Days Inn Maui Oceanfront
Travel Blogs from Kihei
Today we traveled to the island of Moloka'i to visit the Kalaupapa National Historic Site. Located on an isolated peninsula on the north side of the island, this area was the site of enforced isolation of sufferers of Hansen's Disease (leprosy). In the mid-1800s, the disease was introduced to the Hawaiian Islands. Unfortunately, the native …
Well, this wasn't the smallest room we've stayed in (that was Honolulu at the beginning of the trip), but it was pretty close. In Maui, it seems like there are three lodging alternatives. First, a rental condo - expensive and usually only by the week. Second, the ultra-resorts - at about $350/day and up. Finally, the limited number of small hotels …
We were up early and off to the airport for an 8:00 flight to Maui. The Big Island was really enjoyable and showed an incredible diversity...Maui and Moloka'i still get a chance, but the Big Island is on the short list to being our favorite Hawaiian island. We managed to do the ballet necessary to get the rental car turned in at an offsite location …
We love Maui! It is such a blessing to spend time here, to enjoy the incredible beauty that God has created! The sunsets, the underwater diversity and beauty, the humpback whales and dolphins, and the amazing water sports, all are truly wonderful.
No matter how often we come here, nor how long we stay, we are always sad to leave. We are also developing ...
... to see the sunset which you can't see from their restaurant and we were done by 6:30. So would what I might do if people really wanted to see it, go for appy's and a drink. There way more restaurants around the Kaanapali area actually every one we've been to so far that are better.
Back home by 8ish a quiet evening from there.
All and all a great day, glad I can say I've done the Road to Hana. I've included lots of pictures for you to enjoy.

We'll go back
My husband and I stayed in May 2003. I agree that the rooms are small, but they are clean and quite. Since we didn't plan on spending much time there, our hotel room was the last thing on our mind while we were in Maui. We had a little problem with our smoke alarm when we first arrived. It took the staff almost 2 days to fix it. The beach was beautiful and only a few steps away from our room. We did get alittle annoyed with the beach hut staff harrassing us every time we passed them but it was also nice to have them for advice and supplies when needed. We were also charged for the in-room safe that we didn't use. I called the manager and he agreed to take the charge off. All in all, it was a good stay, good location, and good price. We'll most likely stay again.
Tiny room with bugs
Smallest hotel room I ever saw, bumped head on wall bending over to tie shoes at bedside. Many cockroaches of various sizes and flying insects too in room. Staff informed and said, "That's what you get in the tropics." However, we never had any bug problems at any other place on Maui. Made me actually glad to go home. The only good thing was the beach, so we might stay next door next time. Definately not a 3-star hotel.

Not too happy
We were not too happy: we had a room on the street side which was extremely noisy, especially in the evenings. Furthermore, the room is not well isolated so we could hear and literally understand conversations next door and even woke up in the middle of the night because of this. If we had not prepaid (without refund option) we would have gone elsewhere.
To top it all off, I got a final surprise in the form of an extra service charge (apparently for a safe box, which actually we did not use at all) of about 1 percent of the total bill. This was subtracted from my credit card afterwards, even though at check-out it was confirmed that everything was paid for. When I called them about this charge there was little sympathy: 'it's our policy'.
I loved this little place. Not sure what we were getting, we booked it because we could get a suite for the same price as a regular room. It was perfect as we each had our own bathroom, tv and everything so when we needed to relax alone, we could. I was perfectly fine with them not having a pool since we sat right on the beach! They have things that you can rent from them for the beach as well. Considering other people paid a lot more and were not even near the beach (they had to walk down the road and across the street to get there) I thought we got the best deal. It is right up the road from a lot of nice restaurants, the rooms were immaculate with new coffee etc. placed out every day. There was a refrigerator in the room for leftovers along with a microwave. The staff was great. When I go back, I will stay there again!! No questions about it.
Maui Oceanfront Inn was an amazing surprise. The rooms were charming with a unique island flair. The beach was everything you see in photos of Hawaii, the water and fish take your breath away. The staff was terrific. Spring for the upgrade and get a suite. It's well worth the money.
Like it, but BE CAREFUL !.
Nice hotel, good staff, but deceptive marketing. Before booking I was told the room has direct access to the beach. It didn't. The room had no patio/balcanoy and access to beach was from the sides. Moreover, there is a BAR/RESTAURANT in the patio of all the Oceanfront suites. And they are their best rooms !. Be careful while booking. They don't tell you about it...Parking is very difficult because of the narrow spaces. This is so they can accomodate restaurant customers. "Additional Parking" is a gravel lot in the rear. Not at all safe. Complained to manager...he is a piece of work...rude, uncaring & was chewing gum all the time that he was talking to me !. The staff is wonderful .....very helpful and polite
Excellent little hotel, the staff were great and the rooms, impecibly clean. Located inches from a GREAT white sand beach we had a great time. I recommend this quaont little boutique hotel to anyone who plans to visit Maui
Great value on the beach
great location right on the beach adjacent to Waliea. Smallish rooms, window a/c units ca be noisy, no pool. Great value for money. Look for discounts.
