We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, especially the lanai overlooking Front Street, and the inn's location by the marina & Banyan tree. The restaurant & bar had a nice happy hour and menu, and we loved a wonderful fish dinner one evening. We'll stay again for sure!!

My husband and I stayed 1 week at the Pioneer Inn. We went to Maui to celebrate my birthday. We decided to stay at the Pioneer Inn because it was small and not one of the big resort hotels which we would not have liked. I read all the Trip Advisor reviews and called to make the reservations. The woman...

Went to Maui and stayed at the historic Best Western Pioneer Inn. Katherine checked us in and it was the great start to a great stay. Katherine explained everything [history, rustic nature of the building, free parking, dining, and happy hour] as we checked in. We really enjoyed the location of the room with a balcony overlooking Front St. Waling...

Right in the heart of historic Lahaina it is a great location with a lot of restaurants and shop. Easy access to activities.. as the harbor is right across the street. Right next-door to the famous Banyan tree that takes up a whole block. Parking is provided across the street behind the Baldwin House Muesum! Pretty easy access to anything....

We needed a one night stay in Lahaina before we spent the next three weeks in a condo. It was very clean and comfortable small but adequate. It is a old hotel so you have to drag your bags up to the second floor. Staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant for breakfast was good. We would stay again if...

We love the old time charm of this Hotel. It has a restaurant and a bar that were a lot of fun. Everything you could want is in walking distance. The grounds are kept nice and clean. Staff is very helpful.

I'm a resort girl but decided to "rough it" at a Best Western. Thank heavens I did! This quaint, historical hotel is literally a gecko jump from the Lahina Harbor. The cruise ships and day excursions are out the front doors of Pioneer Inn. All of downtown Lahina is right there and you can walk to everything. Parking and WiFi...

If you want to be steps away from restaurants, bars, shopping this is an excellent spot, there's a beach 10-15 min walk either way as well. If you want peace and quiet don't stay here as you get the chance to be right in the middle of the heart of Lahaina. Great patio deck from your room where you can...

Just back, and we can say we had a very wonderful stay at the Pioneer Inn. It is not a billion dollar resort that we typically stay, but it is a wonderfuly maintained hotel. The room was clean, and the bed very comfortable. We were located on the back side, in room 28, Overlooking the pool. The ambience the Pioneer...

I already explained noise problem on previous page. It was very close to a fist fight with the next door tourist. Please refer back to my description on the previous page of this review. At the very least, fix all front and back doors to avoid slamming and loud noise. As well as the chairs on the lanai.
