Gourmet Breakfast at the Old Wailuku Inn

Pin It


A Historic Inn
with a Gourmet Breakfast!


If you've ever stayed near the Kahului Airport on Maui, you know there are only two hotel options. For some crazy reason, I always book the 6 am flight out of OGG and hate traveling from Kaanapali Beach or Wailea at the crack of dawn to get to the airport. I'm sure there's more options in the area.

This trip, I was in Central Maui for the Maui County Agricultural Festival and was glad to stay at The Old Wailuku Inn. OK, I didn't really know about it, I'm not quite the B&B kind of guy; I watch late night SportsCenter, eat snacks, do my best work late at night, and don't really eat breakfast. But, I'm always up for an adventure and went with an open mind and empty stomach...(sounds like Iron Chef)



The Old Wailuku Inn at Ulupono

This 10 room property was ranked Number 5
on Travel + Leisure magazine's Top Ten U.S.
Bed and Breakfast list.


What I found was a very nice historic home in a quiet residential part of Wailuku and not too far from the airport. The bonus was the innkeepers were just as nice as the property. The second bonus was the full gourmet breakfast served every morning at 8:00 am.
