Great Family Vacation
Our family has stayed at the Sun Viking at least a dozen times. It has everything a family needs for a comfortable and affordable vacation. Lots to do on the beach. Rooms are always clean and maintained. Kitchens have full size refrig which is great for lots of soft drinks and ice. Indoor pool for days when the kids are burnt. Walk to inexpensive restaraunts. Rent scooters and ride miles on the beach or walk. We'll be back.
We stayed there on April 4, 2003. Loved the hotel. Didn't have any problem with the staff. They have a waterslide, playground, indoor and outdoor pool. It is on the beach. The price was very reasonable. The food in the Cafe was good. We would definitely stay there again.
Rude front desk, mean people
THe front desk is the rudest, unfriendliest group I have ever seen. It is a small hotel, lousy parking, and cramped property. You think the owner and employees think they are the Waldorf Astoria the way they act. Not a smile, not a Thank you, could care less. The only nice guy was a bearded man. The General Manager cuts you off and asks rudly, "what do you want, get to the point" The fat lady at the desk has never smiled and the older lady is as mean. With a place that can be missed, you'd think the service would be better. SMILE folks. RUDE and Cruddy property. A topless place called Biggins is accross the street. We asked a friendly guy who was detailing the car about the hotel. He agreed that the owner thinks he is all that, and he too was met with rude and un smiling front desk people. He agreed they think they are the center of the Universe. He said he was the owner of Mobile Car Care which is a national company and used the hotel for his customers when they visited Daytona for sales. He said never again. He never recveived a thank you, and his franchisees said the front desk was as rude as they come, when asked how the stay was. He laughed at they way they act. I took his advise and looked elsewhere.
Great Family Hotel
This is a great place to stay for families. We have stayed here three years in a row and are coming back again this year.
I did not like this place very much but oh well it is ok for a hotel.
This year will be our 6th stay at the Sun Viking. We have come to appreciate the consistency of cleanliness, upkeep and ammenities. The outdoor and indoor pools are heated in the winter months for year round use. The kids love the water slide. The glassed in pool with it's waterfall and tropical vegetation is like paradise. A favorite is the breakfast/lunch cafe. Excellent menu with reasonable non-tourist prices. The kids look forward to each year's visit. Highly recommended!
Great place for families on a budget
We love this place so much, we keep coming back. The rooms are modern, tropically decorated, and clean. The staff is friendly and accomodating. And you can't beat the price. Don't be put off by the quirky facade. You'll love the glassed in pool with it's waterfall and snack shop for those days when it's just too hot or the occational storm and you can't beat the great waterslide at the outdoor pool. All in all you will be pleased you found Sun Viking and you'll be back too (besides they give you a discount if you do!).
In this age of worry regarding kids, it is nice to go to a place where they know your kids' names and watch out for them. Great place to stay!!
Great family resort
This is a great place to stay. This is not a drive by. You need to spend the night to appreciate it. The kids will have a great time so you can relax. 2 pools (one in one out) hot tub, water slide,pool side cafe. We lived it!
Very nice place to stay for a family
We have stayed at Sun Viking Lodge the past 2 years and have loved it. The outdoor pool has a slide and there is an indoor pool also. The beach is great! The rooms are very nice. The only problem we had is one day they forgot to clean our room- but took care of it when we called.

One day we went for a walk around the area and found this really cool street with old oak trees and it was designated a scenic drive so it was busy with traffic. They should make it walking, it was very nice when no cars were going by. Beautiful home, one even had a huge elk in his driveway of small ...
... can drive on the beach down here between 2 signs - crazy.
There was some kind of competition with the seadoo kind of machines. The weather is nice, but the wind makes it cooler than you would think.
So glad to be in one spot for a week, then we move to our second spot. ...
... an easy drive! It rained all the time and at times it was coming down so hard we had to slow way down to see the road! We saw more lightning and heard more thunder in a day than we've seen in years in SD!

... he likes the challenge of learning something new too. After we found the right battery and ordered it we drove through Jacksonville to get to the A1A. Jacksonville seems to be a very working class city and as it was Sunday, the streets were very very quiet. It took awhile to make our way through the streets but we managed to get through Jacksonville and onto the A1A. I suggest if you ever drive down the east coast of Florida and have time on your hands ...
