“LOVE THIS PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We just spent 4 nights at the Maui Coast, and i was absolutely amazed at how great it was! The hotel had everyting that I could ask for as far as services/amenities. The room was completely updated and very comfortable. I was really impressed by all the little things that they did to make our stay comfortable. The room had a very comfortable bed, a nice lanai with table and chairs, and great maid service.

The biggest draw for me was all the small details that the hotel offered: we had a really nice coffee counter w/packages of coffee, sugar, and creamer (not the plastic packages found in other resorts) and they had real coffee mugs (not the cheap cardboard ones in other resorts); there was also a refrigerator under the cabinet and a microwave (which the the high-end resorts do not offer); the bathroom was beautiful and had a lot of extras such as large dispensers with shampoo, conditioner, and bathwash mounted right in the shower (not the little bottle sitting on the countertop that the supposed "high-end" resorts offer). there was a jar with cotton balls and q-tips on the counter, and always plenty of fresh, clean towels. we also had a bed that was so comfortable that I did not want to get out of it! LOTS of pillows, and very soft, comfortable sheets.

the pool area was amazing. yes, it is a smaller pool, but that is typical of hawaiian resorts. there was a hot tub attached to the pool and another one separately in a little grotto w/tropical fauna all around. they have a pool-side bar/restaurant which served great food, and they also deliver to the pool if you don't want to leave the comfort of your pool chair. there was plenty of sun and shade, whichever you desire, and nice refreshing water to dip into when you get too hot.

The only negative of this resort is that it is not oceanfront. however, the best beach in Kihei is only one block away (Kam I). The hotel also offers free bicycles if you want to venture farther south to the other beautiful beaches of Kam II and Kam III. IMO, the beach of kam I is the best, and it is right across the street (only 1 block away), very easy to walk to. The best hawaiian convenience store (ABC Store) is right across the street from the beach, so you can easily get everything you need for your day at the beach (drinks, food, ice, etc.).

With all this being said, I definitely recommend the Maui Coast Hotel to anyone planning on staying in Kihei. btw, kihei is really fun, eclectic beach community. it is not in any way "high-end", and that is why it is so much fun to stay there. If you're looking for kiss-your-butt amenites, turn-down service, and fancy ppl, then Kihei is not for you. If you are looking for a great family-oriented, fun couples retreat, then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: None of the rooms are truly oceanview, so just book cheap.

Known as a business hotel, I was curious about this place. I was happy to find that it has a wonderful atmosphere and comfortable amenities. My family enjoyed the junior suite with two queen beds, a wet bar with micro and refrigerator. We also requested a crib for my two year old son. The beds are comfortable, although they seem small like doubles. The bathroom is roomy and I love their DEEP tub, great for soaking. My kids loved the pool, they have a one foot wading pool and a hot tub side. The water was very warm and comfortable, the pool was no deeper than five feet.

We received two bottles of water daily and a local newspaper, which was nice. The TV has many channels all in HD! The location is central in Kihei, close to many eateries and shops. Try Shakas Pizza, great cheesesteaks and New York style pizza.

Loved the stay...will be coming back!

I was gladly surprised by this hotel: their installations are gorgeous, the location is excellent, very comfortable and nice staff. The most surprising was the price we got this deal. It is a gem and if you are on a budget while in Maui, you should definitely check-in there

Reasonably priced for a Maui hotel. Not beachfront but it has a great swimming pool and is very family friendly. Helpful staff, and like much of Maui it's very Canada-friendly (you'll run into Canadians constantly while in Maui). Not a big fan of Maui, since it is nowhere as interesting a place as Oahu and frankly you can be in in Maui for weeks and never realize that there should be more Native Hawaiians somewhere, and so if you don't feel that something is amiss you probably should know more about the colonization of the Hawaiian islands and realize that the lack of any Native Hawaiians in places like Kihei and Wailea is a horrible example of the displacement of Native Hawaiians and the exploitation of their land and resources. But if you're there for vacation and want to just enjoy the beach and sunsets, this probably won't be a problem for you, but it's probably something you should keep in mind...

We chose this hotel based on reviews by other trip advisor travelers and were not disappointed. This hotel is across the street from the beach and offers spacious updated rooms with complimentary tennis, bicycles, laundry self service, parking and wireless internet. We rented beach chairs from the gift shop for $3.50 a day and they were nice Panama Jack chairs with backpack straps and a small attached cooler compartment. Also, front desk supplies complimentary beach and pool towels. Pool was nice and well-kept and never crowded. Great location near many choices of restaurants and shopping. Walking distance to ABC store and lots of choices for food. The hotel also is the choice for many airlines' flight crews. We had a junior suite with 2 queen beds. Beds were very comfy and bathroom large with all the amenities. There was a small kitchen counter with mini fridge, sink and coffeemaker. Room also had small safe and iron and ironing board. I would stay here again in a minute and would highly recommend it.

Thanks to everyone here for such helpful reviews - this is how we chose this property which was perfect for our family. "Nice, upscale" but not ostentatious. We felt it provided excellent value (especially with the "4th night free" discount on room rate - but not resort fee) on an island where prices can be quite high. Good location - no, not ON the beach, but so very close to several wonderful beaches. Bike loan program was fun (included in resort fee, from sunrise to sunset; helmets available). Spacious rooms, some with decent (mostly "Partial") views of the ocean from balcony. We thought our room on the 5th floor south side (facing another property, not the parking lot, approximately mid-way) was a nice location. Room clean, nice to have fridge and microwave for meals in the room. Laundry use included in resort fee - very handy. While I usually don't like the idea of a resort fee added, at least this was clearly stated and the included items were of value to us. Pool small, but cute, not crowded when we were there. Just ask for pool towels at the front desk when you need them. Julie at front desk was noticeably helpful and pleasant, but all staff members were friendly, professional. Concierge and bell hop available (luggage carts with bell staff only). Most parking spots were quite small - might want to decline any upgrades to a monster SUV at the rental car counter. Parking spots facing the hotel seemed a little bigger. Would definitely stay here again!
