Daytona Breach

I would say the only thing good about this hotel was the location. And even that was questionable the beach waves were so high we couldn't swim and the beach was filled with Jelly Fish. The room was tiny with no carpet. Hotel workers were not friendly. The pool had a chair throughn in it so we didn't feel comfortable swiming in there either. I will not stay there again.

Dream Inn stay in October 2014

The Dream Inn has a nice location right on the beach in Daytona Shores. It is one of the older motels that the owners have clearly worked hard to maintain and upgrade. My wife and I had reserved 2 nights but only stayed 1 because the mold/mildew odor was so strong that being in the room was very unpleasant. Our room was a "courtyard" room, so this may only apply to those rooms. Our room had a wood plank ceiling that is probably original. The wood looked nice, but is likely the source of the mold and mildew. There were a few other issues with the room; the floor was terrazzo (polished concrete) which is a great cost saving measure over time but is not what I want in a hotel room, the bathroom only had a shower which was a disappointment to my wife who loves to soak in a tub, the bathroom itself was tiny with a pedestal sink and nowhere to place toiletry items, the door was the glass panel type with blinds built into the glass only the blinds were not light blocking and the room remained very bright at night, and the kitchen area lights were not functioning leaving it very dark since it is separated from the rest of the room by a wall. Overall the room is quite small. For a few dollars more we found a newer ocean front high rise down the street for our second night. Making the move salvaged the weekend. The new room was over twice the size, carpeted, large bathroom, and ocean front. The new room was definitely worth the extra cost.

needs a little updating.

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend. It was a little outdated but overall it was a pleasant stay. We could hear the ocean from our room. It's a family owned hotel, it was a great value for a beachfront hotel.

Try "boondock's" it is a marina bar & grill that has great food & drinks at good prices. Just dont judge by the plastic diner ware. Worth trying, I'm glad the locals told us about it.

Dream Inn

This is an older, 2 story motel, with some updates, as advertised. The staff was friendly, we had a courtyard room which looked out on a lovely garden with tables and chairs to relax on. The pool and another garden area looked right onto the beach which was a quick walk across the sand. If you don't enjoy high rises and crowds, this motel fits the bill! We would certainaly return.

Relaxing family getaway

Better than expected. Clean and cozy room, nice pool and loved the court yard. Only suggestion is to add an ice machine. Look forward to returning soon.

February in Florida

Hotel is very convenient and right on the beach. We did not use the pool but it looked inviting. Room had just been upgraded....now included a king bed. Had small microwave and refrigerator which is extremely nice to have while in Florida. Were only there two nights but would stay again for a short stay.

Dream inn on ocean

An alternative to the multi level high rise hotels along Daytona Beach the Dream Inn was small and cozy. The pool was heated and very nice. I would suggest an ocean front room(duh), but either way you are footsteps from the ocean. The room we had was a bit outdated but clean. Only complaint I had was a light outside our door shone in our faces in bed and the blinds did not block it. I would stay again but only in an ocean front room.

Family mishap

Although the staff was very nice, the room we were in left a lot to be desired. I assumed the picture I saw when booking the room would be somewhat similar to what we would receive. Instead the room was very small with no bathtub and with other flaws. The outside actually looked better.
