I have travelled extensively for business and I have stayed in hundreds of motels, hotels and inns. This is the absolute I have ever seen. I have never seen such filth in one room. I arrived at 9:30 pm on a Saturday night. My first choice was booked up so I asked for suggestions and ended up at The Maikai Inn. The moment I arrived, the innkeeper (whom I have nicknamed "Suzie Saurus") came down the stairs and already had a bad attitude about me and was downright surly as she took my cash payment. Once in the room, I couldn't believe it. The floors looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in weeks. The bathroom had two dead cockroaches on the floor in plain view. The tub had lots of dirt and particles of who knows what in it. And ants everywhere crawling all over the place. I had to agree to read a 10 page book of rules that were beyond strict, they were downright severe. They want you to be quiet as a mouse all day. No phone and no TV in room. Refrigerator with big rust spots and leftover food inside. Smells funny and dust is piled up everywhere. Then to top it off, I was up late out by their seawall (away from all the other units) and I made the fatal mistake of smoking a cigarette and talking on a cell phone. The owner, Suzie, came out in her bathrobe with a flashlight and read me the riot act. I felt like a third grader getting their knuckles rapped by a nun in parochial school. Don't complain about the bugs or dirt, either. Suzie will tell you to take your business elsewhere as she has no need for pesky complainers. Hot water? Available only during certain times of the day so you better plan ahead or it's cold shower for you. Wow- the whole experience at this place was negative in every way from the moment I set foot on the property. The place is cheap for a reason. If you're looking for cheap lodging in Lahaina it's hard to do but after my experience there it reminded me that you always get what you pay for. You can do better than this. STAY AWAY!!!
