Sunshine, sandcastles at Castillo Del Sol oceanfront in Ormond Beach
Appropriately named the “Sun Castle,” sun, sand and a breathtaking ocean are the main attractions at this Ormond Beach hotel. Several miles north of Daytona Beach, Ormond is quieter and less crowded, but still close to attractions and entertainment. Guests flock to the 23-mile beach for sunning and swimming. Nearby are golf courses, shopping, and a state park with fishing, kayaking and canoeing. The Daytona speedway is a short drive away. Within 85 miles are destinations such as Kennedy Space Center, Disney theme parks and Universal Studios.
Highlights
  • Oceanfront location
  • Convenient access to the Boardwalk Amusement Area and Pier, Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail, Ponce Inlet Lighthouse
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet access
  • Oceanfront pool
Rooms
The charming guest rooms at the Best Western Castillo Del Sol are housed in a yellow, seven-story structure just steps from the beach. Many have balconies with sweeping ocean views. Among the room features are pillowtop beds, satellite television and free high-speed wireless Internet access. For a special indulgence, reserve a suite or ocean view room with fully equipped kitchens, or an oceanfront efficiency with a DVD Player, kitchenette and dining area.
Features
The beach in front of the Best Western Castillo del Sol stretches for miles in both directions. Spend lazy days soaking up the sun while the kids build sandcastles and splash in the surf. The hard-packed sand is suited for bike riding, walking or jogging. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants and attractions. Go kayaking or fishing at nearby Tomoka State Park, or head to a local golf course. Less than five miles south is the Daytona Lagoon water park and Ocean Walk Shoppes, which boasts a 10-screen movie theater.

Best Western Ormand Beach, Florida

We stayed during the early part of October, just before the bikeathon. We had a pleasant stay. They kept the room clean, gave us extra coffee, and had a great breakfast bar. There was no microwave, we really needed one.

Stairs

Very busy hotel with the Labor Day weekend. The ice machines were overwhelmed with so many guests filling coolers to take to the beach, but the one on the 7th floor continued to work. You could hear the ice being taken out even up to about 3AM one night! Room staff, and hotel personnel were all rated excellent....they did their best to make things right. Unfortunately one of the two elevators broke down several times, making for a long trek up and down 7 flights. Fabulous views, great deck and pool area, even if a large part of the deck was taken up by a very large group who set up a tent, games, and commandeered a couple of the available picnic tables. Overall, an enjoyable holiday weekend, even if the hotel was packed to the max.

Needs TLC but will give a 2nd chance

The room was clean and so was the bathroom, but the mold and mildew in the shower were apparent, the carpet was old and the hotel overall is run down. The pool was fine. The fact that it is right in front of the water is what makes this a place to stay. We only stayed for the night for an event, we didn't eat the breakfast but we noticed they served hot as well as cold food. We think we will stay for a weekend with the kids and try it out, but we are hesitant. Nice view but you have to go to the balcony window to see it. The beach seemed nice, we've never been to the Daytona Beach area. You usually get what you pay for...

OK

When we arrived which was well after midnight, there was a problem, both with the reservation as well as the hotel computer. It took approx. 20 mins or more to get things straightened out. When we got to the room, it was not made up. We had to go back to the desk for them to find us another room which took another 20 mins. We also told them we did not want a 5th floor room because the elevator smelled so horrible. Even though we were exhausted, we chose to carry our belongings and use the stairs. The whole experience was a disaster and we were exhausted by the time we got to bed!

Beware!

The first night we got to the hotel we came into our room to discover that our air conditioner wasn't working properly. We called the front desk and left for dinner. When we returned the air conditioner still had not been fixed. I called the front desk again only to be told that the maintenance guy had replaced our whole unit. I told the girl at the desk that I don't think that had been done since the unit was still not blowing cool air. She didn't seem happy but told me that she'd send the maintenance guy back up. Within 10 minutes the maintenance guy had brought us a new unit and apologized that he had forgotten to come back and replace it. Not a big deal, but a slight inconvenience. Overall the room was fine. The beds were very comfortable, good pillows, and hot water in the bathroom. The carpets felt very dirty and I tried not to walk around without shoes on because of it. We did have $11 in quarters (for laundry) stolen out of our room by a housekeeper I assume. When we informed the front desk we were pretty much told too bad and that we could call the police if we wanted, but the hotel would not be doing anything about it. The rooms have safes in them. I suggest using them for all of your valuables! We didn't think to lock $11 in quarters up- I guess someone was really desperate! Breakfast was a joke. Frozen French toast, a machine that made pancakes, eggs, sausage, and cereal. The good news is Dunkin donuts and IHOP are right across the street! I won't be staying here again!

On the beach

For the price, it was a good value. The air conditioning unit (it appeared fairly new) quit working one evening - reported it to the desk first thing in the morning as we were leaving - still not working when we returned around 4 pm. Had to call a second time to have it repaired. It is their standard not to wash the ceramic coffee mugs orthe coffee pot on a daily basics - I would have thought that would be a daily housekeeping standard.
