I liked the cleanliness of the place, the ease of walking to the beach, and I liked the modernization of the rooms. They didn't leave towels, the wifi didn't work half of the time, and they claim to have breakfast. What breakfast?
Nick at the front desk was wonderful. He was very professional, friendly, informative and helpful. The Lotus is very lucky to have such a nice young man working for them.
The room furnishings were unique and beautiful. The room was exceptionally clean. The mattress was great. The location and view from the third floor were great. The television was first class. There are no elevators, so the upstairs rooms are definitely not for the average seniors. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. No smoking anywhere on the property.
This was our first time staying here and we were impressed. Super clean and very updated. It was a lot more than we were expecting.
Newly renovated and updated Only one sink for bathroom/ kitchen. A/C unit serviced only bed next to it and not bed the other side of wall separating the two beds.. No elevator to third floor. International receptionist caused language barriers to understanding concerns and wishes. Phone in room out of order. Shower did not drain properly.
Location on the beach was excellent. The fire pit was a nice feature. Staff consistently appeared distressed to have to be of assistance when asked for simple requests e.g. the room key stopped working. The room was small & the mattress was uncomfortable with no box spring.
First night got a poor, smokey room. asked for better, and got a very nice (Daytona area old motels are not perfect), clean room with oceanfront porch, 2 beds and hideabed, full kitchen, on a nice part of the beach, with a decent pool - not heated. I checked several other similar priced rooms on the strip, and this was our choice for $4 more than another possibility. We were off season, great rate, beach to ourselves pretty much. Close enough to Daytona stuff, but not the traffic and noise so much. Like most Daytona area hotels, there are dogs of a room, and decent ones. Suggest you look at the room first, or call and express your concern if booking online. Our first night in a "nonsmoking" room was one of the smokiest I have been in. Next night after looking first, got a great room. Nice manager - understanding and friendly.
Nice beachfront locatiin, but not the newest hotel in ormond beach. Don't fall for the "breakfast included" line, this hotel serves the bare minimum of what you can call breakfast. Store muffins, yogurt, apples and orange juice/coffee. Most likely you will end up buying breakfast elaewhere.
Pool/Spa area was incredible. Super friendly staff, quick and easy check in. Hotel & Room were extremely clean. Bed very comfortable. Bathroom in room looked brand new and was amazing. That we had to leave.
Silence & price I don't know.
Best place to stay.
Excellent beach view and clean beach Elevator is not clean and it would be good if they provide free breakfast. TV is very small.
Great Location Handicapped parking was limited.
Location. Right on the beach. Great kitchen with all the necessities. No. Great hotel.
View Awkward to placement
Oceanfront great view. Little older outside rundown
The location, the price, and the room amenities. The cleanliness of the floors right outside the rooms, and the fact that the restaurant did not offer dinner.
I especially liked the friendliness of the staff and hotel location. no
Location Rooms are small and dated.
The ocean view was perfect. The room had a bad funky smell.
The hotel is amazing and at a perfect view right on the Beach. It was an overall terrible experience, I had 2 nights and it was pricy but I was willing to pay some extra money to enjoy my vacation, the first night the room next to me had a party with a music that was so loud and when I complained, they changed my room and I had to pack my stuff and walk to the other tower for another room at 1:30 am, there was no security and rooms were packed with at least 5 or 6 teenagers and they were so noisy and again no security or someone who can ask them to lower the noise at least at night time, 2nd night had a false fire alarm and had to evacuate the whole hotel and that took about 3 hours to resolve, got back to my room at 1 am, that might be a bad luck so that won't be the case for everyone but once again the hotel had no kind of security or manager that take care of the guests and provide a quiet, relaxing time for their guests vacation.
The location on the Daytona oceanfront can't be beat. We have stayed here every spring break for the past 5 years. I must say, it has gone downhill. Everything is just looking shabby. Our room smelled moldy. The staff were incredibly rude on several occasions. we paid a premium price for Motel 6 service. We'll be looking for different accommodations next year.
Loved the location to the beach and the staff was awesome The window in our room was not sealed all the way, we had a view of literally only the roof, and the pool seemed small for a hotwl of that size. It was always packed.
the rooms were spacious and nice. The check in lady was very helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay great. I would definitely recommend staying here nothing
Proximity to everything and friendly staff. Went down for the bike rally and was charged excessivly for parking. I was charged to park my truck, my trailer and even charged to park my bike at the hotel for a grand total of $204.00 for 4 days.
The view and the facilities were worth it. Paying for parking, which was across the street... Very inconvenient.
