We arrived, but were not greeted. however, instructions and keys were available. the inn is quite clean. shared bathrooms, no upstairs shower, no amenities such as soap, shampoo etc. Fruit and cereals available. The setting is on the main highway to Hana, and highway noise is significant.

They loaned us a fishing pole for my 12 year old! The Inn is on a busy street but if you have the fans going upstairs this cuts the noise...

My wife and I stayed here on the last 3 days of our vacation. After a week in Kihei it was nice to experience the north of the island. The inn is a nicely renovated old house, squeaky floors and all!
