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.
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.
Dining
For fresh seafood and an “Old Florida” atmosphere, take a short drive over the Port Orange bridge to Aunt Catfish’s.
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.
Property 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.

A great beachfront hotel experience

As residents of Orlando, we were searching for the perfect 2 night "stay-cation" in a beachfront hotel property. The Best Western Aku Tiki caught our attention because of its location, free breakfast, free internet and free parking. Little did we know what an amazing room we would get nor the additional amenities that would be offered. We were greeted by incredibly friendly staff and were told about "happy hour" which was held in the attached Traders restaurant. There, we were offered free alcoholic beverages including draft beer, house wines and wells with a mixer from 5:30pm-6:30pm with proof of room key. In the morning, breakfast was also held in the Traders restaurant. It was one of the best free hotel breakfasts I've ever had. We stayed in room 201 which had an absolutely amazing view of the beach. From standing in the kitchenette area, it literally looked like we were on a cruise ship facing the ocean. The beds could have been more comfortable (a bit stiff), but the rest of the room was incredibly clean and comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Daytona Beach!

Clerk lied to us. Wouldnt recommend.

We had reservations for 3 nights. When checking in she said only had a room one on 1st floor and one on 2nd floor on overlooking the Parking lot side. That All other rooms were booked up. I found out they had plenty of rooms available all 3 nights. They were holding the better rooms hoping for walk ins. Since we had reservations they could put the less desirable rooms off on us or lose our deposit. Motel stayed @ BEST WESTERN AKU TIKI INN ATLANTIC AVE. DAYTONA BEACH FLA.

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!

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.

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.
