Daytona Inn Beach Resort is the best.
My husband had business in Daytona so we stayed at the Daytona Inn Beach Resort. We had a beautiful room and the hotel staff were the greatest. I am planning another trip to Daytona and we will be staying there again.
I am baffled by the few good reviews for this place. Could they have possibly seen the same facility I did? My family and I booked a room for 3 nights in June without doing our homework. Lesson learned. The bathrooms were moldy, the ceilings filthy, and the beds terribly uncomfortable. The worst, though, was the carpet. We didn't realize it at first, but after walking around on the floors in barefeet our feet were black. It was absolutely disgusting. Having a 5 and 3 year old, we refused to let them play on the floor. We were stuck the first night, but left the next morning. The one positive I can say is that they refunded the final two nights without much fuss.
Stay away from this place, there is a reason the price is lower than other resorts in the area. We were booked there with 3 other families all in town for a conference, and all of us left and found other accomodations.
Terrific Location - Quality Rooms!!
My family and I recently came to Daytona Beach to enjoy the SUN, BEACH and GOLF. Not only is the area filled with wonderful golfing opportunities, but the accommodations and amenities at the Daytona Inn Beach Resort are FIRST CLASS in every respect. The Management and Staff go out of their way to present a clean and hospitable envronment. The location could not be better - Oceanfront, and within walking distance of restaurants and entertainment venues. The price is right too, and we are already looking forward to a return visit to the Daytona Inn Beach Resort.
Don't waste your time!!!!
After viewing web site and seeing the nice rooms I called directly and booked a room for my family. Later, I went back to show my daughter the hotel and saw all the negative reviews. I then called the hotel and stressed my concern about what I had read and that I didn't want to arrive late to find that I had made a bad choice. I was assured that I had a deluxe oceanfront 1 bedroom unit that had been renovated. We arrived to find a dump......The room was nasty! The room had not been renovated as promised, the toilet wouldn't flush, food on the floor and the cushions to the couch were all flipped up. In additon the ice makers weren't working, and making a loud alarm beeping sound that could be heard out in the parking lot. Needless to say we didn't stay the night. Even though I was promised a good room I will say the front desk and reservation staff were extremely courteous.
We booked this place judging by pictures alone,What a mistake,bloody bed sheets,matted down filthy carpet,rusty-mildewed tub,door looked as if it had been kicked down before,elevator belonged at a amusement park as a thrill ride insted of in a hotell,paint was pelling off walkways and armraillings.I complained to the front desk and was told that if I didnt stay they couldnt refund my money for the first night, since I had allready checked in, I told them to keep the money!!! they needed it more than I did and went up the road to the Holliday inn. Dont be fooled by these pics on the net this place is a DUMP!!!!
Loved the convenience of the DIBR
Stayed recently. Excellent service. Great location. Right on the beach! Couldn't ask for a better spot in Daytona. The outside of the hotel is a little old-fashioned looking (like most beach hotels), but our room was nice (#229). Kids slept in one room; we slept in the other. All the comforts of home, including a great stove and oven to cook on, and a comfy sofa bed to watch TV. Everything is in walking distance from the hotel -- restaurants, shopping, Main Street Boardwalk. 5 minutes by car to the Daytona Airport, Daytona Speedway, Volusia Mall, and access to I-95 (all on the same street as the hotel - International Speedway Blvd). No worries about getting lost :o) For the price, I couldn't find a better deal. Took us 30 seconds every morning to get onto the beach. And it's in the No-Drive section of the beach. Didn't have to worry about the kids getting hit by a car while hanging out on the beach. Nice peace of mind. From what I'm told, all rooms there are decorated differently. When I go back I'll ask for this room again. Didn't have any problems with it...
Thanks for helping a lady in distress!
On Saturday March 26 I travelled to daytona Beach to attend a conference the next day. I left home in such a hurry that I left my hotel accommodation information at home and I could not remember the name of my hotel. I was very upset and I went to your hotel but alas, it was not the one. However, Lisa and Preeti, at your Front Desk were kind enough to help me and to care that I was confused and sought help to calm me down.In just a few minutes Lisa and Preeti made some phone calls to hotels with similar names and located my hotel. ASll this and these ladies very capably handled several hotel guests.
I really appreciated your staff helping me through a very difficult time and I will certainly stay at your hotel in future! Thank you to you and your excellent staff for all the good help I received.
No, Not for us
My friends and I stayed at this hotel recently and we found it to be terrible! At first, we had problems with the pricing and had to settle it because we were quoted a certain price and when we arrived we were told something else. Once we entered the room, we made sure that everything was good. Let's just say we found certain items in a drawer that had been used (YUCK)- just use your imagination. The front desk said "I am sorry, I will have a maid come and clean it for you". The ice machines did not work and we had to ask for clean towels. I wished I had read these reviews before picking this location. I would suggest that you save a little more money and go to one that is worth the price so you can have a hassle free time.
After another hotel gave our room away we were sent to Daytona Inn Beach Resort. To begin with our sheets had blood on them, when we called the front desk she was rude about it and said house keeping was gone. Never even stated she was sorry. Told us to come get the sheets. Rooms there are also owned as condos, so dont be surprised when you hear dogs barking all night long and the hotel cant do a thing since they are owners. Our tv was broke and it took 24 hours for a new one since maitence was gone as well. The beds are on the floor and dirty, the showers are dirty, the floors are dirty. NO ice machines work, Its by far the worse place i have ever stayed. I left feeling dirty. I have to agree with the review before this one. SAVE your money and stay at a nice place!
I think the person commenting before me must have made some sort of mistake, because the place my family and I made the mistake of staying at for one nite in April (thank Godness only 1 nite!)was a far cry from anything she has described. This is by far the WORST place i have ever encountered in my entire life!!!! Dirty, nasty, rusty, gross, you name it. I took one look at the 2 rooms I booked for the nite and immediatly called the front desk and had a fit! They sent the head of housekeeping instead of management (probably because of embarrassment) She was okay about it and changed our rooms. We were upgraded from total dumps to almost total dumps. Whoopie. I don't know where in the world they took the pictures on their website...but they sure weren't taken at this resort. I am totally serious...stay in your car before you book a room here. The people that work here are as rude and dumpy looking as the motel itself. Niether ice machines worked, and they have the audacity to make you pay a dollar for a measly cup of coffee in the morning! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY GOING HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On our way to Daytona for the start of bike week we stopped off for a coffee at Starbucks where thanks again to our UK plate we got talking to a biker named Bruce who gave us some route advice for good roads through Texas (the Texas Hills) and also his contact details if we were passing his way we should contact him. We also took his advice on buying a phone from Walmart with 120 free minutes for $30 ...

... the 10th floor overlooking the Daytona beach and Joe's pier. It was a spectacular view around us, both beach & street side. We had 2 double beds in a large room. It was still warm, 83* and the sun breaking thru the clouds. We made most of it being dry and went for a walk along the beach towards the pier. Andy went in the sea, surf was well up & had some big waves coming in. He didn't go out too far, easily seeing it was rough out there. It was not too far to walk ...
... with reminiscing about our families in South Africa.
Louia (our cab driver) had a great personality and drove us from Daytona to Fort Laurderdale with a stop in Melbourne. He took Sapna & Divya to Miami.
On the way to Fort Laurderdale, we had brunch with Pamilla who prepared a feast.
We leave on the Eastern Caribbean cruise on 17/05. No access to technology for a week.
We will soak up the sun and catch up with reading.
