After reading some previous reviews I was bracing myself for a hotel room that I had to endure rather than enjoy...but I was pleasantly surprised (it's all about expectations I guess!). It's true that the rooms are dated and a little run down - but nothing at all bad, and perfectly clean, comfortable and functional. Since the place belongs to... More

We stayed at the Inn for three nights. Although the rooms are in dire need of renovation, they were clean and the staff is friendly. With less amenities that come with the lower price (no elevators or ice in the building, small showers), its a good value because of the location. We knew this up front but hardly stayed inside...

On arrival we were greeted with friendly & helpful staff even though we had arrived quite a few hours before check in, No problem they had a room ready. We were in an older building which was a little tired looking,(they were in the process of renovations and maintenance on the lower levels), but our room was quiet, larger &... More

This hotel Hale is in bad need of renovation. The room was dusty, moldy, and walls peeling. Other wise, room was just okay. The sink, toilet, and carpet was clean and had a refrigerator that worked. The parking was okay to. The best thing is that this hotel is on the same property as Royal Lahaina. As a guest you... More

Very Very dated rooms. It was a real disappointment for our holiday. Kaanapali resort itself was nice, but the Ocean Inn rooms were well below average. Do yourself a favour and spend a little more for the nice part of the resort.

We stayed in the Kaanapali Ocean Inn on the 3rd floor (no lift) and we had a great view of the Luau for free from our balcony! The accommodation is fine - no frills and you have access to the facilities of the main hotel the Royal Lahaina. We liked the beach cabanas of the apartments next door and hired... More

Affordable hotel with a nice sandy beech stretching far out left and right in front of it. 2 pools that are not crowded and a nice terrasse from which you can watch the sunset at dinner. The restaurant offers a good variety of very tasty food at an average price level. The room we had was not very upbeat and... More

Lahaina, most definitely. Too THAT building. Only if it too gets a make over. Heck, new carpet, a paint job, a GOOD cleaning and some hairnets on the laundry and hoLet me start by saying we LOVE Royal Lahaina resort and this is our 3rd visit. But on a stricter budget, and after reading these reviews, I bit the bullet... More

The Inn seemed in pretty bad shape when we were there this month. Most, if not all, 1st floor units had paper over windows and were off-market. Maybe they are working on them? although there was "air conditioning" It was a bit warm and humid in room. They had left a can of damp-rid type stuff on top of dresser,... More
