All of the rooms are privately owned

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

For those of you not familiar with Daytona Beach, the Daytona Inn Beach Resort, like most of the hotels in Daytona Beach, is a Condominium-Hotel, a.k.a. Condo-tel. All of the rooms are privately owned by individuals like you and me. But not all of the rooms belong to the rental program that is managed by the front desk. What this means is that you can rent some of the rooms out by dealing directly with the rooms' owner, and you can rent some of the rooms out by dealing with the front desk.

When you rent your room from the front desk, you get all of the amenities you'd expect from a hotel: reprogrammable keys, toiletries, clean sheets, maid service, housecleaning, maintenance crew, etc. It's just like your traditional hotel service.

On the other hand, if you rent your room directly from one of the owners, you don't get the amenities provided by the front desk. You get whatever the owner promised you (if anything) when you made your arrangement with the owner. Since most owners don't live onsite, there's a good chance you won't receive much in the way of personal service, compared to the dedicated onsite front desk staff that works for the rental program.

So, for example, when you read a post here from someone saying that the front desk didn't help them out, it's most likely because the person rented a room directly from an owner who doesn't belong to the rental program. Owners on the rental program pay a fee to the front desk to take care of their rooms for them and provide all of the comforts you expect from a hotel. It's not that the front desk staff is being rude or unfriendly, but rather it's not their responsibility to take care of rooms that don't belong to them. Owners who rent their rooms out themselves must also service their rooms themselves.

So, by all means, stay at the Daytona Inn Beach Resort. It's a great location at a great price. But make sure you reserve your room through their official company website, their phone reservation system, or through one of their travel agents. Don't rent from an owner directly. If you do, you are on your own.

If you think this type of arrangement is peculiar, you should know that most of the large hotel chains run like this. Most large hotel chains don't actually own the buildings that they run. They collect a management fee. An example of this is Hilton Management Services (HMS), which runs most of the Hilton-branded hotels. Hilton collects a percentage of the revenue for themselves in exchange for running someone's hotel for them and putting the Hilton brand name on it. Even the Plaza hotel in NYC and some of the Trump properties are actually condo-tels. You'd be surprised :o)

We arrived at Daytona Inn anxious to check into our rooms and exhausted from a long drive. We were greeted by rude and unprofessional staff. We waited four hours to get into our room only to find out that because it is privately owned, the hotel staff have no way of getting into it. That would have been nice to know when we checked in four hours earlier. We were told "It's not my problem". How rude!! We came in two vehicles as well without being told that you can only park one vehicle at the hotel and the other you have to pay to park daily. We left to find a place to park and could not find one. The hotel staff then wrote a parking pass. What a waste of our time. It could have been a nice stay from that point on BUT our vacation was interrupted when we found SEVEN cockroaches in our room in one night. We were told by several staff members that they were not cockroaches and were just palmetto bugs. Duh...palmetto bugs ARE cockroaches and NO ONE wants to deal with them when they're on vacation! The staff was not cooperative at all and seemed to not even care. We also spent the entire week trying to avoid people soliciting in the parking lot and on the beach, ANNOYING! Our room was nonsmoking as well but the smoke from the room next to us filled the bedroom. I could hardly sleep at night because it was suffocating. If you want a relaxing vacation where you will be treated with respect by the hotel workers.....do not go to Daytona Inn.
