“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

First time in Maui and really liked the resort. Great location - close to shops and highway. Very clean and safe. Only complaint would be lack of coffee or snacks onsite. Betty's next door does not offer breakfast until 8am. Oceanfront unit is worth the upgrade, premium includes parking and wifi as well.

We have stayed here multiple times on each of our trips to Maui. The resort is composed of condos with a central management. You can rent through central management, or you can find individually owned condos for rent through sites like Vacation Rental By Owner (VRBO). We have found cheaper prices that way. The condos that face the ocean are slightly more expensive to rent than those with a mountain or inland view, but we love seeing all the greenery on the mountain side. The resort is just 1.5 short blocks from Lahaina's city center, and is very close to everything. The pool is well kept, and there are lounge chairs outside for sunning on the grassy lawn. You can walk right out the back door onto the beach. Next to the resort is a outdoor mall-type place with several restaurants. The location, quality, and price of this find ensure that we will be coming back again and again.

Room Tip: Ground floor condos are convenient as you can walk outside, but have more foot traffic go by from th...

1st time in Maui.
This is a nice property. People at the desk were nice.
Very well kept. Nice room layout with small kitchen. Kitchen had all necessary items such as plates,utensils, glasses, pans should you decided to eat in.
If you can get an ocean view room, do it. Great to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view, without leaving the room.
Walking distance to Front Street shopping area is great.
Many restaurants are also walking distance.
Went with friends were able to get together and comfortably socialize (6 total people) in one room.

Only complaint is that the pool and spa has way too much chlorine. Stayed for 1 week but only used the pool and spa once.

If you decide to do a tour, by all means go to the travel desk. They are very helpful.

Room Tip: I would avoid ocean view rooms near the spa. For noise factor. Some guest want to stay there late...

We stayed at Lahaina Shores Beach Resort five years ago and returned this year, Jan. 22-30. We were pleasantly surprised to see the nice renovations in the lobby, grounds, and our studio unit this time around (Room 209). This unit has beautiful granite and tile countertops in the kitchen and bath, as well as other up-to-date furnishings. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The ocean view from the lanai, although partially blocked by a tree, provided enjoyable viewing of the ocean, beach, and passing whales. The resort is within easy walking distance to Front Street with its many attractions --the waterfront, shops, and restaurants (my husband preferred Moose McGillycuddy's on Front, and I liked Pelle Pasta on Front & Dickenson).

My one complaint is that the resort charges extra for parking and internet access, which comes across as rather cheap and petty. How much better PR it would be to simply up the daily rate by $20, then advertise as "FREE parking and internet!"

Overall, I would recommend Lahaina Shores Beach Resort.

Came to Maui this year for the whales and the February "Whale Tales" event at the Maui Theatre (home of 'Ulalena) in Lahaina. Lahaina Shores was the perfect place to stay without a car, being so accessible to the harbor and Lahaina Town. The second floor studio was clean and well appointed and offered a gorgeous view of Lana'i sunsets and spouting whales. The bed was more comfortable than home. All of the staff were friendly and eager to be of service. A special entrance to the Shops at 505 provided the convenience of shopping for snacks or necessities at Whaler's General Store as well as casual eating or fine dining. And one could enjoy the music of the next door Feast at Lele on stay-at-home evenings. Lahaina Shores captures the charm of Olde Lahaina while providing a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: The ocean view is worth the extra

We stayed in 2 different units-1 Oceanview Penthouse Unit with very outdated furnishings and were moved to a a Poolside Downstairs Unit which had been nicely upgraded. The Penthouse unit had a beautiful view, but the furnishings looked like they came from Goodwill, the tile was chipped and dirty, the carpeting was stained and the appliances were very outdated. It is worth the extra cost to stay in an upgraded unit. We have stayed at the Marriott Wailea, Grand Wailea, Hyatt Kaanapali, Marriott Kaanapali, Westin Kaanapali and in a Kihei Condo. For the money, the Premier Accommodations were the best value. If you are considering staying in another Lahaina Shores unit, I would not book without receiving photos. Since we are local it was not a huge deal staying in the worn out penthouse unit, but if I was on my honeymoon or if this was supposed to be a trip of a lifetime, I would have been very upset and would have moved to another hotel.

Room Tip: Do not book without getting photos of the unit you are going to be staying. The quality varies DRA...

We stayed in a recently remodeled "studio" on the third floor. It had a full kitchen with all the needed equipment for a short stay. We were on the "skinny" and needed a place to be able to cook most of our meals for two days. The room was large enough to accomidate three and we had the ocean view lani which always kept us on the look out for whales and allowed seating for meals.
The grounds were well kept and any noise was "wisked" away from the sound of the ocean.
I would visit Lahaina Shores again with every" breach" (whale speak).
A speacial thank you to Chester at guest services. We had been in another part of the island and had food that needed refrigeration. We arrived prior to check in time but our food was sent up to our room and cold and ready when we re-arrive.

Room Tip: Ocean view is the best.
