Shore Winds Motel2.0 out of 5.0

I expected a low end experience when I chose the cheapest motel by the beach. This was worse than low end. It was unsafe. The doors open out and there was no safety chain on the door. This felt very unsafe. The motel is right on the road where anyone could walk by and up to your door, and try to enter. About two hours after I checked in, there was a puddle in my floor. The ceiling was leaking after a rainstorm. Soon there were seven places where drips were coming through. There were no available other rooms. The manager offered to move my bed to the other side of the room and put towels and buckets under the leak. As we talked, two more leaks started. I asked for my money back. The manager was very gracious and allowed me to do this even though I had bought a hot rate which was supposed to be non refundable. I do not recommend staying here at all.
I was woken by my friend who heard a scratching & tapping in the ceiling. Brushed it off until something an actual hole started forming in our ceiling and something starting crawling out. Ran to get the manager- he returned with a broom and climbed up to the ceiling to get a better look. Asked him if it was a mouse or rat, he said no... further prompted him to explain what he saw and he said "I don't know what that was." Horror movie alert... We left immediately. He would not refund us but kept insisting we could just switch rooms... no thank you, not after something broke through our ceiling right in the next room!! Got our $20 deposit back but were not able to get a refund. We left and found a real hotel to stay at. So awful.
This joke of a business cancelled my reservation without contacting me in advance. They know it's race weekend next February and cancelled because I booked at the regular rate. So if you want your travel plans cancelled for you, by a roach motel, book here.
A flea bag establishment would be a compliment. Do not stay here. It's not where you would want to sleep, shower, or spend time on the toilet. Building should be condemned, management ..... The worst I've ever seen.
Booked through orbitz was a book now paylater. I got charge by the motel it was taken out of my account. Called to find out why the Indian guy was rude and hateful telling me I take your money because people no pay. I told him that's not right he said he didn't care and hung up. Please people stay away.
You really get what you pay for. However, never expected them to "lose" my reservation and try to charge my card again. Even argued with me when I showed them my credit card app that proved I was already charged. When I refused to let them charge my card again, the manager suddenly "found" my reservation.
After another hotel further up the strip upped their advertised price by $50 (The San Marina), I decided to give the cheapest motel on A1A a shot. Though I didn't spend much time there, the place left a disturbing memory of the Daytona Beach Shores in my mind. First off, if you wanna party or be anywhere near decent nightlife while in Daytona, don't stay in the Shores, it's about 2.5 miles South from all the action. Worst things about this motel were: no ice machine, no bath towels, two abandoned Coke machines rotting on the property, a 45-min check-in time, and not being refunded my $10 deposit. The motel office didn't have a computer; they were doing all their business with an IPhone and a Xerox machine. Bottom line, don't stay here unless you're dead set at being right across from the beach and there's no other lodging is available on beachfront avenue.
One night stay in early April. Booked on Orbitz woman looked at me like I was crazy said she didn't have it. Waited half hour for her to clear it up. No refund signs all over office, obviously people have asked. Rooms are extra shabby, smell overly air freshened to cover a smell. Door is very difficult to shut, big cracks that let all kinds of critters in. Woman was very concerned about getting a $10 deposit for the dollar store remote to the ancient TV lol. But was cheapest option by the beach. Wasn't expecting much but "staff" could have been a bit more hospitable
This was the worst place to stay!!! To start the listing shows that they have stove tops and microwave, coffee pot, frige. Not at all what you get you get two beds almost on top of each other and a microwave and frige (which didn't work). When we arrived our door wouldn't shut and lock so they told us to just use the dead bolt which required two people to get to shut so you could lock it! After that we still had a huge crack all the way around the door which the lizards and bugs crawled in at night! Went to take a shower and there was two lizards and a roach in the shower! I complained and nothing was done at all! The room was very dirty and had a terrible smell! The staff was super nice but owner doesn't want to take responsablity for his motel! On the second night the roaches came out more which we were told they had came from the room next door where the people just left that we wouldn't see anymore! We saw more and more and he refused to give us a refund!!! Our Vacation was Runined! He wouldn't refund our money so we couldn't rent somewhere else and we were 12 hours from home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONT EVER STAY HERE!
From the start this place was complete crap. I placed reservations online. I had the papers to prove it yet they had nothing saying I was coming. They showed me two rooms in which the one smelled horrible! The floor in the room was dirty. The dresser was broken. The stove didn't light. I left and cameback to find roroaches all over the kitchen area and bathroom. I will NEVER come back to this place nor will I recommend it.
