Rooms where great beach was right outside the hotel

Liked oceanfront balcony room Upkeep and cleanliness severely lacking-asked them to redo bed upon arrival as there were stains on comforter, sheets were dirty and so threadbare could see the mattress. Food crumbs in and around fridge . Curysins stained and ripped. Fridge and the Filters on air unit and hairdryer looked like they hadnt been cleaned since the 60's

Everything is what i paid for. My kids really enjoyed themselves.

The room i initially checked into had a wet towel hanging out of the refrigerator.And the pool and hot tub was dirty.

The property was great. Free breakfast was just enough and had everything you could of wanted for a cold continental. Pool area super nice and right on the beach. Beach was fabulous!!! The staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was on the first floor which was great but the only negative thing I can say about it was it needs a little updating in the bathroom. Other than that perfect!!! We will definitely stay there next time.

The location and price was as expected. They’re breakfast would have been better if there wasn’t one. The mattresses would be comparable to a pull out couch!

I loved the location. The hotel needed some simple maintenance like covers on light bulbs in the halls. Breakfast could be better and seating was poor. Only 8 seats available Staff was great

Beachfront room spacious and clean, most important. Kitchen has a 2 burner cooktop, but no light. An undercabinet light is needed. Fridge is old, but works. Had coffeemaker, but no coffee or filters offered. Pans sparse, but we brought our own. Bed lights did not work; I'm a reader so moved the floor lamp. The pool and hot tub deck is nice, but was never cleaned on Sunday. Trash and clothing from Saturday guests were left, chairs never straightened, deck never hosed nor water cleaned. Fire pits were not lit.(?) Pots empty & ugly; a few small palms/plants would be an easy fix. Tiki bar is very limited, rarely open for a $5 beer ( the bartender was very nice.) Not really with amenities advertised. We were only there 2 nights, and the weather and beach were beautiful. We would debate returning. Very average but could be better.

We were very pleased with our stay at Emerald Shores. We arrived earlier then the check in time and were able to get into our room a little earlier than expected. The best part of our stay was the beautiful view from our oceanfront balcony! The bed was very comfortable with the pillow top mattress and down comforter. We slept with the balcony door open every night to listen to the waves crashing on the shore!! Staff were very friendly and personable. The room and facility areas like the lobby and game room where the pool towels were kept were clean and accessible. The hot tub outside near the pool and pool were very clean and usable. The poolside tiki bar was open Thursday through Sunday with a friendly bartender. We’ll definitely be staying at Emerald Shores again!!!0

Very nice experience.but their was a big dog in the room right next to ours and didn't get much sleep ..but we will definitely be back

Nice hotel, friendly laid back staff. Would use again for price, very reasonable on beach stay

We come to Daytona often and try to stay at Emerald when we come. People are friendly and helpful.

Staff very nice and very helpful Need water in your breakfast area Mr. Johnson very helpful

Very nice Close to beach Very pleasant staff Convenient location

Bad smell. Dampness in elevator carpet - mildew. Nice staff

The Emerald Shores in my opinion is a 2-3 star hotel. I have been staying there now for about four years during the Coke Zero 400 weekend for the race. The staff is great the place is for the most part clean and it's a great location. With that being said I feel that the ownership is putting the bare minimum into the Hotel. One of the main reasons we picked this hotel years ago was that the price was reasonable for a Hotel on the Beach with an outside Pool and Bar. Well the Bartenders have always been great but ownership puts the bare minimum into the bar. In fact on our last day Sunday July 8th, 2018 it wasn't even open. On SATURDAY July 7th they ran out of Capt Morgan and VODKA. They also had only two beers to choose from BUD Light or Michelob Ultra. Also the Hot Tub was green this year. I'm pretty sure we will not be returning again.

Nice hotel on the beach. Close to restaurants and shops.
