San Marina Motel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

hotel room smelt horrible. Stains on couch. Couch was positioned so you could not even sit in it.

Booked our room last min for bike week 2017. Became anxious about what we would find when we arrived after I read through the online reviews. Our experience was way above expectation. Room was very clean. Service was exceptional. Hotel is an older facility but they have really made the most with what they are working with. Highly recommend this motel.

Would not go if it was free. Owner need a lesson in how to treat customers.

Despite our reminding them twice of our late arrival, they threaten to give our room away. After they had already been paid in full for both nights. They wouldn't answer the phone or door when requested. Our room had no A/C, they charge for ice and we had to cross the street to another hotel to find drinking water. But of course we had to pay their "resort fee." I don't recommend this motel to anyone. Stay away.

The guy at the counter was friendly. I had no problems with him but can understand why he requires things especially during springbreak with deposits however he didn't ask one from me probably because he can see I am not a drinking nut job. Anyway the room is clean and the bathroom was nice and big. It was a king size room with a fridge and microwave. The only thing I had an issue with was no coat hangers in the closet. The rooms are oddly shaped but unique.

They have done a wonderful job of updating this old place. Our room was near perfectly clean. THANK YOU Bed was very comfortable. My only complaint is the parking, you have to walk all the way around the building to get to the rooms.

Well for the price I got a room with the bed TV and free Wi-Fi. As for the amenities I got free cockroaches access to a pool and ice machine that looks like it hasn't been used In 20 years. The blankets all had burn holes. The pillows were all different sizes. The fire detector was pulled off the wall. At least the staff were friendly. And I was close to everything. I got what I paid for a cheap room.

Overall very good stay for the price and location.

My family really enjoyed our first time in Daytona. Yet it was not our first time in Florida. Will definatly be coming back!!

Pleasantly surprised. Clean,comfortable,non-smoking room.Great value for the downstairs,poolside room I occupied.

The Hotel is very clean and updated.....parking is tight.. ..the beach is right across the street....

There is barely any light that shines into the small stand up shower. Only outlets that worked had the fridge and microwave plugged in them with the exception of the one in the bathroom. Room was clean but small.

I arrived early @ 2pm to check in. The manager said check in is at 3 and they had no rooms. So, I waited an hour and checked in. I got to my room and what a disaster...the bed wasnt made, no towels and no phone in the room to call the front desk. I had to use my cell phone and call down for housekeeping to clean my room. The pics on the website are deceiving. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.

There for coke zero 400 so the motel was overpriced for the weekend but overall it was a nice motel. Did not look great from the outside and room was a little small but very clean and had everything we needed including a small loveseat. I would recommend this motel especially if on a budget and looking for a place to stay near the beach (right across the street).

Very scary hotel, with scary people, most looked and acted like they were on drugs, too close to road, very loud echo from traffic and motorcycles. Our room was ok, very clean, but dark. No refrigerator or microwave in our room. When I asked the desk about it, I was told a lie about the previous people who stayed had stolen them and our room was the only one. Completely not true. We will never stay there again.

Not the Ritz but I don;t spend a lot of time in the room. A little dumpy on outside but rooms were very clean. The price was great so can't beat it if you just need a bed and shower.

Didn't know about the $25 dollar hold they put on your credit card at check in. Parking is in back and you have to walk around the building to get to rooms. The pool is not good for young kids as it's too deep for them to stand even in shallow end. The best part is it was right across the street from the beach access road. Will nor stay here again even if it is free. Staff very rude also!

No phones inside the rooms to call front desk. Have to call them through my cell. The bed sheets were stained with I don't even want to know what. The "staff" who is a couple. And also love there with their family, Are very rude. Blow dryer not in room, have to go ask and walk to the front to get that and an iron (that should be in the room already). They don't send someone to give it to you or pick it up. I went to go get ice for the ice bucket and it costs 25 cents. So then I had to walk all the way back to my room to grab a quarter. The soda vending machine does not work. The bathroom is okay. No light in the shower so it's dark. Get this, THEY DRIVE BRAND NEW AUDI SADANS, but they can't even make sure their rooms or at least clean? They have old school actual real keys. Do you know how hard and inconvient it is to share a key with 3 other people? Upgrade your doors at least! Will never stay there again. The staff acts like every single thing you from the point of check in to checking out is going out of thier way to accommodate you. min the guest, I'm paying for a service, paying for you Audi. Be nice at least.

Room was very small (like two rooms made from one),no window in sleeping area, no place to hang clothes ( a bar screwed to a door but no hangers), no clock. but it did have a refrigerator, microwave and comfortable bed.

Was nice. Hotel was fairly clean. Good location on the strip.
