Right to the point, when my guests for the race along with myself ran for our lives from the dump down the street, The Residence was our saviour.
Clean Rooms, Good Breakfast, Great Service.
Front desk provided a good restaurant to go to, etc.
Expensive yes during Daytona week, but the same as the dump down the street.
This will be my new home when in the Daytona area.

I was booked here after my flight out of Daytona was canceled. The hotel is currently being renovated, I was in one of the new rooms. Very nice, clean, and spacious. You get a full kitchen (full fridge, dishwasher, microwave, and 2 burner stove), sitting area with couch and table, and king size bed.
One minor annoyance was that the fridge didn't have an ice maker, and I couldn't find one on the floor. No restaurant on site, there is a small store with drinks/prepackaged snacks but it's overpriced.
Breakfast is free but wasn't very good. You get what you pay for I guess.
Pool area is nice and kept clean. There is a small gym with a couple treadmills, elliptical, and some dumbbells, about average for a hotel gym.
There is a free shuttle to the airport, it arrived pretty quickly and the driver was pleasant.

As a season ticket holder for Daytona Sprint Cup races, I'm always looking for a way to use hotel rewards points to book rooms within walking distance of the track. While it always seems easier to do this with the Hilton family properties off Richard Petty Blvd, I was finally able to grab a room here and it exceeded my expectations. Obviously, this Residence Inn was recently renovated and the result is an extremely clean and comfortable hotel. Credit this hotel staff for also being able to maintain a calm lobby and exterior during race weekends, which is not the case at the Hilton Garden Inn and Hampton Inn across the street. In particular, one front desk employee (wish I could remember her name) had a very calm, friendly attitude and actually assisted me with a special request before I could even finish asking for it. One note for other NASCAR fans who are fortunate to stay at this property: Please don't waste your time asking for the shuttle bus to the track. Seriously, it is only about a 100 yard walk from the front door of the hotel to the drop off point across from the Midway. It only makes sense to take the Marriott shuttle if you are staying at the Courtyard further down Richard Petty Blvd. Also, very impressed with the safety and security of the parking lot for this hotel as much of it is secluded and not obvious to other fans walking to and from the speedway.

I booked this hotel on a last minute business trip to the area. I was traveling solo. The parking lot at this location was full in the front of the hotel by the entrance. I made the mistake of parking in the back of the hotel by the pool before I received my key. All the doors of this hotel except the very front door require a room key in order to operate. Although I do recommend parking in the rear of the hotel if you're going to be leaving before the end of your stay. This smaller hotel has a nice look overall. Good landscaping borders the sidewalk on your approach from the rear. You'll pass by a court that can be used for either bad mitten, many tennis, or a half-court basketball game. It is adjacent to a pool which is also relatively small but laid out well and a hot tub.
I was given room 418. The room is spacious and it has nice decor but I would not recommend staying in this particular room, more on that later. The room comes equipped with a mini kitchen directly to the right as you enter the room. It is separated from the doorway by a half wall with the nice counterspace there for placing your keys or anything else as you come in the door. There is a full-sized refrigerator with an icemaker, a coffee pot, a toaster, microwave oven and a dishwasher. There is a small sink and almost as many cabinets as I have in my kitchen at home. Straight ahead from the doorway, you'll find a desk with a lamp the house phone and an ethernet Jack. On the other side of the desk is a mini sectional that doubles as a pullout bed. There are two large windows in this room that are almost floor-to-ceiling. In between those windows there is a chest of drawers with an LG HDTV on top. Valuable to note, the HDMI inputs on this TV can be utilized, allowing you to connect a device for larger screen watching. This room comes equipped with a king size bed directly next to that surrounded by two bedside tables with lamps, on either side. I was only provided for pillows and these particular ones were as comfortable as what I typically expect in a Marriott property. The bed however was quite comfortable with no noticeable indentations. Another positive, every table lamp had two outlets in the base which I find to be a necessity in today's traveling technology times.
Directly to the right of the bed is the bathroom area. It first features a closet/sink area with a large mirror attached to the wall that doesn't go all the way up to the ceiling. This allows air to better circulate into that area and helps with creating a feeling of a more spacious room. The area is led by wall sconces that were nicely bright. The shower/tub/toilet area was relatively typical except for the nice wooden shelf system for storing towels which I found to be quite nice and situated perfectly. The showerhead was a "Speakman Any Stream 2005". It was free of scaling and allowed sufficient water pressure. For the first time in a long time I actually had to reduce the water temperature which was a nice change of pace. Usually I crank the hot water all the way to the end in order to get it at sufficient temperature.
Directly on the other side of the mirrored wall is a small dining table with two chairs. Against the wall is a 6 inch countertop along with an outlet and a phone jack. I found that outlet to be a convenient place to charge my electronics.
Missing for me was any kind of ice bucket and the icemaker in the refrigerator although it functioned, made ice relatively slowly. On my darkness scale, this room ranks at about a six out of a possible 10 with 10 being pitch black. There is a large gap under the door along with the red LED light from the TV, the green LED light from the dishwasher, and bleeding around the curtains. I was able to mitigate most of the light by using all of my towels, but I really hate creating extra work for housekeeping.
I enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning, and I must say it was one of the best I've had in a long time. What made it different then most of the locations in this class of a hotel is the fact that they changed out the fresh fruit to adjust feature pineapples and bananas instead of going with fruit out of season. They also added an additional "mixture" that featured hash brown potatoes, onions and peppers, and sausage. I threw my scrambled eggs on top of that added a little bit of cheese and surprise! Sour cream and devoured the whole bowl in a matter of seconds. This location also one ups the average by adding fountain soft drinks to their breakfast area. Perfect for when you need some extra caffeine in the morning and don't drink coffee like myself. As a side note, I found the wireless Internet in the lobby to be what I would typically expect.
Lastly all cover why you shouldn't stay in this particular room. The Wireless Internet. It's horrible and needs to be updated. Until they get that fixed, if you need an internet connection, avoid that room.

This really is as good as it gets. The rooms have everything one needs, include full size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and a stove range.
I love the compact layout of the rooms. . .I honestly could live here! It's clean and really great to stay here.
Service is really great now and people are really friendly and helpful.
