The Aston Maui Lu is a budget-friendly hotel on Maui, which is more like a condo stay than a catered hotel, but you can make full use of the outdoor picnic areas and barbecue stations in the ever-present sunshine. Occupying multiple buildings across 28-acres of fragrant coconut grove and pristine lawn, it's the perfect backdrop for a recharge, with a private, postcard-worthy Hawaiian beach straight ahead. The resort sets you up for everything from whale-watching (November to April) from your private lanai, to a blissful float through the Maui-shaped swimming pool, or even lesson in basket-weaving. Find out what a night of Polynesian revelry is really like at the Aston Maui luaus, with a fiery finale of music and dance, three times a week.

Neighborhood
The hotel is located in Maalea Bay and the wider area of Kihei, in southwest Maui. Start the day local-style at Da Kitchen or try Kihei Cafe for a more all-American breakfast of omelets or cinnamon rolls. Book a dive charter or sunset sail at Maui Dive Shop, then finish the day at South Shore Tiki Lounge, a genuine tiki bar beloved by locals for its rum punches and dessert cocktails. The historic whaling town of Lahaina is just up the coast and tells its story at the whale museum, between plenty of independent art galleries and local shops.
Hints and tips
Guests looking for absolute peace, with only the sound of the tide, should ask for rooms in the 400 building, which has its own private cove.

There is no on-site restaurant, so pick up some snacks from Safeway or Foodland stores to the south and stock up the in-room mini-fridge.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

Beautiful Traditional Maui

No hotel on Maui offers the peaceful, historic and absolute beauty of the magnificent and special Aston Maui Lu. The 28 acres of trees, birds, plants and pool, combined with convenient beach access and the ever present majesty of Haleakala are breathtaking. No matter how hectic the Maui pace, the Aston Maui Lu always provides a serene island retreat to return to. Also, the staff is kind, helpful, dedicated and truly professional in every respect. I have never missed a place more after leaving than the Aston Maui Lu.

What a dump

The description of the hotel is accurate, it "offers a wonderful atmosphere of OLD Hawaii;" the key word is old. This hotel was beyond old and seriously needing renovations. In the bathroom drains did not drain, floors and tub were stained, things were generally dingy, even though they seemed like they were clean. The sofa in the room was dingy and yellowed with much too many years of use. The drapes were utterly disgusting, stained, torn, hard to operate, yellowed with age. The bed was extremely hard and not very comfortable. One of the bedside lamp's switch didn't work most of the time and when it did it tripped the breaker on the power strip it was plugged into. The light for the exterior entrance to the room was controlled by a switch inside the room so if you were going to be gone all day you had to remember to turn on the light before leaving in the morning. The door locks did not lock by themselves which on it's own is fine, but the maids did not lock the deadbolt after cleaning the room, only the flimsy knob. The building itself was in generally bad condition too. There was visible termite damage in the room as well as all over the exterior of the building. Some of the siding on the building was falling off or missing. The place did have some positives: the staff was extremely nice and helpful and the location was good. The pool was very nice and clean. The cleaning staff tried hard and the room was generally clean but I'm not sure how they could really clean the bathroom well if the drain doesn't work.

Aston Maui Lows

This place needs some TLC Just some paint would help a lot. The windows are very old jealosly type that is not only not secure but lets in all the noise. The carpet is old and stained. The towels are low quality and you only get two bath towels a day.

Never Again!

Do not stay at this hotel - would not classify as a 1 star hotel. Everything in hotel was from 1975 including the mattresses.

Great price...but needs renovation!!

It was a great deal pricewise but nothing to brag about. It's old Hawaii alright! Really needs total renovation and updating. Such a quiett location and beautiful grounds but no room appeal at all. Elevator carpeting was the first turnoff and the room carpeting was almost as bad. Associates were very friendly. Room was as clean as possible and bed was comfy, but with old carpet, lino, and furniture, even clean looks dirty! Not inviting.

family vacation

the hotel itself is a health hazard, the carpet stink and the bathroom was not clean. I red another review prior to book this hotel and I did not believe it that was as bad as described by another person, but was true 100%, if you find a good review for this hotel is probably because the hotel's manager or somebody to get pay did it. The customer service is bad and the statement that you will get complimentary breakfast is another lie, there is not complimentary breakfast, you have to listen a tour sales from the concierge of the hotel if you want to get a cup of juice and a mini muffin.

Not recomended

The room was not clean. Dirt from the air conditioner hanging from the ceiling. The bottom of the bathroom door had soap scum. The air conditioner was near plugged. The carpet smelled of mold. I realize that the hotel was old but that does not excuse the maintenence not being kept up.

Not recommended

This place needs a renovation like yesterday. Old, smelly, run down. I read the reviews prior to booking this place, but I always like to give the under dog a chance. What a huge mistake that was. If you do stay here, you must have a rental car, for there is no restaurant, or activities on site or even close, so taxi rides can get very expensive. When I entered the room, I wondered why there were no comforters or bedspreads, then I figured out thats because the a//c in at least three of the rooms, I'm sure there were others, I just didn't ask anyone else.The highest rating was for the staff, and the is mainly due to the maintenance crew that drove me over from the ocean front rooms to the office, by way of cart. Oh and the room safe doesn't not look safe.

Long Drugs, is a good place to buy items, its like CVS, which now owns them. Its open 24 hours and the prices are the same as home, where as there others are much more expensive.

Dirty and dilapidated

The first hint this place would be dilapidated was the fact they are still using actual keys. Next on the way to the parking we saw the burned out remnants of one of the buildings. then on the way to the room you will notice a strong smell coming from any room with an open door. The furnishings (including box spring and matress) appear to be at least 25 years old. The carpet is filthy, when I put down the bath mat it turned black in places from the dirt on the bathroom floor. The air conditioner was covered with mold. The room was so dark even with the light on I did not even notice how bad the walls were until the morning when I opened the curtain. The wall paper was missing in places and had been painted over in larger areas to cover who knows what.
