...luck of the draw A review of Holiday Inn Resort Daytona Beach Oceanfront
I read the reviews on Inn on the Beach after my return from there two days ago and I wonder if we are talking about the same place!!! I spent 3 days there and it was wonderful. I was accomodated with an early check in (11:30 AM) and the staff was totally courteous and accomodaring the entire time. The grounds were kept clean throughout the day (which is near impossible with so many people around no less children).My suite (full kitchen) was immaculate, there was hot water, towels to accomodate 20 persons (even though it was only two of us) and although I was over the pool & facing the beach on the third floor (which I placed a special request for prior to check in) I had no problems with noise levels from the pool or bar below. The last night of our stay we did get some noisy neighbors (on the floor) which was addressed immediately. The restaurants are good for a quick snack or a lazy evening that you do not want to dress up for, but the food was good with good size portions. If I were you I would give it another try. The other families there were having a ball! Maybe next time you can request accomodations for your special needs or preferences and they will come through for you. I travel in my line of business and have stayed in the Hiltons and Ritz Carltons...on my budget the Inn on the Beach was a wonderful break from the business world! We are planning to go back in a couple of weeks!
