Beautiful view of ocean!

Balcony on the ocean - fantastic. Enjoyed bacony. Rooms were okay. No daily room service for 2 of the 3 days. Had to call desk for clean towels. All the electrical outlets in the room were in bad shape - all plugs would fall out of outlet. A safety hazard. Bathroom was clean but in bad shape with ceramic tile coming off and tub that could not drain quickly.

Overstated

The hotel, not resort, disappointed me. It was clean, but I would come in after a hard day of classes and it would smell like a dead animal was in there. The door conecting my room to the room next door had a large separation and everything they cooked, said, burped or farted was heard and smelled in my room. The staff was friendly, but thats the best I could say about them. Way too noisy late into the night.

Finding fast food and drive thrus are not easy to find on Atlantic Ave. A drive to the other side of the river parralle to the strip, on Ridgeway will give you everything you want to find.

Good getaway

It was a great time. You can't beat the price. The location is great to be on the beach. Great value compared to other hotels on the avenue. However, the showers offer slow weak pressure. The beds are older and uncomfortable. But we knew that when we booked at such a low rate.

good location, terrible room

I have stayed in old, smelly and neglected beach-side hotels before, but this one is beyond comprehension... Location, beach view, pools and staff are OK, but room was horrible. The musty smell of mildew, smoke and who knows what else was just unbearable, we had to sleep with balcony door opened all the time just not to suffocate. Almost everything in the room except TV was broken or not working properly, toilet won't flush, blinds held together with masking tape, stove would not turn off no matter what you do, etc. Jail cells in Alcatraz were probably in a better shape. If you don't want spoiled stay at the beach, spend few dollars more and stay somewhere else, this hotel needs to be torn down, it's hopeless

It's a nice place for the price . Only things we. Didn't like was the bathroom had no fan and thepillows were terribly uncomfortable. Other then that it was good. Location is good and staff was friendly. Keep in mind this is one of Daytonas older hotels.

older hotel/in need of upgrades/parking horrible

Rooms were not ready due to housekeeping being understaffed that day, so we had to check in late. The rooms are in need of updating but we did have a kitchen unit that was helpful, since there is a grocery store directly across the street. Balcony overlooked ocean which was very nice. Elevators are extremely slow and very small. Did not use the pool it looked cloudy in the early evening and there were a few kids running wild during the daytime . So we settled for the ocean instead. The parking was a different issue if you return in the evening good luck finding a parking spot because there is a good chance there will be none. The hotel itself is a few miles away from Daytona Beach, Daytona has gone from being a great place to visit to being a dumpy filled homeless town. Your better off staying ormond beach which is a little further north. Would only recommend for a overnight stay.
