... the tank up the side of a wall. My Dad may as well have burned the money in the parking lot. But hey, memories, right? With that in mind, I prepared to jump into the OCEAN with my four year old son. But you know what? For the short amount of time that he was in the water and not freaking out about his mask slipping off or his snorkel filling with water, he loved it. The first thing he did after we went down the slide and into the water was to turn his face down and ...
I grew up believing that Americans were overly patriotic, to the point of being belligerent. However, the more American places I visit I realize that I envy their patriotism. This is a proud day for Americans and they have accomplished much. Duncan, Watson and I talked today about the places we have visited that have left us speechless. Ground Zero, New York for example, Hiroshima for the Garners. The United States has contributed and shaped a lot of history. For this I am ...
... Found a perfect American Diner for lunch/dinner and chose the Loco Moco which is a Hawi’ian dish like a burger without the bun and with rice instead of chips plus 3 fried eggs on top and a brown gravy . Our waiter advised us that one portion would be enough for 2 so that’s what we did, and it was, though we did have a portion of chips to go with it! Very healthy!!

Arrive in Maui around 3:30pm and Paul decides to hire a car from the airport, 45 minute drive to hotel, I'm nervous as all get out for the whole drive, kids are mucking around in the back. I'm about to kill someone (that's if Paul doesn't kill us with the driving first). Finally arrive at hotel. First ...

There's an old Sugar Cane Train that looks like it might be fun for families with kids, but didn't interest us. Otherwise, you'll need to head elsewhere on the Island to do more non-aquatic exploring. I have to say it was a lot of fun sitting on the balcony of our condo rental in Kaanapali and enjoying the setting sun over Lanai, ...

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.
