Advisor before that turned us on to a wonderful B and B in Albuquerque. We were attracted to the Sun Deck specifically because it was rated number 1 in Ormond Beach and was a great value. We will definitely return next summer and will recommend the place to our friends and family. The motel is older but clean and tidy, a definite no frills place. The kitchenette was well stocked, and along with the gas grills outside, offered us the opportunity to stay within our budget. We enjoyed being only steps away from the beach and across the street from a grocery store! We also enjoyed meeting and talking to the other guests. We loved the peaceful atmosphere of Ormond Beach, too. However, the best part of our stay was this: our son left his ipod tangled in the sheets of one of the beds, the hotel staff found it, and when we called to inquire after it, Michelle offered to mail it to us! That's what you're getting with the Sun Deck!

We couldn't have been more delighted to stumble upon the Sun Deck Motel. It was very affordable, extremely clean and the people working there treated us like friends. Every room has a view of the ocean! We would much rather support a family owned business like the Sun Deck, than go to an impersonal chain hotel, like those surrounding it. We would definitely go back, and we encourage friends and family to do the same!
