We stayed at the Maui Beach Hotel for one night, 23 April 2012 before catching our flight at Kahului.
Our room was spacious and included a fridge, but no coffee maker. Unusually the room had both an air conditioner and WINDOWS THAT OPENED on to the attractive garden area below. Nice not to spend the night listening to a noisy air conditioner. The temperature on Maui is normally very pleasant day and night anyway and the fresh air was very welcome. Since our window faced the garden at the back of the hotel we also did not hear any traffic noise. There is a smallish pool adjoining the restaurant where breakfast is served.
The hotel is indeed on a beach, but a very small one, and it is on a harbour a couple of miles from port facitlities. It is further from the airport than I had expected - more like 3 miles than one, so it would be too far to walk with a suitcase. However, they have an efficient airport shuttle service in both directions so that is no problem. We had to walk about half a mile to one of the malls to find a restaurant for dinner since we arrived shortly before 9 p.m.
I would certainly recommend this hotel for a very nice overnight stopover. But for the experience of a Maui beach holiday this is not the place to stay. One should go to one of the hotels on the beautiful west coast beaches. However before booking at the Days Inn Kihei (as recommended by another reviewer) be sure to check out the reviews on Tripadvisor. Our room at the Maui Beach Hotel was about 4 times as large as those at Days Inn, and our view was better.
