Plaza Ocean Club Hotel
Travel Blogs from Daytona Beach
At 9:15 last evening, when the wheels of the MD-80 touched down on the runway at the Daytona Beach airport, our 80-day odyssey came to a screeching halt. We'd been awake since 5:00 AM, Paris time, to take a private shuttle to the Charles DeGaulle-Roissy airport for our return flight to Atlanta via Air France.
As most of you are aware, traveling by air has become an ordeal, with crowded airports, the agonizing security screenings, ...
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 ...
Today we were up bright and early and where back on the I 95 to joined the heavy traffic heading North. Sitting in the big Captain Chairs with the cruise control on at 60 mph it is very easy and comfortable to drive for hours and not getting tired. Speed limits are 65 and sometimes 70 on the interstate roads and most have three lanes becoming 5-6 when passing city's. Our next stop over night was the ...
we have no schedule
... too during that original launch which wasn't there now, but still, it looked very basic for the complexity of the task. And the fact the control building was only a few metres away was crazy. Especially that now the current control building was miles away from the launch sites. We drive onto the space centre and towards the large assembly building. There was something about a large eagle nest off to the left hand side of the road. We weren't here to see eagles. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Plaza Ocean Club Hotel Daytona Beach
OIf this is your only choice - STAY HOME!!!!
The old Radission in Daytona Beach is the worst hotel. The Radission is now called the Plaza Ocean Club. It compares to a $29/night interstate motel. The room was dirty and the tub would not drain. The entire hotel smelled of sewer. Parking was another issue, but it seems most hotels in Daytona suffer with this problem. We arrived during Bike Week and could not change hotels without losing all of our money - prepaid, no refunds. We won't be back!
Don't stay here
this property is horrible like the others owned by oceans resorts. stay far away from all of them. not only are they price too high but the service sucks. oceans resorts sucks and i advise anyone to stay else where.!!!!!be afraid
Just returned from a three night stay.To many problems to list.Stay some place else.
Ok, we came down for a last minute vacation on Delta. Flying into Daytona cost a little more but it was worth the time in traffic we saved. We went to a quaint little hotel (not a good idea). The people were friendly but we wanted more to do around us since we did not rent a car. The hotel was also a little run down. The second day we found the Radisson. The people were not only friendly but the hotel was in better condition. We also had restaurants galore around us and the Plaza Resort next door had a Spa. Our hotel had a live band on Saturday and people were everywhere. All in all we spent six days and found something to do each night. Gotta do this again.
Although all these reviews seem to be negative our trip started out the same. When we arrived check in was a breeze. I was highly supprized to see the GM and Front Office Manager checking guests in. They were both very plesent and offered us an upgrade. The room was a disaster after such a good checkin. The bed spead and sheets were dirty, stains in the carpet, trays in the halls, and worse of all the housekeeper and security guard yelling at each other. The room was not to our standards so I contacted a manager. I spoke with Corinee at the front desk. She immedatly moved us to a new and wonderful room 701. This was so much better. She appologized and took our upgrade fee off. She was great.
I selected your hotel because of it being rated as a four star hotel.
Just got back yesterday and couldn't wait to get to my computer to warn people about this hotel. First of all, they say on their website and in brochures they are "all oceanfront" rooms. However the bait and switch comes when you check in and they tell you you are in a "cityview" room but for additional money you can upgrade to an oceanview. We complained then agreed. We were asked what type of bedding we wanted, we got to our room and it was the exact opposite. 2 Doubles after I was just told we had a King.The bathroom had 1 towel, no hand towels, no washclothes. After complaining a few more towels arrived 5 hours later. The balcony had coke spilled on it from previous guests and was all sticking. Not to mention the exhaust from your neighbors air conditioner is on your balcony. You couldn't stand to be on the balcony from the heat blowing out the air conditioner.We walked on the the beach Friday night before bed time. We tried to get all the sand off but when I awoke Saturday morning I realized we had gotten some sand in the sheets. Guess what ? It was still there when we went to bed Saturday night -- they never changed the sheets!!! How's that for gross? Not only that when the cleaned our room we were down to one towel again and no more ever arrived.The elevators take a good 20 minutes to get to the upper floors. The bar is way overpriced and the service is horrible.This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! By the way, go outside and take a look at the hotel, notice that all the rooms do face the ocean. Oh, and I forgot to mention they hit you for a $5 a day parking fee as well.Stay away from this hotel...it is awful!!!!!
Maid Stole My Jewelry
MY husband and I recently stayed at the Daytona Radisson Resort 051803 thru 052303 and during that stay I had my watch and a diamond necklace stolen by our maid. She was the only person that entered our room during our stay. The manager said he would turn the report over to the main office and that was all he said, he did not appologize for his staffs sticky fingers. The manager ran a computer printout of our room and the maid was the only one in the room. My husband and I have stayed in motels all over the country and this is the very first time we have had anything stolen. And besides all of that the motel was not very clean. Not Up to Radisson standards form previous cities. overpriced !! PLEASE BEWARE
Ok for spring break hotel
would not go back. It's nice for kids on break but thats about it. hotel furniture torn. plastic furniture on deck. air conditioner from next room blows onto your balcony-lots of noise and heat. Good for Daytona I guess; which seems to be a tacky place with many homeless who want to be your friend at the pool and on the street. Like the other reviewer, I got annoyed with housekeeping when they hovered and banged at our door at 10:55 until we left at 11:07 and they called also from the front desk.
Our room was entered while we were there by a person using a pass card. This person just said wrong room and left. The front desk had no explanation. As housekeeping was in the hall I feel they may have been involved. Even though our do not disturb sign was out they were knocking on our door 3 times in one morning to ask if we wanted towels, etc. We had to park across 5 lanes of traffic. The accomodations were certainly not worth the $189.00 per night we paid.
