Nicely renovated right on the ocean

My husband had a seminar in Daytona so we joined him to get a change of scenery, because we had never been to Daytona. The hotel when you drive up is clearly an older hotel, but it was totally redone inside and the decor is really trendy. Our room was small but very clean and had everything we needed. It was far from a luxury hotel but when we travel with our small children, that's not neccessary. I didn't know before making the reservation that the hotel pool was under repair, so that was disappointing, but they had sister resorts a few buidlings down we could use-obviously not as convenient. That didn't become an issue because we had bad weather while there. Once the pool is done, the pool deck area also has adirondack chairs and a firepit, nice grills and lounge chairs around it so a nice place to lounge and hang out when you have nice weather. You can not beat the view, it was fantastic. Cars can drive on the beach, and the beach(when it's not high tide) is really wide. If I went to Daytona with the purpose of lounging on the beach and pool with the kids that would be great. As far as entertainment, there is a complex across the street from the Hilton 5 miles away there isn't a ton do to for very small children. They're too young for laser tag and mini golf though. The hotel was very clean overall, some of the staff especially "Star" in their hotel lobby was extremely helpful and welcoming, I had locked my keys in my car and she jumped right in to help me out when she heard me inquiring at the front desk.