Staff was very friendly Hôtel need some repairs
I liked that everything was close to hotel. There was garbage in stairwells and so many homeless people hanging around.
ocean view was nice the room was small no refrigerator, no microwave, room was dusty and we had to enter from north tower when we stayed at the south tower. we had to have our vehicle parked across the street instead of at the hotel I understand there was storm damage from the hurricane but they could of told us the pool and spa were closed before we booked if we had known this in advance we would of stayed elsewhere. VERY DISPLEASED
The hotel was nice, clean and the staff were all very helpful. The restaurants offered good food (especially Hyde Park) and the pool area was fun to hang out in. The beach access was excellent and we enjoyed the ease of leaving at night to go on walks down the beach front. We didn't stay in Daytona much as we travelled to St. Augustine and Coca Beach but the hotel is a good half way point for both places. The food and beverages are really expensive and if you just add them to your room expense instead of paying cash the cost will add up quickly! The rooms are clean but very basic and had a little wear and tear. No refrigerator in our room nor a trash can in the bathroom which is just strange not to have. The windows and walls are very thin so you hear all the noise from the Amusement park which is right next to the hotel if you stay on the south side of the hotel. Valet is always nice but for $22/night again can add up quickly but they were very fast in getting my car!
Staff was friendly and helpful to an extent, the hidden fees were your surprise when checking out. All the add on fees are terrible!
Good location in terms of the beach In dire need of renovation. Awful rooms and staff are slow and inefficent at check-in
Bathrooms extremely small
The resort is directly on the water and is in the heart of Daytona Beach. We were able to walk to most of the local attractions and restaurants. Parts of the hotel were well decorated and maintained, especially the conference center wing and the lobby. Some of the food options at the bar side grill were very good and reasonably priced. My wife and I stayed at this resort for our wedding anniversary. We were very disappointed. Despite being let to believe by hotel staff that there would be some special anniversary accommodations, absolutely none were received. The hotel was very loud with spring breakers; we were woken up multiple times each night by the partying. Our entire floor reeked of marijuana and there were empty beer cans on the hall floors. The elevators did not seem to be functioning properly while we were there, for the wait times were unbelievably long. The breakfast buffet is nothing more than a cheap continental breakfast. We left the hotel every day for breakfast and dinner.
To much noise
Was a little displeased with not having a comforter on the bed.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was completely upgraded and clean. The amenities were very nice. Heated pool, it was December, salon, restaurant and outside tiki area. The outside of the hotel is not adequately being maintained. We had a street view and our window was so dirty we could barely see out of it and there was bird feces all over the ledge that had not been cleaned in some time. But still an excellent place to stay.
This was a great resort next to the boardwalk. You are in waking distance to the pier and food places. Once you park your car, no need to use it again until you leave! We will be back! It was just my fiancé and I, so the bar with all of the "buckets" were great! Clean, friendly staff!
The hotel is very nice and right on the beach. Swimming pool is heated but outside. I don't know about the rest of the hotel what room 104 was fantastic. it has a patio and access to the beach from your room.
The View was breathtaking I was quoted a price of $93 I was charged 200 I was charged a resort fee of $20 I did not know about not only that they listed the spa and sauna hot tub as Hotel amenities in fact they were not they were an additional charge if you use the spa how can you list them as Hotel amenities we wouldn't never go back
The staff was amazing! Went put of their way to say hello everytime we saw someone, very attentive. We stayed an extra unplanned night because we were so impressed with their staff How expensive their drinks were. We spent more on drinks then we did on lunches and dinners
Huge issues with elevators. Only 3 for the hotel and 1 was broken much of our stay. Unable to use elevators at all during check out due to back up. Had to load gear for 3 babies by using 3 floors worth of stairs. Beautiful hotel but elevator problems are a deal-breaker.
Nothing Where do I start with this place- The first room I was checked into was smelt so bad - The smell was like a pest control company just left before I got there and the carpet was still wet from being clean and it smelt of mold and must and bug spray . The bedding was stained and ripped . To make matters worse there was a drunk kid in the hallway sitting at the end near the room blasting his music . We asked for a different room and where given a different room the smell in the second room was a little better and also another drunk kid in the hallway on her phone sitting in the hallway . My partner and I decided at this point to find something to eat in the area and everything was closed . We decided to walk back to the hotel and see maybe if the bar or something was open in the hotel . We walked out side the hotel near the pool and that was a mess with beer cans and drunk people everywhere . At this point I called Kayak to complain about this and was able to get a refund when it finally hit us .. My partner had stayed at this very hotel on his spring break 31 years ago and the hotel had not changed in 31 years . This place need to do some major work and the staff is rude and need to be retrained . The staff lies to the customers about everything and the holding of funds on ur credit card . We where able to get all the money from Kayak but the funds from the hotel are still not refunded to the card and have called several times about this and get the run around this place is HORRIBLE and need to be put on HOTEL NIGHTMARES . we decided to head out daytona and head north and found a great hotel in Palm Coast .
