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

This hotel was great for a affordable place to stay in Maui. Our room was very clean and the resort amenities were plenty. This hotel is walking distance to the whalers villages which has about 3 restaurants that were always very good. This hotel is right on a nice sandy beach. The luau at this hotel was also great. Would... More

We've vacationed in Hawaii maybe 12 times since 1990, always for 2 weeks or more - most stays using 'points' from business travel so we stayed at some pretty nice hotels in the Islands (on Maui, the Marriotts, the Ritz-Carlton and once at some old, old dive hotel by the airport :-) just because we weren't ready to leave just...

This property is part of the Royal Lahaina, which is a nice property. The Kaanapali Ocean Inn is next door. It is on the beach but that is ALL it has going for it. The hotel is dirty. I don't mean just a little dirty, I mean NASTY dirty. Stains on carpet, stains on walls, etc. Then there is the... More

This is in a great location of Ka'anapali Beach. Easy to get to driving. Restaurants and shopping are all very close at Whalers Village. There is a free trolley that runs as well to Whalers Village and other neighboring beach resorts. Room was large and even though I was alone, I had a room with 2 queen beds since they... More
