“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

This was our first stop from a long trip from Australia.
The good - location. Right on the beach with a nice view of the mountain. The lobby is airy and spacious. They provide a shuttle from the airport, which is not far away. The shuttle driver was very helpful and gave us great tips on where to eat.
The rooms were clean and the beds VERY comfortable.
There is a shopping centre across the road where we found a good variety of shops and a great Mexican restaurant to eat at.

The bad - the breakfast was average, especially for the price. It would have been nice to have some cereal and a greater variety of fruits. The restaurant is open only once a week.
The A/C in our room did not work, so we had to be moved. The next room was much better, so it turned out OK.
The carpets and walls in the corridors are dirty and could do with a revamp.

Overall, it was a good place to get over jetlag but I wouldn't stay long term.

Room Tip: We ended up in a downstairs room on the corner near the road, which turned out to be a bigger room a...

This hotel is perfect for those who know they are not going to be there much. My husband & I are divers, back road jeep drivers.. We want to be anywhere but where the tourists are ... We wanted a Maui adventure on a low budget .. The rooms where very clean, basic, no thrills..staff was very friendly & helpful.. No sign of any bugs or crazy things I read in other reviews.. There is a beach front and a nice plush lawn to walk out to it... I would have let my children swim there had they come but there are certainly better beaches a short drive away. Kahului is a nice area with a mall, nice shops & a Starbucks just two minutes up the road...centrally located which is perfect for those who want to explore the whole island. I was actually very happy we stayed centrally.. Lahaina is the touristy area about an hour drive, maleaka summit 1-1/2 hr... cool hippy town of Paia 15 min ... Hana 2hrs... every drive around the island is beautiful;
Our room was second floor 234.. We did not have an ocean view we backed up to a highway & some beautiful mountains ... I hope this helps those of you on the fence.. I would definitely stay there again...~ Be Aloha! :)

I only stayed in this room for 2 nights. When I was washing my hands I noticed ants crawling all over the counter. I brought it to the maid's attention and she said it must've been from the stuff that my boyfriend brought over from his house. The water pressure in the shower was so low that it didn't even rinse the shampoo out of my hair, i had to put my head under the faucet and run the water as if i were going to take a bath (which by the way was very uncomfortable, i'm not 5 anymore and it's not that easy to put my head that low, the faucet was really low)...also, the hotel advertises a "free shuttle service from 6am to 9pm that will take you anywhere within a 5 mile radius of the hotel". When i arrived at kahului airport, a very helpful woman at the alamo rentacar counter explained that i would have to call the hotel to get them to come and pick me up, which i did and the lady on the phone said "i'll send my shuttle driver right away" and it took almost 45 minutes for him to get there...then i found out that the airport is only 2 miles away from the hotel and should've only taken 10-15 minutes at the most...the next day i wanted to go to a natural food store that was too far for walking distance so i asked if the shuttle driver would take me and he gave me attitude, wound up taking me and then when i was done eating (about an hour or so later) i called to get picked back up and the lady on the phone was extremely rude to me and said i was going to have to wait because he was on a different run and it would be about 30 minutes and it took him almost an hour and 30 minutes to get there...then today when i wanted to leave the hotel to go to the airport the lady at the front desk said "do you have a reservation with the shuttle?" i said "excuse me? i wasn't aware i had to make a reservation"...and she said oh well it's gonna be about a 30 minute wait because he's on a long run right now...so i said ok and he was actually there within 30 minutes that time, but the people were just not very customer friendly and were not very helpful...if it weren't for my boyfriend who has lived there his whole life showing me around i wouldn't have seen half the stuff because anytime i would ask them where something was they would look at me like i was totally stupid...so next time i am definitely not staying at that hotel, not to mention it was $150 a night for the bare minimum...and breakfast is $13 per person...you would think for that much money a night the least they can do is include free breakfast...

We were excited when getting to OGG airport. A very nice friendly shuttle driver drove us to hotel. Then we encountered the no smile, no personality receptionist . Being friendly and having a smile costs nothing for a person to do , but goes a long way for a customer. Remember that yours is a tourist industry, and people talk and reviews are made over guest experiences. Sorry to have to be blatant, but maybe these frontline workers should be answering phones in a back room where they don't have to deal with people face to face :)

The location is pretty central which is great, very close to OGG, and close to Hana Hwy, and fairly priced/affordable (paid ~95). The bed itself was very comfortable.

On the negative side, there were quite a few tiny ants in the room, the elevator was out of service for a portion of our stay, and the air conditioning was extremely loud. We had to turn it off to get some sleep, which wasn't a huge deal since we went there in January, but still the room got pretty warm by the next morning. The bathroom and shower are tiny/cramped/old.

nicely located, but we were expecting far more from the service. the only thing we're satisfied with are the porters! the staff at the reception are rather indifferent, the breakfast was a disappointment, the last day we found there was an International House of Pancakes at the Maui Mall a few blocks down, so we went there. I still suffer for the dollars we spent at the hotel. It's as if they couldn't care less for giving us directions for e.g., the bus station, the bank etc. The room was okay, the said they upgraded us for free, and we got a room with no windows (initially, I wondered how bad could have been the original room we got! then we realised only few rooms had a balcony), the pool is like a bath tub. The air-condition will give you a headache

Room Tip: ask for one with a balcony, otherwise there is no way for you to dry your towels and bathing suits
