Overall experience was good for the price to have an efficiency room on the beach. We have stayed at this hotel several times so we have past experience. The disappointments were that one of the elevators was down so there was a long wait and that
the indoor pool was closed which was not disclosed anywhere until we went to use it and it was locked.
Overall, it was really good. Only downside was the indoor pool and hot tub were not available/working. One of the elevators wasn't working, but we were on the 3rd floor, so taking the stairs wasn't bad. Had to pay $5/day for parking which I didn't
like, but at least I didn't have to hunt for a place to park. Housekeeping staff was extremely helpful and took care of requests quickly. Outdoor pool and kiddie pool was really nice and clean. Hotel location is close enough to see fireworks at the boardwalk pier, but far enough away the chaos of young partying people wasn't disruptive to my stay. Will definately stay here again.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Crabby's Joes - you can eat on the pier right over the ocean and they have fishing off the pier available.
The first morning there my Daughter dropped her camera from the five story level. Busted the lens. This was our fault. The next day we went shopping I left my camera in the room. Came back the camera was gone. The maids cleaned the room and the
staff said the cable repair people were allowed in our room. When we came back the door was ajar. The door was in terrible shape. You had to slam the door to ensure it was locked.
I felt the hotel was at fault for the loss of my camera because the door was faulty. They allowed unannounced people to enter the room, and they left our door open. They said I should have used the safe.
The hotel in general was pretty sad, one elevator had been broken for 6 weeks, parking spaces blocked off for cement railings on upper floors breaking off, hot tubs not working, rooms not very clean, just needs lots of work and upkeep.
Location and amnemities of the pool and tiki bar were good but there could have better things offered for the price of one room for the night. I think I may stay there again but I know there are muxch better deals for the prices around
The room was clean and big with a kitchen. Doors had some issues but nothing major. If your looking for a basic hotel this is it. Far from the boardwalk on foot. Staff could have been more helpful. Nice pool area
This hotel provides a good value for families. It is an older hotel but the upkeep is good. A negative feature would be that you have to pay for parking and they automatically charge you for the safe whether you use it or not. Overall, the hotel
is nice. However, I wouldn't visit Daytona Beach again due to the small beach area and vehicle traffic that is allowed on the beach. It is not paradise when you're laying on the beach between automobiles. If you lay out closer to the ocean, you end up getting wet because of the riptides.
