I count myself very lucky to have stumbled on this gem of a Motel during my trip to Daytona. On arrival I was greeted by the manager, who had a very impressive size with a personality to match. The rooms although a little dated were dressed with beautiful bedding and sheets and towels whiter than snow. The manager couldn't have...

My husband and I decided to stay here for one night because it was close to a friend we were visiting. Because of spring break, all of the hotels close by were booked so we chose this one. BIG mistake. The rooms look NOTHING like the pictures. I can handle an outdated room, but this was beyond that. There was...

We stayed at this motel because other motels in the area were full. We paid for 4 nights to assure a room while we were in town. The first night the police arrived to settle a dispute between a couple in one room. The next night the couple next door were so loud that we could not sleep. The walls...

I was in Ponce Inlet for a fishing trip. This was the only motel I could find with a kitchen, stove and refrigerator. It also had a living room, and a separate bedroom. The manager Rosa was great. The pool was nice, but was a little over crowded.

My girlfriends and I stayed at the famous shores for spring break. The manager Rosa was awesome. She knew were everything was, and got us in VIP to Razzels night club. Everyone was nice there, and we all felt safe. They gave me free toothpaste, toothbrush and deoderent every time they cleaned the room.
