This was definitely not a treat it was a trick. They advertise Oceanfront views from every window, not. The first room was not a oceanfront and smell like the city pound. They moved us 225 smell better but everything went downhill from there, small tv could hardly see it ,very out dated inside, exposed electrical outlet strip ,floor where very... More

Hello Bsprigg, I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations on this stay. I will certainly look into the room and to check on your complaints. All our tv's are new 32" LED's with some 40" LED's mixed in. As far as I know no one has ever complained about the size but we are slowly replacing the 32's with... More

Read completely. I stayed here in July and had a HORRIBLE experience and wrote about it on here. I was contacted via email by the owner Luke who was extremely apologetic regarding the whole situation. He offered for us to come stay again and we did this past weekend. We got in late Friday night and had no problems checking... More

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 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
