Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AthensDon nice hotel on the beach
We enjoyed our visit to Daytona Beach Shores. The Holiday Inn Express is nicely located on the beach. Well appointed and very well kept up, I would recommend the hotel with one caveat. We arrived a couple of hours before check in (well past check out time) hoping to be able to check in but there were no rooms ready. Not a surprise as this is a busy time there. We were put on a list and cell phone number taken to notify us when our room would be ready. An offer to use the pool was made but we had other plans (a visit to Starbucks, we had missed our caffeine fix that morning). A couple of nice touches. There were other people waiting for a room so we were not alone. We did not get the call until around check in time, so it appears the hotel's policy is not to check anyone in early. When we go back to visit, we would time our arrival with the check in time, no biggie. Just do not expect early check in during busy times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1234XYZ Dirty, Shabby, Poor Service - NOT RECOMMENDED
Far below expectations. Shabby rooms - and hotel. Pool area unmaintained. When I stayed, there was a pair of dirty, men's underwear - in the same place - for four days. Never any pool towels (except the same dirty ones that were never picked up). Breakfast was far below expectations. Really a nasty hotel. With so many choices, there is no reason to stay at this hotel. Yeeeech!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bengee1031 Air conditioner, checking in, bed
As a valued Holiday Inn Express customer I was very disappointed with my experience. First I waited hours before my room was ready. The hotel is VERY dated and in dire need of a face lift. The air conditioner in the room was very loud and the mattress extremely uncomfortable.

This was our fourth year straight taking a vacation to Daytona Beach, FL and staying at this hotel. The location is great! And the staff at this location is awesome! The best hotel for not only the best price, but also the best quality!

Nice quiet location. Our corner suite was clean and balcony has great views of the beach looking east, and both north and south. Had a beautiful view of the sunrise each morning. Exceptional kudos to Maggie and Judith at the front desk. They made sure all our requests were granted. Thanks also to the gal cleaning our room as it was taken care of 1st thing each morning and to the maintenance man for promptly taking care of problem with our A/C. The staff at this hotel go out of their way to accommodate the guests.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by koobj Drive up - First Impression
Driving up to register there are two large dumpsters sitting in the drive through area. Very tacky looking for first impression.
They remained there for our entire stay.
Move them out of sight or enclose them behind a wall.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blue94 Dirty, Rusted Hotel with Horrible Customer Service
The Hotel was dirty and had multiple locations within the room and around the hotel with rusted out areas. The carpets were filthy and bathrooms dirty. When issues were brought up to management, no one cared to offer up a possible solution or to even approach us to address the matter. Definitely would not recommend!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky619 Wonderful front desk staff. Judith and Maggie were very friendly and accommodating.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. One of the problems was our king size bed creaked and the pillows were very hard and uncomfortable. My wife had said before we arrived how much she enjoys the Holiday Inn beds and pillows for a good night sleep unfortunately this stay was not the best experience. Hopefully it will be better the next time we arrive for a stay because we do love the Holiday Inn brands.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scott12345 Poor Customer Service
Breakfast was support to start at 6:30 and was no ready until about
6:50 . We were leaving after one night of stay to return home so we got up early to start our long drive home and had to wait for breakfast to be set up. We arrived early for our check in and told room was not ready. I was told their were 3 people ahead of us waiting on rooms to be cleaned and it took about 2 1/2 hours before our room was ready. The lady at the front desk was not very friendly. On our trip we stayed at 3 other Holiday Inn Express hotels and this was by far the worst for customer service that we experienced. I was not recognized as a IHG Rewards Club Member
At this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian's girl Absolutely Perfect!
This was my first time staying here, and I have to say that this is probably the BEST hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was so nice, and very accommodating. We wanted a room on an upper floor overlooking the ocean. The front desk manager did some arranging and we ended up on the top floor. The view was spectacular! The free breakfast was hot and filling with some good choices. The pool was clean, and not too hot. The hotel had it's own beach access. The rooms were beautiful, and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel is close to the boardwalk and the lighthouse. There are plenty of shops and restaurants close by. It's the perfect location for the ultimate beach vacation!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Familyvacation2 Disappointing Visit
We checked in and went to our room where we found a white substance down the bed skirt. The front desk moved us immediately to a new room. Although the next room had long black hairs all over the bathroom counter, the bathroom floor, the shower and even on the towels. We received new towels but then noticed the AC unit was leaking so the majority of the carpet in our room was soaking wet extremely gross to walk around on. We notified the front desk about this issue. They sent someone up to look at the problem instead of moving us again they decided to just come work in the room while we still occupied it. Had to ask them to leave because we wanted to rest. I was told at the end of our 5 night stay the we were not moved from this room because we only had 2 nights left of our visit. Extremely disappointed with our visit. Did not think Holiday Inn had poor service this location proved me wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Misscpa Great hotel right on beach!
We stayed here for one night on our way to Orlando. The room was nice and all rooms have a balcony overlooking the beach. The hotel is right on the beach, not a long walk at all. The beach was not crowded on the Saturday before 4th of July.
If you are looking for a quiet beautiful beach this is the place to go. If you are looking for things to do, note that this is not on the boardwalk so you will have to drive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by blueeyes218 Great Ocean View and Access To Beach
Stayed Friday and Saturday night for part of family vacation at beach. The view from the room was amazing. The pool is clean and not crowded. Beautifully lit at night with changing colors. Pillows and Sheets were soft, especially after spending days at the beach in the rough sand. Walk out back of hotel right onto beach. Complimentary breakfast with lots of variety and healthy options in addition to the traditional favorites like biscuits and gravy. Plenty of seating room too. Very nice stay with lots of great memories. All rooms have ocean view. Will visit again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cat from Minnesota Great views, good room for price
Absolutely loved the view of the beach in the back and river in the front! Maid service was excellent. Room could have used more supplies in the kitchenette such as cups, etc. Given the humidity in Florida, you would think the motel would invest in better exhaust fans in its bathrooms. Given that my kids have asthma, I specifically asked when booking if the property was completely smoke-free. Motel assured me that it was. However, guests smoking on their balconies around us spoiled a few nights of ocean-gazing for us. Guests and staff also smoked in front and on exterior hallways. Elevator service was slow because there is no service elevator, meaning guests share elevators with staff hauling supplies up and down. Overall, a good value for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lisa255 Met expectations, no real problems
Great location, good value, rooms updated- bathroom had some minor wear issues (black in grout near tub, etc) room had some minor wear issues but nothing that would make me not go back. Mini fridge and microwave - fine for a shorter stay - would probably want larger room for longer stay. Pool good - would liked to have had sliding glass doors to balcony so could enjoy view, I did not know there would be just a window to view and solid door to outside. Staff was nice - no real complaints.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hog421 Hotel is dated and very dirty
We stayed July 25 thru July 28 and found dirty bed sheets in the first room. The manager moved us to another room it wasn't much better. Maggie was the manager and said since I paid for this in advance there wasn't anything she could do about a refund she did attemp to move me to another location but they was full.
A/C doesn't work well either.
The last night we stayed the hotel ran out of wash clothes.
For a two bed with four people they only give you three towels and wash clothes.
Way over priced for this hotel
Stay away from this hotel period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
