This is probably the last inexpensive resort on Maui/Kihey. Its basic but the apartments on the beach side of the road has nice balconies and its own little unique beach. If we had a chance, we would go back tomorrow.

Closed for total makeover/replacement. Forget all of the old reviews - this place is gone forever. Whatever takes its place will be completely different, and assuredly much more expensive. There is nothing left to say except that Kihei has lost a piece of history.

A memory of happiness and joy. My wife and I are in love with this place. Beautiful grounds of acres of palm trees and manicured lawns, a private beach, and nice size pool, but above all that, for a honeymoon, its perfectly romantic.

Have heard recently that the Maui Lu has closed its doors. My wife and I had stayed at this true Maui gem for the last eleven years. We have many truly heartfelt and wonderful memories of the staff and hotel. It really was a special place that took you back to the days of old Hawaii. The staff and hotel... More

I was so sad to hear the Maui Lu closed. I found out when I was booking another stay. Stayed there over 10 times. It was the best part of Maui. Loved the grounds, the friendly cats and even the cats. It always pissed me off seeing so many negative reviews over the years. People expect the Ritz on the... More

stayed 3 times now. it's not meant to be the Ritz. Affordable ocean front rooms. Saw someone with a dog staying there. beaches were very clean but water is murky. snorkel just south of there. shops and food are not far, easy access to snorkeling, scuba lessons, boating, and Molokini.

It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere and you need a car to get around. The rooms are very old, they are kept as clean as they can be but not up to scratch. (The whole "resort" is being taken over by a big hotel chain next month, I'm sure they will demolish the lot and rebuild - they... More

I stayed at this hotel in 2008 and 2013. I was looking for a hotel that didn't tear a hole in your finances. The hotel is situated ideally for trips to Haleakala, Lahaina etc. Unfortunately it was already getting to be a little bit outdated. I would have liked to book again for this November, but wasn't able to. I'm... More

Our experience was horrible. We stayed at the "Resort" for 2 nights, and were clearly fooled by the pictures on their website. Looks like a pretty nice and clean place but it is not! It's dirty, old, musty, smells very very bad. Didn't wanna touch ANYTHING, not even the doorknob. The room was dark, the carpet was very dirty and... More

Under any condition, do not stay at this hotel. We stayed here only one night, and that was one night too many. We had 7 nights booked at a nice resort in Ka'anapali, but we were getting in late the night before our stay at the resort started. So we booked a hotel for one night close to the airport... More

I am sorry to have disappointed you. I do wish that we had had the opportunity to meet. I can assure you that the Maui Lu is not the disappointment that you described to many, many of our guests. The property is unique and does not offer the same experience to everyone. Nonetheless, I sincerely appreciate your having been our... More
