Today we went to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse built in 1887. Surrounding the lighthouse are the original keepers' dwellings with historical artifacts. ( a lot of the tools there reminded me of my Dad) We climbed 203 steps to almost the top of 165 ft Lighthouse and got to walk around the top balcony. Fantastic views of Dayton Beach area and the Inlet areas. David loved it especially looking over the edge....lol NOT!!!! I got some excellent photos, and it ...
Drove to Daytona Beach,no stopping along the way. Nice hotel, right on the beach front. After we got organized off we trotted to the beach for a nice stroll, and a play in the waves, then back to the hotel to lay in the sun on the recliners before having a dip in the pool. Gorgeous day not too hot and the ocean water was so warm. ...
I surprised David with a custom road trip shirt for the trip. We left home at 6:30...Shawna and the grandkids were on hand to say goodbye and take pics of us as we left. We hit light rain briefly and took US 1 all the way into Melbourne to avoid any other rain. We met David's parents at Cheddars for a late dinner and another goodbye and then took I95 North to our first overnight stop...Daytona. While ...
... you will see what i am talking about once you see the pics. Hence we decided to stay back in Daytona for a few more days.
We spent our evenings at Mai tai bar then dinner around the beach
Sloppy Joes restaurant is one of the places i really liked. I tried sloppy joe for the first time loved it!!! if you ok eating beef you should try it!!
... than a Noel Leeming store. I the general area we were sitting I counted 26 of them all playing sports. We walked back to the hotel along the beach, and of course had to putour feet in the Atlantic. It isa pretty cool feeling known we have crossed the entire county from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic and all on bikes. Last day of riding tomorrow which is a little sad as I am sure we could all keep going if it wasn't for family at ...

We were there for the Pepsi 400 also, a total of 5 nites at this dump, we had read previous reviews, called also & was told contruction would be finished by the time we arrived, NO WAY. the Hotel looks NOTHING like the pictures posted on the internet. The place needs to be torn down & start over again, like another person said if it was $50.00 it would have been o.k but $170.00 the dump. I do have to give the staff credit, they were all very nice to us, anything we needed we got, such as no trash can in the room, we didn't want to throw trash on the floor, even tho it was a dump, we don't live that way. If u was out pass 10 or 11 at nite, there was no where to park when u got back to your room, Cabs drivers blocked the whole parking area. Pool looked dirty, no lights around it. In all i was totally disappointed in this place, & would not stay there again.
See the review below mine-it is all true. I too had called the hotel before my trip and was assured these bad reviews were all unfounded. The broken wobbly steps mentioned in the previous person's review? Still broken. Elevator? Still broken. We too had a 3rd floor room. What an exhausting walk up after all day at the beach. Our room was not very clean, and the bathroom was not very clean. There was still major construction going on, very loud and noisy, very late at night.
I trusted the hotel since it was linked to several major, websites. That was my first mistake. To call this place a dump would be a dangerous oversimplification. Of course I was aware that hurricanes had ravaged the area, (I vacation in Volusia County at least once a years). Prior to booking thru an online service, I got the number of the hotel and called them directly. I spoke with 2 different front desk people on two different occassions and was ASSURED, that the hotel was in good condition, and that the damage that remained was primarily cosmetic, (grounds, pool, exterior paint). The elevator was still inoperable, (the hurricane was in '04), and they had booked us on the 3rd floor. There was still MAJOR construction going on starting early in the am and it continued until after 8pm. It appeared that only about 1/3 of the rooms were 'fit' to be occupied. The rooms are located off of an interior corridor and there was no carpet in the hallway. It had been stripped down to the concrete so they every time someone closed a door anywhere on the floor, it sounded like they were storming the beach at Normandy. Also, our hotel was the official/unofficial taxi stand, and everytime we got ready to enter/exit the parking lot we would have to go over to the sleeping cabbies and ask them to move so that we could get into our space. They had the audacity to appear annoyed that we were disturbing them!!
DUMP! STAY AWAY!
This place is a dump! And the staff is very very rude. Oh and have fun trying to get them to clean your room. And if you have alergies all the rooms has mold. Sheets are dirty. Shower was filthly just a overall dump. Needs to be tore down!
For the past two years, my husband, daughter and I stayed at the Atlantic Las Brisas, formally Waters Edge. The only problem we encountered was bad lighting in the bathroom. The first year, we had an oceanview room on the second floor and this past year, we stayed on the third with our older daughter and her boyfriend. They are 24 years old and we all loved the pool area which was very clean. The staff was friendly and the rooms were extremely clean. We had two bedrooms. It is a pure joy to go back year after year and enjoy the beach, pool, and walking distance to the boardwalk. Atlantic Las Brisas has given us nothing but great memories and we look forward to next year!
