Historical Traveler Reviews Perry's Ocean Edge Resort Daytona Beach
Best Hotel Ever
Perry's is the most wonderful resort I have ever stayed at. The service is wonderful. I never had to ask for anything. The resort is constantly spotless and looks wonderful. They have plenty of things to do for people of all ages (shuffleboard courts, public computers with internet, 3 swimming pools, a newly-renovated jacuzzi, and plenty of parties for everyone to enjoy. One of my favorite things about this resort is that they do not allow spring breakers and college kids. I think that greatly improves the quality of stay at this resort. The homemade doughnuts are fantastic as well. If I had to suggest the ultime room to strive to get, I would have to say a beachside room in the Garden Area. Perry's is wonderful and completely worth the journey and money.
Ritz Prices but Ritz They Aren't
I used to love Perry's and it makes me sad to write this. Yes it's an old 50's/60's place but it had a welcoming feeling and the staff was always accomodating. Lately however getting a room at a fair price is almost impossible. Their coupon/walk-in rate is $79.00 if they have them which is very rare, while other motels with nicer rooms are charging $49.00, 59, and 69 with coupon. Their rate at the end of April was quoted to me as $145.00. I got a rate of $149.00 for Adam's Mark for the same dates. They need a reality check.
Oviously they are making money with those prices but are not putting money into modernizing anything and it really does need it. I understand not wanting to lose that 50's "Where the Boys Are" feel of the place but old and tiddy is charming, old and dilapidated is just plain tacky.
How could this ever get a good review?
How could this place get good reviews? We went on the recommendations on this site and rented a room at Perry's for a couple of nights. When we got there it was almost like a nightmare. The rooms have the old slatted doors with wooden strips put in place of the old glass ones, mold was growing around the inside of the doors, shower curtains, etc.
It smelled like the old summer camps we used to stay in when I was young(NASTY). I would have been right at home with big rollers in my hair and a cigarette hanging out my mouth. Let us not forget the bad upkeep though. I'm not a snob, but the huge hairball in the tub drain almost made me toss my cookies. Speaking of food, the doughnuts were the best thing there, if you like grease. We made it all of one night and called to reserve a room at the Hampton Inn, it was the same price and had a microwave and fridge too. The continental breakfast there was phenomenal, as was the the staff and cleanliness level. The only way this dump rates as high as it does would have to be if the Perry hotel staff were to write their own reviews that go in here. If it's not the hotel staff, it has to be someone with extremely low standards of living. In short, this place sucks!!!!!
Relaxing, Good Time
I had a great time, lounging at the resort. There was plenty to do or see. Last year was my first time, and I'm on my way back for a second.
Great family place.
Can't wait to go back
We stayed in Perry's North Tower for a week and had a marvelous time. Perry's is old, but their maintenance crews are top notch and on the job all the time. The grounds are perfectly manicured and a wonderful place to set up for a day of beach, sun, pools and shuffleboard. While the hotel is a good two miles from the boardwalk area, there's plenty of action on the beach with a variety of rentals and a Beach Patrol office just off the hotel grounds. The atmosphere is low key and family oriented, and things quiet down by 11PM. Their security staff ensures a good night's sleep. If you're staying for a week, make sure you ask about their 7th night free special; if you don't ask, they won't offer you the deal!
Spring break 2003
Took my family, including 3 teenagers to Perrys for 7 nights. Went there on a recommendation of a friend. At first I was disappointed with the rooms. I think they could use some updating. I came to be fond of the resort however. It is located right on the beach, our rooms had great ocean front views, and the pools were very nice. The two outdoor pools were a little chilly however. The indoor pool tends to get crowded with children, but this is a family resort. The hot tub is nice but again tends to be taken over by the younger set. The staff is pleasant and overall friendly. On check out, I did not get that warm fuzzy now you all come back now, but it was efficient. It has all the amenities you can want, and is close to some really nice places to eat.
I feel like I'm going home to a wonderful place.
My husband and I try to visit Perry's once a year. We always find lots to do there and everyone's so nice! I love playing shuffleboard and sitting on the lawn sipping a cool drink. The beach is great but if we want to swim we perfer the nice pools. Oh, and the donuts are great!! I always forget about my diet while there. Ha ha. I love everything about the resort and people. Looking forward to being there real soon. Sincerely, The B's
Perry's is great!
I am 27 and have been staying at Perry's since I was six months old. Staying at Perry's has become like a family summer tradition. This summer I will be taking my daughter. They have the best oceanfront grounds in Daytona beach with manicured lawns, two pools, and plenty of lounge chairs and covered tables. There is plenty of room for kids to run around and play. The morning doughnuts are wonderful!
Perfect for the family
We spent 4 days at Disney and two days at Perry's. I wish we had spent 4 days at Perry's instead. The room was clean. The Kid Zone was perfect for our 7 and 9 year olds and the grounds were beautiful. The rooms are huge! You won't do wrong at Perry's.
Best Homemade Donuts!
The Hotel was marvelous and the whole idea of not going is unspeakable. The indoor heated pool is surrounded by trees and a fish pond with exoctic fish. You can have the garden room or oceanfront. The kids loved it !!!! The have kids activities and the best homemade donuts in the world.

... have found everything reliable - until now. Our two day finalé on Daytona Beach just went horribly wrong. The giant beach front complex that boasted balcony views was nothing like the picture they stole off the internet and posted on their webpage. It took us a while to find the room - but not to worry - a random lady was there to help us and show us to our quarters. Jonathan declined their help as she looked suspicious and we tried walking to the beach, except the ...

So far our weather has been wonderful, with just a few scattered rain showers here and there. We ended our day in northern Florida and will hit the Carolina's tomorrow. It appears the rain is now over, so we'll see how the roads and parks faired tomorrow. T rip Totals National Parks: 13 Miles Driven: 6200 States Entered: ...
... way back to our hotel. We had dinner and drinks and The Smoking Tuna and listen to some great live music. They have a web cam always on the stage, so if you want a little taste of Key West, Google Smoking Tuna and enjoy a little of Key West. Our day ended on the beach next the hotel, sitting on chairs with our feet in the sand, looking at the stars. A short time in Key West, but we will be back.

... see a smaller crocodile cursing in a small watery ditch near the side of the road. The Everglades is huge, and you can only see a very small portion of it via road ways, but what we did see was wild and untouched by humans. The end of the road was a visitor center and marina. I think there were about 10 people and some very deserted campgrounds. It was very quiet and ...

Cheryl saw a sign that said 1 1/8 mile, presumably the distance left to walk to get to the beach. Really!?! We finally reached the end of the boardwalk and found ourselves on the beach alright, but it didn’t look like the right beach. Cars were parked on the sand and were driving up and down the beach. I don’t think this is right.
We saw a lifeguard tower so Cheryl walked ahead to ask if ...
