First trip to the ocean and it's definitely a trip to remember!

I had never been to the ocean before so going to a hotel that was on the beach was a dream come true. It was on a secluded spot of the beach that wasn't as visited as the rest of the beach. The beach front in front of the hotel was clean and the hotel itself was extremely clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a beautiful hotel with a beautiful view. I would recommend a room that faces the ocean, those sunrises are absolutely incredible!

Great getaway!

My children and I enjoyed waking up to the beautiful sunrise off the water in our room. The view was priceless. We didn't want to leave. Staff was friendly and helpful. Having breakfast provided by the hotel was very convenient. Rooms were very clean. Great deal for the price. Older hotel, but very clean and comfortable.

1 Night Getaway

I decided to take a last minute, 1 night getaway to the other coast. I found this hotel at a great price! My room had a balcony that overlooked the ocean. Besides the fog that rolled in, it was pure relaxation. The room felt old and dated, but all the amenities you needed where in it. I had everything I needed to relax! I fell asleep to the sound of the waves and woke up the next morning to enjoy a tiny bite to eat from the breakfast items they offer that are included. The property had two pools, which I didn't get to enjoy along with some grills, shuffleboard and and a basketball hoop. If you don't mind a little wear and tear and staying in an older building, then this is the place! What a little Gem! I will definitely return whenever I take another little getaway to Daytona!

Oceanfront View

I enjoyed staying at this hotel for 1. Oceanfront View, Cleanliness, Breakfast and Hotel Staff. I stayed for 2 nights and liked so much will be returning for a longer stay. If you want to wake up every morning with the Ocean view this is the place to stay and you have the kitchen/dining area to cook and eat if you like.

LOVE this hotel. We stay here every time we come to daytona. It is always clean and it's a stones throw away from everything. Perfect for our romantic weekend getaways.

OK Weekend Getaway

This hotel was good for just a night away. The location was just what we wanted a pool/beach view and easy access to the beach. It is within walking distance of fun places to visit which is also great because of traffic. It is a little outdated if your looking for something fancy. The floor had a certain dampness and stickiness about it so we just kept our shoes on when walking around. The refrigerator was a little rusty and the lightning in the room needs to be a whole lot better. We also didnt like the fact of adjoining rooms as the people next to us were early risers. The breakfast consisted of donuts, bagels, yogurt, and cereal. There was also a few drink choices. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel and we didnt expect to have a kitchen in the room which was great.
