“Great rooms with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Worth every penny to upgrade your room to an ocean view. The size of our room was perfect, comparable to a one bedroom condo unit, plenty for my wife and I. Buy groceries at the local store and cook breakfast in your room every morning... Watch the sun rise.

Be warned, there is no bell boys to help with your luggage, so if you bring a lot of stuff, be prepared to lug it up to your room yourself. The location was at the end of the main drag in Lahaina, which I liked... In walking distance of everything, but set back just enough not to be right in the middle of the strip.

I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to all my friends and family.

Just returned from another week at Lahaina Shores and this was I think our 7th visit. Enjoyed a Premier Ocean View studio this time and it was definitely worth paying a little extra. The Premier units are beautifully modernized and I also definitely recommend a unit on the ocean side so that you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets on the lanai. We also enjoy having our morning coffee sitting out there while watching the early morning paddleboarders, people walking along the beach, and listening to the waves.
This place is so relaxing it is hard to leave but we leave knowing we will be back again next year.
Its the perfect location for walking to many excellent restaurants whether you want to spend a little or a lot. Also enjoyed some snorkelling in the ocean in front of Lahaina shores ... great for beginners as the water is shallow. Can't wait to return!

My wife and I were at this hotel for 5 days. You must choose a sea front view condo. It was so beautiful to take the morning coffee on the balcony and to look at the sunrise every night.
We got a good service and the condo was very clean and comfortable. All restaurants and shops are only 5 minutes walking. You must rent a car because taxis are very expensive. You are able to buy any Luau show or tour directly at the hotel

I stayed here last year and had a beautiful studio, ocean side. This year I booked late without being able to view on internet ahead of time (and for a good reason). This year was mountain view which is not bad, but dirty carpet, stove with element that would fall through, crackling light in bathroom, 40 yr old wallpaper (not exaggerating). Go through VRBO-OWNER OPERATED, not a rental pool that gives you the unwanteds. Staff and grounds are exceptional. Not crowded, beautiful beach right in front. Great for exploring town of Lahaina which is a headache if you have to look for parking.

Room Tip: As above, go through VRBO-owner operated. They generally take pride in their property and it is nice...

We're familiar with different places to stay on this side of Maui. Compared to the big resorts of Kaanapali and Kapalua, at Lahaina Shores we didn't feel crowded. Friendly and helpful staff all-over (front desk, housecleaning, activities desk...), no fighting for space or lounge chairs around the pool like we had in the other resorts, the beach is right outside with surfing and kayaking. We had a beautiful ocean side room with balcony and open kitchen perfect view when cooking and eating! Lahaina isn't huge, everything is within walking distance, the shopping center adjacent has a convenience store and a couple of very nice restaurants. Next time we'll come back here.

My husband and I stayed here for five days during our honeymoon this past June. We booked an studio ocean front room. Prior to our honeymoon, we received emails asking us to upgrade our room, which we opted not to. We arrived to the hotel and were placed on the third floor. We had to pay for parking, so we opted not to get WiFi and used our cell phone instead for internet service. We had a room that had not been remodeled, but that wasn't a huge deal to us. If we were in our room during the day, we were typically on the balcony, enjoying the beautiful scenery. The hotel is in a great location. It was just a short walk to the various stores and restaurants on Front Street. We received fresh towels and bedding each day. The beach was not really a great place to lay out, but it was great for walking along the shore. Overall, no major complaints.

This beautiful Condo resort hotel was such a nice place to stay. Although we ended up with a Parking Lot view room we made the most of it. The hotel was nicely located. It was a short walk from restaurants, stores and attractions. It was a short walk from the Church we attended there

Room Tip: I would suggest travellers choose a south side as they provide a beach view
