Room was dirty and not well kept. The drywall in the bathroom was actively falling off the wall onto the floor. Some of the trim was coming off the wall in the entryway which stuck out off the wall. The bathroom floor was dirty and the room corners had not been cleaned in what looked like awhile. The beds and pillows were incredibly uncomfortable. The pool area was very nice and the access to the beach was nice.

Aging hotel in need of updates

This would probably be ok for a day or two but defineatly not for several weeks. It is very dated and in need of a facelift. The pans and pots are wore out and they did not have enough silverware. Room was not regularly vacuumed and cleanliness was substandard.

This was a last minute booking.

Pros: Friendly staff and very accommodating. Very clean!
Cons: The mattress was uncomfortable. Breakfast closed at 9:00am on Easter. Way too many signs with rules. Felt like middle school.
We checked in around 9:00pm. The front desk clerk was great. The lobby was clean and comfortable looking. We got into our room which was clean and very nice.

I would not recommend this hotel.

The room was not clean. We had to ask for towels and service every day. The breakfast was bagels, little Debbie cakes, Tang and warm milk. The pool was dirty almost everyday with debris floating in the corners. And the tiki bar was only open 2 days out of seven. The only upside was the proximity to the beach.

Cleanest Hotel in Daytona

Well when you try to get a hotel it's hit or miss really . But we found a great find with emerald shores . My two sons and wife said this is our favorite hotel we have stayed in . Now truth be told we have stayed in about 80 hotels over the years and this one was in a good location with a great staff and very clean place . It seamed like someone was always cleaning . The continental breakfast was huge . We are definitely going back . Thank you Enerald Shores .

Great beach front view!

Pros: The oceanfront balcony
Cons: Update furnishings
Location: Great location, across the street from a great ice cream shop!
We got to Daytona Beach Shores a day early and booked this room online because of the price. The oceanfront room was far better than the resort we had reservations at for the weekend. Onsite parking, and a view that will leave your troubles far behind!!