Atlantic Las Brisas either needs to fix up their motel so that all the rooms look like those in the pictures on their website, or else change the website pictures to reflect what it REALLY looks like. We booked the "Crazy Manager's Special" for 4 nights based on their website's mostly false claims, and it became quite apparent we were the crazy ones for having done so. Yes, we were upgraded from a regular room with no view to one with a partial view of the ocean. The partial ocean view was nice enough if you ignored the build-up of mineral deposits that had dripped down the inside and outside of the window, and if you went out on the balcony for a clearer view, be prepared to stand because there were no chairs. The oceanfront balconies had chairs, but the side balconies did not. Apparently our room sported pictures at one time, but the only evidence of them having been there were the picture hooks left exposed on the wall. Some rooms had new air conditioners, some still had old and crusty ones (like ours). Only a couple rooms had alarm clocks, also listed on the website (not ours). The halls were dingy, the carpet on the stairs and stairways were just plain gross, and several large trash cans were left out in the hallways, presumably for the guests' convenience in emptying their own trash, because the housekeepers certainly didn't. Our trash (one medium container only) was removed one day in four thanks to Vinnie, probably the only person there who actually did any work. Vacuuming was evidently left up to the discretion of the cleaning staff, who chose not to for the whole four days. I also stared at the same smudge on the bathroom mirror for the duration of our stay. Any personal article left on the bed is an excuse to not have to make the bed, but we weren't advised of this rule until we left something on the bed, and then returned to find the bed unmade with a note on it explaining that that was why they couldn't make the bed. (We never did get a note explaining why they couldn't vacuum the floor or empty the trash.) I guess we should count ourselves lucky that we had towels for at least three days, because on the last day we were shorted almost everything, the explanation being they 'ran out.' The 'continental breakfast' listed on the website amounted to nothing more than coffee and about 2 dozen cake donuts, and when they were gone, breakfast was over. Looking for milk and juice for the kids? Look elsewhere. The pool was nice and large, patio furniture looked fairly new. However, around 4:00 they took down all the table umbrellas, even if you were sitting at the table underneath one. The laundry room through which you must pass to get to the pool appeared to be never swept or cleaned. The lounge listed on the website as another amenity is closed. But if you run out of things to do, you can always watch the manager take his little dog for a walk over to the hotel on the south side of the Las Brisas, where he lets it take a poo on their grass, sans scooper. All in all, it was a horrid, filthy motel unable to offer even the most basic services, and a complete scam if you rely on the claims they assert on their website.
Vast difference of opinion!
I was at the Las Brisas just two weeks ago. It has a new owner that is "on property". He has started numerous improvements which were needed. I admit, that from looking at some areas, it had become somewhat run down under the previous owner. However, I talked at length with the new owner and he showed me many things that was currently being improved. Cleaning, repairs, painting and other things were being accomplished during my visit. I was impressed by the new employees he has brought on board. In reference to the above post, prices always increase during special events such as bike week, I was there during a period that would be considered normal vacation times and the price was very much in line with other properties.
Not so hot
i stayed here during Canadian spring break in February 2004. it was pretty terrible. the bathrooms are in rotten shape, the towels, if we got them, weren't always clean, the toilet didn't stop running the entire time, and we found a HUGE cockroach in our room. the security guard was really nice though. the pool/ pool area was really awful too.
the phone service was lousy and even though my room cost the same as everyone else's, i didn't have a microwave or mini fridge. there was lots of mold too.
I stayed here during bike week 2004. My fiance and I were very disappointed about so many things with this hotel. We decided to stay and make the best of things, since we were on vacation! Anyways, the hotel was very overpriced for being such a hole in the wall. Even if our stay was during a special event, it wasn't worth giving the owner our hard earned money for a place that no money is being put into. The sheets on our beds still had stains on them, on the comfortable beds they have. The mirror in the bathroom was cracked on the sides. There was mold on the ceiling in the shower area. The towels weren't supplied to us on a daily basis. Two days in a row we had to ask for the towels ourselves from the lobby, which would've been not that bad, but to make matters worse one of the employees gave us an attitude for asking for them. The one elevator they have hasn't been inspected since 2002, so we never used it. If I had known ahead of time, I would've spent the extra $100 or $200 dollars to stay at a pleasant and more welcoming hotel. In conclusion, I wouldn't wish this upon my worst enemy to stay here.
