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.

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.

Betty's A1A Cafe - great food at a reasonable price - the clam chowder is a must.

Is that Best Western?

I thought we were going to Best Western chain hotel but was disappointed. It's an old building with some renovations. Hotel personnel was friendly to us. Maybe that's management who does not pay enough attention to so important details ( bugs, non working heating in a room we stayed , rusty metal parts,terrible internet service, dust and dirt...) The best they have is the ocean view. When we got cold and had to stay for 3 days in a room the ocean view kept us positive. Never thought that while spending vacation in Florida you can dream about your apartment in cold Chicago...I don't know what but something is missing in that hotel. It's like we live now in a 21st century and this hotel is from the middle of 20th century...

Excellent Hotel

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days and found the entire staff from maintenance to cleaning to front desk to be most helpful and friendly. Everyone we encountered went out of their way to accommodate us. The underground parking was an unexpected amentity. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Will definitely stay here again when we visit Daytona.

Ormond Beach vacation

Hotel needs to be renovated. Mattresses poor and difficult to sleep. View of the ocean was the best part of the stay. Easy access to the beach. Continental breakfast was helpful on a budget. Staff were friendly.

Vacation

Overall a good exp. Room could have been cleaner & tub should have been cleaned daily. Pigeon droppings were on patio & chairs, not good. Love bugs were a nuisance but it was the season. Free breakfast was not good. No micro. to heat pastry. Great view of ocean! Good value for room.

Awesome!

There was 3 of us staying in the room and the only complaint we had was, we never had the right amount of towels. But the breakfest was great!
