“Clean, Cozy, Comfortable,”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We recently stayed at the Maui Seaside for 8 nights. We selected the hotel based on a stopover we had in Maui a few years ago. We liked the look from the beach. We were right on our hunch... It's a well run business...staff everywhere keeping it clean. Front desk staff always willing to help you. All maintenance people, housekeeping staff, etc. very friendly. If you're expecting a resort atmosphere with a bar by the pool, this is not the place to come to. The pool opens at 9am and closes at 6pm. It means that those rooms overlooking the pool have some quiet time which is a good thing. Our room was away from the pool area and was also quiet and clean. New carpets had just been laid in all the rooms on the second floor of the "tower". There is always someone tidying, cleaning, upgrading, around the premises. From Maui Seaside's central (and great) location, you can get to the mall easily by walking or rent a car and travel around the island. The rooms that are just booked for a stop over and are the cheapest rooms are very small. We paid extra and got a deluxe room which was very roomy. The price included breakfast each day at the adjoining Tante's restaurant. The meals were generous portions and tasty. The staff at Tante's are super friendly and attentive.

Room Tip: We got a deluxe room in the "tower", it had a bit of a view of the water and the park. Ju...

I thought the rooms were fine! May be dated, but they were in great shape and super clean, we're not talking bugs or bullet holes here. For gosh sakes, do you need granite tops and the newest headboard? I have looked thru VRBO, if you are not staying a week, it is really hard to get an "up-to-date" place. We had the mid-price room, called the garden room. There was a small stretch of grass, the sidewalk and our balcony/patio with 2 chairs and table. And a palm tree. Step out the door and there was a great view of the bay. There was a flat screen attached to the wall, but larger is always nicer. You had to go on the street to get to neighboring beach, But it was very close. Pool is nice, clean. Okay, no bar guy. Rooms are incredibly clean, folks are more than helpful. Bed was clean and comfy. I had a kama'aina rate of $109. It is so centrally located you could take day trips from here and stay your whole time at this spot. But if you want to stay in one location, have more than one pool to pick from and a guy or girl to bring you drinks, then spend the extra $200+ a night.

Room Tip: Poolside is always good, and closer to bayfront

This place is the best place to stay! The smiles and friendliness of the ladies is unsurpassed. They are always willing to help and they always wear a bright smile. The ladies do their best to help out at all times.

Room Tip: Always choose a room with a view of the ocean and pool.

Everything is great about this hotel except for the rooms. We got into Maui at 7:00 pm which was 2:00 am our time and were exhausted. Even though we knew we were just renting a room for one night to crash in, it was pretty bad. We both said that if we had to stay here for our vacation we would cry. We paid $ 150 plus tax and $ 5 parking for their highest room category which included breakfast.

The staff could not be nicer. The pool and area around it looked great. The restaurant was very nice and the breakfast and service there were excellent! Good parking.

The rooms, even our top tier room, were awful. They are so dated. The bed was o.k. comfortable and we didn't notice any noise which was nice after a full day of travel. The rooms are just so dated, like a hotel that hasn't been updated in 40 years. Very depressing but o.k. for one night after our long flight to Maui before heading to a nice accommodation. We ended up paying $ 145 a night for a beachfront condo in Lahaina through VRBO which went for twice that at the hotel itself. A lot of people stay at this Maui Seaside hotel because it's "cheap" but you can get waaaaay better for the same money if you search private owners on VRBO.

We would never stay here again, even for one night unless we had no choice. It's sad because everything about the place is amazing except for the terrible rooms. They would be $ 50 anywhere in Canada or mainland USA.

We satyed here because our previous stay was good.

The laundry facility is handy and it has moved into a new, smaller room. It's set up well though and even has a sink now. Very useful.

The staff here was really friendly this time and attended to us asap. Very nice to have in a hotel.

The restaurant for breakfast was great. Huge, delicious portions of food that arrived super quickly. The service was top notch as well. Staff was constantly checking on us and topping up our drinks. The selection is small for the included breakfast package, so if your staying more than 4 days I'd say opt out of it and instead walk in each morning to enjoy the full menu choice.

Only negative to my review/stay is the hotel condition. It's an older place and it's starting to show it's age. It's at the point that reno's are necessary, especially to attract younger people and others that care about appearance. It's a great place, but the dated look to is starting to overshadow the great deal it is.

I stayed at the Maui seaside for the first time. My stay there was for five days and it is worth returning to. I stayed in room 319 The room size was good I had a double and a single bed in the same room the room was good and the cleanliness was fantastic as well. The beds were comfortable and were fortunate enough to have the luxury of having breakfast as part of the package at the Tantes Restaurant. The food there was okay too. The swimming pool was in the heart of the hotel complex (next to the reception area) the staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. The place looks neat and immaculate with the lawns and flower beds well maintained. The hotel complex seems fairly old bit it is well maintained and nicely renovated too. The coconut trees around the hotel complex give it a real tropical paradise feel and the beach is just next door too. This hotel is very quiet even though there is a major road running which runs past it. It is close to the Maui malls and the Queen center. The airport is less than 10 mins away which was another bonus. My only concern about this hotel was that there was a limited number of parking spots available although I prefer the alternative which was park in an area adjacent to the hotel complex near a car dealership which was at no cost The other concern that I had was that I could hear water running in the room next door through the hotel room walls.
