Nice Stay

Pros: 4 Pools Tiki Bar Great Service
Cons: The carpet and curtains in room
Location: Close to beach, restaurants, and many shops
I was assigned a room I didn't like and the front desk girl went out of her way to find me a room that I could stay in for the 3 days. Everyone at Tiki Bar very friendly and helpful with stuff to do and where to go. Food good. Service Good.

Not what we expected

Pros: The food in the restaurant was good.
Cons: Accommodations
Location: Across the street from a starbucks, CVS, Winn Dixie, Deli. Go to the Ocean Marina Hotel for beach access and a tiki bar
We booked our stay through travelocity with a flight and hotel deal. The price was right but the pictures and location of the hotel were not what we arrived to. The pictures made the hotel look updated and new. The outside appearance of the hotel itself was old and looked run down. We did not use the pool once because there were floating cups in it the moment we arrived. We instead crossed the highway and walked about 7 minutes along the hotels, each day, to the nearest public beach entrance. The room had a musty smell and was very outdated. The shower did not drain the first time we used it. Maintenance did come within 10 minutes to fix it but we wore flip flops in the shower because the water did not hit all areas of the tub causing sand and dirt to stick to the bottom floor. When we asked if there was a room to shower in after we checked out (due to our 8pm flight) we were told we could change in the lobby bathroom but no shower accommodations would be provided.

The hotel front office staff aren’t the friendliest. The rooms were clean but the furnishings and condition of the room is outdated. Beware that hotel picture on Travelocity are extremely staged.

Unsatisfied

I was every desapoitted with the staff in the front desk. At the time that i arrive to the hotel. The ladie that took care of me was in a rush to charge me for thing like parking. When I mention that I did my reservations on line and it states fee parking. She said to me that most be an old site. After all I should her my conformation on my phone she said i will take care of it. When I finish with the transaction with my credit card. Never told me have a good day or whatever I had to ask are we done. She said yes yes. She was in a rush to rid of me to take care of the next person behind me. So we left to or room. On the 5th of March my husband went down stairs from the hotel and notice a ticket on our car. We went to ask why the hotel why was there a ticket on our car. The guy on the front desk said that we were not staying there, so we couldn't park in the hotel. We said that we check in on the1st. he said you did not have the hotel sticker. My husband said we never got one. You see if the lady in front desk would have done her job and taking care of us the first day the right way and not be in a rush to take care of the next person. We would have never been in that situation. So u ask well it was not that great!!

Just okay...

Rooms seem to have dividers rather than walls. All rooms have adjoining doors. When the adjoining door was opened, there is exposed concrete between the rooms. No variety of pillows, all were the same & hard. Ran out of hot water. Sliding glass door needs insulation and a way to securely lock it. Close to high traffic area. Staff was friendly and pricing was reasonable.

No as appearing as pictures

Pros: Nothing. Small ..not clean. Old.
Cons: Everything..
Got to our hotel a few hours ahead of schedule. Asked for early check-in and was told that if we wanted early check in it was $20.00 fee. No beach access in close walking distance. Probably an older hotel from 1950.. Updated some .. Very narrow walkways when trying to use luggage cart.. Hotel towels were horrible !! Small and thin... Room was some what clean but not up to hotel standards! Housekeeping knocking on doors 2 hours before check out time!! Not acceptablel... I must stay my comments are a little hard. as I am a GM for a hotel in Daytona Florida.. As for the price I feel it on the high side... Pool was clean but small .. Family checking in with an children were very disappointed no beach access.

Great hotel and location

The beds were comfortable and room clean and updated. The kitchenette was a huge bonus,There are actually 4 separate buildings and they each have there own heated pools. It was chilly during our stay but we swam everyday it was so warm. From this hotel you can walk to water taxis, the beach many restaurants, bars, shops and there is a Winn Dixie right across the street. Ocean manor hotel has a very cool bamboo tiki bar and you can enjoy the beach there as well. We also rented bikes at Hugh Taylor state park- lots of fun!

The room was great for a last minute booking. Spacious room a balcony and ocean view. The restaurant looked like a 4 stars open until midnight but we ate before. This was a good price, would stay there again.

Location was good

Slow and hot elevator, hardly no channels on tv apparently due to the recent storm, pool was small, room was small and didn't quite look like the pictures. Rooms could use a slight make over. Didn't appreciate having to leave a $200 deposit when I had already paid for my room. That limited my spending money

Great overall & super convenient.

Amazing experience, close to beaches, convenient stores, shopping centers, & major attractions, non-drivers cab fares are very affordable. Hotel staff are very professional, helpful, courtious, and accommodating. The outside does not give it the inside justice, lobby is kinda sexy chic & rooms are large. Maria & Lene at the front desk are rock stars. Definitely returning to this hotel.
