Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alexis47 Welcomed with a smile
The entire staff was friendly and helpful during my stay.
When I registered the desk attendant smiled and made me feel she was happy to see me.
The housekeeper's were friendly and conscientious. My request for extra towels was made during a minor problem with the dryers. The housekeeping staff informed me of this and that I would receive my towels as soon as possible. This was the case with an apology for any inconvenience in the delay.
All in all excellent and friendly service, great beach location, clean room with larger than usual refrigerator for a hotel at a really great price.

What lovely October evening. . .the hotel was pretty and you can't beat those oceanfront balconies. The staff was nice (thank you for sending us to Aunt Catfish's!). The pillows were awful, but that's the only complaint I can think of.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beachdad a fews things to work on
Overall, this was a good stay and we are likely to stay again if we come back to this area. I travel frequently and normally choose the Holiday Inn brand. A few of things this property and its management need to work on are as follows:
1. The rinse off shower between the beach and the pool broke on Friday and when we left on Monday if was still not repaired. It was a simple fix of some pvc tubing and glue. Not sure why it took so long and when I told the front desk staff on two different occasions about it, I received a lukewarm apology and a shrug of the shoulders.
2. The beach up near the property had trash everywhere. Cups, water bottles, broken plastic clothes hangers, food wrappers and it was not addressed once during our visit. As well, the steps leading down to the beach from the pool area had several inches of sand on them and were not cleaned off once during our stay.
3. The pool was absolutely ice cold. Not many people got in the pool while we were there. The Atlantic was actually warmer.
1. Breakfast was good each day.
2. The view from the room was nice.
3. The room attendants all talked to us when we passed them or were on the elevator with them and all seemed to like their jobs.
Possibilities: Has your location considered beach chair/umbrella rental???

Overall stay was excellent.
Breakfast choices were concistent with other locations, and as usual, exceeded what other hotel brands offer.
Only downside was Wi-Fi signal was very weak.
Personnel were also cheerful, and greeted me throughout my stay. Made me feel welcome & valued!

I was at this location for only one night, but Giovanni and all of the staff that I had contact with were very friendly. They went above and beyond to make my stay a pleasant one. I definitely plan to return to this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smadge Totally relaxing and stress -free
We arrived a little early and left a little late (with permission from the front desk). Everything was clean and in excellent condition. The bed was absolutely comfortable for both my wife and me and there wasn't any noise during our stay except the waves breaking on the beach below. A perfect view of the sunrise over the ocean, and a view of the beach for miles. We did not use the pool, but it looked to be totally clean and inviting...especially at night with the blue color. Really nice exercise room with good equipment. The breakfast area was clean and well kept, with plenty of food. However, all of us do not eat sausage gravy, biscuits, bacon, and eggs for breakfast. I missed not having skim milk and fresh fruit available as is the custom in all other HIE that we have stayed. A banana/apple would do great. The access and departure from this HIE is excellent with ample parking for everyone. We have visited the beach area in FL many times and this one was our best ever. We will definitely return to this HIE soon.

My wife and I were looking for a couple of days away on the beach after a few days of work in the area. Location was perfect! Staff was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping needs a bit more oversight. Sometimes room wasn't cleaned properly and supplies were not replenished. But when we asked, the staff graciously handled our requests. Good hotel, would stay again.

The rooms were clean and the hotel is right on the beach. I believe every room has a beach view. They did run out of some breakfast items but it was pretty busy at the hotel.

Hotel is perfectly located, feet from the water. All rooms are oceanfront, not ocean view. All rooms have a balcony from where to enjoy the miles of spectacular beaches. Room was very comfortable, though they should remodel the windows/doors and install full floor to ceiling sliding glass doors.

