The chief advantage of Kihei’s sole hotel is location, location, location. It’s less than a block from sandy, sun-kissed Kamaole Beach Park I and within walking distance of South Kihei Road’s bars, restaurants, and shopping. Another plus: nightly entertainment at the popular pool bar. Guest rooms are smallish, with sitting areas, huge flatscreen TVs, central air, and private garden lanais—no ocean views, though. Throughout the hotel, you’ll find wonderful paintings by local artist Avi Kiriaty. Book the less-expensive “deluxe room” over the somewhat cramped “one-bedroom suite,” unless you absolutely need the extra privacy. The ami ami restaurant serves reasonably priced local and organic dishes.
