This is great stay for your money! Privately owned, they went out of their way to make sure we got exactly the room we wanted, The hotel has been around and is showing some wear and tear but the room was clean and comfortable. It was too cold to use the pool, but it looked great! And the view....fabulous...right on... More

This is the worst run hotel I have been in.I'm very disappointed in the way they kept the rooms.The lobby smelled bad and the man who checked us in was also the person changing the towels in the room.This is a place that should be shut down.I don't recommend anybody stay there.

My wife and I were there for New Years this year. The staff is AMAZING and the room was clean and big. We went to sleep to the sound of the ocean crashing on the beach. Every morning we had a delightful breakfast (included) and then swam in the ocean. At night we would relax in the hot tub under... More

This motel sits right on the beach and I believe all the rooms might have a view of the ocean, although some are a side view, which is still very pretty. If you are use to 4-5 star accommodations, this is not the place for you. It's old but our room was neatly painted, clean, had a frig and microwave... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Makai hotel 12/19-12/30, and it was awesome! The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect! They upgraded our room to a room with a free kitchen. Made sure the air conditioning was the EXACT temperature we wanted it. The only dislike I had - I'm INCREDIBLY afraid of... More

Booked thru Hotels.com, oceanfront came out to less than $100!!! King size bed, mini-fridge, left the door open all night (3rd floor) to hear the ocean and get fresh air. Brought champagne and OJ and enjoyed mimosas on the balcony in the morning... (No OJ at breakfast), but they do have tasty cinnamon waffles. I would come again. Could use... More

My girlfriend and I stopped here on a long drive up from Miami and arrived at 2 am. To our surprise the man who was working at night, Tom I believe, was very jolly and ready to help us. We had a great conversation with him and were shocked he was so accommodating at that time of the morning. The... More

We have been here 2 times in the past. Best bet is to book a ocean view room. These rooms are only in a 2 story building and are mostly remodeled. We had an awesome shower, great view from our private deck with a view of the ocean!!! Clean room, flat screen tv, ac was cold!!

We have stayed here once before, we were in the lodge section, about 8 units off by themselves, nice, newly renovated. This time, by my mistake, I reserved an ocean view, rather than ocean front efficiency. The room was very musty smelling, not impressed with what we saw. I went to the front desk and they changed us to an... More

We stayed here only one night, but for the price ($70) we thought it was alright. I was disappointed that I called ahead to confirm they had a hot tub only to find it was out of order. I understand that the price was good considering you can't expect a Hilton/Marriot for less than $150ish. Our room was clean and... More
