This hotel is dated and needs renovation

[...]t when I arrived at the hotel it was run down and the room was small. I was disapointed because I could have booked the same quality for $45.00. The best thing about this hotel was that the location and the service was good. I think someone should check this hotel out.

El Caribe - older hotel but well kept

El Caribe is a older hotel but is well kept. The view I had of the ocean was incredible and it was a quieter end of the beach, not to close to the Spring Break crowd. The front desk person for check in was very helpful. There is also wi-fi service and you don't need to sign up for to just access the service and jump on. 2 pools and a deck to lay on lounge chairs. There is also a volleyball net set up and some picnic tables and a grill. Free continental breakfast, no hot items.

Hard times...

Easy check-in, very clean rooms, but the beds were a total nightmare! I don't think that I've ever slept on a bed that hard. We ended up taking one of the mattresses and putting it on top of the other bed. I will say that the rooms were very clean though. I would go back if I knew they had new beds!

Great Room Great Location

At first I was nervous because the building is one of those old Daytona Beach buildings, but the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The location is great and the view is spectacular from just about any room. New paint, new carpet, new bedding, new bedspreads, new linens, new towels, new lamps, big color TV with 50 cable channels. Hair dryer, big fridge, microwave, full size ironing board and iron, spotless in every way. Looks and smells clean and fresh. Clean big pool. Note: There is driving allowed on this part of the beach.

Decent Hotel

Overall, for the price it was a good choice. The whole hotel just really needs to be repainted. It was pretty clean and the kitchenette and free continental breakfast were nice perks. The towels were a joke (the pool towels were about 1'X 2' and all the towels (bath towels included) were very poor quality. The mattress was quite comfortable, so we slept well. Overall I would rate this hotel as more of a 2 1/2 than a 3 as the website categorized it, but again, certainly a good value for an oceanfront room.

A good bargain, a good location

This was the off-season in Daytona, so everything was very quiet and peaceful--which is what we were seeking. The hotel's staff were VERY friendly--from the manager to the housekeeping staff. Wherever we went, we were greeted with smiles and a warm greeting. Made us feel welcome. The bed was quite comfortable, and the efficiency was well equipped. The bathroom is dated, but it was clean. We would stay there again
