The Hawaiian Inn offers a charming Hawaiian flavor. It has 208 rooms total. Five rooms and five parking spots are available for the disabled. If you call ahead with an arrival time, Hawaiian Inn staff will gladly have someone available to help you with bags and the lobby door.
The lobby is large and roomy, and it offers wireless Internet and a pretty good-sized restroom. The lobby restroom has rails, a raised sink, and a private toilet for those in wheelchairs.
The elevators are spacious enough for a wheelchair, and Braille can be found under both the elevator buttons and the room numbers.
The Hawaiian Inn's rooms are nice, and they have ocean views and balconies. The doorway to the balcony is 28-1/2 inches wide, plenty wide enough for my 27 inch-wide chair. A speakerphone is available and has a cord long enough to reach the bedside table. Staff is more than happy to raise the bed upon request. (I've had that done to accommodate my Hoyer lift, which requires an 8-inch clearance.) The bathroom is equipped with rails and a high sink, and shower benches are available upon request.
The hotel offers several amenities. There is a large outdoor pool and deck, as well as an indoor pool. Other fun extras include shuffleboard, putt-putt golf, a Hawaiian gazebo, and even some hammocks. Also at the Hawaiian Inn, you'll find a breakfast buffet, a coffee shop, a laundry room, a poolside bar/grill called the Tiki Room, and the O'hana Luau dinner show which includes a Polynesian buffet.
The Hawaiian Inn is in a great location on the beach. Some of the local restaurants in the area include Italian, and Sherry's Buffet (home-style cooking). The hotel is just one block from a beach access ramp, which is used by cars and pedestrians. Volusia County offers Surf Chairs for the disabled. Surf Chairs are large, maneuverable chairs made from PVC, with large wheels that allow them to easily be pushed on the sand. They can be delivered and picked up anywhere on the beach upon request.
