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

There is no sign of this hotel in the resort area so it took almost an hour to find the hotel at night. We had to ask four people to get to the hotel. This hotel is very very old and there is no elevator!! How can families with small children and elderly people go up and down the stairs... More

I was nervous about this place after reading all the negative reviews. However, I will say it's decent for the price we paid. I was in Maui for a week for my friends wedding, and it was totally worth it. It is walking distance from the Royal Lahaina on the same property! The staff was average friendly, but the service...

Though this hotel is older and a bit outdated, it was quite comfortable with an amazing location and views. We had a 2nd floor ocean front room with a comfy king bed. The cleaning service was excellent and we had a mini refrigerator and nice TV in the room, though no microwave. We enjoyed the nightly luau music and show... More

Stayed at the inn for a week with our family (having two girls age 7 & 8). We enjoyed our stay- checking in at Royal Lahaine service was great. The inn was old however our room was very fine. It had a good size, fine beds and everything we needed. The cleaning could be better on daily basis.. We had... More

To start with, our king room wasn't available so we were stuck in a 2 queen room. The shower was rusting and was missing the cover around the pipe against the wall. The adjoining room doors do no good. Every morning, our neighbor would puke and it sounded like he was in our room doing it. Also, when he went... More
