Recent guest reviews

Emerald Shores was a great place to stay. The price was reasonable and the facility was fine.

This is an independent hotel which surprises me how clean, comfortable, and great staff this hotel has two offer . I absolutely love staying here, this is probably my fifth time . Impressive pool and Jacuzzi, with a great view of the beach. The hotel staff is 100%!

Other than the girl who checked us in on Friday Eve and one young maintenance man, the staff was very unpleasant and rude. I don't know if it is a bad place to work but I was treated like I was bothering them every time there was and interaction. This is the second time we have stayed here. The first time I was disappointed by the small things; the coffee maker did not work, no hot water in the shower, grate on AC hanging half off on the balcony but I decided to give it one more try. I was so put off by the "small" things again and the unfriendliness of the staff that I will try another hotel next time.

Did not have type of room reserved online and then unsold. Hotel was fine but this was not. Orbitz or hotel issue? Not sure. Please contact me to explain because not the first time.

The rooms were not clean. There was paper on the floor and it was there for the entire stay. There was s bulb missing , and when we called they did change it. It advertises free wifi, but we could not get on. People at desk were very pleasant, but we felt we should have been given a credit as we could not get online.

The room was large but lacked plastic cups, ice buckets, iron and ironing boards

There was mold in bathroom on the walls and the curtains had mold too

All as advertised, Well kept and very friendly staff. Old school video room and nice quiet place of beach for family or a quiet weekend.

It's true what they say....you get what you pay for however I don't think these people are aware of how disgusting these hotel is. It was filthy and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!

Wonderful Labor Day Weekend getaway! Nice quite end of the Daytona Beach. Perfect location. Clean room a PLUS! Staff kept room clean with clean towels daily. Comfortable king size bed. Nice large bathroom with tub/shower. Friendly staff! Will definitely stay again!!!

We've been going to Emerald Shores since it opened. We still love it!!! They have a tiki bar now and have added additional items to their breakfast. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy the beach, this is it. Parking is no problem and access to the beach is right in front of you. Josh was AWESOME! He was such a pleasant person to deal with. Thanks Josh.

Sent my parents away on a surprise trip to daytona beach. They had the most incredible stay at emerald shores and already planning their next trip back!

Was a nice little place for the money. Was disappointed there was no kitchen area or fridge. Staff was friendly and it was very clean.

the hotel is cool and the costomer service is excellent the wifi is wonderful and the beach is perfect and my name is george im 8 years old and i love this hotel but the arcade could have more games.

I will recommend this hotel , the location is pretty good for the price ,the room was clean,some smell but I think it was the carpet since people coming wet from the beach or pool,other then that we really enjoyed our stay, we definitely stay there again.

we were attending a evening minor league baseball game in Daytona surprising only a 10 min drive. we went for pizza and arrived back at the hotel around 11 pm. hotel parking lot full. no problem directly across the street a free public parking. any hotel on the beach has limited parking.

Clean but needs updating Great location friendly staff Don't think kids should have been allowed in hot tub by themselves and so late in the pool also needs better lighting around the pool at nite would return again

The staff, room and view all exceeded my expectations! Staff was courteous and a joy to be around. The room was clean, spacious and had the most amazing view(oceanfront efficiency)! At first the tub was slow to drain, I reported it and by time I came back that evening, the tub was working perfectly, very impressed! I will definitely become a repeat customer!

My wife and I had an oceanfront efficiency on the fifth floor. Large room, large bathroom, new tv, and nice balcony. There is not a lot of counter space in the kitchen area but we did not pay a fortune for this room. The pool, hot tub and grounds were very clean and well maintained. The staff were always cheerful and polite despite some very demanding guests. Elevators were always quick. Nice quiet location, but close to everything. Our room was nothing fancy but I think we got an awful lot for what we paid. We will definately stay there again.

Great family hotel except that they need a better laundry room
