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Though this hotel is older and a bit outdated, it was quite comfortable with an amazing location and views.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

We stayed here for a VERY reasonable rate and it is literally steps from one of the best beaches! The inn is not a resort and you shouldn't expect that when staying here. Very minimal but we hardly spent anytime in our room except really to sleep. Staff was awesome and you have full use of the Royal Lahaina next... More

I do not understand why some reviewers have slammed the Ocean Inn. This hotel is an excellent value for Kaanapali Beach. Before we arrived I had read the reviews about checking in at the lobby of the Royal Lahaina, so we knew exactly where to go. A porter drove our bags to the adjacent Ocean Inn & carried our bags...

We went with two other couples on this vacation to Maui. We knew going into the trip that this was a very old hotel, but we were game as long as the rooms were clean because we knew the location was in a great spot and we were paying hundreds of dollars less than some of the other hotels just...

Arriving here started off on the wrong foot. Circled the hotel and couldn't find the front desk. No sign or mentioning that you need to go over to Royal Lahiana to check in. No problem because they ended up driving us over and carrying our bags up to our room. Ants. We had to hide all our food and anything... More

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
