3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

My 2 daughters and grandbaby stayed a few days ago--we were treated wonderfully! The rooms are not beautiful, but the view from the room was! It was clean and safe and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. They have beach chairs and equipment for guests to use free of charge, which we took advantage of and was a nice touch.

This is a great place to stay! New mattresses, doors, keys, and they are always working to make it better! Hot tub, pool, wifi, and great beach front views. I have been going to daytona/ormond beach for years and wouldnt even think of staying anywhere else! The rates are awesome and the people are like family! They are also pet friendly so bring the "kids" along!

My mother (95) and I stay at the Makai for four months every winter for the past 7 years. It's an ideal location for seniors, couples and the young. Friendly staff, friendly house keeping ladies, friendly and helpful all around. Situated right on the Atlantic Ocean with a excellent pool and whirl pool. Breakfast every morning in the common area for all and a great place to chat with friends while drinking your coffee and watching the news. Within walking distance to many good restaurants. Bus service right in front of the motel to downtown Daytona, Ormomd Beach and other destinations. What makes this place unique is that the same snow birds return every year and it builds a friendly bond among us and normally remain friends throughout the year. Excellent common area to have family parties. Various activities during the week. My favorite is the ice cream afternoon provided by the motel and organised by Lisa. Besides of the good service by all the rates are also great. I recommend to every one.

What a great time was had by all. This new owner is wonderful and has made a ton of improvements. Near the track, on the ocean, great eating places nearby and not as much noise as Daytona Beach, but all of the amenities! Eddie and I always enjoy our stay as do Buster and Rowdie. We will be back soon! See you in February.

I had to have some work done on my house and had to stay elsewhere. The staff was wonderful and made the whole thing easy. Loved staying by the pool and lovely access to the beach. Thanks Makai!

Unable to get downstairs oceanfront room, most areas are under major upgrades (none too soon) the whole place has needed work for a long time. We love the location & being direct oceanfront is great, but not a bargain on this visit. Save your $ and try later in time.
