Vacation in tropical oasis at Polynesian-themed Daytona oceanfront inn
A Polynesian theme resonates at the Best Western Aku Tiki Inn – think bamboo, Tiki torches, colorful Hibiscus, and an indoor-outdoor pond with Japanese goldfish. The hotel’s tranquil oceanfront setting is enhanced by the outdoor pool complex, free fresh-baked cookies and a nightly cocktail reception. The family-friendly hotel offers summer kids programs, including scavenger hunts, movies and pool games.
Highlights
  • Breathtaking oceanfront location
  • Complimentary cookies and cocktail reception
  • Summer kids activities
  • Polynesian décor with indoor-outdoor pond
  • Free high-speed Internet access
Location
Best Western Aku Tiki Inn guests are minutes from Daytona attractions, including golf courses, a water park and Daytona’s famous speedway. The quaint Ponce Inlet is teeming with waterfront restaurants, and home to the third tallest lighthouse in the U.S. and the Marine Science Center.

Disney theme parks, Kennedy Space Center and Universal are easy day trips. All are within 80 miles and easily accessible by nearby interstate highways.
Rooms
The 132 guest rooms at the Best Western Aku Tiki Inn stick to the Polynesian theme with bright fabrics and eclectic furnishings. All rooms have microwaves, refrigerators, satellite TV, pillow-top beds and free wireless Internet access. Some guest rooms have full kitchens, and balconies with pool and ocean views.
Features
Surfers won’t find Hawaii-size waves on the beach in front of the Best Western Aku Tiki Inn, but surfing is still a popular Daytona Beach activity. Kids will spend hours swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and searching for that perfectly formed sand dollar. The hotel’s oceanfront pool has a large deck surrounded by tropical flora.
Dining
For fresh seafood and an “Old Florida” atmosphere, take a short drive over the Port Orange bridge to Aunt Catfish’s.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

Make it a party by the pool at the hotel! Food is great, drinks are good and not insanely priced, and the staff is great! You can enjoy your night and don't have to worry about driving!

Comfortable & Clean Hotel

The room and bathroom were both well cleaned, and the bed comfortable. We had an ocean/beach view and balcony. Parking was easy and only a couple of miles from the main area of Daytona beach (though not quite sure where the centre is?) We just stayed one night as a stopover and left early the next morning so didn't use the restaurant. There are other eating options available in the town including an OK Greek restaurant.

Basic Florida beach hotel

This is an older but generally well-maintained hotel with a pleasant staff; our only complaint was the dampness in the room. Even though the a/c ran very cool, the room never really dried out...my husband and I woke up on dank sheets and with stuffy heads, from the dampness. Other than that, the room was attractive and clean (with a micro/fridge and coffee maker included); the pool area is quite nice (if you can take the REALLY loud bar music), and the breakfast buffet in the attached restaurant was nothing special, but certainly filling. The beach was lovely, of course! Please note: An oceanVIEW room is not the same as an oceanFRONT room. But, unless you like loud music, you might want to pass on the poolside rooms...then again, maybe my husband and I are just a couple of geezers! You might like being right where the action is.

The nearby Red Lobster serves a killer shrimp scampi! And, of course, their too-die-for cheese biscuits...nom nom.

Last minute family getaway

This was a very nice place to stay. Kids enjoyed ameneties including free breakfast every morning, ping pong, shuffle board, and of course the pool and easy access to the beach. We had a nice view from both sides of the hotel. The staff was laid back and accomodating. It isnt in the center of all the bars and shops just about 2 miles away which is nice for families. Hotel is older needs some updating and the 5th floor has some smoking rooms which makes it smell bad. I would advise not to stay on that floor if you don't like smoke! Overall, wehad a great time and really enjoyed our stay. We would go back again.

The Ocean Deck was a cool place to dine or party! It was right on the ocean and had a live band and awesome drinks! Definetly check it out if you are in Daytona!

Nice stay in Daytona

Room was very clean. Excellent access to beach. Would have rated at the top for staff but 1 guy in bar was really rude about the happy hour special which they were advertising. ALL other staff were friendly, helpful and always greeting us with a smile. I will definetly go back if we're in the area again.

Try Down The Hatch a reasonable drive down A1A in Ponce Inlet. Dine by the river outdoors or riverview indoors. Don't miss the fish dip! You may even see porpoises up close at dinner time. Call for their "dining time" in the evening.
