We traveled to maui for 4 nights as part of 10 day honeymoon to hawaii. We went over christmas-new years and it seemed prices were high so we were looking to save some money. This hotel was perfect. I have a nice island like room with a balcony with a water view. The AC worked, shower was warm, the place...

Arrived late, quick check in, Nice Location, Can use the sister hotel for pool etc. Rooms were/had been updated, thou in fairness, still need a little TLC. The Price we payed was fantastic, If u want decent lodging & great price stay here, if u want 5* then stay either @ sister hotel & pay double!!!

I stayed there a couple of nights. Beautiful and spacious room, beautiful green garden, great onsite store and espresso bar. Amazing beach. It's close to other well known properties in Kaanapali and close to the town of Lahaina for great shops and food. I think it is great value and experience.

Amazing place to stay! We got upgraded to Ocean Front which was STUNNING! You're able to use all the resort amenities which is awesome. Felt like we were stayin at a resort but for a hotel price! 10/10 would stay here again.

Cute little beach bungalow just off the beach. We originally stayed at the main hotel of Royal Lahaina 2 1/2 years ago for our honeymoon. And actually enjoyed the view from this room better. Here's a picture of the super moon 2016

Staying at the Ocean Inn is a bit like going to your nanna's house - it's older, slightly run down, the interior furnishings are a bit dated and the room has a slight musty smell, however it's scrupulously clean and very welcoming. Plus the rooms are huge inside and you absolutely cannot fault the location - only metres from the...

We stayed here 7 days and enjoyed every bit of it. Great place for the price. Hotel is being renovated and our room was very nice. Air conditioning was not as cold as it could have been but I was never hot. Very small fridge would have liked a bigger one. Other than that room was very clean and you...

Had a 10 night stay here in early October, 2016. Just a great location. Rooms are very clean and large. Everything you would expect from a motel. Ice machine in the hallway was really handy. Great view especially of the daily sunsets that are just magical that I wasnt expecting from a room on the side of the building. Awesome...

Spent several days in Maui but couldn't get into condo until day 4 so booked KOI through TripAdvisor. Booking was straightforward and even a little less expensive than advertised. Dealing with their booking agency was a surprisingly good experience. Check in was smooth and easy, room was clean and neat. Room was adjacent to their nightly luau area but, despite...

Needed a place to stay in Maui for one night as we were leaving the island the next morning. The hotel was old and outdated. Air conditioning didn't really work. Furniture was old and worn-out. No elevator if you are on a higher floor. I would really consider staying somewhere else if you can. I know I will never stay...
