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Though this hotel is older and a bit outdated, it was quite comfortable with an amazing location and views.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

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
