Ocean Court Motel
Travel Blogs from Daytona Beach
This was our first day at the beach. We drove our Car to the beach and parked it right on the beach only a few yards from the sea. We spent almost the whole day in the atlantic ocean and liked it very much. Later in the early evening we drove to Orlando where we stay for two days at the Rosen Inn near Universal ...
After a short stop @ the Welcome Center on I95, where we got a lot of informations about Florida, we drove straight to Daytona Beach, where we found a room @ the Holiday Inn Oceanfront. After visiting our room we went for the beach and had a long walks to the pier and we ate dinner at Johnny ...
... no overt symptoms of withdrawal seem to be plaguing us, but it's only a matter of time before we yearn for a baguette, or reminisce about the people we met and the amazing sights we've seen. In the not-too-distant future, we're hoping to write an "epilogue" for this blog in an effort to capture our thoughts and impressions of the many special moments we shared together, and with friends.
Love to all our friends and family,

... swimming in the water. I am in the hotel now updating my blog. They claim that Daytona Beach is the most famous in the world. It may be the most famous, but it has nothing on Australias beaches.
It was nice, however the sand was very hard. The water was very warm, probably as warm as an indoor pool.
I'm about to go to bed. Tomorrow we are going for a swim in the beach in the morning, having short look around and then continuing North To Savannah.
... lovely surprise. We might catch up with them later next week.
We had a lot of driving to do that day as we planned to be by Loretta that evening so our rest and lunch stops were kept to a minimum. We arrived in Madison Virginia just after 20.00 in the last of day light. Loretta met us at a gas station and then we followed her to her log cabin in the woods. It is absolutely magic in the forest of Virginia.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ocean Court Motel Daytona Beach
Stayed here for one night in November, and I wish we'd have had more time. What a fabulous find this motel was! The owner was exceptionally friendly and very helpful. The rooms were a bit on the small side for more than 2 people, but very clean and equipped with all the amenities you'd need. The beach was only steps away from our room and the tiki huts are an awesome place to have your morning coffee. Lovely pool area and the grounds are well taken care of. Next time we visit Daytona, this hidden treasure will be the first place on our list!
I LOVE THIS PLACE!
I go to the beach a lot and find myself always going back here. The staff is great, very nice rooms, and perfect location! The rocking chairs by the ocean and a big plus!!! I HIGHLY recommend.
An Excellent Choice
My daughter wanted to plan a family get away for us to refresh and renew. She searched for over a week and found the Ocean Court Motel. Nestled between some of the bigger, less personal hotels, the Ocean Court, reminds us of a time when innkeepers were friendly and interested in their guests comfort. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice. Dave Hands and family make you feel like family. The other guests are long-time returnees who also have the "family" mindset. Even the housekeeping staff made us feel welcome. We loved it! The ocean is right out the back door, dining and shopping on the strip is out the front. We will be among the "frequent flyers" at the Ocean Court Motel!!!!!
Quite, clean and comfortable...
What a pleasant surprise to find such clean, quiet and comfortable accommodations in the midst of so many other choices. The management at Ocean Court is fantastic. They go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Thank you Ocean Court for a memorable visit and for sending home my pillow!
Very nice motel. Clean place and very nice host. Would recommand to any one. Large heated pool facing the ocean. BBQ facilities near your door.
Great small motel right on the beach
The Ocean Court is a very nice place,friendly owners,clean well kept rooms,nice pool,gas grills,very good location right on the beach also golfing packages.We really like staying here.
I'm almost afraid to tell everyone how great this motel is because it would be terrible if they were so busy I couldn't get a room. But I have to tell the truth... It's like taking a trip back in time. I love this motel and everyone involved with it. Dave and Lynda... their entire family are fantastic.
Last year when we were making dinner, we needed a large pot to boil water for spaghetti but our kitchen didn't have one. When we asked Dave, he went to the store and bought one. You don't find that kind of service at a "big name" hotel.
Everyone in our family stays at Ocean Court at various times during the year and we all love it. Matter of fact, my two daughters are there right now... We've made terrific friends with other guests at the motel and now plan our travel around each other's trips so we can all be there together.
Thank you very much, Dave & Lynda... you're great!!

We have been using the Ocean court for over 10 yrs for our over night beach trips. They are very hospitable and always make you feel welcomed. Great Hotel.
Best Kept Secret
Ocean Court is the best kept secret in Daytona Beach. Managed and owned by Dave and Lynda Hands and family, it's clean, well-kept, and safe. The entire staff are friendly and work hard to make your stay enjoyable. Located directly on the beach with a heated fresh water pool, it is small and reminds one of the cozy mom-and-pop motels of the 50's. I woudn't stay anywhere else and I find any excuse to get over for a weekend or vacation.
A jolly good welcome at the Ocean Court Motel.
Well I have stayed at the Ocean Court Motel 2315 S. Atlantic Avenue, Daytona Beach Shores, FL 32118 for the last 3 years. It is run by a British Chappy called Dave Hann and lovely wife Lynda and family. I came over from the United Kingdom for Bike Week In 2000 and then returned twice in 2001 with my family, and yes you guessed it, i'm back again this year. The whole family are so friendly, and it helps make your stay very pleasant. The Ocean Court Motel reminds me of that film "Battries not included". Its a small Motel inbetween the other taller hotels, but it gives you a safe felling. Nothing is to much trouble and they all look after you, even down to the chaimbermaides are also helpful. There is a great swiming pool to the rear of the motel, over looking the ocean, a sun bathing area and if you want to make a barbbie, you can do that at a purpose build area.
I could go on and on for ever, but I will leave it to you, So go on don't wait, make your reservation with Dave at the Ocean Court Motel, and see for your self what a great place it is.
P.s If you like golf Dave is your Man. Keep up the good work Dave and your team, see you soon !......Ian Jones ("The Welsh Wizard")
