“Lovely location but run down”
Reviewed 26 February 2009

We stayed at the Sea Vista in February and were made very welcome at reception and we viewed the room at at first glance all looked ok. However we never looked at the bedding and discovered burn holes in the blanket when we went to bed. On having a shower we also discovered the towels were see through due to wear and the cleanliness of the bathroom/bedroom left much to be desired. The Sea Vista has everything going for it regarding location and views but does need some renovation work to bring it up to a good standard. For the price paid $89.95 it was very poor value.

I stayed at the Sea Vista during 2008 Daytona Bike Week. I would say the Condo was a resonable place if your looking for a place to save money and lay your head. There weren't any frills & thrills. The AC, Frige & showers all worked as expected. The place needs some renovations & minor cleaning would make it a GEM of a place to stay. (Wasn't dirty, but wasn't sparkling clean) Location is nice, a 1/2 block off the ocean. Parking isn't the greatest... The Facility has 3 Condos and parking can handel maybe 3 - 4 cars. The hotel portion is about a mile away & the Tiki bar would be a nice place to relax.

Over priced for the dirty rooms. The tiki bar is ok, but it all falling apart!!!!!! THIS PLACE IS A DUMP!!

Showed up at hotel to check in and parking lot was full of broken glass. checked in and got a key then realized we didn't need one to enter the room, just pull hard on the door that looked as if it had been opened with a crowbar many times. Room smelled of BO. Shower was very dirty, suggestion... bring shower shoes or water shoes. Window fell apart when trying to open for ventillation, due to hot/stinky room. You cannot control room temp from the room. Kitchenette was a corner with a mini fridge, 1980s microwave and coffee pot stacked together.

On the plus side it is a beach front hotel for $50/night on a holiday weekend when most hotels were booked, so what can you expect. The deck is nice that goes out to the beach. Hotel staff seemed friendly and we did recieve a full refund when we decided 10 minutes into the stay that we wanted to try somewhere else. Tiki bar appears to be enjoyable with a group.

We have stayed at the Sea Vista for a week two years in a row and enjoyed it both times. We stayed in the rooms with the full kitchens and a separate living room. It was two adults and a six year old boy. The Sea Vista is older but still has character. All the rooms are at ground level and end up being filled with sand by the end of the week but that’s the idea! Unfortunately It is surrounded by high rise hotels and condos and I would not be surprised if the property gets bought in the name of faceless development. We can walk to the beach right through the Hotel property. There is a Tiki bar that serves drinks and normal bar food. It has live bands on some nights. Our room was just far enough away to not hear the party at the Tiki bar but close enough I could take a quick walk to listen to the band and still see the room. The pool is small but is right on the edge of the beach. I have always enjoyed the Sea Vista as a good place to have both a good time for adults and beach fun for the kids. The price is very reasonable for being right on the beach. The maid service just keeps you restocked if you stay there for a week but you can have fresh linen and towels everyday if you ask. We buy groceries as soon as we arrive and just turn the place into an apartment for the week.

  • Liked — Your own full Kitchen and the Beach
  • Disliked — Little older room and lots of construction around the adjacent properties
  • Tips/Secrets — Make sure the beach did not get washed away, it happens
