Nice view of the ocean but property needs updating and cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is in a nice location but parking can be a pain especially if you arrive later in the day. The unit itself needs some updating and a deep clean. I picked a bug off of myself in the middle of the night. The unit has a smoking smell when you first open the door but then goes away (might be unit next door?). With some updating and a good cleaning this could be a nice place. Overall I didn’t spend much time in the unit so I didn’t mind.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We attempt to keep up with maintenance we discover or are informed of and regular pest treatment is always performed due to the climate. Always keeping doors closed -including oceanfront door- is helpful also. Smoking is not allowed, so there should not be any smoke smell in the unit. Prior to your arrival, another guest had spilled something and stained our sleeper sofa. It had been cleaned but unfortunately the staining could not be removed. We had already ordered a brand new replacement and it arrived (1/30/18) and already was installed just after your departure. Parking is seldom problematic, however, during popular events while spaces are still available it will be crowded. The Rolex 24 you enjoyed during your stay is one of these events. If you noticed any other issue that could use attention please let us know as we always look to make improvements. For guests looking only for top tier rooms in the Daytona area there are some brand new choices with rates that reflect that cost. Our goal is to provide a nice clean place with a great location at a reasonable cost. Glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and the Rolex race.

Big pool and pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed the view and the pool during my stay. The pool was large and not crowded at all. I spent very little time in the room, due to enjoying the beach. However, for the time that I did spend in the room, it was comfortable and I had room to move around. I feel the outside furniture could be updated and made more comfortable. The kitchen area was a bit small, however, I don;t do much cooking on vacation. Overall, I would highly recommend the room for anyone who is looking for a good place to sleep at night and enjoy relaxing views. The worst thing I can say is that the elevators are extremely hot.

The beds and love seat needs to be updated. Table was in good shape. Found a few roaches. Maid needs to really do a good clean up job.

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear that you felt that the room was less than a great value. The furniture is not new but it is solid wood which holds up well in a humid environment and is in good overall condition. Our warm climate is much different than colder climates for pest control. Therefore, we are on a scheduled treatment and if you found some dead bugs that verifies that the treatment is working and keeping the room bug free if any find their way inside. I know that you also felt some animosity for not being able to enter the room immediately upon your arrival. I am sorry for any confusion as we did provide you with your entry code more than two weeks prior to your arrival. I was available to be contacted despite traveling internationally and was able to provide you again with your entry code within 30 minutes of your arrival. I am sorry that you were not pleased with the entry system which is convenient and generally works very well for our arriving guests.

It was as represented in the descripton.

Nothing fancy. Building is older but staff was excellent. One staff member even changed a flat tire on our rental car for us! Location is great. Easy to find and within walking distance of shops.

It was ok.

  • 3 of 5

It was ok. I had to buy toilet paper.

Owner's Response: We do indicate in the information that toiletries are not provided. Some guests stay for just a couple days while some stay for over a month. As you experienced, we do always have a "starter" roll so that you have some upon arrival. I hope that you enjoyed your stay otherwise. -Jon

Great view, but not cleaned with attention to detail

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here for the most part. The location was unbeatable with great dining, shopping, and watering holes in walking easy walking distance. The view from the room balcony was gorgeous, and the beach didn't seem overcrowded.

There was nothing so bad that we had to call John, but the cleaning just wasn't "hotel-grade". Dust in lots of places, hair in corners and on blankets, and a couple stains/spots that we're disconcerting (puke?). Couple those things with a toilet that plugged at the drop of a hat, and it was an average place for a good price. We didn't pay for the more expensive rooms elsewhere so can't compare it to those types of rooms, but this place still just didn't quite feel comfortable sitting on the couch or beds until after we went and bought new blankets. Again, no deal breaker, but the cleaning lady must not pay attention to detail.

John, however was super easy to get hold of, and he responded to emails within a couple hours every time. The email instructions were spot on, and it was easy to find the property and get in the room. Thanks for a relaxing week!
