Kaanapali Ocean Inn
Ranked #30 of 32 Hotels in Lahaina
Reviewed 19 May 2012

It is just a shame that the owners of this property have no regard for it. It is a disgrace to be in this condition in such a lovely area. Location is fabulous but the 'motel' is just pitiful. DH called it the 'bates motel'. Wish we had our $ back. No excuse for this property to not be on par with the surrounding hotels. Two stars is solely for the location. Motel is 40 years old and completely disappointing. Even had to get a refund for the $10 wifi fee because the signal is too weak! Spend a little more and get something decent. Also note, building is three stories and no elevator and walk from parking lot can be a trek.

Room Tip: go to another hotel

Warning pictures are nothing like the actual inn. Bathroom was falling apart there was no water pressure in the shower so it was useless to us. Bed was absolutely horrible you could feel the springs right through the mattress.this place needs to be condemned! On the good note we got the heck out of there the second night and upgraded to the royal lahaina resort....beautiful but much more expensive.

Yes it's cheap and it's on the beach in the west of Maui but it's also a filthy dump. Like other people's hair in your shower? Then stay here. The corridors look like a long stay motel and even the guy who checked us in seemed to feel sorry for us. Don't stay here - find a nice b&b for the same price.

Our room was oceanfront, but it overlooked the luau- not really a bad thing, we were usually in Lahaina, and it was ending when we got home. The first 3 days housekeeping didn't even wash our glasses or coffee cups, but then the staff must have changed, because we had clean cups! The room was run down, but clean. Service at the Royal Lahaina was great, good food in the restaurant with decent prices for Maui! There are two nice pools with a little bar, no icemaker in Ocean Inn, so you have to get your ice from Royal Lahaina-must of the time we just did without! All in all, it was a good value, and I would stay there again. It helped that I read other Tripadvisor reviews, so knew what to expect.

This hotel was perfect for us, its part of a group of hotels next to each other so you get all the "nice" hotel perks without the crazy price. We were upgraded to a new room for free and we loved our stay. This is right on the beach so you can walk right to it from your room. Theres also a great selection of places to eat since youre close to so many hotels. Theres a great one where you can actually eat "on the sand". I would go back here right away and I plan on staying here again the next time we go.

Room Tip: Ask them to upgrade you to the renovated rooms!
