We booked his hotel for a good deal on a third party site. I wasn't expecting much because of the price I got, however, when I arrived I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were a good size we were comfortable without feeling on top of one another. The bathroom was tiny, but it worked for what we needed it to! We stayed in a partial ocean view, originally I was sad that we weren't in an ocean front room, we don't get to travel much and I really wanted to "splurge" a bit, but we had a GREAT view of the beach from our room, the last morning, the kids even got to watch dolphins playing in the surf, chasing fish. They were out there for a good 30 minutes or so, and it kept the kids entertained while dad and I packed up our stuff. My BIGGEST gripe? The partial view balconies are oddly shaped and super tiny, we couldn't stand out as a family to see or look at anything, we had to go out one or two at a time and take turns. I was also a little disappointed in the lack of microwave. We made it work, and as it turns out it isn't as much of a necessity as I originally thought it to be.
Overall, our room was clean, the staff was friendly and we had a great time. Due to Covid-19 there is no daily housekeeping, so if that's something you're looking for, you won't get there here, but I don't blame them, its MUCH safer that way. They are still doing breakfast, but they are pre packaged plates from staff that you take to either the pool deck or back up to your room to eat, but that's not a huge problem either since There is an IHOP across the street on one side, and a Dunkin Donuts across the street on the other side! We are thinking about coming back to Ormond in August for a few days and we already said, if we do, this will be the place we stay, if they have vacancies!
Oh and I feel like I need to touch on this: Not only do they have surface parking, but they also offer a small underground parking lot as well. Given how bipolar FL weather can be this was so amazing! It helped keep the heat down in our car AND one night we went to dinner and it was storming like crazy, but we just took the elevator straight from the 4th floor to the parking garage and didn't get caught in the downpour! Definitely something to consider when you stay, ESPECIALLY in the summer when afternoon Thunderstorms are almost a daily occurrence! less
