Just returned from a week in a two bedroom fourth floor end unit and we had a great stay. The location is oceanfront, there is underground parking, across the street from a strip mall with TGIF's, Outback and a great little restaurant for breakfast, Peach Valley Cafe. Walgreens is also across the street.
Everything was there that you could possibly need: laundry facilities, stamp machines, coin changer, two computers, big screen tv in sitting area, small indoor pool, hot tub, very clean and warm outdoor pool, Tiki Bar, kiddie pool, mini golf, gas grill, patio tables for dining and more. Ample lounge chairs and plenty of clean towels daily. The staff was great. No problems whatsoever. One day our door lock didn't work and it was literally two minutes until they had service there and the lock was completely replaced.
We were traveling with a 3 and 7 year old and if you are looking for a "kid friendly" hotel that has scheduled activities to keep the little ones happy and busy, this is the place for you. We had a 2b/2bath unit with a kitchen with lots of floor space (not a galley kitchen) and a large master oceanfront bedroom with private bath. My only complaint would be the living room furniture was uncomfortable, as is the case with most, if not all, ocean front properties we have stayed as the concerns about sunscreen on upholstery, etc. but I must say that was the only complaint. Didn't spend much time in the living room anyhow. There are three tv's, one in each bedroom which was nice and one in the living room.
The most important issue with me is safety for me and my family and there was even a security guard on the premises. Everything was clean and far expected my expectations after reading some of the postings.
The only negative is they will be closing at the end of the year for a multi million dollar expansion (52 more rooms) and renovation of the deck areas which took a huge hit over several years with storm after storm and the installation of a larger pool to accommodate the increase in guests.
This location is quiet but Daytona Beach is probably just 4 miles down A1A and that area has definitely become more upscale since my list visit.
Be sure to visit Ponce Inlet Park and walk the lighthouse. Incredible view.
Final word: Don't hesitate to book. You won't be disappointed. Our family definitely will be booking at this location again.
