Holiday Inn Resort Daytona Beach Oceanfront
Ranked #5 of 73 Hotels in Daytona Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Great location right on the beach. Hotel has a nice pool, one end of it is even very deep (10 feet). Separate kids pool makes things nice in the adult pool. Plenty of chairs out by the pool, with sitting areas near the pool bar. One restaurant, food and drinks are so so. Parking is a joke, not a lot of spots and often times have to park on the second level which is like in the hot sun all day. The rooms are standard, nothing special going for them except for the view. Hard to sit out on the patio when your room a/c is blowing hot exhaust from it onto you. The beds are a joke, hard as a rock and the pillows are way too small. Felt like I was sleeping in a hospital bed.

Thank you for sharing your stay. I would like to address some of your comments. There is only so much room on the balcony to put an A/C in so may I suggest sliding your chair over a bit and that should of put you out of range of the AC. The rooms we have been getting the most comments about how beautiful and spacious our rooms are so I am not sure how to overcome that for you other than to say we probably can't please everyone's taste, but the majority love our rooms. As far as the beds this is the first time I heard anything bad about the beds as they are new and again most people love the beds. This hotel has received numerous awards and a top ranking on Trip Advisor so I am not sure about your comments other than to say we try, but can't please everyone's taste. As far as the pool it is the second deepest pool in Daytona Beach. Most pools are only 6 ft. Perhaps when you try another hotel to compare us to as this was probably your first visit then I am confident you will be back. Thank you for sharing.

We stayed here as a last minute visit on our way to Miami.
The front desk staff were super friendly and helpful, really nice.
Room was great, and fairly priced. Large fridge and cook top with a 7/11 across gives you the ability to make simple melas in your room. Staff were very attentive, had an issue with the safe and the maintenance man arrived with in minutes of our call.
Water pressure was average but think they just need to clean their tap filters.
Pool area nice, its busy with families and children, but not the place for a couples get away!
Overall good value for money, and had a great meal at Joe's crab shack. Well done on being so helpful and friendly.
Just one wee comment Holiday Inn, I think its time for new sheets, the sheets on our bed were badly pilled and quite thin :)

Room Tip: If you want quiet, ask for a room away from the pool

I am very happy that you took the time to share your stay. I will look into the water pressure. I will have maintenance change out the faucets as this is not normally a problem. I am glad that we fixed your safe right away. I will look into the sheets as well as we order new ones all the time and inspect the old ones which get thrown away if they do not meet our standards. Thank you again for all your comments this will help us only get better. We will look forward to welcoming you back again.

The staff is extremely friendly and they had activites for kids and adults alike. The activity girl Jamie had the perfect personality for engaging the kids to play in the games.
Hotel was clean and probably the fastest cleaning staff ever!! they were done our room before 11am. The restaurant staff was great and I just fell in love with Jose, he was so friendly and happy and must love his job... he is reason alone to get coffee in the morning and lunch in the afternoon. Depite being over the pool area, once we closed our slider we didnot hear any noises besides the other rooms sliders being slammed shut. We originally had a 3 day stay but extended it 2 extra days and it was a seamless transaction and we didnt even have to move rooms..

We had an Ocean View and aboslutely fell in love with the property. The pool stayed clean and crystal clear. The firepits at night were an added bonus! This was my first stay in Daytona and I cannot wait to come back and stay at this same hotel again. It was perfectly located to everything!

We are so glad that we are now your only choice when visiting the Daytona Beach area. I will pass along your comments about our staff. Jamie and Jose are just a small part of the staff that make a difference in your stay. Our staff gets very excited when there names get mentioned. We have a lot to offer here and I am so glad that you extended your stay. We are thrilled that we won you over and exceeded your expectations that is our goal. Thank you for sharing.

We rented a two double bed oceanfront efficiency for 2 adults, 1 toddler and a baby for one week.
We had a very pleasant stay. Room was freshly renovated and clean. Despite the noise outside from the pool and the road nearby, the patio door and the room door where dooing a very good job. It was very quiet for the afternoon nap. It was cleaned everyday by kind and firendly maids.
The beach is nice for young childrens. Waves are not too rough and sand is powdered.
Another good thing about the beach, it's not overcrowded and cars are permitted only few days per week in this area, depending on tides. Daytona Beach is only an hour and a half from Orlando so a little trip to Disney or Universal is easy to do on a cloudy day.
The only downside we can think of, is that the efficiency does not have an oven. You have to order pizza!
Two thumbs up!!

Room Tip: 2nd floor is easy access to garage for strollers.

Thank you so much for your review. I see that you had a wonderful time at our resort and we are very happy about that. We have found that most people only use a stove during there stay so we put in a two top burner. You can order room service though and get a kids pizza . Just an FYI on your next visit. We will look forward to welcoming you back.

