Coastal Waters Inn
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I must say in my seven years of being part of coastal waters, this is the best year! With the addition of new front staff, BBQ area, fresh paint, upgrades, and the views of the ocean from nealy every balcony, this Is the best have seen! It ay not be a 5 star hotel with granite counters and hardwood floor, but the cooperative and friendly staff make this vacation get.a.way worth the investment. The large pool area is a big plus for the kiddos too.

This motel suited our needs perfectly. We wanted to extend our stay having to move out of the condo. Great location. On the beach. Nice pool area. Fresh, clean, all non-smoking rooms. Nice ice machine centrally located. Very nice people in reception and housekeeping. Very quiet during the non spring break week.

I did not stay at the property, but my wife and her friend did. Here is the text of message I sent to the hotel manager: I would like to extend great thanks and appreciation to Derek, who went above and beyond to facilitate a great experience for a couple of guests last weekend. I had called to ask if a special welcome package could be placed in the room of my wife and her best friend. Although the Inn doesn’t provide for that, Derek called down to Publix, found a manager who could put together what I had asked, and then came in on his day off to pick up the items and see that they were placed in the room. The girls were thrilled, and I am too. I’ll share this story with whomever wants to know and will always recommend your Inn. Thanks again.

Our family is from Florida and have spent many a night in various classes of hotels, bed and breakfast, resorts. This springbreak we were looking for a quick getaway.

I booked this place online last minute and there was not alot of options because of springbreak. We tried to check in early but were told our was room was not ready - no big deal. However, we were not encouraged to hang out by the pool until we had checked in. Then we were promised a call when the room was ready. We chilled at the beach till 3 and received no call. Frustrating. If you don't do early check in just say so, don't leave someone with two kids hanging. Especially after you tell them they can't hang out at the pool till the room is ready or have access to a bathroom. That's never happened to us before.

After check in...things worked out. Place is older and somewhat clean. By no means updated but not a dump. The rooms smelled like smoke so make sure you ask for non-smoking. Kitchen with pans/stuff,fridge, typical suite style room- decent space. The grounds are clean. No elevator, no lobby, no hot tub, but pool is nice and grills to. Of course on the beach, which was great. So despite a poor reception the stay was worth the money. However, if you are looking for a more modern hotel this is not it. Think old Florida hotels with fresh paint and solid basics.

kdnsb, General Manager at Coastal Waters Inn, responded to this reviewResponded 6 April 2012

We thank you for taking a few moments to write a review about your stay at Coastal Waters Inn. I apologize if the check-in process was not as smooth as it could have been. We are a relatively small complex and during "Spring Break" we are completely full of families enjoying the beach and our facilities, which, is why we can not normally accommodate guests hanging out by the pool prior to them being checked into their rooms. We want to make sure our guests that are departing, as well as, checking in are as comfortable as possible, without any extra traffic.

We are pleased to know that your time with us was enjoyable, other than your intial check-in and we hope to see you again the next time you visit New Smyrna Beach area.

Thank you again for your business and taking the time to share your experience.

Mgmt.

We can not say enough good about our recent stay at the Coastal Waters Inn. The rooms are not huge but are so clean and fresh. The walls appeared to be recently painted. The bathroom is small but has a good sized shower (we are both bigger people). The pool was always pristine and so were the grounds. Loved getting the newspaper every morning right at the door! Thank you so much for all of your employees, especially the housekeepers. Your rates are fantastic. We were a little concerned about your place when we booked ahead and you only needed one night paid for in advance. We would definitely recommend your place to anyone. Loved hearing the waves at night!

Room Tip: Remember there aren't any elevators.

Our family recently stayed at Coastal Waters, and based on some of the older reviews we were quite nervous. However, we had two newly renovated connecting rooms and we were very happy. The outside was freshly cleaned and painted, our rooms were newly updated, and a painting crew was working on other rooms while we were there. The pool was spotlessly clean. The staff is super friendly and the kitchen appliances were very clean. The location is good--right on the beach and not far from Flagler to the north and the part of the beach where there are no cars to the south. As other reviewers have noted, the property is older so the rooms are on the smaller side, but we slept comfortably and were happy to be able to have the kitchen to have breakfast food.

Room Tip: ask if you will be in an updated room.

My family and I stayed at Coastal Waters Inn for a week and it was the best value we found in the area. Under $800 for a 1 bedroom condo suite and the building is directly on the ocean. The property is older, however, the room was spotless and all of the staff we met were very friendly. We enjoyed being able to walk right down to the beach and you can even see the beach from the pool area. Looks like they were finishing up painting the exterior of the building, which looks good and fresh. We also liked the fact that our room had a kitchen, since we did eat-in a few nights during our week, which was nice. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance and many more within a 5 minute drive. Flagler avenue for shopping was less than 10 minute drive too. I will definately consider this property again in the future.

Room Tip: Request ground floor, if you don't do stairs well. There is no elevator. Building is shaped in...
