This place and staff were excellent. The building reeked of history and nostalgia. Food was very good and service was excellent. Front office staff was helpful at every turn. They even provided computer accommodations for us to print our airplane boarding passes upon departure. We had a wonderful balcony overlooking the street life and shops. Well within walking distance of...

If you love history, you will love this hotel location. What a cute little hotel right in the middle of town, walking distance to shops, restaurants and to all the historical buildings like the Baldwin House, The Banyan Tree, Court House, etc. The only thing I dislike about this hotel was their lighting. Every light in the hotel room was...

I grew up in Wailuku nearly 70 years ago and have not had the opportunity to stay at the Pioneer Inn. However, I was pleasantly surprised on this trip, with the hotel property, the staff, and adjoining restaurant. I would definitely recommend others to stay here and I would consider staying here again when the opportunity arises.

Stayed overnight as we were taking in the Hawaii Tasting Tour and did not want to drive on the same evening. The hotel is a charming, historic gem with great view of Lahaina evening life. Only, yet very significant issue, was trying to sleep with the LOUD music from a neighboring establishment. I tossed and turned until the 1 PM...

We are so sorry the music from a neighboring restaurant disturbed your sleep. We do try to work with our neighbors to keep the noise level down but we weren't very successful the night you stayed with us. I apologize for that. Next time you might request a courtyard room which is away from the music and quiet.

This is a beautiful old building with lots of history, right in the middle of the warf area. All the food and shopping a tourist could want. With the added bonus of the Harbor at the front door. All the water activities that Maui has to offer right there, just a few steps away. Whale watching, scuba, snorkeling, sight seeing,...

The hotel has an awesome location if you are staying in Lahaina. The staff at the front desk and the housekeepers were helpful and warm. We enjoyed the restaurant for breakfast and the discount coupon given at check in was a pleasant surprise. While in Lahaina we walked everywhere because the hotels location is great.

Staying here is just like going back in time for over 100 years. The location adds to the stay, right at the harbor and next to the banyon tree. You are in the center of all the action where so much history took place. Having your own porch with rocking chairs and to watch all of the action at the...

Stayed at Pioneer Inn for its close proximity to the Maui=>Lana'i Expeditions passenger ferry. It's a 1 min walk to the dock. The Inn is quaint and everything I thought it would be. The Inn was built in 1901 and feels right at home on Front st across from the famous Banyan tree. Our room was on the corner of...

We stayed here two nights at the beginning and end of our trip to Hana. Checking in and out was a breeze with the helpful staff. We were even able to get in a bit before the check-in time, which was a huge blessing after a long day of traveling. Our room and the whole facility actually was clean and...
