Needed a hotel for the 24 hour race. We found this one and chose it because it had a heated pool and was on the beach. The first night's stay was great. The beds are comfy. The place was quiet. The second night, which was a Saturday, we discovered how terrible this place is. Room 110 has only a lamp... More

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel and we keep coming back. The hotel is right on the beach. We literally open the patio door and the beach is 30 ft or so away, excellent location. The rooms are clean and the staff are very friendly and accommodating to any of our needs. The pool is nice and relaxing... More

Let's just say.... You go here for the view; unbelievable view! Ormond beach is quiet unlike Daytona. We did a groupon special and it was better than expected. That said; this hotel needs some help. We stayed in room 225, it was clean, linens were clean, floor clean. It had a small refrigerator which was clean and a microwave which... More

We just stayed here on Christmas Eve 2014 and had two adjoining non smoking rooms. There was a dirty toilet plunger in the kitchen, dirty towels on the bathroom floor, cups with cigarette butts and beer bottle caps. Man at front desk was very friendly but we left hoping that nothing crawled on us and came home with us. I... More

We enjoyed our stay in this funky beachy hotel. We had a room right on the water - gorgeous view! But the room has a very odd combination of furniture and is old. They could use an interior designer to come in and revamp the place - but of course, if they did that, the rates would go way up!... More

Got this on a Groupon - 2 nights for around $100. For that price you couldn't beat this. Our room h had a full ocean view. In full disclosure I'm a Marriott gal, so my view of the accommodations was colored by that. The place was clean and the staff was friendly. No bugs. There were people living there full... More

Back for the 4th year with our winter friends at the Makai. The only thing brighter than their smiles is the sunshine on the beach. Continuous improvements and upgrades have made this year's 10-week vacation even more enjoyable. Join us for a relaxing vacation stay at the Makai in Ormond Beach, FL

Unfortunately we were only here for one night. Enjoyed it so much, we will be back. Upon arrival, Jackie was at the front desk, we explained that we were from Indiana and she was so helpful and nice. The room and view was very delightful, can't wait to return for a longer visit.

This hotel has it all from continental breakfast, a heated pool and hot tub, barbeques, to a washer and dryer. Impeccable views and friendly staff! Love coming here every year! I have stayed at other hotels in the area and none offer what the Makai does. Your stay will be unforgettable.

What a wonderful place. Looks newly renovated, very clean and friendly staff. We had a second floor, ocean view room, it was the best, just what we were looking for. It was great to sit on the balcony, relax and enjoy the ocean. If you want to just kick back and relax, there are plenty places around to get food... More
