The staff was friendly and accomodated my handicaped travel companion with a first floor walk out room 1 unit away from the pool without any hesitation or upcharge. The pool was sparkling clear and cleaned each morning. The full kitchen was a nice feature. The AC was ice cold and very quiet. The decor needs an update, but the unit... More

I visited the Makai in June without making a reservation and I couldn't have been happier with my selection! I was greeted by some of the friendliest employees I've ever encountered! The manager, Steve, and front desk person, Chris, were very informative about the area and were also so very accommodating! They offered me a bicycle if I wanted to... More

Beware of this place. Even though the location is good, the rooms leave something to be desired. The rooms are dirty. There is no cleaning behind the furniture. When my wife pulled out the sofa bed, the were wrappers, food, dirt and what looked like to dried coffee on the floor. The breakfast is just average, you would be better... More

This is definitely and older hotel and could use some rennovating. The location is fantastic as it is walking distance from everything you need. We stayed in room 206 which was on the south side with 1/2 beach and 1/2 city view. This room also had a small deck/balcony outside which was kind of neat. The rooms are just steps... More

I booked a room at the Makai for a weekend getaway. Although this is a much older property and the exterior building maintenance could be a bit neater, I loved staying at this hotel. It is direct oceanfront. The room was very clean and smelled fresh. The shower pressure was awesome. Room had a fridge and microwave. The floors are... More

We again stayed at the Makai while visiting Daytona Beach last week. Everyone that worked there was super friendly and helpful. For the price you cant beat the place. You do have to get past the appearance, outside, it is a bit old and tired, but our room was clean and remodeled and quiet. . Breakfast is even included in... More

We had a last minute change and ended up staying at the Makai Beach Lodge. Chris checked us in. Chris was very accommodating. He was very friendly during our entire stay. This is a Ocean Front Resort. Most resorts charge you for almost all the amenities. At Makai the beach umbrellas, chairs, surf boards, boogie boards and sand toys were... More

The front desk reps were friendly, check in was quick. Our ocean front room was large and sort of recently renovated....brand new tile in bathroom, however the toilet was off center. For some reason, our bathroom wasn't cleaned after the previous guest checked out. By the time we even noticed this, we had all of our crap(aka luggage) lugged up... More