We stayed for a three (3) day mini vacation over our anniversary. The staff and service was a star 5 rating!! KEVIN the manager was absolutely wonderful. Rooms were clean, the view was awesome and the value for the price was just great. We had no problems and nothing bad to say. Just a great time at a great hotel. For a Holiday Inn Express it is ABOVE AVERAGE, without a doubt. We will return, no reason not to!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EdLe Good experience but a couple of problem areas
Overall we had a good stay it could have been better with a little better maid service and cleaner pool area. The maid service was not at all what we expect from this type establishment. The beds were barely touched the covers pulled up but pillows not fluffed or placed back on the beds. The room was not vacuumed the entire 10 days we were there. Bathroom was barely touched usually the fresh towels were left stacked on the counter but the trash was emptied. The breakfast area was very good and the hostess was friendly and responded to requests promptly and with a smile give her an A+. The pool deck needed some attention it had some trash laying around cigarette butts and bottle caps a good hosing down would have helped there was grass growing up along the sea wall inside the pool area. On check out I told the clerk that the maid service could have been better and the response was a slip with the trip advisor web site and told that I could write a review.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KathyG139 Cleaning issues
The room was great, however, getting it cleaned was something else. After spending the afternoon on the beach and needing to shower for dinner, the room wasn't' cleaned until 3:00. For a four day stay and not in peak vacation time, I was disappointed in the room service. We had two rooms, and my sister had two rooms and we both had to wait.

Our stay was amazing! The staff were very friendly and always available for any of our questions. The room was clean and cool and all the rooms are Ocean Front. It was a peaceful vacation for my husband and I! Oh and Breakfast was delicious.

We have been coming to this hotel since they took over from the Palm Plaza. It is SO much nicer now. The beds are very comfortable, the views are awesome, and the service is great. We will be back as soon as we can get more time off from work. Can't wait to come back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt123456789 Late Check out
I requested a late check out and was advised the option is not available on Saturday. As a Platinum member, i was disappointed in the fact that there was no flexibility to the policy as the hotel seemed to be less than full for the weekend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gator1977 Great overall accommodations!!!
We took a quick mini vacation for our daughter that is a senior in High School, we normally go to St. Augustine, but she asked if we could go a little further this trip, so I told her we only had time to go as far as Daytona Beach, instead we were about 6 miles further down at Daytona Beach Shores. I am glad we stayed here because all of the rooms are ocean front and everything where we wanted to go was easy to get to. I can assure you we will be back!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JJF1122 Excellent Stay
We would highly recommend the Holiday Inn- Daytona Beach Shores. The staff is wonderful, always willing to help and attentive. We had a problem with the shower the first morning- maintenance was sent up immediately- fixed the problem - even offered us another room to shower while it was being fixed. The bed was a little lumpy- especially if you have a bad back; the room was clean, a/c worked fine, the ocean front view with balcony, full breakfast (breakfast staff was very attentive) were wonderful. We have stayed here several times and know the area well. Yes, we would highly recommend this Holiday Inn-Daytona Beach Shore!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beach21 Could have been better
We stayed for three nights and the first night the smell was so bad we had to ask for air freshener. They promised to come shampoo the carpets the next morning but I'm unsure if this ever happened. The carpet was wet by the balcony door and we were told by staff that the individuals who stayed in this room last left the door open during a rainstorm causing the rain to wet the carpet. They admitted they let us check in to the room before they could fix it. Because we were on the same floor as lots of other friends we chose to stay, but this was quite disappointing for the money we paid. One morning we also received no new toiletries when our room was cleaned. It was a little frustrAting that we had to go to the front desk each day for something. The only up side was this was on the beach. Would stay elsewhere next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dancer38 Clean;iness
Motel was not sufficiently cared for. The pool area was not cleaned the three days we were there. There were hot dog rolls by the pool two days after the cookout.
Smoking rules were not enforced. There was a couple smoking in the pool area, and the wind was blowing their smoke over towards us on the other side of the pool.
We were very disappointed in our stay this time, as we had stayed at the hotel the last three years.
Also, we never got maid service on Saturday, August 10.
There seemed to be many day beachers there that were bringing their umbrellas, chairs, coolers, toys, etc. down the side walk from the parking lot to the beach..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tamark Good stay and good service
We enjoyed our stay and the hotel was comfortable. The staff was helpful and extremely friendly. Every time we got on or off the elevator they said "have a nice day". The bathrooms were small which was surprizing, because the room was a nice size. The pool was clean and the pool area, but there was no clean towels poolside until several complaints were made to the management. The breakfast was "good" but not great. We didn't have any fresh fruit which was important to us, but ended up with cereal and yogurt. The vending machines were empty and coke machine not working....bummer when you have young kids who want a snack. I would recommend this hotel and stay again and we had a very relaxing time.

My wife, 2 kids and I stayed at this hotel the last weekend in July. The check-in was easy but the breakfast and towel service were poor. Additionally, the two elevators did not service the floors well especially when the hotel cleaning crew was using them. The breakfast had a line at 7 am because of it limited stock of food.
