Everything was great from start to finish. Only down side was an "Oceanfront room" was booked and we were put on the south side of the hotel with a quality view of the dumpsters to the next door hotel.
We had booked what we thought was a basic room and it turned out to be a full suite. Perhaps it was a booking error or one on the part of the hotel but it was incredible! Excellent proximity to anything we needed and fantastic service. Will be
recommending to everyone we know and will definitely return!
Was surprised that check in was 4;00 pm in leiu of 3:00pm. And check-out time was 10:00 am in leiu of 11:pm, other hotels are 11:00 - 3:00 staff wanted to charge me for another day to have a late 2 hour check-out (12:00pm). Our flight out of
Daytona was 4:00pm ... basicly lost a full day of vacation due to early check-out.
Staff made us feel like we needed to leave.
Would not stay at Daytona Beach Regency again.
Great location at the end of the boardwalk but even at the end of March there are enough alcohol guzzling students on Spring break both poolside and in the streets at night to make Daytona unpleasant. Drunk young men urinated on cars in the resort
paring lot. There is no security system entering the pool from the beach. I mentioned to security that most people at the pool were not wearing resort wristbands but nothing was done about it. I asked staff about men sleeping on the beach and was told there is a large homeless population that makes walking on the beach at night unsafe. The condo was very nice except the balcony where everything was coated with pigeon dropings, wouldn't wash off the chairs. The resort and staff were great but the constant noise till late at night from drunken students on the street, honking drivers, and homeless men sleepng on the beach gave the city a grungy feeling. Don't think I'll choose Daytona as a beach vacation again and would warn against taking teens who like to explore on their own. Too much glorification of alcohol poolside and not safe conditions on the street and on the beach after dark.
This place was amazing!! The room was clean, the bed was comfy, the staff was perfect. The hallway did have a funky odor, but it was just carpet glue from new carpet. When I went in to get our keys, I told my husband if the room was even a tenth
as nice as the staff, we'd have it made. Fully furnished kitchen, dishwasher w/cleaning tabs provided, freezer with ice maker. Our view wasn't perfect, we were to the side, facing the neighboring hotel's loading dock/dumpsters, but we could still see the beach. Each floor has a laundry room that guests may use for free, just bring your own laundry soap/fabric softner. The outdoor pool was warm and has a super fun slide. The hotel is within walking distance of the boardwalk. The theater at the boardwalk was only $5 per person all day on Tuesdays. The only real complaint, they tried a few different times to get me to go to a timeshare presentation. But for the value of the room, and how nice it was, totally worth it. This WILL be our go-to hotel for beach stays.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Tuesdays at the Boardwalk Theater (Oceans 10, I think is the name) tickets are $5 per person all day.
this hotel was awesome. it was very clean and the staff was very nice. hotel was in the process of putting in new carpet in the hallways. whoever said this hotel was old and outdated is crazy. our room had new flat screen tv"s in the bedroom and
living room. i will book here again next year!
