This hotel is on the grounds of the Royal Lahaina and I really wish we would have tried to upgrade our room. I understand we are in a tropical area and there will be bugs, but I never expected our room to be so infested with them! Pros: air conditioning worked great, clean sheets, staff was pleasant, amenities at the...

We paid a little extra for a room with a view, which was nice. This is the budget facility at a very nice resort. We had full use of the resort, which is on one of the nicest beaches on Maui. Room was large with a lanai. There is no elevator, which was the only negative thing I can say....

We recently spent a week in Maui, Kihei to be exact. We wanted to visit Lahaina and Kaanapali so decided to spend the night. When we were looking at hotels we were amazed at the prices. We found the Kaanapali Ocean Inn for a total price of $185. The Kaanapali Ocean inn is part of the Royal Lahaina resort, you...

The view and location was to die for- it can't be beat. However, the motel was in dire need of renovation as there is great potential. There was a general mustiness in the room, and didn't feel clean to me. I was dismayed to find tiny ants crawling all over the bathroom counter at one point. Housekeeping clearly does not...

This hotel is value for money. Plain and.simple.The rooms are large. Easily accommodate two double beds. I thought it came with 1.bed but sometimes it is nice to have your own bed for a.change. The room also had two chairs a balcony which we could see the ocean from. Beautiful swimming beach. Sure the room smells a little musty but...

Hotel has a brilliant location - on the beach, in a walkable distance from all 5star hotels in Kaanapali and good restaurants (free trolley is also available). It is relatively cheap, but the room requires renovation. Wooden furniture is old and stinks due to humidity and a long history of disinfection, I guess.And ... COCKROACHES! small, but still very unpleasant....

This place is kind of a hidden treasure within the Royal Lahaina Resort. Our room was spacious, clean and lanai. We had a partial ocean view but it was a very good one. There were no trees blocking our view. You have access to the entire resort with no cost to you. It's a tad further than I thought it...

we were booked in for this property but asked to upgrade (with a fee) to the royal lahania and did not regret it. The ocean inn is on the same property and has access to the resort amenities of the royal lahania. Our ocean front room had an amazing view and nice balcony, the bed was nice and room was...

Needed 2 night accommodations before checking into 2 week time share; one of the nastiest hotels we've stayed in Maui. Especially when paying $160/night. Front desk staff indifferent at arrival; told we were upgraded to ocean view - into a room that had odor of dampness & mold. Not placed in high-rise, not placed in cottage, but placed in ghetto...
