“Quiet location”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Lahaina Shores Beach Resort good location, nice rooms but vary considerably. We were originally given a room on the 2nd floor, a room with very basic décor and only a double bed. When I stressed that I had requested 2 beds with the reservation, we were told none of those rooms were available and given a room on a higher floor with a king-sized bed and slightly better décor. The beach was pleasant. This is a great hotel for those who do not need a fancy resort with a bar, restaurant, and golf course.

The only negative aspect of our time at Lahaina Shores was the shortage of parking spaces. Many of the cars in the lot never moved while we were there. I wondered if people had rented cars for a week, primarily to reach the hotel from the airport, and rarely used them otherwise. We rented a car for two days in order to visit Haleakala. The other days, we traveled around Maui on the public Maui Bus system. There are several routes, but not enough to be confusing. One route has a stop not far from the hotel; buses on the other routes can be taken from the shopping center in the middle of Lahaina. We saw many tourists staying in the resorts north of Lahaina taking the public buses, but few taking it from Lahaina. Maybe people are not aware that it is available. (Be aware that large suitcases are NOT allowed on these public buses.)

Lahaina is now my favorite town in Hawaii, surpassing Hilo; both are classic towns evocative of the Old Hawaii. Though Lahaina and the Lahaina Shores Beach Resort are very nice, I doubt that I will return because the high prices are not justifiable to me – even given the distance and cost for shipping food and materials. One less tourist in Hawaii, and more room for those of you who love it, and can afford it. Enjoy!

We had a mountain view room and loved the beautiful scenery that would constantly change with the weather. The room was a little old and tired but it was very clean and in a great location and with a balcony so it was a great place to relax too which made up for it. Also they offer free wifi and cheap parking ($8 a day) which is not too bad at all. The kitchenette was large and useful, we scrubbed everything first as I was not sure of the cleanliness of it but that's standard procedure right? :) We would stay again.

Positive
+ Location just next to the ocean
+ friendly and helpful staff
+ very good location right on the beach, close to Lahaina but still away from the noise and busy life of Lahaina center

Negative
- old furniture and smelly rooms
- very uncomfortable beds

All in all we liked our stay. The hotel has a lot of potential but needs to refurbish urgently its rooms!

We stayed in Lahaina Shores beach resort during our last trip to Maui. Ours was a mountain facing studio room. It was very spacious and the best thing was we had a kitchen as well. The mountain view was tremendously beautiful as we were not very keen for ocean facing room. The swimming pool, Jacuzzi were really good. And the beach of the hotel was great as well. The only thing I didnt like about this hotel was it did not have a spa :( and also there is no restaurant in the hotel. The best thing is its very close to the front street which is according to me the second best part of this hotel. We booked our package through Costco travel and we really got a good package for 4 nights. I would totally recommend it.

This is a beautiful resort nestled on the beach in Lahaina, Maui, HI. We were only able to stay one night, but they were very accommodating to allow us to check out late at no additional charge (just an hour or so but it really helped us). The staff was very polite and helpful and the room was incredible! We can't wait to go back and stay there again. Very spacious room, clean, ocean view (so the sunsets are amazing right from the balcony). Close to restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view for sure!

Beautiful hotel with amazing views! We had a corner unit on the mountain side with a great view of the water/sunsets. The only odd thing was they do not have a business center to use to check in to our flight. Other than that, pool was clean, room was clean and big!, and pool area was relaxing. It's very quiet and I love the quiet. FYI - No fitness center...

Lahaina Shores is a short walk from the centre of Lahaina, which has a great choice of restaurants and lots of beautiful old buildings to check out. Lahaina's a good choice if you want to get away from the masses of tourists at Ka'anapali, a little further north. The beach isn't as good, but the bus heads north every hour and is really cheap. Purchase the $4 day ticket. The condo style rooms at the hotel are large and well fitted out with everything you need. We bought groceries (make sure you shop at Foodland on the other side of the town centre and give them your phone number to get awesome discounts on everything) and we had cheap, yummy breakfasts and lunches. The bed was a bit soft but apart from that, the ocean view room was great. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel's a little on the pricey side, but everything on Maui is.
