Great views from oceanfront rooms. Good balconies. The kitchenettes are fairly well stocked, with full range (4 burners and an oven) although the burners inevitably tilt. :-) Full-sized coffeemaker is a nice touch! Ice-cube trays in the fridge. Some of the rooms have huge, senseless units of some kind -- they are about four feet wide, three feet deep, and...

This is our second time staying here and I cannot stress enough how great it is. The rooms are clean and comfortable, amazing view of the ocean, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and best of all, walks on the beach. Lots of parking space, rooms cleaned daily & fresh towels and linen replaced. A terrific place for the whole family...

To be completely honest, when we first got out of the car I was a little worried. The outside could definitely be cleaned up. But the staff we checked in with were very friendly. We got to our room and instantly inspected for bed bugs and there was no trace of them. It's not the nicest hotel I've stayed at,...

If you're not on spring break (or in that age group), please don't stay here. The entire facility is rundown, dirty, smelly & just outdated. The place needs to be gutted. The furniture is all chipped & broken. The bathroom is just plain disgusting. Shower curtain moldy, no stopper for the drain, etc. etc. etc. Had a room with a...

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...

Not only are the pictures on the website deceiving the place is deplorable! We drove from the west coast of Florida for a overnight stay. This place was so dirty and run down we left and drove back home after spending the day at the public beach a few doors down. Judging by the looks of this place I believe...

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...
