Editor’s Review of Bahama House
Families are among the many loyal guests at this beloved oceanfront hotel in Daytona Beach Shores, an area that lies about five miles south of Daytona Beach's Main Street and is pleasantly removed from the raucous side of town. The hotel's name might lead you to imagine a bed and breakfast of sorts, but Bahama House is actually a 10-story building located right on the ocean. Every room is angled to have a full or partial ocean view, complete with a private balcony. Rooms are extremely spacious, too, with several options for full kitchens and connecting configurations.
There's a pool and hot tub directly facing the ocean, making it convenient to hop between the beach and the poolside lounge area throughout the day. And while
there's not a whole lot in the way of attractions and restaurants in the hotel's immediate surroundings, you're just a short drive away from several attractions, such as the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse (Florida's tallest!) and the Daytona International Speedway. You're also just one hour from Orlando, and can take an easy day trip to Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center. For a family beach vacation to remember -- right on the oceanfront and with lots of room to spread out and make yourself at home -- this family-owned hotel is hard to beat. less

The sheer spaciousness of all 95 rooms in the 10-story hotel is what first impresses families upon check-in here. And the added bonus comes in the interesting angle at which the hotel is built, making it possible to have ocean views even from the rooms on the side of the hotel. In addition to ocean views, every room here has a balcony, too. Granite countertops, flat-screen TV's and complimentary Wi-Fi are also standard in all rooms.
All of the Full Oceanfront Rooms are actually efficiencies with two queen beds and full kitchens outfitted with two-burner stoves, ovens, toasters, full-size refrigerators and all the utensils you need for cooking meals. The same room set-up is available in the oceanview category, too, which is cheaper than oceanfront, but still offers you a balcony with a view of the Atlantic. Standard Oceanview Rooms have two queen beds and all come with microwaves, mini-fridges and coffee makers. You can also choose from a King Efficiency in the oceanview category, which gives you a king bed and a full kitchen. Only a few connecting rooms are available, and are all on the oceanview side of the building rather than oceanfront. Options include connecting an Oceanview Room with two queen beds to a King Efficiency with a full kitchen, or connecting a room with two queens to another standard two queen room (there's no full kitchen in either).
Rollaway beds can be brought into any room for an additional nightly fee. The hotel does not have provide play yards or cribs, however, so you'll want to bring your own.
Tip: While all of the rooms have ocean views, you'll get the most stunning views the higher you are (which also removes you from pool noise) -- the seventh floor and higher give the most impressive ocean views.
