So you pull up to this beautiful beach resort and you know something is wrong. You know you booked a 2.0 star and this had to be a min of 4! You go in and ask the receptionist if this is the right place and she smiles and advises you that you are in the right place... You check in... More

We had a fantastic stay and will come again! The rooms were clean and comfortable - pay a little extra for oceanfront as it's worth it! All I can think when I read the negative reviews is that people were expecting something very different. This is hundreds of dollars cheaper per night than anything else beachfront in the area. Of...

The motel is located within the grounds of the Royal Lahaina Resort, which is a great place. It is very old and damp smelling and the shower/bathroom desperately needs updating. The bed was comfy though- I would suggest this place if you're on a budget and not going to be in the room other than to sleep. The beach bar... More

We were on the 2nd floor there is no elevator and the bellhop from the resort did not come over to help us. The wall paper in the bathroom was peeling off the wall. The room was comfortable. The AC worked and the brought us clean towels everyday. However on the last day after they had cleaned our room I... More

This is part of the Royal Lahaina and so you get to use all of their facilities at a lower cost. The location is excellent. Wonderful grounds, nice beach and pool. The bar/resteraunt has great food and reasonably priced. The room was a good size with a fridge and coffee maker. The balcony gave a glimpse of the ocean .... More

Hey husband and I had never been to Maui before this trip so we didn't know how the island was laid out or what to expect. We had found a great deal online and decided to book it on a whim. It turned out better than expected. When we arrived at the hotel, we checked in at the front desk... More

We don't know how this hotel got a four star rating. The check in is at the Royal Lahaina resort and you would think this is good. However once registered you are driven on a buggy to the Ocean Inn, that's when the truth hits home. The stairwells are not a good introduction as they are jaded and worn. The... More

We stayed here 6 nights, it was very affordable in the Maui marketplace. Great beach access and all the resort access as well. The restaurant was expensive and it would of been nice to have a microwave at least, there is a little bar fridge in the room but that is it. The resort has beach towels for your use... More
