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...

This hotel is the older building of the Royal Lahaina. You are actually part of that hotel in regards to the use all of the property amenities. This building is the beachy cottage compared to a normal hotel suite people may be used to staying at. Was very clean, had everything you would need and located right next to the...

My husband booked this place for our 2 & 1/2 week Honeymoon, he did plenty of research before booking and looked at plenty of places. We both read the reviews on this place, and in the end we decided to go with it because of the reviews about recent renovations and the location; the price was good too. When we...

Hard to beat this place for the price. You wake up and walk on to Kaanapali Beach. Visitors also have access to the pool and facilities of the Royal Lahaina Hotel. Our room had a nice view of the ocean and Molokai. We had a busy, action-packed four day/ four night stay in Maui and were sad to leave this...

I read a few reviews of this place beforehand and wasn't all that sure of what I would find, but this is the place to stay on the west side of the island and possibly on the entire island. It is a small two story building off to the side of the larger Royal Kona Resort. We had a beautiful...
