    Historical Traveler Reviews Tropical Winds Oceanfront Hotel Daytona Beach

    Loved it!!

    from

    My husband and I stayed here the night before the Daytona 500. The staff was friendly and our room was excellent. We had a ocean view room that we loved. We already have reservations for the Pepsi 400 in July.

    Treated so well

    from

    Lookinf through pictures of a past trip I am reminded of the Tropical Winds Ocean Front Hotel, Daytona Beach - Florida.

    Pleasant memories of a receptive helpful staff, a clean room - even my wife would agree and the beach.

    Requests were quickly filled, directions to various locations and advice on where to head were correct.

    The rooms and hallway were quiet at appropriate times.

    All of this added well to our time and enjoyment.

    No question - whern in the area I would return.

    Very rude clerk

    from

    We reserved 4 rooms 2 with kitchens 2 without I ask to be placed on the highest level with no smoking was told no problem will put 3 rooms on 7th and 1 on 6th when we got there they told me can not do and wanted to put us on 2nd floor was told that they dont hold rooms like that. The hotel (clerk) argued with me and treated me like i was a room maid. very unprofessional. His name was David and he was the one that told me there would be no problem reserving the 7th floor. The rooms smelled really bad. The ac did not work well the balcony sliding door would not open very easy. and the

    elevator broke down several times We had a 79 yr old with us walking up and down 6 flights of stairs. on our last night of stay David was arguing and threating to take another guest out side to beat his xxx. This is not how to run a hotel. David needs to be told that the customer is always right even when the customer is wrong. I will never stay at that hotel again. In fact i had such a horrible time there i will go

    to panama city in the future where they know how to treat there guest. We didnt go any where else because we had family fly from england then drive 1000 miles to the motel we were tired and didnt want to waist another day to get a different room .

    thanks

    Tropical Winds~

    from

    Tropical Winds, Daytona Fl~ Our family had a pleasant 7 day stay. Staff was friendly and helpful, rooms were older but clean. I am sure there are nicer places along the beach to stay, but we were more than pleased with Tropical Winds. After all, we did not go on vacation to spend our time inside. All we needed a room for was to eat, sleep, and shower. We would definately go back. Bubba Gump was one of the better resturants we ate in. Inlet Harbor was one of the worst.

    OK if desperate for a place to stay

    from

    Our family had scheduled a 4 night stay at the Tropical Winds Hotel in April of 2004. Their hotel website seemed nice enough and AAA gave it a 3 star rating, so I had no reservations about staying there. If you want to quit reading now, I have four words for you...DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!! Luckily we were able to check out early after just one night and stay at a nicer hotel. Here's just a sampling of its shortcomings: Indoor heated pool was so heavily chlorinated it had a white foam on top and it was literally painful to breathe. In lieu of the indoor pool, we thought the outdoor pool would be fine. Wrong! It is small and was ice cold. Why heat one and not the other? The beds are very stiff and uncomfortable. Pillows were soft though. No blankets included on the bed. Just a thin sheet and bedspread. The front desk did not even have any on hand to give out. Hotel claims to be newer but wallpaper peeling badly in the bathroom and a hole in the tub.

    Stay here if there is nowhere else to stay in town; even so, it might be worth it to drive up to Palm Coast or to Bunnell and stay there instead. We ended up at the Ivanhoe Resort for the rest of our stay. It was roughly the same price per night and quantum leaps ahead in quality.

    Credit Card Thieves

    from

    I reserved two rooms for three nights during Spring Bike Week 2004.

    Both rooms were paid in full before leaving. When I recieved my credit card statement, the hotel had added a third room to my credit card. The hotel has acknowledged the misunderstanding but refuses to remove it from my credit card. They have only offered to give me a room concession. I simply want my $500 returned that they have stolen from me and I do not wish to ever return. I would caution all people who considers staying at Tropical Winds.

    Has kitchenette

    from

    We were comped this room by a timeshare sales group. It was very nice for our family and included a kitchenette which aides in an economical visit to the beach. We will consider staying there again as paying customers.

    YUCK!!!

    from

    We couldn't even spend the night. There was a very nasty smell in the hallway, elevator area, like something was dead or rotten. The couch in our room was so dirty and sticky and they just had a white bed sheet spread over it. However, the layed the nasty matching pillows on top of the sheet. There were hairs in bathroom. It was very gross. The TV didnt work right. The clerk at the desk, offered our money back, then when we went back to our room for our loggage and came back to check out he changed his mind. Refused to get a supervisor and said he was about to kick us the *&$% out. After some words, we did get refunded.

    P.S. Dont eat at Bubba Gumps.

    Great Time

    from

    This hotel is great. Awsome oceanfront views, friendly workers, spacious rooms. We have been making Daytona and Tropical Winds Hotel our family vaction spot for the past 4 years. Cant wait until next month when we will be there again.

    Family Place

    from

    Wife and I visited Daytona Beach 1st time in 15 years, Tropical Winds was fine for family, not much other activity. Nothing within walking distance for entertainment. Nothing for adult or children to do after sun goes down. No food after 2:00. Staff very friendly and helpful, working with what they have to offer. Good place to stay and sleep, but if wanting action stay somewhere else.

    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 …

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 ...

    ... driveway, we had our first inkling that some changes were in the offing.

    During our absence, daughter Holly, her boyfriend Troy, and grandson Leighton had not only remodeled our guest bathroom, but had installed a new patio door and floor tile in the family room, a new A/C wall-unit in the family room, and laid new tile on the walkway to the front door!

    On top of that, although it was difficult to get a true sense of it until ...

    On our journey north to Savannah, we decided to stay in Daytona for the night. This is a short stay. We are in a motel on the world famous Daytona beach which is great, for only $30 each for the night.

    the first thing we did when we arrived was go for a long walk down the road to the local mall. We got subway for dinner, then walked back along the beach. We saw the Daytona speedway on the way in. It is one mammoth venue.

    We then spent a good hour ...
