Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bahamaman Perfect winter haven
Arrived a day early. Upgraded to a full kitchen suite, at the same rate as a run of the house. In house entertainment was great, ie: day time by the pool w/ bingo, and trivia. Karaoke in the H2O restaurant/bar was a hoot. Pool was heated. Hot tube to take the chill out. Fire pit (2) were a perfect late night sit around. Staff was friendly, and went about their work as if they owned the place. This was our second time at this resort, and won't be the last. ON check out, I said "see ya next year".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wisfamily Great Staff wonderful Beach Location a Must See Holiday Inn Resort!
This was our first stay at this location. We had some reservations since it was a regular Holiday Inn and we normally stay at Holiday Inn Expresses. We were worried it might be older and not updated or run down. We were pleasantly surprised to find that not to be the case!
We arrived early and were checked in quickly. Staff was friendly and informative. The Manager, Randi was wonderful and a pleasure to meet and talk to.
We were upgraded to a suite due to our Platinum membership . The room was updated, clean and had 2 queen beds and a small kitchenette. The balcony faced the ocean , overlooked the pool area , and the view was spectacular.
There was plenty of secure onsite parking at no additional cost.
Because this is a resort location and a regular Holiday Inn there was a nice restaurant , deck area and they also offered weekend activities and games run by the activity coordinator. During peak season they have daily activities, but we were there during the slow season , so that was limited to the weekends. They also offer a live band on Fri and Sat nights down near the pool area and restaurant. We ate at the restaurant and the food was good but could use more options for the dinner menu designed for families.
The pool area, hot tub and fire pits are wonderful and the entire area faces the ocean with a secure gate so that only guests at the hotel can enter the area.
This hotel is also about 2 miles from the famous Boardwalk which is just far enough away to get rid of the noise lights and traffic from the boardwalk but close enough to go up to visit it in a few minutes. Perfect location.
Another thing that impressed us was the fact they have 24 hour maintenance on site. If there is an issue or problem with anything during your stay they will fix it immediately! Housekeeping is outstanding and does an excellent job !
We found this hotel to be very clean, well run, staff were organized , friendly and very helpful and we would recommend this to others and will plan to stay there ourselves in the future!
Job well done to everyone at the Daytona Beach Ocean Front Holiday Inn Resort!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VeghS Great View; IHG Rewards Club membership recognized
I did not have any great expectations when I booked this hotel for one night on our way to Miami; yet it turned out to be one of the best stays on this trip. I was finally welcomed in one of these IHG hotels as a loyal Gold Ambassador member should be. The check-in experience was great - we were upgraded to a suite, the largest room on the property, plus received some symbolic welcome gifts and kind words. We were also offered a late (4 pm) check-out. The suite was big, with a separate sleeping area and a large living room including a kitchenette and a balcony facing the ocean, with a flat screen in both rooms. It was a bit weird first that the door opened right into the bedroom which was the inside room, and the balcony was connected to the living room. The restaurant was decent; the staff very friendly and warm. It was a bit away from the center of Daytona Beach, but overall a very nice experience. If I return to this place, I will pick this hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FarmerTA Great Stay on the Beach!
This hotel is charming and right on the ocean. The staff is friendly and professional. It's obvious that this property is well managed. It seems family friendly and safe. The building itself is a great piece of Daytona architecture and it has a classic open-air concourse. The ocean breezes literally encompass the entire building. We plan to stay here again on our next visit. Thumbs Up!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Iflytoo Great Hotel - lots of extras usually not found at hotels
Front desk staff was great & was 1 step ahead vs me having to ask for everything (ie request late check out, what time restaurant open, etc)
Really unique features:
-Fire pits by the pool area - facing the ocean
-Pool water changed colors from lighting - pretty to watch from deck & our room
-rooms very modern, clean & larger (our room was bedroom & separate living/dining & kitchen.
Areas for improvement:
- No full length mirror
- had corner room & internet was very weak had to sit on edge of bed. Barely worked in living room, which overlooks ocean, so had to work frm bdrm,
-Parking limited/miserable. Had to park across street in a store lot, worried car might be towed/broken into.
-arrived later (think 9-930,, cld been 10 on sat night) & restaurant was serving drinks, but not food...not even any bar snacks avail or something like chips to purchase & delivery options extremely limited w/50 min delivery time.
-Breakfast - 2 of us dined, they added ~18% tip to our check. That was a 1st...

Great hotel in Daytona Beach. Had everything that we needed. My favorite part of the hotel was the balcony. Beautiful sight in the evening.
