Days Inn Maui Oceanfront
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Kihei
Reviewed July 21, 2013

The Pros:
Everyone was very nice and helpful. A special thanks to Vi Carnate and the other front desk associates who always had a smile and time for us.
Comfortable bed. Right on the beach. Good price.
The Cons:
The blinds were all broken so they wouldn't close. We hung clothes for privacy.
The bathroom has no electrical outlets. Also no vents so gets hot.
The television was small, old and had bad picture and reception.
The A/C is a window unit which is loud.
Would have been nice to have a swimming pool.

Aloha! We love this little gem. Not for snotty people. Temper-pedic Mattresses - Mini Fridge, small rooms, but clean. The price is unbeatable! If you want a value get-away for 1/2 price just for cleaning up / sleeping / place to keep your stuff safe / right on the BEACH / With the best breakfast joint next door, (Sarento's) - then, this is it!

Room Tip: There are 2 - VERY important things to remember: #1) DO NOT RENT THE BEACH FRONT UNITS (too noisy...

We stayed here for 7 nights and we loved Days Inn! The price is really low for what you get.
Located at the beach, bus stop a cross the street, and a 10 minute walk from restaurants and supermarket. (try the food and Margarita's at Fred's!!!)

The room is really nice, confident and clean. Not really big, but you'll only sleep in your room. There's a laundry and free wi-fi! Breakfast is not included but you'll find a small supermarket at the beach.

I could definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who would like to visit Maui and is looking for the best place to stay! Next visit on Maui, Days Inn will be my place to stay again....

It's not a resort, it's a former Best Western. Once you have that mindset, the MOI is the best thing going in South Maui.

This was our second stay at the MOI and we found things improved. Apparently there are new owners for the complex since a bankruptcy in 2012. The new owners seem very diligent about keeping things clean. Keep in mind the buildings and furnishings are dated, as are many properties in Kihei.

The rooms are tiny but clean. There's just enough space for 2 people to sleep, shower and rest up for another day of adventure. The TV's are not updated but we did not come to Maui to watch TV, did we? Tempurpedic beds in every room are a win for a good night's sleep. Contrary to the resort's website and other reviews, there is now free wifi in all buildings.

Room 227 on the second floor was just fine. The second floor puts you away from the walkways. The second floor units have a walkway/balcony that is shared by only two rooms, so hardly anyone ever walks by. That room is also on the northern part of the building, away from Sarentos and the main parking lot. It even had a peek view of the ocean. I counted 98 steps to the edge of the water on Keawakapu Beach, which is a great beach.

Initially we had booked the "Oceanfront Suite", which is just a combination of rooms 201 and 202. Our goal was to have the beachfront view and balcony. We were well aware of the patio below being used by Sarento's - not a problem. What we did not expect was the lack of furnishings in the front room. There were two small tables with two dining chairs and one rattan chair. Once we moved the dining chairs and a table to the balcony, there was just the rattan chair and table in the front room - making it a very unfriendly place to hang out. We we asked the manager, she told us the couch had been broken and not yet replaced. We decided the suite was not worth the extra $500 over a week and moved to the regular room.

We only parked once in the main lot to avoid its tight spaces. The public dirt lot for the beach on the north side of the building always has plenty of space. There are two convenient paved paths to access the motel.

There's a lot of convenient stuff around MOI:

• Keawakapu Beach is one of the better beaches in South Maui

• We have never been to Sarento's. There's just something about the vibe there that doesn't fit. People do seem to like it.

• The Five Palms at Mana Kai is a 60 second walk from MOI. Great location with fabulous views. There are few places in South Maui closer to the water. Standard dinner rates are not within our budget. We frequented the 3-7pm happy hours with some 1/2 price lupus. It was easy to build a dinner for 2 with 2 drinks for about $40. Meals (not happy hour) are 20% off for MOI guests. That made breakfast prices reasonable, but not cheap. It was also very good.

• The Surf Shack at the Mana Kai had reasonable rental rates for boogie boards, SUPS and such. It was super convenient for us. One thing we did that worked nicely....boogie board rental was $7 for a day. If you rented around noon one day, you could use the board all afternoon and evening the first day and then again the next morning until noon. It was more like 2 days for $7.

• Zacks Deli and market at the Mana Kai has deli items and snacks and beverages that are quite reasonably priced for beachfront. Get a slice of cake (big enough for 2) and and enjoy beachfront dessert for much cheaper than any resort.

Unless somebody fancifies things too much and increases the rates a lot, we will definitely come back to the MOI.

Room Tip: Second floor, north side rooms for more quiet.
