I was in town on business and the hotel was very close to where I needed to be. The hotel while dated was exceptionally clean. The value at the restaurant was unbelievable. One night I made the suggestion of having a dinner meeting there, and the
doctor and consultant I had been meeting with all week were overly impressed with their meals. In fact two nights later the doctor suggested we go there again. Jake, the restaurant manager was kind and personable with every guest. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Maui.
If you are snob who only likes 4 and 5 star hotels, you will not be happy here. This hotel is the hotel where local Hawaiians stay and where average (not rich) travelers from the mainland stay. It is clean and the bed was very comfortable. It is 5
minutes from the airport and centrally located if you plan to visit all areas (the sunny NW beaches, Lahaina, Hana or Haleakala volcano) of Maui. In superficial looks, it is somewhere between a Motel 6 and a Hampton Inn. At first look you might think this is a bad hotel, but this is mainly because it is old. We liked it more and more each day (we stayed for a week). We found it very very clean in the rooms, even though the corridors need more lighting and renovations. We are now at the Embassy Suites at Waikiki on Oahu Island and we agree that the bed at Maui Seaside is better than the one at Embassy Suites. We would stay at Maui Seaside again. The value is GREAT.
From arrival to check out, the service was great! Starting at the parking we were greeted with Aloha and instructed where to check in. Check in was very simple and staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and quite. I would stay at the Maui
Seaside again! Mahalo nui!
Near the airport but far away from everything else!
The hotel was very clean and the bed was comfortanble. It was very close to the airport, but you need a car to go anywere else then that. Nearest beach (Kihei) is 30 min drive away. Lahaina is 1h away. The hotel was more like a motel, but our stay
was very pleasent. You get what you pay for. There is a restaurant in the hotel. Ask for a room near the pool.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Althoug it is expensive I would highly recomend helicopter ride with Alex air. It was epic, and I will never ever forget what I saw. We flew over the mountains and waterfalls. We even saw a whale family! We payed 270$ for 45 min ride.
Large room,1st floor, this is a old bldg, has been remodeled, the headboard mounted to the wall was not tight to wall so when I turned light on the table next to the beds, bugs started flying out .....I killed about 1/2 dozen...then called front
desk, they were very nice and got us another room, much smaller though, that room had a toilet that was loose and rocked on floor. The front desk did credit our room and parking fee and provided a free breakfast for the problems. I would try to stay there again,because of the kind people at the front desk. Thank you FRONT DESK EMPLOYEES!!!!
This hotel is nothing great, but it is what you looking for if you want to spend your bucks doing cool activities in Maui instead of in the hotel, where we spent little time. They had a nice swimming pool in front of the sea, useful computers that
guests could use and wi-fi. The rooms were fine and comfortable. Most of the staff were not the friendliest that I have ever seen but their restaurant waiters were much nicer and they had good breakfasts for a good price. Besides, the hotel is kind of in the middle of the island so nothing is really far away and the airport is less than 10 minutes drive. I would recommend it overall.
