    I liked it here. They are in the middle of the renovations so I ignored the pealing paint and some exposed concrete on the outside of the building (they're working on it at least, right?). The rooms themselves were great with great ocean views (3rd floor has the best view). The rooms are privately owned and decorated so some are better than others but they are willing to let you look at the room before you check in it. They have a great pool set up (large pool, kitty pool, and indoor heated pool) with table tennis, shuffle board, hammocks, a tiki bar and more. It is right on the beach and you have private access right there. I would come back here again and recommend it to others.

    This place is absolutely sketchy. Over 20 windows are boarded up. Very, very old stained furnishings in the rooms. Mold and mildew covering shower, plus no hot water for two days. Water pressure was so low it took several minutes to fill a water bottle. Wifi never worked.  Pool side bar was poor and operated by different company. Luau was operated by another company was no worth $50 per person. Wouldn't stay here again.

    As a professional in the hospitality industry, I must say my stay here was below average. My staff and I decided to get away for Martin Luther King weekend, and the Hawaiian Inn offered us a 2 bedroom suite (4 queen size beds) for 8 people, which was a perfect fit for us. One of my staff members and I checked in together because room + tax was on his card, and I was going to put incidentals on my CC. Everything went smoothly, until we all walked in all together with our luggage. The front desk agent called me over from across the lobby with quite an attitude and said she needed photo ID's from every single person staying in the room, and we were all going to have to sign a rules and agreement statement saying we understand property procedures. I had absolutely no problem with this; however, the attitude was not necessary. She asked how many people were staying in the room and I told her 8. She responded, "Wow!" I then asked, "The room has 4 queen size beds, correct?" She responded yes, and I said "Okay, so 2 people per bed. The room sleeps 8 people. We told the reservation agent there would be 9 in the room and she said that was fine, but one person had to cancel so we only had 8." The front desk agent then proceeded to tell me there was going to be a $75 deposit for each person staying in the room for incidentals. I told her to authorize my CC on file for incidentals and she said, "That's $600! You're okay with that?" This was not listed on the website and the reservations agent did not make this known to us, but as a person who currently works for the front office department for a 4-Diamond resort at Universal Studios, Orlando I told her I understood policy procedures and I knew if there was nothing wrong with the room at check-out I would be refunded the $600. She then decided to call her manager to see if she could lower it for us. When she called her manager, she said "The Spring Breakers are checking in and there are 8 of them. Can we lower the $600 deposit for incidentals?" The manager allowed her to cut the amount in half to $300--as long as we knew if anything was wrong with the room they would have no problem charging my card for damages. Where do I begin with how many things that are wrong this this scenario?! I have NEVER been treated like this in my life, nor would I ever treat any of my guests with such disrespect because I would be fired immediately, regardless of my seniority at my resort. First of all- it was the weekend of Jan 18-Jan 20...Spring Break is in March. Second of all, we are a staff from UCF area that was just trying to get away for the long weekend and relax. It was about 50 degrees the entire weekend so we weren't even able to step foot on the beach! We just stayed in the room and hung out around Daytona during the day.

    Of course the weather was out of our control, but we made the best of it. The day before we checked out (January 19th) I dropped an earring underneath one of the beds in the bedroom. When I looked underneath the bed I found a pair of old whitey tighties, and I was horrified! The next morning I went to check out and finally got to meet the manager who the front desk agent called at check in. I told him when housekeeping goes to inspect the room to make sure we didn't damage anything she would find a pair of whitey tighties in the hallway. He then said, "Oh she's not looking for stuff like that. She is just making sure there is no damage to the room." When he finally realized the "Are you kidding me?" looking on my face he said, "I do apologize for that. I'm glad you left them in the hallway though so the housekeeper can see she needs to work harder and clean better next time." I do not expect any form of compensation from my less-than average experience with your staff, however, I HIGHLY recommend you all learn how to treat your guests with respect and not assume we're going to wreck the hotel, regardless of your previous experiences with people our age. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone, and I do hope you take my recommendations into serious consideration or you will continue to lose A LOT of business. This is an easy commute for myself and my coworkers, and we would definitely go back to Daytona again for a long weekend, but not to the Hawaiian Inn.

    While visiting Daytona we stayed here.  We reserved two rooms.  The first time one group had to switch rooms because the mold was so bad in their first room.  So they switched to another room (the photos are from their second room).  

    The service was ok by it seemed as if they didn't care to make the rooms look good.  In my room (not pictured) there were T.V. cables everywhere, holes in the curtin, and nastiness on the lights.

