Maui Seaside Hotel

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by Foxboro Marmot on December 3, 2003

There's only one reason to stay at the Maui Seaside: it's close to the airport. The Maui Seaside Hotel is on the Kahului waterfront, but it's not a beach by any means. Kahului harbor is a working port with good sided cargo and container ships moving in and out. There's a small pool in the hotel courtyard, but no one should ever use this hotel as their Maui destination.

Rooms are good sized, but oddly empty. They cry out for accessories like a sofa and a couple of wing chairs, but only have small round table and a pair of chairs.

So why stay here? If you have a flight that gets you into Maui late in the evening after a big time change, you might prefer to stop here rather than driving cross-island to Kihei or Kaanapali in a jet-lagged stupor. If you have an early morning flight out, do you really want to get up at 5am, drive cross-island, return the rental car, and get into line at the airport the recommended 90 minutes before departure, or would you rather take the hotel shuttle over? This hotel is recommended ONLY for those special cases.
