I was pleased with my overall stay. Room was decent for me. My kids loved the pool. Had great access to the beach. The free breakfast was pretty good in my opinion. The parking kinda sucked in ways. I liked that I could walk to few restaurants in area and shops. I would stay at again.

It is conveniently located at the beach. About 15 mins away from Daytona Beach boardwalk. The property looked unattended. The room was okay. I did notice the bathroom door had been patched after what seemed someone had punched the door. Bathroom was very tiny. Their complimentary breakfast had very limited options and seemed like non-guest were eating there as well. Overall, I would not stay here again.

Old motel but clean, great staff. Had no problems during my stay

Location was great, but the room was nothing like pictures

Missing slates on window and no curtain...so no privacy.

Staff was AMAZING. Everyone from Steve who made sure we had a good stay, to Front office staff who proactively answered my questions on past reviews, to Tara who went above and beyond on the holiday with limited cleaning staff to ensure my environment was brought back to perfect for Thanksgiving, to Scooter and the kitchen guys who even made scrabbled eggs off the menu for my kids at breakfast! Even the Maint guys accommodated off the book requests that made my family more comfortable. They really made us feel welcome!

The people that work there are very nice. The hotel itself is getting to show its age quite a bit. Not saying it's terrible or anything but it's definitely needing maintaince. But they were painting and planting while I was there so it looks like they're working on it. I had a great view ocean view room and the beach was nice. There was no coffee maker in the room? Depressed about that I love coffee in the morning.bMy overall experience was good. But I wouldn't be able to stay there again.

It’s a crack hotel. There was a couple with all of their belongings and I do mean all belongings in a parking spot yesterday with no car. Trash piled high as they paced back and forth smoking cigarettes after what I’m guessing is getting evicted from a room.

Cute place and meets your needs if you looking for an ok place to stay

It didn’t look like the place had been cleaned in months! I was exhausted after an 8 hr drive so I did sleep but there was no way I was getting in the shower there!!

Ac in room didn’t work had to be moved late at night and was givena room without ocean view which we paid for ocean view then the new room ac barley worked and had bugs.

There was poop on the bathtub. I checked in late and went straight to bed. Woke up in the morning to shower and seen what appeared to be fecal matter on the bathtub. I went to the front desk and told them about the bathtub and that there was still trash in the bathroom. They said they would have someone clean it. I came back to the room hours later. The bed had been made and towels folded in the bathroom but the poop and trash was still there. Went back to the desk and told them again. They said they would have someone clean it. I turned in my keys and left. I’m still waiting on a refund for the 2 nights that I didn’t stay there.

The rooms were dirty, many items were broken or didn’t work, the beds were stained, a lot needed repainted, the complimentary breakfast was less than filling with minimal options, however we did get an upgrade where only a few things were broken. The view was pretty and you’re right on the beach with access to clean pool and hot tub.
