We stayed at the Paia Inn for just one night on the way to Hana on Maui. This is a small boutique hotel that just sounded so quaint online that we decided to try it. We got their least expensive room because it was the cheapest, even though it looked quite small in the photo and the hotel itself suggested we might want to upgrade to a slightly larger room. But we figured for one night it didn't matter.....and it didn't! This little hotel was delightful! Paia is a tiny town known for its "hippie", laid back style, and is a tourist draw so it is always very crowded. That was true at the hotel also. I think they only have 6 rooms in total, and very little space to park in back so it is OK to park behind the person who got there before you, and you just give your keys to the person at the desk so they can move the cars around if need be. The room was small but just fine for the two of us. Tiny little bathroom, just big enough for a toilet and shower. Bed was probably just a double but fine for the two of us and VERY comfortable. Little touches everywhere, from the classy furnishings to the paintings on the walls everywhere. Tina, the beautiful young lady at the desk (in the back of the building, not the front) helped us with our bags and made us feel right at home. It is just a short walk out the back of the building down to the beach with its spectacular views of the north shore of Maui and we even saw a whale spout off in the distance. The next morning in the cute little patio out back, the good-looking chef cooked up a great spinach omelette for us before we hit the road for our two day trip to Hana. This hotel is not cheap, but nothing in Paia is cheap, so I would splurge a bit and try this out.

Room Tip: Did not see the other rooms, but I believe ours was the smallest available.

The property is exactly as advertised. The staff are warm and helpful. Our room was truly wonderful, beautifully decorated and clean. My boyfriend loved the AppleTV! Breakfast was amazing. The beach was steps away from our room, down a little pathway. The ocean itself is a bit cold and wavy, so we didn't really get in (we waited until we arrive at the beaches in Kihei and Wailea for some real water time). A great base to do the road to Hana and beat the crowds. An abundance of great shops, terrific restaurants (don't miss Milagros, Cafe Mambo, Paia Fish Market and Flatbread Co.), excellent coffee shops (Paia Coffee Co. just West of PI had the best in town, and we tried all of them) and one of the best health food grocery stores I've ever been too (rivaling those in L.A.), Mana Foods. Paia is a charming Bohemian town and I highly recommend it. Would definitely split my time between here and one of the resorts in West our South Maui to get the best of both worlds.

Room Tip: Splurge for one of the suites, the space is worth it

The Paia Inn is a small location with a lot of personality and a personable staff. The rooms are quiet, comfortable, and have a personality of their own. We've been to Hawaii several times and were looking for a night away from the resort crowds. The Paia Inn was an experience above and beyond what we would have expected. We have stayed in a lot of nice places but this was by far our best. If you are looking for comfort and individualized attention, this is the place to stay. We will be staying at the Paia Inn on all future trips.

Room was very clean, good size and nicely furnished. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beach out the back was beautiful and town is very cool. A short drive to Mama's Fish House, a great place for dinner.

Room Tip: Had a Jr suite (Rm 6)

I was trepidatious initially, coming from the 4 seasons, to this little inn. However, once I arrived in the town of Paia, I was instantly set at ease! This place was amazing. So the downsides first: on a busy street (Hana Hwy), and next to a gas station, which inconveniently a gas odor will occasionally waft over to the hotel. The pros: adorable rooms, GREAT value, FREE/fast Internet (unlike the 4 Seasons I might add), a gorgeous beach with access to a long2-3 mile stretch of beach-- including the most beautiful turqouise waters and really fun/big waves for surfing/swimming etc. I'd say that Paia is more for the adventurous traveller.

The town is a little hippy-ish meets wealth-- there is "lululemon" store just a few feet from perhaps the best organic/co-op grocery store I've been to. The restaurants have great fare-- lots of locally grown, organic health options at a good price. The breakfast at the hotel is delicious.

In general, this is a great inn in a great town! Definitely would come back here, especially if traveling with people that like to hike/swim/surf. This is not the place for you if you want to lay on a beach chair and snap your fingers for a waiter to bring you chair-side cocktails, but if you love beautiful beaches, not too crowded or very developed town in a great-value cozy inn, this is your place.
