My family and I booked this hotel for Memorial Weekend at the beach. Check-in: We arrived at around 2 pm (1 hour before proper check-in) and they were able to check us in early which was nice. The service at the counter was nice but I did realize when I got back to the room that they charged me an...

We love Sun Viking! Can't wait til the next time we can get back. We love the Oceanfront rooms, and the staff is always friendly and courteous. The rooms and property are all very well maintained. This is probably our favorite place in Daytona Beach to stay.

We had come here for many years, left, and came back. The room decor was almost the same as it was when we first came in 2000. The reason we came back here is that a lot of places in the Daytona Beach area had comments about bugs in the rooms. I didn't see those kind of comments here. It...

The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The Kafe was convenient and the food was good at a very reasonable price. Access to the beach was fabulous. Both pools were very nice. I enjoyed having the option of sitting in a beach chair on the grassy area. Movie night was so much fun with my granddaughter.

Great family atmosphere! Not for the couple looking for romance. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great price for what you get - on beach, small playground, indoor pool, outdoor pool with slide, shuffleboard, basketball, and bean bag game. It also has a little cafe with relatively inexpensive breakfast and lunch. There were also some activities for the kids. Haven't...

It had all the amenities it said it had. However the efficiency room was very cramped for 5 people and the furnishings and woodwork are a bit dated. The bathroom doors were warped and hard to open. The pool area while small was a friendly environment. I thought the snack bar was a nice little place that was very affordable...
