      Historical Traveler Reviews Surfside Hotel Daytona Beach

      Pretty Run Down

      from

      This hotel used to be the Holiday Inn but was changed over to the Surfside. I stayed there for a night during bike week. The hotel is definitly on the old side. Pretty run down. The beds sagged and there was rust in the room. You could tell they had tried to paint over things to make them look newer. Very friendly though. If you are only looking for a cheap place to stay this works..but definitly not good quality.

      Horrible

      from

      My family and I drove all the way from Virginia (800 miles) to stay in this hotel. The front desk people were very rude and it took a long time just to get a key. When we finally managed to get a key and went to the room it was dirty and faced the parking lot. (The room was supposed to be oceanfront) When my husband contacted the front desk they told him maybe they could move us one floor up, but we would still be facing the parking lot! The employees are nasty and rude and would not accomodate us. We feel like this was a classic bait and switch. Even after a 12 hour drive I would not stay in that horrific place. We went to the Days Inn Tropical Seas down the street. It was sooo much better. Cheaper too!

      Worst holiday inn experience ever

      from

      This Holiday Inn is not what I would expect from a Holiday Inn. At a rate of $100 per night, I would gladly spend an extra $50-100 a night to get something better. For starters, the outside of the hotel looks shabby but once you reach the lobby its pretty decent. However, once I reached my hotel room, I was uncomfortable, and it wasn't very homely. I wouldn't even walk around the room with no shoes on. For example, I was in a room with a kitchenette which was a plus. However, the fact that the refrigerator was rusted and looked like something out of the 1970s was a negative. They really do need to invest in some new refrigerators. 2nd example: the bed, if you sit on the edge of it, it popped up. 3rd example, which was totally disgusting to me. I dropped something on the bathroom floor so I had to bend under the bathroom countertop to pick it up which meant that I had to see the towels that were hanging out the pipes that were there to stop the water from leaking. This is something that should have been professionally fixed by a plumber

      Great Place to Stay and fun people there too!!

      from

      I stayed here for 5 nights and I have no complaints whatsoever. The room was huge, bed was comfy, housekeeping kept it very clean... and the staff was helpful and friendly.. I was there during the race week and it was alot of fun. They had this July 4th BBQ and dj near the pool on Saturday which was a great way to kick off the race day!! Hotel is right on the beach, has 8 floors and I was on the 7th.. the view was amazing.... pool was huge and somewhat clean...It was a fun place to stay if you like to have fun and stay up late... there seemed to always be someone in the pool or on the beach and the $$ is worth it..... also.. if a guy named Matt is reading this and checked in on Thursday or Friday, contact me!! I was the girl in the turqiuose bathing suit and the chick you ran into at Hooters on Friday night..... you seemed to be there with your mom maybe, and that young married couple, you wore a pink t-shirt that said Stud on it.... just wanted to get to know you so e-mail me!!!

      A Dump...Shabby??? Absolutely not!!

      from

      I'm from North Carolina and I decided to take my family on a trip to the Daytona Beach area. Since it was so distant from where I live, I had no clue as to quality of the motels in this location. I've stayed at Holiday Inns in other locations and I have been satisfied with them for the most part. So, I was interested in the Holiday Inn located at Daytona Beach Shores.

      I came to this website before my trip to check out comments by folks who had chance to visit this particular Holiday Inn. Wow...the comments were disturbing. I thought that I might have made a mistake. But...I took a chance and went ahead with my plans to stay at this Holiday Inn.

      Since my wife and I have six children, we shared two rooms at the hotel. Believe me...this Holiday Inn is great! It is an older hotel...but the innkeepers try very hard to keep it clean and updated. The staff people were nice and pleasant to deal with. The rooms were nice and comfy. The maid service was excellent.

      The hotel is on the oceanfront and it has a nice pool. The lobby is well-maintained and comfortable. We were located on the eighth floor and enjoyed looking at the ocean from the outside deck.

      I can't understand all the negative comments. The folks who run this hotel try hard to please their customers and they have done an excellent job.

      As for the little Italian restaurant across the street...Wow, the food is exceptionally tasty. You simply would not believe how good the food is and they serve it abundantly. I think the name of the restaurant is "Popular Italian Restaurant." I want to go back to Daytona Shores just to eat Shrimp Scampi at this place again.

      Anyway, this Holiday Inn is a great place to take your family. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

      Shabby but quite acceptable

      from

      3 weeks after the worst run of hurricans to run through these parts and unsurprizingly there was some damage done to the hotel - but nothing that really detracted from our stay. A bit of water damage here and there.

      The hotel itself was OK, nothing fantastic and no breakfast buffet when we stayed there.

      Had a nice view of the beach and ocean - and they're right it is the quiet end of the beach - we hardly saw anyone out and about.

      If you don't fancy the hotel restaurant for dinner the Italian restaurant almost opposite is worth running the gauntlet of the road in front for - the meatballs were to die for.

      Would we go back? Not sure, probably a little too out of the way for us, but you never know!

      Needs a rebuild

      from

      We've travelled a lot in the States and often stay at Holiday Inns as they usually provide a predictably good standard that is good value for money, but I suppose there has to be an exception to every rule! This hotel is very tired - the furnishings are worn and shabby and the whole place is non to clean. We stayed on the final night of a wonderful three week tour, on our way back to Miami and a flight home to the UK. We 'treated' ourslves to a seaview and balcony - some treat! The room stank of tobacco, was dirty and very noisy. The lifts were often unavailable. The staff didn't appear to care. Sorry Holiday Inn, but this is one of your worst establishments that urgently needs replacing.

      Hotel Unhappiness

      from

      My family and I decided to stay at the Holiday Inn Daytona Beach Shores because it was part of a time-share package. Unfortunately, had we known this was the case, we would have stayed elsewhere -- anywhere. There was not a bailman around at checkout to handle our luggage and the service was extremely poor. I am not quite sure why the Holiday Inn would want to be associated with this resort.

      Shouldn't be a Holiday Inn

      from

      I felt this aging hotel was not up to the quality that Holiday Inn wants to represent. The blue and white ticking covered mattress felt like it was 30 years old. The entire hotel felt 3rd rate and shabby for the over $100 off-season price for a single. I would not stay here again. I was planning on two nights and checked out early.

      Nice & Quiet in Daytona Beach

      from

      I went away for a weekend on the beach and decided to try out the Holiday Inn. We chose the Holiday Inn Daytona Beach Shores over the other ones because it advertised how it was on the "quiet end" of the beach. And it actually was! Outstanding service made our stay very enjoyable. I think I've found a nearby getaway location for years to come.

      The most productive and diversified areas of the refuge are the marshes. These shallow water grasslands provide a home for crabs, worms, clams and fish, which attract animals higher in the food chain such as birds, river otters, American alligators and raccoons. Refuge marshes attract hundreds of thousands of migratory birds every ...

      Wow, day 2 started with an awesome breakfast. We then decided it was time to head south to Miami Springs to visit other family. As seems to be the theme of this vacation our plans
      soon changed.

      We had just started driving South when Peggy decided to give Aunt Nancy a call to check out plans for our arrival in Miami Springs.. Good thing because we found that she was very sick. Very hoarse and very exhausted. Peggy ...
