“Great location with pool and beach right there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was a nice hotel with a fabulous view from the back side of the hotel. There was a charming balcony that overlooked the ocean and the pool and the wonderfully groomed lawn.
The lobby is spacious and inviting. It is easy to relax in this hotel because it is a low key place.
It's quite close to town which has some good restaurants, a bakery, and some shops.We enjoying walking to town and seeing this amazing tree and shopping and dining. We loved the balcony with a view of the sunset. If you want a beach barbecue there is a place right next to the hotel. Easy to walk on the beach or swim. The ocean is about 10 seconds away from the lobby. Quiet get-away kind of place. Not too fancy but a pleasant location with good staff. Close to other beach locations. I would love to go back there and sit on the balcony and soak in the sun the ocean air. Must get a beach view!

Room Tip: Make sure you pick an ocean view room to see the sunset and passing ships. It would be a shame to l...

We booked our stay at Lahaina Shores through Hotels.com because we had about $600 in credits and wanted to get the nicest room we could. Boy did we get lucky--we had an Oceanfront Premier Studio on the 6th floor that completely exceeded our expectations. The room was very tastefully done and renovated. Also, a great kitchen (most of which we didn't use because we didn't do any cooking--but could have easily made all our meals there, with the range, oven, microwave, frig, dishwasher, pots & pans, flatware, barware, etc. etc). Nice comfy king bed, big bathroom, lanai--no complaints at all about the room.

The view was unreal. Don't skimp--get yourself an ocean view. It's right on the water--there's a little beach (mostly for strolling), so there's nothing impeding your view. There's not a lot of foot traffic at that end of Lahaina so it really feels much more remote than it is. Lana'i and Kaho'olawe in the distance. Great sunsets, too. Go as high up in the building (7 floors) as you can so you can get nothing but ocean in the view from your bed. The sound of water fills your room--really can't be beat.

The hotel is adjacent to the Shops at 505, which is a nice little mall with a few restaurants, galleries, and the Feast at Lele, the high-end luau on Maui. Which is great, because you can hear its sounds every night between 7-9 pm. Just enough to be cool and not too loud to be annoying.

The staff at the hotel are great--kept our room nice, answered all of our questions, held onto our room key during the days, etc. Very happy with the service.

Just a thought--we spent most of our days out and about doing Maui. Snorkeling, boating, hiking, Hana, Haleakala, etc. Lahaina was advantageous for us because we didn't want to have to drive at night, knowing we'd be beat every day. Staying at Lahaina Shores opened up our evenings and made them painless. There are more than enough restaurant/bar options within a 10-minute walk (and, as mentioned, some directly adjacent to the hotel) that we felt we didn't have to sacrifice anything.

There's no real amenities in this resort, but we didn't want to experience Maui from the lobby or pool of a hotel--you can do that anywhere. If you want to get out and about during the days, staying in Lahaina at the Lahaina Shores might be a great option for you. And waking up/coming home to the ocean view (again, make this happen if you stay there), made our trip.

Room Tip: OCEAN VIEW IS ESSENTIAL. Also, try to get 5th, 6th, or 7th floor to be above the palm trees for a c...

We have just booked our 4th visit to Lahaina Shores. During our first visit we were not sure how we would like staying in Lahaina. Once there we fell in love with the location. We could relax in our room, lounge on the beach just outside the hotel, or walk to town for dinner and any other entertainment. The studio room with full kitchen worked out just great for us to eat in or make snacks. We first had an unrenovated Mtn. view room which was comfortable and clean. Next visit we were bumped up to one of their newly renovated ocean side rooms (this was before they called them "Premier" rooms". Loved it and spluged for a Premier Mtn. view room on our last visit. Which is what we have just booked. We recommend this to anyone who is looking for a relaxing place to stay without having to go up north at the larger resorts.

This last Feb. we celebrated our 50th anniversary on Maui and stayed at Lahaina Shores.
The staff was warm and friendly during our stay.
WOW you walk out the doors off the lobby and there is the pool and grassy area with loads of chairs under the palm trees and straight ahead is the beach and bay with views of Lanai.
Wonderful ocean breeze cool pool water and warm ocean what more could one want oh yes walking distance to Front street Banyon Tree and access to the daily excursions, the art galleries and all the shops and fine eating establishments. We even walked to mass on Sunday morning.
Our room was clean and quite comfortable and waking every morning to the clouds and mist descending from the West Maui Mountains with our coffee and the sunsets in the evening around the pool. Shopping and eating right next door and very reasonable rates made this memory magical and we are planning a return this next Feb. and are going to stay at Lahaina Shores as it is not a big resort with all the commotion. ALOHA Lahaina Shores A HUI HOU

Cannot say enough good things about this property! I found it by chance and loved everything about it. For starters if u are looking for a ritz then by all means go to a ritz but if u want a clean room, amazing views, and friendly staff this is the place. EVERYTHING is in walking distance to the town of Lahaina. Even went to Church on a Sunday morning with the locals. I have been to Oahu and Kauai as well but Maui has always been my favorite. This is a keeper. enjoy and aloha!

Room Tip: splurge and get the ocean view.. however if ur budget fits the mountain it is still good too!

We booked last minute for 5 nights in unit 604 mountain view. Recently remodeled, nicely done. Has a long comfy sofa, Murphy bed with a comfortable mattress and nice kitchen (although we only used it for making simple breakfast, reheating leftovers and keeping beverages cold). Bath has a deep tub if you like a hot bubble bath at the end of the day. Staff was curtious and keep the facility spotless. On arrival we asked about getting an ocean view and they offered to move us for the last two nights but after seeing the mountain view and watching the sunrise the first morning we chose not to move. It was perfect! Great view of Lahaina because you're above the trees. We spent all day in or near the ocean and got plenty of great pictures of it so we didn't feel deprived. We'd return for sure.

Be advised that the rooms are privately owned and vary in their state of upkeep. Ours was exactly what we wanted: a good price for a room that was not fully updated but very adequate and clean. If you pay more, of course you can get a fully updated room. No matter what room you are staying in, you walk past well maintained grounds into a nice, updated lobby. The hotel location is awesome- next to a convenience store and within walking distance of all the downtown shops, bars and restaurants. We found the bar next door, Spanky's Riptide, to be one of our favorites in Lahaina, with reasonable prices on food and drinks. If you like having a quaint little bar, where locals go, next door to your hotel, this is the place for you! In general, this area is less touristy than K'Aanapali and downtown Lahiana. The only feedback I have for the hotel is that the (outside) hot tub is pretty small for a hotel this size.
