Ocean front.....spectacular!

Horrific! I can’t believe Orbitz as this property listed. The pics are very falsely advertised. The pool is not heated as stated (I even called ahead to confirm). There was so much trash in the property and in the pool. A bag of what looked like vomit was floating in the adult pool, the kids pool had trash and cigarette butts around it. Our “balcony” had broken glass and more trash. We tried unpacking and hanging by the pool but couldn’t even relax because the broken lawn chairs, the view of dirt and trash and the freezing water. We didn’t even want to take our shoes off. The property was filled with rust and looks so rundown. So falsely advertised. It has so much potential too with the beachfront! We packed up in minutes after we arrived and let the front desk know the issues, they were very rude and said they weren’t going to agree to a refund just bc the pool wasn’t heated and some trash. We tried contacting Orbitz and they said the hotel would only give us back some of what we paid but a full refund! We didn’t even stay longer than 20 minutes in that filth! We felt unsanitary and unsafe. DO NOT book this place! Now I have to waste time by calling my card company. Avoid Avoid Avoid!

Property could be improved!

It is very old and outdated. The only good thing was the water pressure.

Our room smelt like mold really bad very out dated the couch and chair in our room was very disgusting my baby 2 years old sat on the couch and got bit by something several times.

The bathroom has a hole in the ceiling and I had a bug fall on me while using the bathroom. We didn't shower becaise it was run down and busted up all over the whole place smelled like mildew so bad that our belongings smelled like it after leaving we stayed 1 night. The ac/heat didn't work properly we were either to hot or way to cold it was not what I expected at all.... the pictures were definitely de!ceiving!

My wife and two daughters and I stayed two nights dec21 dec23 and purchased two adjoining rooms with kitchenette in between. Ocean view showed many Non Floridians walking in the ocean tshirts shorts etc we Floridians won't get in 62degree water😉. Breakfast was a bit disappointing hard boiled eggs, cereal, orange juice, milk, sweet breads, the only hot option was waffles which were cooked by staff. Very clean overall. Older motel but great heater cranked to 85 for seniors. Hot tub was nonoperative but swimming pool is heated. Great view directly on the beach. Definitely worth return trip. Ty Makai and staff.

the white sheets were very deteriorated color was tanned.

This was the DUMPS!!! I normally try not to put so much on a review bc I understand that normally you’ll get a bad review before someone would give a positive one. And I really tried to give it the benefit of the doubt… boy was I wrong. The checkin was terrible. We didn’t get our room until 7-8pm!!!!! We got there at 3, when checkin who hid have been available. The staff was very rude and didn’t care about anything. The rooms were TERRIBLE!!! Old and dirty… I definitely would not recommend this place unless you like staying in the dumps.

This property was a dump! I wanted to exit the minute I arrived. Never! Never! Again will I stay in the place that has the feeling of the hood. People standing on the balconies smoking, trash all over the place.. Run down dump!

So close to the beach. Reasonable price, and convenient restaurants within walking distance. Kitchenette in room, bigger refrigerator very convenient.

It is a typical beachfront hotel. Clean room with bed, TV shower, essentials pool & hot tub on the beach and decent breakfast. I see other reviews knock this place a bit but it has what you need at a reasonable priced. It's not paradise but I would recommend it as affordable and practical.

Not very clean. Needs upgrade. Very poor. Dirty

Very old hotel...The man that worked there was not very friendly...would only give me one blanket.

has easy access to beach and restaurants but room need deep clean bath was very dirty when I arrive

The view was amazing. Big rooms but our heater didn't work and there was a small roach. Other than that it was great. The staff was super friendly and upbeat.

Staff (Steve) always makes your stay better. Been staying here for a few yes now & wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Ormond Beach.
