“»Stranded on eve of Daytona 500 !!!”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

What can i say about this establishement i 'll try to be nice.

I booked a room at this hotel a long time before the 2013 Daytona 500.
i boked the room on expedia in August 2012.

Upon arriving a this location after a long day at universal studio's on Febuary 23 rd 2013 i was first told i was at the wrong place... i then took out my reservation confirmation and was then told by the owner that the reservation was cancelled three days before by Expedia.

I called Expedia from the restaurant and they denied cancelling the room but they ended up putting me in a $350 a night King jacuzzi room in the Ormond Beach LaQuinta free of charge.
They refunded my $112 that i paid for this location + $25 for gas .

So thank's for nothing Astor bridge marina Hotel i ended up really appreciating this ordeal and i got to see a fan boat in action ... Dont count on me to return however i had my lesson.

Amazing views an location rooms very good nicely decorated an recently decorated , didnt meet lady who runs it but men all very helpful even though we showed up late in the evening with no reservation - you can hire a boat daily which is very worth doing will hopefully return for another night before going home - there are two bars closeby serving food the one next door is back in the sixties for decor an food served in the downstairs restaurant but the upstairs bar is good an food better- across the bridge is another bar where food an service ok

My first time here, and totally enjoyed- the staff was awsome, anything you need. This place has a true Florida history feel, the units are SUPER clean with full kitchens, not updated at all- why change and update so nice the way it is. Apparently the river was used for steamboat sugar cane and orange transport back in the 40's. We stayed in the motel units with picnic tables and grills right out front and found it very comfy with seperate bedroom and a living room + TV. Wireless is available for your FB needs. BTW on the weekends the restaurant is rocking- dance on the river, and try the frog legs. A true place to relax and great boat access! Don't expect luxury, just a good safe time! A+A++

Room Tip: The rooms closer to the office are quieter

The food was very good - we ended up eating lunch while out fishing and then went back for dinner. The porterhouse steak that a friend ordered at dinner looked absolutely delicious and he verified that. We had shrimp/scallops but the breading was too heavy. Another couple ordered the broiled platter and said it was extremely good. The oysters that another couple got were hard and inedible. At lunch the club sandwich was excellent. They have homemade fries which are quite good. Didn't have any experience with the marina folks. If you go to Castaways for dinner and want to enjoy a quiet, enjoyable meal - go early!! The drunks start coming in about 9-9:30 and the noise level is unbearable with all of the yelling and cursing.

We stayed here for bike week 2012, room was clean bed was comfortable. In fact my boyfriend wants to take it home! Only two things keep me from giving this spot a better score the bathroom needs serious updating it was clean but needs some sprucing up! The master bedroom has no window like a cave in there! Over all the value was good a nice ride into the bike week festivities! Elaine and Mike have been wonderful hosts. The on site restaurant Castaways is reasonably priced and the food is good seafood platter is enough for two!!! We would stay again

I loved coming to the marina when the Easters' were in charge. The people in charge now are rude, inconsiderate and just unbearable. As long as they are the caretakers my family nor I will return. In my personal opinion I wouldnt return until different people are there. The way these people treat others is going to drive this business under!