    The view was great but it looks as if they don't have enough money to fix everything that is broken.  

    In the end I would suggest going to another hotel if you have the money.  However, if you want a cheap hotel by the beach and don't care so much about haveing everything nice it would be ok.

    Well, here is the thing.

    I was going to the Orange Bowl in Miami a few days later, but I was with a friend and we were visitng his great aunts who lived in Daytona. We stayed at the Hawaiian Inn, and it was a nightmare.

    I will preface this by saying, my friends' dad and girlfriend stayed in a regular room, and they said it was "great".

    The ocean is right outside, which is really great!

    Upon checking in, we were "upgraded" to a suite, to which the concierge said "was his favorite". Boy we were in for a surprise.
    3 room suite, mind you!
    Not only was the indoor pool really creepy, but our suite was right next to it. Cool, right? Wrong! The back door to our suite did not lock! Ok, we can just lock the kitchenette/extra room door that attaches to one of the bedrooms...ooops....doesn't lock! At least the pull out bed in the extra room didn't have a mystery brown stain on it! Ok, we will be ok with the backdoor not locking! At least the TV works...WRONG!

    Last, but not least, the front door didn't lock either. All 3 of us (brother, best friend, and I) were all really creeped out the whole night. It all worked out in the end, as our friends' dad gave us each $20, even though he didn't have to!

    Nice older place for the price of $69 + tax/night in January. It has a fresh coat of paint  and I saw no mold anywhere. All rooms have a nice ocean view with a small balcony (lanai)  with chairs and a table, and ours had a kitchenette that was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes and silverware. Also good double toaster, a double burner stove and a small sink. Free parking was a real plus here in Daytona.
    The outdoor pool was cold, even though there were record temps here for the past week. So good thing there is a covered heated pool that was very refreshing. No hot tub here, I guess the heated pool counts. One thing I didn't care for was the groups of beach people who swarmed the pool area all day. This is stated as OK by the staff, because they use the Tiki Bar (which wasn't open yet, but they will & did). So, I recommend parking your car on the beach in front (large letter name on wall) and go on up and have a blast at their pool all day and buy a coke. Towels are available at the desk, but if you fail to bring them back, they charge your room $25/each towel.
    The other thing that was bad- our door was right above the restaurant exhaust fans which ran continuously all night and day. Smoking is allowed anywhere outside.
    Great food at the Tiki Bar & grill. The fries are awesome.
    Free Wi-Fi, rooms were clean, staff was always very courteous.

    I'm going to preface this review with an acknowledgment that the hotel is older and there are definitely instances where this is very apparent. But, all in all, this hotel really isn't that bad for the price.

    The hotel sits right on the ocean, so you have great beach access steps from your room. There is a very nice outdoor pool that is unheated, so during the day when the temps get up into the high 80's to mid 90's, it's perfect to jump in and cool off. There is also a smaller pool outside (which may or may not be a hot tub, I never got in it so I can't be sure). There is also a smaller heated pool that is technically outside of the hotel, but it is covered, so that's a nice option if you have a day or two of not so great weather.

    The pool area also has a Tiki Bar and Grill, which is a perfect touch for us adults who prefer to soak up the sun all day with a cold beer close by.

    There are a lot of lounge chairs and tables around the pool area, but if you're there during a busy time (I was there during a Spring Break week) they go fast. There were multiple days where there wasn't a single chair to be had, which wasn't a huge deal, but it was a little annoying. We nabbed a couple of chairs by setting our alarm for 7am and laying our towels out on some chairs before going back to bed. That seems to be the common practice if you want to get your hands on a pool chair.

    I'm assuming some of the rooms are privately owned, so I'm sure the quality of each varies on the owner. Ours really wasn't that bad. Again, it was obviously old and could have used some updating, but it wasn't disgusting and I didn't have a problem getting comfortable.

    We had a two-bed oceanfront room that was not overlooking the pool - we were on the south end of the building. There was a full refrigerator and freezer unit in the kitchen (which was awesome since we stayed for a week and bought a lot of our own groceries to avoid spending a fortune eating out every day). There was also a stovetop/oven unit, microwave, and double sink. The cupboards were stocked with plates, bowls, silverware and cups.

    The bathroom was alright, could have used some updating, but nothing horrendous. The only real complaint I have is the water in the shower - it would go from HOT to mild to ICE COLD to HOT within a two minute span. It was annoying, but nothing that ruined the stay.

    The TV was on the small side, but we were there to lay on the beach, so it didn't bother us.

