It's a Day's Inn, which should set the stage for expectations regarding amenitites. It was a simple and clean room, which is all that can/should be expected from the brand. However this hotel does what every hotel should - and that is to make sure that the experience of staying there exceeds the standard. Mission Accomplished.
The location was perfect (for us). My girlfriend and I wanted a couple of days of relaxation before heading into Orlando for a couple of very busy days. I imagine that we'd have been a little disappointed if we stayed a mile north where it was much busier. The location is quiet and serene. Our view and the accompanying lack of crowd noise was utter bliss. The hotel is literally ON the beach. As soon as we entered our room we opened the sliding glass door to view the ocean, and I don't think we closed it during our 3-day stay. Crabby Joe's (a restaurant on the pier) is a 2 minute walk along the beach and was one of the highlights of our time there.
But lets face it. There are a ton of options that could give you what I just described. Daytona Beach Hotel. Clean Room. Nice View. Etc. I want to say that the differentiator here is the service. It's fantastic! Eddie was responsive, friendly, informative, and never gave you the "ho-hum" attitude that is so easy to come by in properties like this. I recommend this hotel highly. I guarantee you that I'll be back, and think you will have a great experience too.
This one is too obvious... Beachside!!
