Recent guest reviews

My wife and I decided to get away for the weekend and we wanted a hotel on the beach. The bathroom can only fit one person .. The patio door was very difficult to open.. the front door to my room looked damaged. the 2ND night in the hotel parking ran out of parking spots and i was forced to park across the street. Very aggravating i will not go back.

We came down to Ormond Beach on a housing search. Everything is conveniently located close to motel: food, entertainment, and of course the beach was right outside. Looking forward to our next stay.

This place surprised me. I am originally from an older resort area like this one, so usually Best Westerns are.....a little...worn out. This hotel was simply perfect! It was nicer than the Hampton Inn I stayed at in Key Largo! HUGE rooms, big TV's could use a couch... and the balconies need some work... maybe a little privacy... conversations carry and there is nothing between you and the next room. However, that doesn't mean this place isn't great! Its perfect. Nice pool, right on the ocean, fire pit with seating, huge breakfast area with plenty to choose from. It was my birthday and the young man who checked me in gave me an upgrade to my room. I will stay here again the next time I am in the area!

The rooms have been completely remodeled with new furniture, fixtures and flooring.

The staff, especially Misty at the front desk , was exceedingly competent , considerate and kind. The breakfast was good with ample quantity for all. We arrived during the week of the supermoon. Needless to say that moonrise was spectacular! The sound of the waves at night was very soothing. Great night 's rest after a long drive! Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great location on the beach, with balcony. Hotel is dated and needs remodeling and freshness.

My room had ants and palmetto bugs as the smart lady desk clerk said when I complained. To me they are cockroaches. Cleaning ladies reported twice and supposedly it was sprayed to no good results. The 1st bug was in the coffee basket. Quite the surprise. I beat it with my hairbrush. Smaller ones each night on the floor. Small ants on table and kitchen counter. Otherwise a very nice room overlooking the ocean. I stayed here in February and liked it tho the Orbitz room was to the front above the street and very noisey. The breakfast room is nice. The cleaning ladies are great. Also the tub drain could not be plugged for a bath. Waiting for hot water at times was about 5 minutes. Also renovation was going on. Lots of noise and big trucks. A rollaway in lot with a guy tossing carpeting from the 6th floor. It's a shame I had a bad experience. I liked being close to the beach. It has a nice patio area too.

Very nice hotel, room very clean, and breakfast super good.

Beautiful stay. The second time I've stayed here. No issues with room. However there were no pots and pans to cook if need to. Ocean front view is amazing

This hotel has stood the test of time. Yes it's older, but it's had some sprucing up. Same old elevator system & bathrooms are very tiny; some with windows instead of exhaust fans. But friendly staff willing to accommodate if issues arise. All rooms are not particularly spacious but are clean. Breakfast is limited in choices but free. I enjoyed reminiscing & showing my kids where I stayed at the beach as a kid.

Hotel was average for the size. Rooms are clean. Great Value especially during the week of 4th of July. Nice Large Swimming Pool. Parking was a bit of concern. Small and Cramped

My family and I had stood here many times before but this was one of the best stay. Rooms were clean and serviced everyday and everyone was friendly!

Only complaint I have is they were pressure washing the balcony's during my stay which made it impossible to talk while sitting at the pool because of the generator

We found the hotel to be very convenient to the beach. The girls at the check in were very nice. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choices.

I chose this hotel based on price and location, This hotel was better than I was expecting! The room was nice, clean and spacious! Never had any issues with noise or other problems and Breakfast was a nice bonus!

I spent 10 days in this hotel with no problems. It very convenient to stores and restaurants and the bridge to Ormond Beach. It had great deck area and easy access to the beach.

Just there for one night, right price, excellent location, room was good, staff excellent, and breakfast good for hotel, I would go there again.

Minor issue with door, but staff was very accommodating

Booked this hotel to visit Daytona for a wedding. For the price, the hotel isn't actually bad. I'm very picky when it comes to where I sleep but this hotel seemed to be pretty decent. Would most like stay again, unless I want to be closer to my hometown in Daytona.

The location was wonderful, great view of the beach and easy access to the beach. The room was not stocked with everything we needed so we had to ask for more towels, etc. but it was easily taken care of. Staff was friendly and so willing to help with any problems. I would stay there again.
