You get what you get to put it nicely. Pay the extra and stay away from this property. Very GROSS and unsanitary. BUG infestation, DIRTY walls, FILTHY floors and furniture is much to be desired. If this review doesn’t disturb you then try the resort out for yourself and see what you think!

For a quick stay without having a reservation I was glad just to get a room. Unfortunately the room next to me didn’t mind if I didn’t sleep. I would definitely go back but next time request s room on the east side (oceanfront). Thanks to Steve for having a great attitude at the front desk!

Stayed here while on vacation with family of 5. Desired beachfront on budget-friendly price and got exactly as desired! Stayed on first floor for first night and room was complete with semi-private oceanfront balcony, lawn furniture sitting for 4, and charcoal cooking grates. Moved to 4th floor king room with pullout couch on second day, again with semi-private balcony and enjoyed watching lifeguards perform daily training. Patricia at front desk and ALL other staff were extremely helpfulI in anything needed. Washer/dryers in working order. Minor updating needed. Door required washcloth layed down in doorway to prevent draft and stove needed balancing before cooking. New mattresses being moved in the day of our departure. Continental breakfast was sufficient for family. Overall a great stay!

I will admit upon pulling up to the property I was questioning my reservation there as it looked like it could use a good “going over”. However my 5 night stay there was amazing! The staff was incredible, very quiet from 10pm on and I felt safe there with my son. Yes it could use some fixing cosmetically but the room was clean, beds were comfortable, the view was worth a million bucks and housekeeping went above and beyond. The location couldn’t be beat with several restaurants nearby and close to the freeway. I’m very glad to have stayed there and will stay there again the next time we’re in Daytona!
