In very poor shape, need major rehaul

The hotel is in pretty poor condition. Starting with the carpets in the hallway, the rusty shower in the room, the whole hotel needs major overhaul. There is not enough lighting in the hallway either.

Unbeatable Location in Kaanapali, for Budget Price

This budget-priced hotel is situated on the same property as the Royal Lahaina Hotel, which is a hotel that is considerably more pricey. The benefit of the Kaanapali Ocean Inn is that the property is right on the same beach as the Royal Lahaina Hotel and guests can share all of the amenities of the Royal Lahaina without paying the extra $100 per nite. The hotel itself is not very modern, and the rooms were not kept looking perfect, but for a place to sleep with a good location it is a good deal. Be mindful that the Luau takes place many nights within earshot of the south-facing rooms, so that is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on whether you want to hear the Luau performance or not. Overall, I would stay there again as it's a reasonably priced hotel for such a great location. On the downside, I think the hotel management could spend a few more dollars on the rooms ensuring cosmetic things do not become a distraction such as wallpaper peeling off the bathroom walls and burnt-out light bulbs not being replaced.

One can watch the Luau performance from the hotel without actually going to the Luau.

Nice location, otherwise a dive

On the water, but otherwise dirty and nasty. Jellyfish warning as well.
