This place was nothing like what they describe on their website. The beds are full size and very uncomfortable. The so called efficiency/kitchenette was the worst thing that I have ever seen. The fridge was rusted, the stove was may be from 1900, I am not even sure it worked, I was scared to open the microwave and the little... More

My family and I have been vacationing at the Makai Beach Lodge for over 20 years. Friendly and helpful staff have become like family to us. They always there to take care of our needs while we are visiting. It is not a high rise building nor anything fancy but it has a home feeling with it. They just remodeled... More

We left the Laquinta on interstate at same price because we were so unhappy. The charming young clerk Chris was such a gracious host, Our room was large and spotless, tho not the Ritz in luxury, it was better in it was small property, clean, personable, and large rooms, pool and jacuzzi. The ocean view and balcony was breathtaking, the... More

***DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS HOTEL****** This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. There were roaches everywhere, the room was so dirty that if you walked around without shoes, your feet would be black in no time. There was a ball of hair in the tub from the previous guest. The towels were old &... More

I have stayed in this hotel multiple times, and have enjoyed it each and every time. And everything has been clean and well kept. We normally stay on the 2nd or 3rd floor, in a king suite overlooking the balcony. And I couldn't ask for a more relaxing environment. The manager and the guy at the counter did everything they...

I am amazed that so many people have commented that the updates are great and so much work has been done-I can only imagine what this place looked like before. Our room was dirty-The edges had not been vacuumed for a long time and there were piles of dust and dirt around the entire perimeter of the room. The furniture... More

Our family, Floridans, have been going to the Makai since 2007. When we made our reservations for a beach view room, we made certain to see if we could have a late checkout, as we were bringing our 14 year old small dog with us and we were taking a day off of work. We were told that we could... More

Don't believe any pictures they have on their website! Even the pictures of the location are a lie. They put pictures of the buildings surrounding the boardwalk in Daytona, nowhere near the hotel. The rooms need a complete scrub down! The kitchens are a joke, and they stink. Everything about the place is dirty and rundown. The parking lot is... More

Photos of this hotel looked nice online, but clearly it was not. The only reason I rated it "poor" and not "terrible" is for the view, which the hotel does not control. The sliding doors leading to the balcony had a broken latch, so you kinda had to stick your finger into the hole where the broken latch was and... More
