Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robinlet Nice stay
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pavito GREAT VIEWS
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ellen67 Great Value
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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lmacklen1 We stayed 5 days in August 2013 at the Holiday in Oceanfront Hotel
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..

This was a much needed vacation before school starts again. This was our home away from home and it was everything we were looking for. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would visit it again myself.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 2620 Last minute vacation
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.

We were stopping for a day of beach time before our long 15 hour drive home from Orlando. We were very pleasantly surprised at this hotel. We loved the location, the cleanliness and the mattresses were phenominal. Slept better that night than we had in over a week. We will definitely be back to this hotel when we are in the area again. Staff was excellent as well and the beach and pool were very clean. Couldn't say enough about how pleased we were with this choice of hotels. Thanks again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sisters565266 Beach access
We have stayed in condos on the beach, yet had a great distance to walk before reaching the actual sand. This hotel put us on the beach in minimal walking distance from our room. Great access and location between two piers. Rental chairs available right in front of hotel on beach and found it to be a less populated area which made for more relaxation. GREAT SPOT!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SECSALLC Outdated design, furnishings,
This hotel is very outdated in terms of furnishings in the room, quality, etc, and on our stay, only one elevator worked most of the time, creating 10 minute wiat times to get an elevator from the 10th floor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grits Awesome beach front hotel!
We always try to stay ocean front when at the beach. Great view from balcony and ocean front pool. Pool is heated and is open for use until 11 pm. Our room was very clean, and that is a major consideration for us. Nice variety for breakfast and efficiently restocked as needed during serving hours, and you can enjoy an ocean view while eating. Staff (front desk, housekeepers, towel lady, etc) all do a very nice job professionally with a smile. We will stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by granakins OCEANFRONT VIEWS ARE AMAZING!
My husband and I liked the location of this hotel. TOur room on the 11th floor was nice, and we loved the balcony overlooking the ocean. The pool was nice too. The breakfast buffet was better that I exoected, although there were no bananas or fruit when we went down for breakfast. The only thing negative was that our air-conditioner near the bed made a rattling noise that would wake us up, but we didn't say anything to the staff about it. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Daytona.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coacher1960 Loved it!
We had never been to Daytona Beach Shores. I read the reviews on this Holiday Inn Express and decided to book it. I am so glad I did. It is right on the beach. The rooms are adequate for what we needed. They were Very Clean! The breakfast was typical Holiday Inn Express but there was plenty of it even with a large crowd. We drove around and I did not see anyplace that was more convenient and had the amenities. We were on the 10th floor and we could see dolphins! I would highly recommend this hotel for a weekend or a week. It is also very child friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RegularTraveler2 Good, but not as good as previous stays
This is the third time that I've stayed at the Daytona Beach Shores Holiday Inn Express. My previous experiences were great, but this stay was just fair. When I first stayed at this hotel, it was new, but it's starting to need regular maintenance. The staff that I dealt with were okay, but previously they were great (very friendly and helpful).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cbub78 Not too bad...
I've stayed at this same Holiday Inn at least 4 times over the past year and generally my experience is good. This past time trip, I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of the hotel and the level of service and professionalism exhibited by the staff.
Again, normally it's a nice place to stay. Sad to say this time around, I was disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vacationeers Great service and smiling staff`
The front desk let us check in early and rooms were very clean. Lock to balcony broke and it was repaired as soon as we reported it. We had four washcloths in our bathroom every day without asking. Most hotels only have 2-3 and we have to ask for more. Cleaning staff were excellent and friendly. The whole staff always had a smile and always asking if there was anything we needed or wanted. Check in and check out was very fast. Would stay with you again. We had 6 in our party and no complaints from anyone about the hotel.
