This place is DATED ( don't trust the pictures online, colors aren't that vibrant, much more brown), not many amenities, and while they have a friendly and Hawaiian feel and staff it is just not an exciting place to be. If you do vacation here, do NOT rent a big car, I didn't have a big car but I saw...

Always great to return. Just spent 14 wonderful days at KBH. Rooms are clean and spacious service is great and there is great restaurant. Close to everything there is to see and on the best stretch of beach on Maui.

I'd stayed here 20 years ago and it was fairly dated then and I don't think anything had changed in the interim. Our room was a good size but really thats about all I can say in a positive sense other than it was pleasant sitting under the frangipani trees in the shade. The lobby feels like you're walking into...

We really enjoyed our stay. While the hotel is one of the oldest, the rooms were very comfortable. All have balconies with chairs to sit outside and enjoy the environment. Our ocean view room gave us clear sight of the sunset when we were there for it. The shower got hot immediately and the closed bathroom area had a light...

I stayed here once before and thought it was decent. This time around, we came for our honeymoon and I was truly embarrassed to bring my new husband to a place like this. The staff was nice enough to upgrade us to oceanview since it was our honeymoon. However, the hotel is completely outdated and seems like it has not...

I made reservations last summer and then read Tripadvisor reviews for almost 10 months. In retrospect, people seem to love this hotel or not. However, our six family members truly enjoyed their stay at KBH! It was like visiting a long ago neighbor who opened their rooms, their backyard, their hearts with warm hospitality. From the wonderful woman, Beverly, who...

This is a great, traditional Hawaiian hotel. It is not the most modern (the rooms could use a little pick-me-up), but the staff, beach and culture is terrific! Smaller pool, but offers a great section of beach. They have complimentary lessons in Hawaiian culture such as hula and ukulele lessons. Rooms are spacious and great size for families. The farewell...
