Hard to beat this place for the price. You wake up and walk on to Kaanapali Beach. Visitors also have access to the pool and facilities of the Royal Lahaina Hotel. Our room had a nice view of the ocean and Molokai. We had a busy, action-packed four day/ four night stay in Maui and were sad to leave this...

I read a few reviews of this place beforehand and wasn't all that sure of what I would find, but this is the place to stay on the west side of the island and possibly on the entire island. It is a small two story building off to the side of the larger Royal Kona Resort. We had a beautiful...

Arrived late, quick check in, Nice Location, Can use the sister hotel for pool etc. Rooms were/had been updated, thou in fairness, still need a little TLC. The Price we payed was fantastic, If u want decent lodging & great price stay here, if u want 5* then stay either @ sister hotel & pay double!!!

I stayed there a couple of nights. Beautiful and spacious room, beautiful green garden, great onsite store and espresso bar. Amazing beach. It's close to other well known properties in Kaanapali and close to the town of Lahaina for great shops and food. I think it is great value and experience.

Cute little beach bungalow just off the beach. We originally stayed at the main hotel of Royal Lahaina 2 1/2 years ago for our honeymoon. And actually enjoyed the view from this room better. Here's a picture of the super moon 2016

Staying at the Ocean Inn is a bit like going to your nanna's house - it's older, slightly run down, the interior furnishings are a bit dated and the room has a slight musty smell, however it's scrupulously clean and very welcoming. Plus the rooms are huge inside and you absolutely cannot fault the location - only metres from the...

We stayed here 7 days and enjoyed every bit of it. Great place for the price. Hotel is being renovated and our room was very nice. Air conditioning was not as cold as it could have been but I was never hot. Very small fridge would have liked a bigger one. Other than that room was very clean and you...
