I've always wanted to see Daytona Beach simply because I knew automobiles are permitted to drive and park on the beach! I'm a SoCal native so this was a novelty. We stopped at this Best Western en route to Georgia. We had 2 small children in tow, and this Best Western has a kiddie pool. This hotel has a walkway leading to the beach within minutes. And there are plenty of lounge chairs situated on the lawn if the pool and beach are not your preference.
Don't expect elaborate furnishings in the hotel or your bedroom. The hotel is clean but it is dated, kinda like a throw back to the 70s. The hotel attempts to keep to a Polynesia theme with soft pastel walls, colorful carpet and door mountings. Your hotel room comes with the typical coffee machine and sugar/creamer, microwave, small fridge and kitchen area. The bathroom wasn't stocked with freebies, but just a few of the essentials, along with a hair dryer. There really isn't a large lobby area per se, but behind the lobby area is a nice sitting area and a koi pond. The front staff are very friendly and helpful. This Best Western serves a wonderful free breakfast every morning, along with a free newspaper and fresh baked cookie. You also receive free w-fi and a menu to the on site restaurant.
There are ice machines on every floor and a vending machine on the main floor. The only drawback I had is that this hotel has one elevator. There wasn't noise in the hallways at night from loud guests and the beds are pretty comfortable.
We were very happy with our stay at this Best Western. Because you are within steps to the beach, we were able to return to our room throughout the day for snacks or drinks, or swim in the pools at the end of the day. There is a bar in the pool area that came in very handy, with restrooms, and a laundry area. less
