We absolutely loved our stay at the Old Wailuku Inn! We felt very safe due to the precautions that the owners and staff have taken due to COVID, such as delivering breakfast in to-go containers every morning. We stayed in the Miulana Room, which is a separate building, and loved having a private deck with views from the second floor. The shower might have been our favorite part - with a handheld, waterfall, plus four additional heads! Tom, Janice, Shelly, and the rest of the staff were very responsive to our questions and requests and made us feel at home! I highly recommend supporting this small, family-owned business and staying at this lovely B&B!

First, for the covid conscious: everything is set up to be contact free: check in, breakfast delivery, and check out. There is a medical gradd air filter running in the room when you arrive, as well as complimentary masks and sani wipes. We took advantage of the cozy BNB nature of the place and spoke with one of the owners a numbr of times. He always kept a respectful distance and made a point of having his mask on. Now, if what you crave is less medical peace of mind, and more of a serene setting to warm your heart this is still a great place for you. The owners are warm, welcoming, and gracious as can be. My wife and i had a bit of jet lag the first morning, so when Tom was dropping off breakfast i cuaught him to say that we might be out early on the next morning- so he didnt have to go to any trouble for us for breakfast. Instead of simply saying okay, he offered to bring us a to-go breakfast the night before to leave in our fridge. Or drop off the normal breakfast earlier if we wanted that instead. Well, as we drove away for the road to Hana, we ate the generous portions of our first breakfast (complete with individual sweet benedictions hand written on top) and could not stop our exclamations about just how delivious it was. Fresh scones and a veggie frittata with orange juice and fruit. We only managed to finish one of them, but it wad so delicious we saved the other for lunch. I could go on and on about how informative, helpful, and lovely our stay was. But i will end with saying if youre staying in the area, and you dont stay here. You're missing out.

Dear Curtis and Abby, Thanks so much for the kind review of your stay. We truly miss our inter action with our guests at the Familial breakfast Table, and now we have to serve our beautiful breakfast presentation in a recyclable paper box. We always wonder how our guests will perceive this and appreciate your feedback on Janice's delicious breakfast presentations, only changed by its humble service vehicle. Thanks again your remarks about the safe way we operate our Inn in these times, you validate our plans to meet the expectations for cleanliness and safety. We hope to see you back on your next trip to Maui. Tom, Janice, Shelly, Lupe and Lola

Tom and Janice made us feel very welcome, lovely hosts. Tom gave us great advice on places to go for dinner and lunch. The room was pretty and spacious. The breakfasts were delicious, something we looked forward to every morning.

I stayed at the Old Wailuku Inn with my husband for nearly a week in March 2019 - it was a beautiful experience and the best place we could have imagined staying as we explored Maui. The hosts are wonderfully welcoming and helpful, and their Inn with its garden has more charm than any of the big hotels. It has the feel of a magically restful retreat that only comes with owners' family love and care that comes from the heart. I couldn't recommend it more. (And go there for the best breakfast on Maui!)

We stayed two nights at the Old Wailuku Inn in March just prior to the pandemic. We felt very welcomed by our hosts, Janice and Tom. The location of the inn is perfect for exploring Maui due to its central location. We were able to drive all over Upcountry and the commute to the airport was short. Our Puakenikeni room #28 in the “cottage” was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The multi-head shower was fabulous! The morning breakfast is delicious and not to be missed. At breakfast, Janice enabled friendly conversations between the guests and checked on our welfare and plans for the day, giving us some excellent touring advice. The main house, to which we had access, had a full-size communal refrigerator, microwave, and free soda and snacks. There was a lovely veranda/sitting area. Even the maids, Yolanda and Julisa were friendly and accommodating. My husband and I had stayed at the Ritz-Carlton with family during the previous week, a luxury hotel with prices to match. The Old Wailuku Inn provided a very different kind of experience, but one that we truly enjoyed! I would certainly recommend the inn to anyone staying in Maui.
