We arrived late and without a reservation. The staff, which I believe was the owner and his family were very accommodating and pleasant. They offered to show us a couple rooms before we decided to take one and we were pleasantly surprised. The room we selected was very clean! Despite being an older motel across the street from the oceanfront variety it was absolutely perfect. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
Good place to stay

This is the second time that we have stayed here and have not been disappointed with the service - location and room across the street from the beach and close to all needs for food and fuel for your car.
Terrible, nasty and rude

The worst hotel experience I've ever had, 0 stars would be more accurate.
1. The guy at the desk was really rude the whole time. When we checked in he made the mistake of charging me an extra night. He voided that payment, however, I did not get the money back in my account during the four days I spent in Daytona. This has never happened before, so I explained the situation to this guy in a very polite way. Instead of trying to help he adopted a very defensive and rude position. The staff are not native English speakers (note I'm not myself either) and that wouldn't have been a problem if these people had tried to be polite and nice given their limited communication skills.
2. The toilet did not work the whole time we were there.
3. We spotted two cockroaches in the bathroom the first night.
4. The rooms are really old and nasty.
All of these problems were communicated to the guy at the desk the first night we stayed there, and he just limited to say "do you want a refund? You are not going to find these prices anywhere else", and we would have taken it but every single hotel room in the Daytona Beach area below the $110 price was full.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this place, it is worth to spend $20 and try to find another hotel.

These people will raise the rates on you just willy nilly. The housekeeper is a 6ft4 240 lb bitter dunce. Bring pillows and shotgun rated earmuffs. Our stay was one of the most punushing events in our lives . Ride on by

I have to wonder if some of the recent reviews are written in error about a different Scottish Inn. My room was modest, wouldn't appeal to everyone but was clean, had a BIG flat panel TV with large number of channels, microwave and fridge which I used both days/nights I stayed there. Floors were very clean. Checked bottoms of my feet after walking around barefoot, clean. Water pressure great, so showers were refreshing.
It's not the HILTON. And I'm rating it based on other hotels in its price range, not in comparison to Daytona HILTON where I've also stayed. I was here to participate in 24 Hr of Rolex fun run and to watch parts of the race on three days. I wanted to spend money on things other than hotel.
This one has beautifully kept small garden areas in front. Parking spaces are wide which I liked. Pool in back looks clean and well maintained but too cold to swim while I was there. Air conditioner was very new, with many temperature options, muffled street sounds ... I was on second floor, in back, pool side. Fridge and micro seemed new too. Doors were very clean on all units viewed from courtyard. Locks were new looking on my door and made me feel secure. I was concerned since someone reviewed as having a shady clientele and being in questionable area ... not what I found it to be at all. Mine was not the only Lexus in the parking lot ... mostly new, upscale cars.
Now for the complainers. It's definitely a small hotel from 40s or 50s. Room, like many older beach motels has a little odor on first entering ... quickly dispelled after turning on ac and running it for awhile. Water from both faucets ran brown when first turned on, and sink faucet had an air bubble pop first time I turned it on. But then water was fine. I always bring bottled water to drink but this was fine for everything else. Nice ceramic tile on bathroom floor ... a rust spot around one pipe at floor did not bother me at all. Walls are a little thin, I did hear noise but tv and ac muffled. The 3 pillows on my king sized bed were rock hard, but I always bring my favorite big soft pillow from home. Mattress was firm but fine.
I slept like the dead every night, better than at home. I was able to cook my dinners with food from a superb Publix just up the street. First night sunset was magnificent from the little open balcony at center of hotel. Beach is just across the street and great for a sunset stroll my first night and for early morning walk my last day.
I remember staying at these mom & pop hotels when I was a child and teen, great to see this one so well kept. A real value at $140 for 2 nights during a big Speedway event. I'd expect it to be cheaper at other times.
