Recent guest reviews

We stayed at hotel for a week. Good location to beach and shops. Breakfast was good daily.

This was our first stay in an oceanfront hotel and we were very pleased! Our room was nice and roomy and had a kitchenette, which was nice. The balcony views were amazing! The hot breakfast was tasty and there were different choices each day. We would definitely stay here again!

Overall was great, balcony overlooking parking lot was a minus but you still could view the beach. Free breakfast was ok except both days the scrambled eggs were overlooked. Room was spacious, king sized bed very comfortable and the pillows were great. Bathroom was small and exhaust fan didn't do the job. Pool was huge, but no spa (jacuzzi) had a separate kiddie pool. Plenty of are and lounges to lay out in sun. Late afternoon happy hour..

The restaurant is good. Free breakfast is great. Staff are excellent .

We had an excellent stay. They are still under repair from Huricaine Matthew but very accommodating. Breakfast was very good. So many choices. The staff was awesome

Just met my family here for the night before a cruise. Worth the money. Nice kitchenette, and Winn Dixie is right across the street.

We enjoyed our stay here. Everyone we came in contact with was extremely pleasant and couldn't do enough to help us. The breakfast is excellent it's a real breakfast including an omelet bar. Complementary Happy Hour each day and the Restaurant is open from 11AM till 9PM. The Pool area is very inviting but during our Trip the weather didn't cooperate with us, it was some of the coldest days of the Year. The Hotel is under construction remodel but that wasn't an issue for us. Unless your spending your entire trip in your room the construction shouldn't be an issue. They don't start working until 9AM. We will Definitely be staying here when we visit Daytona again.

Wonderful stay. Love the happy hour! The breakfast was free . They might want to add bacon to the menu.

Great front desk. Comfortable room. Jus an older hotel

My family has been going to this hotel for over 10yrs now and we have always loved it but for the first time I was disappointed! When we arrived lots of people had been waiting to get in their rooms but fortunately for us ours was ready but when we got to our room first thing I noticed was a ton of hair all over the bathroom floor! Then I noticed the mirror in the room looked like someone had smeared something all over it, but I knew they were busy so I overlooked it and didn't bother to complain. That evening was free complimentary happy hr which was great bar was very friendly so we decided to eat at the hotel which we had never really done before! What a nightmare!! Out of 9 people in our 2 party's 6 of us got extremely sick after eating dinner here! And I do mean SICK! The next night at happy hr was different from night before, every yr that I have come here you can order 2 drinks at a time but this 2nd night a different lady says no only 1? But ok. so happy hr is from 5:30-6:30 well we went for 1 last drink at exactly 6:30 n I do mean 6:30 on the dot and she says "no sorry it's over I can't there's cameras watching me" as she's leaning on side of bar talking to another staff member! Well if happy hr is from 5:30-6:30 I don't see the problem! If it had been 6:31 then ok but it was literally 6:30. I'm sorry but that is just poor customer service and to act so rude about it. It's not the fact that we couldn't get 2 drinks or that they didn't serve at exactly 6:30 which was still happy hr, it's the attitude and rudeness that really was over the top. Just not what I've experienced in all the years going there at all!

As residents of Orlando, we were searching for the perfect 2 night "stay-cation" in a beachfront hotel property. The Best Western Aku Tiki caught our attention because of its location, free breakfast, free internet and free parking. Little did we know what an amazing room we would get nor the additional amenities that would be offered. We were greeted by incredibly friendly staff and were told about "happy hour" which was held in the attached Traders restaurant. There, we were offered free alcoholic beverages including draft beer, house wines and wells with a mixer from 5:30pm-6:30pm with proof of room key. In the morning, breakfast was also held in the Traders restaurant. It was one of the best free hotel breakfasts I've ever had. We stayed in room 201 which had an absolutely amazing view of the beach. From standing in the kitchenette area, it literally looked like we were on a cruise ship facing the ocean. The beds could have been more comfortable (a bit stiff), but the rest of the room was incredibly clean and comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Daytona Beach!

BEST IN DAYTONA BEACH AWESOME, GREAT ROOMS , FOOD WAS GOOD

The hotel is very Comfortable and is a great value with a Happy Hour (free drinks) from 5:30 to 6:30 for registered Guests.They also have a very good free breakfast.

My daughter and I were there for a cheerleading competition. I have stayed at this hotel before and was my first choice this time. I fully enjoy the happy hour and being able to have cocktails on the beach. Plenty of seating to gaze into the ocean/sea and just to relax. Room had a microwave and small refrigerator which was perfect. The morning breakfast buffet is a great way to start the day off. The only bad thing to say, is that the weather was cold and would have liked a better view of the ocean. All in all, will stay here again. Great hotel!

A Little bit older but ok. Room had enough space and the few from the balconi was great. Verry friendly and helpfull staff. Great pool area. Breakfast was verry good.

Numerous activities nearby; staff was great ! Rooms completely furnished; stove/micro//fridge.

Locals went for a getaway night. Staff was more than friendly. Loved the managers cocktail hour. Breakfast was great. It's all there . Don't Have to leave. Park your car and enjoy. Will definitely be back

Wonderful, pool could have been a little more heated but overall stay was fantastic

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and included necessities. Parking was ample and included night securtiy

large pool, good view of beach from room, plenty of parking, had trouble parking our 18 foot trailer even though they say they have RV parking ( changed foot requirement because of Bike week but didnt let us know ahead of booking )

hotel for beach bums

Everyone

Overall was great, balcony overlooking parking lot was a minus but you still could view the beach. Free breakfast was ok except both days the scrambled eggs were overlooked. Room was spacious, king sized bed very comfortable and the pillows were great. Bathroom was small and exhaust fan didn't do the job. Pool was huge, but no spa (jacuzzi) had a separate kiddie pool. Plenty of are and lounges to lay out in sun. Late afternoon happy hour..
