Oddi made his first court appearance on Monday and is being held without bond, The Herald said. He has been charged with multiple felonies.
The shootout happened on Friday after police responded to reports of an "active shooter" at the hotel at around 1:30 a.m. Police said Oddi, 42, scaled the hotel's fence and stole an American flag, which he draped across the reception desk.
The Herald, citing authorities, said Oddi was spewing "anti-Trump rhetoric," and also spoke against former President Barack Obama. Oddi allegedly exchanged gunfire with police before he was taken into custody.
According to the Herald, Oddi lived in a complex nearby and lists himself on social media as a businessman and real estate investor. He was born in South Africa and is of Italian descent.
Doral city mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez said officials do not believe the incident was related to terrorism.
Trump was not at the club at the time of the incident.
