Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western la Playa Resort Hotel
The room is big and old. Needs serious renovationfrom mrb62
We get to the room and my wife immediately pulled back the covers to discover stained sheets. We had them changed and advised housekeeping to throw it away if they can't get it clean. The closet doors were off track and we had them fix it. We left the room and when we came back our patio door was wide open. I closed it tight but somehow it came open. I locked the doorknob but didn't realize the deadbolt needed to turned also. Like I said, the room is spacious but truly a mess and badly in need of renovation. We're attending a family reunion here so that's why we're at this dump. I wouldn't recommend this hotel until they do a complete renovation.
One reviewer stated she didn't see the problems everyone else has. Look for the pictures after Aug 6 and you'll see for yourself.
Major Dissapointment!!!!!!from gemini007
I booked 4 rooms at the La Playa because my son got married on the beach Friday night, this was a special event for our family, one of which we did not need the added aggravation of what we had to deal with from this hotel. Some of our out of town guest were treated rudely by the housekeeping service and could not get clean towels for their room. Yes ,you can see our stay was very disappointing any I will not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.
NOt a resort!!from brew1
Bring your own towelsfrom bethied74
First, they overbooked the hotel. We had 6 people staying in our room and I booked a double suite. When I got there, they gave us a king suite, which could only sleep 4. Very frustrating. Luckily there was someone else in our group that did get a double suite that could make do with the king suite and we traded rooms. However, if I hadn't been so lucky what would I have done?
Secondly, the towel/housekeeping situation was a nightmare. We had clean towels/washcloths in our room on Monday when we checked in and every day after that was a fight to get towels. We only received washcloths one other day. When we would call to beg for towels, they would send 4 towels and 6 HAND TOWELS. The last two days of our stay, we did not see housekeeping at all and we didn't receive any towels until 6:30 in the evening on our final day (and those were brought to us personally by a manager, not housekeeping). Completely ruined our dinner plans.
Everytime we called down about towels we got a sob story about how the hotel was so booked and they couldn't keep up. DON'T OVERBOOK. At one point, we had two days of dirty towels in our rooms. GET HOUSEKEEPING TO PICK THEM UP SO THEY CAN BE WASHED. We didn't see a housekeeper the last two days.
Loved the La Playafrom punz
t stay here!from katlizzy
We booked a very expensive suite ($189 a night) - several things were broken (closet door, balcony railings on 8th floor!, curtain rods) and missing (pillows for bed, silverware ( 3 forks and 2 knives, plates in the kitchen) 2 dining room chairs). This is a suite for 4 people. There were coach roaches - we killed two big ones and I found roach dropping in the kitchen. The bathroom was just big enough to turn around in. Parking cost s an extra $5 a night.
I complained the first day to the management and was told housekeeping would come immediately.
No one ever came despite several calls and personal requests.
Daytona Beach hotels are known for being ratty but I had expected something better for the price. I made a written complaint to the hotel but so far (4 weeks) have not heard from them.
Everyone should stay herefrom CopaSis
So 3 happy girls head for the pool. Right away Melissa (entertainment pool coordinator and "stay off the line" guard) came over to us and had us playing beach chair bingo and trivia games. She is also a wealth of information on the area, from turtles hatching to Daytona's birth of speed to the rip tides. Right after meeting her we of course met Beth and Shane......the wonderful pool bartenders. Beth makes a great bucket.....yes, bucket, of Voodoo juice. (A personal favorite of mine) And Shane, he makes a great.......snowball. They land perfectly on your back to cool you off. he he (he did this with our permission) On Fri and Sat's they have a dj poolside.....Kyle. He's pretty fun and once you let him know that you are a music buff and can guess any 80's tune, he puts you to the test. (I passed)
Everyone we ran into that worked at this resort was so very helpful, friendly, and courteous. The maid left us extra towels and coffee when asked. The pool maintenece man was even fun. It was wonderful to know that each day you came to find your pool chair that your area would be free of trash, sand and debris.
We would be happy to have another girls' trip, or family trip to this resort again.
Rats Come Out at Night..from sugarhill
To say the least.. The staff was short and did not actively want to assist. Had to keep asking for things. Informed the front desk of the Rats.
So if you go, don't have snacks if you don't bring extra for the pets... I love Daytona but I will not pay $189.00 to sleep with RATS.

Top Local Tips for Daytona Beach
Ocean Deck Bar/Restaurant Do NOT eat here. The food is horrible! As we were leaving, at least 2 other tables that had left were commenting on the same thing. The valet parking is nice and the guys that run it are very nice. The bar downstairs is fun.....if you like drunk people around you in the afternoon until night. If you are looking for a "meat market" party atmosphere then go here.
Daytona is for spring break Daytona is not a family friendly area. With cars and vehicles going up and down the beach, you have to constantly watch out for your little ones. Also due to the spring break "visitors", many of the hotels are rundown and in disrepair. Most of the attractions are out of town like Cape Canaveral and St. Augustine. Not a lot to do except swim and go to the cinema. It is an hour away from Orlando which is one of its only drawing points. My daughter lives here and that is the only reason we come. The west coast of Florida is, in my opinion, much nicer.
Daytona Beach Daytona Beach is a beautiful place, I think this is a fun place for a family get-a-way.
