Hello everyone. My fiancé and I are planning on honeymooning in Daytona Beach with stops in Orlando for Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. So far on Expedia, we have found a great deal on the "Inn on the Beach" for $55 a night, but it comes with 2 double beds and an oceanview room. Can anyone give me any recommendations for a more "romantic" accomodation and not too expensive, possibly a suite that is on the cheaper side? Thanks

I would goto the west coast of florida like St pete beach or treasure island. Daytona Beach sucks and will leave a sour taste in your mouth about florida.

Don't go to Daytona for a honeymoon unless you are willing to spend some money. Daytona is a trashy, redneck, honkytonk party town, and I can say that, I've lived here my whole life. It's a fine town if you wanna party, but DO NOT honeymoon here. Go a little further north, St Augustine, Ponte Vedra, even Jacksonville. Unless you are willing to spend some money on the Hilton or the Shores Resort, stay away from Daytona.

St Augustine is an excellent choice glad the other poster mentioned that city.

I'd be careful about getting too cheap of a hotel. The rates have gone up over the past years because condo's are buying up the hotels so the ones that are left are charging higher prices. I've been to Daytona many times (I can't even count how many) and i'd be afraid of what $55 oceanview would give you. I'm talking nasty rooms probably for that rate. I'm actually going to Daytona next weekend and the Holiday Inn is where i have stayed the last few times i've gone plus they have a free full breakfast buffet for free but the rates are $117 a night.

My advise is not go to to Daytona, it is run down and I also think you can do much better.

If I had to do it al over again I would go to Ana Maria Island, Siesta Key or one those beautiful beaches on the gulf side.

Then you can hit Disney, Sea World etc within an hour or two drive.
Daytona is not a romantic city.

Romantic cities that are close to the areas you want to go to will be on the gulf side.

Ft Lauderdale is cool but is too far from Disney etc.

Look at Siesta Keys, Ana Maria or Clearwater areas.

How about New Smyrna Beach or Cocoa Beach? Are they better than Daytona?

Yes they are much better then Daytona but if it`s a honeymoon why not go somewhere memorable like south beach, Ft lauderdale, key west, destin, long boat key.

It`s your honeymoon make it great you only do it once.

Here is a nice little B&B in south miami beach.......http://sobeyou.us/

Ditto! I'm from Ormond, which is nicer, but FSUMike's correct about Daytona. St. Augustine's wonderful. Great restaurants, beaches, nightlife. May be more expensive, but it's your honeymoon! They even have horse-drawn carriage rides along Avenida Menedez. How romantic!
