This was the best deal I found on Maui. The location is awesone...right on the Kaanapali Beach. This hotel is part of the Royal Lahaina resort and you have access to all amenities while paying 3 times less on your room. The rooms do look old and they are not sparkling clean but that's why you are paying less. Try...

I'll admit that the other reviews had us so scared we considered cancelling our reservation, but I'm so glad we didn't ... we loved our week long stay! This is NOT an upscale hotel and if that's why you're coming to Maui I would suggest staying someplace else, but it has several things going for it: 1) location -- you're...

I've read the other reviews and agree with everything that everyone else says. Yes, it's old and yes, it's rundown and yes, it needs updating BUT, for the price, the location and the fact that you get to use everything that the Royal Lahaina has right next door, it's a bargain. The A/C works, the shower works, the toilet works,...

My biggest issue with this property is the regular metal key you use to get in your room. I inadvertently went to the wrong room and my key opened that room door!!!! I was shocked. I went and reported this to the front desk as a Safety and Security issue and they told me they would alert maintenance. You would...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 night. Nothing fancy but very near a great beach. We ended up with an ocean view. I would say it was worth what we paid. We spent most of the time taking in the Maui sites as we were spending 5 more nights at the Westin.

This was our second stay at the Kaanapali Ocean Inn. We were just as happy as the first time we stayed there. It is a dated and tired old hotel, but the maid service is excellent and the front desk will do a lot to make sure you are happy there. The beds are hard but the rooms are clean...

The location of our room was just steps from the beach. We had somewhat of an ocean view from our balcony. Love the size of the room but the bed was as hard as if I was sleeping on the floor. The staff is very friendly and attentive especially Rosario and Dominic. I was disappointed though when I found the...

This is my 3rd visit to Maui but it's the first time I've stayed at the Kaanapali Ocean Inn. The first 2 visits I was with family and we stayed at the Royal Lahaina Resort. I found out after booking this hotel that we (my boyfriend and me) would have all the amenities of the Royal Lahaina Resort for about...

This place is terrible! You have to pay for parking ($15) a day, to use the safe ($3.75) a day, there is no ice machine on site - you have to go to the 3rd floor at an adjoining hotel, it is so outdated and dirty - you would not believe it. There is mold in the bathroom - painted...

OK. We had a garden cottage room reserved next door at the Royal Lahaina and while checking in we were asked if we wanted an ocean front room and we said sure. So, they sent us to their property right next door. First of all, the review would have been two stars, but the amazing view boosted it. There was...
