“One step up from a hostel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile

Not sure who gave this place 'excellent' or 'very good'. 'Average' would be generous. It isn't a bed and breakfast and certainly isn't a hotel. If you are used to staying in hostels, then I guess it would be okay. But the pricing is insane. We paid $130 for one night - exactly the same as we got the 4 star Hyatt down the road on Priceline. It has a nice little pool - but a dog was swimming in it when we arrived. Location is okay, a short walk to town. But really...you can do MUCH better than this place for the $$$

We stayed in an upstairs room for two nights. We were required to take the shoes off when entering the house. There was an ordinary interior door to the room and no glass in two windows so you could easily hear what is going on in the stairway and outside. The interior of the room looked a bit shabby. A small lizard was living in the bathroom.
I am not sure about the type of accommodation. It is not a hotel; it is not a B&B (they do not serve any food). The room is cleaned only once a week if you stay longer.
I met a cat in front of our room which might cause problems to allergic people (like me).
The location is quite good. The beach is very close - across two streets. It is about a 15 minutes’ walk to the centre of Lahaina. We had no problems with parking our car at the house.
It was good for an overnight stay - not for longer. You would not pay such money in any other location; but in Lahaina (and Hawaii generally) there is not much choice (especially if you book the accommodation few days before your stay as we did).
However, all the people we met in the house were very friendly and helpful.

We recently spent four miserable nights at the Old Lahaina House. We had the "deluxe"
room, upstairs, adjacent to the chain smoking landlady's lanai, without any windows to shut
the cigarette smoke out, (we used pillows against the louwers to block out some of the smoke). In the middle of the night we heard the rats, eating our two small bags of Famous
Amos chocolate chip cookies!!! We were also charged one extra night, at the rate of $180.34
that took us, with the help of our bank's security divisions help, almost a month to get re-credited to our account.
So our advise, find someplace else to stay. Aloha!

It was not my first time at the Old Lahaina House. I love this place! It is affordable, at a walking distance from downtown. And Sherry, who became a friend, is so sweet! This place is my home away from home on Maui.

Room Tip: My favorite room is the "mountain view" room.

We spent four nights in this nice B&B. The house is located in a quiet place, just south of Lahaina (10mins by walk) and very close to the beach. Sherry is a very nice and helpful host. The rooms are essentials but comfortable with coffee machine and small refrigerator.
This definitely is a great value accommodation and we really enjoyed the stay.

We stayed here on night 2 of our 2 night 3 day tour. We selected this because we wanted to be within walking distance of the Old Lahaina Luau which is .5 miles away and so walking is good since the Luau is all inclusive and the drinks were great but that is another story.

This hotel is more like an old Inn. It is located in the heart of Lahaina about 1/2 block to the beach and all kinds of shopping. We had selected a room with two beds but were upgraded to a beautiful room with king bed with 1930's furniture. The Inn still has lots of natural wood throughout and it gives it a very elegant feeling.
The room was spacious and clean and opened up to a large balcony complete with rocking chairs overlooking the street.
Bathroom and lines were clean and this is what we look for in a budget accommodation.

The Inn is not staffed at night but has security code access. They provide coffee in the lobby in the morning and it is one of the new brew-a-cup type and so the quality of the coffee is great.

The hotel is associated with the Royal Lahaina Resort and so day priviliges of pool, towel, parking and beach access are provided.

The day staff were great and provided as much information as required. This is a little bit of a jewel and a great discovery.

Room Tip: As for something on the front street side.
