This was a last minute trip to bike week. Old, well used up hotel has seen better days. For $240 a night I expected a little better. If it was $100 a night I wouldn't complain. I traveled alone ,so basically it was a place to sleep and shower, water pressure good and nice hot water. I dropped something on...

Went for spring break/bike week, and I have never been around so many people who smoke. They say its no smoking, but thats only in the room. The best part of this place was the fact that it was on the ocean. The website is DECEIVING! It is not a resort, it is a motel at best. The kitchenette was...

The photos are fake, this place is not what's shown, so if you plan low cost, this place is that it's on the beach outside of that it's not that good. Back in the 50s or 60s yes today it is substandard. Pool is dirty, elevator may work, may not. The $229.00 per day charge is the owners gigging us...

We recently stayed 10 nights and it was wonderful. Rooms great,some things dated but that's the history of Daytona Beach. Wonderful breakfast every morning. Beautiful warm pool. Everyone working there had a smile on their face. Very clean rooms with tile floors.

This hotel appeared fine for a budget hotel in Daytona. The staff was friendly when we checked in. We were assigned a lock-out room. I had quiet neighbors so it was not a problem for me. My friends had a family connected to them with quite a few youngsters. They were having fun and a birthday. It sounded like a...

Hi, my name is Mugsy. I got burnt by Groupon. The pics they posted must have been from when this relic first opened. The place needs repairs badly and a good cleaning and new paint. We had to use our white stained towels to soak up the shower leak. The walls are paper thin and there was "stuff" all over...

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel in Ormond Beach. We get an ocean front view from a second-floor balcony room that is unbelievably low priced for the location. The hotel has a breakfast offering in the mornings until 10:00 AM. The rooms are clean enough and comfortable. They may need a little updating but the...

This place was the worst place I have ever attempted to stay at. I cannot call this a hotel as I feel that would be an overstatement and misleading to anyone who would even think to go there. The sheets that were supposed to be white were a mix of yellow and beige, the floor was full of other peoples...

This property is in deplorable condition. Don't be fooled by the pictures on their website. You will see mold, mildew, chunks out of the bathroom walls and ceilings and the rooms are filthy. Not only that, but the toilet rocked from side to side and right beside it was.......wait for it........a plunger!!!! You do not want to stay here. Ever.