We decided to choose a three day beach getaway while in Orlando. Daytona was close enough and while we normally choose the gulf coast we decided to stay on the Atlantic side this time. We read the reviews and honestly, this place is awesome!!! The building has clearly been renovated. We were surprised to see the rooms updated, with a mini kitchen, all updated features in the room and it was soooo clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. The beach was breathtaking!!! Each evening before or after a rain storm you can even witness cars being pulled out of the sand by the beach patrol because they managed to get stuck in the sand-brilliant!!!!!
The beach was clean and had a lifeguard present. The pool was busy during the day with families but even busier at night and looked amazing from our fourth floor balcony as it lit up with different colours!!! There was even a fire pit and updated furniture by the pool area.
Breakfast and lunch in the restaurant on the deck of the restaurant was a great deal and pretty tasty!! Kids ate free with each adult meal! The food was well prepared, and there many healthier choices on the menu should you prefer them!!
The staff were great! We encountered many friendly and helpful staff from check in, to housekeeping, to restaurant staff and all the way to check out!!!!
There are three elevators but since many tend to use the one in the middle, it can be a bit frustrating and busy waiting for awhile. Once we started walking over to the side elevator, our wait time was definitely minimized!
We did have a problem when booking the room with the reservation staff for holiday inn resorts but once I dealt with the manager at the hotel, she cleared it up and made things right!!!!
My family will definitely be back to Daytona, especially this hotel since we do travel to Orlando often to visit family!

Room Tip: It appears that most rooms are ocean view!

Yes we have been renovated and we are constantly making improvements. You really took the time to share your stay and I really appreciate that. This tells me that you really want others to know what a great time you had and this helps them make a better decision on where to stay when there travels bring them to Daytona Beach. You stayed long enough to figure out that by using the other two elevators you save more time. You are right the center one is definitely the most busiest one of them all because of location. We inform everyone at check in about the elevators , but most are so excited when they get here that they really do not remember all that we tell them at check in. I will share your comment with the staff as they love to hear that they made a difference in your stay. Thank you for sharing.

Great hotel! Beautiful balcony view of the ocean in every room. The pool was cool and opened till 11pm and right on the beach. Our room was a standard room with a small fridge,microwave, and coffee pot. We were on the top floor so the AC wasn't doing as good as a job it should. However, the maintenance man Steven was there to fix the problem immediately. He put a slide on it and it worked good although we like it colder. The staff here is very nice and got things done quickly as we needed our soap dispenser fixed, new shower curtain, and AC colder. The restaurant is right by the pool and has good food. The hotel is a couple of miles from the boardwalk. Would stay here again.

We bought a "deeply discounted vacation package" trough Resort Tours of America almost 2 years ago. We were finally able to take our trip. We "upgraded" to a room classified as "Oceanfront Efficiency." It is a mediocre hotel room with a beautiful view. There is a full-size apartment refrigerator, a stove top that didn't work, a toaster that burned everything, a 4-cup coffee pot, and a hodge pudge of dishes and utensils. 1 bowl and 1 spoon. Seriously? There was no cold water. Turn on the water to way your hands and the coolest it gets is lukewarm, and continues to get warmer. When you're sunburned and want a cool shower, go to the poolside shower because the one in the room is NOT cool!

Our "kitchenette sink" faucet was disgusting with mineral deposits, and it was loose.

The heated pool did feel nice after being in the ocean all day. The hot tub was also nice. There are also two fire puts out by the pool that provide a very nice ambiance.

The location is spectacular, right on the Atlantic. Views from the room were gorgeous. The small, private balcony was nice. The very short walk (across the pool deck, Open the gate, walk down 5 steps or so and you're on the beach. And the water is maybe 50 yards away, if that) to the ocean was very nice.

Parking is limited, and right.

Overall, if you can get this room for $40 a night through a vacation club, and its only one or two people, not a bad deal. If you pay full rack (listed online as $115), or are traveling with teenagers, it is not worth it.

We take our comments very seriously and look at them as a way to improve in any way that we can. I am a little confused however as to your response. We receive many responses every day and as you can see this is not any type of a consistent problem. We spent a lot of money and invest a lot into our employees to maintain a top 5 hotel rating. This does not happen by chance. Our rooms are beautifully decorated and if you needed more kitchen supplies we offer that through housekeeping. I have never heard a problem with the water not being cold enough and I will look into that for you. We offer an overflow parking lot across the street on sold out nights. I will have the maintenance department look at the faucet. I did look at the log book and did not see that you gave us an opportunity to solve any of your concerns with your upgraded room so I am assuming you did not want to leave that room or location. I do hope that on your next travels to the Daytona Beach area or any other hotel that you stay in while we are not perfect please allow us to make your stay right. That is our primary goal with each and every guest. Thank you for sharing.
