"CAN YOU SPELL D-U-M-P" Ocean Sands Beach Resort Tip by redrocker1

Ocean Sands Beach Resort, Daytona Beach: 1,152 reviews and 0 photos

THis place is a total DUMP. I have stayed there 3 years in a row and it has gotten steadily worse. The managment must be idiots to let a hotel get this bad. There is junk on top of junk on top of trash in all public rooms. The outside pool area has trash, broken fixtures from 3 years ago, broken and nasty pool furniture everywhere. The pool itself is in disrepair and not cleaned on a regular basis. There are mattresses laying around by the elevator on every floor and while I was there they had a few resting against an outside wall where every car going by could enjoy.
My advice: STAY AWAY!

Unique Qualities: I especially liked the months old Sea Gull crap all over the balcony. The ragged and faded carpet. The bed when laying down made you feel like a banana because your feet where then higher than your head. The same goes for the sofa and chairs; you need assistance to get up because you have sunk so far into the old cushions. The color of the water and the smell of the indoor pool was just too scary to even try to swim.
