Makai Beach Lodge
Ranked #21 of 29 Hotels in Ormond Beach
Reviewed 13 August 2012

We stayed in the newly renovated Lodge-it was VERY NICE! NO ELEVATORS though. (only 2 floors) but having knee problems.....it was a bit rough doing the stairs. Other than that it was AWESOME! Nice and clean, very family oriented! Fun spot has free loan of surf boards, bikes, boogie boards, floats, chairs umbrellas, everything you can think of! They also provide towels for the beach and pool. They have several grills with thatch covered umbrellas near the grills with picnic tables. The staff were fantastic-from Tristan (who booked for me)--to steve at check in and William who ALWAYS seemed to be there and ready to help! We will be going back next year for sure!

Room Tip: No elevator in the "Lodge" if you have climbing/walking issues-steer clear from that area...

The Makai Beach Lodge was the ideal place to spend a fun filled, relaxing, and unforgettable weekend. The rooms were extremely clean especially the kitchens and bathrooms. The staff was also very helpful always on call and willing to help 24/7. I personally cannot wait until next time I visit this amazing hotel!

Room Tip: Stay here!

this was my first time ever staying @ this hotel...The hotel's i am most familiar with to stay at were all booked up already so i had no choice to find another 1 & stay so this was the 1. we arrived on a Friday & the price was reasonable but not as reasonable as the other places i am use to staying at & this 1 did not even have the full kitchen's like the other 1 i stay at & this 1 cost more than the other 1. anyway all & all we made the best of it & stayed. we were getting settled in & the room's are joining & we were alone so we did not need to share the joining door. we were putting are stuff in place & my cousin noticed in the corner of her eye that the joining door opened & there was a boy & his drunk dad coming into our room. my cousin then went to the door & called my husband to the door with her & the father slammed the door on my husband whom is a terminal ill hospice patient @ home & the guy hit his shoulder with the door & we reported it to the front desk & no on did anything about it but compfort the other people by moving them to pool side ocean front room...we were in a ocean front room too but here this man is acting out in his drunk way & entered our room like that & his son & they get a pat on the back for it..WRONG!!!! so the manager came in on monday & my cousin was told to tell him when he come in & see what he wanted to do about it & the lady @ the front desk done told us we should get a late 3:00 check out or 1 free night..we got 1 hour late check out..wow!! how fast a hour goes by, so we loaded & left..so needless to say we will not be back to this place again...other than that happening & ruined our time because the drunk father told us we better sleep with our doors locked..hello that's a threat!!!! we should of called the cops is what we should have done but we were trying to let the staff handle it like they shold have but didn't. so that's about all i have to say about this place...it's not bad as far as the rooms go & it's like the saying goes..you get what you pay for.

Not sure about these bad reviews as you get what you pay for. At a great price for these rooms they are satisfactory. PROS: comfortable beds, lot's of pillows, connecting rooms, right on the beach, free rental of beach items, friendly staff, new TV's and great air conditioning systems in the rooms, check-out is 11:00 a.m., close to food and shopping. CONS: Room was dusty,outside is outdated, pool closes at DUSK!?!?, furniture is dated, pool need to be redone as there were chunks missing in little spots, kept getting kicked out of the free wifi and having to sign back in. We would stay here again when wanting a beach view on a budget.

Room Tip: 312-314 are good rooms

June 28-July5- New remodeled and updated room was awesome!. I was there 12 nights and every sinlge night was perfect. I was even there during TS Debby. I enjoyed watching the ocean put on a show during the storm. New tile floor, new beds, new pillows and bed spreads. Pool was spotless the entire time there. Front desk clerks were super sweet and the maid service was awesome and kept my room very clean. I can not wait until next year. We had 5 rooms totals and NO problem with any of them. Thank you new owner!!!!

My husband and I stayed in this hotel over memorial day weekend as our previous (gorgeous) hotel was fully booked. It was absolutely awful. The room was filthy the furniture broken and old, The bathroom falling apart.My husband tripped over a large metal bracket stuck out from under the bed. The whole place was so seedy and scruffy looking. The pool look unkempt and breakfast room scruffy. There was a big room upstairs that i think used to be a bar but was now just a dumping ground for broken furniture. We could not wait to get out of the place. When they offered us a 10% voucher for our next stay I almost laughed out loud. This was the worst (but most expensive) hotel we stayed in while we were in florida.

I had a splitting migraine from the sun...went and asked the front desk for some reg coffee to make in my room because husband bought decaf on accident...which they have in the lobby in packets...the hateful woman at desk said they don't do that or something to the effect. When we checked in...they said..."If there is anything we can do please let us know"...the first thing you ask for....you get rude...don't bother me behavior...too many nice affordable hotels/motels in area...do yourself a service and go next door for your vacation stay.
