Walking Distance to Whalers Village / Restaurants
Posted Aug 26, 2015 on Expedia
Would stay here again for sure (2 adults, no children). Hotel is as pictured, older, but maintained. Im not a big room snob or immaculate cleanliness person so the hotel was just fine for me. Would the Westin/Hyatt/Marriot/etc. be better, of course, for the money, not worth it for me.
Only bad review would be the Molokai Wing rooms with the door between the adjoining room had bad sound proofing. When reviewers say "walls were paper thin"....they are on point for this building (can't say for the other wings, they were larger towers and the Molokai wing was a separate building)! Although our neighbors were loud, it wasn't during late night hours so it didn't affect our sleeping, but was annoying when watching tv/resting during the day from the heat.
We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant (breakfast buffet was $25/person!) but the nearby whalers village food court had a subway, pizza joint, mexican and a filipino/american cafe that was reasonable. The pizza was good and the filipino/american breakfast was not bad as well. I recommend Kimo's in Lahaina for a nice dinner - best clam chowder i've had!!
Skip the ABC stores (they are cheaper than hotel snack shops) and head to Safeway (grocery store) in Lahaina or hit the wal-mart/target about 30 minutes away near the airport area to stock up on gatorade/snacks/water. Walmart has Hawaiian flare tanks/shirts/swim trunks on the cheap too.
