Fodor's Review

Right on the ocean, though a bit of a stroll to the center of Lahaina, this breezy, two-story inn features small units with fully equipped kitchens and casual interiors all topped with a dollop of aloha. The one-bedroom units are at least 400 square feet, with four special Hideaway rooms featuring private lanais a leap from the water. Families will appreciate the two-bedroom Pineapple Sweet, populated with tropical prints atop comfy furniture, island art, and lanais perfect for crafting poetry. Suzie, the owner, lives on the property, and keeps a flock of cheerful Java sparrows well fed throughout the lovely garden courtyard. Note: the Makai Inn maintains "quiet hours" around the clock, for the continual peace and quiet for their guests.

Very dissatisfied

This property could be a gold mine but our room #20 was a huge disappointment. So much of it was dirty. The bathroom, shower/bathtub was gross as were the shelves. The ceiling fans were covered in dirt and grime. My husband found a lump of jam by the bed covered in dirt and hair. Updating is needed and a good cleaning would be in order. We have stayed in many budget properties and as long as they are clean we have no issue with most details. I have

the photos to prove it. The garden was lovely and so was the view but that was about it. I would not recommend this property until they clean it properly!
