I have to wonder if some of the recent reviews are written in error about a different Scottish Inn. My room was modest, wouldn't appeal to everyone but was clean, had a BIG flat panel TV with large number of channels, microwave and fridge which I used both days/nights I stayed there. Floors were very clean. Checked bottoms of my feet after walking around barefoot, clean. Water pressure great, so showers were refreshing.
It's not the HILTON. And I'm rating it based on other hotels in its price range, not in comparison to Daytona HILTON where I've also stayed. I was here to participate in 24 Hr of Rolex fun run and to watch parts of the race on three days. I wanted to spend money on things other than hotel.
This one has beautifully kept small garden areas in front. Parking spaces are wide which I liked. Pool in back looks clean and well maintained but too cold to swim while I was there. Air conditioner was very new, with many temperature options, muffled street sounds ... I was on second floor, in back, pool side. Fridge and micro seemed new too. Doors were very clean on all units viewed from courtyard. Locks were new looking on my door and made me feel secure. I was concerned since someone reviewed as having a shady clientele and being in questionable area ... not what I found it to be at all. Mine was not the only Lexus in the parking lot ... mostly new, upscale cars.
Now for the complainers. It's definitely a small hotel from 40s or 50s. Room, like many older beach motels has a little odor on first entering ... quickly dispelled after turning on ac and running it for awhile. Water from both faucets ran brown when first turned on, and sink faucet had an air bubble pop first time I turned it on. But then water was fine. I always bring bottled water to drink but this was fine for everything else. Nice ceramic tile on bathroom floor ... a rust spot around one pipe at floor did not bother me at all. Walls are a little thin, I did hear noise but tv and ac muffled. The 3 pillows on my king sized bed were rock hard, but I always bring my favorite big soft pillow from home. Mattress was firm but fine.
I slept like the dead every night, better than at home. I was able to cook my dinners with food from a superb Publix just up the street. First night sunset was magnificent from the little open balcony at center of hotel. Beach is just across the street and great for a sunset stroll my first night and for early morning walk my last day.
I remember staying at these mom & pop hotels when I was a child and teen, great to see this one so well kept. A real value at $140 for 2 nights during a big Speedway event. I'd expect it to be cheaper at other times.
