Solo traveler in Maui--where to stay?

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am planning a trip to Maui for 4 days, 5 nights in Maui and I am having trouble deciding where to stay. I am a female young professional in my late 20s and will be traveling by myself. I want to hike/bike at Haleakala National Park, check out Road to Hana, go to the beach (I can't swim so I'll just be laying out), enjoy local food and coffee, and just chill. With that said, where would be best to stay? I was thinking Kihei because it's affordable (my budget is $130/night max but I'm flexible, given I only have a few weeks until my trip) and also I could walk around at night and enjoy restaurants and bars, but this area hasn't gotten very good reviews overall. What do you guys think of Kihei? Any other suggestions for lodging? I'm looking for a place that's clean and NOT outdated or dingy. It doesn't have to be beautiful, fancy, with marble/stainless steel, just something that does NOT feel like you're staying in your older cousin's basement.

Any suggestions would be great!!! Thanks.