    Another problem some people might run into is their Wi-Fi service. It didn't bother me since I was on vacation and I didn't NEED access to the internet, but my sister had to do some work while we were there and she had a lot of trouble getting a consistent, reliable connection. All of us had trouble connecting our devices to their Wi-Fi, but she really needed the service so it was extremely frustrating for her. If you need to have a reliable connection during your stay, I would recommend finding an alternative Wi-Fi source to avoid the stress (I discovered the IHOP down the street has free Wi-Fi that worked quite well on my phone...).

    All in all, this wasn't an awful place to stay. You get what you pay for and this obviously isn't the Hilton, so you need to understand that going in. The staff was quite friendly, the room was in okay condition, the pools and amenities were very nice, and the beach location was perfect. I would absolutely stay here again, and would more than likely recommend it to friends that were looking for a reasonable place to stay on the beach.

    Customer service was excellent! She really gave me the aloha feeling on the east coast which was surprising but very welcome!

    The room was very spacious and it had a nice kitchenette. It was a little dated but if you have stayed in daytona before that is pretty true about everything. The free wifi was a lifesaver since I had to work while I was there.

    The ocean view was spectacular! The location was pretty far down the strip but it was quiet so you can't complain.

    Overall we won't rule this out for a repeat stay.

    This hotel ruined our trip. We were put in a tiny, tiny corner room right by the pool entrance. We had a tiny window, with only two lights - one of which didn't work and the other would flash in and out. The toilet ran. The deadbolt didn't lock. The room was super hot. The first couple of nights there were Spring Breakers all around us, they were super loud all night and audibly ill in the morning. There is no soundproofing. Every time a door opens or closes, suitcase rolls by, or the housekeepers spoke you could hear it. Speaking of housekeeping, they walked in on us not once, but three times. Even after we said we were in the room and fine. One even came into the room while I was curled up in bed to sign on a paper. I'm extremely unsatisfied. I wouldnt stay here again.
    The scenery around the hotel is beautiful. It's unfortunate that we didn't have nicer weather while we were here. However, we would have utilized the spa and tiki bar at night, but they shut down prior to 10 pm every night.

    This hotel isn't the fanciest or newest. Initially it seems quite average. Then you stay awhile. The view is phenomenal! The room is clean, sufficient, not a expensive hotel. If you want that then go down the road and pay for it. But the atmosphere...WOW!!!! We have had the most relaxing time! Everyone and I mean everyone has been so kind! It is a laid back "have a great day!" Easy going, really take a break on vacation type of place! It really shows that the staff takes pride in their jobs! The grounds a very well kept and looks so nice! I am going to miss this great place when we go home to the snow! Bea at the front desk is an absolute sweetheart and Barb in the gift shop is so fun to hang out with and chat! We have felt like we are part of the Hawaiian Inn ohana!!!!!

    Thank you staff/friends/family at the Hawaiian Inn we will be back!!!!

    Don't miss the Luau!!!!

    I've stayed here on at least 6 occasions and have had good experiences.  Given it's an older property and each room is owned as a "condo" so furnishings are vastly different.  Some rooms have a full-sized fridge, some have a dorm-style fridge.  Some have 2 burner stoves, some have 4.  Some have bar height seating on the balcony, others have Adirondack chairs.  Some are studio, some are separate bedroom.  Some have very well-worn or cheap furniture.

    You can't get a place with beachfront view for $70 on the west coast anywhere.  This place has an indoor and outdoor pool, hammocks,tiki bar & grill, small mini-golf area, shuffleboards, gift shop, breakfast café.  They have a Thursday and Saturday night luau (dinner & show).

    You can't beat these services at this price.  Brian, the daytime concierge is wonderfully friendly and professional. Carlos, the maintenance guy is quick and talented.  All the balconies have been replaced and the place has been painted.  (Yes the electrical switches look aged.)  I got a room near the restaurant exhausts and had to tell myself it was 'wave sounds'.  My hairdryer didn't work. Sometimes the magnetic key doesn't keep working. I despise the balcony smokers.   But these are small potatoes for the bargain price, folks.  They have been good about changing my room if something is less than satisfactory.  One room did not have a lock on the (new) balcony slider.  They had one installed in ten minutes upon request.

    I will continue to stay here without hesitation!  and enjoy every second.  If you want standardized rooms, go to a chain and leave this gem in the rough to us budget beach lovers!

    First off I would like to point out I live in Texas and have never actually been here but the front desk gal, James the restaurant manager, and patty went above and beyond for me to help make my friends anniversary a little bit more special!

    All three of them were pleasant and I was very pleased with my experience.

    Thank you again!

    I will be checking them out next time I'm in Florida!!
