Ormond Beach Performing Arts Center
River Bend Golf Club
The property is nicely kept up by the owners who take great pride in it. The pool deck and patio are kept very clean, nice and inviting. The beach access and view is just wonderful, especially if you get a room with a view. Having balconies, microwaves and fridges in the rooms were great for making our stay more homey and comfortable. Everything was clean and inviting. The breakfast is just some gas station food and hot brown water, don't book for the free food. Also, only one car per person and get ready to fight for a parking spot. You can park across the street if it's full but it looks shady. You should get a parking pass for one vehicle, and the lot fills up at night. While we were there seemed to be lots of bugs outside. Not sure if it was an infestation, or just the season we visited.
the hotel was in poor repair both inside and out, bed tipped everytime you got in, paint and plaster falling everywhere.
I liked the bathroom shower and the closeness of the beach. Watching the sunrise with an unobscured view was nice. There was no window in our room, and the outlets next to the bed did not work. Also, the bathroom door did not lock, and our outside door would not shut unless slammed shut (which I'm sure our neighbors appreciated ). It felt like they took a janitors closet and made an extra room to make money. There was limited parking, and the continental breakfast was a joke. Thank goodness there is a dunkin donuts across the street. We only needed a place to sleep and wash up as we were traveling by motorcycle so for the money it worked for us. For a family, group, or romantic couple...this is NOT the place. Only use this place for a 'stop on the way to your NEXT location'.
Was alright beachside view is not all that considering the location. Woke up to construction from their facility too early by 6'30 am
Worst Hotel Ever!!
The staff was absolutely wonderful - I got in way later than expected and still had no trouble accessing my room even though the office was technically closed when I arrived. I also thought the location was pretty phenomenal. It was near enough to Daytona Beach that I could easily drive back and forth between the hotel and the racetrack during the day if I needed to, but it wasn't so close that I had to fight the traffic, extra people, or general chaos. And it was right on the beach which always makes me happy. The room also had a mini fridge, microwave and coffee machine. I am a HUGE fan of that. The rooms were very clean, but a little run down. It wasn't bad and I didn't really mind, but I know that some people can be picky about things like that. Parking can be a little tricky because the lot is small, but there was an option for overflow parking across the street that was perfectly acceptable if you didn't mind a tiny bit of extra walking.
The location is great and right on the water. What has been updated (bathrooms, some floor and exterior) is very nice. It is clean - we accidently opened the a/c filters trying to turn it down and they were clean. Moved the nightstands looking for outlets and it was clean. The rooms are large. Not child friendly in its current remodel. Some banisters are shaky and a toddler could easily climb from our 2nd floor hallway onto the roof. The banister near the pool is exetremly loose. The tile in the rooms is slick when wet (shower/pool/ocean). If you're kid is older or you constantly are attentive it's fine but I wouldn't want to keep an eye on two toddlers here. There was drywall, hammers, etc. with construction workers even on the weekend. There were only outlets in the bathroom and kitchen, none by the bed. The a/c was on the wall furthest from the bed with a table blocking most of the air. We let it cool down 5+ hours and called down to ask if they had a fan - they do not. You stand up and literally feel the 10+ degree difference near the ceiling. We think either the ceiling/rooftop isn't insulated or they really need a larger a/c or ceiling fan. The nonsmoking room had residual smoke odor and heavy air freshener scent. We don't have asthma or allergies so we managed. Kids and dogs were abundant and loud, we were on a corner with only 1 connecting room but we were awoken at midnight with toddlers screaming in the hall. Not the owner's fault but annoying. There is not sufficient parking, not even close. We had to park next door (another guest told us that's what the office told them, we weren't even told) or have 1 of us get out and signal for the other when it was safe to back out. We were in our compact sedan and barely made it work. Housekeeping never attempted to come by, there was no doorhanger but there was a prominent housekeep envelope in the room for tips.
Rooms were very clean I have no complaints
For one night it was tolerable Few peculiar things that make feel a bit unsafe as a female traveler alone.. first was issued a metal door key not a.plastic card. The room door.opened out not in and with the dead bolt not working the chain didnt feel that secure with opening out. Not having the office staffed 24x7 was.inconvenient
Location and newer renovation Price good ...
The main objective for my stay was to photograph the Daytona Beach Pier at sunrise. The inn is just a short walk to the pier which is easily visible from the pool area. Hotel fees...
Nice...somewhat clean...they have their old furniture sitting right up front of hotel, kinda ugly. I had no shower curtain. The ac was made when the parted the red sea Not really nuch i f was plain nane
