Everyone who works there were all very helpful and friendly. The kitchen is a great asset! The bed was very comfortable as well. And, the location to the beach is perfect! The only downside for me was too many kids. But, it is a family friendly place. It could use a little updating but then they would probably charge more.... More

Purchased on Groupon for what I thought was going to be reasonable and I had no idea what I was getting into....they didn't have our room ordered so they said they gave us a free upgrade to an Ocean View room (room 324). Thought that was wonderful....until we walked in. When you walk in the room there is one light... More

The Makai is my choice, every time. I live in Ormond Beach and this is the perfect get-away spot. If you need a spa? Not so much. If you want a place that's clean and on the ocean? YES! We only sleep in the room, the rest of our time is spent on the beach. It's perfect for a family... More

We went on a beach getaway to the Makai before heading to Orlando. Upon arrival we were happy to learn that we received a bottom floor room as requested and that it was ocean front as paid for. The room was clean and had obvious wear. The wear an tear didn't bother us though because we knew upon booking that... More

We stayed at the Makai Beach Lounge a few weeks ago and enjoyed the bottom floor where we could walk out easily to the beach. We did pay more then other levels but, worth it. Today I call to book the same room and Tom TOLD me "we can not promise a bottom level walk out room" .... Huh ???... More

The exterior of the hotel needs some improvements, but the room was nice. Close to several nice restaurants and putt putt golf. Has grills to grill out on and kitchenettes in the rooms. Has a pool, jacuzzi, and shuffle board. Right on the beach.

Basically this place is cheap and it shows... The front desk people are great. I wish I could remember the name of the man who checked me in, he was great. There was a computer in the "lobby" that I was able to use, that was nice. Free breakfast, though it was not very good at all. The towels were... More

So first off let me see that Chris, jasmine and Kristina were very well customer oriented. What wasn't encouraging was walking in my room and the floor was filthy and I had no phone. Nothing was resolved which was discouraging. I can't say I won't return but next time the room will be thoroughly checked before I stay in a... More

I have stayed many times herein the past years. It's an older hotel which is fine but it could still be cleaned! It was very very dirty!!! I had to make sure that I put shoes on just to go to the bathroom. Also hold on tight when I did because they toilet was very loose and tilted. The kitchen... More
