The Maui Seaside left MUCH to be desired. The room was tiny and rundown, with ancient 70's style decor. The AC did not work well at all, and housekeeping turned it off each day when they came to clean, meaning we returned from each day of sightseeing to a steaming hot room that took hours to cool again.

The location is central, pool and grounds are actually quite nice. I was there for a conference so it was convenient for me, but this is most definitely NOT a vacation spot.

Considering that the place is not particularly nice, it is definitely overpriced. For $20 more, you can get a MUCH nicer and more modern place. They give you breakfast coupons for their highly overpriced and not particularly good restaurant, again, not worth it.

Stay away-- try the town of Kihei if you want something not too far from Central Maui.

Maui is beautiful, but what a disappointment we had with this place.
The rooms themselves were adequate, but tropical paradise this is not!
When you go to the beach (if you could call it that) by the hotel, you
get a view of a shipyard. Spend more money and get a nicer place in
paradise.

The hotel was just okay, but you get for what you pay. Don't expect anything and you won't be disappointed. The room was clean but the air conditioner was noisy. We had a partial ocean view which was nice. You can walk out to see ocean but you can't swim there. The hotel is conveniently located; near by shopping areas, KMart, Costco, and centrally located for driving within all the key tourist sites. If you won't be staying much in the room and don't need the frills and 'vacation' environment, then this hotel will do.

this hotel looks little bit old inside , outside but i could feel very relaxed atmosphere when i enter the lobby. This area is very convenient and you can find a couple of shopping mall with easy drive. You may not like this hotel if you want to enjoy bathing time.(shower room has no bath tub and the room is small, not very very small, i guess and water pressure is not so good)

there is a small fridge and one coffee table,two chairs in the room and we could enjoy some to-go foods there. the room was very clean and there was no funny smell like nicotine. AC worked pretty good. people who works there was very nice.

if you are very active tourists and don't spend too much time in the hotel and don't care too much details, this is the one you are looking for.