The accommodations were very nice, the separate bedroom with 2nd. tv was convenient. Kitchen was well stocked with lots of dishes, etc. The deck directly around the pool was too small, also the pool was too small for 2 buildings. There wasn't enough washers & dryers, I ended up taking my dirty clothes on my cruise so I could wash them on the ship.
We were not there that long so we really couldn't say. The breakfast was so-so.

Great staff very clean no disappointment No it was very typical of motel on interstate
Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. The room couldn't have been cleaner or more comfortable.
good pillows. free wifi. the staff needs serious customer service training. No one seemed concerned with repeat business.
I can't pin-point just one thing I liked about our stay. Everything was great. We really liked their breakfasts. We stayed there last year, and will most likely stay there again next year. no
We didn't spend much time at the room .However, the beds were extremely comfortable and had plenty of pillows. I missed having a refridgerator or microwave! The rooms, lobby, breakfast area, and outside, were very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a great time!!
the ocean view the parking situation was horrible
It was a great location, all the workers there were very friendly and helpful, right on the beach. It was an excellent value and a very good choice for spring breakers! It was a little old but it was better than what I expected for the price!
This hotel sucks staff sucks rooms suck and my door broke and when i requested it fixed they called the cops g
Rooms were clean, staff was nice First off your check in/check out times are VERY SHADY!! I pay my hard earned money and cant check in till 4pm then if its one night I have to leave by 10 am? thats robbery! The Kiddie pool was filthy, absoluey no shade/shelter at kiddie pool which was VERY inconvient, little ones need a shade area.The lawn was horrible! The grass was dead and FULL of sandspurs, my two year old daughter fell right into a patch of sandspurs buy the steps! Every balcony has a wall of slime and a HUGE slimy puddle of water in the corner, which really irritated me, my daughter ALSO slipped in that disgusting mess! The place has plaster smeared to mend the holes in the outside roof everywhere, that was not very apealing especially to those of us that pay extra for balcony rooms. The floors in the rooms have no rugs, this is DANGEROUS, my two year old daughter ALSO slipped on the tile in the bathroom and the room. This is not a family place to stay, nothing for little ones but a nasty kiddie pool. Oh and the hot tub was a joke! I paid for two rooms, $145 each. I had a toddler, an infant and 4 teenagers ranging 15-18, I was not very pleased and will not stay here again. I stayed here last year, with my 16 yr old and I recall the same things I mentioned here but I didnt have little ones at that time with me so I didnt take much notice to the filthy kid pool, nasty slimy balcony, dead grass, stickers, slippery floors etc..and all the other things that are NOT suitable for toddlers....I feel like I did NOT get what I paid for.
Kitchen did not have pots or pans for cooking. Room was nasty, door would not lock. Sink area in bathroom was damaged. No privacy for changing in bath area. Bathroom to small to change in. Mattress was stained charged for safe did not even give key to. Charged for parking and did not even have enough parking spaces. Never would stay again See above notes. Did not like this motel at all. It was discusting
The location is excellent that's it. The over all so called resort needs a major renovation. The towels were stained, looked filthy. No coffee maker. The continental breakfast was in room on top of lobby that was really plain and all the electrical cords were hazards. No eggs or meat only waffles made by staff, no food warmers only a microwave.
room was nice after being switched. location was good we had asked for a ocean front room when booked and we did not have one. they moved us to an ocean front room and it was dark, deary & in a in a back corner.we were told that is what Book-It paid for. Later they agreed to move us to a much better room
It's right on the beach. The price was really good for beach front. Hotel needs updated, cleaned, and some maintenance. Wife didn't like the hotel she had an uneasy feeling during our stay.
Staff was nice. Location great. Bugs everywhere!! The room was filthy!! I almost called the health department.
It was on the beach. The rooms were clean, but not nice. We stayed for the NASACR race and of course it was triple the price of a normal stay, I expected that. But this is just not a nice hotel. The staff were not friendly at all. The free breakfast was gross. I did not feel safe at this hotel.
Food and the beach music to loud and way to much should have time to enjoy the sound of the ocean and the wind. Way to much music and way to early
2 hour wait for room svc,...no coffee
Excellent accomodations, relaxing, excellent spa, pool area romantic getaway. Once you arrive you do not need to go anywhere else.
The beach access was very convenient and the rooms where clean and well kept.
I liked the breakfast buffet spread. I liked that it was right on the beach.
After reading reviews, I was a little disappointed in how dated the actual rooms were. Loved the property, but I was surprised that the paint in the bathrooms, the vanity and side dressing area were in the condition they were in. The room itself was comfortable and the two complimentary bottles of water were nice. Outside of the hotel room, we loved the property. The pool and cabana area were wonderful. The staff was professional and polite. We will return just for those reasons!
t he that worked there was very nice and professional no
Not a whole lot. Old run down facility that needs to be torn down. I kinda felt like it was for hookers to rent on an hourly basis. Carpet torn and damaged, kitchenette dirty, roaches included. No curtain on bathroom window, in bathtub so when showering you could be seen from street. Had a window air conditioner with no air tight seal, therefore the room was constantly hot and never cooled off. This was a hot 4th of July weekend. Had to buy a fan just to sleep.
the hotel was in poor repair both inside and out, bed tipped everytime you got in, paint and plaster falling everywhere.
