Check-in was easy. No amenities in the room, which is fine... just know to bring your own shampoo, etc. You can get a hair dryer from the front desk. Shower barely worked, dust/dirt in the corners. Ashtray buckets in front of the rooms clearly don't get emptied often. Didn't see any bugs and the bed was comfy. This place is ok if all you are looking for is a basic room on the cheap.

Very Old I Don’t Recommend
The front desk gal was very nice but you do have to wait for someone to come as the office locked. The hotel is very old, never updated and the beds were completely worn. No bugs but I left the next morning it was to horrible.

Nice stay
It was nice service, we stayed in room 126 and we could use the room on time and it was exactly as we hoped for. Very friendly people at front desk.

July 4th Weekend Sahara Morel Stay
We were pleasantly surprised to find a great deal for a 2 night stay at the Sahara. The staff was very friendly and did allow a late checkout. The place is definitely in need of a complete update but everything was in working order. Would stay again if faced with similar scenario.

Exceptional 10.0
This motel has charm. We only stayed one night in order to go to the beach, but the front desk staff that I interacted with was amazing. They really are good people and even recommended us a place to eat for dinner. The motel itself is fairly dated, but very clean. If you are looking for something right next to the beach that is safe for your family and not too expensive, this is a good bet.

Quick overnight
Good, no frills hotel and very clean. What made it so enjoyable was the lady at the front desk. She's been there for 23 years. She was a pleasure to talk to.

Nice motel at Daytona for the money.
This is a family run motel so I did not expect a lot but it was a nice stay. The owner, who also runs the front desk is really friendly lady. The staff are helpful and will get you what you need. It is a basic motel but clean and safe. The beach is cross the street. It would be nice if it had a pool. I would stay there again when I am in the area.

60s living!
The property was not updated from the 60s! The carpet is shredded at the front door and bathroom and falls short of threshold! The hardwood furniture was definitely purchased at flee market and the TV was sitting on a end table by the refrigerator that was rusting on the bottom. When I checked in there was no mention that coffee was available in the office because there was no coffee maker in the bedroom. They did not open until 730 am. The place should be RENTED to individuals in a lower income bracket! I would rate the motel at 1.8 and the personnel 3.5

Poor 2.0
Needs a complete overhaul and health dept review
Motel was not updated in any way and filthy. There was no deadboalt or backup lock on the door. Staff was very hospitable but there is no making up for the inferior conditions.
