Great view, ugly tub

We arrived at dark and completely overlooked the fact that it was right on the beach! We could see the ocean from our room. The rooms are simple, felt clean except the bathtub was peeling from its last refinish job. Maybe it was only my room. I think it was a good place other than that. Great place for a family on a budget!

Pros: cleannes
Cons: have more help to be more effective on the guest arrival
Location: ok near to the airoport
we had reservations for more than a week and when we got there they tried to give us any room they had ready, not what we had requested, so we had to wait about 45 minutes- not good!!

Affordable Hotel in Kahului

Pros: Clean, quiet, access to a swimming beach.
Cons: The facilities are somewhat 'tired' and aging. Could use some cosmetic upgrades and finishes.
Location: Centrally located in Kahului - easy access to the airport, shopping, and main highways out of town. Clean, modest beach available for swimming, etc.
The Maui Seaside Hotel is an older establishment that was clearly the place to stay before the era of the large hotel chains moved into the islands. It's an older style design with modest accommodations. It's nothing fancy, just simple and practical. It has a nice pool which is well-maintained, and the grounds are also well-maintained . We enjoyed our stay as it was quiet and provided a nice small beach for swimming, sitting and walking. It's inside the harbor area, so the water is calm all the time. They have a terrific restaurant associated with the hotel (Tante's) which serves food at very reasonable prices...again, modest and nothing fancy. We were able to include free breakfasts here with our hotel stay. We enjoyed the location (for our needs) as we were in the middle of Kahului with easy access to the highways leading to Haiku, Kehei, or Lahaina. The airport is only a couple of miles away, and there are useful shopping centers located across and down the main street.

1st Half of a HI Vacation

Pros: The price.
Cons: The list is to long to attempt to write.
Location: 2 dated malls and 1 extremely nice mall, other than that, nothing. Extremely limited restaurant options and no entertainment. Suburban nightmare.
Hotel is sufficient, but by no means nice or great. Near airport and in "central Maui" which means nowhere near anything tourist friendly. Discount websites get you a room in the far building that means no balcony and a view of the used car lot adjacent. No actual onsite food or services. The "restaurant" opens late, closes early and there are no other services. Wifi is free but you need to log in every time you open your phone or laptop. Annoying. Spend $20 more and go to a real hotel if staying outside of the main south beach area.

Not what I expected

Front desk staff was impolite, the rooms were motel quality, the grounds and location were fair-to-good. We canceled our 2nd night there and moved to a different hotel.

Maui North Shore Mid-Century Resort

Pros: The Architecture, the scope of the facilities, and the staff.
Cons: The room interiors need a refresh. The bed was the weakest link in their chain. Two side-by-side double beds do not make a queen.
Location: Great location, classic north shore release from density and great weather.
A wonderful, nicely scaled resort on a North Shore beach cove. A pleasant getaway, and more relaxing than the giant resort experience. The rooms are dated, but the architecture offers quiet elegance. For those who value environmental design, retro-aesthetics and peace, this is the place.

Nice basic room for a short stay

Pros: The staff were very friendly. It was clean and well kept. A convenient location to the airport and major shopping.
Cons: A choice of 2 kinds of pillows - one soft, one firmer. Microwaves in the units.
Location: Located in Kahalui, 1-2 miles from the airport. Lots of shopping available in the area.
We needed a room for one night because we flew in a day before our condo was available. This was the best value we found. It is a nicely kept, pleasant place with a view of the ocean outside on your lanai. The room is small, clean and basic. There is a small frig, but no microwave. The beds were comfortable although I would have liked a little softer or smaller pillow. Next time I'll pick up a cheap one at Walmart for the night. Parking is an extra charge per day. Flying in earlier than our condo check-in day saved us enough on airfare that we will do this again and stay at this motel. It was nice to have a day to shop Costco and Walmart before driving to the other side of the Island.

Central Location!!!

We are a family of 4 and this hotel was perfect if you are planning on doing a lot of sight seeing. It is centrally located and clean, if you are just wanting to sit at the hotel it might not be for you, but we travelled to beaches, waterfalls and much more. Only downfall was the parking at this place, they have a dinner attached to the hotel and it makes it hard to find parking and when you do find a spot they are tight.
