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.
