Centrally located in the heart of downtown Kahului, on the shores of picturesque Kahului Bay, the Maui Beach Hotel is just minutes from Kahului Airport, shopping, beaches and golf courses. Rooms and suites decorated in a lovely island style, offer ocean, garden or city views. In addition to an on-site restaurant, lounge, swimming pool, and fitness center, there are meeting rooms and a ballroom, making it a perfect location for business conferences and weddings.
It’s a $11 ride by taxi without tip from the airport. They offer a free shuttle as part of the resort fee but it only runs certain hours. It’s about 3 blocks down from the Maui Mall which has a Whole Foods and a Regal Cinema as well as several fast food places. However, being on a main strip means lots of traffic and lots of noise.
The property is on the beach and it’s balmy in the evening. It’s an tired old place; a $250 a night budget hotel at best. As hoped the Road to Hana tour starts and end there. So I saved $80 a night my first two nights by staying there when I flew in and returning there after my day tour, before traveling to Lahaina for two more nights in Maui. Not sure if it was worth it. It was clean and I did not have any personal security issues. But it didn’t have a good feeling about staying there. It would have helped to have a room with a balcony where I could sit rather than being in the dreary room. I assume one has to pay more for that. Also, areas like the little gym where lacking even basics; for example the smallest weights where 15 pounds.
Started by picking up the rent a car. Next we went to costco to load up
Weather was perfect, this was a rest and relaxing trip, we still worked out and ran along the beach
Was great , with 8 bbq to do the fixings. Room had full kitchen with a stacked washer dryer
Resort was close to town, with buses running hourly into town
Safeway’s outlet mall, and food of choice was down town
It does the job
Minutes from the airport and across the street from a mall where you can find anything for much less price than touristic places. It is ok for the price, run-down definitely but clean, rooms are clean and have everything you need, the restaurant only good food is breakfast (overpriced tough for the food...) Staff is friendly but don't expect much, you can save $$ staying here, most tours will pick you from here and the location is actually quite convenient to visit from here any of the major places to see in Maui. Nice rooftop pool.

Our agent booked this hotel and they will be informed to do their homework on our return. By the way the agent was 'Trailfinders" voted one of the best in the UK. (not impressed}
The hotel was dated, grubby, and the room smelt musty. One night was too long. We then pay a $15 resort fee for what? It was apparently already included in the negotiated room rate. We would have left but arrival from airport was very late.
There is no beach although the location is attractive.
Do not stay here if you have any standards. It does Maui a disservice.
Very nice staff eager to make your stay memorable. The beachfront view from out room was spectacular. Nice shopping mall within walking distance. Sea turtles were right in the water swimming with you. If the ocean was rough the pool was just right.Can't wait to go back!
