Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Little pricey
A nice quiet hotel, but pricey for the area. The pool could have been cleaner and the rooms were comfortable and well maintained. The workout area was useless only 4 machines and very small.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pat25 Overall Review
Excellent service in the restaurant. The staff was very accommodating. Several minor things went wrong - a/c unit rattled; refrigerator did not work; coffee pot did not work; stopper in bathroom sink wouldn't open/close and required maintenance twice; room cards were programmed incorrectly - but great response time. The thing that really bothered me was that the pool was not cleaned on a daily basis. Finally, on day 3 of our stay, we saw the pool being serviced and the sand removed. My husband was also told that if there was no parking in the hotel lot, someone would drive the car across the street for him. However, when we asked, we were told that was not the hotel policy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jlhernan1964 Bar Services at the pool not recomended
Front Dest Arrival was excellent.
Room clean and comfortable
Breakfast in the restaurant was average and service and courtesy not the best including the menu.
Pool clean and well maintain
Bar at the pool area service extremely poor, order a beer and it took for ever for the the attendant again and when I ordered a second beer and the bill another 30 minutes and neither showed up.
Finally the bill arrived and no beer, again the courtesy of the attendant was not the best nor her services.
All she knew how to lecture the guess was not to take bottles to the pool area, something that I agree for safety of all guess in the facility, but simple solution will be informing the area rules.
The beach area was ok, but no equipment in the beach area from the hotel like chair, towels or umbrellas, ashamed the place could be a little more convenient for a beach vacation.

I was very impressed with the Hotel and I loved the fact that the ocean was right there. The free breakfast for the kids is an added bonus and as a parent of three children it was really appreciated. The room was clean and very well kept. I think the best part is the location, there are alot of things to do and enternain the kids with within a 2-3 mile radius. All the staff was very helpful and you could tell by thier demeanor that they actaully enjoyed their job. The only thing that I was put off by was that the garbage cans by the pool deck were at some point over flowing with garbage, someting that is both visually unapealling and unhygenic. Overall, I really think the Holiday Inn on Daytona Beach really gives the other more "upscale" neighboring hotels a run for their money. I'm already planning my next trip back. Keep up the good work,!! :)

My wife and I visited over the labor day week end and were very pleased with our stay. Access to the beach was great, food and service in the bar and restaurant were good, and the location to other amenities was excellent. We would recommend the property for a visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flower23 Vacation experience
We have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times. We come from the mid-Atlantic states. Each time has been a pleasure. It is located in a convenient area - a location where the beach isn't crowded. A recent renovation has resulted in comfortable rooms. There is a spacious and comfortable lobby. Good Wi-Fi access in rooms. The restaurant is very good. Location of the restaurant and bar near the pool is good. The patio overlooking the ocean is excellent. The staff is quite good. We recognized a number of staff members for many years - at the front desk, in the restaurant particularly. That is always a sign of both a nice place to work (employees stay) and a management which values its long-standing employees. There was never a time where we weren't greeted by employees, doors held, employees leaving elevators so that we could enter them. Always helpful. A front desk employee named Angelo was particularly helpful and gracious. A good value for an enjoyable stay. When returning to this area, we would definitely stay at this Holiday Inn.

It was a very nice mini vacation. I the pool was great and I liked having a bar in the hotel. The resturant was nice. All the staff was very nice and friendly. We live here in Florida and have been to Daytona Beach 3 times inthe pass 5 months and would stay here again. We have stayed at 3 diiferent hotels and we feel this one is the best so far.

This was a one day trip for my family. It was a quite area, but a short drive to the boardwalk area. We asked for a roll-away bed and it was delivered to us within 15 minutes. The on-site restaurant was great. Convenient and not overly pricey, plus one of my kids were able to eat free for dinner and breakfast! I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by T1W7M Great, as usual!
Another great stay at an IHG hotel. Beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony! I could have stayed there another week! Friendly staff as always, especially the ladies at the hotel bar. My wife and I had a great time chatting with them! Only negative was a noisy a/c unit that woke me up whenever it kicked on. Small inconvenience that wouldn't for a second prevent me from coming back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by betsyboo elevator!!!
the hotel is lovely, the staff is very nice, the restaurant great.
the elevator however. one of the elevators was not working, and apparently had not been for 2 weeks. there didn't appear to be any urgency to get it repaired. the staff used the other elevator with there big carts and garbage bins. there either needs to be a service elevator, or repairs need to be done quicker. also the staff started wheeling those big carts down the halls at 6am. rolling them over ceramic tile was extremely noisy. maybe they could start a little later. other than that we loved it there and will definitely return.

My family and I had the best time at this Hotel. The rooms are very clean, nicely decorated and roomy. Bathrooms are very nice too, clean with beautiful granite counter tops. Pool area clean and fun with free live entertainment alongside a delicious meal. What we enjoyed the most was the amount of bang we got for our buck. Included in our price, my grandkids got to eat FREE and the kid sized portions are large enough for the average adult...no kidding! Free menu meals period, with a paying adult at dinner and free breakfast for everyone! If you chose the all you can eat breakfast buffet, it's only $4.95. Yummy yummy! You can't beat that price for delicious all you can eat food like bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, cereal, fresh fruit We look forward to our next trip and staying at the Holiday Inn again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barb1994 GOOD LOCATION
For the most part the two night stay was good with the following exceptions (we had two rooms)
Elevator was out of order. Long wait to come and go from rooms
Could not sit on our balcony water from air condition unit in room above us leaked causing our balcony to be full of water and water splashed down on us
Second day we were there they forgot to make up our room. We came back to room at 2 pm and had to call to have room made up.
We were then told there were no large towels ready and we had to wait for them
Food in restaurant was fair at best we had a breakfast and a dinner...HUGE mistake. Should have eaten off the property for all meals

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJKC Nice view
Stayed here at the end of july. Ocean view 6th floor. Waitress in restaurant was lovely. Took us in 10 minutes before close without complaint. Friendly desk staff. No lock on balcony door, broken. Pool is open to 10 but sun sets by 9 pm. Poor lighting. Dryers were not working. An elevator was also down. Kinda looks aged. Need some reinvestment.

We drove form Northern Kentucky and stayed one night in Daytona on our way to Orlando. This was a very nice hotel. Parking was a litlle tight, however they do have a parking lot acrossed the street. Great access to the beach. Food was good and the kids ate free. Very nice amenities. We would stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Geovonnie Never Again
Upon arriving at the hotel, my wife found blond hair in the shower. We had not been in the hotel 45 minutes. The doors separating the bed and couch were inoperable. Last but not least, the staff was beyond rude to my wife. We overslept and missed checkout time. While we were scrambling to get dressed and check out, the staff continued to knock on the door until my wife answered. We were then rushed to leave and that same staff member attempted to be nasty to my wife when we went to check out of the room. Our stay at this institution was definitely not a pleasant one and as an IHG member it bothers me to say I will never give this hotel my patronage ever again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texas517 Wonderful vacation!
This hotel was wonderful! The room was super clean (we are very particular about that) and a great view of the ocean and pool. The only thing that was minor that we had to deal with was one elevator was out of commission. No biggie though! Took the stairs down and hardly any wait time going up. The staff was excellent and super friendly! We even had a chance to watch a beautiful wedding ceremony right on the beach while sitting by the pool! We would highly recommend this place! We'll be back for sure!

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.

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.
