We stayed at the Dayton House Resort this past weekend. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly, the resort is nice, the pools are nice and the breakfast was very good. But the rooms, very dated. Our first room had blood on the carpet and hair on the bed, so they

TheAshleyC, we appreciate that you chose to visit with the Dayton House a second time. More than 80% of our patrons are return visitors and that says a great deal about our team and the service they provide to our guests. We hope to have the entire suites building re-opened by the end of next week and are pleased that you all were able to experience the improvements made. In addition to the newly refreshed suites tower, all reservations also include daily hot breakfast at the Rose Room. We trust you all were able to sample the offerings there as well. Remember, the third time is the charm!

Awesome view and very comfortable beds. Seating within the room provided for relaxation and dining while taking in the view. Breakfast was delicious, with bacon done just right! Everything we needed was provided. Wish we could have stayed longer. Planning to return before

What floor is room 10s in the south tower? It’s supposed to be newly remodeled
As someone else said, just call. The staff are wonderful and will answer any questions. Just try to avoid calling at check in times as it tends to get quite busy.

I'm not sure, we are up north. Maybe you can get in touch with with the resort itself to find out.

Dayton House has tables and umbrellas. Though they are on a grassy/sandy area on the resort property, they are not directly on the beach. Perfect though if you just need a place to retreat to in-between trips to the beach, or just to hang out. The city does have umbrellas and chairs for rent directly on the beach. I didn't use them, so not sure about the price per day use. They do take them down right at 5 pm, so keep that in mind if you plan to stay for later hours.

Just no glass by the pool. But we mixed our own drinks and put them in Yeti style tumblers. Be discreet on the beach and you will be okay, but technically the city has laws against it. We drank but put it in the tumblers.
