"We loved this place and will stay there again. It's a few miles north of the pier and boardwalk, but right in the middle of everything else. The building was clean inside and out and the rooms were newly renovated when we stayed there Spring Break '09. They had a nice sun deck, swimming pool, and fire pit. The rooms were nicely appointed and decorated like a five star resort. This is not the Ritz, but the staff made us think it was. They were so considerate we thought we were on Candid Camera. They know how to run an hotel. Special thanks to Robert, Vinny, Arleene, Patrick and Tim."

"This is our favorite local getaway. The rooms are big and comfy and the property and pool are well maintained. We had a graduation party in meeting room and it was so much fun. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs and our grads had a blast. The fire pit on the deck at night is very relaxing. We look forward to a visit soon."

"Everything about this hotel was outstanding. The rooms were clean, all the staff friendly and professional, and the view from our ocean front room was breathtaking. The convenience of a small kitchenette was a great idea and helped us maintain our dietary preferences while on this mini vacation. The underground parking is another great amenity; your car is protected from the salty air. We'll be back again, soon I hope.
p.s. make your reservations on the Castillo del Sol's website and you'll receive a better discount than what the travel sites offer."

"Great location to watch spectacular sunrises from your oceanfront balcony, the only thing between you and sun is the Atlantic Ocean. We usually stay on the 6th floor. From your balcony you can watch the spectacular sunrise, pelicans fly by the hotel or along the waves, also watch dolphins,, see turtle nests in season, watch the surfers, and all the other activity on the beach.
The oceanfront rooms are very large with a kitchenette to make meals if you desire, a safe in the room to lock up your valuables while you enjoy a day on the beach.
There are plenty restaurants and cafes in the area.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is clean and comfortable.
The hotel now provides a great hot breakfast.
The beach is quiet and great for relaxing in the sun, or going for a walk on miles and miles of sand.
We have been staying at this hotel since 2006, the last two years we have stayed for over a month. We will continue to come back to this outstanding oceanfront hotel."

"My family and I came to this hotel years ago and loved it then. We also love it now! Every time we called the front desk for more towels or toilet paper the came up and delivered them right away. Also we asked for a new remote since ours didn't work, our sliding glass door was jogged they came right away and fixed it. The staff was amazing! I loved my stay here at the Best Western. My family will be returning to this hotel for every vacation to the beach."

"update since my earlier review. 5 stars for a better than typical beach hotel. don't have to pay for large fancy lobby or inside hallways as at the hilton or hyatt, and the rooms are just as good for daytona beach or ormond beach. have been to this property 3 more times. it is still fresh, clean, value priced, friendly/helpful staff. rooms have mini kitchen, incl. small stove. beds are queen size, not dbl size, decent comp hot & cold breakfast. pool & fire pit, umbrella tbl's end of pool, undercover area for shade. this is it if looking for nice clean affordable beach hotel."
