I stayed here during Biketoberfest October 19th-22nd. I can tell you I will never be back (to Castaway's Beach that is). Upon check in (11:30pm) we were greated at the front desk by a person that had absolutly no personality. Once we got our key we made ou way to the elevators. Upon entering the elevator the door closed and...

We flew in from N.Y. went to check in no clerk. Could not get our room. We had to drive around and find another hotel. It was terrible. We had friends with us and it was embarrasing. When we walked into the desk the place stunk something awfull. Maybe it's a good thing they had no clerk I don't think...

On check in , once the correct room key was made, the door opened and the smell and disgusting room was revealed, cancelled room but manager would not return our deposit, they also overcharged on the deposit which I am still trying to dispute. This is such a bad hotel , do not even think of staying there.

We called ahead to reserve 2 rooms and were informed that there was minor construction going on. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with the sight of scaffolding surrounding most of the facility. The place appeared unlivable. We received a swipe card for one of our rooms, indicating a “newly renovated” room and regular keys for the other room, indicating...

We checked in July 13, 2006 for three nights and I must say we should have turned around as soon as we got off the elevator. The hallway carpet was very nasty and smelly. When we got to our room there was urine all over the toilet, bathroom floor and there were roaches. I did call the front desk clerk...

After reading these reviews I hesitated in making my decision however the class of the hotel made me go with it anyways. It was affordable and i am not sure if they remodeled it after seeing the horrible reviews they received but either way I stayed in a beautiful beachfront room which was very clean and romantic. I know that...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. From killing over 30 roaches every night, the maid just laughing and saying she noticed them but could do nothing, the ceiling falling down in the bathroom, the balconies and pool closed due to construction, the odor and the general rundown condition of everything. The only good thing that happened...

We were on vacation leaving Orlando, FL from our Disneyworld vacation and we decided to go to Daytona beach to relax from our disney trip and this hotel was one of the worst hotels to stay at. The rooms were tacky and the floors were dusty with sand. The bathrooms looked like they had mold in them, and the beds...

We stayed at the Castaways the week after Memorial Day and enjoyed every bit of our stay. It rained the entire time, but between Mango's (the resident restaurant/grill) and other activities we were able to make the most of our vacation. It's true that the staff is very lackadaisical about things, but this is pretty common in most beach areas,...
