We have stayed at the makai a couple of times before. It is an older motel. It isn't perfect but the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. My daughter and her husband had some pieces missing from the blinds in their room. If you are looking for an updated place with perfect paint it isn't the place for... More

Hello, Thanks for the positive review. I'm glad you found our breakfast and staff to your liking. I apologize for the missing slats in one of your rooms, the blinds are currently being replaced with curtains and so on your next stay that should definitely not be a concern. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you again very... More

The only good thing about this property is that it is on the ocean. Very old and rundown inside and out. Our room was a "non smoking room" BUT apparently the one next door wasn't. Day and night the smoke smell was horrendous that came through our room. The blinds were broke no darkening drapes. No curtain over kitchen window... More

This trip was great. The room was clean people have said that the windows weren't clean and taken pics from the outside of them but really what it is is that they are tented so the outside of the tent has an off color. The inside is a perfect outside view. The people were very nice the pool is decent.... More

We stayed in an oceanfront double bed room with a kitchen. The room was clean, had tile floors, small (but not mini) fridge with enough room for all our drinks and food. Kitchen also had an oven, stove and microwave. They also have connecting rooms if needed. We traveled with our dogs and the room provided plenty of space to... More
