Nice hotel, room was great with a fantastic view of the beach. Hotel was clean and well staffed. Exceptional service by customer service rep Rolando who checked us in. Greeted us in the most pleasant professional manner. He answered all our questions in a very detail manner, helped us with directions, told us about the many amenities that the hotel has to offer. And to top it off, Rolando went out of his way and gave us his parking space to us when we checked in late Friday night around 1:00 a.m. in the morning. What a great asset Rolando is to your hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny and ocean-view is the way to go

The Holiday Inn Resort is on South Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach. The area is somewhat run-down, with a few boarded-up stores across the street from the various hotels and condos that face the ocean (driving south, one immediately is in Daytona Beach Shores, a bit more upscale community). We booked for three nights using Air Miles, assuming we would have an oceanfront room, as the hotel is advertised as “Ocean Front”. We were assigned a room that was more “ocean view”, one of the three on each floor that overlook a large vacant lot to the south, the ocean to the southeast, and the busy Atlantic Avenue to the southwest. We inquired about a change, but were told it would be $20.00 a night to move to true ocean front, as we had booked through a third party. As we had already unpacked, and as we didn’t plan to spend a lot of time in the room anyway, we decided to stay where we were.

Our room was a basic hotel room on the fourth floor. My wife and I were traveling with our son and his three-year-old (after spending a week in Disney World), so the two comfortable double beds were adequate. The bathroom was small, with a shower rather than a tub (not a big deal), and a small vanity (the sink was the type that one couldn’t plug, so wasting water was unavoidable). The room was clean with ample storage, a coffee-maker, small fridge, and modern flat-screen TV. The AC unit was under the window, and was very noisy and difficult to adjust to an adequate temperature. Housekeeping was efficient and non-intrusive. With the balcony door closed, there was no noticeable street noise, which was nice.

The restaurant (H20) served excellent, well-priced breakfasts, with a choice of eating inside or on the patio overlooking the pool and beach. Kids’ meals are free, which was a bonus. Service was good with friendly staff. We ate there one evening as well, choosing drinks and bar food rather than the dinner menu. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful; checking in and out was effortless.

The pool is large with a shallow end leading to a ten-foot deep end. The water was extremely clean and refreshing. Although the hotel is fairly large, the pool was never too crowded. The hot tub is somewhat small, but the water was sufficiently hot. Two gas-operated fire pits were also on the large patio.

Access to the beach was off the pool area; re-entry to the hotel is with one’s key card, which is a good idea. The beach is wonderful—probably the best we’ve ever visited. There was never any debris of any sort washed up on the beach in the morning, and although cars, trucks, food trucks, and beach equipment rental vehicles were allowed on the beach, there was no danger to anyone, nor any trash left behind at the end of the day.

Parking was somewhat of a hit-and-miss. There is a parking structure with very narrow parking spaces, but also roomier surface parking south of the hotel entrance, some spots on the beach-side of the hotel (some first floor guests might have a vehicle at their doors—sort of motel-like), and overflow parking across the street by a closed-down gift shop. Exiting and entering Atlantic Avenue was never an issue.

The Holiday Inn Resort is not a new hotel by any means, but was certainly clean, comfortable and good value for our money. It is a couple of miles from the pier and boardwalk, and central for drives to the many attractions in the area. We would definitely recommend it as a good place for families to spend their time at Daytona Beach.

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 27, 28, and 29 are ocean view, not ocean front. Rooms on the first floor may overlo...

Nice hotel. Exceptional service by Jamie J. Hempel for activities at the pool area. Real nice girl with great personality and is real good with kids activities.

Gym should be larger with weights and it have been nice if they had a suna or steam room.

Rooms were clean and nice view of the beach.

Room Tip: Like the balcony and beach view. It was priced competitively and would consider this property again...

Newly renovated rooms. Very Clean! Front desk staff is outstanding; Randi and D.J. took great care of my family’s needs. The oceanfront has a fantastic rental company to accommodate all your beach and water front requirements. Good food in the restaurant. Great Stay! We’ll be back next year.

This hotel is by far the best around. Large pool, clean rooms and extra friendly staff all around. Ms. Lona (front desk) was very helpful in all of our needs. We have been several times thru the years to this hotel and will continue to stay there.

Stayed here with my wife and daughter for 1 week in July, we were starting a 3 week Florida holiday, as usual you are a little apprehensive if you haven't been at the hotel before, we arrived at 1am after a very long drive from Miami, we were greeted by a very friendly guy on reception.

We were given the keys to a beautiful suite overlooking the ocean, what more could we have asked for, a beautiful, conformable and spacious room, the pool was great with a really nice food/bar area, it has direct access on to the most fantastic beaches you can imagine.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for quality service, spacious rooms, great facilities and the most perfect views over the ocean, we will definitely be back.