Easy access from highway.
Clean and comfortable rooms. Have had better breakfasts at other Sleep Inn Hotels.
Friendly staff, attractive, clean room with all that is needed, great for travellers, not fancy but just right.
Comfortable rooms and large for the price we paid. Two double beds which means that four people could have slept in the same room. Sink was outside the room. Unusual but good configuration which offered flexibility of usage. Very friendly and helpful staff
well kept, quiet and staff friendly ! plus the three resturants right in front!! no microwave in room!
A very nice hotel. Elevators are very slow.
location is perfect oceanfront view is great staff are friendly fridge and AC unit is a bit noisy
Cleanliness, compact but efficient Nothing
Everything. I had no issues. Room was comfortable and all staff were very friendly!!
It was a clean and updated hotel The staff were all very friendly The breakfast was the best! Really comfortable rooms
Staff was the best!
Rooms were clean. TV good size and excellent cable. Parking a little distracting.
the rooms were comfortable and the beach was beautiful price
Staff was super friendly and helpful. Hotel was beautiful and clean and well kept. Breakfast buffet was delicious. The hot tub was filled up with a bunch of dudes pretty much our whole stay. Not enough towels in the pool area.
The staff is very friendly, the view is beautiful, the rooms are modern, I enjoyed my stayed. Everything was just perfect
Nothing! Everything seemed fine at check in but it all started going down hill as soon as our family found our room. The listing said the room was ocean front NOT ocean view, when standing on the balcony only about 25% of the view was ocean! Oh and while we were looking at the little bit of ocean we could see my three year old grabbed onto the railings and could fit his ENTIRE HEAD through the slots of the railings making the balcony unuseable for the whole trip!! The room itself was average which is fine but then we started to settle in and noticed piles of cords between the bed and night stand, extension cords plugged into extension cords, making it yet another hazard. So we went down to the beach, the water was a little colder than we liked so we went to the motels pool, where we found that it had no shallow end for our little one. It was getting close to nap so we headed to the lobby for some refreshments, the guy at the front desk offered to put it on our room tab, we gave him our room number and he said thanks have a good night, without even confirming we had given him the correct number. Back in our room I was ready to was the day away and the shower was probably the worse part of the whole stay... Right at my eye level there is a window in the shower covered in at least a dozen dead black bugs!!!
I liked how close we were to the beach and not that bad for the price. I wish it was a better view and that our room was the way we asked. We asked for one bed on a high floor and they gave us two beds. When we spoke to the staff they said they could "upgrade" us to a king bed on a lower floor but "it would be best if we stayed where we are for the better view." Not the best for our first trip away.
Only complaint was our fridge in the room wasn't working well, it wouldn't get cold, but other than that nice place to stay.
absolutely nothing. everything, very lousy place.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
LOVE the location. tHE ROOMWAS clean and bed is comfy. In the past visits the management always let us stay the last day as late as we wanted. I BELIEVE IT IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT NOW THOUGH. :( THE SHOWER DID NOT WORK AND THE TOILET DID NOT FLUSH.WE HAD TO TAKE SINK BATHS. NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THIS IN THE PAST.
Clean and comfortable room; friendly staff. Hotel is being renovated.
Friendly efficient check in Pleasantly surprised how nice. Delightful hostess at breakfast She went above and beyond to satisfy guests. Great offering for a quick breakfast. nope
Proximity to the highway. The smell in the lobby. No working ice machine.
location and price pillows were flat and room not very clean
It was close to the hospital I was visiting. Very dated rooms.
Room had fridge,microwave,iron,continental breakfast,free parking,clean,staff was great. Location is right next to 95 so it is easy to go anywhere from this location. I was here on business and relocation. The price was reasonable and fair. I lived in the area and have stayed here before when it was the Jameson. Paint in the shower was peeling. Small circle of mold (very visible) Mattress needs full protective encasement not just fitted sheet. Remedied, I would give my room a score of 8.
Staff Breakfast could be better.
Convenient location. Wifi worked great. The women who supervised the breakfast were extremely pleasant and helpful. Only complaint was the front desk when we checked out. He seemed inconvenienced by us. He spoke not a word to just stared until we said we wanted to check out and then just handed us our receipt and walked away.
Staff was very courteous.
Location My room wasn't clean .someone else personal stuff was still in the room I was given.
Great stay. Very clean and friendly. No rails to hold onto in shower. Amenities lacking.. like tissues
