Maui Seaside Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Kahului
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Stayed one night after a late flight into Maui. We had a full kitchen, a second floor balcony, best breakfast next door at Tante's Restaurant which was included in our rate and the bedroom was separate from the rest of the set up.
There is limited parking but after we dropped our bags it was a one minute walk back to the hotel from the auxiliary lot.
The hotel was probably 50 years old but perfectly maintained. I loved the beach right out the door however, its in an industrial side of the island so I wouldn't swim. The outdoor pool was inviting though.
I wish this hotel was on Kaanapali or further west since the old charm, great reception from the staff and convenience to an affordably priced restaurant made this my favorite night of the entire week I was on the island

This beach front hotel that looks like a motel is real bargain and boasts a great location. The rooms are comfy and spacious. You can lounge at their court yard central pool or walk easily to the largest mall on the island. Wonderful place to spend an overnight while intransitive to or from the airport,only 2 miles away.

Room Tip: Ask for a west facing court side room.

We stayed here because nothing was available in our price range 4 months prior to our trip . This hotel is small , outdated but still has an ocean view, close to airport. Also close to loading dock, tugboats , motorcycles and road noise . 5 steps from the ocean but not a view of sunset or sunrise . Breakfast came w our rate & that was good. Staff was helpful in finding us a room w a king bed not 2 queens ( it was our honeymoon & we asked for a king but were given a second floor room in the tower building behind the pool view rooms - not pretty at all! Overlooks the cruise ship dock ) you will need a rental car to go see the beautiful beaches in Maui or take the bus. Still, it is Maui & it is beautiful here! Book the hotel or b n b or time share you really want at least 6 or more months ahead ! Good luck & Aloha!!!

I just completed my 3rd stay at the Maui Seaside hotel in the past year. The hotel is nothing fancy, but it is clean and the staff is friendly. Our room had air conditioning and a ceiling fan which kept it comfortable. The hotel sits right on the coast and has access to a sandy beach which we enjoyed walking on in the evenings. They have a nice pool which was a bit on the cold side. Their open air lobby offers 2 apple computers for guest use. My only complaint is the parking situation. They do charge $5/day for parking, and the lot is always full and it can be hard to find a parking space later in the evening. This was my 3rd stay here and I will stay here again in the future. Overall I would recommend this hotel as a reasonably priced option for budget minded travelers!

We had a very pleasant stay in this hotel. Very friendly staff at the reception and in the restaurant. The room was clean and we were happy with the free breakfast. There was even a surprise birthday cake for our son who came over from another accommodation to join us for breakfast. A very good place to stay and we would book this hotel again on another occassion!

My wife and I stayed at the maui Seaside for a 1-night stopover on the way to Hilo. It had a "motel" feel to it (as opposed to a resort hotel), but was well-maintained, and the rooms surrounded a large grassy area and pool. It also has a beach.
It was just an $11 cab fare from the airport (I note that another review said they offer free shuttle service). The included breakfast was fine, in their own restaurant.
We would not have chosen this as a destination hotel, but it was clear that many (mostly families) did, and no doubt enjoyed their stay.
The location, while close to the airport (and malls with shopping) is in an area looking no different (nor more interesting) than a similar location in any American town.
For us, great for a quick overnight stay - but not more than that.

This hotel is set near the Airport and very easy to find. While the outer buildings show some age, the room itself was large and bright. We had an Ocean view/Mountain view and it was perfect. The rear of the hotel is on the water and the view is great. Hotel is well run, kept clean and the staff is very friendly. I am glad I chose this place to stay...it is a true gem.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view, overlooks the mountains and the water.
