Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Aldude Comfortable bed and good location.
Very clean room, comfortable new mattress,clean sheets and pillow cover's, did not had typical stinking smell. Balcony need little cleaning but being oceanfront it was OK. The only negative thing about that hotel was lobby. Anytime of day specially evening had a very bad smell from restaurant. But overall will stay at this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JDuncan Things just did not work.
We stayed in July, during the peak season. Knowing the hotel only had two working elevators we knew getting to the room would be difficult. We were unpleasantly surprised to find that one of the elevators were out of service. So we used the stairs to get up and down. Then we decided to look at the game room they had, nothing worked...after four separate trips to the front desk to replace our money the clerk rudely told us that the room was about to close because it was time. The time was 9:23p.m. Not quite sure why they did that but the staff was mean, and the equipment did not work. The laundry was on the top floor and I spent more time waiting on an elevator than I did doing laundry. I think we will look at a different hotel next time.

The cleaning of our room was done early every day. We had the same person for the last two years. Her name is Janette and she is very professional, always affable and pleasant.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mowerboy Price increases while everything else decreases
The rate of rooms this year have increased and when asked we were told that it was because of multiple upgrades they made to the hotel. We did not see any upgrades made to the hotel from last year. Also, while we were there one of the elevators was down the whole entire visit, which was over a week. It is understandable that repairs need to be made, however when the maids and other staff members have to use the same elevator as guests it takes a long time to get up to the top floor, especially for a handicapped person who had to use the elevator. The restaurant was not good at all. The price was too high for what you got, the food did not taste great, and the wait staff seemed very inexperienced and when there were ten people in the restaurant they were very overwhelmed and there was very slow service. The pool was very dirty and something smelled like it had died on the pool deck. The soda machine on the top floor is completely hot and when told about it the staff did nothing about it. We had two rooms this time and the staff was told that the bills went to one room and not the other and the staff completely ignored it. When we made the reservations we were told that we could check out later than most but when the time came they were going to charge us for a half day for checking out late. When we came to check in our rooms were not ready yet and we were fine with that but changing our check out times without notifying us was very poor on their part. Also, the last couple years entertainment has been horrible when we were down there. It is pretty bad that no one would sit on the patio when the musician was singing and playing his guitar and that other people were going over to the Desert Inn in order to hear their entertainment because it was much better. We have been to this hotel multiple times, however after this experience we will not be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelRN Ocean View!
I stayed here on a week long business trip. The air conditioner in the room ran constantly due to the humidity. The AC definitely needs an upgrade... It was too noisy. The view from the 3rd floor was AWESOME! I saw some spectacular sunrises! Perhaps the patio furniture could be upgraded too. I didn't like the white plastic chairs on the balcony. The service and food exceeded my expectations! Normally I don't eat in hotel restaurants, but I ate all my meals here. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. I ate dinner on the outside terrace next to the pool every night. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive! I loved the fact that the beach was just steps away from the hotel. I didn't use the pool, but a lot of the guests did and were really enjoying it.

Very clean housekeeping even washes the balcony daily along
with the room. Pool attendants took care of all our needs while
lounging around pool area. Front desk employees couldn't have
been more helpful. Fantastic service. If we needed anything
they were right there to take care of our needs. Front desk
manager Lisa was extremely helpful. This hotel is lucky to have
her. I would recommend this hotel to everyone if they are looking
for clean & comfort. Would not stay anywhere else while vacationing in Daytona. Right on the ocean. FANTASTIC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel1971 Feels like home.....
I love this place and wouldn't stay anywhere else, and the staff is very friendly with great customer service!!! Two of the front desk staff are from my home state of Oregon! Go Ducks!!
I always feel at home at Holiday Inn and it's properties.
I travel all but 1 week of each month and always stay at HIE or IHG properties. I've never really been disappointed while staying at the Daytona Beach Oceanfront Holiday Inn, I was here for 3 weeks in April and had an amazing stay and time and now I am here again for 2 weeks. I was upgraded to King Bed Suite, the view isn't as nice as just your regular King oceanview rooms, I"m overlooking the kitchen/building but I can still see the ocean and sunrise, which is truly beautiful. The toilet is crooked but that is a minor thing. Overall, very satisfied so far. The bistro/lounge menu is appropriately priced but I wish they had free breakfast like most of the other Holiday Inn Express's. I realize this is not a Holiday Inn Express, but that is sure a nice amenity. I was not recognized as a Platinum Member when I checked in nor was I given any coupons or extra's that I normally receive so that was a bit disappointing and surprising. These are just minor hiccups and does not negatively impact my stay here. It's still a great choice and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rubyvet0093 Over Priced
Check-in staff was very friendly upon arrival. While the rooms themselves are decent the beds are very hard and the room was full of nats our entire stay. Had to request clean towels upon our arrival as there were long dark hairs on many of them. The restaurant food was a bit pricey but over all was pretty good and our waiter was very pleasant. The breakfast wait staff was great but the staff filling the breakfast buffet (one gentleman in particular) was another story. He made everyone feel as though we were a bother and interrupting his day, as well as he was yelling at fellow employees in the back. It made for a very uncomfortable and rushed breakfast. The pool area was very nice and spacious. For just one or two nights this hotel would do in a pinch.

