Please read and save your hard-earned money. This place is horrible! We were booked for a single night- for a one day get-away for my husband and I. When we arrived, they first put us in the wrong room. It happens and they put us in the correct room. We didn't even stay for an hour. The glass to the...

While traveling to West Palm Beach for surgery for my son, we stopped to stay on the beach. I stayed here as a child and had great memories of staying here. It was a mess. It was dirty and I was extremely unhappy. I asked to leave but they wouldn't give me a refund. I got up to get my...

First of all, the reason I wanted to stay here is because my family and I used to come here on summer vacations when I was a child...30ish years ago...so, my experience here was partly nostalgia. It IS an older hotel, but for what I paid to take my two daughters on Fall break, (we asked for a room on...

Location, location, location!!Great staff, great price. A little dated but Oceanside view and the friendly staff make up the difference. Breakfast & coffee was a bonus as well. Highly recommend this hotel and Oceanside is great, fall asleep watching and listening to the surf

We asked for a ocean front room which afforded an excellent view of the ocean and beach. This is a really old hotel which has had it seems, some renovation. The next door neighbors were noisy, the walls don't seem to have much sound insulation. The room was clean and had a fridge and microwave. Beds were soft and clean....

I recently had the good fortune to return to the Makai. This was a "split" vacation where I was at the Makai for 2 nights and returned 3 nights later for an additional 4 nights. As previously reviewed, this is a clean room, I opted for the King with a kitchen and balcony oceanfront. The management was very helpful in...

After all of the reviews I saw online, I was reluctant to stay here! I decided to visit (being a local) one day before we booked. I looked around and thought that it did indeed need some upgrades, but we decided to book anyway, especially with it being pet friendly and all. When we got here, I got a parking...

We picked this hotel for our Labor Day weekend, it was not cheapest in the area but was midrange. We reserved a ocean view, it said in the description that there was a balcony.
