Seems on Daytona beach, hotels occupancy rates are quite higher, therefore as a business rule, they are in general, charging much more than if comparing similar hotels in not so popular spots.This hotel is not an exception.
What we liked;
1- Location, extremely good
2- Ocean view room, enhanced our experience with the sunrise
3- We came earlier than check-in time but the front desk helped me getting the room right away.
What we did not like
1- Beds, not comfortable
2- Smells in the room
3- Breakfast, it was a joke (a bad one)
4- Wi-Fi not working (excuse given by front desk, too many people)
5- locks on the door to go to the balcony were not working properly/damaged
Overall, the room and the bathroom seemed very ordinary.
Tip for visitors;
Pay few dollars extra if you can get a better room in the neighborhood but if you have to choose this hotel to do some economy it is worth paying extra for ocean view.
Assume they don't have breakfast to avoid any dissatisfaction.
Tip for Hotel management;
You need to renovate the rooms and you need to say you don't provide breakfast, Charge a little more, I know you are doing good business even now but you will do even better if you invest a little more and having higher rate of satisfied customer perhaps will give you more satisfaction too.