We stayed in the Jacuzzi Suite for 4 days / 3 nights. The front desk staff, as well as the housekeeping staff were all pleasant and accommodated all of my requests to a T. Our room was spotless, smelled clean, and any time we needed anything, the staff would accommodate. We used the jacuzzi twice each day, the Boardwalk was in walking distance and the view was breathtaking. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone and we fully intend to come back and request our specific room again!!

We met another couple from South Florida we have known for 30+ years in Daytona Beach for four days of sun and relaxing. This Holiday Inn was great. We walked on the beach, relaxed around the pool, took full advantage of the poolside bar and excellent staff.
We're currently planning on returning to Daytona Beach and will be staying at this Holiday Inn when we come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tenngal Great hotel! Hated to leave!
Booked this hotel last minute for a weekend getaway with my daughter. Great location! Free parking! Hotel clean and staff was so friendly. Our flight got in before noon and they let us go on and check in and enjoy the beach. Loved having fridge in room! We booked on street side ( better price) and even though I'm a light sleeper the room was quiet and comfortable. ( we were on 5th floor). Didn't eat in restaurant but did eat from the grill on the patio which was quite good and nice to listen to some music and take a break from the beach. Btw you can rent chairs on the beach but hotel doesn't supply. Since we had four days we bought our own and a couple of boogie boards at Publix and saved money.

My wife and I stayed here on June 11&12, 2013. The Hotel is located right on the beach, great views up and down the beach. Quiet room, great cafe and good food. Outdoor dining by the pool with a view of the ocean can't be beat. Price was good too and received free upgrade with Priority Club Platnium status to a King Suite with a ocean front balcony, way more than was expected. We will stay here again when in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Artman55 Great beach view
Very friendly staff. Had a great view of the ocean! Place was clean, room was great. Only drawback was that there was NO complimentary breakfast in the morning. As a Premium Priority Club member who uses Holiday Inns and affiliates exclusively, for the price, I think this needs to be 100% included at ALL there hotels. There is a restaurant in the hotel, you do have to pay for breakfast if you choose to eat here, but its pricey compared to IHOP or Perkins.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RandyJill2013 Very Clean and relaxing
We have stayed here 3 times in the last 2 years and have received nothing but the best service. When you walk in you are greated with a smile and fast check in. The rooms are very nice and CLEAN! The pool and Bar & grill are very nice. The food and beverages are great and reasonable. Each time that we have stayed, their has always been a band or an acoustic player to add to your enjoyment. It's just nice to sit by the pool, listen to music and look at the ocean. They also set up a grill outside and cook out from 12:00 to 4:00. It smells so good! We are from Virginia and always look forward to staying there, because we know that they will take good care of us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angela13 Clean and decent
We stayed for three nights in mid May of 2013. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff were nice. The rate was a little high, but it was an oceanfront room. We were traveling with an infant, and the housekeeper went out of her way to make sure we had extra supplies (like lots of garbage bags for diapers) and plenty of towels. The restaurant was very overpriced for food that was average at best, though the outdoor patio seating overlooking the ocean was great. I would stay here again, but I would avoid the restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrla1990 Birthday Weekend
I took my friend here for her birthday weekend. We had a good time. The room was nice and the view was good as well. The only thing I would have to complain about is the fact that I got a balcony thinking we would be able to smoke on it, but they did not allow it. Also, the price of the room was a little high even with a 10% off discount. The food at the restaraunt in the hotel was overpriced as well. We ordered a burger and chicken quesadillas and we spent 40 dollars. The food portions were not big either. Overall it was a good experience, but I suggest you eat somewhere other than the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ERAUGrad Great Property and awesome staff
I have stayed at this property each year for ERAU's graduation ceremony, and each time I am impressed. I am always recognized and valued as a repeat guest and as a Priority Club member. There was extremely bad weather during my visit but desk staff were very cheerful and the restaurant and bar staff understanding and helped cheer up a gloomy crowd. The property manager, cares about the property image and guests, which is why I will continue to stay here when in town and will continue to recommend it to graduating students and their families.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spankie13 Excellent front desk service
We came in late and the gentleman working at the desk was so accomodating. I am so sorry but I have forgotten his name. He helped up with the rate and getting just the room that I wanted even at the lateness of the night. He also looked up and gave us directions to the Historical Museum we were going to the next day. His attitude was wonderful - where others would have been just waiting for their shift to end, he was pleasant,helpful and had a great sense of humor
The bar server was also very accomodating. She stated that she only worked mon,tues, and wed. We fixed our drinks and got us some food even at the late hour.
The room was very comfortable; the balcony great; I would so recommend this hotel to anyone in the Daytona area.
Thanks for giving us a great relaxing time.

I highly recommend this Holiday Inn hotel. Very comfortable, the staff were always helpful, gave great dining recommendations. The towels are very soft and not your average sized general hotel towels. The ocen view was very nice and the private balcony's were enjoyable for when you don't want to be down at the pool but still enjoy the view and sunshine. Great food in the seaside bistro. My only issue was when I had my room cleaned one day while I was at work and came back and my door was left open about 4 inches. Nothing was missing which surprised me as anyone could have walked into my room. I felt a tad vulnerable and uneasy. I mentioned it to the front desk and the man apologized and gave me a free breakfast voucher but I was flying out the following morning at 5 am so it was not of use. I would still stay there again and plan to do so in July.
Overall I love this place as I spent 3 weeks here in April for work and highly recommend it to anyone. Great view, great atmosphere and very clean with an over the top friendly staff.
