The best advice I have for you, is not where to stay, but WHEN to make reservations for your stay. The Daytona Beach area (10 mile radius) only has about 4,000 hotel/motel rooms, and remember, there are 600,000 bikers that come to Bike Week and 100,000 bikers that come to Biketoberfest. First come first served. During Bike Week, all the motels and campgrounds fill up rapidly. It's best to make your room reservations FAR in advance, one year in advance is not too soon.
The Daytona Beach area includes: Daytona Beach, South Daytona, Daytona Beach Shores, Ormond Beach, Holly Hill, Ponce Inlet and Port Orange.
New Smyrna Beach (10 miles south of Daytona, 15 minute drive)
Deland (15 miles west of Daytona, 20 minute drive)
St. Augustine (50 miles north of Daytona, 1 hour drive)
Ocala (50 miles west of Daytona, 1 hour drive)
Orlando (50 miles southwest of Daytona, 1 hour drive)
If you can't find a room in Daytona Beach, FL... you may have to check with surrounding towns:
Daytona Beach has a big beautiful beach but the police doesn't like people sleeping on it. So plan early and reserve a comfortable spot in a motel room or a campground.
BIKE WEEK (March) has been such a huge success for Daytona Beach that it made sense to have a second motorcycle event.
BIKETOBERFEST was created.
BIKETOBERFEST (Oct.) is not as big as BIKE WEEK (March), but it is growing. Finding a place to stay during Biketoberfest is easier than during Bike Week, but again, plan early and get a good spot.
If you're a die-hard fan of Bike Week who comes every year, one way to plan far in advance is to buy a Daytona timeshare with a set usage date during the first week of March. Fixed-week timeshares are great, because you never have to worry about missing the action or making room reservations again. Another option are floating-week timeshares that let you reserve accommodation dates up to two years ahead of time. This way you can split your time between Bike Week and Biketoberfest or adjust your arrival and departure depending when events fall each year.
