DAYTON BEACH SHORES, FL
If you are looking for all of the comforts of home while on vacation, look no further. The Residence Inn Oceanside delivers just that! With stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, a pool and hot tub, all just steps from one of the most famous beaches in the World, Daytona Beach!
Upon arriving we were greeted by the friendly staff and immediately we were impressed with the decor and layout of the lobby. The Residence Inn Oceanside is clean and welcoming. The lobby is spacious and bright and beautifully updated and there are plenty of seats to lounge around on to enjoy the fireplace and big screen tv. The Rio Bar & Grille is a great option for lunch and dinner and has a great view of the pool and ocean. A tasty complimentary American breakfast is served daily and it is a perfect start to your day!
One of the best things about this hotel is that it is Pet Friendly! Now that I have a travel companion named Brimley, that is a selling point! Brimley is my 1 year old dog that loves a good mini-vacay! He definitely made himself at home in this spacious suite!
When I entered the room for the first time, the size of the suite blew me away! The Residence Inn Oceanside is an all suite property and they know how to make you comfortable! We were amazed at the layout of our room, an oceanfront double queen suite.
With a large living area, pull out sofa, full kitchen, the most comfortable beds with amazing Marriott linens, the super cool corner whirlpool tub (yes, I did try this lout and it was so relaxing!) and amazingly large shower, this suite is larger than most apartments I have lived in! With the fully stocked kitchen you can grab a few groceries and make yourself something is you so desire. There’s a coffee pot, microwave and full size refrigerator. A stovetop and even a dishwasher.
And for the gamers out there, they even offer a gaming suite!!! It is fully equipped with a PC, Xbox ONE and PS43. This is a brilliant idea and I honestly can say that I was impressed with this! You can’t escape Fortnite – even on vacation!
The pool and hot tub are beautiful. The pool is quite large and is right next to the beautiful beach. The pool deck has a nice fountain and sculpture and is pleasant to sit around. The water temperature in the pool was warm and the hot tub was…well, it was hot! There are comfy deck lounge chairs to relax on and even a walk up window to the bar to partake in your favorite beverages! I could have sat here all day!
The beach, as you would expect, is amazing. Just beautiful sand and waves as far as you can see. One of the best things about this property is that you literally walk out of the hotel and right down to the beach. You don’t have to trek to get there. Just walk past the pool area and you are there! It was lovely to take a walk on the soft sand and have the waves wash up over my feet. So much fun and relaxation at the same time!
The Residence Inn is near many restaurant and shops. There is a great pizza place across the street and for the late nighters, a Waffle House across the street as well. It is about 5 miles to the Boardwalk & Pier and all the normal touristy things. Personally, I prefer being down a little – away from the crowds but still close enough to enjoy the tourist attractions if I decide to!
I would love to visit the Daytona area again and have a longer stay. The Residence Inn Oceanfront is a great choice for families, friends or anyone that just enjoys a little extra space. I can not wait to return and sit out on the beautiful beach!
