Ocean Breeze By The Sea

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Reasonble price. Very convenient . Beach was across the street . Very close to restaurants and stores . Very helpful staff. Parking was a big plus.

I enjoyed my stay Ocean Breeze by The Sea. Beach accommodations were easy, the Pool was second to none. The staff was great. Had a electrical issue that was addressed in a reasonable time period. The room was a little humid at times but overall I will be back my next trip down. Thank you for your great staff and accommodations Jim Ennis

Simply put the best priced on the beach and room meet all expectations.

The only thing I didn't realise when I reserved at Ocean Breeze is, that it's across the street from the beach and you have to walk across the road to pool/beach.

Late night checkin staff was friendly, helpful, but s-l-o-w. Hotel was actually cleaner than I expected. Room was fine. I was only there to sleep one night before the triathlon so only there 6 hrs. Not on beach. Across front beach road. No big deal to get to beach.

The stay was good! A lot of partying goes on here and isn't told to stop! Security guards party with the guests! I wouldn't recommend this hotel to ppl who are looking for a quiet stay. One of the security guards is a complete jerk. Overlooks a lot but kicks ppl out for minimal things! Great hotel for travelers that are high school or college students looking to party and be close to the strip and beach!

The hotel was very nice. It had a great view of the beach and the strip. It is not on the beach, it is across the street from the beach, along with the hotel restaurant and pool. Everything was in walking distance so it was not bad at all. The room was very comfortable and clean. We had a small problem with the tub water not draining, and maintenance was available to fix it. I had a charge from the hotel after leaving for one small face towel for almost $6, so that was a problem because we didn't know a towel had been misplaced. Overall I enjoyed my stay for the price, which was very reasonable, so I would stay at this location again.

Pic. shows yow by the water not so you are on the other side of st.

The bathroom door was off the hinges My friend fixed it. The room was across the street from the beach not beachview as i was told by orbitz rep. It over looked a nasty canal.

THIS HOTEL WAS THE WORST HOTEL I'VE EVER STAYED AT. FOR STARTERS THEY SAID IT WAS BY THIE SEA. RHE HOTEL ISN'T EVEN ON THE SAME SIDE OF THE ROAD AS THE SEA. WE WERE ON THE TOP FLOOR AND THE ELEVATOR DIDN'T WORK. WHEN WE GOT IN OUR ROOM, IT WAS CLEAN, BUT SMELLED STALE. THE SAFE WAS BROKEN SO IT KEPT BEEPING. MAINTENANCE CAME IN TO FIX IT, AND WAS IN THE ROOM FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES, SO ME AND MY WIFE WERE STUCK IN THE ROOM. HE FINALLY DECIDED HE COULDN'T FIX IT, SO HE TOOK THE BATTERIES OUT (WHICH IS WHAT I ASKED HIM TO DO FROME THE VERY BEGINNING. STAFF WAS RUDE. IF YOU SAID HI OR GOODMORNING TO THEM, THEY WOULD JUST LOOK AT YOU LIKE YOU WAS THE DEVIL. ME AND MY WIFE USUALLY GO TO DAYTONA TWICE A MONTH DURING THE SUMMER, BUT BECAUSE IT WAS HER 40TH BIRTHDAY, I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. WAS THE WORST WEEKEND WE'VE HAD IN 5 YEARS. THIS IS THE FIRST REVIEW I HAVE EVER DONE, BUT I FELT I NEEDED TO DO IT, SO OTHERS DON'T GET SCREWED THE WAY I DID.

The place was run down. There was mold on the ceiling. The bathtub was dirty and rust on the ceiling. The carpet was old and dirty looking. If you can pay extra and stay somewhere else.

Third time staying here, always a clean room and comfortable bed. construction was a bit of a pain this last time. The elevator was out and had to lug bags up the stairs.

I needed a less expensive option for a conference I was attending and needed it to be walking distance from the conference hotel. This hotel, at ~half the cost of the other and less than half a mile away, was perfect. Pros: -Cost -Location, yes you must cross the street to get to the beach but it is right there and there are stores, restaurants and more within easy walking distance. -Room size, double/double would have been adequate for 2 more would have been tight. -Fridge and microwave -Staff was pleasant Cons: -Hotel is old and could use a facelift -Elevator is even older and has no air circulation. Luckily I try to take the stairs as much as possible, I needed the exercise and elevators creep me out anyway. -a previous guest had apparently left seafood in the fridge and, though clean, still held the rotten fish odor. -all the ACs leave their condensation on the walkways and it rains down on the levels below. You can't help but walk through it. Also lots of condensation in the room if you like it warmer than 72 degrees. -bed sheets were old but clean. The cons are all tolerable if you're on a budget. To address some of the other bad reviews I read: Staff was courteous, accommodating and invisible. They were not rude; previous guest had taken the battery out of the remote and it was replaced promptly. The hotel is across the street from the beach. It can be busy and care should be taken when crossing. If you want to be on the beach, pony up the cash.

The room was good for the price. The lagoo few was actually really cool. Lots of neat of wildlife to look at. The office staff was friendly. The hotel cleaning crew is rude and will act like its a pain for them to have to move to let us pass on the narrow hall ways. They hang out by the elevator and will not move to let you pass when trying to carry things. Day two of our stay are room was still not cleaned by 1:30. We called down and the office staff said they would be there at 2:30. We went and took our showers after being at the beach and where almost finished at 1:50 when they came by. I told her give me 5 mins and will be out. She said okay. When we where done I stepped in to the next room where she was and said we are done. She said okay she will clean it next. We left came back at 5 and the room was left in touched. I called down and the office staff apologized and said they would send someone up. The supervisor came up and apologized and asked what happens. I explained. I told her if we could get some towels we would be fine. She went and got us a few towels and offered to take our trash. She was very nice. The next morning was when we where suppose to check out. Check out is at 10. The cleaning staff was at our down at 8 wanting to clean our room. We explained we where not ready. She was hateful and walked away. She went into the room beside ours and stared playing loud Music. The cleaning crew has not respect for the guest.We where treated like a inconvenience.

room was clean, but walk to beach was a lot longer that reported on website, lumpy pillows, when asked for extra stuff like wash cloths had to go and get them, internet super slow, elevator slow

This hotel was pretty bad.... Nothing worked... Wifi didn't work... Ice machine broken...lamp didn't work... This hotel needs loads of help...Also the dude at the front desk had no life in him, that was our first hint this hotel wasn't going to be the greatest... Definitely not worth the money we paid.. More like 50 bucks!

Location it's good.. But that it..not sure if I will recommended

Considering what we paid per night, I was pleasantly surprised. This is an older hotel across the street from the beach. However, the beds where very comfortable and the room was clean.

Front desk staff treats you like a criminal. I was not a party animal but a responsible 48 year old mother with two responsible teenagers. I got the attitude from the moment we checked in. I thought the exterior and office were run down. Parking lot is full of potholes. Inside my room was adequate although the water pressure was a trickle at times and the toilet never stopped running. Low class people staying there. My car was less than a year old and somebody beat my door up and scrapped the paint off with their car door I guess. Overall bad experience. I will not be back.

We had a great time the room was clean and comfortable! I would go back for sure!!
